Fall begins at sundown tomorrow (in this hemisphere, anyway) and to celebrate my favourite time of year, I've put together a 6-track EP of songs that I think fit the season. Also, a little cameo by Cate Blanchett in the liner art, because she's been on my mind a lot lately (thank you, [livejournal.com profile] nerdish). Please enjoy!

'Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ' - George Eliot )

"Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. Since the dawn of time, roughly a hundred billion human beings have walked planet Earth. Now this is an interesting number, for by a curious coincidence there are approximately a hundred billion stars in our local universe, the Milky Way. So for every man who has ever lived, in this Universe there shines a star."

- Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A Space Odyssey

The Cabinet of Curiosities, by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child. I first read this book years and years ago, but it's still one of my absolute favourites. Set in New York City -- specifically, the Museum of Natural History -- it's a mystery/thriller with a little bit of the supernatural thrown in for good measure. Cabinets of curiosities were the early forerunners of modern museums; they were the repositories for the natural and the profane, containing everything from geological samples to skeletons of conjoined twins. Preston and Child's novel is like a cabinet in itself: it's got a little bit of everything. I absolutely recommend it.

"Sao Paolo", by the Guillemots might just be my favourite song in all the world, ever. This was the anthem for my last semester of undergraduate work. I was hanging on for six more required credits and I had moved out of the house off-campus and into this gorgeous dormitory seated at the fringe of the quad. The rooms were like cloister cells, but they had these incredible beveled glass windows -- done cathedral style -- and the common room was like something out of a German prince's castle. I listened to this song constantly. To me, it's a perfect theme for autumn; there's something ghosty about it, a little melancholy, and a lot passionate. Plus, it's like, eleven minutes long. I love it.
