Wabi-Sabi – New 8tracks.com Mix

Wabi-Sabi

Japanese – Much has been written on this Japanese concept, but in a sentence, one might be able to understand it as a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay.

Ten tracks including music by Acidscar, Akira Yamaoka and Grey Spade.

New 8tracks.com Mix : Toska

Hey All,

Decided I’d upload another mix on 8tracks.com.  This one is called Toska.  It’s from that list of 20 untranslatable words.  It’s Russian.

Vladmir Nabokov describes it best: “No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody of something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.”

Feat. tracks by:

How To Destroy Angels
HORSE the band
Acidscar
Don Felder
Sigur Ros
Nine Inch Nails
and others…

Finished Grey Spade/Acidscar Ad ;)

This is the final version of my Electronic Publishing Ad assignment for the Grey Spade/Acidscar  2010 Qualia Tour.

Sharon, I took your advice and made the splotches more transparent and the narcissist in me decided to put a picture of of myself in the left corner.  😉  And I also moved the text around and changed some of the colours to make it more readable.
