captains dead’s favorite videos of 2014

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

admittedly, i watch a lot of videos. i spend most of my work days watching whatever on youtube. i fluctuate between tech reviews and music related vids. when i say i spend a lot of time on youtube, i am not fucking around. i would gather at least 3-5 hours of my day are spent on said site. its pretty sad actually… i should be spending that time doing other shit, but alas, that is not the case.

i should mention that caleb’s “trade all the lights” is by far my favorite of the year. its an absolute gorgeous ode to new orleans, a city i both love and i hate. a sentiment i am sure most inhabitants share, but i may be wrong. either way, it kills me every time i watch it. although, hiss golden messenger’s “mahogany dread” is just as lovely and as a dude with a family, it tears at my old man heart strings. then there are the rest, all of which i dig or really dig for various reasons.

captains dead’s favorite records of the year, part 1 of 3

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

hills

today, im just doing my favorite record of the year, and it really should come as no surprise to anyone. that may be assuming way too much, but i have talked about this record a lot whether it be here, twitter, facebook, etc… i love this record as if it was my own stepchild. admittedly, my first go around with have you ever done something evil as not all what i expected. i wanted to be blown away, but i was left a little flat. maybe it was my mood, my expectations, my soberness or too much beer? who the hell knows? this was my problem, not theirs, though. i wrote a drunken ramblings piece on it back in may which pretty much sums everything up, in a absolutely incoherent way. feel free to read that or dont, it dont matter. what does matter is that this is the finest record i have heard this year, last year, and maybe the last 5 years? its pretty much as close to perfect as any band/artist could ever hope to get.

oh, so im going to finish up top twenty in two more posts probably later this week.

m lockwood porter’s “27”

Posted by gregor on Saturday, December 6th, 2014

porter

happy saturday, peoples! few weeks ago this here little stain on the internet turned 9, with zero fanfare, but thats ok. still, in internet time thats a pretty long time. ive written a lot of words over those 9 years, pretty much all by my lonesome, minus maybe 50 out of the 3104 that have been published. im tired, im tired of words that people really dont care about it, etc… shit, i just want to hear the music, i dont want to read what some asshole thinks i should be feeling, or whatever. so from here on out, no words, just music… well limited words. you understand what im saying.

m. lockwood porter’s 27 is one of the best records of the year, its an absolutely amazing collection of songs. you can pick it up for 9 bucks on his bandcamp page. cannot recommend it enough.
