Mondo Diablo Episode 269 is Bacchanalia Part I: The Last and Least

August 29, 2010

Welcome to the first part of a big three-parter!

I have enjoyed Peter Schickele and his disovery, P.D.Q. Bach for, garsh, 25 years at least, for “Bob’s” sake. Funny I haven’t shared much with you yet. well, not so funny (yes, so funny). All of my music is on vinyl. So, I had to do an epic search and and epic emptying of my bank account to get some non-scratchy stuff. Of course, some of the scratchy stuff is inevitable. I listened to it a lot, because I was a nerd. A big nerd. I used to sing some of this stuff in school, because I knew people would have no idea what I was doing. And of course, they didn’t give a shit, either. No worries.

Delay and more delay

August 27, 2010

I’m so sorry *cough* but I’ve come down with a *cough* cold. I’m actually working on sort of an epic project, too. But this cold is dragging me down and, not only that, but I have to drive 300 miles away to Jury Selection at Federal Court on Monday. I hope I can get something done for you before that. But if not, and you don’t hear from me, assume I’ve been cut off from all media–I will try to be honest in order to be rejected, but you never know *cough* with these things.


Mondo Diablo Episode 268: Weaponizing Mozart

August 19, 2010

For your education and edification, to weed out the undesirables from our community; the teenagers and the Dicks, and to keep everything clean and unsullied by grotesque graffiti, spit and skateboarding, I offer you this purely Classic show full of Classical Music written by Classical Men of classical age. Well. Some of these pieces were written during the last century, so it’s still in keeping with the theme of the show. This, solemn, serious classical show. Enjoy, and keep your hands to yourselves.

Mondo Diablo Episode 267: Satan: The Lesser of Two Evils

August 12, 2010

Turns out I’m not the only one who thinks that one of the great injustices of the Christian religion is its portrayal of Satan as The Greatest Evil, which isn’t even warranted by biblical standards. This week, I read these two essays:
