Mike Nesmith “The Wichita Train Whistle Sings” LP. I really love this record. Original catchy pop done in a rockin’ easy listening style. He supposedly made this album as a tax write off rather than paying taxes. Maybe this was a protest record to the IRS for their continued nibbling at his eventual Liquid Paper inheritance from mommy? #LP #Vinyl #Records #MikeNesmith #TheWichitaTrainWhistleSings #TheMonkees #MichaelNesmith #Monkees
I loved The Three Amigos so much when I was a little kid. This is probably my favorite part, aside from the “My Little Buttercup” scene, but there are more than a few great bits in the film.
Back when I used to do my zine I got a CD to review from a post-hardcore band called Little Neddy Goes To War.
I’ve been seeing the 15 movies that have stayed with you thing floating around here and on Facebook and it got me thinking about 15 movies that have stayed with me, as it were. While this is generally a list of my favorite films, those are generally the ones that “stay with you” and have some impact on you aside from entertaining.
1. Revenge of The Nerds
2. Bedazzled (original 1967 film)
4. Back To The Future
5. Forrest Gump
7. Planes, Trains and Automobiles
10. One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest
11. Drop Dead Fred
12. High Fidelity
13. Harvey (1950 film)
14. Office Space
15. The Shawshank Redemption
Geez. I’m seeing a pattern of outcasts, manchildren, and loners. With that said, “Sling Blade” would get an honorable mention :)
Moondog playing some killer bass drum. Seriously though, I really enjoy this song a lot. I’ve actually remixed this song in my mind.
I used to own close to 2000 CD’s. I first started selling off my CD collection when I started Qua Records 10 years ago. Now I’m down to just 228. Most of which I am hanging on to for sentimental reasons or because there are really good liner notes or there is truly unique packaging. Ironically this past week a friend gave Nicole a two CD anthology of The Clean and I bought the Freaks and Geeks soundtrack/score.
I’m beginning to think that Arizona is like the shittiest place ever. It seems as though if you aren’t old, white, and republican that you aren’t welcome in their desert shit hole.
This is the only INXS song I can tolerate. Their big shit from the late 80’s was so overplayed that it burnt me out even as a little kid. This was not overplayed so much, and I actually forgot about the existence of the song for years until I heard it at the bakery a few weeks ago and was like “Oh yeah, this song is pretty alright!”
