DoubleHappys "The Other's Way"

we should blast this song out into space because if some "alien" hears this then they'll take pity on our poor behavior and maybe even want to party with us. this song is what got me inspired to delve deeper into the sounds of NZ during Mike Slumberland's 45th birthday party because I'd never heard this before. Worth mentioning that Shayne's next group Straitjacket Fits were the first band from NZ that I ever heard and thus loved.

Skeptics "AFFCO"

YES YES YES!! if the billions who buy their neatly packaged meat products saw this video how many would think twice? i love bands who have this kind of audacity and aren't afraid to touch on the ugliness in the world. (sorry if you think mass slaughter of animals is beautiful)


stop the big wheel, the fields are blowing...

"I will go to the bank by the wood, and become undisguised and naked;
I am mad for it to be in contact with me."

-Walt Whitman

this needs more ears

There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
~Lord Byron
