Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.


Firefly & Serenity - Renegade

I've just been made aware that the video I embedded in The Big Band 'Ballad of Serenity' post was taken down by Fox.

Hopefully this will make up for it.


And I shall remember him forever, howling down that freeway in the sky, knocking over the angels

Today, I heard the news that David Carradine had died. I liked 'Kill Bill', and I never really saw much of 'Kung Fu', the two bodies of work that have been cited the most in his obituaries, but I will always know him as 'Frankenstein'. Frankenstein, who lost a leg in '98, an arm in '99. Frankenstein, the champion of 'Death Race 2000', one of my all-time favourite films.

I tried to think of way I could pay tribute, and then I realised I already had: ten years ago, I released an album called 'A Case of Passion Exceeding Skill'. On that album were 2 tracks called 'Wrong Way, Go Back' (Parts 1 & 2), which were made up predominately of 'Death Race 2000' samples.

So here's to you, Mr. President Frankenstein.
