    Tunesday Tunes on Inauguration Day

    Fun day in history. Man, I wouldn't wanna be President in these times! I have a feel that President Obama is gonna be looking a lot older this time next year.

    Me, I've been spinning a lot of Broken Social Scene the last week or two. I fell in love with You Forgot It In People, which was kinda their debut (though later the "real" debut from a bit earlier got a wider release) and it became one of my goto records. But for some reason, probably because I didn't want to chance spoiling that lingering charm, I never picked up the self-titled next one. And even odder (odder? is that a word? sure doesn't look right ), I actually bought that soundtrack to two chicks sipping coffee at Starbuck's by Feist a coupla years ago. Good for a few listens, but now retired to the probably never gonna play again pile.

    So back on track, I'm at the library a couple weeks ago cruising the stacks for some new reads, and before checking out with something new from (appropriately Toronto's own) Karl Schroeder and something else from Alastair Reynolds, I stopped by the rather pitiful picked over CD racks and spied the 2005 Broken Social Scene 2-CD set, so snared it and the rest is history. Took a couple listens to the main disc before it really started happening for me, but after that, I like it! Seemed kind of all over the place at first, kind of disconnected, but then it started to come together. Just got a email this morning that it's due back in a couple days, which means it was actualy about 3 weeks ago, think I'll renew. Fun album. The EP has some good stuff on it too, though I haven't begun to explore that one enough yet. Wanders around in some cool ambience, and then breaks into more familiar BSS sound. Guess I'll need to buy a copy now.

    Iíve changed my hairstyle so many times now, I donít know what I look like

    Couple of fitting songs for today would be:

    Ding Dong the Bush is Dead
    Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye

    Yep, ole big ears is gonna look like he is 60 in a year. I do believe its due to not sleeping the whole time in office. W looked just like his old man after a year in office. Hillary aged about 10 years just during the last year. Gotta be a killer profession until you leave office, then its all bon bons and oil profits.

    Spun Noble Beast on my way to work and Useless Creatures on the way home. Beast isn't quite as good as his last two but it comes pretty damned close. Still growing on me.

    Right now spinning:

    Some weirdo named HiFi made me a mix of Marshall Tucker and the Outlaws a loooong time ago. Thought I'd play at least the Outlaws in honor of Bush leaving. HooooRAY. Good focking riddance, you azzole.

    Loved the smattering of applause he got when Obama mentioned him.

    How's the instrumental disc? Kinda pricey for the pair, not sure if I'll get the deluxe on this one, but looks pretty cool.

    Right now spinning:
    Best album ever on some days around my playground. Hard to say exactly why, or why many think of it as one of their lessor achievements, but always does something good to me. Love the cool song descriptions on the back with the phony play times that Ira says were lifted at random from a book about the Blues Project, though once in a while they seem almost perfect, not random choices at all, especially for the last song "Blue Line Swinger", "Patterns Of Sound Are My Bag Right Now" ...

    5. A Few More Beats-And Maybe, A New Sound

    7. Waiting For A Break
    8. Sometimes, Not Often, You Start A Number And Something Miraculous Happens, And Then The Scene Is Beautiful.

    Got "Fox Confessor Brings The Flood" in my Tunesday machine for next week, another that some days just might be one of the best of this decade for me and many others. Everything's so easy for Pauline. Looking forward to the new one, one of the most anticipated for me this year. Have you heard any leaks yet? Or you might not be a big Neko Case fan, huh?

    Gawd, I love that disc. Nice choice, Mr. Davey Bones. And no, I haven't heard squat about any leaks.

    Silliest album cover ever, seems kind of strange after selling a couple hundred thousand copies of Fox Confessor to come back with such a cheesy cover, but maybe I'm just blind to current fashion. Or maybe it's just a joke and they will ship with a professional cover? Hehehe, Neko has a couple screws loose, but I do love her, and in any case, sounds like it'll be a good one. They released the single as a free download awhile back with the record company backing and making a contribution for each official download to Best Friends Animal Society to keep places like Pet Smart from mistreating puppies ... so it's available all over ... like at http://www.quarterlifeparty.com/wp-c...otta_nerve.mp3 ... nothing new or out of character, but nice to hear something new ... I'm a man-man-man-man-man-maneater

    It's good as background music goes but I say save your money and get the regular version. Oh, and check your PM

    Well well well...

    I was at work and was not going to watch the innauguration (I'm swamped, testimony due, etc...) but I got to thinking about my Mom and Dad and how he'd marched on Washington with King and was a grandson of a slave (he died at age 91) so I wrangled my way into a nice party at a friends house.

    My Innauguation day CD would include.

    "A Change's Gonna Come" - Sam Cook
    "People Get Ready" - Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions.
    "Get Up Stand Up" - Bob Marley and the Wailers
    "Amen" - Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions
    "Move On Up" - Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions
    "What's Going On?" - Marvin Gaye
    "Tribute to the Martyrs" - Steel Pulse
    "Amazing Grace" - Aretha Franklin
    "America the Beautiful:" - Ray Charles
    "Imagine" - John Lennon
    "This Land is My Land" - Ole Pete
    "We're a Winner" - Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions
    "The Times They Are A Changin" - Bob Dylan.
    "Fight The Power" - Public Enemy

    Case you haven't figured it out, you could rightly say that Curtis Mayfield wrote the Soundtrack for the Civil Rights movement. A vastly underated talent who transformed himself from "minstrel" tell of teenaged love to champion of civil rights to chronicler of urban decay and despair. You couldn't go wrong with the above.

    Looks good to me. Like any good American I have nearly all of those so I think I'll make a playlist and give it a spin.

    Yes, Curtis Mayfield is the man. His music exposes both that which is just and right and the dreaded underbelly of our culture...which is why "Pusherman" fits so well on the critically acclaimed, film noire Felony Boulevard Soundtrack...

    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"
