The Genesis 2014 Remikeifications

“Can’t I just call it ‘audio restorations’ or something sane?” you’re probably wondering.  Why not be megalomaniacal about it?  I am quite awesome at it.  And one day – one day – I shall have me a tropical volcanic island lair/headquarters with the volcanic mountain carved into the shape of my head.  One day. But […]

The remikeification of Genesis shall commence…

Well, I’ve plowed my way through all of those 2007 remixed Genesis albums I talked about a while ago.  If you don’t know what I mean when I talk about Mikeification, read that post.  It’s audio editing.  Do I sense?  Not mind. Now that I’ve actually listened to all those albums in their remixed form, […]

Mikeification wins again!

I’ve babbled before about what I call “Mikeification” – which is essentially audio restoration.  I use an audio editor to modify the music I listen to so that it sounds more pleasing to my ears.  I’m not talking about mashing it up with something else, or adding dope beats.  No, primarily I take my old […]

Song of the Day – “Moribund the Burgermeister” by Peter Gabriel

Let’s get a couple of things out of the way as you are grooving to this strange and wonderful song. Moribund = Stagnant and without vitality or growth Burgermeister = Town councilor, ie. Mayor This song is not, in fact about this guy: Nor this guy: But that looks like one hell of a burger. […]

Song of the Day – “One for the Vine” by Genesis

Don’t ask me what this song is about.  Because if you did, I’d probably say something silly like it’s about a guy who thinks he’s the messiah and ends up leading his followers to a battle in which they are slaughtered.  Oh, and he sees Jesus right around then. I don’t know if I’m right.  […]

Song of the Day – “The Battle of Epping Forest” by Genesis

More to come when I’m not nauseous, when my head isn’t pounding and when all I can do is fall asleep. (Later…) I just slept for 17 hours. Yikes!  Zounds!  Egad!  Gadzooks!  ZOMFGBBQWTF! That beats my previous record of sleeping for 16 hours when I was a kid.  I had a fever. I still have […]

Song of the Day – “Dodo / Lurker” by Genesis

Ah… the 80s.  I think it was inevitable that  all those great bands from the 70s looked around at each other in the 80s and said “Well, we’ve got all this great new recording technology.  Recordings can sound better than they ever have.  New advances in even stereo equipment and vinyl pressing can make everything […]
