A Perfect Rainy Day Thinking of Old Memories


Here is a straightforward mix I did last year. Something to listen to on rainy days...

And what does the rain say at night in a small town, what does the rain have to say? Who walks beneath dripping melancholy branches listening to the rain?

-Jack Kerouac

Hey! Nrv Net,
I was listening to Blentwell Podcast as usual and then "A Perfect Rainy Day... (MP3)" was played on my iTunes.
I listened to the whole of the mix twice,maybe three times. Normaly I like the other kinds of stuffs like House, Dub, HipHop and Electronica on Blentwell. But I love and enjoy yours lots. Big up from Tokyo!

Tokyo! Coolio! I'm glad you liked the mix yuk. Comments like yours make my efforts worthwhile. There will be more mixes posted soon. Thanks for listening.

I'm having a bugger of a time getting this or Tea with Brian Eno to download, are these files available anywhere else?

Wes,

Sorry you are having download problems! All of my mixes are hosted via my Switchpod ftp account. The links on my blog homepage link directly to the ftp. Here are the direct links:

Tea Time: http://www.switchpod.com/users/nrvnet/ftp/Tea_Time_at_Brian_Enos_House.mp3

Rainy Day:
http://www.switchpod.com/users/nrvnet/ftp/A_Perfect_Rainy_Day_Thinking_of_Old_Memories.mp3

Try copying them into your browser address bar and hit enter (make sure to highlight the entire line left to right even if you can't see it all). Or you can right click on the homepage link and select properties (in Windows) to see the URL. Unfortunately this is the only place my mixes are downloadable from.

But, if you are still having problems, send me an email at nrv_net@hotmail.com and I can send you something via IM or snail mail.

P.S. Wes: I tried downloading both files myself and it worked fine so please try again. If it still doesn't work then just send me an email (see above).

Another day, another computer and the downloads completed. Thanks, I'm listening now!

Hello,

I don't know how i reached your blog. I think I was stumbling for "ambient".
to get to the point: I've been listening for ambient for quite some time now. I don't play any other kind. In fact, I had started giving up on any hopes of finding new tunes, something unique... and then I found you, my friend. Seriously, I love your music. Simply love it!!!
I will be falling asleep tonight while playing this mix of yours.
keep it up!
Tokh.
