I have to give props to Flash Forward for using one of my all time favorite Smashing Pumpkins’ songs in last night’s episode. It might not be their most well known track but it’s off the criminally underrated Adore, which is basically an album full of songs to listen to on a cold winter night. If you never gave the album a chance I recommend giving it another listen.
I’m still not sure if I love Flash Forward but man does that show know how to write a cliffhanger that makes me want to come back next week.
Holy crap, the grilled cheese truck is having a preview night this Sunday. You can sign up at the link above. Who knows what they’ll actually be serving but their website has me sold with mentions of The Cheesy Mac and Rib Melt, the Caprese Melt and a dessert melt with nutella and banana.
If you believe LA Weekly’s “reliable sources,” then yes, Thom Yorke and his new band, the one that features drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist Mauro Refosco, Chili Peppers bassist Flea, and longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, will be making their debut this Friday, October 2nd at the Echoplex in Los Angeles, CA.
it seems that the democrats have the 50 votes in the senate to pass a public option right? so shouldn’t they try to put it to a vote and then dare the GOP to filibuster the damn thing. Then they can say that the GOP is against the public option, something that at least 65% of the country seems to be for. it feels like such a waste to not bother putting something to a vote due to a fear of a filibuster. let a filibuster happen and then let the GOP suffer the consequences of filibustering legislature that is popular amongst the general public.
Most people really only talk about Stephen Malkmus in terms of Pavement’s songwriting, but let’s not forget that Spiral Stairs could write some pretty great songs himself. Kennel District has always been one of my favorite Pavement songs even if it wasn’t written by the band’s more recognizable frontman. Here’s hoping that SM let’s Spiral play this when they reunite next year, since this song will rank pretty high on songs I hope they play.
