Notes: To tell the truth, I'm not sure what's going on with this record or why it exists but I will attempt to piece it together in these liner notes. Let's go! So, right off the bat, this is clearly my longest album to date, time-wise, clocking in at over 27 hours. And it certainly has something to do with this blog: 64666.blogspot.com. The basic gist being, if I ran at least six miles for 666 days, I would run a shit ton of miles (5,000 or so, AKA: "64666"). So what does that have to do with music? Well, I would film these runs with a makeshift camera belt that held my old iPhone. Later, I would add a soundtrack to the super-compressed video files (I had to download a camera app which allowed me to take movies at a really shitty resolution or else I would run out of space). These soundtracks, which comprise the 60 tracks found here, are–for the most part–short compositions (1-3 minutes) slowed down to fit the length of each run movie. On days I didn't run, I usually just recorded a quick sub-1-minute tune to symbolize my laziness. The 'music videos' for each song (FML) can all be found on that blog. There are also Vimeo links to each vid on the individual track pages at bandcamp (along with a still from said vid). From a musical standpoint, the result is a set of borderline unlistenable drones. The meat and potatoes of this abandoned project is that 64666 blog. Looking at it now, I'm semi-amazed I wrote so much about each run. Plus, the video rendering/editing was a LOT of work, for what, in hindsight, seems like a fairly shitty payoff. A new (even worse?) version of this project continued with TVHG068: 5,000 Anthems. I do not recommend. Buy it now on Media CDR for only $8 and get a mystery gift + free custom song written just for you. -VH
