[ Fanmix - A Break in the Monotony ]  
Medium: Live Action Television
Fandom: Unnatural History
Subject: General Series Mix
Warnings: Incredibly small spoilers for the finale in the cut. And LJ killed my sizing of the cover art. I'm to lazy to go in and fix it again.
Title: "A Break in the Monotony"
Notes: This has kind of been a pet project of mine for a couple of months. I wanted to put together a general series mix, for fans and for people who wanted to see what this series is about. I tried to pick fun, upbeat songs that (I felt) fit the overall tone of the show. I tried my hardest to stay spoiler free from the finale, but a quote wormed it's way in, and I couldn't take it out! Also, beware my fail coverart. Playing with Photoshop is proving to be a disastrous experience.

We Are Golden   ♫  MIKA
Teenage dreams in a teenage circus,
running around like a clown on purpose.

Here it Goes Again    OK GO
I guess there's got to be a break in the monotony,
but Jesus when it rains how it pours.

"No! That's not fun! Fun is hanging out with friends playing ping-pong and ordering pineapple pizza.
It's not slaying beasts, or stealing rubies, or driving cars through museums or falling into quicksand!"
"I had fun doing those things!"

- Henry and Jasper, "Speedle-mania"

If I go around with you,
you know that I'll get messed up too.

"No matter how hard I try to avoid it, trouble always seems to follow me"
- Henry, "The Griffin Gang"

The Great Escape    BOY'S LIKE GIRLS
We'll scream loud at the top of our lives,
and do things just 'cuz we're young.

She's A Genius    JET
That girl's a genius (wah-oh oh oh)
I think she's serious (wah-oh oh oh oh)

"Her dad's a CIA operative or something, she's crazy smart"
- Jasper (About Maggie), "The Victor Belongs to the Spoils"

Through Being Cool 
If you live in a small town,
you might meet a dozen or two
young alien types who step out,
and dare to delcare
we're through being cool

I'll Be There For You THE REMBRANDTS
Someone I'll always laugh with,
even my worst and best as you

"I'd hate to break up a good team"
Henry, "Past, Presidents and Future"

Don't let me play football,
I'll sack the quarterback
and jack the brother of the ball

"Why'd that guy throw a ball at your head?
"My father put him on academic probation last semester, retribution falls on me."
"We'll why don't you just kick him in the-"

- Henry & Jasper, "The Victor Belongs to the Spoils"

BONUS: Now We Can See - The Thermals

Also, I want you to know that I'm watching Friends and the mix started playing and the first one I heard was "I'll Be There For You" and I was confused as to why the theme song was playing as they were talking about Phoebe's cold.

Oh, God, I love this fandom. Downloading. Oh, hey, a mix that isn't sexually deviant!

Not gonna lie, this fandom has officially taken over my Livejournal. My Tuesdays are so empty now. :(

I figured somebody had to be the odd duck and make a Gen mix.

I KNOW RIGHT? I'm going to be totally lost without it. Hopefully Tower Prep will be good enough to keep me busy on Tuesdays, once it starts.

I suppose it had to be done eventually. There's something really musical about the show, somehow, that just begs to be mixed.

Also, you win +50 internets for Troublemaker. Not only because it totally fits like an opera glove, but also because Weezer is totally one of Jasper's favorite bands in my head.

Tower Prep looks awesome from the previews. And I'm an absolute sucker for superhero themed series.

And I totally agree- not only does it have an awesome soundtrack originally, but this mix was SO MUCH FUN. It's upbeat, fun, and just pretty much 10 different kinds of awesome.

LOL. That's exactly what I thought when I added it on the mix! I almost replaced it with another song, because while it worked in my head, I wasn't sure if the context would. But I figured Jasper would have Weezer on his Ipod, so it made the cut. x)
