    Episode One: Around the World

    Ideas I have so far for future episodes that I could use specific video suggestions for:
    WitchHouse/SeaPunk

    Bands that don't fit any genre

  • Mastodon's™ latest delivery!

    25 jan 2012, 20:11 av Mouth_Breather

    Mastodon™, one of the Internet's best catalogued t-shirt making companies, have gone back to their long forgotten and distant roots and posthumously released an album back in September titled "The Hunter" - presumably named after the actions they partake in hunting their fan's parent's credit accounts to market their shoes, wallets, beer koozies, home abortion kits and other tat with their names.

    As I listen to “The Hunter”, I sit in awe and wonder at the thoughtful lyrics and the amount of work and sheer temerity – don’t take it from me, just read from “Curl of the Burl”; I killed a man, cause he killed my goat - I put my hands around his throat.

    Monumental. Stuff.

    And with illuminative song titles such as “Blasteroid” and “Stargasm” – it’s easy to forget of early albums such as “Remission” and “Leviathan” – mere stepping stones, to the now enthralling and orgasm inducing “The Hunter”. No, gone are the BORING and STUPID riffs that once were hailed as “original” and “cutting edge” by pseudo-intellectuals, gone are the “clever thematics” and “unique” approaches to songs – once described by people who actually called themselves “fans”. Instead we are pleased to see more re-hashed, recycled riffs from their previous album “AssCrack in my Eye” or colloquially known as “Crack tha Skyii”.

    The band have also been exploring new and interesting ways to develop their sound, namely by inhaling vast quantities of petroleum and deciding on letting other band members sing such as Brent Hinds – which has done something no other band can seem to do – make their songs sound as if they are being sung by a badger being set alight and made to bark the alphabet. Truly innovative approaches in this album guys.

    All of these delicately engineered and refined elements combine to form exactly what the modern Mastodon™ fan needs; a wall of textured white noise where there is minimal semblance of any kind of variation between songs, with the most basic of lyrics, and with a revolving door of guest vocalists. I feel that the band can go a few steps further and include more products in their line-up through their music itself. For example, songs can feature mini-advertisements where they can sing about some sort of new design of Vans™ shoes which traverse Rasputin’s stargasmic wormhole or something. I don’t know, all I know is that there should be considerations made to their repertoire of products for sale.

    Shoes, wallets, masonic aprons, buttplugs, bar mitzvah certificates are not enough, the boys have to sit down and have a serious think on how they can combine their new approach to music with the sellability of their merchandise.
    All in all The Hunter scores very high in my top 10, a resounding success no doubt, but will the novelty wear out? Or are Mastodon™ wearing their (officially endorsed) thinking caps and revelling in the success?

    Only time will tell.
    (Mastodon official watches on sale soon).

    Confessions of a Lunatic Pope is the memoir series of Timothy Bowen, a Pope of Discordianism and High Priest and Ordained Minister of The Church of the Subgenius, author of two poetry collections, and the Discordian Holy Books Voices of Chaos and Jonesboria Discordia, and former front-man for numerous and infamous local bands in the Jonesboro, Arkansas area.

  • Robots with Fucking Lasers, Man

    23 dec 2011, 04:19 av olboyfloats

    Timothy Bowen, also known as me, is working on a new album.
    Robots with Fucking Lasers, Man

    Robots with Fucking Lasers, Man, is a concept album about the interference in communication between The Robots and a humanity that is parallel to our own, but slightly more advanced technologically.
    Radio interference is static. Digital interference is pixelated. This interference is something different and more advanced. This is the interference that occurs when The Robots send transmissions to the chips implanted in humans' brains.

    The album is not quite done yet.
    I still need a few things:


    Drawings of robots to use in liner notes
    Remixes of the songs I have so far
    Instrumental tracks to chop/screw and add voices to
    Moral support


    If you can provide any of these things let me know, otherwise, just more listeners would be awesome!

    Easier download in many different file formats at
    my bandcamp page

  • Spotify Grab Bag

    Here are three cool toys you can play with using Spotify:

    -Spotibot
    Spotibot is incredibly simple: just plug in an artist (or number of artists), tell it how many tracks you want it to return, and it'll spit out a playlist of similar songs for you to try out. From there, you can just drag and drop the playlist right into Spotify and start listening. If you don't want to limit your recommendations to a certain band, you can even link Spotibot with your Last.fm profile and just have it create generic playlists based on all the music you listen to. The playlists can be up to 50 songs in length, and you can even tell it to favor more popular tracks if you so wish, as well as remove tracks or add more similar tracks with the plus and "x" buttons.

    -Trushuffle
    pulls data from Last.fm to create a personalized recommendation playlist in Spotify. Its main advantage over Spotibot's similar Last.fm functionality is that you don't have to import anything more than once, you just need to scrobble tracks to Last.fm. TruShuffle will share a playlist with you in Spotify and add tracks to it based on your listening habits, which is awesome. You can adjust settings on their web page, like how similar you want the music to be, and you can also grab their desktop client for more settings and statistics. You have to create an account for TruShuffle, but it takes about two seconds and doesn't even require an email address. Just plug in the username and password you want, connect it to your Last.fm username, and it'll give you a playlist to subscribe to in Spotify. You don't have to ever visit the site again, if you don't want to—once you've set it up, your TruShuffle playlist will keep updating as you listen to more music on Spotify (though the settings on their site are pretty handy).

    -Spotiseek
    is very similar to Spotibot, with some slight interface changes. You can type in any artist to generate a playlist of similar music, then drag that playlist into Spotify. However, on the playlist page, it has two handy "more artists" and "new tracks" buttons, which will re-generate the playlist for you in one click—either with new similar artists, or new tracks from the same artists. You can also replace single tracks by clicking on the "Replace" button next to a song. Like Spotibot, you can prioritize popular tracks as well. The two services are quite similar, with very minor differences. For example, Spotibot lets you create playlists based on multiple artists, but Spotiseek gives you a bit more control over generating new playlists. Personal preference will determine which of these you use, so give them both a look.

    -Blockify
    Is far and away the best Spotify ad blocker for Windows. It sits in your system tray and mutes Spotify (or your computer, your choice) whenever it detects an audio ad. It'll unmute Spotify when the ad finishes playing. Better yet, though, Blockify can do more than just mute ads: It also adds customizable hotkeys to Spotify, so you can skip tracks, play, pause, shuffle, and change the volume with keyboard shortcuts.

  • Overhere -- Listen Along with your Last.fm bros.

    21 jul 2011, 03:10 av NarrowVision


    Overhere is a simple web app that lets you listen to another Last.fm user's music stream, nearly in real time, using Spotify.
    I haven't tried it yet, but this seems like a cool thing to play around with. So be warned, I might be listening to your music right along your side.

    Be a creep and listen along

    update: I forgot to mention, it only works if you have a Spotify account.
