    The forest was shrinking, but the trees kept voting for the axe, for the axe was clever and convinced the trees that because his handle was made of wood, he was one of them.

            • A Moment of Silence

              As highlighted in the announcement note atop the site, and as further explained in Carbon's post here, last Thursday the world lost the bright soul that is Serby.

              Like many other posters, I was shaken by the news. Serby, formerly serbia95riri, was most active during what I'd consider the peak years of UKMix: 2011-2013. His favourite artist was Rihanna, which meant our paths crossed on a regular basis, but even beyond our on-site banter and discussion, Serby and I communicated off the site fairly regularly for several years, and even after we fell out of touch, he'd check in with me every now and again, particularly the last two times hurricanes struck the Bahama islands, to see if me and my family were safe. He was a sweetheart that way. I have fond memories of our conversations as teenagers, and just as recently as three months ago, we had a lovely chat, lamenting on how different adulthood is from what we envisioned it would be as teenagers.

              I'll best remember Nemanja for his kind spirit, iconic gaffes, activism in a variety of causes (veganism, LGBT+ rights), love of sociology, and sense of humour. It's a peculiar thing, UKMix. I've spent so many years on the site that I've developed a connection with people who I'll likely never meet, and Nemanja was someone I definitely bonded with. I never met him, but it does feel, in some ways, like I've lost a friend. We were the same age and faced similar challenges, so we had a lot of commonalities. It's a random fact to insert, but Nemanja was actually the person who introduced me to a site to resize images, and taught me how to use the tool to make my own avatars for the site. He was a knowledge-seeker, which I loved, and he enjoyed sharing that knowledge with others. I am aware, however, that whatever sense of loss I feel is but a pitiful fraction of the hurt his family and close friends must be enduring, so I can only hope that they are handling his loss healthily, and I hope they can celebrate all of the good that Nemanja did, and wanted, for the world.

              Music is the medium through which I process feelings I cannot adequately verbalise, so today's chart naturally has Nemanja's influence throughout. It features: some of his highlights from the epic Shawn Carter Tour he attended ("Run the World (Girls)", "I Miss You", "Love on Top"); two tracks from Jessie Ware, who he loved ("Say You Love Me" soundtracked a particularly poignant scene in Looking, a TV show we both loved); the ESC 2014 winning song that we both loved, which he was fortunate enough to see performed live three times ("Rise Like a Phoenix"); his favourite Born to Die track ("Carmen"); a song that he was adamant I listen to, which I ended up checking out and loving enough that it actually topped my chart back in 2013 ("Stimela"); and because I will forever remember him as my fellow Navy member, "G4L", an unofficial anthem among the fan base.

              So rest in peace, Nemanja. You were loved, and you will be deeply missed. <3

                          I've spent so many years on the site that I've developed a connection with people who I'll likely never meet, and Nemanja was someone I definitely bonded with. I never met him, but it does feel, in some ways, like I've lost a friend.

                          Music is the medium through which I process feelings I cannot adequately verbalise, so today's chart naturally has Nemanja's influence throughout. It features: some of his highlights from the epic Shawn Carter Tour he attended ("Run the World (Girls)", "I Miss You", "Love on Top"); two tracks from Jessie Ware, who he loved ("Say You Love Me" soundtracked a particularly poignant scene in Looking, a TV show we both loved); the ESC 2014 winning song that we both loved, which he was fortunate enough to see performed live three times ("Rise Like a Phoenix"); his favourite Born to Die track ("Carmen"); a song that he was adamant I listen to, which I ended up checking out and loving enough that it actually topped my chart back in 2013 ("Stimela"); and because I will forever remember him as my fellow Navy member, "G4L", an unofficial anthem among the fan base.
                          This was a beautiful tribute, Akini, and I love that you generated a playlist to remember him. You are so blessed to have had that connection, and it makes me wish I had known Serby better. I had a similar situation and even though it's been a couple years now, I still think of him when I hear certain songs.

                          Just highlighting the bolded part - he was definitely a friend to you. Just because it was all online doesn't change anything.

                            Yeah, I actually read through our old Facebook convos and I laughed, shed a few tears, and left the chat feeling even more sombre. What struck me is that he always so kind and sweet. Funny, yes. Intelligent, yes, but a sweetheart through and through.

                            Agreed! Reading through our chats made that even clearer.

                                  Looking at her recently released album's sales, a lot of people don't.

                                  I definitely encourage you to check out her latest LP, Songs for You. It's so good! At the very least, you should listen to "So Much Better".

                                    • Well, someone enjoys the new Tinashe! It looks like you like songs by her that have the word "Better" in them I checked both out and despite the titles, I think it's actually Know Better that is the so much better of the two.

                                      That Taylor Hicks song is a throwback. He was one of my least favorite winners though - I think he won more based on his personality and premature graying.

                                      yay for the Rolling in the Deep love the past few week or so!

                                        Yeah, I've never been a huge fan of Tinashe's, but this new album...it's special. So, so happy you checked out the top two, and I'm pleased you seem to have enjoyed "Know Better". For me, it's the standout track on a strong LP. "So Much Better" is so sexy, though!

                                        American Idol was a special show for me and my family. We would sit and watch it Tuesday and Wednesday nights religiously, and I feel like my family and I always had the same faves. In season five, we were collectively rooting for Chris Daughtry, but when he was eliminated, we felt the next best choice would've been Katharine McPhee. When Taylor won, we were floored. For many years, I considered his win a blemish in the show's history, and while I don't even think he was in the top 5 best options his season, I've made peace with it now. My family and I loved his "In the Ghetto" performance, though. You know, I've been in a big of a nostalgic AI mood and it's just insane how much that show's shaped my music taste. Granted, my username alone alludes to its influence, but even beyond that, my standard for vocal excellence stemmed from AI.

                                        I didn't appreciate "Rolling in the Deep" enough when it was released. Interesting fact: "Rolling in the Deep" didn't top my chart until (late) May 2012 despite it being among my top 20 songs of 2011. Certain lyrics hit me harder later on.
