    Voila! Instant David Lynch film.

  2. I had fun with time stretching this weekend. Here’s Yakety Sax/Trombone/Tuba/FogHorn/Vader
    An easy effect and well-known due to Inception but the results are often surprisingly different for the same piece at different speeds and worth time spent playing around.

    Next time I’m in my 20’s and taking drugs, this will be on my preferred shag tape.

    Oddly calming.  Like one of those”nature sound” generators for background noise.

    This is almost exactly like that cock-rock ambient mix that surfaced a couple months ago. Pretty sure it was posted on the Boing. Loving this Blondie thing, though. Delicious noise.

    These days on YouTube it takes 30 minutes to listen to the original.

    Sigur Ros covers Blondie?

    I like how their time stretched version of the Doctor Who theme sounds like the sort of incidental music Doctor Who used back then!
