Just finished my first muxtape. Quite fun...now I'm off to the gym to listen to the tunes. Oh, and thanks to yesterday's American Routes, for turning my back on to the great and quirky Roseanne Cash album, Seven Year Itch.

Time lapse of Vikings Packers game

Body:

I'm not a huge football fan but do love a good time lapse. This video of a Vikings-Packers game compresses 1,194 still images over six hours into two minutes.

I especially enjoy seeing how the cleanup crew picks through the stadium at the end of the video.

Os Mutantes' commercials for Shell oil

Check out these weird commercials made for Shell oil by psychedelic Brazilian group Os Mutantes in the 60s. They look like something Alejandro Jodorowsky would have dreamed.

George Gimarc on the demise of the record store

Body:

Great profile of radio personality, George Gimarc. George Gimarc was a big part of helping me discover cool music growing up in Dallas. I stumbled across these posts about him because I've been looking for a track list of his great Christmas show that he used to do on KDGE in Dallas. If anyone knows where to find that let me know!

That profile lead me to this great video as well.

You gotta check out the moment in this video when Bill (of Dallas institution, Bill's Records and Tapes) talks about how people love vinyl..."they like it real good." Warms my heart.
