Difficult Listening Hour 2021.02.13: Snow Day!

The Seattle area was getting inundated with snow, so every song in this mix was pulled from a playlist of tracks with titles that included the word “snow”, “winter”, “cold”, “froze”, or “ice”. Otherwise unrehearsed and unplanned, all done on the fly.

Difficult Listening Hour 2020.08.08

Week twenty-four of my unplanned, unrehearsed, seat-of-the-pants goofing around. As a way of getting back into practice and doing something regularly, I’ve started doing regular Twitch broadcasts, now on Saturday mid-mornings. These are the results. Anything goes.

Difficult Listening Hour 2020.06.13: NSFQ (Not Safe for Quarantine) Edition

Moving into our fourth month of COVID-19 induced restrictions and “shelter in place” recommendations, I think a lot of people are getting a little frisky. So here’s two hours of tunes that could be considered either entirely appropriate or entirely inappropriate for the situation, depending on your point of view.

Closer to Virginity (nine inch nails vs. Madonna)

This is a bit of silliness that had its genesis years ago — around twenty, actually — one night when I was DJing at Gig’s Music Theater up in Anchorage. With nine inch nails’ “Closer” playing, when it got to the chorus, I slap-faded over to Madonna’s “Like a Virgin”, creating (however clumsily) the mashed-up chorus, “I want to fuck you like a virgin…”. Not only did it get laughs, but every so often I’d have people come up and ask me to do it again (never an easy task when doing it live).

Many years later, and with better technology (albeit technology I don’t really know how to use; this was my first real experiment with Logic Pro), I decided to come back and attempt a more modern version of the idea.

Mostly, I think it works. Enough to post, at least. While I’m not sure this one is worthy of the dance floor, hopefully it at least gets a few laughs.

Sounds From the Lost Abbey 07

Back in February, I took up a challenge from one of my friends (prompted by the Gigs mix I posted) to create a mix based around songs that I’d have played at the Lost Abbey, during the mid- to late-1990s. To get a little help putting together the playlist, I put out a call for requests on Facebook, and ended up with something around 14 hours of possible songs, almost entirely pulled from requests by people who used to see me spin at the Lost Abbey.

Since 14 hours is far too long to do as a single mix, I’ve broken the requests up into multiple 80-ish-minute playlists. Here’s the seventh of quite a few to come!

Gigs Music Theater 1998

So this is a little bit of silly self-indulgence…but then, wouldn’t that pretty much describe this entire website? 😉

Back when I was DJing at Gig’s Music Theater, I was also running a website for the club (and though I have no way of verifying this, I’ve always assumed that we were one of the first clubs to have a website running). As part of the website, I kept track of my requests, and kept a running “top requests” list. Since I archived the website as it was when the club shut down, I still have the last “top requests” list that I posted, back in 1998. Looking at it the other day, it struck me that it could make for an entertaining playlist….

So here we are: Two hours and forty-five minutes of the top club hits in 1998, as determined by the requests at an all-ages, non-alcoholic, alternative club in Anchorage, Alaska. In other words, this list probably wouldn’t match a similar list anywhere and anytime else.

It’s a little rough around the edges in spots, but that’s cause it’s recorded “live”, with no post-processing or editing. It’s not perfect, but I’ve rarely been perfect, and I think it ended up an honest and pretty fun throwback to what you’d have heard at Gig’s “back in the day”.
