Operation Manatee #22: Nuthin At All

A pretty relaxed show for Chris and Cory as they play some new and old tracks from some artists that are probably pretty good, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Operation Manatee #21: The Way We Is

Chris is back after a horrible bear attack to bring some heartwarming joy to the studio by painting the walls with human blood. Cory enjoys this and plays a track called “Puke My Brains Out”. It’s pretty cool.

Yeah. Last-second blog post. Maybe we’ll update it more like later or something. For now, tune in at 11:00 and enjoy. 😀

Nine Inch Nails And Why I Hereby Declare Him Great

Nine Inch Nails has been around for a while now and he just gets better. This is Chris’ really brief look at what makes NIN/Trent Reznor pretty fucking cool.

Trent Reznor
Trent Reznor

Before I dig into this, I want to make clear that I virtually always refer to Nine Inch Nails as “he”, “him”, etc. Almost never do I use “they”. This is because Trent Reznor is the band creator, the main creative force and the only constant member. Nine Inch Nails as a band is really just Trent Reznor plus whomever he can get. Without Trent, there is no Nine Inch Nails. So, when I start using subjective and objective personal pronouns like “he” and “his”, don’t freak out. Also, I’ll just use “NIN” a lot of the time.

Back in the early ’90s, when Nine Inch Nails was first getting big and popular, I was still lost in a horrible sea of dance mix and radio pop rock. It wasn’t until I was in grade 7-8 that I first heard NIN. I would have been about 13-14 years old. Continue reading “Nine Inch Nails And Why I Hereby Declare Him Great”

Operation Manatee #3: Feeling (S-)Mashy

Cory and Chris lose their urge to smash things and manage to play a steady mix of old and new tunes from a variety of styles – like Thunderheist’s crazy electronic dancey whatever that is.

Luckily, Cory didn’t break the CJTR feed last week so here we come again.. another Tuesday night, another Operation Manatee coming for your ear-holes!

Last week we got a little electronic-happy. Not that it’s a bad thing, but too much electro makes Cory something-something… every intent was being prepared to bring the hammer down this week, to be loud, abrasive and unashamed!

But that’s not likely about to happen. Tune in tonight (or tomorrow’s recording) to find out just how it all mashes together!

Operation Manatee takes over Regina Community Radio!

Man Man
Man Man

That’s right, Regina. When things go wrong and it seems like the world is coming to a brutal, horrible, community radio-less death, they call us: Operation Manatee – and while we may not save the world, we will at least save you from pop radio.

Chris and Cory have lined up a batch of great music (mostly new rock, some electro, little bit of weirdness and other selections)! It’ll be spectacular!

We’ll be making our radio debut (at least, as Operation Manatee) filling in for The Conductor in Black (The Prairie Lilly Special) from 6:00 to 8:00 tonight. Be sure to tune in and turn it up! Continue reading “Operation Manatee takes over Regina Community Radio!”
