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.
“LA Bread may have shuttered, but Atwater Village residents aren’t having to go far for freshly-baked baguettes and BACON SCONES. The Village Bakery and Cafe opened three weeks ago in the former LA Bread location on Los Feliz Boulevard.”—
I downloaded a couple of Them albums the other day and was blown away by how great Them Again was. Clearly Beck and the Dust Brothers were listening to this album a bunch in the early 90s since two prominent Odelay samples were taken from here (“I Can Only Give You Everything”/”Out Of Sight” = “Devils Haircut” and “It’s All Over Baby Blue” = “Jack-Ass”). Another highlight is “Hey Girl” which could almost heard as an outtake (or a precurssor) to Astral Weeks.
My Lonely Sad Eyes seems likes it’s a British Invasion ballad just waiting to be rediscovered by the masses and it’s a shame that I haven’t really heard this song until now. It deserves to be as well know as “Gloria” or “Brown Eyed Girl” (and it blows “Moondance” way out the water. Someone better send Wes Anderson this song so he can feature it his next film.
Holy shit, this is horrible and disgusting. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to listen to the Mamas and the Papas the same way ever again.
And Alex Leo is abolutely right, let’s not call it a relationship or as the People Magazine article states “Her sexual relationship with him had become consensual.” Incest is never consenual, and John Phillips is a fucked up guy who raped his 19 year old daughter when she was drugged out of her mind.
"Cameron explains that this "very special" edition of the "Origin of Species" will include an introduction explaining "Adolf Hitler’s undeniable connection" to the theory of evolution, and highlighting "Darwin’s racism" and "his disdain for women." Cameron’s edition also exposes the "many hoaxes" of evolutionary theory, while presenting a "balanced view of Creationism."
Someone better fly Alan Thicke in stat to have a heart to heart with Kirk about all the crazy shit he’s been up to the past 10 years. Or maybe this is just what happens why you let your oldest kid move in over the garage.
