going back in time musically...

what have i been listening to today?

LOTS of older stuff.

- Short Music for Short People: A compilation put together by my beloved Fat Mike. This is a great concept, have about 100 fucking awesome bands write songs that can last not much longer than 30 seconds long. It never ceases to amaze me how satisfying a song that short can actually be. It's a great release in a bunch of little packages. Bands on it include Bad Religion, Guttermoth, No Use For A Name, Black Flag, Green Day, D.O.A, Screeching Weasel, The Descendents, The Misfits, Jughead's Revenge, 88 Fingers Louie, NOFX, Rancid, The Vandals - okay, you get it, the whole fucking gang's here kids. And it's great.

- L7 - When you're a girl and you're angry, there is nothing better.

- Nirvana - I sometimes forget how much I loved this band when I was a teenager. I remember once being grounded from the television and my stereo and digging out the walkman I had when I was eight and keeping it stashed in my room so I could listen to the tapes of their albums late into the night. That walkman was sweet, it had a graphic equalizer and everything. It was a tough old bastard lasted until after I graduated from highschool. Downloaded a bunch of rarer stuff today. The song "Even In His Youth" still gets me to this day.

- Nine Inch Nails - 'Nuff said. Really. It just fit for what I was feeling today.

- Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton - Okay, it's not old and it's really mellow and beautiful. I just want to talk about it because it's really really fucking good. However, if you're one of my male friends, I don't know how likely you are to like this. Give it a try if you like Metric, Stars, or Broken Social Scene.

yup. that's it. just felt like sayin'.

Hey, just because I have a cock doesn't mean I can't listen to intensely sappy chick music ;)

I appreciate your sense of discretion ;)

On another musical note, have you heard Thom Yorke's album, The Eraser? It's become my latest drug of choice.
