jump song, calgary.

Straight from the gutters of Alberta:
by Ted Stenson

If I grew up in the 80's in Singapore and knew what was good for me I think I would have been a huge Van Halen fan. I guess they are doing a new tour with Diamond Dave. I just hope they come to Calgary and that the tickets are reasonably priced. Also "Jump" will make you better at basketball, just ask any of the people I fucking blazed in high school.

Van Halen - Jump

Michael Jackson - Who Is It

I need an accapella/beatbox version of this. Immediately.

dripping off.

Ted sent me this song a little while back. I had only heard a snippet before that, and as far as I knew, nobody had a full, clear copy. So, thanks Ted.

This shit is the official "The 90's Are Back!" jam.

So not mad at that. I actually was around for the 1990's.

My crew was very prosperous, the Yankees were gathering championship rings and The Nutty Professor was my favorite movie.

I probably would have hated Juiceboxxx though, it was all about Vol. 2: Hard Knock Life and It's Dark and Hell Is Hot. No room for ironic white boy raps. Oh how the times have changed.

Juiceboxxx & Dre Skull - Sweat

theme song status.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Another Day Full of Dread

Will Oldham has gone by the names Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Palace, Palace Brothers, Palace Brothers, Palace Music and Palace Songs.

When in a group with Matt Sweeney, they went by Superwolf.

When filling out his 1040 forms, Oldham is said to use the name Carlos Luis Jimenez.

That last part was a lie. Will Oldham is one of the best song writers living today. Not a lie.
(Johhny Cash would agree, if he wasn't dead. He performed Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's "I See a Darkness")

short cuts.

The original "Non-Murked" edit of this song runs at 8:23.
Imagine all of the shit that you will get done having saved like, four and a half minutes of what is essentially nothing/buzz/faintly distant clatter.

Artistically compromised for your pleasure:

Tones on Tail - Rain (Get Murked edit)

You are all so very welcome.

the first of the gang to die.

Hello children. This is the new spot.

Songs only.

Mostly stuff that you were all too lazy* to find out about.

Old things. New things. Borrowed and blue things. I figure that I'll sometimes write a lot. Sometimes just a photo and a song. Sometimes silence and a song. Because sometimes they're just better that way.

For now I'll be using Yousendit.

The B-52's - Give Me Back My Man

This is the inaugural jam. Enjoy seven minutes of fish and candy.

*By lazy, I of course mean that you (unlike myself) actually have a life to live.
