An Evening With Kevin Smith. I listen to it every night before I go to sleep when I'm in Sunnyvale. Either him or Chris Rock. I need to have some sort of noise when I'm sleeping, excluding the fan which is always on. I should probably ween myself off these habits, since they're jacking power and all.

Bill Hicks clips on Youtube.


What a genius this man was, and what a shame he left so early.

Re-listening to "Death Magnetic" by Metallica. I have COMPLETELY forgiven them for the mess that was "St. Anger". "Death Magnetic" is top-notch, honestly I think its some of their best stuff. Its gritty, hardcore music that's what made them special back in the 80's. Favorite track by far is "All Nightmare Long", followed by "That Was Just Your Life". "Suicide and Redemption" is an excellent 10 minute instrumental. I love this CD, and I think the last CD I loved by Metallica was the "Black Album"....which was almost twenty years ago. Wow.

Hail To The Thief by Radiohead. The album got played maybe five times in 2003 and collected dust until a week ago. It seemed like an easy album for them when I heard it; so many of the songs were just barely written and half-ideas were stretched to 4 minutes. I must have been full of shit for that week because it's a great record.

I've recently gone on an Indy music expedition. I would look into these if I were you -

Illinoise - Sufjan Stephens
Summer In Abaddon - Pinback
Hope for the Hopeless - Brett Dennen

Im also addicted to the album A Ghost Is Born by Wilco. I have yet to find anyone else who agrees with me.

I like A Ghost Is Born.

I'm currently listening to "Dark Was The Night", the latest Red Hot charity compilation record. Some good stuff on there.

Korn - Innocent Bystander



The only good song on their latest album, I actually like alot of it, although Korn's expiration seems to have been reached a few years ago.

I love A Ghost Is Born. But I agree, most people seem to dismiss it.

Good album, no doubt. After Yankee Hotel Foxtrot people were expecting to hear something either similar or wildly different, I suppose. The only problem with the album comes in two parts: "Spiders (Kidsmoke)" and "Less Than You Think". The first one of the two seems way, way too easy for a band this talented. The second one ends with over 10 minutes of migraine-approximating tones. Both are too indulgent. Anyway, it's what I'm listening to now.

Next up is Of Montreal's Hissing Fauna... just as indulgent as Wilco's biggest efforts but far more entertaining.

Hissing Fauna is one of my favorite albums from the last decade.
Skeletal Lamping is the difficult one.

Difficult but DAMN if it doesn't contain some of his best ideas all diced up, blended together, and spit back out as a genuine companion to Abbey Road's second side. It's an entire hour of nothing but Abbey Road's second side for the love of cheese. Pitchfork gives it a negative review and all of a sudden the kids turn against it.

Now playing: The Hazards of Love. Remember when The Decemberists were really, really good? It's getting fainter for me but, regardless, a genuine thanks to iTunes releasing the album 10 days earlier than they were supposed to.

I would love Wilco so much more if their existance didn't mean the destruction of Uncle Tupelo.


Nevertheless, I really dug their mid-90's work, especially 'Being There'.

Blitzen Trapper - Furr

And I love Wilco - I saw them open for Neil Young in December, and although Neil was awesome, I thought Wilco was the better band that night.

Slipknot - "Volume 3 - The Subliminal Verses"

Say what you want about the creepy masks, the chaotic mess that was "Iowa", and the weird lyrics, this album is golden. A beautiful mix of heavy metal meets melodic alternative rock, with a Grammy winning single ("Before I Forget") and arguably one of the best songs of this decade in my mind ("Vermillion", the gradual tone change, to the smash ending). Maybe I overrate them, a lot of my friends say they suck because the guitarists just use effects. It still takes talent to do that. That said, they scare the hell out of me whenever I see them in costume, but musically, especially this album, extremely talented.

I recently listened to Fall Out Boy's, Lily Allen's, and Kanye West's new album. Saying Fall Out Boy is good will probably ostracize me from the board, so I'll leave that one alone. Lily Allen I'd like to listen to again, because the only notable track at the moment is Fuck You. That one's funny. 808s and Heartbreaks has a few good tracks, but is by and large not impressive. I admire him for doing something different, though.
