Tequila Warning

Please, someone tell me who produced this gem:

It’s a mock ad (radio-safe) extolling the virtues of Tequila, and listing in standard pharm-ad fashion “Side-effects may include loss of money, loss of clothing, loss of virginity, delusions of grandeur, table-dancing…” The mp3 is all over the web with filename: AlcoholWarning_MMH.mp3, but no site credits an author. Anyone?

Pedestrian Fanatic cast

This week’s HV cast is “Pedestrian Fanatic” (mp3) by Abner Serd: The paving of America as seen from the shoulders and sidewalks of our country’s roads. Musings-in-motion recorded during a 5000 trek from Arizona to Georgia to Maine. “It is becoming illegal to travel this country by foot.” Music by Jeff Arntsen of Racket Ship. (9:55):

Sam Jackson’s Stack-O-Lee

Once again I try to get music stuck in my head out, and into yours. This week it’s Samuel L Jackson’s smokin’ cover of the trad Stack-O-Lee (mp3):

It’s from the soundtrack to the movie Black Snake Moan, w/ R L Burnside’s band backing. For you fellow on-air radio types, here’s an edited (de-fuq-ified) FCC-friendly clean mp3, cuz the original sure ain’t.

Found the file at Salon‘s Daily Download, which also linked to the masterful Mississippi John Hurt 1928 vers (mp3 at archive.org):

OCD Chips

Chips from the right
Chips dead center
Chips from the left

The other night, I walked into a liquor store in San Diego. I wanted a bag of chips. I walked over to the rack. I couldn’t buy the bag of chips. But I left with a new found respect for OCD.

It’s a behaviour that can produce aesthetically pleasing results.

I downloaded some audio (OCD Chips, the soundtrack mp3) from an experimental narrative film about OCD called “Closed In,” filmed by Nathan Heartman.

I like to imagine it’s what goes through the store owner’s head when he’s putting chips on the shelves. Listen here:

9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes

Michael Bronner wrote this real-world drama from 9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes (August 2006 Vanity Fair). This web version is accompanied by mp3s from tapes labeled “Northeast Air Defense Sector—DAT Audio Files—11 Sep 2001.” Here’s an excerpt, a conversation between NORAD’s Senior Airman Stacia Rountree, Tech Sergeant Shelley Watson, Master Sergeant Maureen Dooley:
ROUNTREE: A plane just hit the World Trade Center.
ROUNTREE: Was it a 737?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE (background): Hit what?
WATSON: The World Trade Center–
DOOLEY: Who are you talking to? [Gasps.]

NORAD: Is this real-world or exercise?
BOSTON CENTER: No, this is not an exercise, not a test.
