Endless Randomness…


“Mr. Pickles”

eastwoodI know, Clint’s a dickhead, but I dig a few of his movies…

47 years old and feeling like I’m twice that. Mind and body are nothing compared to what they once were, if they ever once were anything. Just visited my 87 year old Grandpa and I almost feel like he’s healthier than I am. Live fast die young, right? Shit, I’m lucky to be alive, whatever joy I have in my life, these days, is gravy. Whatever pain I have is well earned. Music! The one constant, the saving grace. This place, my outlet. The meal of life, shit out here. It’s a shame my main course is Facebook, but I’ll take what I can get.

A buddy of mine recently turned me onto this 1973, Icelandic classic…
Icecross – Jesus Freaks

Haven’t posted an animated horror short in quite some time…

Been there, done that…
Dope Head Blues
Just give me one more sniff of, another sniff of that dope
Just give me one more sniff of, another sniff of that dope
I’ll catch a cow like a cowboy, and throw a bull without a rope
Doggone, I’ve got more money than Henry Ford or John D. ever had
Doggone, got more money than Henry Ford or John D. ever had
I bit a dog last Monday and forty doggone dogs went mad
Feel like a fighting rooster, feel better than I ever felt
Feel like a fighting rooster, feel better than I ever felt
Got double pneumonia and still I think I got the best health
Say, Sam
Go get my airplane and drive it up to my door
Aw, Sam, go get my airplane and drive it to my door
I think I’ll fly to London, these monkey men makes mama sore
The president sent for me, the Prince of Wales is on my trail
The president sent for me, the Prince of Wales is on my trail
They worry me so much, I’ll take another sniff and put them both in jail

Anybody watch “Orange is the New Black”? I’ve never seen it, but heard it’s good (who has time to watch TV?). Anyway, one of the actresses, was quite the punk rocker in her day, she fronted for this New York band The Shirts. Dig this tune from 1979…

I don’t like politics or the media, but sarcasm and humor are good…

Sacrilege – Demo


Antiseen doing Twisted Brain just seems fucking perfect right now. Saw these guys in Humboldt, 90-ish, but for whatever reason didn’t realize how cool of a band they were/are. The heshers in the audience kept hollering, “play faster”! Fuck that…

Sacrilege demos1Sacrilege demos2Been wanting to post this one for a while now, so long that I’m not even sure I’m in the mood for it. My first exposure to the band was the Anglican Scrape Attic flexi and the tune “Blood Run” (may be the same version on here, I don’t know those things). The mid-80s were pretty rad for music…

Industrial-esque

ChiefMr. Will Sampson! Jack is okay, good even, but man Will was a one of a kind man.

Lots to say, but just not feeling the writing thing.  It’s not like I’m some sort of skilled writer, crafting paragraphs like a potter crafts pottery, here at the Relics i’s all about making mud pies.  Facebook is like the evilest of drugs, keeping you pleasantly numb while bombarding you with other peoples bullshit, mixed with just enough networking with old/new friends to keep you coming back.  The days of the blog are done.  I’m like that Japanese guy on an island still fighting a war 20 years after it ended…

ancient_skull_2I’m keen these days to quote others when I don’t have a coherent comment of my own, so here’s my buddy Shawn’s 2 cents on the 4 year old and the gorilla thing…
“Thing with zoo’s you got to assume 33.333% of the people are morons. No matter how you try to teach and enforce etiquette, young and old throw stuff in, climb in to get something they dropped, sit their kid on the edge of the enclosure so they can get him/her in the same frame as the rhino, bang on the walls, break stuff, trample vegetation. They need their own exhibit. There is always that fine line where you try to make the animal visible, but also both keep it in (and feeling happy and secure) and keep people and their detritus out, which is nearly always detrimental to the animal. In this sense, the zoo bears some responsibility in that they had an avenue for something to enter the exibit (in this case the kid). Of course, since I don’t know the situation, the zoo may have had a sufficient enclosure, and people can always find a way around the safety structures to get a better selfie. That said, if it wasn’t a fluke accident, the guardians of the kid violated the most basic principles of common sense, hold the vast majority of the responsibility, and should be prosecuted for child endangerment.”
Two things I would add to that…Great Apes should not be kept in captivity…and this is yet another media “story” aimed ultimately at mind control…

This here thing below is my latest “Industrial” comp, sort of a greatest hits of of 6 other like minded comps I’ve done for myself. After spending a year listening to/exploring Industrial music, this is what I have come up with…some old, some medium old and some new. In my opinion, biased as it inevitably should be, every song on here is worth a listen, if you’re so inclined. Obviously, if you were making your own such thing, if that is your thing, you could have a completely different mix altogether…
