Rock ‘n Roll to the bone!

Music! I’m pretty sure I’ve never spent a single day of my life without listening to it. In fact, even now that I’m writing I’m listening to some good tunes. Music is always there, ready to cheer you up. Afterall it has always been said that music is the language of feeling and of passion, as words are the language of reason.

However, there was a time in Russia where music was banned, of course not all genres, just the most “wild” ones: Rock and Roll and Jazz.

During the 50s some ingenious Russians began recording banned bootlegged jazz, boogie woogie and rock ‘n’ roll on exposed X-ray film. The thick radiographs would be cut into discs of 23 to 25 centimeters in diameter; sometimes the records weren’t circular. But the exact shape didn’t matter so much, as long as the thing played.

Haunting: Witches and Ghosts

While I’m working on my new post and doing a lot of research about the next topic I’m going to write about, I decided to relax my brain for a little bit and indulge myself by creating a playlist on 8tracks. I found myself to be a southern gothic “fan” and as I’m listening to a lot of this kind of music most of the playlist has this vibe, but you will find few surprises as well! ENJOY IT!
