  • My wife stumbled onto #BlackAF and we watched all of it between two days. Super fun. Very charming and funny and also thought provoking and just a really good watch. My wife thinks it's the best she's seen Rashida Jones even though we've always like…
  • Have you ever had one of those initial listens of a tune/band where you find yourself swinging back and forth between thinking "this is really cool" and "I really think I hate this" almost from second to second? I'm hearing Pretty Girls Make Graves …
  • I was on a Zoom call for my brother in law (long, bummer of a story, but that's not the point). Anyhoo, his friend was on the call and it was called out that her album had come out that day and Jonathan (brother in law who is a photographer) had don…
  • Made a couple of mixes for driving (one day and one night) and they're coming out pretty good. One particular tune that hit me really nicely today was the Besnard Lakes' Chicago Train. Might have to block off some time to dig back into them today or…
  • Michelle said: Travis said: The Sadness Hammer is basically a big bum out fest. Ha! It sounds like what you've been hit with after you listen to Damien Rice's "O" album.   (Even though I love it ohhhhhh so much, it is a really sad …

  • @Garthgou81 I need to rewatch season 1 and do fear a little recency bias, but I think I liked season 2 even more. I did get SUPER into season 1, but man it gets pretty batshit in a really good way. I don't think you'll be disappointed. We finished i…

  • Ha! Bjork is for thieves. I love the Pearl Jam choice for the basement fight. That tune is bad ass.
  • The Sadness Hammer is basically a big bum out fest. Ha! Sadly Unknowns is basically a collection of bands that never really broke through. It'd mostly be in the indie/alt sphere.

  • I'm going to scrap the one that I made and move it out. I overthought it and where I'm going to keep if for my own purposes, I'd rather put something different forward. Anyone have an interest in any of the following themes I've been kicking around?…

  • Murderbear said: After talking about it yesterday, it's been stuck in my head. So, my answer is the Mortal Kombat theme. All of them. Every situation. Mortal Kombat. When I make up the playlist, I'll just put in the Mortal Kombat theme 22 …
  • That's awesome. Quality Raylan Givens feels like a really great fit potentially. I love it!
  • This is pretty cool. I think I'll build an overall playlist for these too. A lot of stuff I want to try out. @cdrive Hell yeah Islands in the Stream! The Springsteen with slow pitch softball feels good too. 1. Mowing lawn: Creedence Clearwater Revi…

  • Michelle said: @Travis I spent about 3 hours racking my brain to find songs to fit those questions.  I changed my basketball answer though - and for the Cotton Bowl one, for some reason in my head I was picturing the Hollywood Bowl.  So I del…
  • @Michelle Thanks for playing. It really is a lot of thinking. I tried to just do a rundown of the list and it was a lot (plus it felt like I was diminishing the fun of it just trying to "speed round" it), so I'm probably going to do a couple here an…

  • RyanReeseman said: I gave Ian Somerhalder a cigarette outside a bar in Atlanta like 12 years ago. Oddly, I probably would have internally geeked out a bit over Somerhalder. Ha!  I guess my two best answers for me are when both Sam Elliot …
  • Michelle said: Travis said: 1. Neil Patrick Harris - My Freeze Ray Sorry, the Neil Patrick Harris song isn't on Apple Music. The rest are added! @cdrive I added yours as well.  Playlist updated! Thanks for trying. For what it'…

  • Argh, on relisten the Elliott Smith tune doesn't work at all (too into it being a good song with a title that fit, forgot to account that it didn't work with the context). Fix coming tomorrow, probably.

  • Great stuff @cdrive! I dig that set of them. Dog on Wheels was my primary gateway drug into B&S! Also, nice to see Soul and Fire and Impossible Germany get some love. Coffee and TV also holds a very special place in my heart. Well played!

  • Michelle said: @Travis I’ll add them to the Apple playlist after work (5:00)! Thanks Michelle!

  • So, I'm still work-shopping it, and I feel like it's missing something, but I think it's a pretty solid draft.  I put together kind of a running story. It's a story of an anarchist scientist who unleashes a zombie virus onto the population and trigg…

  • Holy shit! The new season of Dead to Me is so good! 
  • @calebthrower Thanks for taking the time to do that, man. Very cool.

  • calebthrower said: It would be cool to turn this in to a Spotify/Apple Music playlist of Bald Move member favorites once we get more songs Yes, this! I'm not sure what the logistics are, but I think it's a really fun idea.

  • Fantastic thread idea. I love making mixes and get pretty giddy with excitement at the opportunity to put one together. Yay! I'm going to put something together tomorrow. The tunes I recognize from yours are fantastic. Love the Michael Penn choice. …

  • 10 albums that shaped my music life... Chronological (my favorite record by the act in question is in parenthesis at the end because it's rarely the choice): 1. The Monkees - s/t - my first record. first band I ever loved (same) 2. Paul Simon - Grac…
  • On my second run through of Ram by McCartney. Man, it had been too long. Early solo McCartney is so good.
