Make A ‘90s Rock Playlist And We’ll Reveal Your Dominant Personality Trait

You got: Compassion

You are very warm and kind, and you feel most fulfilled when you’re helping and supporting other people. You are very easy to get along with, and you rarely expect the worst of people you meet. You dislike conflict and tend to gravitate to other agreeable people.

You got: Sensitivity

You’re very in touch with your emotions, and aren’t afraid to express your vulnerability. Your strong emotions can lead you to be impulsive, which can manifest itself in creativity and openness to experience as well as more self-destructive tendencies.

Shout out to all retail workers that will have to listen to the same 6 Christmas songs all day for the next 2 Months.

I was a retail worker for four years, at a bookstore, so we got fairly decent Christmas music (we’d usually choose 3-4 of that year’s holiday albums - the years that the Blind Boys of Alabama released theirs was a good year) but we’d still get sick of them.

Except one.

There was one Christmas album I never got sick of. We’d all perk up and cheer a bit when this disc got its turn in the rotation. I heard it several times a day at least. What is this magical Christmas album, you may ask?

It was “’Tis the Season” by Los Straitjackets.

Los Straitjackets are a surf-guitar instrumental combo who perform in all-black and Mexican wrestling masks.

Yep. Holiday tunes played in surf guitar. I never got sick of it. It always got my feet moving.

Here’s a sample, their version of Sleigh Ride, ah I know it so well.

How the Musical Identity is Missing in Marvel Films

Did I make this video or something??

This is fascinating!

It fucked with my mind to hear that the “Captain America Theme” from Captain America: Winter Solider, by Henry Jackman, sped up by 105% sounds very close to “Brothers in Arms” by Junkie XL for Mad Max: Fury Road. 

And “Mombassa” from Inception by Hanz Zimmer sounds a lot like “Mass vs. Acceleration” from “Drive Angry”  by Michael Wandmacher.

Marvel stopping just short of taking emotional risks? THE HELL YOU SAY. 

Other than the mixed tape in Guardians, which was popular music and not score, the only bit of sound I can even remember from any Marvel movie is the screechy sound played when the Winter Soldier showed up. I can’t even dredge up whatever’s played over the comic-pages-flipping opener in every movie and I’ve probably seen it a dozen times now. Is it even the same in every film? No idea.

I feel so sorry for those thwarted vidders! ;)
We do what we want out here on the raggedy edge. Freedom tastes sweet, don’t it?

HA. Writing your own composition and throwing in a symphony adds a level of complexity. ;)

This was so fascinating. And great to see the Elfman. Working with temps sounds beyond frustrating.

Did you know that after they switched to blind auditions, major symphony orchestras hired women between 30% to 55% more? Before bringing in “blind auditions” with a screen to conceal the the candidate, women in the top 5 major orchestras made up less than 5% of the musicians performing.

so I believe it was actually more complicated than that, in interesting ways. Because at first, when they did blind auditions, they were STILL hiring more men.

…Then they put down a carpet, so that high heels didn’t clack on the floor,  and BOOM women were suddenly getting hired.

The testers didn’t even know that’s what they were picking up on, which just goes to show how tiny of a cue it takes for misogyny to kick in.

The case of blind auditions for orchestras and how it dramatically changed the gender makeup of orchestras is a very illuminating example of gender bias, and an interesting possible way of countering it.

Jolene (33 R.P.M) - click for .mp3

Unsure where this came from, if not the palsied hands of the good Lord himself.

Simple premise: Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” slipped from 45 to 33 rpm. Nothing more; no studio trickery, no trip hop drum breaks. The guitar lopes back in and around itself. The bass becomes elastic, hot rubber. The violin stabs become sustained cello lines. The backing choir’s split harmony rattles around, slinking ghostly into the corner.  And most importantly, Parton’s once-frantic vocal is transformed from bubblegum country scrawl into something approximating field holler reverence. 

An already perfect song made transcendental..

this works … pretty much perfectly. even the vocal.

I’m not a C&W or Dolly Parton fan so I’m not familiar with the song. Listening to the two versions one after the other (”proper” speed here) it sounds as if the apparent contralto voice in the 33rpm is the original.

A lower register and slower tempo seems more appropriate to the melancholy subject of the lyrics. Obviously not the case, but there you go.
