  • Silly as it is, I'm really into the original songs from How I Met Your Mother at the moment. They just did a great job of executing what they were after. As much as I love the Robin Sparkles (feat. the Robot) stuff, I think the best one has to be No…
  • My lease favorite experience on the topic of dog vomit was this time roughly ten years ago when our dog got into the cat box (as she was want to do in her younger years). Anyhoo, later that morning I was taking her out for a walk through our garage …
  • Man, I totally forgot about that. I guess a couple of years go by and stuff slips. By all accounts he was super. That whole crew of people, and the one dude who knew him outside of it always said really wonderful stuff. I probably said this back the…
  • @cdrive Thanks so much for the heads up about the Beachwood Sparks release. I really dig them, particularly that first self titled record. Really, really fantastic. Working my way through it now and the new stuff is really good. Midsummer Daydream i…

  • They're religious so I left them out initially, but Sufjan Stevens made a really good Christmas collection several years back. I think my two favorites were... O Holy Night (I'm not a religious person, but I'm a sucker for O Holy Night. Just a beaut…
  • I endorse the entire Sia Christmas record from a couple years back.  The Community Soundtrack is on Spotify and has Sensitive Night I told you about this one on Twitter, but I heard it again this morning and it's just too goddamn good. Of Montreal…
  • Looks like Elliott Smith won the year. Not shocking. I was a little surprised to see the Rural Alberta Advantage come in second. They're great but I never would have guessed. Shearwater, Fionn Regan, and Sharon Van Etten rounded out the top 5.

  • CretanBull said: I didn't know who Kevin Biegel was so I clicked on his tweeter link and scrolled through his tweets.  I quickly found him re-tweeting Ice-T calling Geraldo Rivera "a certified dumbfuck".  I still don't know who Biegel is, but…
  • A_Ron_Hubbard said: I haven't seen Cougar Town, so I couldn't say. Does it... does it have Carrie Coon in it? Ha! Unfortunately no Carrie Coon. I wish she were, but not so much. Cougar Town is, in my book, kind of like throwing Friends a…

  • CretanBull said: What would the Beach Boys sound like if instead of growing up in Californian suburban beach bliss they grew dirt poor in dreary Scotland?  Like this... Great pull! Quality. It also reminds me of that great Yo La Tengo …
  • Right. Elliott Smith just kills that one! Totally pins down the spirit. I love that tune so much! Hell yeah, Stevie! That's one of those "can't help but start flailing around joyously" (you can't call what I do dancing)  tunes. Blew my mind the fir…

  • This is a wonderful thread idea. I love it! My all time favorite cover is Stevie Wonder doing We Can Work it Out by the Beatles. Better than the original in my book and I love the original. Cosign to the earlier post of Frank Black's Hang Onto You…
  • That's nuts that EVH passed. Seems like he's way too young. I was never the biggest Van Halen guy, but you can't deny the skill. Plus, I worked with someone who I guess used to hang out with him in his younger years and they spoke very highly of him…
  • This one shuffled up just now and I'm so pumped. Haven't heard this one in years and it's so goddamn good! FIREHOSE! EDIT: I know I've probably said this 100 times in here, but I totally love this Department of Eagles record, In Ear Park. I actual…
  • I feel like it has to be The X-Files. I remember how annoying it was that the videos only had a handful of highlighted episodes and being really excited that the whole season was available. Not 100% certain, but I'll lock it in.
  • @cdrive Trip out. I'm super interested to what these covers will sound like. Definitely going to be checking that one out. Thanks for the heads up, buddy!

  • Great thread idea, man! I love it! I'm going to let this stew for a bit before answering.
  • @Univ3rsalmind Nice! I'm really becoming more and more solid in the fact that he's the best songwriter I've ever heard. Giving a fresh look to some of the lyrics to the songs... damn. He was just a goddamn wizard. Such a gift for metaphor and analog…
