The Hospital Bed by Dotkom

Posted 07 May 2010   Mixes

Worried ShoesThankfully THE FIRST appetite that returned after my stay inside the hospital was for MUSIC.  If you have ever been in that situation you know that sometimes allot of blurry memories make for a collage of sights, sounds & feelings.  I Just mashed up everything while heavily medicated and came up with this mix.  I was in the hands of SOME AMAZING PEOPLE for that week and I’d somehow like them to know how much that extra love meant while I was so scared & confused.  REALLY CRAZY mix as I re-listen.  I honestly considered never posting any of these mixes because they are so self-involved and cathartic but what the heck.  The more I learn about life and “living” the more I think that getting my feelings out there via music & re-telling of “stories” or media IS COMFORTING.  Yes I was the little kid talking in the movie theater, then RE-TELLING lines from movies horribly afterward. All the while falling in love with music and not even knowing it.  Enjoy: “The Hospital Bed” a playlist/mixtape/podcast thingy dedicated to my Family & my Friends that I was lucky enough to have thinking about me while I was laid up.
