hola, dickweeds! couple o’ things. firstly, those fucktards tried to do me in again yesterday but the fine folks @ imountain were quick to punch and thwarted their asshatery before it got too serious. so here’s the bad news, there’s going to be some necessary changes coming in the near future. while thats not necessarily bad, what is going to be a fuckin bitch is that we are going to have to say goodbye to anything older than a month or so. if there is anything you have been meaning to get, get it now. i am slowly downloading everything off my server so there is a good possibility i will be able to take requests for reposts. thats that bullshit, secondly, it looks as if i will be indeed moving to columbia, sc. i have yet to hear it officially but my sources tell me that i should get that word soon, maybe today. there’s two things i hate, well there’s actually a lot of shit, but to keep it on topic the two things i loathe are packing and moving. good times ahead…
head on over, if you havent already, to daytrotter and bask in the glory that is an everybodyfields sessions. jill’s voice sounds even lovelier live than on record, which i didnt think would be possible.
i’m not a huge fan of mashup stuff, but i think the hood internet’s melding of the 85 bears’ superbowl shuffle, wilco’s “jesus etc” and some kanye west track is pretty damn good/funny. check it!
btw, calexico’s carried to dust is so, so excellent. the production is much like iron and wine’s the shepherds dog, and while it is still very much a calexico sounding record there are large traces of los lobo’s evil but funkier cousin, the latin playboys, to be heard. awesome! definitely going to be a contender for record o’ the year, 08.
here’s a lovely pj harvey show from big day out in australia back in ’01. did anyone get into her last record, white chalk – i believe it is called? i may have listened to it once, or maybe twice but i know it didnt grab me at all. should i even go back and revisit it?
1. rid of me
