End of August at the Hotel Ozone

Great movie and a excellent view if you are into the end of the world. Its a super bleak, 1967-Czechoslovakian film from directors Pavel Jurácek and Jan Schmidt. Best human and least affected human extinction film I have ever seen. Supposedly all of the actors but one were recruited from the army without any prior acting experience. Only adds to the bleakness and flat profile of the actors.

Favorites from the lab

A chemistry lab I believe is one of the loudest labs ever. Or at least the one Pax and I visited in Lexington a bit over a year ago. These recordings have made their way into Auk Theatre soundtracks but I think they sound really good stand alone! Nothing about the original sound is modified.

Another odd one

oh yeah I first posted this by accident. Another record with interest in the temple of understanding.

not invited to dinner

Except I probably wouldnt open the door if this guy came over. I am guessing he would be selling shoes, or toasters.

Found the temple of understanding

Possibly one of the best records ever picked up is a (perhaps early 60s) record called the Temple of Understanding with Mrs. Dickerman Hollister Interviewed by Rabbi Samuel Silver. It is regarding a 'place' where all can come in one giant religious understanding. As off key as this record is I was totally surprised when I found that the temple actually exists as a not-for-profit founded in 1960. Although there is no indication that the awesome building Mrs. Hollister had envisioned was ever built unfortunately.

The message is telling...and quite informative.
