  • My wife and I completed our Dead Like Me re-watch with the movie last night. We remembered it being really terrible, and it's still not very good but still worth watching as a fan of the show. It's frustrating because it could have been a great deal…
  • LordBy said: This reaction is like banning all lettuce after an E.Coli outbreak, or banning all Mexican food because of a Hepatitis A outbreak at a couple of Mexican restaurants. Some folks are apparently using a harmful additive in some vap…

  • I love The Virgin Suicides Soundtrack for this by Air.  Also, total cosign on Godspeed You Black Emperor. Tortoise and Trans Am are a couple others. I also heard Dirty Three recently for the first time and they would fit the bill. In those sorts of …
  • cdrive said: Oh Roberta!  surfer blood covered Hey Sandy!  And Chad & Jeremy! And Box Elder!   I've got that one in my queue but I haven't gotten to it yet. I'm really intrigued. I liked their first record... shit that was almost 10 ye…
  • @blue_sleeve I really need to watch The Terror and Chernobyl. They're on the list, but the mood has taken us to lighter fare (that and I don't know how much by the name at least The Terror would appeal to my wife). I will say that directly for me an…

  • For what it's worth, we got a Nespresso as a household Black Friday gift to ourselves and it is wonderful. The coffee is just better that our Keurig was by a significant distance. The downside is that the coffee itself is more expense and a huge pai…

  • Oakland may be way better than the Angels at baseball, but the Angels are way better at saying they're from cities that they are nowhere near. So suck on that! The Angels are #1!* *in "longest distance from the city they claim to represent."

  • If anyone is inclined towards his type of stuff, I checked out the new(ish) Andrew Bird today and it's good. I dug it.
  • Darmock&Jalad@Tenagra said: Any Ween fans out there? I am constantly listening to their album Pure Guava. Them and the Pixies, Surfer Rosa. also, MF DOOM is amazing! I never went hook, line and sinker into Ween (as many of my friends …
  • Glad to see this thread and that people have been watching it. We watched it over the weekend and I really dug it as well. I totally agree with @blue_sleeve that this feels incredibly relevant now with the politics. Plenty of times where I felt pret…
  • Filed under one of the weirdest scenes to that I have imagined apparently happened next door in a tuxedo shop that my boss just told me about. The Man Trout and The Dude (Duder, His Dudeness, El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing) …
  • I've been listening to the new Fionn Regan record ("Cala") a ton lately. It's really good acoustic folk type stuff. Very pretty record. It's nice. I was worried after his previous record that he was moving into a more mainstream euro pop rock direct…
  • Sorry, but I guess I'm putting off starting work today. One more and I'll actually start working. Peak productivity scenario: Leslie as the boss. (for obvious reasons) Kenneth the Page - I think giving Leslie Kenneth might be the best gift that she…
  • I ended up going with this for sort of a good vibe/still get some stuff done balance: Ron Swanson as boss. He has no fucks to give which is nice. Plus he may bring in amazing BBQ occasionally, and perhaps kick me a $20 if he got some the night befor…

  • American Water sounds bitter sweet today. RIP DCB. After I give this a listen, I've built myself a pretty fun queue today with a bunch of new stuff. Andy Stack from Wye Oak has a solo record out under the name Joyero that came out today. Fionn Rega…
  • @Asherov Yeah, it's totally on the list. It's just a super long list. I'm super intrigued though and really look forward to getting around to it. My wife and I have been working our way through The Boys which is a lot of fun. Fun premise, good perf…
  • You know, somehow I've never really done the Gram Parsons thing. I'm sure I have but I can't recall a note (that being said, I thought I had never heard the Isley Brothers when in fact I had loved several of their songs for years while attributing t…
  • Yeah, I really liked season 3. Maybe not as much as 1 and 2, but it's definitely worth it. 4 made us flirt with the notion of jumping off, actually I think my wife did if I remember correctly, but I still think it was ultimately ok. I watched it and…

  • @cdrive I just don't think I'll ever love Kim's singing (aside from songs like Protect Me You and Doctors Orders where she utilizes her voice in a more traditional fashion, which is pretty fantastic when she does), but that said this shit is groovy …
  • cdrive said: The new Kim Gordon single....I like it a lot more than Murdered Out, which was still really good but a little bit of Gen X fan service sonically.  This new video is so cool too.  I see you Loretta Fahrenholz! Should I get into …
