Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Change is the Only Constant, Teen!

Watched the first episode of the new NBC series Constantine this week-end. I'm no Vertigo/DC Comics pantheon fan boy, but I like Hellblazer, Sandman, & a few similar comics. I liked the 2005 Constantine  movie (I'll admit I'm a fan of Ted 'Theodore' Logan…liked him since River's Edge, which although a work of fiction, was inspired by the actual murder of Marcy Conrad, who was killed by her boyfriend Anthony Jacques Broussard in Milpitas, California in 1981 while I was living there…but I digress) so I decided to check it out.

Constantine’s business card with a 404 (Atlanta, GA) area code. 
You can call the number & hear a voice-mail message from Constantine directly.

Constantine is John Constantine – Exorcist, Demonologist, & Master (Dabbler) of the Dark Arts (he's having his business cards reprinted). Preceding this first episode, Constantine’s band, Mucous Membrane, stumble upon a gory murder scene at the Casanova Club. A possessed young girl by the name of Astra Logue is identified as the suspected perp. Constantine attempts an exorcism, but the exorcism fails. The demon responsible is Nergal, a recurring nemesis of John's. Constantine heads to Ravenscar (Secure Facility for the Dangerously Deranged) for some good ole Electro-Shock Therapy treatment to help him forget.

The show has cool atmosphere & visuals (IMO some good CGI effects). The show offers many nods to comic fans (see the essential relics in Jasper Winter’s collection).

The pilot was a bit crowded, as it had a great deal of character & storyline explaining to do (quickly establishing a vast, comics-based mythology for a mixed audience is no easy task), but I think the coming episodes should open up a bit.

All in all kinda messy but that’s how I live my life…KINDA MESSY!

It’s not Rocket Appliances

Watching way too much Trailer Park Boys, as usual. Playing to "Ricky’s Theme"

Since I have a 'plutonium loveship' with Sunnyvale Trailer Park’s resident horticulturist & wordsmith...in the words of the Bard of Nova Scotia, “I don’t have enough people words to make it understand you the way it understands me.”

If You Drop the H it's a Whole 'nother Thing

Chris & Cosey – Allotropy, Staalplaat STCD 002, 1989.
decryption code in comments

Tracklist –

Allotropy was comissioned in June 1985 by Allotrophy Exhibition’s Jan Smith-Merritt & Stephen Hill, two American video artists. It was composed to accompany their performance video, reflecting not only the visuals presented but also the artist’s personalities, an integral part of the whole project. The final video piece is not available but by releasing the music this CD stands as evidence of its existence. Staalplaat originally released this on cassette in 1987.

Primitive Enema

Now that really is a Butt Trumpet.


Bianca (R.I.P.),

Geronimo & crew did a show for EAT POOP! in San Jose back in 1993, covering much of this material.

They gave me a cassette which I still have & cherish, but rarely play (endangered format). This is from the CD release, so you have no excuse but to hear the (Butt) Trumpet roar.

Even if you have never seen a porn movie in your lifetime (loser…no, just joking…loser…no, just joking again…lo---), this CD is like watching a porn video without the video. Aural sex. So turn the lights down low, light a few candles, put this on the stereo & let the magic Porn Groove take you wherever you want to go.

Whose Fantasy is this, Anyway? - Mr. Melvis (feat. Ms. Deameanor & R. Stevie Moore)

& from the insert notes:

“It’s a hot evening – the air hardly moves – you feel as if you are having trouble breathing … A thin sheen of sweat covers your body, but an even heavier weight presses down on you – a heavy urge that seems to come from the deepest recesses of your brain. A small, white hot light inside of you that grows brighter and brighter until it seems to take over your every thought. You slowly walk over the cabinet/drawer/closet/box and reach inside, grasping for that object which drives you. Removing an item, you slowly walk over to the ‘machine’ and insert the item into it. Flicking a small switch, images slowly flicker to life on the machine’s screen and you are transfixed – the object of your desires springs to life and you are drawn in to the depths of your fantasies. A pulsing, driving sort of music orchestrates the intense acrobatics on screen. You are drawn in not only by the images, but also by the drive of the music, it’s siren song luring you closer and closer to the completion of your journey. You have just entered ‘The Porn Zone’.”

“20 tunes of porn groovieness with a bonus track featuring a ‘Behind the Scenes’ look at the porn industry that will be sure to titillate even the most repressed listeners. It’s time to turn those lights down low again, & get it on.”
