A recent excursion to my old house showed that there were actually a few of the original hand-made Tidal Wave CDs available. These include an 8-page booklet, hand-cut and glued by my own two hands, along with a double-sided tray insert, hand-cut, folded and glued, all in a standard CD jewel case.
The CDs themselves are simple CD-Rs with the tracks burned onto them, hand-labelled with a black Sharpie.
Each edition was also hand-numbered on the back of the jewel case insert and also on the discs themselves. Only 25 of these were ever made.
These will never have a hand-made edition like this ever again.

I saw a video once of the Smashing Pumpkins covering Godzilla by the Blue Oyster Cult. Very badly. I thought to myself, "I could do it better than that."
So I did.
I'm not sure why it made it onto the EP, truth be told, and I probably shouldn't have done so, but it felt right at the time, so I did.
With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the city's high tension wires down
Helpless people on a subway train
Scream to God as He looks in on them
He picks up a bus, and throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings to the center of town
They say he's gotta go
Go, Go, Godzilla
There goes Tokyo
Go, Go, Godzilla
History shows again and again
How nature points out the follies of man
