Yes, it’s Friday. Not just Friday: it’s Bloated Gut Friday.

By now, the malls are already packed with frenzied, sweaty consumers. Considering that many of them are digesting bellies full of turkey, candied yams, pumpkin pie, and Gawd knows what else, it’s a good day to stay away. For that matter, it’s a bad day to be a midget in a department store elevator.

But let us not think upon such crude and earthy matters. No, let us contemplate the fine arts, specifically that most ethereal and sublime of the arts, Music.

Aw, fuck it. Let’s just listen to whatever shit Elisson’s Little White Choon-Box is playing. Here ya go:
  1. Cours d’Amours - In Trutina - Christian Thielemann, Orff: Carmina Burana
  2. Revolution 9 - The Beatles
  3. The Blimp (mousetrapreplica) - Captain Beefheart

    Master, master
    This is recorded thru a fly’s ear
    ’N’ you have t’ have a fly’s eye t’ see it
    It’s the thing that’s gonna make Captain Beefheart
    And his Magic Band fat
    Frank it’s the big hit
    It’s the blimp
    It’s the blimp, Frankie
    It’s the blimp

    When I see you floatin’ down the gutter
    I’ll give you a bottle o’ wine
    Put me on the white hook
    Back in the fat rack
    Shadrach ee shack
    The sumptin’ hoop, the sumptin’ hoop
    The blimp, the blimp
    The drazy hoops, the drazy hoops
    They’re camp, they’re camp
    Tits, tits, the blimp, the blimp
    The mother ship, the mother ship
    The brothers hid under their hood
    From the blimp, the blimp
    Children, stop yer nursin’ unless yer renderin’ fun
    The mother ship, the mother ship
    The mother ship’s the one
    The blimp, the blimp
    The tapes a trip it’s a trailin’ tail
    It’s traipsin’ along behind the blimp, the blimp
    The nose has a crimp
    The nose is the blimp, the blimp!
    It blows the air, the snoot isn’t fair
    Look up in the sky, there’s a dirigible there!
    The drazy hoops whir
    You can see them just as they were
    All the people stir
    ’N’ the girls’ knees tremble
    ’N’ run ’n’ wave their hands
    ’N’ run their hands over the blimp, the blimp
    Daughter don’t you dare
    Oh momma, who cares?
    It’s the blimp, it’s the blimp!

  4. Vega-Tables - Brian Wilson
  5. Interlude - Matisyahu
  6. Razor Boy - Steely Dan
  7. Honey Pie - The Beatles
  8. You Know What You Could Be - The Incredible String Band
  9. Old Master Painter/You Are My Sunshine - Brian Wilson
  10. Another Girl - The Beatles
It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
