This sounds like '80s Bryan Ferry, which is a DAMN GOOD THING.

March 23, 2015 on Brandon Flowers – “Can’t Deny My Love”
"He's got the American Dream now, what he always wanted, messin' with those white women." --Twenty-something black dude, talking on the phone, inbound BART Dublin/Pleasanton Line between Bay Fair and San Leandro, sometime in 2012

Gaye's 31 years in the ground now. The fact that our intellectual property regime allows the holders of his copyrights to continue to profit from his work this long after his death is ridiculous. They have had ample opportunity to earn money from his work and put it into other investments to ensure their financial security. We don't tolerate this shit with patents, and we shouldn't tolerate it with copyright either. It shouldn't take this long for cultural products to enter the public domain.

Pimping a butterfly is the American dream? Idunno about that. According to the gentleman I overheard on BART a while back, I'm pretty sure messing with white women is the real American dream.

The "Dude, fix your fucking FACE!" part of "Vanilla Sky" is arguably his greatest moment on film.

Meh, I'm sure Ira from Yo La Tengo could kick his ass at Seinfeld trivia. Probably wouldn't say "fookin'" quite so endearingly, though.

Dudes I know have been using it for a good ten years now, but Kozelek sent it to the next level. I love it.

Maybe RTJ can do that hip-hop remix of "Richard Ramirez Died of Natural Causes Today" that I've been wanting to hear for a year now.

When we say "'90s-tinged indie rock," you're talking about the stuff informed more by grunge and classic college rock than any sort of post-rock revival, right? 'Cuz I sure as hell haven't seen the latter.

I would be more positive about this trend if Drake didn't make me want to kick him in the teeth every time I hear his voice.

April 30, 2014 on Mirror Kisses – “Genius” Video
Banjo! Harmonica! Yeah, this definitely has the mid-aughts thing going. Fun as hell, though. Take away the horns and add some soaring guitar and this could be a Ted Leo track.

This band is stiffer than a 13-year-old boy who just discovered porn.

March 11, 2014 on Hear Arcade Fire Cover Prince’s “Controversy” In Minneapolis
Man, I certainly wasn't expecting this, but I really like it. Maybe it's just the female backing vox and the overall production, but it reminded me a bit of late-period Go Betweens as well as the aforementioned XTC and World Party.

At first I thought that shirt was the cover of In the Court of the Crimson King, which kinda make sense. I was disappointed to see that, no, it was just her face. However, given Ms. Cyrus' curious musical appetites, I do expect to see her tweet "I repeat myself under stress I repeat myself under stress I repeat myself under stress" at some point in the next year or two.

It didn't bother asking about its drugs because it knows you took them all.
