Go here and get this. Yes, it's a mashup. Yes, it's the Carpenters and Oasis. It's waaaay better than it deserves to be and it's pure unadulterated crack.

(I'm noting the difference in sound quality these two groups worked towards in recording. When The Carpenters were recording, sounding good meant staying in the mid-range and creating that whole wall of sound thing. That's what sounding good in the car was, when most people only had AM radio and one 4" speaker in the dashboard. Adding something recorded within the past ten years? HUGE difference - people have personal systems that can catch every possible frequency with exact precision, *excellent* headphones standard. You work to capture the full spectrum possible, peaks and valleys. Get nasal - it still works. So this is a bit jarring, but wow.)

You know the Carpenters grew up in the same neighborhood that spawned Nadya Suleman, right? Richard Carpenter still is one of the most dead-nuts-on piano players on the block (but why isn't he working more), and losing Karen Carpenter to stress and starvation is still one of the worst things I remember from the eighties. Barry Manilow should have kidnapped her and taken her with him to tour in Japan when her folks wouldn't let him date her. (Yup. In her twenties wouldn't let her date on her own. He was from a bad part of Brooklyn, you know.)

But I'm not bitter. ;)

And I gotta go check out this other group - I kinda like what I'm hearing.

...

You know, having this kind of memory approaching fifty is NOT what I was expecting when I tried to imagine it at fourteen. Just saying.

The mix I listed in this entry not workee so much.

So here. Pick up this one instead.

From the original post:

You've heard of TJ and Amal, right? My good friend [livejournal.com profile] gallo_de_pelea's pet project - they keep her up nights, hardly shutting up long enough for her to get their stories down to paper...and I hope someday, they'll be on store shelves and paying for her retirement someday.

They're really good boys.

One of the things they tend to do is create soundtracks in their wake, however.

And yeah, I got sucked in. At least three of the tunes on the list would not let me stop working on the mix...so here it is, finally done.

*facesmacks* At least four of the songs are almost as old as I am - and three of them are off one album. A really GOOD album, but still -

This has to be the most laid back mix I've ever heard relative to the project. It's clearly for driving through the night when there isn't much to talk about and plenty to ponder. I remember lots of larks out at night (pick a direction, start driving - have pie, then go home. Arrive home about 3:00 AM the next morning) and this assortment reminds me of the mixtapes we used to make.

*clears throat* This was also when CB radios still worked, I might add.

So here goes - TJ & Amal - Love is Stupid, Funny...and Incredible.

Hope you like it - and I assure you, you'll enjoy the comic even more.

*Does not contain Michael Jackson either.

That whole SITE is made of awesome. Go check their archives!

Reasonable gold?

Try a Stevie Wonder/Destiny's Child that has a 'could be addictive' label on it, and oh mama - Bootystition.

And ZZ Top/Pink is so smooth, it's hard to believe it's a mash.

Nods to [livejournal.com profile] yendi - just so nice on a Monday morning. So. Nice.

Ah, mixes. Yay. It all started with needing to have the Christmas Mix done, then [livejournal.com profile] motorbike dared me to do one...and then she posted one that was nothing but covers of 'Everybody Hurts' - so I got wicked and retaliated.

I apologize up front for the lack of format consistency. You're gonna get what I got...mp3, cda, etc. Apologies. You need a password, you're 'welcome' -

The Christmas Mix - guaranteed to have stuff in it you won't find anywhere else for good reason....

The 'Kant Help You' Dare Mix - basis for this was a random Wiki pull - and after distilling it down to a few paragraphs, this is basically what Lawrence Stepelevich was all (mostly) about:

The conclusions were both simple and shocking: the Christ of the gospels was a myth generated out of the messianic longings of the Jews. Jesus actually existed, and his personality drew upon him the mantle of the Christ, but beyond that, little more can be said of Jesus. Finally, mankind is the actual Christ insofar as it is its own savior. It is this last optimistic, humanistic, and irreverent thesis which reveals Strauss as a Young Hegelian. The incarnation of the Logos, the Geist, was not restricted to the particularity of Jesus but was received into the total human race. The messianic ideal of a redemption of mankind

does not squander its fullness on one individual in order to be stingy lo everybody else. Its desire, rather, is to distribute its wealth among the multiplicity of individuals ... Is not the idea of the unity of divine and human natures a real one in a more lofty sense when I regard the entire human race as its realization than if I select one man as its realization? Is not the incarnation of God from eternity more true than an incarnation limited to one point in time?"[22]

In commenting upon this passage, William Brazill summarizes -- "as there could be no man without God, so there could be no God without man. Humanity was the Christ."[23]


Go fer it. Yes, that's 'Existential Blues' you hear, along with some vintage Toy Matinee.

And for the last? I retaliate against all those covers of 'Everybody Hurts' with more versions...of 'I've Got You Under My Skin' - which is Creepy As Hell

You want them all? Okay.

Ghad, there's a buttload of things to do.

Balancing act here, guys.

At the new gig, there's a guitar player making a living as a kick-ass programmer who puts all kinds of awesome on the network.

And he has an incredible memory and equally good taste in awesome.

We were talking about the Smothers Brothers this morning. We ended up there after having to listen to hold music torture - and I was naming and dating the songs. (SAD.)

And he told me what he remembered.

And then pointed me at the song. On the network drive.

Awesome awesome awesome. Here, have some of it. 60's vintage, and yes - it's over ten minutes long.

MORE COWBELL THAN YOU CAN HANDLE.

Chambers Brothers - Time Has Come Today

Yes, I am in the right place.

Now, if I can just stop getting kicked in the teeth everytime old gig comes back to haunt me....
