They Live Inside My Head, They Come To Me In Bed

I mentioned a couple of months ago about my recurring dream where I’m in my last semester of college and I remember that I’m failing a class because I thought I dropped it, but I didn’t, so I have to scramble to figure out what to do. I have that dream once every few months. [...]

He Ain’t Been Right Since Vietnam

Time for a quick sample of some music I’ve been digging lately.
I clearly came late to the Josh Ritter party. I’ve been hearing about him for years now from various friends and I think I heard one song a few years back that I didn’t care for, so I didn’t give him another shot. Bad [...]

Working Remote

I’ve been using a universal remote for so many years now that I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have 5 or 6 remotes piled on the coffee table. There’s just no other way to do it. The remote I currently have works pretty well, but it’s one of those deals where you have to press [...]

Pranksters Curse Their Chickless Plights

Another recurring dream I have: I’m still in high school and for whatever reason, I keep forgetting my class schedule. I never know when I’m supposed to be in which class and I never can figure out where in the building I should. It’s a never-ending stream of running around trying to find my schedule [...]

Quiz, Part Deaux

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about Big Head Todd being an awful band in the studio but a very good band to see live. That is quite a rarity, because usually it’s the other way around. Which begs the question: what other bands are terrible in the recording studio, but very [...]
