Well, not to offend anyone because for the genre it’s quite good, but I don’t really like that type of stuff. A little slow for me. But it is way up her alley. So thanks for hooking me up on a good Xmas gift.
I’m not sure if it could be possible for me to be doing worse in my bowl pool. Come on SMU. It’s a home game against Army for f sake. Love our troops, etc., etc.
Bub – re #38, while I’ve owned an iPod for 4 years or so and it is essential my sole music delivery system, I still cannot get over the sanctity of the album ethos I grew up with. All of which to say, I only download full albums.
Curt – do you like stuff like The Band, Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, etc? The Avett Bros. don’t fall too far from that tree from what I’ve heard so far.
Honestly, more like Rage Against the Machine, old Jane’s Addiction, Ministry, et al. I do listen to some slower stuff, but it’s heavy like Sabbath, Fugazi. Stuff like that. I also like the White Stripes a lot and they go between the two.
All that said, the Avett Bros are very good and if I was stuck in my wife’s car it would be the first thing I would grab over the other less palatable options.
Steve, mad respect for your album ethos sanctity. I’ve lost a lot by shunning it and collecting mostly compilations & downloads.
In fact, about a week ago, I youtubed a bunch of songs from Elton John’s “Tumbleweed Connection,” which has zero radio hits, but is outrageously good, and was super bummed out that I’ve neglected album-hunting.
Not altogether, of course. I’ve got a few of the great ones: Abbey Road, Astral Weeks, Blonde on Blonde, London Calling among them. But most of my cd collection is Greatest Hits, even of my favorite artists.
On the bright side, I guess I could start now. Probably a bunch of “Tumbleweed Connections” to be had.
Fantastic concert! Curt, check out Talk on Indolence. May be the only one to your taste but I swear there’s something for everyone. Dublyn, I was wondering if I’ve ever mentioned “Weight of Lies” to you? You’d like it. Plus they say “Aeroplane” instead of Airplane which is super southern and makes me love them even more.
Happy New Year to everyone. For us, it’s off to a late afternoon/early evening party and then Despicable Me (nod to Curt) at home as my 10 and 7 year old attempt to stay up to midnight. What are y’all doing tonight?
I think I’m gonna go see True Grit with next-apartment neighbor. Then come back and do something I haven’t done for New Year’s Eve in 25 years: not drink.
Happy 2011 everyone. (Oh, it’s hardly worth mentioning since I’m sure to blow it, but one of my resolutions is to knock off the sports-related internet surfing addiction. So if I never return, blah blah love to all blah blah [see you soon]).
I hope you guys won’t strip me of my rightful royal title but I just today was able to listen to the show. I have a lot of faith in Jordan S. Mostly cause I want to have faith in him but I also think maturity he’s gained and the benefit of having a wrist that is attached to your arm will do wonders for him. Needless to say, I feel way better about him in the outfield than McSucks. Listening to the show made me LONG for spring training. GO BRAVES!!!!
Best moment of the season was Brooks’ walk off grand slam to solidify amazing come back win in the 9th against the Reds. I LOVE BASEBALL! I’m getting serious grief from my father and my husband for my choice of entertainment. The good bulldogs got it wrapped up so what else is there to do?
Watched the remake of Dawn of the Dead last night (directed by the guy that did “300”). Damn, damn good. I’m a huge fan of the original and liked this one a lot. It’s much different (story-wise) from the original.
Since I can’t wear it out of the house anymore, my Diaz shirt is now a fairly regular nightshirt. I’m recovering: David Ross is my new boyfriend. He just got a two-year deal, if I remember correctly, so we’ll always have Paris…for two years, or until he’s horribly injured, as is my jinx record.
