ことよろ。 I have been telling anyone who might’ve cared that I did not make a year-end list (entire site was down for a week and nobody said anything so it was a longshot but it’s what I do). I forgot about this youtube list I was making as I went along tho. I fudged it by adding a couple but it’s not in any special order. Might as well post the thing:
Also, in other site news the sidebar broke. The tumblr will keep going but maybe I’ll never review all those records after all…悲しいね。
Stay safe, Stay in school and I’ll see you in Hell %

You really need to make a playlist to listen to the episodes in order. Maybe it works backwards too, but some of the dates are wrong because the posts were edited and itunes hates the numbering system.

(You know what? I thought there was four gongs. Supposed to be four. That just goes to show ya, don’t it.)
- 01608 Unspoken theme of this episode was O-bon and I included that Halcali song because I thought it was about the festival. It’s actually about another one that also involves setting a mountain on fire that’s just as interesting and perhaps appropriate. Also, there was a second typo I just fixed. Sorry.
- 01609 You can see some pics from my visit to Japan and the Black Sabbath concert (and the 1st Perfume concert in NYC if you go back far enough) on my instagram. I may separate the .com from the tumblr. This is the original site that has the correct dates and album links. This is the feed. Here’s the Utada link again. Here’s Mike Hill’s site with both of his podcasts (one about Metal and martial arts, one about horror movies), etc. Here is my mixcloud. Here is Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka. You can decide who is scarier.
- 01610 Here is the elusive long version video of the other song I mentioned (as of this writing). Here is Danzig getting punched in the face. I don’t know if he deserved that. Here’s the Belle & Sebastian discography. The 90s stuff is worth checking out. The three writers mentioned were Issac Asmiov, Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams. Here is the Decibel Old School Metal Issue. This is the J-pop wiki. This is the Antichrist Superstar wiki. This is Mike Hill’s coffee company. This is the Trailer to Yo-Yo Girl Cop. (Not “Yo-Yo Cop Girl”.) FOGPAK reviews here. Tomggg really does pronounce his name “Tomu-gu-gu-gu”. Here is another Gorey Gibbler song. If you ever listened to the era of grindcore bands that use a lot of samples it’s very funny, you may have to trust me on that. Also I forgot he was on YouTube.
- 01611 Here’s is a lyric video for the first song on the Romantique 96 album with totally different music for some reason. Not sure what to make of that. Maybe get the album. I do not know French. Henry Rollins is not a liar. It’s just a song. Maybe he’s talking about someone else. I confused the Swedish influence of some Shibuya-kei with the British influence that Belle & Sebastian share with early S-kei like Flipper’s Guitar. That was just an honest mistake and I’m not sure why I was so sure about it. There’s also a Belgian influence. You can take the JLPT. A Buddhist invented Kung Fu. You should probably know something about Postmodern Deconstruction. That Asa song is not on Spotify. (There’s another Asa. Seems to no way of dealing with two artists of the same name, nbd. Also another Rumi. Totally rare occurance, don’t worry about it.) Anyway, the video was cool. The name of the song in English would be “Blank Map”.
- 01612 Here’s the lyrics to Sun and Steel with further notes. Wiki can explain the difference between Icarus and Phaethon, but cannot explain the creative decisions behind Iron Maiden especially their cover art, which confuses things even further. I’m also confused why someone would include “Virgin” in the name of their record label but what can ya do. That comp is also on Bandcamp.I spelled out “N-qia” incorrectly somehow. Here is a Slant 6 song. Here is a less than representative Nation of Ulysses song. Find a sangha. Find a shrink. Here’s what is left of my old livejournal. Here’s a screencap of my other one that I deleted that has a slightly shorter name than I remember. No one has ever complained about the name of my band but there’s another band named “Hakujin” and I try to make them feel bad about it whenever possible. There’s also several real words for “drummer” in Japanese, but none of them sound cool. Here’s yr Alien Squid if ya missed that one. Giant Robot is a punk rock art gallery. This song is much better to listen to than me talking imo. Art school is still more worth going to than bartending school, which is pure scam. The photographers I mentioned were Frederick Sommer, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman and Joel Peter-Witkin. Learn Spanish with Duolingo. Here’s the wiki on the Turner Prize. I don’t hate it. Here’s the full P5 discography. Here’s the Neojaponisme series and here are their podcasts. This is the guy who jumped in a fire. Omniboi is not a Japanese artist. This was a genuine mistake but I don’t regret it. The version of “Wake Up” was originally included on the end of the Nice Dream EP. For whatever reason he deleted it but put another version on Love Dream. Breaking several rules at once is a good way to go out. 明けましておめでとう。
