Carter beats Reagan in 80. Carter is President for the 84 Olympics and is the symbol of America with Bruce Springsteen. In 84 Mondale loses to Bob Dole. Bob Dole is President when the Challenger explodes. Paul Simon beats Bob Dole in 88. Paul Simon signs monumental peace treaty with the Russia that restores nation […]
This is one of those great moments where if you play enough obscure stuff on Youtube, Youtube will introduce you to an absolute treasure trove of more obscure stuff. Yesterday I didn’t know these things didn’t exist, and now I know they do. *Akira Ishikawa – “Africa Rock” (album, 1971, .75)*Psychedelic Cartoons (playlist, .75) I […]
I fell asleep super early last night, so there wasn’t a mix. But tonight? Tonight there’s a mix! *The Blue Yusef Lateef – “Like It Is” (song, .75 speed)* 60 Minutes of Smurfs – (cartoon, .5 speed) I started off in a blue mood which is how we ended up where we did, but then […]

Tonight’s Ultra Youtube Mix: * Born to the Saddle (western movie, 1953, .5 speed) * Relaxing Armenian music w/ duduk * Sam Moore – Moooohieee The duduk and the Sam Moore musical saw playing are a super haunting combo. The Western adds surreal character. What about you?
Tonight’s mix is: A Canção de Lisboa (Portuguese movie, 1933, .75 speed) NBC Nightly News (August 16, 1977, .5 speed) Post-Rock for Sleep: Night One I think you can learn a lot about a movie even when you don’t speak the language and even when you don’t look at the visuals if you can just […]
Tonight’s mix is: Deep Cello Music The Cry of the Armenian Duduk Isle of Forgotten Sins (*note* this gets played at 1/2 speed) I’ve decided after learning about the duduk that pretty much all videos can be enhanced by having a duduk. It’s this haunting, wailing instrument that you’ll recognize from movie soundtracks. It […]
