This song is upbeat, very upbeat, but this mix is going to be devestating so I thought it'd be nice to atleast start out pleasant. Os Mutantes is a Brazilian psychadelic band from the...60s? and I think they broke up because of a combination of excessive LSD use and depression...so there you go.

The Halloween 2007 Badge
Happy Halloween 2007! In celebration of this event, here is a recipe to make your very own candy corn:

Combine 1 cup of razor blades, 2 cups of clown tears and 3/4 tablespoon spider eggs in a pan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and add 2 cups hemlock and 3 ounces of fish oil. Stir until cool enough to handle. Shape and distribute.

Trick or treat!

tom waits is lonely, lol, I agree, that is his element. just as nick cave is a bad ass, lou reed could be the outsider, bruce springsteen the working class man, david bowie- the urban guy, Leonard Cohen- cant think of a stereotype for him. anyway.
