ONCE MORE WITH THE RANDOM'NESS
ok.. so where's me freakin' beer tally with all the shiny photos?
yeah.. fuck that, been busy in the studio..
(of all the excuses..)
anyhoo.. I wuz in a random record store today, flipping thru CD's.. noted a few random observations..
1. saw an EP by the local band - THE TRAFALGARS.. cool enuff band, seem to go for the wacky with the scarves kinda JET vibe, the hairy gonzo fuzzy garage pop-rock thing.. etc.. etc.. (y'know.. ALL the kiddies are doing it now).. and, seriously is it just me, or does the drummer look like Ralph Wiggum from the SIMPSONS? - anywaze.. I noticed on the back of their CD, they had a tiny tiny advert for Jagermeister..
now.. I'm seriously wondering, do JAGERMEISTER have a record label now? do they release albums? or, is this just a really DODGY grab for cash sell-out form of advertising space.. I mean.. WOT THE FUCK is UP WITH THAT?? although.. I think it begins to explain why I saw "Jagermeister" everywhere at that JIVE gig they did.. hmmm.. something VERY fishy about all this.. sure, it's one thing to liscence out ya music to promote products in advertising.. (like every 2nd advert seems to do with JET's "are you gonna be my girl".. *cough* sellouts!) and hey, even the freaking PRODIGY are doing it now with BMW ads.. and, in some demented way.. it's kinda acceptable.. as long as your selling alcohol or fast cars.. (just dont go near PEPSI.. we'll disown you).. but.. now they're doing CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP?? advertising space on freaking ALBUMS!!?? say it isn't so!!
2. saw the new MOBY CD floatin' around.. apparently B-sides to his album PLAY (kinda late now isn't it?).. and amongst the tracklisting.. I noticed one song - "the sun never stops setting".. which in all funny and tangentially random ways got me thinking.. well.. first off.. he's right.. the sun never DOES stop setting.. not if you're following the thing, like in a plane or somethin'.. but, then it got me thinkin, in some kinda freaked out twisted logic.. first off, how FAST would a plane need to travel west.. to perpetually follow the SUN at sunset, without it dropping over the horizon..? (ie: how FAST is the earth's rotation?.. hmm.. considering the radius of the earth, and the 24 hours it takes to cross it.. shouldn't be too hard to figure out.. if I could be arsed..) now, the other trippy thing.. if you were to do it.. theoretically.. you'd spend an ENTIRE day at sunset.. in essense in FROZEN time.. which, to begin with is a damn trippy concept.. and 2nd.. the minute you cross the international date line.. you'll instantaneously jump 24 hours into the future.. which hey, ain't too bad if you never want to be a "morning person".. well, with a fast enough plane.. now you DONT need to be.. just get rid of mornings altogether..
hmmm.. yes, my brain DOES have too much idle time to cook this shit up..
wot the hell am I calling meself "busy" for..
oh well.. back to remasterin' SUBWOOFER songs.. ;)
