fist of the tripping monk

diary of a subversive monk.

Rediscovering self from a bygone era. I guess the melodrama was real 10 years ago. You can almost taste the angst. #tbt #darkdays #melancholia #gangsterballad #tripmaster #12bit #emax #beats #diaryofasadman #happydays #goodtimes #candycanesandunicorns #rainbowsandballoons

Mystery Russian OST, 1978. Beautiful wistful melody? Check. Heavy drums? Check. Dark basslines? Check. I think we have a winner. This one’s definitely a keeper. #Lp #records #ditc #dustyfingers #samplerporn #russia #melodiya


Dicran Jamgochian - Armenia’s Violin Ensemble Jazz Orchestra: This record is a trip. It starts out sounding like your standard ethnic/traditional Armenian folk record, then the B-side hits you out of nowhere with this funky ass groove from left field. Score! Hooray for obscure Armenian jazz funk! #Lp #records #ditc #dustyfingers #raregroove #breaks #samplerporn #armenia


Mystery Russian LP. This one kinda has a Los Angeles Negros vibe. Good old romantic ballad funk. #ditc #Lp #balada #gangsterballad #samplerporn #melodiya


Just came up on a collection of old rare Russian and Armenian jazz/private pressings. Craigslist ftw! #Lp #records #ditc #dustyfingers #safetyfirst

my muse came to visit me last night for a brief, yet passion filled rendezvous. and as always, she was gone by morning. she likes to come and go on her own accord, with no consideration to my needs. she is actually more like my mistress, that filthy slut. and yet, like a sucker i eagerly await her next visit in anticipation…
