Heavy Rotation

  • The Clientele -

    The Clientele: God Save the Clientele
    I love this record with its rich pop melodies and guitar feedback. Might be a little mellow for the kids today, but give it a listen on Sunday morning while having your coffee and reading the paper.

  • The National -

    The National: Boxer
    These indie darlings are well worth a listen to.

  • Ted Leo and the Pharmacists -

    Ted Leo and the Pharmacists: Living With the Living
    Hmmm...only way to describe it is Black Flag meets UB40.

  • Ryan Adams -

    Ryan Adams: Easy Tiger
    The alt-country king returns with something fantastic. This is one of my favorite records of 2007.

  • Bob Dylan -

    Bob Dylan: Blood On the Tracks
    I was cleaning out my CDs and forgot that I had this. I could listen to "Tangled Up in Blue" all day. I think this might be my favorite Dylan album.

  • Tegan and Sara -

    Tegan and Sara: The Con
    Go get this record. Do not delay. Sleater Kinney I'm over you.

  • Josh Rouse -

    Josh Rouse: Subtitulo
    Humor me. Just go get it. Give a listen to "Given' It Up" and you will thank me.

  • The Sea and Cake -

    The Sea and Cake: Everybody
    These guys are awesome. I can't decide who is dreamier Sam Prekop or Archer Prewitt. If you are looking for something to listen to this summer, this is it.

  • Stephen Malkmus -

    Stephen Malkmus: Pig Lib
    How can you not love the smart ass lead singer from Pavement? "Vanessa From Queens" is my favorite tune on this whole album. This album is filled with hypnotic melodies and sarcastic lyrics. Fans of Pavement will not be disappointed.

  • Dinosaur Jr. -

    Dinosaur Jr.: Beyond
    J Mascis is back. If you are a fan of Green Mind you will love this record.

  • Marvin Gaye -

    Marvin Gaye: What's Going on
    I love this record from start to finish. With lyrics about drug abuse, poverty, and the Vietnam War, this album was an immediate sensation and has endured as a classic of early-1970s soul. Get the remastered version released in 2002.

  • Urge Overkill - Urge Overkill

    Urge Overkill
    Urge Overkill: Saturation

    An awesome Chicago Band from the early 90's. I used to go see these guys all of the time at Metro, Empty Bottle, and Double Door. These guys played all over the city for a year straight. Check out "Sister Havana" and "Back on Me".

  • The Shins -

    The Shins: Wincing the Night Away
    GO GET THIS NOW...The Shins will change your life!

  • Josh Rouse -

    Josh Rouse: Nashville
    Just simple dreamy lyrics- I love sensitive boy rock!!!! I put his songs on mix tapes for girls I am trying to woo.

  • Cat Power -

    Cat Power: The Greatest
    Some people think Chan Marshall is a mess- I find her dreamy. Go get this record listen to it, then listen to Dusty Springfield, and then finish the evening off with a good belt of whiskey. Call me in the morning and we'll talk.

  • The Hold Steady -

    The Hold Steady: Boys & Girls of America
    Paste rated this album #2 in their best of 2006. I gave them a listen off of that review and let me tell you they rock. What I dig most about them is the fact they sound like a drunken Springsteen. This album is loaded with a ton of heavy guitar riffs and lyrics you can't understand. RUN DON'T WALK to your nearest record store and pick this bad oscar up.

NICE NEW TEMPLATE!!! Was this a pre-designed template or did you design it? Either way, I really like it.

God as my witness, that pic of Manny and his Weber is going to be our Christmas card this year. The Geek won't object, even though he's Jewish and doesn't really go in for that sort of thing. The pic's just too good....hell, maybe that'll be the cover of our wedding invite if we ever do eventually get around to all that.

Aaaanyway....as you know, I've been wandering around, utterly bereft and somewhat lost, with a little stream of drool snaking down my chin, since my beloved Yanks went down in flames in four to your...ahem...."Tribe." (Baseball really does lag behind in cultural sensitivity, doesn't it?) Anyway, I digress. What I wanted to say was DIRTY CHILI-OVER-MACARONI EATING BASTARDS. But then, what the hell do you expect when nobody in pinstripes can seem to swing the bat and get a goddamn runner in scoring position, much LESS bring the poor guy 180 feet to the plate when they do? Christ on a crutch, they were just lame. And I'm not entirely sure Joe Torre ought not be at least encouraged to retire. Yes, I just said that. Just...the FUCK is happening with the pitching staff? And, seriously, these guys are getting a little long in the tooth, no? I mean, they'll need cans of Metamucil next to the bubble gum and sunflower seeds in the dugout in a couple of years. I love Jorge, Jeter, Matsui and even Giambi earns my grudging respect for how he handled his own personal doping scandal, but THESE. DUDES. ARE. OLD. And I should know. I'm older than all of them except Posada. *sob*

Let us not touch the A-Rod subject for the time being. I just...I can't right now.

But back to Manny....you know what? I love the guy. Love him. Yes, he looks like he sneaks out to the parking lot between innings and pries hubcaps off SUVs with his teeth, and one does have to measure his head for that odd dread-panty when requisitioning his uniform every year, but does any of that matter? No. The guy can play baseball. And, he shows just enough smirking, knowing contempt for the fact that he gets paid a fuckload of money to play a game with his every word and deed, which I love. AND, he does just basically whatever the hell he wants to do, secure in the knowledge that he can come back to Fenway at his leisure and begin hitting dingers and knocking in runs when he's done looking at shiny stuff. Actually, I don't love the guy - I want to BE the guy. Maybe it's all the same thing.

Anyway....thanks for the post and for digging up that pic. Shit you not, grrrl, be on the lookout for the card. And, yes, I hereby officially request a tee-shirt, size small.
