What a strange year it's been

At the beginning of the year I was listening to artsy fartsy depressing indie hipster /mu/core music and now I'm really into cheezy bouncy electro house preferably with ponies. I have no idea what my favorite song from 2011 was but this one is pretty high on the list.

Enjoy 2012...

I haven't posted in HOW long?

jeez, so much for reviving this shitty blog. To make up for my slackness here is one of the greatest song/video combinations of all time.

No stadium chanting and moaning for me thanks.

Deadmau5 on dubstep

He's over on /mu/ right now causing an enormous, hilarious shitstorm. I hope it's still stickied in the morning cause I really have to go to bed.

Magic Johnson

Ok, I guess I am old.

Goddamnit, Randall

This is not what I wanted to see while catching up on my comics on a Monday morning. Especially the alt-text.

I'm not even 40 yet. If you'll excuse me, I need to go buy a Mustang convertible.

Sigur Ros - Hoppipolla

This video makes me happy.

That Boy Needs Therapy

Sometimes a song just perfectly captures my mental state.

To say nothing of the video...

Just because

One of my favorite Pixies songs.

Also because I drive past Roswell every day on the way to work. Our Roswell doesn't have aliens though, only Republicans.

I don't know what the hell this is but I like it

Italian synth-disco pop + Japanese out of context mindfuck anime = good?

Animal Collective - Peacebone

Pretty sure this is the greatest music video ever.

If not it's at least the greatest love story ever.

Friday, August 19, 2011

UK pop is my Kryptonite

why have I listened to this song 14 times tonight bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang

In my defense, Q-Tip makes everything 20% cooler. This does not explain my fascination with Calvin Harris.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011


I really liked Tom Waits before I saw this video, now he might be my favorite anything ever.

Killers, thieves and lawyers!!!

Buggin' Out

I forgot how fucking good this album was - DAT BASS

Should have never sold this CD at my college textbook store. I should go back, it's probably still on the shelf...

ABBA - Dancing Queen

This was my favorite song when I was 5.

Knock 'em out the box, Rick

This was my favorite rap song in high school. At least until I got a bootleg copy of a copy of Move Somethin' by The 2 Live Crew.

I still have no idea what the hell Keystone Kops, a super creepy statue and a midget in a nightcap has to do with this song.

Nostalgia is getting weirder

I was flipping through the music stations on my cable the other day and found an old-school hip-hop station. Ever since then I've been mildly obsessed with listening to rap music from the late '80s to the early '90s.

Woop woop! KRS-One did a show/talk at my college sophomore year. I didn't go but I walked past the sign advertising it about 500 times on the way to and from class. Maybe I shoulda gone? Stupid reality interfering with my nostalgia.

Devo got my mind messed up

So it's spelled Booji Boy, but it's pronounces "Boogie Boy".

When the hell has the letter J has a hard G sound? EVER?

This kinda shit keeps me up at night.

Saturday, May 14, 2011

It's not a guilty pleasure if you're not guilty about it

So yeah. I like Duran Duran.

You wanna fight about it?

Happy college memories

ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long

I first heard this song in college and I liked it so much I bought the tape. (yes cassette tape, I is an old bastard) I was mixed up in a junior conservative recruitment scam disguised as a campus Christian group at the time. One of the girls who attended the cult meetings devotionals noticed the tape one day and asked "Ministry? Oh, is that a Christian group?" I thought about it and told her that they did indeed sing songs about Jesus. One of my cleverer friends who caught on to the brainwashing before everyone else laughed his ass off. We never got to date any of the future Stepford Wives in the group. We did start ditching meetings to watch the Simpsons on one of the UHF channels. Everything turned out just fine.

Ow, my childhood

Well, my collegehood at least. I was pretty childish in college.

I lost track of Weezer after Pinkerton but I had no idea they were doing commercial jingles now. The sad thing is it's kinda good.

I love Cake

My favorite slice of Cake:

Cake also has a new album out and is on tour. Just about every band I really like has/is/will be releasing an album this year. If Camper Van Beethoven and The Pixies release an album, this year will officially be the best year ever for music. Oh shit, David Lowery DID release an album. Get to work, Pixies!

Monday, April 25, 2011


Apparently some naughty person leaked the clean version of the Beastie Boys' new album.

To combat this heinous act, the Beasties are streaming the filthy dirty nasty version of the album.

Fight for yer rights, peeps.

Weird Al has a new album coming out

Ignore the Gaga brouhaha, that's just viral marketing. I'm posting this video aren't I? See, Weird Al just got free advertising right here to maybe two or three people! PURE GENIUS

In other news how the smeg did I miss this??? That may be the second greatest song about Charles Nelson Reilley ever.

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

No, thank YOU

Got this in my e-mail today.

Mighty nice of Ed, Colin, Jonny, Philip & Thom.

Suck it, Adolf.

Here's real Ruby Soho after yesterday's debacle.

I don't like Vampire Weekend anymore

Well, it's not like I really liked them before, I was pretty neutral about them actually. I was surprised when I heard one of their songs used in a Target commercial and thought that was kind of cool, but didn't have an opinion either way.

Then I heard this:

Sorry guys, you may be the finest indie-rock band named after a calendar monster but you don't fuck with Ruby.

This on the other hand is perfectly acceptable.

Thursday, April 07, 2011


And Fergus. Or vice versa. Whatever. When I heard this song on the radio I was all "Zappa on the radio, WTF?"

But it's NOT Zappa. It's Fergus. And Geronimo. On the radio. Well, college radio. Which is the best radio.

Kiwi skaters are insane

Skateboarding in Christchurch after the earthquake with Radiohead accompaniment.

Falling into a gaping crack in the earth after a quake is one of my personal irrational phobias, so this might be the first time I've ever cheered on the police for hassling kids on skateboards.

Happy Birthday

REM. First gig played on April 5, 1980 in Athens. Here's a little ditty from their first EP, Chronic Town.

That blue gargoyle brings back some great memories of Athens.

This is so punk, I'm probably on a list somewhere now.

a list of loser posers

Yesterday's video was a little disturbing. A Rebecca Black remix? Yeah, I went too far there. Here's something nice to make up for it.

My favorite song from The King of Limbs

After listening to the album a few times this was the song I kept coming back to over and over. That bass line makes me happy. The album itself is very tight, I don't get the hate.

Also: Radiohead fans are insane. Like, Paul is dead conspiracy insane. I mean this as a compliment.  AAAAAHHH THE BEES

Arcade Fire - Rococo

Oh dear God what is that horrible song they're singing

Best song from the best album of 2010. I didn't even like Arcade Fire until I heard this.

However, the Grammys are still shit.

Saturday, February 12, 2011

The Egyptian Lover - Egypt, Egypt

This just seemed appropriate for some reason.

The pyramids are oh so shiny... ??

Cruel Angel's Thesis

Not gonna lie, I saw a post about Neon Genesis Evangelion on Metafilter and got all Gainaxtalgic.

I don't know why I like foreign pop music so much, probably because I can't tell how vapid the lyrics are and there's no pop celebrity baggage to bum me out.

It's infamous for the dancing furries, but anything with the dudes from Jurassic 5 kicks ass.

And I had Muffin Man running through my head today for no reason.

And why not?

Undead Milkmen

The Dead Milkmen aren't dead! They have recorded a new album that will maybe probably sorta come out in March or April. I got so excited I went out and bought Eat Your Paisley in anticipation.

Here's a cut from the new album plus my favorite song from Not Richard, But Dick. I know that everything will be all right...

Most Loathsome of 2010

I look forward to this article every year. 2010 was particularly loathsome, wasn't it?

Tuesday, January 11, 2011


The Residents' Not Available album was re-released today.

If you could get through that, here's the playlist for the entire album.

If you can get through that, then buy the fucking thing. It ain't but 12 bucks or so.

I've always been a little skeered of the Residents meself. I was introduced to them through some Primus covers, about crapped myself when I saw the Third Reich 'n Roll album cover for the first time, have discovered that a hell of a lot of my favorite bands are influenced by them, and finally broke down and bought a used copy of Animal Lovers last week. I'm worried I might be on some kind of watchlist now. The good thing about being on that kind of watchlist is if if They finally round us all up at least I'll get to hang out with some interesting people for the rest of my life.

Stevie Wonder - Pastime Paradise

Is there anyone better than Stevie?

If you say Coolio, I'll smack you.

If you say Weird Al... well... you might have a point there.

Gerry Rafferty - Night Owl

Lotsa people dying already this year. I heard this song for the first time when I was reading a memorial thread on Rafferty and I can't get it out of my head now. Godspeed Gerry.

I was going to post this a couple of days ago but Blogger had a case of the yips. So much for one post a day this year.

I thought that music mattered

But does it? Bollocks.

Not compared to how people matter.

Sleigh Bells - Riot Rhythm

If someone put a gun up to my head and demanded I tell them my favorite album from 2010 I would immediately blurt out ARCADE FIRE!!! SUBURBS!!!

But got-DAMN ain't Sleigh Bells catchy.....

Peter Cushing lives in Whitstable

I have seen him on his bicycle.

He also can't be mesmerized.

Me too

Time to make your new year's resolutions.

Mine should probably be to post here more than once a month.
