Incorporating a lisp into your speech simply because the king has one is just plain foolish. We all know that. So the fact that they even pronounce "Barcelona" incorrectly is a dead give away. They're not from Spain at all. Damned liars. Were they from the great city they would pronouce it BarTHelona, but you know what, I'm glad they dont. Give it up already, Spain.

This is a happy bit that sounds like the Polyphonic Spree, maybe with the cult-ish thing toned down a few notches. Listening to this song I was struck by one thought...I think Lee the Douche is really going to like this one. Here you go, man.

I'm From Barcelona - We're From Barcelona

I'm a girl, and thus, am hardly impervious to cute girl voices. Feist, Mirah, whatever you got, I'll listen to it. I'll probably sing along to it, alone, in my car, and dream of being up there on stage with that lilting alto easing out of me. That wishing-i-were-something-i'm-not paired with my recently discovered penchant for playing the air piano have earned this song innumerable plays.

gonna find you - operation ivy

this record is skipping class, mountain dew, the basement, cruising the 'stang, and losing too many dollars to matt at tetris. 16 wasn't so bad.

This seems like a song Lou Reed would've appreciated if he'd been knocking about in a late 1970's Cambridge. I like when Hitchcock ask if I "would care for a lump of steak?".

yojimbo (titles) - masaru satoh

possibly the most astonshing and appropriate theme from any movie i've ever seen. someone once asked me what song i'd want to play everytime i walked into a room. one worthy day, i hope it will be this song.

i love this still of mifune from the film. so fantastic.

special thanks to dinosaurgardens for fielding a fine site and posting many treasures like this one.

I've noticed recently that my subconscious mind is far more interesting than my conscious one. After weeks of being plagued by nightmares and anxiousness, I've been blessed with some really creative, sweet dreams involving a theme park called Dr. Pepper Land, rollerskating with Mike Kelly, Mexico, and a picture book called Mean Serpents. May the good dream luck continue.
