Jingle Bells Jamboree!!!

Do you love "Jingle Bells"? 
If so, you're in for quite a treat! 

Here are 19 versions of the Christmas classic, which seems insane, but the variations and styles really go all across the map!

I made this mixtape mercifully short (there were honestly about 200 more versions I could have included!) and only presented the most "different" and "interesting" ones so it never gets old! haha

Jingle all the way!!!

Happy Holidays, one & all!

You may download this insanely seasonal mixtape RIGHT HERE

Jingle all the way!!!

A Very Vinyl Christmas

This mixtape will be perfect for:

A. Wrapping gifts
B. Sipping a tall glass of eggnog
C. Decorating a tree
D. Bundling up
E. Fending off visions of sugar plums

Happy Holidays! 

Behold ... an extremely seasonal mixtape culled from my wildly random (and often rather scratchy) Christmastime vinyl collection! 

As always, 

*** ENJOY ***

Autumn Marches On

This mixtape might be perfect for:

A. Tromping through dead leaves
B. Whistling past cemeteries
C. Choosing just the right sweater or jacket
D. Seeing your own breath
E. Sipping a mug of something steamy

Ah, Autumn ... a time of falling leaves, cold gusts of wind and ever-darkening days.

There is a sense of mystery in the air, like ghosts lurking around every corner.

Here for you is a rather (appropriately) dark soundtrack of sorts which celebrates my very favorite season.

As always,

*** ENJOY ***

You can download the mix RIGHT HERE.

*** break ***

After this All Hallows (which I consider a "spiritual new year" of sorts), I'm gonna take a BREAK  from "Psychic Tuesday" blog posts. 

After basically 5 years of posting on each and every Tuesday, I need a bit of time off (especially to work on my new paintings website, amongst other things) ... 

I may take all of November (my birthday month!) off, or perhaps just switch to posting every OTHER Tuesday! 

Who knows!?!

In the meantime, thanks Thanks THANKS for viewing!!!

I'll see you soon (on a Tuesday for sure!)


Speaking of Spooks ...

Halloween is only 2 days away!

And so, with that fact in mind, I present to you a (more or less) spoken word mixtape in celebration of All Hallow's Eve, filled with many a crackly vinyl ghost story and sinister tale.

 Lights out!

 *** ENJOY!!! ***

 Merry Samhain, one and all!!!


You can download the spooky sounds RIGHT HERE.


Psychic Tuesday EP 10 is here! Let the weirdness continue! Haha!


Speaking of spooks (!), if you want to experience even more ghost tales and scary stories, may I direct you to Chilling Tales For Dark Nights

Here is a good example of some of the stuff you'll find there:




Radio Belbury has released their 11th program!


Sadly, on this past Sunday, the great Lou Reed passed away.

He was truly an inspirational man.

Ryan sent brilliant 1972 interview with the man.
Cheers, R!

 Also, here's a bizarre Lou Reed tribute video from Sonic Youth in 1987 ...

And here's Twin Shadow performing my very favorite Lou tune, "Perfect Day"

Instead of music videos this week, I want to share with you some of my all-time favorite Halloween movies and videos ...


You can watch the 1944 Halloween comedy, "Arsenic and Old Lace"

You can watch the incredible 1931 production of "Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi

 Here are 13 swingin vintage Halloween songs from the Jazz era :


The best horror movie ever!

"Night Of the Living Dead"!!!


 It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Both Elise and Laura sent me this last little tidbit! (Thanky!)
 If you're a Wes Anderson fan, this'll tickle yer funny bone!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Focal Point : David Lynch

For the month of October, we appropriately focus on the dark, twisted and yet strangely beautiful music of David Lynch.

I couldn't find just the right words to describe Lynch's amazing songs, so I borrowed the below quotes from a recent Rolling Stone. You can read the entire article RIGHT HERE.

"David Lynch doesn't want you to call him a musician. He's a renowned filmmaker and self-taught improviser on electric guitar, a slasher and basher of strange riffs he can never quite repeat again.

 'I love to think of the electric guitar like a 1950s chopped and lowered flat-black muscle car, super-fast with a low roar on the exhaust. It's the sound of power. That's what I'm dreaming of. The electric guitar can be like an engine, but it can purr in a beautiful way. All ideas come from someplace – from the source, they say. What separates people is their loves, because the ideas are out there, and you're attracted to those things you love. You catch those and you're thrilled.' "

So ... with no further ado, I bring you the sweetly sinister sounds of David Lynch ...

As always,
*** ENJOY***


You can download the sinister sounds RIGHT HERE.

And now ... a few choice David Lynch videos:


1st, Ryan sent me 2 excellent recent Banksy bits ... Thanks, R!

A. Sirens of the lambs


"Street artist Banksy continues his art installations in New York City this month with his latest work taking a jab at the famous icon Ronald McDonald. On October 16, a fiberglass replica of Ronald McDonald showed up outside a McDonalds in the South Bronx. The sculpture diverts from the typical ones you may see at McDonald’s in that it has oversized, red clown shoes and the face of the Greek God Hermes. It also has one leg up, waiting for his shoe to be shine by an actual person."


This is horrible. Help STOP China from making and selling keychains with living animals inside of them HERE.



Hey look! Wild Nothing made an awesome new mixtape!

To begin with, Jim James now has a TV for a head!

apparently, Besnard Lakes have decided that night swimming deserves a quiet night

Crystal Stilts bring us some very colorful landscape bliss (see them live here in town at Bottletree Oct. 27th!)

Speaking of crystal, Crystal Antlers present spinning pizzas and singing skulls!

Dig these awesomely weird Tuxedomoon videos … before post-punk was even called post-punk!

The above videos remind me of the below videos! I bring you ... Alive From Off Center!

Ah ... Hunx & His Punx having more of their unique brand of trashy retro fun

Atoms For Peace serve up a bit of trippy desert animation.
 This one gets pretty good in the middle!

Chris Stewart posted this awesome live version of Tom Waits' "Cemetery Polka" from way back in the day. Gracias, Chris!

Yikes! Vincent Price shares a truly messed up recipe!

Blegh! Ryan sent this clip of Brittany Spears' live Vegas mic feed.
Karaoke, anyone?! Cheers, R!

And finally, my brother Peter sent this rather messed up metal version of Michael Jackson's " Man In The Mirror"! Haha ... Danke, Peter!
