OLA subverts.'s that time again. End of year approaching. A year of buffoonery in politics, spoon-bendery in genreification, and verifying the point of writing for this site in the wake of huge microblogging. 

I've had a nice fight for me and I love you very much. Predictive text helps my mind speaking a monologue like the disabled donut I am. 

Without further ado. Here are some starter categories for you to peruse in your roundup.
Free to join in. Just post in the thread here. Then, I'll sort out a properly had sleep blogpost.

Track of 2018 for me personally is Florence ATM - Hunger.
Album of 2018 has to be FATM - High As Hope. Album of mine is Tapas Mosaic.

Mixtape of 2018: Dredge - Late Night Tales.

Random moment of the year: visiting Costa Del Sol, Spain. Brilliant 1 month long rest. Many delicious meals walks and good days out. But for some reason we weren't overtly bowleeeed over by Nerja, Almeria...well, read more in Freeze Dry when it's published by Just Fiction. Fiction, if it ever is. Spanish restaurant of 2018 is Miguel's Tapas Bar, Competa. Morcilla sausages with pineapple and honey. Yummy. And Snow Patrol played for us the next visit. Grin

Favourite book is the memoir set in fictional reality that I just finished the manuscript draft. "Freeze Dry" is a novel about internal disorientation. There are 17 pages of short story, 7 pages of dementia patient poems, 17 pages of alternate reality extension, and a 1 page eulogy. That's the idea, and there are many offshoot publications in the crime genre based around this identifying fantasia.

I did not go to any straight gigs this year. Instead, I went to swanky restaurants. That said, what's a gig? I saw and heard two really good nights of DJing at The Beehive before disco start in Carterton. One night was a house and club music night in lieu of Ashley DJ Smasher Sturges. The second gig was very alternative, a Ryoji Ikeda ambient set playing drones underneath the ambience of AJ vs Povetkin.

Favourite radio is Spotify radio. Followed by Radio 3, with mild white noise or not. Related is mantra of the year, 21st October 2018:

Sorry for the middle of night cal. Just felt like I'd died. Really, terrifying dream. Listened to music therapy very low volume until 12pm midnight. Then i thought the music was too much so i turned all the electronics off.

Next thing the plug bracket had fallen down in the dark 5 minutes later and i had a spiteful nightmare after that.

Glass smashing noisy, heart attack special reverberation like the door was being kicked down. Shouting voices incoherent and synchronising with what I might do. Blacks and whites glaring at me angrily through a big window.

Really angry at myself for being terrified by it. It's a tale for the book. I honestly thought i was about to be bounty killed.

Paranoid android. Watching boxing might be entertaining at 11pm and especially high on cocoa. But heavens opened. Heavens above...I had to ask for help from Annastay. She's my big God. Even if I cannot see her again. Only I have. I will always love her.

My top thread, if this thread picks up, is this one here. Highlights of the year, innit! There's no substitute.

Favourite website:
For the FATM and BOC and Digitakt groups.

Fatm is florence super fan club.
Boc is boards of canada group.
Digitakt is for the digitakt elektron technology.

I've also enjoyed the Kid Moxie and St Vincent groups.
Bojack friends club has too much of the time before it.

As usual, everyone else has better things to do, leaving Eoyre in his gloomy place.

It's early doors yet, still two months to think about it

Music playlisting for wooly today...

VA-Acid House Anthems CD1 of 3CD compilation.

Released in 2013, this 1988 era retrospective is full of the finest ecstacy inducing acid, the style that took the rave generation by storm since 1990 proper.

Damien Rice- O

Found in a Swanley charity shop. Cathartic folk with an art ambient edge. Never broke the deadlock of the mainstream, it's deep dark stuff.

Chad Valley - Young Hunger

Gay as I like vaporwave ish pop music with a decent use of autotune. Autotune is employed as a frequency modulator rather than a spectrum analyser type of thing. One of my hospital scripted projects developed by Jonquil's Hugo Manuel. I thunk.

Path Optimist -Deceptive Truths LP

One of mine that I remember consciously making, but only just...on my 220 quid Korg Triton. Layers of motorik rhythms and cloudy mixolydian sticking in modal arrangement.

Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker

When I was suicidal pre-asylum I wrote in the Pheonix the poem "You Want It Darker (We Kill The Flame)" as a reference to the idea my sister's place had been burnt down or was on the verge of collapse. The metaphor continues throughout the adapted lyrics sung by Leonard, on to me his best album.

Marina And The Diamonds- The Family Jewels

I adore her voice and the way this pop star transforms lyrics. "Electra Heart (Deluxe) CD" is one of my favourite pop albums of the last ten years. Amazing artist.

L Double -Ten Years Of Flex (Industries)

Fast soul music. Enough said. Thanks Neil Monteiro for this CD.

And round off, Mike Paradinas and Richard D James (Aphex Twin) - Expert Knob Twiddlers

Quality electronica nuggets from two of the horticulturalists of the Warp Records style.

All music available on my Spotify subscription, so get stuck in! Love, Michael Muttley SubVersion.
