They weren't saying "Boo!" They were saying "Youuuu.... SUCK!!!"

The mood I’m in is strange and orange and ghostly blue, black-lights and jack-o-lanterns; Until I sort this all out, go amuse yourselves, World O' Crap on Halloween and Mamacita's favorite abusive shriekers Gary and Lisa Ruby. Have fun.

See? Wasn't that fun?

Now go visit these people:
~d (tilde)
UPDATE: Also two angels who sent me mixes just cuz'... TYVM luvs!!! :-X
Draw Circles
Punchbuggy Blues
Duble, Duble, Toil & Mumble
Soiled Dove Inn
Evil Mommy
I Hate Cows
Tell It To Me Slowly

to see if they mixed your disk. Then try a bit a reading. Go for the mix but stay for the ambiance.

My own mix recipient knows I’m the one who slapped together the future coaster he got. He read the postmark apparently, clever lad. I’m half inclined to not even post my embarrassing list (so there) but figure what the fuck, I have almost a full bottle of Nyquil to kill.

Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells (Theme from The Exorcist)
Punchbuggy Blues has a chilling tale about his experiencing my disk for the first time. Graciously, he leaves out the part about the projectile vomiting.

Police – Every Breath You Take
Some people think stalkers are scary but I think they're great. Getting my tires slashed and having my cat ka-bobbed on a rake are almost as fun as the phonecalls at 4 AM, what with the screaching babble and threats of suicide. Let loose the monkeys.

Leonard Cohen – First We Take Manhattan
If the cool 80's beat doesn't scare you, Cohen's mortician voice will. Oh yeah, and the lyrics.

David Bowie – Ashes to Ashes
Since I figured someone would include "Scary Monsters" on their mix, I opted for the scarier cut from that album. Scarier still is the thought of Bowie and Lou Reed hanging out together in Berlin back then.

Garbage – Queer
More scary monsters.

Bauhaus – Stigmata Martyr
I don't even know what this song is about but it sounds scary.

Ministry – Stigmata
So does this. See, I told you I half-assed this thing.

Throbbing Gristle – Hamburger Lady
This really is scary. Almost everything by Throbbing Gristle is horrifying. Or sublimely silly.

Black Sabbath – Iron Man
Certainly silly.

Rob Zombie – Living Dead Girl
Sillier still.

The Clovers – Love Potion #9
(the Sousa march theme for Monty Python)

Howlin’ Wolf – Goin’ Down Slow
Knowing you're dying and... wait. Don't we all know this? And hey, it sounds like he had some fun.

Portishead – Glory Box
Also sounds scary.

Massive Attack – Angel

Ok, two more shots of Nyquil and then, I'm going to bed.

Wall of Voodoo – Wall of Fire

The end of the song sounds like the aftermath of an attack by aliens. We've all been replaced by pods of slobbering goo. Which explains the election 2004.

June Carter & Johnny Cash – Jackson

Jackson sounds like a scary place. And I bet there's lots of pods there, too.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Miles Away

Boop a doop doop doop, doop doop doop, aw Christ, where'd I put the peanut butter?

Talking Heads – Swamp
It takes an incoherent cough medicine buzz to understand what this song is really about. Good thing I won't remember tomorrow.

Tom Waits – Filipino Box Spring Hog

This is the Halloween party I attended.

Ooooo K, children, now that you're all a-skeered, it's time for bed. Don't mind the scraping sound from behind the dresser.

Future coaster? I don't think so- that was a great mix!

karen m said...

Great mix! You know, Leonard Cohen is one of two singers that really scare me (the other is Martyn Jacques of the Tiger Lillies). He's a brilliant songwriter, and I love his lyrics. As long as he's not the guy singing them.

Carrie said...

Are you sick? :(

I think your list was great! I haven't seen anyone's that suck.

vicki said...

For a moment there I feared you missed Tom Waits...good job, Jim! great mix! The ONLY thing missing is a little NOMO. You know?

jerry said...

I love that you put the police on there, that is the creepiest I am a stalker before stalking was frowned upon song I know.

I have bonus songs on my disc? I'll double check, I had more but I didn't think they would fit so i took them off or so I thought.

MizMell said...

I wondered just WHAT happened to you... It's been-- what-- a week?
Glad you had a good Halloween! Treasure those times... my kids are grown and I have no decorations, no trick or treaters-- I dress up my dog. Wanna see pics?

I am jonesing to hear tubular bells now!

I'll send you a copy of my halloween mix. I just got the box with my blank cd-r's.

That way you have it for next halloween! I've never played it at a party. Just put it together for this mixmania....just couldn't figure out what to cut, so added it ALL. *shrug*.

samirah said...

i can't find the maker of my cd. i looked through all of the links possted twice, i even accused people of being my match. but i still can't find the maker of my cd.

why is nobody owning up to cher and ghostbusters?!

jerry said...

I reburned my play list it has just 15 songs, I have no idea what is on that disc, it turns out I am not very good at this game.

punchbuggyblues said...

Yeah, so, that "Hamburger Lady" thing has gotten into my head. Really creepy. Can't wait for the next mix.

Kim said...

You silly, I think you confused "Glory Box" with "Glory Hole", also scary...

Hope you're feeling better!
