ALL I WANNA DO IS POST SNOWBIRD BY ANNE MURRAY AND SPOTIFY WON’T LET ME!
I installed the program 9/1/11 and have never had any trouble. Nicole logged me out by accident yesterday and now it is being a turd.
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to “Candy”. One of the few pieces of proof that Dave Grusin ever did anything edgy. The psychedelic freak outs he composed for this album make me think he knows a thing or two about doing speed with a biker… this is a really wicked soundtrack full of instrumental psych that is a fun listen in my opinion. #LP #Vinyl #Records #OriginalMotionPictureSoundtrack #Candy #DaveGrusin #TheByrds #Steppenwolf #Amphetamine #Speed #Soundtrack
Jerry Reed “Cookin’” LP. I listen to this whole album once every year or two, hoping to hear something that makes me understand it. See, I picked this album up about 12 years ago and instantly fell in love with the album opener “Turn it Around in Your Mind”. It is one of those songs that I could listen to on repeat for an hour or two. However, the rest of the album doesn’t impress me. It isn’t bad by any means, but it was like he shot his wad on the first jam. However, so far side 1 is sounding better tonight than it ever has, so that makes me happy. Either way, it is an album worth picking up as it is solid hybrid country/rock from that special time in American music when such a thing was not just a marketing ploy. #LP #Vinyl #Records #JerryReed #Cookin #Country #CountryRock
Tiny Tim “God Bless…” LP. As a kid Tiny creeped me out and I thought he was a pervert, what, with his odd mannerisms, dress, and that voice! Marrying little girls on Carson. I sort of hated him for a long time. Then in 2009 I bought a giant collection and I found this mint copy and decided to sit down and give the album a truly honest listen. I found the production fantastic (an early Richard Perry job) and liked the arrangements/use of electric bass and occasional fuzz guitar. Over the past 5 years I have grown to love this album immensely and truly respect the entertainer known as Tiny Tim. He was a unique character. Also I’m pretty sure “Stay Down Here Where You Belong” was the basis of the film “Little Nicky”. #LP #Vinyl #Records #TinyTim #GodBlessTinyTim #TraditionalPop #Americana #PopPsych #Pop
Teenage Fanclub “A Catholic Education” LP. I love this album so much. “Everything Flows” is such a great song! It announces their arrival. Think Steven Malkmus listened to this album much? I miss the days of being able to stumble upon gems like this in the used bin for $5. #LP #Vinyl #Records #TeenageFanclub #ACatholicEducation
Nine Inch Nails “Pretty Hate Machine” LP. This is an original press/promo and it is pressed on virgin vinyl and sounds gigantic. I have to admit, I probably haven’t played this album in over 10 years. I listened to a lot of NIN back in the day, but I’m glad I put this on tonight. Enough time has passed and I’m enjoying this immensely right now. #LP #Vinyl #Records #NineInchNails #PrettyHateMachine #NIN #TrentReznor
Constantines “Shine a Light” LP. Overrated semi-boring indie rock that is just gritty enough to keep my attention when I get an itch to put it on. Got this as a promo when I was a part of Sub Pop’s street team back in the day. #LP #Vinyl #Records #Constantines #ShineALight #IndieRock #SubPop
You can tell this picture is old because I am wearing a wrist watch. Who wears wrist watches anymore? I think I was 20 when this was taken, as we were in Toronto so I was legal to drink there and this is documentation of my first legally consumed drink in North America, some time in the summer of 2002.
So Nicole is studying for her social workers licensing exam on Wednesday and has ordered me to stay out of the house for as long as I can while she studies (she was studying for over 14 hours today!!!) and lucky for me, it looks like a time consuming project has presented itself to me. I am thankful for this.
With that said, I need to go to bed. I gotta be up for work in 6 hours. I need my sleep, folks!
