I haven’t run into Eddie Vedder yet. Otherwise life is going pretty well, I realized today that I now feel comfortable enough in Ballard to ride almost exclusively no hands and I just got hired at a really neat little restaurant that’s going to be trusting me to do a lot of really cool stuff and i’m really excited about it! But seriously, why can’t I at least spot Ed?
Alright internet/Tumblr. Here’s a monster of a question, because it seems like we’re all on a DRA binge these days let find this out. What is your least favorite Ryan Adams song? I’m going to hold back a bit and say off of major studio releases only.. no foggy (sorry!) or silly internet songs like ‘don’t comb the leprechaun’? But only monsters could not like that tune.
But still, sorry Ryan, they don’t all win. I’ll start, my least favorite is “The Sadness” off 29. I just can’t get into it.
It’s a bit of, what i’d call a ‘grower’ But I enjoy it. It doesn’t rank at the top of the DRA discography - but it’s a solid album. But Cold Roses is still #1 in my book!
tumblr, I need your help - Should I go see The Jayhawks alone, in concert on feb. 9th? They are playing at The Neptune here in Seattle and I haven’t anyone to go with. I feel like i’d be failing at life, failing at being a music nerd, and failing at life in the big city by not going. So, should I go to The Jayhawks concert alone?
The Clash continually went against the grain. They started every show with ‘I’m so bored with the USA’, and didn’t take kindly to fake music-biz etiquette and patronizingly stupid journalists. They were heralded as the exemplars of punk, who would deliver where the Pistols had failed, but they were more concerned with rubbing America’s nose in its own musical ignorance than sparking shock-horror outrage. If they did have anything they wanted to destroy it was Americas preoccupation with radio-friendly jock groups- ‘Every second we’re on the radio that’s a second less Boston or Foreigners’ said Joe. “
