Like the Hitler Zombie It Returns: A Random Ten on a Friday

I haven’t done this in a while; so now seems as good a time as any. I fired up iTunes and let ‘er rip on “Shuffle Play,” and this is what came up:

  1. Woody Guthrie, Talking Dust Bowl Blues (from: Dust Bowl Ballads)
  2. David Bowie, Lady Stardust (from: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars)
  3. The Sisters of Mercy, 1969 (from: Enter The Sisters)
  4. The Mamas & The Papas, California Dreamin’ (from: Greatest Hits)
  5. The Stooges, Little Doll (from: The Stooges)
  6. Do Make Say Think, Bruce E Kinesis (from: Goodbye Enemy Airship The Landlord Is Dead)
  7. The Animals, Monterey (from: Retrospective)
  8. The Cramps, Surfin’ Dead (from The Return of the Living Dead Original Soundtrack)
  9. Stevie Wonder, You Haven’t Done Nothin’ (from: Fulfillingness’ First Finale)
  10. The Arcade Fire, Wake Up (from: Funeral)

And a special bonus random track:

Kak, Trieulogy: I) Golgotha II) Mirage III) Rain (from: Kak-Ola)

Wow, that’s a bizarre mix, even from my collection. All it needed was some old Frank Sinatra to make a really strange playlist.

Bonus points to anyone who can tell me who Kak was and a bit about the band. Your prize? You’ll have shown yourself to have the same bit of knowledge about obscure bands that Orac does…

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
