Monday, December 1st, 2008

If I listen to “The Trapeze Swinger” one more time, my tear ducts may completely dehydrate me…

and here’s a video of it…

unfortunately not the version where Michael Stipe gives some background on the song (as mentioned below), but I’ll take some circa 1985 R.E.M. any day…

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Be forewarned. I’m feeling nostalgic for some reason tonight… Below is a transcript to the background of the R.E.M. song, “Live and How to Live It” from an unknown bootleg that I used to have.

I don’t know what that says about my music tastes. I’m somewhat annoyed. :) They do say that all rock critics are failed [...]

So you’re digging the music from the Wii commercials?

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

Stop replaying the Wii Commercials online (or from the Tivo) nonstop and download a copy of Kodo (Inside the Sun Remix) by the Yoshida Brothers from iTunes… Don’t know the song? Where have you been the last couple of weeks? :)
