The Sunday Music Video: CocoRosie - Werewolf

I'll be honest, like anyone who preferences punk and post-punk, I'm naturally scared of all music trends developed after 1984. That said, this is weird and enjoyable and contemporary (as of 2007, anyways):

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, happy Thanksgiving to you. If you don't, happy Thursday to you. Here's a traditional Thanksgiving song for today:

The Sunday Music Video: Tim Fite - Big Mistake

No big backstory for this one. It just popped up on my ipod the other day and I'd sort of forgotten how much I like the song:

Hope y'all have been having a great weekend!

The Sunday Music Video: Johnny Cash - Wanted Man

It's been a Johnny Cash kinda day:
A performance from his seminal At San Quentin album, still probably one of my favorite albums of all time (my two preferred formats of it are the excellent multi-disc deluxe edition released a few years ago and the superb sounding Sundazed reissue of the original album that came out just a few weeks ago). "Wanted Man" was written by Bob Dylan for the Man in Black. Love it.

NEW BLAWG!

Hah, so regular updating didn't last long. I'll try to be back into the swing of things soon. Having some good conversations about anti-authoritarianism and movement building that may germinate into a post or two sometime in the future. However, I did want to plug a new blog I just started (so you can get in on the ground floor!). It's one o' them "high concept" blargs that's all the rage these days. And this is what it is called:

Music Uptight White People Complain About

That's right folks, it's a blog where I share the music that uptight white people have complained to me about playing. Where the complaint is remembered, I use direct quotes and I try to color the short tales of uptight white people being jerkfaces with my own short commentary as needed. So far, all upcoming entries are culled from personal experience - although I plan to set up some kind of submission process in the near future, otherwise I'll run out of material far too quickly - and I'm trying to shy away from the low-hanging fruit of roaming internet message boards because, well, that just seems to easy. It's more impactful if you realize the uptight white person in question actually saw fit to complain to the person playing the music (me) how much what they were hearing sucked.

Enjoy!
