    I've been enjoying an 80's classic, Avalon by Roxy Music. I think it's essential.

    So I turn the pages
    And tell the story
    From town to town
    People tell me
    Be determined
    Poor country boy
    Too much luck
    Means too much trouble
    Much time alone
    But arm in arm
    With my seaside diamond
    l'll soon be home
    That's funny... Kundalini Express just came onto my computer. I still love Love and Rockets. And just about anything you can call 80s mope rock (Joy Division, the Smiths, New Order, Chameleons UK, etc.) Still heavy in my playlist.

    Been listening to this a lot lately: Fat Wreck Chords IFloyd Sampler

    It's solid all the way through and free! The Strike Anywhere, Lawrence Arms and None More Black songs are particularly good, but the remainder doesn't suck either

    Found a couple mix CDs I made in college, decided that they would accompany me on the commute this week.
    Normally, when I made a mix CD in college, I usually put a couple tunes on there that I liked and the rest of the disc would be filler. Basically my compilations would kind of be disappointing.
    But, this morning I found an old CD that I made for a brewery hop a couple buddies and I made a while back. Entitled Super Saturday, it was by far a triumph in my crafting of a mix CD.
    This contained:
    Rush (of course)
    Jimmy Eat World
    MC Solaar and Guru
    (French rap with a jazz fusion)
    Dream Theater
    The Kinsmen
    (Louie Louie)
    Louis Prima
    The Police
    Queensryche
    The Used
    Nappy Roots
    Warren G


    Weird and eclectic mix, I know. But it had good flow and brought back some memories. Seems that when I tried to achieve a "flow" or "theme" with my compilations, I fell short. Seems when I put together tunes to capture the spirit of a day with friends, I achieve mix CD greatness.

    I cannot wait for the remainder of the Disc on the way home.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
    -Peart

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    wow.

    Biscuit, I believe you are a Snow Patrol fan? Their new disc is excellent. 5 stars from Boiker. And you should know that this rating carries far more weight than any radio play or industry issued plantinum or gold records
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Currently listening to Metric... quite good, just like all of the bands somewhat related to Broken Social Scene I've heard... (Stars, Feist and Metric... funny that the 3 correlate to the 3 female vocalists in BSS, Amy Millan, Leslie Feist and Emily Haines)

    A few quite good instrumental music bands I've found recently are Dirty Three (who would've thought that something good could come out of Australia ) and Kaki King... Well Kaki King is sure an amazing guitarist....

    Do you think that The Fixx song "Less cities, more moving people" is pro-sprawl?

    Here's the lyrics.....

    Another home falls by the wayside
    A few old cushions stuffed with pride
    A hand is shaking from the rubble
    This is spirit is still alive
    A servant bares his occupation
    Breaks his back just growing old
    Never mind his views were taken
    Just saw by the rules of old
    Less cities more moving people
    Rushing out with pride
    Less cities more moving people
    Hands that once were tied
    A church bell rang for the occasion
    The average man learns what's in store
    Now he sees where his life was taken
    Fighting heat, but growing old
    Less cities more moving people
    Rushing out with pride
    Less cities more moving people
    Hands that once were tied
    Is this what we call education
    Just watch the wheel of time revolve
    But why is this not what I'm thinking
    Just one mind and the unknown!
    Less cities more moving people
    Rushing out with pride
    Cities are moving people
    Who just forgot their lives
    _____

    Seems more like a poem about getting in a rut, and just using people who are moving through the city as the example. Or.....perhaps a statement about the willingness we have to abandon cities. Who the fixx knows?

    Trying to figure out song lyrics is a science in itself.

    two days till the Reel Big Fish concert. I've been counting down for a month now, which isn't too bad since I've been waiting to see them since the early 90s! Wolfmother in concert next month... in Portland!

    I saw U2 last night at the Sydney Olympic Stadium. It was a pretty good concert, jam packed with 80,000 people.

    Kanye West opened, he was ok i guess, the sound wasnt really good for him actually, couldnt hear it very well, but he rocked and the bass shook the stadium!

    Just as U2 came out it started pouring rain- considering Sydney is in a drought thats pretty funny, and most of us were not undercover so we got drenched! But they are very good live, i was suprised. They played about 20 songs, missed a couple of my favourites, so that wasnt good. Bono went on about his peace on earth stuff which was ok, but got a little too much for most people.

    All in all a very good concert, plenty of singing and dancing, good time had!

    I went and saw Reel Big Fish on Friday night. They were awesome... but the guys that played just before them really stole the show. There were three bands up before RBF: Westbound Train, Suburban Legends and Streetlight Manifesto. And Streelight Manifesto was just awesome. I haven't been listening to much ska lately, since there really isn't too much airplay around here. So I didn't really know these guys... but boy were they tight. Just awesome to see live, so I was really glad I got to the venue early that night. I guess these guys are from Jersey, so it was cool to get some east coast ska in with the west coast.

    It was cool to go to a ska show after so many years. I haven't really seen any ska since I moved away from Portland about five years ago. As it turned out, we had my 14 y.o. step-daughter that night and we decided it would be cool to take her since it was an all ages show. She had a great time, though she was kind of freaked out by a REAL mosh pit, so we ended up standing in the back of the room. I was skanking around the living room before we went to the show to freak her out (you know... she doesn't want to be embarassed by her parents ). And then when we got there the whole crowd was skanking way more animated than I was, so I felt very validated. It ended up being about four hours of live music, and I think it was an eye-opener for her about what a live music experience can be. She ended up using her own money to buy a concert t-shirt (Streetlight Manifesto, not Reel Big Fish btw...), so I'm pretty sure she had a good time too.

    Q. Has anybody heard or plan to buy Neil Young's "Live at the Fillmore East" ?
    I have read it is good.

    JNA.....Thanks for the hint on Neil Young. On my way home from the workplace last night I was listening (way too loud to be safe ) to Neil Young & Crazy Horse's "Rust Never Sleeps". Great album from 1979.....gonna change my tag line......out of the blue and into the black.....

    I will do some on-line checking of your suggestion.
    _____

    The other night I purchased the "new" Beatles CD, "Love". Re-structuring of many great Beatle tunes by George Martin (original Beatles producer?) and his son, Giles. It was formatted to fit a Las Vegas show.

    Sure.....I have a number of versions of every one of these tunes. But, hearing the subtle and not-so-subtle arrangement changes knocked my Go Blue socks off. I love the album.....but, I will probably always be a Beatles "snob".

    Also bought "Bat Out Of Hell III"......real name, "The Monster Is Loose". Always liked Meat Loaf.....the big wall of sound and heavy-weight production given to rock and roll.....I like this, the latest "Bat". The original title tune, though, is one of the best songs of all time (Bat I).

    And.....gonna ask Mister Santa to bring me a John Legend CD. Saw him perform in a VH1 Special.....really good stuff.

    Since it's Thanksgiving - an classic song -
    Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie (1966)

    Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago ....
    "This dump is closed on Thanksgiving" and we'd never heard of a dump closed on Thanksgiving before ....
    ... had another Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat, ....
    Q. Would I find any Cyburbians sitting on that
    bench that says 'Group W'
    ?
