GOD DAMN IT all this "the" Replacements ep talk is making me angry because I just want to hear there is going be a series of reunion shows
re-listening to Give Up by The Postal Service, and honestly, the Owl City comparison is such bullshit. this album has such more substance then anything Owl City could've attempted to do. /rant.
Im drinking coors light and listening to Orange Juice's You Can't Hide Your Lpce Forever...I don't know if I should be disgusted by myself or not .

I just discover Orange Juice after hearing one of guys from Cut/Copy confessing how much he loves them.
I like the idea of a city full of owls more than USPS, especially since this whole Lance Armstrong debacle has been exposed.
D'Angelo's new '99% done' record sounds promising. Questlove, who might be a bit biased, says:
"I would not be far off by saying this is probably my generation's version of Sly (and the Family Stone's) 'There's a Riot Goin' On.' It's potent. It's funky. It's an extremely hard pill to swallow. He's one of those artists that have, of course, taken 13 years to follow up a record. It's going to take you about 10 years to digest this record. Totally brilliant. Just the way this society works with music… being able to judge if something is a classic after the first listen, you can do that after thirty seconds on this. And the fact that we started this record in 2004, and it still sounds like it came out five years from now, it is a testament to the timelessness of it."

True. Pretty sad about his hemorrhage, but so cool that he manages to still play shows and not let it deter him. My friend from London went and saw Arctic Monkeys a couple months ago and he came out as a surprise opening guest. Cane and all, started playing Falling and Laughing and the few who knew went apeshit.
Jim James of My Morning Jacket did an AMA on Reddit today. Read it here.
I finally got a reply about The Killmanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble if they would ever play the US and its a Yes but no concrete plans yet...sigh at least it might happen one day even though there is suppose to be a big tour this summer.
Now Black Flag has a new album? I want it to be good, but, man, do I doubt it.
Yep. Young me would be stoked. Oldish me, pessimistic, at best.
Favorite songs on that Nuggets box set:
The Electric Prunes - I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night
Sagittarius - My World Fell Down
The Turtles - Outside Chance
The Sonics - Strychnine
The Sonics - Psycho
Mouse - A Public Execution
Love - 7 and 7 is
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
I've never heard of this album before, but based on this Pitchfork review, I'm super excited and intrigued.
