This is amazing, there’s two sides to everything I guess. What makes it better is that it uses Sufjan Stevens instrumental ‘Out of Egypt, into the Great Laugh of Mankind, and I Shake the Dirt from My Sandals As I Run’ (Bit of a mouthful.) Also I quite liked the introduction with the ending of Orson Welles great film 'Citizen Kane.' 

it’s me, a mulder/scullly fanmix

listen

so easy - my brightest diamond // perfect symmetry - keane // severed crossed fingers - st. vincent // golden star - my brightest diamond // the night sky - keane // out of egypt, into the great laugh of mankind, and i shake the dirt from my sandals as i run - sufjan stevens // demons - dry the river // from eden - hozier // king and lionheart - of monsters and men
