2013 was a good musical year for me: I saw the Residents, saw "Einstein on the Beach" (more on that later), this blog continues to get more popular (the Eno and Lou Reed posts in particular really blew up) even as other great music blogs sadly fell by the wayside...but Rapidshare and Mediafire knocking my stuff off-line wasn't exactly a cherished memory. More re-up requests back up:
- Christmas may be over, but isn't any time of year the right time to listen to the flatulent sounds of pot-bellied pigs "singing" christmas songs?
- music from the 1962 Seattle World's Fair.
Something old, something new: a funny, well-produced parody from San Diego comedy-rockers Pony Death Ride that skillfully references numerous Smiths standards (the strings at the end are a nice touch); best appreciated by those of you who have the Smiths catalog burned into your brain from adolescence.
"I Think My Boyfriend's Gay For Morrissey"
Who knew there were so many anti-Smiths/Morrissey songs out there?
