Been neglectful of the blog because of a side project loosely related to the blog. A bit contradictory? Yeah, well, Jesus was a crossmaker:
Playlist and Archive for Monday (6/23/08)
This past Monday I hosted Plastic Tales and someone called in to request some Arcade Fire. I told them to reevaluate everything and then call back. A half an hour later he called back and requested Blue Oyster Cult. So, one man can make a difference. True story. Seriously.
Here's some highlights for ya:
I played "Lay Down" by The Strawbs because I gave away to tickets to their show (they're still around!)
"It Came in the Night" by the elusive band A Raincoat. The film was originally used in the Kenneth Anger film Rabbit's Moon, seen above. Some kind of lonely clown.
And finally the hilarious "Minotaur's Song" by The Incredible String Band. Now, I know I've played some bad homemade music videos on this blog before, but this is by far the worst. Although... this kid is 15 and he's probably just learning how to animate. Plus he's got really good taste. So I give it a thumbs up!
