So I took the oppurtunity of a blizzard and my little brother Alexander Velky being around (he was down from Wales to visit Hercules) to shoot a video for my classic song HAPPY WHEN IT SNOWS… Alex had actually never shot a video before, but he seems to be a goodamn natural. That’s him frolicking joyfully in slow motion towards then end.
The song first appeared on ATD20, and I’d forgotten about it until someone on my Facebook suggested it last week… so big up you, wise human, for this beautiful artwork would not exist witout you.
Music by CCHG. Whoever they are. The instrumental track was called Chinaman Papa when I first heard it on a Vice playlist that has since been eradicated from history, and the internet has no record of either the band or the song. It’s as if they never existed. Very weird indeed. If anyone knows or knows anything of that band please holla at me, I wanna thank them.
ENJOY THIS FINE ARTWORK!
PEACE AND LOVE

And now for a word from our host, Adam Jan Narkiewicz, AKA Akira The DON!
Brothers and sisters!
HAPPY DON DAY!
Yes, the stars are barelt visible through the big purple rain clouds here in Nu Olympia, the giant illuminated triangles that make up the new stadia are strobing away, and I have been on this particular mortal plane for thirty two songs.
Songs? I meant years. Song years. Swag. Yes. ANYWAY! On this day of celebration I am happy that I have spent most of it rendering audio and making website pages and youtube players and soundcloud players so that people can listen to this music in as many ways as they wish.
I hope you enjoy this music. I worked very hard on it, and put all my love into it. I’d like to thank everybody that had faith in enough in me to preorder the thing, and I’d like to thank all the incredible artists that contrinuted to this beautiful artwork that will outlive us all. I’d also like to thank Eric Esquivel, from whom I borrowed it’s most excellent title.
It’s midnight here in Nu Olympia, and I must now stop fannying around with metadata and prepare for tomorrow morning, when I will fly to America and have adventures and make songs and videos. When I come back home I am going to start recording my third album.
London got a screening of the first 13 minutes of Prometheus today, but those of us that weren’t invited (what the fuck, Fox?!) can always gaze in wonder at this beautifully slowed down version of the Imax trailer.
