road trip usa

One area in which the USA has unquestionably excelled for over two hundred years has been it's series of interwoven paved roads designed for ground transportation. one are in which both psychedelically inclined hippies and misinformed fools from the early 90's have unquestionably excelled at is trippin'. here, king brian of the omelet unites the two worlds over twenty-two carefully selected tracks for your next interstate journey.

the dog in this photo wishes he was resting on the warm and inviting lap of The Omelet's own Ben Stein. Instead, old yeller gets to hang out with this bland credit score peddling curmudgeon. Fortunately, we've all been treated to an introductory compilation from the REAL ben stein that you can download below.

'me so sorry

for eons, racist musicians have directly expressed their views through their material. for eons, asian people from all countries in the region have embraced the usage of gongs. with the help of dana and brian, finally, the two have achieved symbiosis.

Shake Your Groove Thang

Kristin Smith is a woman of many talents. Croquet, Bocce Ball and some of the wittiest emails writings you will ever receive. Some things you may not know about her include: her love of southern indian food, she pronounces "Bill" like "Belle" and her deep, driven, unwavering love for DISCO.

Kristin's Disco Freak Out Dance Party! Mix lifted the club to its highest highs (after one of the lowest lows) and got everyone boppin in their chairs. Especially Diana Won and Todd Stolarski. Although you probably couldn't stop those kids from boppin to most anything with a beat if you tried. A FUNKALICIOUS BEAT.


All Things Go, All Things Go.

CD Club spanned the emotional rainbow today you guys. Here is my sad bastard mix for all to enjoy. Or cry sadly in your car to.

Hold Me Now

My first contribution to the face omelet blog and it is basically just going to be photos of things that don't really feature cds. Or music. But really just the adorableness of our special guest: ROSIE!

I think my favourite part is tied for when Di got to hold her and subsequently started repeating "I WILL NEVER LET YOU GO!! I WILL NEVER LET YOU GO!" Or when Sauce picked her up and immediately gave us all the picture dictionary example of happiness:


an era of the music industry died today along with the king of pop. folks here at the omelet, along with scores across the globe are mourning the unexpected loss. thankfully, he left an indelible imprint behind. goodnight sweet prince.
a nice number from a young Ed from his album "What Do yYou Want to be When You Grow Up?", it's almost like he's telling us an important message now that he's up on the couch with Johnny. Listen here

the king is dead. long live the king.

the archive

Paul Mawhinney was born and raised in Pittsburgh. Over the years he has amassed what has become the world's largest record collection. Due to health issues and a struggling record industry Paul is being forced to sell his collection. This is the story of a man and his records.

editor's note: please watch with caution. immediately upon completion, i began throwing money at vinyl in all directions; culminating with the purchase of this forthcoming spectral sound white label from audion aka matthew dear.

Just so you are aware...of the exciting things happening in music currently.

I thought I'd post this little ditty by one Olle Hemmingsson, and his little trio, well actually it's a quartet, but one of the members happens to be his old, trusty tractor. Just for the record this scandanavian claims it keeps better time than half the drummers he's played with, which is two. Just a is a little slice of current rural musical life for all the face omeleteers!

All The best-

To Pointe Eau

we're all growns up now. no more sippy cups and strollers for us. although nothing truly earth-shattering has happened to our web baby, here are the highlights:

  1. brand spanking new sexy smooth layout
  2. commenting bug has been fixed
  3. blogroll added - i pilfered through our members' listed pages. feel free to leave a comment with a blog you'd like to see added or removed
  4. proper photo citation

to celebrate these monumental technological leaps, and our upcoming meeting , i've uploaded a lost gem from our rich archives. check the previous post for jay edwards' mush mouth compilation. now, just brian's initial guilty pleasure's disc needs to be added to complete our digital collection. very exciting.

mush mouth

The proud man in the photo above is most certainly not the President of Face Omelet's Atlanta Wing, Jay Edwards. This gem of a gent is Cleveland legend "Mushmouth" Mariano Pachetti. In the 70's, he dominated the sport of competitive pizza eating. A regular on "The Hoolihan & Big Chuck Show," he displayed the uncanny skill to devour a pie in minutes. For this comp, our very own Jay Edwards shows us this ability translated to the world of compact discs.

dana & brian go to oz

two of our very own touched down in sarah's motherland to spread the good word of face omelet...and hang with fun comic book folks. along they way, they encountered punky girl bands and a koala bear named barnacle. sadly, only one of those is included here in their nod to all things down under.

freaks, faggots, drunks, & junkies

it's difficult to tell whether jake's intention here was to highlight some of the more socially transgressive artists of our time or if he was simply just trying to make a commentary about his friends. one thing is for certain; it's destined to remain one of life's greatest mysteries.

desperate to impress

sarah enjoys making mix cds and shooting photographs. both are showcased within this post. on her introductory disc she impresses us all with foam dinosaurs, japanese stationary stickers, duct tape, and, most of all, her wide ranging musical selections.

tripping with sauce

jake and sauce decide to take a psychedelic trip. looking to temporarily lose their minds; they instead permanently lose their innocence. this life altering event is now forever immortalized over a span of twelve tracks that dive deep into the ambient abyss.

va - cd club march compiled by dana snyder

undoubtedly the most schizophrenically eclectic introductory offering, dana delivers everything from praise filled american standard bathtub jingles to a western electric training guide for comprehending black americans...all served with a side of a decades old recording of a coney island freak-show barker doing his thing. shockingly, there's music too. lancelot layne and taj mahal bring things to a head just before dana as dana sits down with american screen legend burt reynolds for an insightful one-on-one interview. mr. reynolds, himself, wraps up the disc with a controversial gem of a track entitled "she's taken a gentle lover". burt may be interested to know that the above photograph could prove to be hard evidence as to why she may have done exactly just that.

harold and maude: old women & the young men who appreciate them

working with the loose concept of the 1971 film of the same name as his theme, jake crafts a harmonic love letter to sarah that simultaneously covers twenty tracks and the entire gamut of the musical spectrum.

embracing technology

after briefly discussing this idea at saturday's meeting, i decided to knock it out. all details are explained in the email that most likely lead you here. at such a rapid rate of online growth, our website will surely be worth millions of theoretical internet dollars in merely a matter of weeks.
