weak in your presence silent in your absence there is no inbetween.
blondmisanthrope replied to your video: Not sure why this is stuck in my head. But it… How odd, I was listening to his song go insane just this morning. Get out of my car. /// does that mean I get into your dreams?
trying to figure out what to get for food for this evening. may have to go and get sushi. where i live, i am just a few blocks away from a strip of places that is dominated by greek fare, but also offers several asian options. a gourmet burger joint. and fast food. i wish the fast food was quiznos. but no. kfc, wendy’s and subway. or, i could order the pit boss from boneheads bbq and...
lusheslashes said: Interesting. Ten might be too many to get through. I love when an artist explains what’s in their head when they wrote a song. /// if it just ten of the artist’s songs, that’s about 2 hours of radio time, depending on the songs. it wouldn’t necessarily have to be what was in their head. they could talk about how they feel about the song. anything at all...
chatting with Rusty last night about the new Daft Punk on the twitter reminded me that it’s nice to have people you can shoot the breeze with. and that all the people i like to do that with are very, very far from here.
you would find me very difficult to work with. i like to be methodical and strategic. i tend to bristle when people want to do marcom things quick and dirty. i want the who, what, when, where, why. i want to know who i am talking to. i want to know why this matters to them. i want to know why this is fundamentally different. i want it all. because the more i know, the better the quality...
i can say without hesitation that i’ve learned a lot about what makes a friend a really great friend by being judy’s friend.
radio show idea: you make a list of 10 songs by or associated with an artist. you invite that artist to make a similar list. neither you nor the artist knows what songs will be on your respective lists, but you have the artist in and you each go through the list, with the artist on the spot talking about that particular song. and maybe you the host would ask why they selected the songs they...
remember when we were weightless and moved through each other with such certainty that we never knew moments were teardrop shaped of that they could get away from us
it’s going to be a noodles night.
the sky burst into flame when you awoke but when you left it began to cry.
If you don’t think Jeff Buckley’s Grace is one of the greatest works of art ever created, I don’t think you like music at all.
Jeff Buckley concert →
Jeff Buckley concert at Gleneagles on Sep 3, 1994 Do you like music? Do you think that Jeff Buckley’s Grace is, like, pure aural manna that makes you happy in the tinglies? Here’s Jeff performing live mere days after Grace was released. I’d like to think he had another great album or two in him, whatever the shortcomings of Sketches were.
somehow, even with the cloaking app i use, CBS related sites know i am a fake, a phony and a fraud.
also working my way back from being clean shaven. i’ve had facial hair so much for so long that i no longer look like me without it. my face looks weak and old and sad.
you awoke and suddenly the sky was on fire burning all of the clouds away.
No breather for me. I was barely even logged on after the long weekend when the work started.
there is no story to tell not without you.
all the while that i was a lonely minute or two i was wishing i was hours with you.
yeah, so… i have spent a couple of days thinking i’d pooched things because i wasn’t happy with the work i’d done for nyc. i thought it was bad. but… i found out that i did finally score that one thing i’ve tried two times for previously and didn’t get. and something i worked on with them is up for an award, with my name on it as a copywriter. i have...
my disappointment with the most recent GBV albums made me go back to the earlier ones to see if, maybe, I’d over estimated them. nope. but robert pollard’s quality control is kind of like mine. spew a bunch of short, sharp blasts of noise and let other people figure out if any of it has any merit.
danagel replied to your post: i would like to take this opportunity to say that… If only I had done the same. If only. /// the key difference (is that the Francis Scott Key difference?) is that I could make it through you doing it, but not her not doing it.
i would like to take this opportunity to say that not only do i know the words to the star-spangled banner, i would like to promise you i will never, ever sing it so as to keep it sacred.
tweetface replied to your post: judge me all you want, but i go to Wallyworld… I’m only judging you for calling it Wallyworld. Gah. //// my family has done that for ages and it rubbed off. I will stop, but only for you.
I am clean shaven again!
judge me all you want, but i go to Wallyworld sometimes because it is nearby and cheap. there’s a Sears and a Sears bargain center, but they don’t always have the range of things that are at Wallyworld. i’m not necessarily proud of the fact i shop there. but anyway, when i was there yesterday, i noticed something that is not at any grocery stores here. cookies and creme pop...
would you help me find a means to wash away the day?
dreams falling from the sky in a hail of clocks and chairs and hearts try to catch them all before they land and feed them with your faraway eyes

tom sawyer now makes me laugh when i hear it because i can only hear eric cartman’s lyrics. also, geddy can’t hit those ‘daffy duck got his nads caught in a car door’ notes anymore. sigh.
not sure if alex lifeson looks more like william shatner or the friendly giant. man, taylor hawkins was happy to be inducting the band. it was like he’d mainlined pixy stix all day.
the 13yo in me is losing his shit that rush is being inducted right now…
The first three public enemy albums remain more exciting to me than any beatles/stones/dylan album you can name.
usher doing rock with you to honor quincy jones reminds me not only of how great a producer q is, but how rock with you is one of the absolute great songs. it’s the perfect encapsulation of aspirational pop. a song whose fundamental appeal lies in the promise that everything is within your reach. all you have to do is take it.
forgot quincy jones hails from chicago. they’re profiling his work on the rock and roll hall of fame. i still say off the wall is better than thriller. don’t argue, kids.
the tempo on the rock and roll hall of fame baracuda is too lugubrious. but ann wilson’s voice has aged like the finest wine does. it’s a thing of beauty.
