Program Description: In a world where the Earth is allegedly whizzing through the universe at speeds exceeding 400,000 mph, there is still a place that you can go where the Earth is stationary. That place is right here on Hollow Earth Radio in the Konspiracy Korner, 9pm Thursdays. Over time, the ‘Moving Earth’ hoax and many other hoaxes will be examined while listening to experimental and psychedelic noise music from far and near. Also, fun with loops…

For years, doctors have been trying to figure out a way to achieve the benefits of classic lobotomy operations, without the hassle and messiness of brain surgery. Fortunately, technology has finally given us the solution. With the Holosync series of CDs, you can now achieve 100% complacency WITHOUT surgery or drugs of any kind. Previously, this level of complacency was only achievable through messy lobotomy operations and/or prescription drugs. But now, thanks to Holosync, the only requirement is that you listen to these freaky sounding CDs for a few hours per week. The discs are carefully designed to alter brain functions, just like a lobotomy!
The CD that I am reviewing here is actually just a promotional disc. It was given to me by my friend (Walter), and it contains many testimonials from VERY MELLOW customers who have achieved amazing results using Holosync. These Holosync users are TOTALLY MELLOW. They are no longer bothered by any of the problems going on in the world: The official 9-11 story has been proved to be absurd? Who cares? With these discs, certainly not you. Our country is controlled by a network of criminals? So what? No longer will you be stressed out about these matters.
If you’ve been thinking about getting a lobotomy for yourself or for a loved one, but are squeamish about the idea of brain surgery, I recommend that you give Holosync a try, ASAP. You and your loved ones are wasting precious energy fretting about 9-11 and other world issues. Let the professionals worry about that stuff. You’ve got a mellow life to live. Now go out and live it with Holosync!

Derek M. Johnson - Thursday, September 29th, 8:00 - 11:00 PM @ Hollow Earth Radio
Derek M. Johnson will be playing live on air at Hollow Earth Radio this week on Thursday, September 29th from 8 pm to 11 pm for Derek's CD Release party. Come on by to Hollow Earth and see Derek M. Johnson perform with Serena Tideman and Foxdye.
Derek M. Johnson is a musician and visual artist from Olympia. Johnson plays the acoustic/electric cello in a non-traditional and improvisational setting. Johnson has worked with numerous musicians during his career and has appeared on several recordings. This record release is his first ever solo record with Aphonia Recordings and is a highly anticipated album. Johnson will be playing his record live at Hollow Earth. This is a must see!
Serena Tideman is from Port Townsend and is a fantastic composer and cellist. She'll be joining Johnson on one of his tunes and will be playing her solo stuff.
Foxdye is from Portland. Foxdye has made a great remix of the first track of Derek M. Johnson's debut record with lots of heavy fast beats and will be playing her solo stuff as well. Foxdye's performances involve a lot of humor and fun.
Smooth Sailing, Sex with Strangers, the Cold Ground, and Boogie Monster - Friday, September 30th, 10:00 PM @ Jewelbox Theatre, Rendezvous
Friday, September 30th, for your enjoyment, Vancouver art rockers Boogie Monster will be appearing at the intimate Jewelbox Theatre in Belltown for a sure-to-be electrifying set of epic riffs, melodic washes of squelch and feedback and an arsenal of thoughtfully deployed fills and interludes (think Bhangra meets acid jazz coupled with the odd input from a zozzled Celtic jigmeister). The duo of guitarist Ben Fussel and drummer Tony Dallas put out their debut Zechimechi in May on Vancouver-based Needs More Ram and are now touring in support of said release.

Gonna start a new series of comics of pictures I take from live shows around Seattle.
Let's start with my stupid band My Printer Broke,
Now for a metal show I played with my other band,
Here are some of the other rad bands we played with!
And just last Thursday I went to Funny Button Fest, a day long festival in a house in the U-District. There was mayhem and it raged late into the night like a RAVE!

Of course you should go to BREAK-Fest and support Hollow Earth Radio, but should you eat breakfast? Today two Hollow Earth DJs square off on this contentious issue...
Breakfast: What is good for? Absolutely nothing.
An argument by Agnes Fidget.
Look, I like pancakes. I have even eaten waffles and a pig in a blanket or two. I am quite fond of the Waffle House establishment and the International House of Pancakes. But ultimately, breakfast is the ultimate in frippery when it comes to meals. My argument would be that lunch is far more important. In the morning, you wake up, and you don’t necessarily need to eat food, and if you do eat, it doesn’t have to be a giant meal of sausage and biscuits and bacon strips - in fact, an apple will do, or toast. You can get by even without these, if necessary. Don’t get me started on cereal, the ultimate incarnation of the nonsensical idea that breakfast is somehow necessary. Cereal was created by Big Business to make a mass amount of money off the little man by basically puffing up basic grains and pouring refined sugar over it. Count Chocula and Captain Crunch are particularly pernicious examples of the genre. Consider jam, the cornerstone of bread toppings - it is mere decoration. You don’t really need all of that fancy stuff on bread! Bread alone has all of the nutritional value you need.
Mr. Mellish suggests that lunch is ridiculous and that Subway is a telling example of what is wrong with lunch. Who else has done as much for the image of avocados as Subway? They have taken a woefully unloved vegetable and brought it to the masses.
That is my problem with the idea of breakfast - the notion of a ‘balanced breakfast’ is just an excuse to eat more bacon and pancakes. It is the ultimate in Western capitalist excess. You can skip it, and you will be okay. I know from experience that your stomach will get by despite being empty for a couple of hours because you overslept and you had to make the bus and you don’t have much money in the first place. So if you are going to go to Hollow Earth Radio’s Break-FEST, skip the pancakes and ask for a lunch, or even brunch. You don’t really need all of that delicious goodness, do you?
Breakfast: Fueling America
Counter-point by Fielding Mellish.
Agnes would have you believe breakfast is given a status of importance unbecoming of its actual value and utility, a needless addition to the modern individual’s busy routine. You know what else is a needless addition? The facile opinions on breakfast presented in this newsletter. By her.
As is commonly known, salted meats, fats and refined syrups are indispensable elements to any balanced diet. People need these key nutritional breakfast byproducts to make it through their dreary workaday lives because, otherwise, lunch would be the only meal on an already bleak horizon. And, as I will expand upon in the next paragraph, lunch is the Ghostbusters 2 of meals - inevitable and deeply disappointing.
Take, for example, Subway, the ever popular chain of submarine sandwich restaurants. I know very few people that would willingly submit to their perverted take on the “sand wich,” yet locations pop up left and right. Why does this persist? Quite simple, really: subconsciously people understand the vapidity of lunch and, in an effort to amplify and reinforce the inherent awesomeness of breakfast, they submit themselves to lunch, if only to stimulate the anticipation for tomorrow morning’s food offering. In fact, many people even put themselves to bed early just so they can eat breakfast in a timely fashion come morning.
Therefore, because breakfast is indeed the meal nonpareil, we at Hollow Earth Radio have organized the wonderful Break-Fest for our loyal and supportive listeners because they deserve only the best. Breakfast, after all, is optimistic. Breakfast is creative. Breakfast can also be strangely erotic, for some reason. THE POINT BEING, Agnes is once again coming down on the wrong side of this argument and if you happen to be sitting next to her at Break-Fest, feel free to nick some cash from her pocketbook and generously donate it to Hollow Earth in your name.

At 2pm, the doors of my house will open. The community will received for a festival- the best single-day festival in Seattle to date- and tithe a small undisclosed donation that will go to support two bands that are going on a national tour of the USA: Mega Bog + Kusikia.
This house fest is called "Funny Button Fest" and showcases bands coming from between Portland, OR and Anacortes, WA- maybe even Vancouver, BC but if not, however, it is confirmed that there will be Canadian friends coming down to attend. There's also a few other out of state musicians including a cool lady funk-guitar player from South Dakota performing, "Amanda Conway". She played guitar in a birthday-jam on my birthday and it was spot-on.
If you live within the neighborhood, the University District, you should come. If you live anywhere in Seattle, you should come. Really- the curation of today represents a majority of underrepresented artists and musicians in and outside of Seattle's burgeoning and eclectic music scene along with bands that get more frequent play. If you know what I'm talking about and subscribe to the circuit I speak of, you might very well be wondering who the majority of these bands are.
They are magic.
There will be a secret café to help raise money for Mega Bog and Kusikia. Sets will happen in twenty-minute intervals in different rooms of the house, throughout the day in accordance with the following schedule:
- 3:00 SANDY CITY / GARAGE
- 3:20 AMANDA CONWAY (South Dakota) / IN THE BACKYARD
- 3:40 LOSING LIES / GARAGE
- 4:00 LEXI LEE / BACKYARD
