I really struggled with what to make for this years Summer of Giles, but I decided that because it is number ten I should make something a bit different.

So, I made a playlist focussed on Giles when he is lonst and alone, trying to find his place in the world - and then I made a poster for each song.

Now, I'm really sorry, but I struggle with formatting on LJ as it is and I completely failed at formatting a multi-media thing like this so HERE is a link to all of the posters on Tumblr - each has a youtube video of the song underneath it so you can experience both at the same time.

There is also an 8tracks playlist HERE if you just want to listen to the music.

Enjoy!
(and sorry again for hosting it on different platforms)

Medium: Fanmix
Rating: R as it's rock/pop music but artwork is worksafe

This is a Buffy/Giles Post Chosen mix. The world has changed, how will they adapt?

Medium: Fanmix
Rating: Will go with R for language/themes - its rock/punk so headphones may be advisable

These songs are probably more to Ripper's taste or Giles' when he's feeling a bit Ripperish. Hope you enjoy!

For my first SOG offering, I have a Ripper-inspired fanmix. These songs were released and popular from the time Giles left school and avoided the Council and his destiny, approximately 1970-79, and very possibly would have been ones he would have listened to and enjoyed during that time. I have figured this timeline roughtly from the Giles entry in the Buffy wiki, but I am ignoring specific details it includes, and only refer to the minimal details we get regarding Giles' time as Ripper from the television canon. In other words, I'm ignoring any details brought to light by any comic, S8-9 or otherwise.

Below are images - one cover and two rears with track listings. I have also included detailed liner notes - I really tried to do a lot of research for this, so I hope they are helpful. You can download all the tracks, with images and notes, at this link HERE.

Please note I have marked this as being G/FRC, which the images and text all are. The songs may have some FRT language in them, though, as a heads up.

Enjoy!

I think I'm finally happy with the front and back cover art although I'm never happy with the fanmix titles :D. Art is worksafe, music - well it's rock so the requisite warnings apply.

I think a music lover/musician like Giles would have quite an impressive number of Beatles/Beatles alum tunes in his repertoire. These are favorites of mine and ones I'd have love to have heard Giles perform at the Expresso Pump or the Bronze or his home or ... :D I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that I don't need to post lyric snippets, but if anyone has any questions as to why a song was included or needs lyrics etc, just let me know. Track 21 is a bonus track of ASH performing live on BBC Bristol.

Hopefully I'll be back a bit later with a few wallpapers provided I don't wind up working overtime again :(

A Fanmix of Definitions


I suppose you could call it capitalizing on those wonderful picture definitions of earlier, but I prefer to think of it as expanding into necessary territory. I had this thing half done, and between one thing and another this is just the natural pattern that it fell into. I found myself thinking about what defines the man that we know (kudos, Katekat1010, and no, I’m not trying to move in on your territory, either, honest) and how someone else may have seen those definitions defined in youth.

And as far as worksafe goes... I don't know, can you get away with Seether wherever you work?
And here's the whys and wherefores to go with it )

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Title: Modern Favorites
Paring: Giles, Giles/?
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: The art work is all worksafe, the music, well it's rock 'n roll so headphones are always advisable if your workplace is sensitive. I don't recall anything too shocking though.


These are more modern tracks that I think Giles would listen to/perform. I had an interesting time choosing the divider pics as I didn't really plan for lyrics but rather for artist/style, but hope you'll like.

Oh, and ASH is auctioning the jacket he is modeling on the front cover for charity. Details can be found here at his official site.

Alternate versions of BONUS Track #1 are available on iTunes.

This is a rather large file, approx 75 MB.
Zip file with MP3s and images

I've had a ridiculously fun time making these fanmixes so thanks for letting me play DJ for a bit. I have one more day lined up next month which will probably be more graphics oriented (wallpapers and/or icons).

Thanks everyone and enjoy the summer!

*This is my first time posting to [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles so if I've not followed the proper formatting rules, the mods are free to smack me, or better yet send Giles to do it :) *

I've created 2 fanmixes to share today. Both fanmixes are from Giles' POV. The songs in this mix are "newer" songs by artists Giles probably had in his record collection. The other mix will be in a post later today.
