apropos of nothing,
ever since my band started covering “Movin’ On Up” by Primal Scream, whenever I hear the original I always expect it to be like 20 beats per minute faster than it actually is.

attheageofdecay: the80sareforever: The destruction of a childhood. Max covered this already. This was not the last Calvin and Hobbes strip. Anyone that read the strip knows that this isn’t even a legit strip. I know a lot of you are younger and might have missed out on… Honestly I thought the last Calvin and Hobbes was so ubiquitous and well-known that no one could confuse it for...

opinions about the internet
It turns out if I log out of Facebook in my browser, I have zero interest in ever logging back in again. So, no, Tumblr, that means I don’t want to change my settings to make sharing easier. Stop asking me about it.

i keep hearing you can listen to all music,...
But then you try to turn this into a Spotify playlist, but you can’t, because a bunch of these songs were released on defunct house labels and now they’re not anywhere. Can we get a Numero Group for orphaned dance music? Does that exist anywhere? Tell me where it is.
submitted an article to a journal yesterday
we’ll see how that goes
more opinions about chicago's first album
Probably the worst thing about “Beginnings” by Chicago is that every classic rock station cuts it off right before it gets to the loud part at the end, which is the best part of the song. I was driving back to State College from Illinois once and it came on, and I was like “man, radio always plays the worst Chicago songs, I don’t know why no one ever plays that one awesome...
there's another band on the bill with us tomorrow...
It’s nice when that happens, because they probably figure they’re the big names for playing second, but we’re really the winners by playing first because it means we’ll be home and in bed like two hours earlier than they will. Also, we’re all old people.
can't wait for this christmas music ad on spotify...
so I can get back to the Wu-Tang Clan
Penn State Basketball Downs Radford →
I think it’s tongue-in-cheek, but I just wanted to post this because I think it’s the first time ever anyone has responded to a win over Radford with “hey, maybe we’re not that bad!”
help me decide
Is Bob Knight the Mark E. Smith of college basketball, or is Mark E. Smith the Bob Knight of rock music?

I’ve been reading a couple of stories about how Penn State’s about to get sued by everyone, and the weird thing is that they get pull quotes from Andrew Shubin because he’s litigated civil rights cases. Huh! Judging by listening to the radio, I always figured his entire practice was built around telling undergrads how to plead out of DUI and underage drinking charges. The more...
is turntable.fm still around
no one ever talks about it anymore
And you know what that means: I’m playing Football Manager on my lunch break and making you hear about it. I’m managing in Spain at the moment, which I’ve never done before, and so the Copa del Rey is a new thing to me. (I’m not in it anymore, since we lost in the first round; three months into the season it remains the only game we’ve lost in all competitions.) The...
My days would be immeasurably worse if I didn’t have my bike commute on either end of them.
