Oh damn, yes, that documentary would be RIVETING.
Side Note: That’s some of the greatest midriff I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Out on the road today, I saw a Sublime sticker on a Subaru Outback,
the Comics Curmudgeon actually got me reading Heathcliff again.
I tried to set Josh up for some reality TV hosting work, but the company I was with didn’t take an interest. They were fools.
True story: When I was a kid, I thought Stevie Nicks was a man and Lindsey Buckingham was a woman, just based on their names, and never having seen pictures of them or (apparently) heard any pronouns used to refer to them. I think I was 14 or 15 before I read an article about them which clarified things.
Foxtrot-Selling England by the Pound-Lamb lies down on Broadway
The Lamb is still my favorite prog album of all time. Take your star, from a fellow nerd.
I’m the same, and I’ve come to conclude E’s just basically given all he has to give. The new stuff is fine, it’s just variations on a theme. I didn’t realize Cautionary Tales was a thing up until a few weeks ago.
I’m a big fan of Hombre Lobo and Wonderful Glorious/Tomorrow Morning are both pretty good. End Times and The Cautionary Tales were both way too one-paced for me though.
I remember the evolution from Beautiful Freak to Electro-Shock Blues to Daisies of the Galaxy to Souljacker, just constant growth. Then Shootenanny!, and it was like, okay, back to basics. Then Blinking Lights, which was a very long summation of his career. Felt like the end of the first chapter, really. And then...…
This show has everything: Chadwick Boseman, John Mulaney, disappointment thrones.
The Eurythmics need way more love than they get. The wierd creative tension between their electro art-pop sensibility Annie Lennox’s soul diva inclinations and made for something incredibly interesting.
How the hell does Pollard remember any of his own songs? Let alone try to play them or get a band to learn them after they’re recorded?
Squint was one of the defining moments in my life. Listening to “Jesus is for Losers” or “The Finish Line” challenged my faith like nothing that came before it.
Steve Taylor only just recently returned to music, after a couple of decade focusing on film work. Before putting down the guitar he released Squint (1994), which for me was his most powerful record ever (so of course it was almost entirely ignored in Christian circles).
Love I Predict 1990! Squint is even better imho.
My wife and I both gave up three episodes in on this season. Just didn’t care anymore. It felt like they were going in circles, and it smacked of tragedy porn. The non-stop gunplay was ridiculous too. It’s funny, because I actually enjoyed Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan.
Yes, thanks for the reminder that the first track was actually the first single(at least where I lived...OH). All of my friends loved them.
