Woke up at 3 AM with the radio on that Gladys Knight and the Pips song about how she'd rather live in his world with him than in her own world alone, and I lay there with head spinning, trying to fall asleep, and I said: "Oh Gladys, girl, I love you, but oh! GET A LIFE!"

...I'm pretty sure he was talking about cocaine, but I don't pay much attention to Weezer other than my above sentiments.

There was a WaPo piece on "progressive prosecutors" that had a quote condemning them from the Riverside County DA, and I was thinking, "Motherfucker, I saw an off-duty cop fire either six or ten rounds at two innocent bystanders and a mentally ill man, and you didn't see fit to even charge him with negligent discharge of a firearm because all the Thin Blue Line jumpers would vote against you in the primaries. You may kindly go fuck yourself."

On second thought, 10% of Keith Richards money is still a fuckload of income

I often wonder if I'll run into Wes Scantlin at AM/PM some morning while he's buying vape juice or something. He seems like a pretty obvious candidate for the 951.

Except Keith Richards has the money to cover for his bullshit. I can't imagine that Pete Doherty's royalty stream for a handful of British hits is even 10% what Richards has pulled for the past half century.

Most of the great West Coast recording studios are dumpy little buildings in light industrial areas. Rudy Van Gelder recorded a pretty big chunk of the greatest jazz of the 1950s in his living room in a thoroughly unremarkable house in Hackensack, NJ.

BTW that Operators record is one of the year's best. It got a bit overshadowed but that's the story of Boeckner's and Krug's careers.

Yeah, this is Boeckner scratching his guitar rock itch after spending a year making epic synthpop and wearing Adidas tracksuits with his special lady.

I liked those special uniforms the Terrapins wore one year that made them look like they were participating in a Julie Taymor production of "Alice in Wonderland".
Goddamn, I miss Deadspin so much.

This seems to be a pretty common problem for indie labels, as the sagas of Lookout!, K, and across the pond, EG demonstrate. (EG was operating at a higher scale, but was still shafting artists on royalties to cover the personal expenses of the owners - in their case, obligations owed by the members of Lloyd's of London syndicate Marine 475, which included the owners of EG, following the Exxon Valdez disaster.)

The studio version appears on Relics. The version of "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" is exactly what psychedelic rock should be, Gilmour's guitar playing a variation on the riff comes in out of a swirl of organ, drills its way into your skull, and then explodes into wah-wah pyrotechnics.

The Gilmour and Waters suites on the studio disc are the only ones worth a damn. The live disc, on the other hand, is among the top five rock live LPs. Maybe even top three.

If you drill down into statistics on "racial resentment," which is the polite academic term because "racism" #triggers Trumpkins, white evangelicals are consistently the group displaying the highest levels in general and against blacks in particular.

Black evangelicals are a pretty huge group yet are almost uniformly Democratic, because they know goddamn well that the people in the white megachurches on Sunday morning wear hoods and burn crosses on Saturday night.
