I’m always surprised how easy Nicole’s earnings go in my lobe holes. It has definitely been over a decade since I actively wore anything. Oh well.

In my family there is actually a name for the face I am making. It is called a “Niki Face”.

Fugazi “The Argument” LP. The only Fugazi album I ever got to wait in anticipation for. I remember I got it at Shattered Records along with the 7” singles for the album. “Full Disclosure” is probably my favorite song that isn’t “Waiting Room”. This might even be my favorite album of their’s. I feel like all the different elements that made Fugazi great were fully fleshed out on this release. #LP #Vinyl #Records #Fugazi #TheArgument #Dischord #PostHardcore #IndieRock #GuyPicciottoIsBoyKimGordon

Murder City Devils “Empty Bottles Broken Hearts” LP. MCD are one of those bands I like more live than on record. I saw them in 2000 & 2001 and whenever I listen to their albums (which isn’t very often) I always remember that I like them because those live shows were so heavy and intense… all their albums have a few killers, but tend to drag, in my opinion. They should have just released 7“‘s exclusively and toured (which is pretty much what they did, I suppose). #LP #Vinyl #Records #MurderCityDevils #EmptyBottlesBrokenHearts #SubPop #Garage #GaragePunk #MCD

My buddy johnnydicfore became my 400’th follower! I think that is pretty cool!

Environmental Sounds: Nature’s Music… Recorded Live On This Planet! Not to be difficult, but where else would you record natures music? Side 1 is a thunderstorm. Side 2 is “wind in the autumn woods” whatever the hell that means. I put this on as reading music. #LP #Vinyl #Records #EnvironmentalSounds #NaturesMusicRecordedLiveOnThisPlanet #FieldRecordings #NewAge #Hokum

The file says 6/22/2003 which makes sense, as the reason I was on a roof was I was painting my parent’s house… back in 2003. You can tell it is an old digital photo. It has no clarity!
That terrifies me that that was almost 11 years ago. If I ever release my lo-fi album, maybe I’ll use this picture, as this was during the time I was making the basement rock…
The fact that it is Thursday has nothing to do with this post.

Dang…

You can tell how long it has been since I’ve sat at a computer by tracking back how far back I haven’t removed the tags from my instagram posts. Up till now, it looks like it had been about 3 weeks.

I want to be free!

beatmeupwithyourletters no, I have not. Is is compiled anywhere? I know he’s more jazz and modern whereas most of this shit that I pick up is through my wanderings. While I love it and enjoy finding it, it isn’t something I seek out… but I’d like to hear some of his Beatles stuff, so point me in the right direction.

@zombimanos I agree for the most part, though I always thought Mogwai were a pleasant, if not meandering band… but that is kind of why I wonder why I always come back to this album. Maybe because it doesn’t really make me think too much :)

Mozart “The Jupiter” & Symphony No. 40 LP. I don’t often listen to much classical in my personal collection. But when I do, it better have a cool cover and not be worth too much money… This was part of that oddball pile from the basement. Have been sorting a lot of low-end classical of about 250 pieces that I am probably going to start listing in the store in the next few weeks… but I’m hanging on to this cheapie.

Ambience 2: An Adventure in Environmental Sound LP. Found a small pile of oddball vinyl in the basement that I’d been meaning to bring upstairs and listen to for months. This is one of those pieces. Essentially these are field recordings. Side 1 is of a fire violently roaring in a beach house in Cape May, NJ. Nothing ambient about it. It sounded more like an iron foundry. After listening to the record for about 10 minutes while sorting the paper recyclables, I left to wrangle the rest of the garbage that needed to go out tonight. When I walked back into the living room a few minutes later to grab that bundle of paper, I’ll tell you what; damned if the room didn’t feel a little warmer and smell faintly of soothing wood smoke. Kinda freaked me out. Side 2 consists of nature sounds recorded in Woodstock, New York. Have yet to hear any hippies quietly chanting off in the distance. Mostly birds chirping and babbling brooks. It is making me have to take a leak. Side note: this is the second Audio Fidelity album played today. Weird.
