No Banana for You

Oct 04 2014

Posted by:

Travellers from Thailand always want the damn chocolate banana crepes. These were much better. All curry, greasy, eggy goodness. What more could you want, besides a camera operator that knows how to use the manual focus.

Kengtung was our first stop on our overland travel from Chiangmai in Thailand to Mongla in Special Region 4.

Doconut

May 22 2014

What’s the name of that one cartoon character that loves doughnuts? He always goes on about how good they are by exclaiming a series of ms. That guy would have loved these. The sweetness is overpowering but I’m starting to get a handle on sugar filled pastries. Such a more intense hit than the hidden sugar molecules found in western treats.
Below is an exerpt from a conversation I heard:
“Fuck it. Let’s just put in a bunch of raw sugar.”
“Should we mix it in?”
“Nope. Just put it in there to cover the dried shaved coconut.”

But man oh man did they ever do it with love for such vulgar dudes. Myanmar is a magical place.

Burmese Blunts

May 15 2014

The cheroot, possibly the greatest name for a smokable substance perhaps second to the bidi. A permanent fixture in Myanmar. The Myanma men seem to prefer cigarettes over cheroots but search around the internet and you’ll see badass pictures of older women putting Snoop Dogg to shame with these lovely creations. The factory precision of this woman is shocking. The smoke itself is surprisingly flavourful and a little sweet. It consists of leaf and woody bits from the root of the plant. Apparently it’s used to freshen the mouth…not surprising in a country of dental disaster due to the glorious betel nut.

Burmese Noodles

Well well well…these days this site should be called ABaum’s Glorious SetSubSet Wonderland Supreme. I’m bringing viruses and everything all up in here with some hits from videos that take 2 years to get noticed. What’s it like to be an internet sensation? Well it’s been nice but that’s over now. Now that it’s over, we can focus on what’s real. Also maybe I’ll actually make posts. Here’s one from Mandalay.

Old Guy Music

Jan 09 2014

Posted by:

Well hello folks,

As promised it was a very special year. And it’s come full circle as we end the year’s Vacation Mystery Hour with the final segment. Who knows what will come in the future. In 2 days it seems I’ll be disappearing into the wilds of Northern Myanmar to socialize with exotic animal poachers and smugglers. Not my ideal choice of company but my travelling companion will more than make up for that. It appears to be an expensive trip as it stands. We’ll see how the old pochette livre holds up.

Here we have a reminisce of about 10 months ago combined with a few new tidbits. My time in Shangrila is interspersed with memories of my youth and present. I hope you enjoy.

Featuring:
Socialized children
A peeping tom’s ears: music from an old person’s workshop
Chinese Furniture Review 1
Guangchang Dance Indecision
Travelbuzzkill ABaum Ruins the Day Again
Comedy Break
A Trip to the Spa
Quincey Enok – Ugly World
A Quiet Ending


See you all next season.

Confusing Times

Oct 08 2013

Posted by:

Our dear hero, me, is suffering from age-related issues. Mostly remembering where I am in the VMH Podcast world but that’s never really mattered much anyway. What we have here is a pleasant selection of bits and bobs for you to peruse. We hear of ancient battles, and get a bit more of a glimpse in the the crazy past/future world of the present as it was. Come. Enjoy.

Special prizes this week go out to those of you who can tell me what special recording method I used on the song. You’ll know the one. If you don’t, you lose automatically. If you do, maybe you’ll get the prize.

Featuring:
Pheromoans – Kevin Costner’s Best
Peter Jefferies – Chain or Reaction
Wooden Wand – The Forgiveness Factory

And a very special sudden ending…

More to come.

Dearest Fans

Sep 24 2013

I bid you a sweet hello. The time apart has been vicious. The times we have now, so dear. I believe that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Looking sly with a bit of curl
Not a curl more a wave
That your hand, surely gave
So unattractive, yet not attractive (more…)

Heavy Weights

Posted by:

Good evening, everyone.

I trust you’re doing well. Here we have the latest in a saga of radio plays. Remember, listener submissions are always welcome.

This riveting tale of romance and bodybuilding brings us into the heart of the soulless box that is the gym, a place to vacate and submit to endless routine.

As we all know, lifting weights for no man, so let’s join our hero…

The Vacation Begins

May 16 2013

Posted by:

Good evening. I hope you’re all well and good. In this episode, we seem to skip an episode. Why is that? Did I overlook? I haven’t a clue but I’m sure I’ll get to the bottom of it one day. Perhaps what was missed will be found again or perhaps it was just missed. At any rate, here we find Episode 3 of Season 6 of ABaum’s Vinyl Mystery Hour. It’s the Vacation series. In this series, I planned to do a little time travel. It is relatively successful and I hope you enjoy. I’m off for the weekend to a far off locale. I hope that you make time in your busy day for such lovely things as a calming glimpse in to the world of vacation.

In this very special episode we can hear:
Quincey’s Queer – Sunshine Today
Sandwich – Assisted Living
B-Lines – Social Retard

All this paired with harrowing tales of diving, skullduggery and a sentimental promotion of wedded bliss between two beautiful people.

Enjoy!
