these girls fall like dominoes.

Camera Obscura 4AD labelmates The Big Pink have released a catchy single entitled Dominoes, the video for which was directed by Tim Saccenti, who has directed a video for Animal Collective (among others) and has taken pictures of artists such as Tricky and School of Seven Bells.

This song has been stuck in my head since I heard it a week or two ago. I hope you enjoy it.

the adventures of pete and pete soundtrack.

The Adventures of Pete and Pete was my favorite show growing up (still is) and one of the things that made it great was the music featured on the show. From the Polaris theme song to the interludes and songs played over the end credits, it was all top notch. Pete and Pete is the reason I discovered every group associated with Stephin Merritt and The Apples In Stereo as well as a host of other bands.

The wonderful soundtrack by Polaris, the Pete and Pete house band, is awesome and it is my opinion that everyone should own it. And, while Polaris was the house band, and their soundtrack is most important, there exists no collection of the other groups which contributed music to The Adventures of Pete and Pete…until now. Using the information available from Jeremy over at The Website of Pete and Pete I was able to cobble together a makeshift soundtrack using my playlist.

by the time artie began dancing the voodoo crispie…

Totally random post, my third of the night. The other two were more structured than this one, I’m just posting random bits now.

First, I wish more marching bands would play “Love Rollercoaster,” that’d be pretty sweet.

Second, this is a really amazing song and I adore Neko Case.

Third, Jay Farrar and Benjamin Gibbard are doing Kerouac.

Fourth, Living Color is back. (And no, despite what you may have heard, Corey Glover is not related to Danny Glover.)

Fifth, Strange Famous Records is serving up a heaping helping of mixtapes with B.Dolan’s House of Bees, Vol. 1 and Sage Francis’ Sick of Wasting available for download free.

the adventures of pete and pete season three.

The Adventures of Pete and Peteis the greatest television program ever. Ever. Of this, there can be no debate.

Season OneandSeason Two as well as the Soundtrackby Polarisare all amazing and I own all of them.

I don’t own Season Three. The reason for this is that it does not exist, Paramount has not released it…they may never. This is a crime against humanity.

Never fear. The power of the internet (plus reruns being shown on “The N”) have allowed the truly badass among us to upload episodes from Season Three to YouTube. Thank you to HeatherxChristine for uploading every episode from Season Three.

HeatherxChristine is my new hero. Bacon bless you, madam.

camera obscura obsession.

If you’ve ever read this site, listened to my radio show or know me, you know I love Camera Obscura. I just discovered a forum dedicated to the lovely Glaswegians and figured I’d post that, as well as links to all the other Camera Obscura sites so they’d be in one convenient place. (Especially since I’m quite lax these days about updating the links on my sidebar.)

Camera Obscura website
Camera Obscura on MySpace
Camera Obscura on Facebook
Camera Obscura’s old blog (The current one is linked directly from their webiste.)
Camera Obscura on Twitter
Camera Obscura on Wikipedia
Camera Obscura Forum

That should be just about it. Anything not found there should be easily accessible from any of those sites.
