See? Wasn't that fun?
Now go visit these people:
UPDATE: Also two angels who sent me mixes just cuz'... TYVM luvs!!! :-X
Duble, Duble, Toil & Mumble
Soiled Dove Inn
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
Rob Zombie – Living Dead Girl
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 We've all been replaced by pods of slobbering goo.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.
