  1. Spoon - Bring it on Home to Me (Sam Cooke cover)
  2. Nicole Atkins & the Sea - (live on Letterman) We opened for her last night; she was fantastic. Very friendly, too.
  3. So what kind of body mods are we talking about here? Are we looking at x-ray vision or more noticable stuff -- like a third arm? I bet I could play guitar like a sonuvabitch if I had a third arm. I'm dragging at work today. We're going to have a new band rule: No more Tuesday night shows. I don't care if it's our foot in the door, the next day just isn't worth it.
  4. Maybe he died in a grease fire. No, I kid. He was actually the best songwriter in G 'n R. Teenage Fanclub - Simply Nothing to be Done God DAMN, that chorus is so singable!
  5. As we used to say on these boards ages ago whenever someone posted that song, CAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRIIIIIBBBBBBBBBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Frank Black and Teenage Fanclub - Handyman Yes, I clearly remember doing that. Enjoy the Hives, Muso. There was a time when "Die, All Right!" was one of my most-played songs. I also dug their cover of "Find Another Girl" on that same album. Howlin' Pelle is still one the best frontmen out there. Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds - Pressure Drop Wow, what a terrible cover of a great song.
  6. Steve Earle - Valentine's Day Hope everyone's was what they wanted it to be.
  7. The Replacements - Can't Hardly Wait
  8. All right, then. I see people are still doing this? I'm having a productive day. I sent some queries to some PR folks, wrote the first section of one of my cover stories, talked to our freelance photographer about setting up a shoot for a cover subjects, and now I'm waiting for my tea to cool. I'll have to stay late at work tonight, which is kind of a bummer. I've got a phone interview with the CEO of a Left Coast company that is set for 2:30 p.m. their time. I'd try to reschedule, but it's hard enough to get on this guy's calendar. I wouldn't want to get bumped completely off it. The Valentine's shopping is done, but I still need to get a card. It's going to be a busy weekend. The band's playing a show on Friday night, so I'll probably be out of commission until midday on Saturday. Then, the wife and I (along with both sets of parents) are going to go see Wicked on Sunday. /drabek blog
  9. The Tribe now employs a relief pitcher known as Kobayashi. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3120653 It's unknown whether or not this relief pitcher also works for Keiser Soze, but I think it's safe to say that we'll need to hire more hot dog vendors this year. If the Tribe can recover from that terrible, terrible choke in the ALCS, I think they'll win the Central. The Tigers' new lineup doesn't scare me. Good pitching trumps good hitting every time.
  10. You're absolutely right, Kor. Apparently the picture I linked doesn't have th staying power of the seminal album from Bob Mould's power-pop-punk outfit (you see what I did there?). Lucero - What Else Would You Have Me Be?
  11. "If I Can't Change Your Mind"
  12. Faith No More - Stripsearch
  13. Filthy Thievin' Bastards - Hopeless Vows
  14. You guys are so classy with your mixed drinks. I think it's a progressive move when I try a new microbrew. Today is a bittersweet day, because I'm finally drinking the last of my Pumpkinhead ale. It's made at the Shipyard Brewing Co. in Portland, Maine, and it's the only pumpkin spiced ale out there that gets it just right. So it's my last one, but I am enjoying it.
  15. The Everybodyfields - Aeroplane If you like the Jayhawks, you'll probably like these guys.
  16. Very informative post. Interesting thoughts about why some programmers prefer consoles. It seems like these days PC gaming is a whole lot of work for not enough of a reward. I don't want to have to finagle with my virtual memory or tweak my antialiasing settings to get a game to run well. Viva la console!
  17. Chris Bell - You and Your Sister
  18. Nicole Atkins & the Sea - Brooklyn's on Fire LISTEN!
  19. Supersuckers - Pretty ****ed Up she used to be pretty but now she's just pretty ****ed up Pure gold.
  20. We just got done with the artwork last week. We've been tweaking the final mixes to get them just the way we want them. We've also added cello to several tracks, which required more recording and mixing -- but was totally worth it! Lately, we've been shopping around for a good company to actually make the CDs. CD replication/duplication is actually fairly expensive, especially if you want to make less than 1,000 (which we do, because I don't want to tile my bathroom with unsold CDs). Teenage Fanclub - The Concept
  21. Guess what? We're opening for him on February 15! We're the first of four bands, but it's still pretty exciting! Oasis - Some Might Say
  22. I've been playing Dead or Alive 2 (Ultimate) on my 360. It's backwards compatible! Also, I'm getting a lot better at Guitar Hero 2. The wife and I have five-starred everything on medium, and I've moved on the the "hard" difficulty setting. I failed "Madhouse" on hard yesterday. I was 98% through the song. That was the closest I've come in years to tossing a controller through the TV.
  23. R.E.M. - (Don't Go Back To) Rockville
  24. so.... i've been listening to orange rhyming dictionary a lot lately. I think i like jets to brazil more than jawbreaker. does that mean i'm not punk?

    cause i don't think i've been punk for like three years now.

  25. The Afghan Whigs - My World is Empty Without You Awwww yeah.
