Random notes

This was originally a post bashing the ever-living hell out of Savages and Jimmy Eat world, but I'd rather let brevity be the soul of wit, and just say that they both suck, and I want the time I spent listening to their latest releases back. One more sentence on them, then on to better things: Who thought it was a good idea to have a Butch Siouxsie (Savages) and a Femme Tom Petty (Jimmy Eat World) ?
I'm still not on Twitter, exactly, and my facebook profile is still mainly a place for me to "dj" cool youtube music videos, but I feel like I'm finally coming into the 21st century with my little Roku box. I am mastering Plex and finding that I prefer the interface of Hulu plus and Netflix to my regular TV remote.
I'm not a huge T shirt guy, but if you want my picks for the best T shirts- it's Jon Wye  ( he also does great belts and cuffs) Tina Seamonster ( who also is my greeting card source) Shirtkiller and Nikholmes
I don't own them yet, but here are my three picks for the prettiest guitars out there, right now: The Talman ( shown as a righty, but available as a lefty. I'm a lefty) The Douglas and the Eastwood . Yes, I do like guitars. If somebody gave me 500 bucks out of the blue, I'd buy a guitar, but I'm certainly not expecting that.
Anyway, I'm going back to listening to Baroness, Coliseum, and Roomrunner for now ( Again, Baroness is a must-see live, I don't care if you're not into their CDs, Coliseum is a great band, full stop, and Roomrunner is some of the best new music I've heard. They're like The Jesus Lizard runs into Nirvana { yes, I know they hate the comparison, and it's not exactly true, but I don't feel right about saying what I was going to say first- the Pixies, because Roomrunner have a much heavier touch than the Pixies})


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Savages are rubbish.

    1. I don't know if rubbish even covers it. Utter, complete shit seems closer....
