description:
When producing vinyl LP's, it is possible to cut parallel grooves with a special sort of lathe. This way, depending on where the needle is dropped, two entirely different sides can be placed less than a millimeter next to each other.

In the little pretend world that I frequent, I have one of these lathes. Depending on where the needle is dropped, you will hear either "Heavy Heavy" (the odd-numbered tracks) or "Mush Mouth" (the even-numbered tracks) from start to finish.

This mixtape is dedicated to all the moms and pops in the room tonight.

Track 1 from Vincebus Eruptum
Length: 00:03:47
Year: 1967
Track Description:
Blue Cheer is this psychedelic, proto-punk, proto-metal, I-have-no-idea band from the 1960's that should be given more recognition. This album in particular, before they got swept up in the hippie thing and wrote songs on acoustic guitar about holding hands and looking into the eye of the sun. Both sides of Blue Cheer are worth listening to, but this is much more urgent and satisfying.

1. A favorite album opener.

Track 12 from Brazil (Soundtrack From the Motion Picture)
Length: 00:03:26
Year: 2006
Track Description:
Last Saturday my family and I went to see Ratatouille, cause the only other family-oriented film out right now is Evan Almighty (yikes!), unless you count Fantastic Four (double yikes!), and the Brazil motif was used for two or three of the previews (all of them were computer animated, which made me die a little on the inside). I saw this movie at "Art & Film," a weekly celebration of classic films at the Randall Theatre in San Francisco, and I did not know what to expect. Totally changed my perspective on art and film. Insane.

2. A song from a movie.

Track Description:
Both RZA and GZA think this new album sounds too much like the Mars Volta. Method Man is neutral on the matter, but will go along with the other two if they decide to whoop Hella's collective ass.

3. A song that the Wu-Tang Clan would make fun of.

Track Description:
Dear Andrew Bird, I hate you, Andrew Bird, you sell out, you hotel frequenter, why don't you go pack up your guitar and your violin and whatever you use to whistle that damn good and why don't you go ahead and die.

I don't mean that.

I'm sure your whistling is just a natural talent.

Track 3 from Pink (Import)
Length: 00:02:38
Year: 2005
Track Description:
Last Friday I gave a mixtape to a girl, well, this song was on it, and I've said it before, girls aren't supposed to like the mind-melting maelstrom that is BORIS, but apparently she was another exception. We sat down and I tried to figure out what the singer was saying. "Still made of muscle" is my best guess, but "Sill gravy saxophone" is a tempting runner-up. It's like the lyrics are in another language or something.

5. A song where the title of the song is not in the lyrics of said song.

Track 6 from everybody knows this is nowhere
Length: 00:05:30
Year: 1969
Track Description:
Someone wasn't too attentive to the fact that this is Neil Young & Crazy Horse, not just Neil Young, and Crazy Horse is a flannel-clad sweat-soaked musical experience. Sounds a bit like 'grunge,' no? Also, the fact that this isn't properly capitalized is bugging me. And it's "Requiem." Ass.

6. A song by a 'grunge' band.

SHOW MORE
Track 3 from Sell Your Dope
Length: 00:05:53
Year: 2000
Track Description:
This is the saddest song ever. Oh, wait, I'm thinking of that other one song that Afroman wrote. The one about cause and effect and cannabis consumption. Yeah, that one. When this came out seven years ago, I spent many nights in bed wondering what a "Colt 45 and two zig-zags" meant. Obviously, the times they are a-changing. I hope I never actually heard this whole song during adolescence, that might have been too much for my brain. Moment of lyrical brilliance: "I thought to myself, sheba, sheba, she got my ass lookin' like a zebra!"

7. A song by a two-hit wonder (or a one-hit, this one is hard...).

Track 7 from In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Length: 00:01:57
Year: 1998
Track Description:
My parents disapprove of pretty much everything I listen to. "Communism? We abandon you on a corner, how about that, you communist." I made a tape of this album to listen to in the car, and then my dad expressed his dissatisfaction with it, and I had to resort to the "I must have played the record at 45 R.P.M. instead of 33 1/3 R.P.M., Dad, that's why it sounds so strange" excuse. Yeah, I've used that one more than once.

8. A song that your parents would probably disapprove of.

SHOW MORE
Track 2 from Two Songs By The Microphones
Length: 00:02:12
Year: 2007
Track Description:
This 7" was actually disappointing, considering it cost seven dollars plus shipping and handling and came nowhere close to the controlled chaos of "The Glow, Pt. 2," but then I learned to stop griping and take it for what it is. It's the Microphones' version of punk (?), according to the P.W. Elverum & Sun website, and "Get Off the Internet" is the better of the two songs on this single. The other offering, "Don't Smoke," reminded me why I should never turn the Sustain knob on my Big Muff Pi all the way clockwise. But boy, has Phil gotten preachy. Lyrics no longer focus on wind and shirts and the universe, no no no, they're all in the imperative, and they're telling you what to do. It's a good thing I agree with what he's saying. Turn your computer off right now. Do it.

9. A song that references the internet / computers.

Track 5 from No Strings Attached

Year: 2000
Track Description:
It is both humbling and gratifying to know that everything I will ever write, achieve, accomplish, etc. will not come close to the level of perfection this song is on. Another fine record by Justin Timberlake and company, play this for your friends, spread the word, I swear these guys are going to be huge. That Lance Bass is such a heartthrob, omg.

It's all relative, man. I'm sure Galapagos Land Turtles think this song is like grindcore short. Next Halloween I'm going to play this track on repeat, sort of like a budget "Spooky Sounds! Ooooh!" tape but forserious. For all them kids wanting razors in their candy.

Track 4 from Cabana EP+
Length: 00:04:00
Year: 2004
Track Description:
I believe this was on the first mixtape I ever submitted to the website, over a year ago (hey MTC, get going on those badges), but it works so perfectly. Tree Wave are two people, Paul Slocum (you know him because he did the "Hello hello hello" anti-jingle for Motorola) and Lauren Grey (you know her because, well, you don't know her, at least not yet), and they make shoegaze-y 8-bit pop with a Commodore 64 Home Computer, an Atari 2600 Game Console, a Compaq Portable II Personal Computer, and an Epson LQ500 Dot Matrix Printer. This is an instrumental, so no singing from Lauren Grey, but we do get some ambience that's perfect for opening doors or rearranging things or whatever you did way back in the first Zelda.

12. A song for listening to while playing the original Zelda.

Year: 1986
Track Description:
If there were ever a movie about my life, it'd have to be marketed towards the younguns. I'm thinking a bare-bones VHS cover with some epic picture of me slaying a two-headed dragon gracing the front. Like Citizen Kane 2. And this would be the shopping scene.

When I'm filled with angst I slap on the headphones, hella aggro like, see? And then I put on this noise, that's really angry, with clever titles, see? So I haven't lost my wit, see, but I haven't lost my edge either, see? Now watch as I punch you in the face. It's called angst.

Track Description:
I heard Mike Watt played bass for the new Kelly Clarkson album. Is this true? At least he's getting work, unlike you, sitting at the computer, getting dumber and dumber. D. Boon's kind of like a father figure, or at least the crazy uncle who introduces you to great music. And I feel I've done my job here, the bass is RIPPING.

Year: 1968
Track Description:
Leave your body behind. The 13th Floor Elevators's electric jug player is kind of like a running joke that is brought up at every opportunity. In every song, in fact. Like Dora the Explorer and her Swiper-no-swiping, or like Scooby Doo and his Mr. Jenkins-who-would-have-gotten-away-with-it-had-it -not-been-for-those-meddling-kids. I can't believe I just wrote that sentence, I'm going to sleep, goodnight everybody.
