Mix Tape #8 - Residents Videos Sure Are Creepy

I used to watch the shit out of Night Flight and, as such, was treated to a heavy dose of Residents videos. The one below is for a song that is not on this mix, but it's worth posting for nostalgia-value. At the time, it gave me both the creeps and a boner for the tight-sweatered eyeball lady in the chair. This is actually not a great combination to imprint on someone of an impressionable age. And maybe it explains some things.

But the Residents song on here had a creepy video, too, and it's worth looking for. And none of the above has anything to do with how the mix turned out, which, I'm happy to say, was pretty good!

I need to find out if there's a plane to Skaville. It sounds like a nice place and maybe it's not covered in snow that no one will plow. Because that would be a refreshing change.

I also need to figure out who the hell Tic Tac Toe were because if they were capable of the brain-infecting track enclosed, they may be plotting something in a smoke filled room somewhere. And they must be stopped.

Oh. And the funny thing about that Shellac song. I tried to find a less-shitty copy of it and the two I got from Soulseek had the same skip. Which means my awful rip of it has been circulating for years. Go, go internet!
