    So I have an extremely unhealthy obsession with this novel, and having too much time on my hands, I decided to compose a playlist to go along with the plot of Blood Meridian. Each song to fit a specific plot point in the overall story. Enjoy.

    All obsessives are welcome here, though I wish your handle/moniker was less rude. An interesting-looking soundtrack and I will have to listen to it when I have time, thanks.

    Started out as a self-deprecating joke during High School and stuck with it ever since. Is there a way to change your name?

    The mix is great. I don’t know most of these bands but I really like it.

    Well, the mix is pretty good, not the first one I have listened too; probably won’t be the last.

    One criticism: any soundtrack of BLOOD MERIDIAN needs to be seasoned with humor. Some black comedy relief. Shakespeare knew what he was doing when he put the drunken gatekeeper into Macbeth. It needs something like the mock-Beethoven in the soundtrack to Sargents 3.
