Nuggets 245 – Justified

Nuggets 245 - Justified

A few months back I went through a ‘Justified’ phase. I watched all 4 series of this modern take on a western. While the lead actor – Timothy Olyphant  – is a bit bland, the show is well written and has excellent character actors. I particularly enjoy Walton Goggins who plays the charismatic villain Boyd Crowder.

If you haven’t caught up with the show it has a familiar plot; small town kid makes good in the big city and is then sent back to his hometown. In Justified home is Harlan Kentucky and the small town boy done good is Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Givens deals with villains who are usually his former school mates.

Flush with enthusiasm I put together this mix. In my mind’s eye the songs relate to characters with the theme song being track one. I did consider editing down a video with the characters and scenes that I was thinking of, but it didn’t happen. I have moved on and I am now fascinated by Äkta människor, a stylish Swedish Sci-fi about robots living among humans. Yep, short attention span.

Anywayz, I ended up with a most enjoyable mix. I will add some videos for the songs later.

Another ‘movin’ along’ mix featuring the usual suspects. I made this for friends who planned a road trip after getting married. The cover picture is one I took while in San Francisco last year. It’s the stairwell of  the fort under the bridge. The fort is very photogenic, a great spot to take wedding photos.

The Amazing start the playlist. Great tune, they are Swedish. The High Highs are from Brooklyn while Russian Red is the band headed by Lourdes Hernández who hails from Spain.

There you go, around the world in three songs.

In the video below James Vincent McMorrow looks uncannily like Charles Manson…
