Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Haven't listened to this yet, but there is almost no way they can suck as bad as the three bands to which you've compared them.  

The Plimsouls are the best of lot (certianly better than the other ones, though not as good as The Only Ones) in a post-Bob Stinson Replacements kind of way, but are pretty weak tea compared to Game Theory, Dream Syndicate and other bands of the Paisley Underground scene.

The Strokes are "pop music" in the sense that it is music that both fails to "rock" and aspires to popularity.  But no reasonable person would use the word "power" to describe any aspect of their Brooklyn Tom Petty schtick.  They suck.  

Here is some "power pop" that might have slipped under your radar.

The Go Betweens

The Clean

The Verlaines

The Dream Syndicate

Game Theory

The Chills

 

Big fan of these guys

Before I comment, is that yours?

 

No, wish it was.  In fact, I am putting in a new front lawn in a couple of weeks.  

We got some kind of ####ed up worms and some disease in the soil in several areas ...then some damn moles.  It looks like #### - and it used to look so good.  

Cracking open the wallet.

Be glad it's not yours, because it looks awful. They cut it all wrong, and - to steal a line from Darrell Green - did it "many-fold over".

Shows you how much I know about lawns.  You will have to come down and supervise my early care of the new sod.

I gave away my golf clubs. I just didn't have time to play enough to not embarrass myself (& and hold everyone else up). A kid in my office was all gung-ho about playing, so I gave them to him. :lol: He's got young children and hasn't used them once.

My oldest boy (8) always seems to be into older girls.  We're at a indoor Waterpark thing and he was claiming he was bored so the wife jokes that he should go find a girlfriend 

Comes back like 10 minutes later with some middle school girl with purple hair :lmao:

Let us all agree, on this day of our Lord, February 24, 2017, that the song "I CAN MAKE YOUR HANDS CLAP" is an abomination that needs to die by fire, AIDS and sneks.

Can I get a motion to approve?

Ooohhhh.  Hands.  I thought she was saying glans. Yeah, that's a terrible song.

Beer-bottling Day in Casa Uruk. Gonna cap 5 gallons of a Russian Stout (my brewing buddy loves it; I'm "meh") and 5 gallons of some other damned thing I chose - some kind of ale, I think. Plus, the Belgian Tripel we bottled a couple of weeks ago should be ready to drink, so I'll likely be drunk by 9 (as opposed to 10 on a normal day).

I didn't say that, nor do I think that "sophomoric" is necessarily a pejorative when it comes to rock music. The Ramones, The Modern Lovers, and about a hundred other great bands could accurately be described as "sophomoric". I was summoned, like a malevolent spirit of snobbery, to a post about the Plimsouls.  And lo, I find them boring as hell, which I didn't really think was a controversial opinion.

I listened to your 2017 playlist.  I'm not into Dirty Projectors, Elbow, Japandroids, and a bunch of the other stuff.  But Sleaford Mods are awesome (and playing Seattle soon!), the new Slowdive record is everything my inner mope hoped it would be, and PILE are one of the best bands on the planet right now.  So take it eas'.

Also, if your nerdery can't accommodate The Flying Nun back catalog, you seriously need to have it recalibrated before they kick you off of the Numero Group e-mail list.  

Also, I just heard the debut record by OUT, and it is really good.  In the Drive Like Jehu-Unwound-Monorchid spectrum.  You'd probably really like it. I heard a couple of people compare it to Lungfish, if that kind of stuff turns yer crank.

OUT--Swim Buddies



 

that's a catchy tune :thumbup:

Never. Every long race I've ever run has a beer garden at the end. For good reason.

Hell, I've never run a race that didn't give me a beer afterwards.
