best week ever? um, no, holden mcneil.

It’s been kind of a fucked up week…quite uneven. I’ve been sick as hell, Camera Obscura’s new record My Maudlin Career started streaming a week before it’s release date on Monday night, which was awesome. I’ve been listening to it pretty much constantly since then. I got an e-mail today from 4AD, Camera Obscrua’s record label, that there was something amiss with the vinyl mastering so the pressings were delayed and would be shipped late. Kind of a bummer except that they e-mailed me a digital copy of the album so I actually get it early. Nice!

I probably failed a Spanish exam earlier today which sucks but I had a fairly good show though the weather was too nice and I was in too good a mood, despite failing el examen de espanol. Played some stuff of the depression playlist but I just don’t see myself doing the show now. As we approachTake Back The Nightkeep an ear out for the Uppity Women show I’ve been planning for a while.

Last night: Pittsburgh 4 – Philadelphia 1. Wooooo! I love the playoffs.

Here’s a few things before I go.

She & Him 7″

Beatminerz Radio

Music Loving Babies?
Personally, I had my son listening to The Ramones in utero and to this day he loves them, along with the Sex Pistols, the Clash, The Stray Cats and all manner of other music. He has an original pressing copy of Rocket to Russia waiting for him on his 18th birthday. I remember when he was a tiny, tiny baby and I used to hold him and dance to that album and he would fall asleep on my shoulder.

And now, Velocity Girl.

wicked awesome update action.

I’m going to start doing some theme shows, if you have a theme you’d like me to do, e-mail me, post it in the comments, whatever.

Upcoming themes are “Depression’s Got A Hold Of Me” (that’s a Black Flag lyric, in case you didn’t know) and “Uppity Women Unite” during which I’m going to play some of my favorite female artists in honor of Take Back The Night. Sadly I won’t be attending the pre- and post-TBTN festivities this year because, gasp, I have to work.

In other news, there is such a thing as canned bacon. When the baconpocalypse comes, you know what I’ll be scarfing.

Watched the film Smoke Signals in my Fiction Into Film class and it is an awesome movie. The screenplay was written by Sherman Alexie, based on his collection of short stories, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven which everyone should read inmyhumble opinion.

I’ve been listening to The Shins Chutes Too Narrow and The Strokes Room On Fire albums a lot lately. Don’t know why, exactly. Also, I’ve got some Bhopal Stiffs coming in the mail soon so expect to hear them on my show at some point in the near future.

I’ve become obsessed with the Fiery Furnaces so, more than likely, you’ll be hearing some stuff from them, also. I want to play their entire Blueberry Boatalbum but I’m pretty sure I’m not going to subject people to that. Mad props to Jeph Jacques, who writes/draws Questionable Content for referencing the Fiery Furnaces in a few of his comics and getting me into them. They’re still not as awesome as Camera Obscura, who, incidentally, have a new album coming out on April 20th.

Here’s the title track:

That’s your wicked awesome action update for now. Stay tuned for more bullshittery and bacon-flavored madness.

I leave you with 4 Gregs. Enjoy!
