Yep. We're a bunch of weirdo's.
I started listening to it today.
It didn't want to play in the cars/ truck for some reason.
Plugged it in the external player through my Big Mac... it didn't want to pick up through I Tunes?
Manually drove it through a file. It showed the two sides. (Novel approach by the way). Seemed to play there for some reason.
I'll get my review up here sooner than the last one.

When I was a young un, the rock station (now all Latino music) KLOL out of Houston had a lot of great mind-bending things, National Lampoon Radio Hour, StarDate, and each night (I think) the low-voiced stoned DJ would tell us it's time for...HEADPHONES ONLY...and we'd put em on and lay on the floor and turn on the UV light so our posters glowed and hoped our mom wouldn't come walking in and her dentures glowing green in the UV and we'd just lay there on the wall-to-wall carpeting and listen to some damn cool album, start to finish without interruption.

I know other things made us what we are, musically speaking, but that was no small part of it.


agreed, sometimes it is just more convenient to use headphones
because do not disturb

Another nice Miser Mix... starting with Hello through Goodbye! A few I've never heard before.
The Maxell cover blew me away. I used their cassettes exclusively back in the day. I still have drawers full of them with my mix tapes.



Hello. Like others here... I'm an Alice fan. Thanks for saying Hello Hooray!
OK Go has always got my attention.
With lyrics like these... With regard to my newborn arachnid kids, brought you all here to discuss, as I must,
The fate of my children, the spiders.
Sounds like a topic for the "What's the Meaning of This" forum page.  


The Beatles influenced section was the best for me. Kaaltu was new to me. I like them. Of course, Apples in Stereo are all over my playlist. Love the psychedelic sound from them!
I have nine Cotton Mather songs on my playlist. I discovered them a few years back. One of my favorites on the mix.

The Bacharack section was also good for my ears. 2/3's Dionne Warwick greatest hits! I really like the Dan Kibler version the best.

Sssssmooooth  Dang, Lounge Jazz. Liked Ricki's rendition of that Dan classic.

Mr. Miller. As others mentioned, Steve Miller is up there on my list of favorites. Especially his San Francisco (hippie) style from '68- '73.

Goodbye. Nice Thomas Dolby one. One you don't hear often. I've heard that Reed Foehl song someplace before... Oh yeah! It's a R. Paradise classic!

I'm glad you clarified your not saying goodbye literally!
Good stuff you complied here for us.
Thank you for your work in entertaining us.

Headphones Only - June 2022
launched today. I use media mail, so it's cheaper ($3.19 per unit instead of $5) and slower. ETA should be the 29th.
Hope you enjoy!

Very much enjoyed, especially - of course - the Alice. Has always been a fave of mine.
Nicely done on the Beatles/not Beatles. That's a Klaatu tune I don't remember. I used to have their first album, but it's long gone.
I have a hard time loving anything that's not the original version of the Burt tunes. Remember that he wrote the music, so if all that's left is the lyrics it's really a Hal David tune.
Hadn't heard the Rickie Dan before. Noice.
And I, too, am a Steve Miller fan. (Fave memory, a guitarist I worked with mocked the opening of Abracadabra and we called him on it, so he picked up his guitar and without prompting played it perfectly for us. We were in awe.)
And that H&O is from my favorite album of theirs, which they seem to be breaking out in force now during live shows, actually doing the title tune. And Oates singing his pedophile song (!) "ain't no use resisting / it's the cradle thief insisting..."

All in all - a very nice mix. Much thanx.

My original mix that I've been planning in my mind for the last year had to be put on hold due to some technical problems. I'm hoping to have it solved in time for the October Miser release. Since I'm always adding ingredients to my ever evolving Mini Miser stew I thought I'd stick with that format once again. 
Hello & Goodbye had been looking for some other subjects to transition nicely.  I thought it was as good a time as any to throw the Beatles thing in fresh off of Miami's Bealesque disc. The Bacharach idea came from a lyric in Lazy's latest Shine issue. Threw some jazzy sounding stuff in, with a cool Dan cover for our newest members' enjoyment. I wasn't planning on Steve Miller but I wasn't happy with how Hot Chili was working out so I figured, why not throw some more in. I haven't listened to him in awhile anyway. 
Credit as always for the artwork from my lovely bride (Yes, ColdMiser took the plunge this past April!)

Someone who likes Alice Cooper as much as I do really should listen to it more often. Thanks for the excuse! Even in my teenage obsessive days I neglected the glitzier numbers like Hello, Hooray. The OK Go was a nice surprise; I tend to think of them as clever videographers more than musicians and it's nice to be reminded that there's some depth there.

The Beatles suite nailed it. Well chosen.

I didn't hear anything I didn't like in the middle but Ricky Lee Jones did an excellent job with a Steely Dan song. I can even understand the lyrics!

Haven't listened to Steve Miller since he went off the rails a while back but it's nice to be reminded why I liked him in the first place.

The last section was all new to me, and all worth getting to know. I owe you a beer!

Pro tip: you can make little ones out of big ones by cutting them up, folding, and taping the edges.
Or just send the ones sent to you back.

solid favs from the past: alice cooper, steve miller, h&o, etc
new to me: ok go, cotton mather, everyone on the be bach slice and reed foehl
ok go and cotton mather were ear worms {#Music}
you're still delivering on the mini miser meme {#High-five}

but this caught my attention: Credit as always for the artwork from my lovely bride (Yes, ColdMiser took the plunge this past April!)

congrats! and please give your lovely bride my best {#Cheers}

I liked this disc end to end. Great transitions, some nice surprises, and some artists that don't get a lot of respect got a chance to shine.

Really rockin' the mini-theme. Bravo!
