You look ridiculous if you don’t dance
So you might as well
dance.”

スーパー戦隊シリーズ Super Sentai

スーパー戦隊シリーズ 1

スーパー戦隊シリーズ 2

Two rousing themes from legendary, long running Japanese television series スーパー戦隊シリーズ Sūpā Sentai Shirīzu, or Super Sentai series in English. The adventures of the heroic seven were produced by the equally legendary Toei studios, who shamefully later sold the concept to the Marvel Company, rubbish merchants hell-bent on reducing everyone to the intellectual level of a suburban American 13-year old boy. Naturally, the resulting new Power Rangers had none of the charm of the original.

Divine Emanuelle Theme

laura

Christian Anders – Love Love Love

All hail The Divine One, played by none other than Laura Gemser, and to Christan Anders who wrote and sang the theme song for the film, known as Die Todesgöttin des Liebescamps (Death Goddess of Love Camp), Divine Emanuelle or simply Love Camp. And get this: herr Anders not only also wrote and directed the whole thing, he co-stars in it as well!

The film has everything except a character actually called Emanuelle. There are frenzied dance displays to wild 70s style disco music on a Greek island, rampant nudity, endless soft core groping sessions, violence, amazing hairdos and huge amounts of totally crazed dialoque. The Divine One is a sight to behold, a flaming creature who rules the hippie members of a sex cult with an iron hand – anyone not embracing her free love ideology is subjected to vicious whippings, or bluntly put to death. And the title theme! Oscars for best soundtrack songs have been given to lesser entries, that’s for sure.

Unfinished Journey @ 33

Sheets in the ForestBiddu Orchestra – Unfinished Journey @ 33

A few days ago I spotted a leaking hydraulic pipe in my car. Naturally my first reaction was that all things come to an end and my beloved magic carpet would be dead forever. Thankfully cigarettes, alcohol and happy people encouraged me to fix it. It was sort of fun to wallow in LHM-fluids under the car in order to attach a replacement pipe to the system. Now the road is open again! So, where next? Maybe to spot some castle ruins or abandoned buildings in the forest. As much as I love road tripping, I’d really really love to try cycling again (a motivation deprivation after all those years with bad knees and still bad knees). Everything is such addictive fun with bicycles. For example as a child I remember riding through the sheets. Unfortunately there’s no picture to prove it, but it did happen… maybe once, until it was forbidden as about anything that was fun. That’s why you have to settle for a still from Vera Chytilovás Ovoce stromu rajských jíme (Fruit of Paradise). Soundscape from a classic Biddu 45 played at wrong speed.

A Few More For The Road

moreroadNights are gradually getting darker and the nightly trips to the nearest lakes feel much more dreamy. My favourite swimming spot is located about one hour drive from Turku. The road includes a short highway passage and twisty floating roads in the forest. Here are a few grooves tested on those roads. Some already approved on the dance floor too.

Charlie Hillson – Disco Flight 905

Krackers – Machines

A Band Called “O” – Coasting

TCP – Oasis

Huggin’ On The Express

train

Dream Express – Huggin’ On The Express

From romantic steam locomotives of old to the sleek bullet trains of today, travelling by train still holds a certain romanticism and excitement. A train is the ideal environment for an illicit encounter, or for commiting a crime. A closed society that is relatively isolated for certain periods of time. Think of all the possibilities: private and semi-private compartments, sleeping cars, baggage cars, dining area, public cars and lounges to stage action in. For a quickie, a toilet. There are borders to be crossed, exotic cities to reach, dangerous and elegant trestles to cross…

This tune is another unmissable item for train enthusiasts worldwide.

Total Eclipse

Klaus Nomi – Total Eclipse

Klaus Nomi – Wasting My Time

The high operatic notes reached by Waylon on his record Crème de la Crème have been documented here several times as has been the output of Sylvester. Now let’s hear it for Klaus Nomi, born as Klaus Sperber in Immerstadt, Bavaria. Nomi was a one-time usher at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin, as well as a performer at a gay discothèque Kleist Casino, before moving to New York in 1972 where he became legendary in the city’s art and club scenes.

The voice you hear is a falsetto, not a castrato. A castrato singer’s voice is the result of a castration done before puberty.

The creation of castrati singers became popular first in Rome during the mid-16th century, when the pope banned women singing in churches or on the stage. Italian boys with promising voices would be taken to a back-street barber-surgeon, drugged with opium, and placed in a hot bath. The expert would snip the ducts leading to the testicles, which would wither over time. By the early 1700s, it is estimated that around 4,000 boys a year were getting the operation. Some lived thru the mutilation and many died from complications. Few became celebrated singers.

The high notes of a pre-pubescent boy wafting from the lungs of an adult were said to sound magical and ethereal. The prowess came from an increased breath capacity. The lack of testosterone allowed the skeleton to continue to grow beyond what was normal. Limbs would elongate. As would ribs. This was why castrati had such exceptional lung power. Nobody now actually knows what a castrato singer sounded like, as the practice became illegal in 1861, before recordings could be produced.

Groovy Records For Driving At Night

groovy records photoI had nothing better to do tonight than drive pointlessly around the small country roads. Usually I like to go for a refreshing swim, but tonight I was feeling too lazy for anything that sensible. As I can’t afford a car with sexy engine noises it was something from the stereos then. If it sounds groovy in the car it sounds groovy anywhere? Here are a few examples tested. Sound qualities vary from vg- to near mint. Enjoy!

Igor Savin i Orkestar Stanka Selaka – U Mukama Rođena

Philippe Chany – Lettre À Monsieur Le Législateur (De La Loi Sur Les Stupéfiants)

Tribu Bantu – Elephants In Love
