  1. Every wedding I went to last summer played a lot of oldies, which was good to get people on the floor, but they all for some reason chose to play the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin'" which probably not appropriate for a wedding, right? Don't play that song. Also, keep it upbeat. You shouldn't have to worry about any music for the dinner, people will just want to talk and visit. For the dance part, keep in mind that people are attracted to songs they recognize (Rebel, Rebel or any Stones song get my parents dancing far too easily) so try to be accessible.
  2. No, Axis is my fave also. I really love Castles in the Sand, but the whole record is stellar.
  3. I don't like BNL at all, however the set Steven Page did with the Art of Time Ensemble was fucking wicked.
  4. Definitely Day For Night. Most of their records have a hidden gem on them somewhere, but I can't say so for World Container. I loved In View...but that's it...maybe Family Band. I am however looking forward to the new record in April.
  5. It basically is, but everyone already knows he's crazy so there isn't anything shocking on it. I like a lot of the new songs on the dvd as well. Has anyone else listened to their new song 'FOL'? I kind of wish Billy would stop writing songs with titles like that (G.L.O.W., Mina Loy M.O.H.). You can download it for free from the Hyundai site because they used it in a Superbowl commercial, you just have to give Hyundai your email. I dig the song, though it's not as good as I wanted it to be.
  6. Oh Christy, I have Gish, Siamese Dream and Adore on vinyl. They are easy scores. Everything awesome is being reissued for more than it's worth but you can find good deals if you shop around.
  7. Hey here's a long shot: Does anyone have the Flashing Lights' "Elevature" EP from way back in 2000?
  8. Not really. This is Malkmus' fourth solo album and he keeps getting closer to embracing his own guitar godliness. It's more focused than a Pavement record could ever be, even Terror Twilight or Brighten the Corners.
  9. [hide_me]Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks - Real Emotional Trash (plus extras)[/hide_me]
  10. I'd like to get the Limblifter demo "Windmilling" without having to go through my old hard drive.
  11. Records I was really into this year: Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - Real Emotional Trash. The rest of the list is in no particular order, but this was my absolute favourite record this year. Deerhoof - Offend Maggie Martha Wainwright - I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too Hayden - In Field & Town DB Buxton Revue - No Refund EP Blitzen Trapper - Furr My favourite songs this year, again in no order: Smashing Pumpkins - Sunkissed/Superchrist Sloan - Cheap Champagne Deerhoof - Chandelier Searchlight Beck - Orphans/Volcano Cat Power - Silver Stallion/Song to Bobby Hayden - The Van Song Jason Collett - Brother Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - Out of Reaches/Walk Into the Mirror the Constantines - Our Age Hot Chip - One Pure Thought Weezer - Greatest Man Who Ever Lived Brendan Canning - Churches Under Stairs
  12. Saw it last night. Awesomely bad. Over the top violence. The best Punisher movie ever. Has anyone else seen this yet? "I want my applesauce back..."? seriously?! FUck yeah. AS we left the theatre my rooommate and I desperately wanted to fire guns. At everything. WAR ZONE 4 LIFE
  13. This looks like a bad '90s action movie in all the worst ways. How could anything be worse than the last one? I guess we'll find out. I admit that it looks hilariously bad, so that's a plus.
  14. "Recording moved back to January. Another month to kill. Can I go to sleep and wake up in the new year please?" Fuuuuuuuuuuck.
  15. I still listen to this record a lot. The standout track for me is "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times." Still, it's hard to get around some of the whinier vocal bits. Musically, though, it's fantastic.
  16. I'm sure it will be a regular old deluxe edition type package, but with the way Billy writes there is probably a lot of unheard (likely not good) material from the era. Not to mention any eps or demos from when they formed. I think it would be covering '88 to '91.
  17. Then aren't you lucky? There are plans for a Gish box set in the works apparently.
  18. I've been on a Siamese Dream kick all week, and it is gooood. My favourite record of theirs will always be Adore, though. So awesome. They have a DVD coming out in November focusing on the Fillmore residency shows they played last summer. It's a lot of brand new songs, but I'm most looking forward to seeing if the new members have any personality. Except for Lisa Harriton, the keyboard player. She's awesome.
  19. Universal is releasing the live record.
  20. If you can find the 2 disc version, get it. Disc 2 is grainy footage of the show plus other bits from the NY archives. This is one of my favourite albums of his.
