Top 5 Female Guitarists In The World 2014! Voted By You!

Now that I’ve got your attention. Personally, I think gender shouldn’t be an issue when it comes to music. If you’re dedicated and you’ve got talent – you’ll be recognised for it. So don’t make gender an issue – this means neither using it as a tool, nor getting precious about a few ignorant fools raining on your vagina. (Give them hell though, have fun).

Morale of the story is – good music and musicianship shine true. This clip is about a bunch of dedicated, talented babes SHREDDING. Maximum-viewing pleasure. Yes please.

(NB. shredding babes also come in male and every-other-gender of forms, because, equality). Chucked in an extra moral there for ya.

Paul McCartney – McCartney II: Check My Machine

Listen to it once and you’ll want to check your damned machine for a few days. What machine? I don’t know… one of those voice recorders people had hooked up to their telephones circa McCartney’s wife with a mullet. Maybe Maharishi Mahesh Yogi taught Paul that the body/mind/soul is a machine that must be deeply contemplated and examined for some higher purpose? Nah, pretty sure it’s just about a guy in his home-studio; high; recording, looping and sampling on a tape machine; limited on lyrics; but, being Paul McCartney; so… whatevs… #1 HIT CLASSIC.

Earth Sounds (So Strange..) (Symphony Of The Planets) (Voice Of Earth)

Headphones or crank it on the speakers. Our planet earth, home to everything you know and love, floating through the infinite void, being a weirdo. Makes you feel pretty small huh? And so we should.

Just kidding…

Ya Ho Wha 13 – Penetration: An Aquarian Symphony

Tripped out maaan. I watched The Source Family documentary recently (do it, I won’t spoil the story for you) and am pretty excited about adding their albums to my collection. That there is Jim Baker aka Father Yod aka Yahowa – cult leader, marine, amateur singer, millionaire, murderer, health food owner, martial arts expert, polygamist, handgliding enthusiast…

52 Hertz – Audio Tape #001

From Wikipedia: “The 52-hertz whale is an individual of unidentified whale species, which has been regularly detected in many locations since the 1980s, calling at the very unusual frequency of 52 Hz. This pitch is a much higher frequency than that of the Blue Whale (15-20Hz) or Fin Whale (20Hz), whose migration patterns it is most similar to. It appears to be the only individual with this call, and has hence been described as the world’s loneliest whale.”

I dunno. This guy was making a mixtape sharing project in 2011 about it – have a read. This could send you on a Youtube rabbit hole like it did me. Actually, I should get back to that…
