I felt that way most of the week. Things have only slightly improved.

1. Expecting - The White Stripes (what exactly?)
2. The Last of the Famous International Playboys - Morrissey (should have been a Bond theme. Ok, maybe not)
3. Give it Up or Turnit a Loose - James Brown (as expected, the lyrics don't go much beyond the title, but they got the groove)
4. Embassy Row - Pavement (I caught S. Malkmus' show a couple of weeks ago - there were moments of excitement, but overall it wasn't particularly captivating. It lacked the unpredictability of a Pavement show, and didn't make up for it with any added professionalism.)
5. Intergalactic - Reuben Wilson (do they still play musak in supermarkets? As a kid I always hummed along while shopping with mom. Not too loudly though.)
6. Four Hours in Washington - M Ward (I've felt like this many nights)
7. Leif Erickson - Interpol (somehow Interpol works better on the late night ride home from work)
8. Haunted Man - Rod Picott (I was introduced to Picott by a college radio station I listen to while driving to my parents' place in Pennsylvania (91.9FM and www.wnti.org). Some of their shows are great, like “Mozart to Motorhead”.
9. The Face of the Earth - The Dismemberment Plan
10. Kaya - Bob Marley

Disappointing ending. Disappointing 10 overall.


You'll find no argument from these quarters. Doolittle still gives me chills. There is simply no better Pixies album.

This was a great summer shuffle on MY ugly subway commute. (Note I usually only get through 4-5 songs on any one leg of my commute, oh but not yesterday!)

1. Faith Healer - Big Dipper
2. Hot Summer Nights - The Harmony Rockets (Charlie, Stephen & Randell from Scruffy!)
3. Complications - Killing Joke
4. Yes - Morphine
5. Travelin' Band - CCR
6. Bad Connection - Yazoo
7. We'll Meet Again - Byrds
8. Second Guessing - REM
9. Radio, Radio - Elvis C
10. Get It Hot - AC DC

and because it was (1)an 11 song commute,(2) sort of comical as I exited to the street and (3) and because despite our dealings with T.W.S.A. Agency, Figlet & I will soon be a family of 3...

11. Beginning to See the Light - VU
