I know they changed your life. I know they put a bunch of songs on that one movie Scrubsy McGardenstate. I even know that their second album was neatly wrapped poo. AND I know that you were disappointed when you listened to their second album and discovered that it was neatly wrapped poo because their first album really DID change your life and that blow caught you way off-guard. And I know that that scares you, scares you more than you will ever readily admit.

But this song's good.

Noah Georgeson - Walking on Someone Else's Name

Noah Georgeson seems to be on top of the world these days. And by the world I mean Nevada City, CA. He's lent his name to The Pleased (with co-Californian Joanna Newsome) and a few other Nevada City projects that are beginning to get to gain momentum and spread east. This song comes from his solo effort, and is one of the best things I've heard on the blogs recently.

tonight, the underdog hawks face the cocksure miners in a bitter cross-valley grudge match for the 5A football state championship. it's been years and years since i strode those hallowed halls, but tonight, i'll don the black and silver and revel as the sacred strains of ac/dc shake the sheets at rice-eccles, confident in victory. as you enjoy this vid, peep the number on brian johnson's jersey.

AC/DC- Back in Black

lo, is it not the self-same 22 as alta's star tailback, s. shakerin?

who rocks the house? the hawks rock the house.

charles mingus - mood indigo

this tune is a rainy day sidewalk, a brushing windshield wiper. it's sadness, yes, but robust, fibrous sadness. comforting sadness. sadness that sits next to you on the porch swing and whispers, this too shall pass. and you, both of you, swing.

The Free Design is a very old act, but it's new to me. Elinita played them for me this evening and I thought to myself as I listened along "I like bands who concern themselves with the second coming of Christ". Its true, I like that quite a bit.

you ever have something in your tunes that you think is very good and then two years later you're listening to a shuffle and it comes on and all of a sudden it's the most brilliant thing that has ever occurred? sometimes that happens to me.
