While this video only takes three and a half minutes, the actual sign took several days to make. Victoria Estok and Kyle Hittmeier helped along the way – Kyle can be seen painting, Victoria is more elusive. The soundtrack is from some old friends from California, specifically: The Steady Ups and Doctor Echo’s Dub Disaster album, which is one of my favorites. Worth every penny and more.

How To: Get a vector file from your computer onto an 8×4 foot sheet of plywood

All of this is basically in the video, but here it is again. The design was originally a vector file. I made the printout on a large-format copier at the local chain store copy shop for about 8 dollars. Then used a light coat of spray mount to attach it temporarily to the wood. Then I followed the cuts with a good blade in the jig saw, and drilled where the circles were. Before removing the paper I drew a line over the printed line with a pen to leave an indentation on the wood. Lighting this from the side with a small flashlight, I could then trace over the indentations directly onto the wood with pencil. As I did this I removed the paper. Using the re-positionable spray mount means there is no residue of paper or adhesive.

If you have any specific questions, let me know.

This mix is of epic proportions – some might even say (in a bellowing and echoing voice) a “Mega-Mix P-P-Power Jam.” 28 tracks and over 2 hours! Some fffffat mixes may have better transitions, be more consistent genre-wise, hell – even have songs you like better. But I’ll tell you this, none are longer. …and if they are, they did it to spite me.

I combed the earth and the internet for 365 days for y’all and this is the result. You got your ancient rock songs, hillbilly country, early reggae, ethiopian jazz, hendrix samples, and drunk Tracy Morgan. And that’s just the tip of the iceburg.

Listen using the still great OpenTape player just a link away on my site or download the whole thing as a TGZ!! (yeah .tgz, who’s more punk rock now?)

If you like this, you’ll probably like the Tremendous Jamz of 2008 and the Tremendous Jamz of 2007 as well. If you don’t like it, by all means get in touch with an otologist.

All the best in 2010. I got a feeling it’s gonna be a good one.
