I just came to kick ass and slice loaves, and I’m all outta loaves to slice, muthafucka. Already cured cancer, too. Not really. Someone should, though. Shit fuckin’ sucks. Anyway, hi again! Emo-fuckin’-clew to the Lo-Fi Beats to Study, Game, Chill, Hop Hiply, Loaf, Slice Loaves and Cure Cancer To Edition! So, naturally by that obnoxiously long title, you can tell we’re in for several full hours of Zimbabwean surfgrindducksteppolkacore. Yojne!
No, wait, don’t yojne yet. I have more shit to say. Not MUCH more as I usually do though, so calm your fuckin’ tits. 5 of these tracks are making a return from the last lo-fi edition I did back in August, but I won’t tell you which ones ‘cause I’m a fuckhead. Nah, I just want you to be curious. If that makes me a fuckhead, then a fuckhead be I. Aside from those 5, these are ALL new tracks making their debuts on this podcast. As may have been clear by the title, this isn’t strictly just a lo-fi beats playlist. We’ve also got some lounge, chillhop, jazzhop, world, and breadcore to look forward to. Not really breadcore, as only demonic butter elves are privy to that. It’s crazy. It’s actually outside the humanly audible frequency spectrum. Damn fuckin’ butter elves, man, I swear…
Couple things I wanna mention:
1. I had some fun organizing the tracks this week. Take a gander (or a goose, if you prefer to keep fuckin’ toiling under the oppressive regime of the brutal goose patriarchy or some shit) at the track list and you’ll see what I mean. Honestly, I do that as much as I can each week, although I’m downright 100% fuckin’ certain that I’m the only one who gives 4/23rds of an ostrich turd about that shit. Hah! See what I did there? I’m a humorous person.
2. Please, PLEASE keep your ears wide open and peeled like fuckin’ grapes for toddlers for the Shinichi Osawa track called One Us. That one is fuckin’ magical to me.
3. Those of you perverts who may have listened to (maybe even… yojned) my other lo-fi beats edition may have noticed a number of tracks by an artist called Berry Weight. Listen, motherfuckers… I’ve been trying repeatedly since 20-fuckin’-10 to get someone to appreciate Berry Weight like I do. Please go check them out if you like the tracks you hear on this podcast. Leames and Inqiteka are also side-projects of theirs. I think they’re fuckin’ wonderful. When I got their album, “Music for Imaginary Movies,” back in 2010, I listened to that fucker on repeat at least fuckin’ 10 times. That never happens… let me repeat that: That. Never. Happens. Seriously, I fuckin’ love their stuff, and I know someone out there besides me does too. I’ll keep tryin’ ’til that someone emerges.
4. The track by Prophet & Architect may be a bit of a departure from the overall theme, but I think it fit well enough, and it’s my podcast, and you should listen to it and appreciate it like I do, bitch. I’m actually friends with one of the guys behind the project. I forget if he’s the Prophet or the Architect, but it’s pretty sweet stuff, and I think you’ll dig it.
All that said, let us commence with the starting of the beginning of the yojne!

Hi! Emoclew to the Just Make Me Feel Something Edition of Monday Morning Aural Sex! Why? Well, I appreciate your listening, and I wanted to emoclew you. Truth be told, I want to emoclew you all night long, baby…
Anyway, hi! As my more ardent perverts may know, these ambiguously named editions are pretty much just whatever as far as genres. Genres far and fuckin’ wide across the spectrum in this. As far as the title goes, that’s basically my approach to music in general: just make me feel something. Revulsion counts, by the way. That’s why I’ve included the 645AR track called, “4 Da Trap,” because it’s the most hilariously, outlandishly ridiculous thing I’ve heard in quite a while, and it needs to be shared much like Vitas’ song, “The 7th Element.” If you haven’t heard that track, treat yourself to a listen sometime. I won’t spoil it. The dude’s actually a fantastic singer, even though that particular song is hilariously bizarre. I can’t say the same for the former, however. He’s still a new discovery, though. There might be some notable talent lurking somewhere.
So, to expand further on the title, and as I mentioned in a previous edition, I tend to approach music being as emotionally blank as possible. I more often let the music determine my mood than vice versa, because that enables me to be more open to new sounds, perspectives, etc. That’s one of the main reasons I’m always finding new artists and tracks, along with not wanting to tire out old favorites. To be fair… there are a lot of artists in this edition that I already knew and have played before, but it’s pretty much all entirely new tracks this week. Anyway, I also wanted to make this edition since Valentine’s Day just happened, and Valentine’s Day is about feelings ’n’ shit, sooo… yeah.
Another way I approach music is that when I hear a song that doesn’t particularly appeal to me, I see it as an issue with myself rather than with the music itself. I see it as a deficiency in my own understanding and/or emotional capacity. Sure, I have plenty of legitimate reasons for disliking certain things. However, there are a few genres, sub-genres, specific songs and such for which I have yet to find a taste, and it’s not necessarily the fault of those things themselves or the people who like them. I just crave something else or more than what those genres, sub-genres and/or specific songs tend to deliver. That’s why a lot of pop music (including pop country and mainstream rap) leaves me cold. I want more than that stuff typically gives me.
Not to say I’m so advanced or any such bullshit like that. I don’t condemn or condescend to anyone for their tastes in music; not anymore, at least. I’ve had to unlearn a lot of counterproductive and downright destructive psychosocial habits instilled in me over the years. I’ve even stopped ragging on Disturbed, because I saw a really rather socially-conscious video of theirs talking about mental illness, addiction and suicide. I realized that for whatever reason, some people really find comfort in their music. I can’t relate, but I’m not going to shit on anyone’s comfort unless it seeks to diminish or destroy others’ or my own. I’m sure there are plenty of myopic Disturbed fans out there who criticize others for their tastes, but I’m not going to sink to that level. Not anymore. Shit, even Chad Kroeger of Nickelback somehow managed to endear himself to Devin Townsend of Strapping Young Lad. Neither Disturbed nor Nickelback will likely ever be played seriously on this podcast, though. Who knows? Stranger things have happened, but I’m not holding my fuckin’ breath either.
I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it’s profoundly fascinating to examine the psychology behind music and people’s tastes, especially my own. As far as I’m concerned, I think we should all appreciate (and even listen to) a vastly diverse array of music that coincides with our capacity for emotion. Obviously, nobody is happy all the time. Nobody is mad all the time. That’s why it boggles my mind that some people envelop themselves in one or two genres for so long. The human experience is indeed an emotional one, so I think we owe it to ourselves to explore and understand it as much as possible. I think it enables us to communicate with each other on far deeper levels. So much as I can tell, all music is an emotional expression of some sort. Most likely, every musician who felt compelled to disturb the equilibrium of air pressure with their music did so due to some emotion or another. Even the most minimalistic compositions have emotion. I’d say one exception to the rule would be music produced entirely by an artificial intelligence for whom the concept of emotion is foreign.
Another thing I think needs to be addressed, as my roommate Josh aptly reminded me, is the aspect of artist versus entertainment. Having interned at a pop music studio in Hollywood back in 2011, I gained some insight into the process (not to mention the egos) in that industry, and there are definitely some who are only in it for the money. Even that’s an emotion, however. It’s a horrendously ugly one that causes untold suffering across the world, but greed is indeed an emotion. There are a number of pop artists who have tracks with lyrical content beyond the ever-so-staggering depths of partying, fucking, falling in or out of love, etc. You know what I’m talking about. You probably know and love a few of those artists and tracks yourself. Shit, I even put a Lady Gaga track near the beginning of last week’s edition, and I remember that I considered her pretty bland when I first delved into her stuff. Finding out that she actually writes her music herself as opposed to many other pop artists was definitely a plus, but the tonality and lyrical content still left me cold. I’ve tried to re-sensitize myself to things I once considered mediocre because of that aforementioned sense of personal understanding and/or emotional capacity deficiency, and the process has gotten easier over time, but I most definitely used to be far more close-minded than I am now.
I remember back in 199-fuckin’-4 when I was watching Woodstock on Pay-Per-View, and I scoffed at Nine Inch Nails because - dumb little kid that I was - I thought that keyboards had no place in heavy metal. I was primarily into mainstream metal like Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden and such, and I felt like anything that didn’t coincide with that sound was just worthless. Mind you, before I discovered metal, I was into stuff like Vanilla Ice, Michael Jackson, and even Jefferson Starship when I was in pre-school and kindergarten. I used to rock the fuck out to We Built This City on my way to pre-school, and I’ve never really lost my enthusiasm for that track, despite it being cheesy as fuck as it is. Fuck you, I like cheese, okay? Except on Chinese food. Chinese food seems to have very little cheese involved at all. I dunno.
So, having established that most pop music tends to be representative of a more superficial experience of emotion, the goal then becomes to go deeper. Go deeper into euphoria, rage, despair, etc. The problem with that is just that even far beyond pop, a lot of music just doesn’t go particularly far into those things. It’s emotional, sure, but the emotions are typically expressed in pretty mediocre ways. Yet, that’s not even a bad thing! There’s plenty of excellent music that doesn’t serve that purpose. There’s plenty of stuff that’s great for just shutting off your brain for a little while, and that stuff has merit just as much as the most objectively fulfilling compositions in existence. Because of that, I can’t logically condemn or condescend to anyone for liking pop, country, mainstream rap, salsa, etc. That, and I just don’t want to be a dick. The world’s got plenty of that shit to go the fuck around and off a goddamn cliff.
I say that elitism needs to fuck off forever. Your experience of music and emotion isn’t superior to anyone else’s; it’s just different. Country music fans aren’t blithering morons for liking what they like. It’d be awesome to see them dig deeper into music as a whole, but even if they never do, I’m no one to condemn or condescend to anyone, and neither are you. Shit, as someone who greatly enjoys Insane Clown Posse, I know how quick people are to judge others for their tastes. Unfortunately, a lot of that comes from the experiences with certain fans. There are shitty people everywhere, though. There are shitty fans of every genre that give others bad names, and I think that ought to be considered before rushing to any judgments. Right, like that’s going to happen. One fuckhead podcaster is going to change the world with his opinions, right? I know.
The biggest lament that I have is just that so many people seem to be completely content with whatever terrestrial radio stations spit out between blocks of commercials. There are entire oceans of amazing stuff out there just waiting to be explored, but many people seem content to just play in the puddles. That’s one of the reasons why I cherish communication so much. I want to communicate as effectively as possible in an effort to inspire people to live more fulfilling lives, full of discoveries that blow their fuckin’ minds, if only they could find it in themselves to be a little more curious. Even simply branching out in genres with which they’re downright nauseatingly familiar (in terms of the span of time, not the scope) can be so rewarding. I don’t know. I just know we can all do better. We can all be living more fulfilling lives, and sometimes the ways we can enhance our lives require damn near minimal effort of us. Frankly, I think it’s more taxing and generally difficult to avoid emotion than it is to feel and try to understand it. When we put in that effort, we can communicate more effectively, and communication is what makes or breaks humanity. It’s the purpose of language itself, and music too, for that matter.
Speaking of music, let me try to wrap this fuckin’ novel up already so we can proceed the yojnement. Couple things I want to mention:
1. The Cheap Trick song, “Mighty Wings,” is epic as fuck and it might melt your face off, so watch out.
2. AG’s song, “Terrible Thing,” is there because of the Sabrina show on Netflix. It plays during an awesome scene, and I won’t spoil it just in case that show happens to be unwatched in your list.
3. The John Dolmayan song, “Street Spirit,” is there because John’s the drummer for System of a Down! He’s coming out with a full length album sometime soon, but I’m pretty sure there’s only this one single for now. I hope you perverts already knew that, but I thought I’d clarify just in case.
4. Igorrr’s track, “Very Noise,” has an amazing music video. All their videos are amazing, frankly. I imagine most people might skip that group entirely, but I find them phenomenal. Maybe you will someday, too.
5. Prophets of Rage is a side-project that 3 out of 4 members of Rage Against The Machine put together with Chuck D of Public Enemy and B Real of Cyprus Hill on vocals, and they’re fucking awesome. I saw them in concert back in 2016, and what a fuckin’ show, man. If they ever come around again, definitely treat yourself to a ticket.
6. Lisa Miskovsky did the vocals for the theme to the video game Mirror’s Edge. That song’s called Still Alive, it’s one of my favorite video game songs of all time, and I just happened to stumble across this new collaboration of hers this week. So yeah, fuckin’ yojne that good and hard.
7. The Billie Eilish song is there because, well, I like it. I know that opinions fuckin’ abound about her, but I enjoyed the track when I heard it, so I included it. End of story.
8. Gymnopédie 1, even though I’m probably butchering the pronunciation, that’s there because it reminds me of a certain someone… Same goes for the Yestalgia song, “See You Tomorrow Sunshine.” So, ya know, hintity-fuckin’-hint-hint or whatever.
9. The songs, “Sway (Chainsmokers Remix),” and, “New York City (JayKode Remix),” are songs that I found through a pornographic rhythm game called Cock Hero. It truly is as thoroughly ridiculous as it sounds. Ask or Google it if you’re curious, because it’s really quite hilarious to behold. Kinda strange how the two I chose both had something to do with The Chainsmokers. Totally unintentional, and additionally, I’ve actually heard tracks that I’ve played on my podcasts in that series. Kind of amusing to have those songs reframed in such a context. Doing that sort of thing is excellent for weakening the impact of bad memories on certain songs, too. I know from experience.
Aaaaand with that, we now commence the holy ritual of yojneeeee…

What’s up, motherfuckerettes and motherfuckers?! Emo-fuckin’-clew to the second volume of the My Favorite Ladies Edition of (to the best of my knowledge) the only fuckin’ music podcast out there that keeps ya guessin’ from week to week, Monday Morning Aural Fuckin’ Sex! I felt like the second volume of this one would be appropriate considering Valentine’s Day is coming up, and while I’m obviously not skirting military orders to marry any of these particular ladies, I would still like to honor them in this ongoing, journalistic little podcast of mine. I think it’s pretty awesome anyone ever did that. Skirt military orders, I mean. Most people don’t give a fuck about podcasts at all, but it’s whatever. I’m just sayin’ it’s awesome that anyone ever felt so in love that they were willing to defy direct orders, probably deeply held vows, to marry the one they loved.
That’s assuming the story is historically accurate. Who even fuckin’ knows? Maybe it’s all bullshit and I’m misinformed. Still a pretty cool story though, bro. That love shit? I fucks wit it. Not so much these days, ‘cause it done been fuckin’ wit me a little too much over the past couple decades. Nah, I definitely appreciate and congratulate anyone in a monogamous, committed relationship. Mainly ‘cause I clearly have no idea how anyone does that anymore. The idea just seems like some phenomenally advanced scientific theory that will forever be out of my comprehension. I know relationships aren’t beds of roses either, fucking believe me.
I think it largely comes down to communication, the differences and/or the lack of, specifically. Seldom have I ever seen people willing to put in the effort to make sure they’re understood, to make sure they say what needs to be said. I imagine it’s too frightening to be that vulnerable for a lot of people. I don’t know. Maybe I’m overanalyzing monogamy itself. It seems like the longest, happiest relationships are the most simplistic. Not to say they’re boring, just more grounded, more pragmatic. I’m sure the answer lies somewhere in the grey, like so much else in life.
Any-fuckin’-way, I’m gonna stop rambling like a fish-banana now so we can get underway this yojne!

Good fuckin’ morning, perverted perverts of Pervertistan! Emo-fuckin’-clew to another installment of your and my favorite podcast, Monday Morning Aural Sex! This week is a brand new type of edition which I’ve oh-so-fucking-cleverly dubbed, “Don’t Funk With My Soul…” Can ya fuckin’ guess what kind of music we’ll be hearing? Hmm?! Can ya?!?!
That’s right, experimental, avant-garde, post-country-polka-step-wave-core from Zimbabwe! Funk and soul, definitely, but keep your fuckin’ peeled ears peeled for that whether it happens or not, because wow. That’d be fuckin’ amazing if anything ever existed that could be described thusly.
Anyway, I’m sure a number of these tracks could be considered, “typical white guy,” tracks, but fuck you. I wanted to throw in some classics for this inaugural new type of edition, so there they are. I’ve got lots of classic funk and soul mixed in with more modern stuff, and I’ve got quite a number of Beatles covers in here too. It’s actually kind of crazy how many funk and/or soul versions of Beatles songs I found.
In case you might be wondering why I’m making this type of edition, well first of all, that’s racist. Second, I actually listen to funk and soul all the fucking time. Literally, almost every rideshare passenger I get, I put on Ray Charles artist radio on Spotify. It’s actually been the most complimented stuff I’ve ever played during my rides, so I’ve stuck with it for at least a year now. Considering how often I’ve heard a few of these jams, you would think I’d be sick to death of them by now and wouldn’t ever want to do a podcast around these genres, but you’d obviously be fuckin’ wrong about that shit. Wouldn’t you?
It’s pretty astonishing how much staying power these artists have. I think part of it is simply because I don’t play the music loud during my rides, so it doesn’t stick in my head as prominently as it would otherwise. Also, I’m sure some of these tracks seem outside of the funk & soul genres and more like R&B, but it’s all related. It’s got a rich history, and any of you more ardent music history buff perverts might enjoy delving into it if you can spare a fuck or a shit.
Any-fuckin’-way, let us yojne before our nipples escape and form an alliance against us and make us their slaves to keep on display in intergalactic zoos for no pay. That’s not the American way! They wouldn’t let us eat hay, or lay by the bay, or make things out of clay, it just may…
