Is it frivolous to comment on things when I should theoretically be commenting tomorrow, in the passionate throes of New Books Are Out Wednesday¹? Well, of course, the answer is: who cares? So, onward and upward! Most important news is, I’m afraid, music-related, and not comic book related: after comments, photos, and statements insisting that […]Read More I Don’t Need Pride of Place, But in Your Good Books I Think I Might Rate a Page
My listening has been really passive and boring–oddly, close to the listening I did years ago, which I’ve been wanting to get back to. A shuffle of 5 or so albums in the car (a burnt copy of No Coast which includes my digital copies of the Forgetters 2×7″ and J. Robbins’s Abandoned Mansions acoustic EP, The Wombats […]Read More Oh No, Can It Be? We’re Heading for a Heatwave
So, the packages I was awaiting arrived! With numerous additional items that also happened to arrive! Sort of. I knew that three of them were coming (Aquaman, GJBR order, and Mile High order) while the Forgetters EP was a total mystery (I received no communication from the seller after paying) and Tar Man was pretty […]Read More I’ve Been a Straight-Up Ghost, Since You Wrote Me Off
Today is a record day for sure, until it’s a Godzilla day. The more specific elements of my record collection’s sorting are currently on my plate, which means lots of listening (yay!). So far it was hitting up my introductory Whigs album (In the Dark), which I had not yet listened to my copy on […]Read More You Run for Cover in the Heat, Why Don’t They…
I’ve been organizing my music the past few days, and listening to records (finally!) with a focus on the ones I haven’t listened to yet (of course!), and yesterday I put on Al Kooper’s You Never Really Know Who Your Friends Are, which I bought in Atlanta last year in October (if that sounds bad, […]Read More I’ll Never Let You Down
I just finished Color Me Impressed: A Film about the Replacements and I don’t know what to think. A lot of people are angry that it includes absolutely nothing of their music whatsoever (it really doesn’t) and that Paul, Tommy, Chris, Slim (I think this was filmed long enough ago?), even Peter Jesepersen does not appear […]Read More It’s too late to turn back, here we go
Who cares? This album is awesome.Read More Not the original cover for this album, but…
I’m listening to Robert Allen’s Jazz Jackrabbit soundtrack right now (man, that was a killer set of low-rez music!), so I haven’t fun words to fill a title. I also don’t have the experience of seeing the Whigs up close and frighteningly personal: vehicular troubles meant they had to cancel–but that did mean I walked away […]Read More Ah, What Words?
