The K-Tel Scrolls

And verily, an angel spake unto me and sayeth: "Hey, did you know you have this K-Tel mini catalog dealie in one of your records?"

"No, uh, guess I did and forgot . . . "

"Well, maybe you should scan this and share it online." And the angel drew forth a flaming sword and with bright and shining countenance sayeth, "Yeah, maybe on unterkayness."

"That old ghost blog . . . "

"Yeah, sure, why not?"

Anyway, there's too much here for any one person to unpack with words. Idea is that several world religions will begin here with you all's close reading and interpretation of say, the 8-track tape selector. Or the "try it in a t-shirt" um, T-shirt.

Be fruitful and multiply (clicketh to crazily embiggen/see these really big scans):

just hitting the snooze alarm to say

This watershed moment in pop history, Mia Farrow's haircut, is brought to you by the wraith of Louise Brooks and the good folks at The Hair Hall of Fame.

Now if I can only get the Theme from Peyton Place out of my head . . .

the Turing test as administered by Simon Cowell

Or maybe Clive Davis . . .

Well past the parochial brouhaha regarding Milli Vanilli, supah autotuned vocals and other quaint pop music simulations, the HRP-4C Gynoid brings us all the way to Stepford.

Soon enough the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will have Iggy droids and Roy Orbitrons doing silicon moves.

Meanwhile, I'll be rewatching Blade Runner and hoping to fit in.

As seen on Waveformless.

If too intense, try this video of Hunter Thompson and a Hell's Angel on Canadian TV. Seen on Pathway To Unknown Worlds.
