Damn. I've got a nice post-election buzz going, and then I see that Pat DiNizio from The Smithereens has died. Dammit. Dec 12, 2017 at 10:53 PM

        Man, that stinks. Was it related to his recent surgery on his arm and hand?

        Not sure. Those guys were one of the best bar bands that ever "made it". And I mean that as a compliment, even if it may not come across. Just a real bummer to learn this news.

      I may be a homo sapien with opposable thumbs, but, I fall way back on the evolutionary chart whenever string cheese packaging is faulty.

        I feel like that opening a paper carton of anything, like milk. Like, as soon as I make that first fold/tear my brain just goes "uh-oh" and then it's all grunts and snorts until it's mangled.

      Just saw on Twitter that Cibo Matto are calling it quits. They weren't terribly active, but I thought their last album was quite good.

        I'm glad I caught them on their last tour in support of "Hotel Valentine".

        I saw them in Chicago at some point in the 90s. I can't recall with who though. I want to say maybe the Boredoms?

        I know "Viva! La Woman" gets all of the love, but, I've always enjoyed "Stero-Type A" even more. It's still a fun album to spin, and 'Sunday, Pt. 2' is absolute bliss.

      These mint chocolate chip cookies from Tiff's Treats are the real MVP.

        The guy behind the counter said they were going to have that flavor for a few more days. They have Andes mint pieces in them.

      Love this new Charlotte Gainsbourg record. Nice variety of sounds, and she gains more and more confidence with each album.

        I won a free copy of this and signed picture from a local record store not really knowing her music and I must say it's pretty catchy.

        I hear some disco era Blondie in places, which is cool. I was a big fan of "IRM", and this one is a nice progression from that record.

      Those images from the fires in Southern California are pretty frightening. Looks like Mustafar or something. #Nerd

      Kinda dig the new tUnE yArDs track. Sounds like the new record will have a decidedly 80's pop vibe.

      It's rainy, grey & cold (for central Texas at least). Gonna listen to some Scott Walker, Vic Chesnutt, etc to match the weather today.

        @kickerofelves I had the chance to see him years back at SXSW. Unfortunately, there were serious delays with the start of his performance, and I ended up having to leave to get to the next venue and stay on schedule. In retrospect, I wish I had just stayed put.

        Tilt. What a great album to listen really, really loud to make your neighbors get angry and/or scared.

      Eight months or so on, and Will Johnson's "Hatteras Night, A Good Luck Charm" is still in my top 10 for 2017.

      Sharon Van Etten's "Are We There" was the soundtrack to the drive home from mom & dad's tonight. Reminded of how staggeringly good it is.

      Always get a kick out of hearing Book Of Love's 'Modigliani (Lost In Your Eyes)' pop up in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles".

        @gouis Thanks for mentioning the feedback from, and @AndySlash Thanks for sharing it! We are aware of the tape issue, and we think they are using the first version that we had when we changed boxes, instead of the stronger version. Should be fixed for December more or less!

      Just now realizing that many of St. Vincent's Mixtape Playlists are on Apple Music. I should be set for a while.

      It's rare that I get tix to both nights whenever an artist plays 2 nights in a row, but a 2nd St. Vincent show on a Friday was too tempting.

        Yeah, it seems like 2016 was ultimately just an appetizer for the shitty entrée that is 2017.
