Re: DBT Quarantine Livestreams

Jay's show was basically punk rock meets yacht rock meets jazz and latin standards meets experimental art. What's not to love? I've seen Cooley's two and this one and all three were different and wonderful in their own, individual ways. I would be happy to tune into many more from these two. Jay pla...

Shrill

I haven't really been here since summer, but I'm watching this show, Shrill, which resonates with me a fair amount as I know a lot of hipster journalists. And there's a party scene in which an intro to a song starts and I'm like, "I love this song. What is it?  That guitar sounds fantastic!" (I woul...

Re: North of the Border

So just to be clear, because I'm a bit slow catching up to cultural currents: If I say "I sure would like to nail some sweet pussy", it could translate to "I wish to have a cool experience"? Fuck me!

I don't see any Letterkenny in here. Give your collective balls a tug, ya titfuckers. Been a big fan of that show for years.

Coincidentally, while listening to the radio on the seemingly endless drive back to Toronto from the ancestral home land, I heard Aint Talkin 'Bout Love on the radio and thought to myself that DBTs version is so much better than the original.

Re: Van Morrison Is More Than ‘Astral Weeks’....

It's very uncharacteristic of me to feel this way about a rock record in which flute figures so prominently, but I have all the time in the world for Astral Weeks. All the time in the world. To me, it's just one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful records of all time.
