9. Jan. 2010, 18:28 von ChumsiclesFri 8 Jan – Sonic Youth, Sic Alps
Well this was certainly the calmest show I've ever been to (outside of Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones). The crowd was a bunch of indie stiffs with horn-rimmed glasses and beards, and all they could muster was a simple head-bobbing all the way through (notable exception being the pit during the 1st encore when they played "'Cross The Breeze"). I didn't even sweat! Though at some point some guy was crowd-surfing.
Opening band Sic Alps were boring. They just seemed like a Sonic Youth ripoff to me. But I guess that's appropriate.
Before the show started, me and my friend were standing in the lobby when we happened to notice none other than Lee Ranaldo standing near the entrance talking to some dude! I didn't say anything to him though.
The setlist was kinda disappointing, with only a mere 16 songs. They played all of their new album The Eternal except for "Thunderclap for Bobby Pyn". …

This journal entry will take you to places where you haven't been to in at least two weeks. Let us conclude the pre-beginning, and resume to the beginning.
The Wiggles were last mentioned in a journal back on the 23rd of September, 2008. In order to honour their contributions to childrens music, I will salute them here. I've been listening to two of their records recently, The Wiggles Go Bananas! and Sing A Song Of Wiggles. Both are very solid, great music and lovely vocals. Only thing that detracts from the experience is that the band are doing lots of cover songs, rather than pumping out the originals. Highlights include:
"Monkey Man (feat. Kylie Minogue)"
"Sing A Song Of Sixpence"
I particularly enjoy Carolyn Ferrie's (otherwise known as the voice of Dorothy the Dinosaur) singing here.

9. Elliott Smith
How many times have you listened to number one?

Is this your favorite artist?
I would of said Elliott Smith or Sonic Youth, but Air are definitely one of them
What got you into number one?
My friend randomly gave me Moon Safari and I was blown away in a gentle breeze. La femme d'argent was one of the best things to grace my ears on first listen.
Why the hell have you listened to that so much?
They're literally easy to listen to. I can just stick them on any time and relax and enjoy.
Favorite songs of number one.
Ce Matin La, La femme d'argent, All I Need, Kelly Watch the Stars, J'ai Dormi Sous L'eau, Mer du Japon, Mayfair Song, Lost Message, Run, Universal Traveller, Alpha Beta Gaga, Californie, Modular Mix

4. Feb. 2008, 22:34 von wsmartI recently picked up Daydream Nation, an album that has been on my "to-get" list for quite some time. The buzz surrounding the album is kind of hard to ignore, and it's considered such a landmark in "alternative" circles that when i saw the special deluxe 2-disc edition release, I acted on impulse(despite the damage to my wallet).
After listening a few times through, I just wasn't getting into it. I have always liked Teenage Riot (who doesn't?), and The Sprawl has become another SY favourite, but I find the rest of it...not sure. I like it well enough, but I guess maybe I'm missing something. Perhaps it's one of those things like the Berlin Wall - I wasn't alive at the right time to really understand the spirit of it, why it's important. Anyway, it's still a good album, just not my favourite.
The other side of getting Daydream Nation is that it's rekindled my love for EVOL, which has been my favourite SY release since I picked it up with Dirty on the back of the whole grunge thing. …
6. Aug. 2007, 23:10 von redhaloI went to my dashboard and was pleasantly surprised to find all 15 of my friends just listened spots occupied with "just listened". First time I'd seen this in the year that I've been here!
They have been chosen as contestants in my 10 Tracks contest.
Fear not there is no physical activity on your part involved. All you have to do is hope the first ten songs played on your radio score enough points to achieve the highest score.

Artists that appear between 1 and 100 will be given 10 points
Artists that appear between 101 and 200 will be given 7 points
Artists that appear between 201 and 300 will be given 5 points
Artists that appear between 301 and 400 will be given 3 points
Artists that appear between 401 and 500 will be given 1 points
Artists that do not appear on my list will be disqualified and not eligible for any points whatsoever!
However, I have captured a list of bonus artists/song (by any artist)…
