happy sunday! im debating on doing a top 100. as i peruse my hard drives and more than 1k cd’s there are still so many that i could consider favorites. i would almost feel guilty not mentioning em. so, i guess onto a 100 i go. in the mean time here are 26-50.
i’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic as of late, and for really no reason that i can think of. still, its been going on, and i’ve been rediscovering stuff that at one held a significant place in my heart/mind/whatever at one time. its not to say that they still dont, but time changes everything as we all understand. my favorite song, for many a year, was the afghan whigs version of the elvis presley’s “true love travels on a gravel road.” it was released via sub pop on their covers ep, uptown avondale, which is so worth tracking down.
my very short review of infinite arms goes as follows: some will love it, some will hate it. im actually working on a real review for said record. so look for that in a few days. i believe you can grab it via itunes or you can order it in an array of different forms via their site. below the gaudy widget is the kcrw performance.
happy monday! i never thought i would be so happy to be at work as i am today. the wife worked two doubles this weekend so it was me and the raging lunatics all weekend. sure we had some fun, but damn if by about 5 pm yesterday, i had had enough. btw, dont ever google “skeeter eater” when your child is around, it aint pretty. in my defense though, he wanted to see pictures of the bugs that eat mosquitos and wanted to me to google that particular phrase.
found this over the weekend, and as the title suggests it comes from uncut and was put out in 05, i believe. i dont think it was ever for sale, per se, but if you want to buy it in all its cd glory someone is selling it on amazon for 143 bucks.
