P.S.: Fuck you, 2016, you heartless piece of shit.
This is my new jam. One of them. Definitely one of my fav Foo Fighters songs.
Top 10 Songs of All Time
This was triggered by Marty’s post on Twitter: Your favorite song of all time…if you had to choose just one to put above the rest…what would it be? — Mothra. (@MarthaYoung) July 14, 2015 There were a lot of great responses to that question — and a bunch of answers I’d definitely put in my … Read more
My New Jam
Holy fucking shit what a good song. Seriously. Just discovered this band yesterday and they feel so much like where Queen would have gone were Freddie Mercury were still alive. This is going to be on continuous loop for a few days (or maybe the rest of the summer). Love it.
Dodging bullets with your broken past
I can’t hear you, I don’t fear you now
Wrapped in your regret
What a waste of blood and sweat
Oh oh oh…
I wanna taste love and pain
I wanna feel pride and shame
I don’t wanna take my time
I don’t wanna waste one line
I wanna live better days
Never look back and say
It could have been me
It could have been me
2012 Media Intake
Books: Flood by Stephen Baxter, Science Fiction, 488 pages, finished on 1/3/12 This is, as much as most of Baxter’s near-term science fiction, pretty bleak stuff. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the heck out of it and plan to read the sequel, Ark, in 2012, as well. Seed by Rob Ziegler, Science Fiction, 339 pages, finished … Read more
Holy F**king Weekend!
Man, one of the best weekends in the last few years! Friday Easy day at the office, got slaughtered in ping pong by Scott. Then went home, changed clothes, and dropped kid off at the babysitter. Had dinner at Mac’s Industrial with Kate, and then we went to the Atmosphere concert, which was pretty kickass. … Read more
Things That are COMPLETELY AWESOME
So yeah, I haven’t mentioned it here yet, but Eddy came home last Thursday night. And holy crap, what an adjustment. I can now change a diaper faster than I can field-strip an M-16A2 rifle. I can’t do it blindfolded yet, nor do I relish the idea of trying. He’s been a barrel of laughs … Read more
New Music Theory
I am hereby coining the term “the Yorke Conjecture” which postulates that no public discussion of music will go more than 5 minutes without someone bringing up Radiohead. (Not because Radiohead is awesome, mind you. No, it’s because Radiohead fans are worse than Apple fanboys when it comes to vocal smugness.)
Okay, I need some recommendations for new music to buy/download and spin. Lately, I’m really digging Mumford & Sons and Cloud Cult. Historically I like everything from classic (70s/80s) hard rock, metal, old-school rap, some country (Brooks, Cash, Nelson), grunge, post-grunge, punk, pop-punk, the blues (acoustic, delta mostly), some folk (Dylan, Guthrie, Davis), and so … Read more
An Update of Miscellaneous Awesome Stuffs
So hi there, Internets. It’s hump day today, and despite my cat-related exhaustion, I’m in a damn good mood, and there are reasons for it. Reason the first: found a new musical artist that just fucking floored me this morning, just before work. Take a little Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke, add some James Brown, … Read more
