Sex, Lies, and death by synthpop

After listening to the wonderful Sublime Frequencies' Radio Pyongyang, I dug this one up. Yeah, it's one of the bands whose members were executed by the fattie Kim Jong-un -- the singer's ex-boyfriend --, allegedly accused of pornography, amongst other things.

Not much to say about the music, mostly propaganda stuff filled with synth tracks. Enjoyable at times, eerie at others, kinda like a pea soup. I can't recommend enough the aforementioned Sublime Frequencies release, though!

Tapes For Sale!

so this adorable guy got very very sick a couple of days ago & i had to rush him to an emergency clinic (did you know they have emergency rooms for animals? i didn't). he's home with me now & seems to be on the mend (fingers crossed). the bill came out to about three grand, which was my entire savings. soooo this leads me to sell off my cherished cassette collection. most tapes will run between $5 to $10 bucks, with some being somewhere over that depending on how much i had to initially spend to get them. i will be posting a list along with some photos & prices later on today. any help would be much appreciated towards gregg's vet bills! thank y'all for reading this & hopefully i'll hear from some of you soon!

exotica lite from robert drasnin which came out in 59'. nothing too mind blowing, but a very nice listen.

atlantis purge.
one of the undersung heroes of the new age movement, & one of my absolute favorites. not quite as good as crystal illumination, but just as splendid & lush & beautiful as inner sanctum (which was my introduction to this guy as a cassette that i bought for ten cents). if you new age at all, or are starting to get into it, or wanna dip yr toes in, then this is a wonderful place to start!
