Yule Be Merry

Yule Be Merry is the name of my patented Xmas mix.

Below is the version of "Yule Be Merry" that is simply my top 12 Xmas songs of all time:

Here is the more complete Spotify version: https://open.spotify.com/user/mixtressrae/playlist/0D4rnzPZSOa3gokkf3kj7H

My top three Christmas albums are:

She & Him // A Very She & Him Christmas (they have a new one out called "Christmas Party" that is really quite good)

Squirrel Nut Zippers // Christmas Caravan (skip the kinda-racist "Indian Giver")

Bing Crosby // Merry Christmas! (I grew up with this one and can't escape its charms, though we all now know what a probably terrible man the Bing was... #allmyfavesareproblematic)

I will also be playing some of my favorite Xmas songs on Friday December 9th's Mixtress Radio broadcast (press play on little yellow cassette at top right of this blog from 7-11pm CST Friday).

What's This Bitch Talking About? ep 11

Currently I am saving up to buy a Tascam TR-05 digital recording device that will allow me to record audio in better quality and in stereo/binaural for ASMR videos. If you'd like to contribute to this endeavor, here is the link: paypal.me/mixtressrae

What's This Bitch Talking About? ep 10



DISCLAIMER(s): This episode was recorded almost entirely after consuming approximately a bajillion calories in America's weird annual celebration of being assholes to natives that includes obscene amounts of food. In this episode, you will experience a range of incompetence including, but not limited to: walking while drunk talking about karaoke and generic "we-should-all-love-each-other" platitudes, laying in bed while drunk talking about white supremacy, reading lyrics aloud after pounding keyboard and accidental loud ads playing in background. The featured pop culture this week is the 1999 film "10 Things I Hate About You". The featured album is Tori Amos's "From the Choirgirl Hotel". The other featured album is Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" which is 25 today.

If you'd like to contribute to my creativity (which will be more coherent next week, because it HAS to be) here's a link: paypal.me/mixtressrae

What's This Bitch Talking About? ep 9



This episode contains a loooooooot of insufferable rambling about trying to figure out how to be a better human in a post-I-can't-believe-we-expect-Donald-Trump-to-govern-us America. As always, every sentiment is positively dripping with my characteristic delusions of optimism.

Sestra playlist is here: https://open.spotify.com/user/mixtressrae/playlist/0vKHv3AjdDNNjUWIe5xtwt

Album of the night is Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions' "Until the Hunter"

Podcast Episode 8: Stay Nasty, children



This episode sees me go through the stages of grief after a bewildering week. It's largely positive and delusional, so if that's what you need right now, feel free to give a listen.

*Animal Crossing New Leaf
*Why some minorities are voting for a presidential candidate that will NEVER care about them.
*Orphan Black
*25 year anniversary of My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless"
*Mixtress Rae's Top 10 songs discovered/re-discovered in 2016

I apologize that it has taken until Sunday evening to get this episode up. For purposes of future, let's just say the podcast from the previous Friday's radio show will always be up by Monday morning. Sometimes it will be available as early as Saturday morning, but wee hours of morning Monday will be worst case scenario, one hopes. So if you listen to Mixtress Radio Fridays from 7-11pm CST, you'll get a possible 48 hour jump on the content of the podcast. Ooh!

Tascam DR-05


Pictured, you will see a little voice recording device that will make my podcast/radio show/YouTube channel sound better!!

This device will be so so cool because of the following reasons:

1. It's very portable: runs on batteries or USB so I can use it wherever I am/whenever the mood strikes to record stuff for my podcast/radio show.
2. It has left and right channels so I can record in stereo for my YouTube ASMR channel with the option to record in mono for radio/podcast purposes. In other words, it will be my microphone for all my creative endeavors!
3. It records onto an included microSD card, so my audio files will no longer take up space on my phone. This will also make it easier for me to manage the files.
4. Sound quality will be MUCH better than recording with my iPhone's microphone, which is what I do now. This has several options for sound quality and there won't be any distracting sounds of me looking things up on my phone while recording and messing with touch screens and buttons.

In order for me to acquire said recording device, I will need your help. It's about $80. I've already raised $25!! If you'd like to help me out, I would be so so soooo grateful!! paypal.me/mixtressrae
