FEELING THE FEELING

Comments from crania americana

The original, fwiw, is from this great, weird record that I found thanks to reading Dan Bachman's blog a few years back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcPd2UuAKf0

Really excited to hear this. Nansemond was cool as hell, and having had the pleasure of hearing him bring out "Moonshine is the Sunshine" when I saw him play about a year and a half ago, I'm looking forward to hearing the recorded version.

Yeah I was just making a dumb joke, as is my wont. Though it should be noted that unlike my favorite biopic –– the timeless VH1 original film Hysteria: The Def Leppard Story –– Amadeus has not aged very well.

If it weren't for the ellipsis I'd see this as a triumphant statement. A century ago people were getting amped about eugenics and hoping they didn't get polio. Now everyone thinks they deserve a biopic? My god, this century!

Some strong Fleetwood Mac vibes here –– one of the best tracks of the year.

August 24, 2016 on Angel Olsen – “Sister” Video
No signs of Willie, Merle, Kristofferson, Parsons, Prine, or Emmylou Harris and only one Townes Van Zandt song? At #151? Holy fuck. "To Live is to Fly" would probably be #1 on my list, for what it's worth.

Enjoyed the new Cass album on first listen, but time will tell whether the more left-field cuts are secretly genius or actively obnoxious.

Also a great choice. A perfect summer album.

I love c/l/v. But it's a pretty downcast album. Not a lot of summertime vibes there.

My song of the summer is Steve Gunn's "Ancient Jules." Is it THE song of the summer? No, of course not. Which makes this the meaningless internet poll equivalent of voting for Jill Stein. But given these hilariously low stakes, I have qualms about voting my conscience.

I've seen Dino live a few times over the years, and I consistently want to shout "play some new stuff!" Naturally I hold back, because the last thing you want to be is one of those dipshits who shout demands at the stage. It's cool that they play so many classics from the first run, but I'd freak if they pulled out "See You" or "We're Not Alone."

I also don't like streaming, so I'm pretty ambivalent about all of this. I'll be buying downloads (and hard copies, natch) until our overlords at Apple somehow force me to convert.

Back in my day we called the streaming wars swordfighting! Just a little joke about crossing urine streams with a friend, there. Have a great weekend!

I think the episode where one of them tricked a bunch of celebrities on the VMA red carpet into thinking he was Isaac Mizrahi is one of the defining moments of not just MTV in the '90s, but the '90s in general.

I'm not sure if the fact that I remember so much of this MTV original programming fondly (not to mention: Buzzkill! Undressed! Rock n' Jock Basketball!) is impressive or deeply sad.

Do you love everything about "Standing Outside of a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand" except the melody and often find yourself thinking, "what if instead it mostly consisted of some guy muttering about how fucked up Michael Jackson was?" Well this my friend is this the song for you!

Another programming note for the DNC: I'd watch the shit out of an apocalyptic video montage of Trump lowlights set to "Sweating Bullets."
