This is one of my absolute favorite songs of all time. To preserve its sacredness, I have it marked as “Holiday”, so it doesn’t go into the daily mix (of more than 10k songs, not sure what I’m worried about). But I could listen to this over and over and over. On one level, it … [Read more…]
I have a playlist called “Holiday” that contains 379 songs, including a startling number of “O(h) Holy Night”s. One of the things I miss the most about Christmas with my family (probably the only thing, really), is singing. I remember harmonies and piano accompaniment and Spike Jones. Now, I play holiday songs in my car … [Read more…]
For some reason, songs about madness are all the rage in my head lately, and this release from Who Killed Amanda Palmer? is no exception: And because I’m a nice guy (or because the Internet makes it so easy), here are the lyrics: My friend has problems with winter and autumn. They give him prescriptions … [Read more…]
Tori Amos is a perennial fave. Bonus points for her friendship and collaboration with Neil Gaiman.
Because every day is Japanese pride day for me, I wanted to share two of my favorite pretentious indie rock bands with Japanese lead singers: Band: Enon Lead Singer: Yasuda Toko Song: Mikazuki Band: Blonde Redhead Lead Singer: Makino Kazu Song: Misery is Butterfly
Gah! It’s already nearly 1600 and we don’t have a Music Monday! I’m sorry, dear readers, clearly I’m distracted :-p (I usually prepare them weeks in advance). I just discovered this, but it’s in no way new. I keep a list of “Songs To Get” (Apple Mail’s Notes? le awesome), including “Sisters are Doin’ it … [Read more…]
I’m sorry I’ve not been posting recently, law school has finally caught up with me and consumed my life. I had to cancel the event that makes the holidays bearable for me (a goose-filled gamer fest) because I simply hadn’t the time to prepare and plan it. One of the prospective attendants told me that, … [Read more…]
This is from years ago but truly, absolutely worth it: Lyrics (and, if you follow that link, here’s the final frame)
(even when I’m a dorky Christian rocker) This is an absolutely priceless vid from the—oh, what would you guess—the 70s? I’m trying to extrapolate from the hair, the instruments, and the pants. Could be the 60s. Or who knows, could be last week and the band members simply live in a Christian time warp (they … [Read more…]
I’ve held off for as long as I could bear to, but it is now time to release this upon the MoF community. From the guy who brought us the classic office zombie song, Re: Your Brains and the classy May Day song, First of May, comes the geek classic Still Alive, the end-credits song … [Read more…]
an awesome vid & song: Politicians that can give me hope. Music that can give me hope. Maybe this country is going somewhere good.
This is from one of my favorite bands of all time, the punk trio, Sleater Kinney. They were part of the riot grrrl movement of the 90s (Bitch, my favorite feminist ‘zine, also came out of this era). The video does little justice to their talent and incredible energy. I had the good luck to … [Read more…]
