Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Listener comments!


happy july 5th i had a sushicheeseburger

hah my friend smoked pall mall because kurt Vonnegut wrote about smoking them

there's some kind of connection there with kurt cobain and kurt vonnegut but i can't get the tip of my tongue right on it

today I tried a seattle dog and it wasn't bad

Hey Darren, folks!. Another great band from Australia, they've got it goin' on these days!

i broke the world record of eating the most sushicheeseburgers in 1 hour today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am

Fastbacks from 1993, what a tender year!

I wonder how they melt the cheese without accidentally cooking the sushi..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am

diciassette: My great-grandmother once microwaved some leftover sushi she found in the fridge, she had no idea what it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33am

The story my father tells: "Raw fish eh, I'll just smother it with this green stuff so I don't have to taste it."

once my friend dumpster dived 10 pounds of Sushi from whole foods and we stirred fried it for a freaky fried sushi party

Yippie, that sounds like Happy Family! (my favorite Chinese restaurant dish where they stir fry everything in the ocean)

Seat of no pants radio.. \m/ My copy of Madam Butterfly is gray.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17am

Is this the weirdest/dumbest major label release of 1984?
Avatar 4:17am

I feel as though McLaren was behind a lot of great stuff, but I have a hard time allowing him credit because I dislike him. This is like a Terrible Idea Great Execution. Which means it should be bad but sounds really good.

It was different.

The Puccini is hard to swallow in the context, but the context is nice.

1984. What a year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am

Hmm ...And His Orchestra is from 1987 (but sounds like 1993). I apologize for that and any other dumb things I've said.

Sleep tight!

I thought that was Nina Simone. Holy crap! I had no idea what a lousy singer she was. This song by GIlbert O' Sullivan always irritated me (and I'm old enough to remember when this was a hit on the radio: 1972). But, this was the first time I actually paid attention to the lyrics. So, the lyrics are deep, but the song structure (with that irritating hook), is horrible and tawdry. It's a really bad fit, Mr. O'Sullivan. I just found out that according to Wikipedia, Nina Simone changed the lyrics somewhat... One final beef: Who the hell names their kid "Gilbert O'Sullivan"?
