World Mix Tape Vol III

Welcome to the OMGIM world mix tape installment III

The first track I will be posting is from the Frida soundtrack, composed by Elliot Goldenthal. I couple weeks ago I was lucky enough to see the movie Frida. I leanrned that Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera were communists revolutionaries in Mexico. She turned out to have a very fascinating life. Frida had an affair with Leon Trotsky.

A couple of weeks ago I was also unlucky enough to be employed at a restaurant called Frida's. It's got a lot of Frida's artwork on the walls, and I was imformed by the supervisor that the owner was "an eccentric man." I figured that meant he was an eccentric art loving type. It turns out that was just code for him being a crazy sexist asshole who exploits his employees. If you don't put in your two weeks notice he doesn't give you your last paycheck, which is illegal but he can get away with it because no one is going to go to small claims court for one paycheck...yet. He also has the reputation of only hiring girls with big tits. He told one of my friends who was working for him at the time: "Go tell that girl that she's too ugly to work here." And has a bad habit of slapping female employees asses. And he expliots mexican labor. Excuse my cliche, but Frida Kahlo, the communist/feminist would be rolling in her grave.

Frida - La Llorona

The next track on our mix-tape will not be so filled with spite. Who could feel spite in the magical land of Brazilia? Not me. This will be a track from a Gilles Peterson compilation called Gilles Peterson in Brazil. He seriously plays the best music of any DJ/producer in the world right now in my opinion...which is worth more than anyone elses. This is a Milton Nascimento track covered by an all girl group named Quarteto Em Cy. It reminds me of warm.

Quarteto EM Cy - Tudo que voce podia ser

The final track is from the junky capital of the world: Vancouver. Black mountain frontman Stephen McBean, who also heads Pink Mountaintops works at a needle exchange facility in BC. Help the guy out and buy the album. This song also reminds me of warm...then fuzzy... then very very cold... then the withdrawal...then just one more hit for the road. A great man once said, "Heroin is the only substance known to man that can replace a woman." That sonofabitch was me.


Ps - Sorry Laz for encroaching on your art expertise and sorry Mazur for encroaching on your movie genious.

Well, I love Bright Lights too, but I can only add you to my other blog, If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger . . . (but I'd add y'all to Bright Lights if I could!).

Best I can do, folks.

I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.
