Anonymous asked: What would the world be like if white people cared about racial inequality even 10% as much as they cared about Game of Thrones?

Oddly, in that world, we probably wouldn’t have a white-ass show like Game of Thrones to measure against.

Today I listened to Radiohead intentionally for the first time.

Radiohead is one of those bands that you are supposed to like. You don’t like them out of your own will or taste, you like them because if you don’t, people will get mad at you. The problem is that I had never really heard Radiohead, I mean I’m sure I have, but I was never like “oh that’s a cool song who’s that?” And then every time I saw them on like “the greatest bands in history” on VH1 or something, they always sounded so nondescript that it was like looking through a glass wall. I didn’t even notice they were there. But today I decided I would do my social duty and actually listen to Radiohead because I feel like people are mad at me. I decided to document the entire process. The following is exactly what happened when I decided to look up Radiohead on YouTube, and it is totally unedited.

I’m going to intentionally listen to radiohead for the first time in my life.

I’m going to type radiohead into youtube and click on something.

i clicked on the best of radiohead.

sounds like 90s grunge

with spacey guitars.

now it kinda sounds like beck or something

it sounds like a rock band

there was a weird british chord change

now it sounds like a 90s alt rock band

I’m going to skip to the middle.

ok i skipped.

now it sounds like

90s grunge

with spacey guitars

now it kinda sounds like an alt rock band

I’m going to skip ahead.

now it sounds like

a 90s grunge band

with spacey guitars

ok i can’t do this.

but now you can’t tell me i didn’t try.

I found these weird things in my closet, they kinda look like controllers but they’re really big, and they have no USB port… wtf… Well I guess I’m gonna be DJing with them this Thursday! 

If you’re in the area check out CAFE MUSIC DJs at the Arlene Francis Center cafe this Thursday at 4:30pm, we are gonna nerd out HARD on obscure old people music on vinyl, it is gonna be awesome. Broken Record, Kudjo, Loisaida and Bankshot will be putting pieces of plastic on a metal platter and wasting away at the plastic, effectively destroying the music each time we play it. Come thru!!!

Nah but for real the whole vinyl thing was my idea. Check it out if you can!

PRESENTING: LATIN PROJECT

What’s good yall. Anybody out there who has been tuning in to The Broken Record Radio Show will know that almost every week my man OLLIN a.k.a. YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD FRIENDLY MEXICAN takes the co-pilot seat on the show and provides us with much needed insight, perspective and shit-talking. We have talked at length about his musical projects, but it’s finally time to formally introduce his tracks to the world. We finally got Ollin to upload his songs to Soundcloud, and he’s even booked up for an upcoming show: April 19th at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa for the 100,000 DJs for Change festival. And yours truly will be on the wheels of st—… plastic. So check out some of the best Hip Hop I’ve heard coming from Rosa (including “The Resistance,” which is a project involving fellow SR emcee Maestro), and stay tuned for the obviously inevitable Broken Record Latin Project collabs. ROSA!

DJ Broken Record - The Entire Moving Flying Spinning World and What Is In It

My friend and fellow Santa Rosa expressionist Mori has been making mixtapes lately… like, mixes.. on tape… So they came over with their boombox and I dragged out a crate of random ass records from storage, along with my turntables, and recorded this tape. It’s different than anything else I’ve done under Broken Record for lots of reasons. It’s a really refreshing and intriguing format, especially since I had no idea what most of the records were going to sound like until I put them on the deck during the recording, and I refrained as much as possible from going back to make edits (only did it once). Still trying to decide if part of the format is to keep it on the tape and not putting it online. I think I’ll eventually make a more intentional one, but I think the idea of capturing a totally improvised expression onto a little square box is kinda neat. A time capsule of a 90-minute slice of my life. Also it’s debatable whether the music on here is even listenable to the average dance music enthusiast. lol.

ps Fun Fact: This method is how Darkfoot used to record her albums originally. I still have an original copy of one of her tapes from like 5 years ago =D
