Call me crazy, but A-ha's Take on Me has got to me one of the greatest singles ever. Seriously.
Okay, I'm a bit backlogged with these micro reviews, so let us continue, shall we...
I am trying to automate my RSS feed using Feed43.com. Up until now I have been hand coding my RSS using FeedSpring. However, FeedSpring is starting to crap out as my feed gets longer and longer. So please, update your RSS aggregator (Google Reader is the best) with the new URL: http://www.feed43.com/5185026116140505.xml
I'm doing some under the hood updates of this site (click the Quick Links title bar. Magical, right?). The first major change is an updated portfolio page. No, no new art—just a fancy new thumbnail browser.
My tribute to Planet Pimp Records has expanded! I finally got my hands on a copy of Neil Hamburger Pays Tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales. Read my insightful commentary and make sure to listen to the audio clip from side B. Prepare to shed yet another tear for Our Fallen Angel.
- Devo - Now it Can Be Told
- Despite being recorded during the waning years of Devo, this live album is actually pretty great. They even make the bad Total Devo tracks seem almost good.
- Devo - Smooth Noodle Maps
- Devo's last release is okay. I bit more consistant than Total Devo. But still nothing close to their glory days.
A little maintenance note here: I added a few links to the home page in the form of that quick links widget off to the left. If you click the bar at the top it disappears. Pretty neato keano I'd say.
Yesterday I came across this incredible Web log, Twilight Zone for Your Listening Pleasure. This guy posts tons and tons of great garage and rock 'n' roll records with large cover scans and links to the full albums in MP3 format. Usually, you just click in to the comments of each blog post and you are given a link the the MP3s in zip format. Cut-n-paste the link and you can grab the files for free. There is a limit of one package download per hour, but it's worth the wait to get your ears on some of these comps.
Happy New Year! My overview of my entire CD collection continues.
My overview of my entire CD collection continues. Lots and lots of Cabaret Voltaire!
The past year or so I have been an iPod owner and have not paid much attention to my wall o' CDs. Well, the same songs are popping up just a bit too often during shuffle, and I thought it would be a fresh change of pace if I started popping in a good old CD every now again. To make sure not to miss anything, I decided to pull the CDs down for listening in alphabetical order. I happened to be listening to Big Sandy and the Fly-rite Boys when I made this monumental decision, so that's where I started.
