Hi Dr. Carmilla,


Can you give us a little background info on your new tune?  What was the inspiration for it and how does it fit into your view of dieselpunk?

Comment by Dr. Carmilla on December 23, 2010 at 8:27pm

First of my music tracks now up on Reverb Nation. The next number is more folk/surf/jazz/enka influenced too. Would really love to be added to the playlist, if you guys are still interested (especially as it's dieselpunk cabaret)!

Sorry Wes!   Yesterday's comment is in reference to an October comment you made, I think in reference to one of mine.   I'm still new to the site and learning how to post

To Wes Mortega: I'm feeling ya dude.   I lost my job as a community organizer to a supposed fellow progressive who wanted a little too much control.   I am currently an environmental educator but only seasonally employed (that means no benefits and, by the way I have been rejected repeatedly by health insurance companies).  My wife has been unemployed for more than two years.  My point that even having worked in the hood, seen all sorts of corruption violence and despair,there is a point where you gotta embrace the positive in life where you find it.  That's how people survived the 30's and 40's.   In many ways the 21st Century is a cakewalk in comparison to what they went through.  As Emma Goodman said "If I can't dance I don't want to be part of your revolution!!!".

Good choice on Song of the Century, Colin. But Tome is right. The problem with Green Day is their record company, who probably wouldn't allow for it. The band itself would probably be cool with it if they had their way. But they don't.

I'm working on some recordings, I'll see If I can come up with something suitable to add ! xxx

Hi Colin,

It can't be anything we don't have copyright permission to use. I haven't talked to Green Day's management before, so I don't know if I can pull that one off. As for VNV Nation, I'll just shoot an email to Ronan to see if it's cool with him. If you know how to contact the others you mentioned, let me know.

Just a quick list:
Green Day - Song of the Century
VNV Nation - Carbon
A song by Caro Emerald
The Ramblers - Wie is Loesje?
Here's a link for the last one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKLKGfM7aNc&feature=related

Kurtousy Kombat!

In which case, thank you.
No, I insist! Thank you!
I could never accept that, thank you!

And so on and so forth until the end of time.

No problem.

By suggesting new things and changes to the site, that makes you part of the staff too!

Thanks for your help.
Comment by Wesley R. Mortega on November 4, 2010 at 4:18pm
I appreciate very much the quick support of the staff.

Thank you.

Agreed. I have the setlists all speced out, then the system alphabetizes everything when the songs are uploaded. It takes me a bit to sort it out, and I must have missed "Mr. Pinstripe Suit." I've moved it down with the contemporary tunes at the end so it's not so out of place. I also shifted 10 Cents a Dance higher up with the slower BPM songs.

Thanks for the tips!
Comment by Wesley R. Mortega on November 3, 2010 at 6:11pm
Pardon me, a Big Bad Voodoo Daddy track. Not a Cherry Poppin' Daddies song.
Also, 'Ten Cents a Dance' - excellent choice, but doesn't fit w/ previous track.
I believe a mere clerical error is to blame.
Comment by Wesley R. Mortega on November 3, 2010 at 5:54pm
I've noticed that the track after 'Crazy In Love' is a Cherry Poppin' Daddies tune. I've yet to hear a song of theirs that isn't at least 40% jazz overkill, and this case in no exception. Hearing the smooth, deep voice of Billy Holiday and then a variety of screaming trumpets and saxophones is, unsettling, to say the least. May I suggest that that specific part of the playlist be more directly oriented, either to suit the high-octane modern 'swing' or to quietly nestle into the end of the playlist as did the original playlist from this past summer?

In 1941, the Ink Spots did a cover of the song "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire" originally written by Eddie Seiler, Sol Marcus, Bennie Benjamin and Eddie Durham.
Comment by Wesley R. Mortega on October 25, 2010 at 4:16pm
Does anyone here know who actually wrote "I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire"? I've heard it played by at least 4 different artists.
Comment by Wels on October 25, 2010 at 10:37am
@ Tome Wilson - Oh, didn't know that. I just joined last week or so ;)

I noticed the original version of IDWTSTWOF, pretty good as well.

Stay in touch
