christmas is coming up and you need to buy a gift for your man? (or your girl, actually) BAM! forage bow ties.
let’s just call these things what it is – the kind of post where time is squeezed but i can’t bear not to share.

this house (!!!)
and its opposite – this house
hey, want to move to sweden with me? malmö, specifically. it’s pretty cold there right now but we can hole up in this apartment. it’s for sale for R3,5m. did you know the swedish krona’s exchange rate is basically on par with the south african rand? i didn’t either. it makes me feel pretty great, except a coffee there probably costs 30 bucks which makes me feel the opposite. it’s okay, we can take our own coffee & live like monks! if you can bring the 3.5 million we’ll be set.
oh, you only have 1 million? let’s buy this one, then.
i could show you more but 100% of these apartments basically look the same inside.

i wasn’t really thinking of a theme at all when putting the mid-november mix together, just smashing together a bunch of songs i’ve been playing a lot lately. then i realised there may be a hidden theme as many of them are actually love songs. new love, old love, lost love… maybe even a bit of hate love. so there you have it.
lovin, touchin, squeezin. download it here. tracklist:
i would also like the clarify that the cover art is a tribute to movember. though it really should be beardvember, in my opinion. i suppose i wouldn’t mind lovin, touchin, and squeezin that fine ginger bearded fellow though.
