Nuclear Opalescence

Growing up, I thought my neighbor was a Cyclops. He was probably a good guy.

Yawfle Studies Crunk

The Gorey kind, not the hip-hop kind. In other words, drastic staring.

Selkirk Hurdle

Some more homemade American music. This is a result of trying to practice solo swaps for bluegrass. Attempting this myself, as is abundantly clear, demonstrates the difficulty and artistry of those who can do it apparently effortlessly. Maybe someday, but until then, this is posted in case someone wants to learn it with me..

NY State of Health

Decided to set up my midi stuff while on hold with NY State of Health this week. This pile of nonsense spewed forth. Yes, it's annoying, but only a couple of samples were cut and pasted. There really were quite a lot of discreet "Please remain on the line" samples. Rather than internalize, I amuse myself and pass my annoyance on to the listener.

Fait Tain in moving pictures

In case your ears don't work without your eyes, here's Mr. Melon's first attempt at stop motion animation. Turns out it takes alot of work to get it to synchronize, or maybe tools. Who has time for that? Anyway, Socrates makes the case for bottomless pits with Guy Smiley and a guest soloist. Never too old to play with dolls...

Local Hero

No one wants to hear someone complain about the state of the planet... and yet Mr. Melon did it anyway. He's very annoying, but we've got a pretty good deal, why not try to protect it.

The title and tag are stolen from this movie that everyone ought to place in front of their eyeballs.
