Morning Mix 12/2/2009

Sausage Fest today:
  • Billy Liar - the Decemberists
  • Come Together - Spiritualized
  • Jackass - Beck
  • Morning Bell (version from Kid A) - Radiohead
  • Planet of Sound - the Pixies
  • Something So Strong - Crowded House
  • Slash N' Burn - Manic Street Preachers
  • Juicebox - the Strokes
  • Begin the Begin - R.E.M.
The Pixies/Crowded House back to back was an interesting change of pace. I think the Spiritualized song is the best song on this list, but Slash N' Burn is what got me interested in Manic Street. See the video below.

Morning Mix 12/1/09

First one of December.
  • Quick Canal (w/ Leatitia Sadier of Stereolab) - Atlas Sound
  • All of the Things That Go To Make Heaven and Earth - New Pornographers
  • The One Who Got Us Out - Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
  • Futures and Folly - Blitzen Trapper
  • Cracking Up - the Jesus and Mary Chain
  • High and Dry - Radiohead
  • Let the Serpent Sleep - Elf Power
  • Run - Spiritualized
  • In the Flowers - Animal Collective
The last song serves as a good reminder that year end lists are coming up. Animal Collective will likely be featured prominently. Here's Run, from Spiritualized. Originally released as the first song of the second movement of Laser Guided Melodies, it has also been released as a single in its own right.

Morning Mix 11/30/09

Post-Thanksgiving and ready for three weeks of work before I go home for Christmas:
  • Fall On Me - R.E.M.
  • Lovecats - the Cure
  • On and On - the Longpigs
  • Four Sticks - Led Zeppelin
  • Sons of Cain - Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
  • So Much - the Sundays
  • The Piccolo Snare - Super Furry Animals
  • Big Red - Frank Black
  • You're Not Very Well - Charlatans U.K.
  • Squint - Grant Lee Phillips
Maybe the largest concentration of "acts I've seen live" today. All but Zeppelin, if you give me credit for Frank Black, who I've seen with the Pixies. And not one song released this year. Which reminds me, year end lists start soon. Here are the Longpigs and Frank Black.

Cheatey Petey Shows His True Colors

Is there a bigger cocksucker in sports than Pete Carroll? Fresh off bitching about Stanford trying to hang 50 on him, he runs up the score with a meaningless touchdown in the final minute against UCLA.

If I were Rick Neuheisel, I would have called an out pattern on that last drive, and instructed my receiver to forget the ball and bury a U$C coach, preferable the cocksucker Carroll himself.
