    Star Wars - Revenge Of The Slith! - A Review!

    PSYCH!


    What's the status of the latest CRV? Did I make the cut? Do I have to beg somebuddy for a copy?

    Anybody think that Modest Mouse - Good News is their best album ever???

    when the ocean met the sky.
    You missed when time and life shook hands and said goodbye.
    When the earth folded on itself.
    And said "Good luck, for your sake I hope heaven and hell
    are really there, but I wouldn't hold my breath."
    You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
    You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?

    The ocean breathes salty, won't you carry it in?
    In your head, in your mouth, in your soul.
    The more we move ahead the more we're stuck in rewind.
    Well I don't mind. I don't mind. How the hell could I mind?

    Well that is that and this is this.
    You tell me what you want and I'll tell you what you get.
    You get away from me. You get away from me.

    Well that is that and this is this.
    Will you tell me what you saw and I'll tell you what you missed,

    when the ocean met the sky.
    You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste the afterlife?


    from Ocean Breathes Salty

    I like it a lot, but not as much as The Moon and Antarctica, but with it's almost guaranteed that the first album I own by an artist is my favorite by that artist. Must be some kinda Freudian thing or something.

    Have you seen them live? Saw them in MTL last year and they were great, no sign of the unbridled drunkenness that Isaac Brock is famous for. They're coming back next month and I just may make the roadie, Wilco's playing just a couple days later, may have to make it an extended visit.

    No (unless you do, then Yes).

    Seriously, I do like it, but it for me it doesn't come close to Lonesome Crowded West or The Moon & Antarctica. "Bury Me With It" does it for me for some reason, though.

    Well fads they come and fads they go.
    And God I love that rock and roll!
    And the world will turn to flowing pink vapor stew.

    if you don't mind sending me a copy. I know I've been out 'o the loop on some of this stuff, but I will be back in the swing 'o things in the near future.

    Need my addy???

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    I'm sending out the first wave of 17 copies to all the people involved, and then one or some of them can do the second wave. I just saw that Sloshy offered to send out some copies in another thread so I'll make a post about it later and anyone that wants a copy can request it then. But I'll make sure you get a copy some way, Swish Baby! It's a fun comp with lots of potential for bone shakin'. Been playing it a bunch o times. Not perfect, and no one will like it all, but fortunately my fellow RR crew didn't let me down. Some very cool tunes here. Couldn't hope to present them all in the best possible way, and I apologize in advance to those disappointed with where their songs wound up in the mix, but I generally like the way it turned out, and you can always just put it on random play if you don't like the sequence!

    Color me...intrigued. Thanks for handling the thankless task of curating this beast, Davey. As for the sequencing, well, there's no place I'd rather be than lucky track #13!

    Yeah, probably (smilie), but it just wouldn't be a good reflection of your involvement without an m/k selection.

    Looks good Davey. A few songs listed that I can't wait to hear. And nice choice on that Rheostatics tune . Let's hope that Revenge of the Monkey! makes it to me a lot faster than my last package made it to you.

    you're not so bad after all! Hey, I'd be happy to copy and distribute too if anyone needs my help at this late juncture. I have some of the tunes already, but I'm intrigued by many of those I don't have.

    Hey, Mr. Maffable!

    Comment allez vous? I agree with you on Moon and Anarctica. One of my favourite albums by any artist.

    I did see MM at an outdoor concert at the Plaza of Nations a couple years ago when they played with Flaming Lips, Liz Phair, Starlight Mints and maybe someone else? It must have been during Brock's drunk-on-stage stage. But, even though the band was off, and Brock was screaming his vocals, the crowd was very enthusiastic.

    Of course, they were the last band to play, and they were in Vancouver, and based on the contact high I got standing at the front, its no wonder there were no complaints from the fans.

    Wilco put on the best live show I have ever seen. Hands down. They love performing and seem to appreciate and respect their audience. And Jeff Tweedy is really witty!
