Whatttya Listenin' to Wednesday - 3/10/10

Howdy ho, neighbors!

A little brief again this week. Condolensces go out to my friend Metal Mark and his family with the passing of his mom this week. A truly fine lady and it's all very surreal.

At the office this week, there's been no running water as that community has been tapped dry since last Saturday and no concrete fix date. Back to the primitive, I assure you, and it really puts you in the place of those less fortunate on a day-to-day basis as well as the recent quake victims in Chile and Haiti. After watching 2012 last Friday, I was disturbed enough to really feel for the downtrodden. Bless you all.

Upcoming here at the site, expect another installment of the 2003 Headbangers Interview Sessions. For fun I'll leave the guest's identity a mystery. Been behind on reviews, so those will get along like dogies very shortly. Four chapters left on the first draft on the novel...feeling like a proud papa who has to let his chicklings go into the world and still needing to refine them just a few clicks before the world gets a good gander.

Speaking of papa, my boy is all over Judas Priest, even if I was very much stuck on The Clash's London Calling as it designed one of the novel's chapters. I just adored watching the kid headbang and yell "Music...loud, Daddy!" You betcha, kid, you betcha...

Watching: “Alice in Wonderland” in 3-D

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

cjk, killer list...what are your impressions of Alice? I've heard arguments from both sides of the fence

Bob, good seeing you tonight...a little Clash unity, eh? Cock Sparrer is a band I haven't ever replace from cassettes and I should've

Jeff, thanks for the Wolfmother reminder...only played my copy once and have been meaning to bring it out again...great Buzzcocks of my all-time favorite punk albums

Klepto, I continue to bow to you for the amount and the diversity you consume

Dpth, daring mix of the hair vs. the thrash...I've been wanting to replace my cassette of Frolic in the Park

Tim Burton films are always fun to watch - he's done better so i suspect the complaints are coming from the folks that have unrealistic expectations. the 3D is more for realism rather than super FX (i understand it was filmed in 2D and then rendered in 3D). the story narrative is a bit screwy as it lumps Alice in Wonderland with Through the Looking Glass. it has a *Hollywood* ending. regardless, highly recommended.

I spend an hour driving to and from work so I use that time to listen to a full album of something I've already heard (the classics mostly). And then I try to get one album done while I check my e-mail/cook dinner/etc, and that is almost always something I've never heard before. Diversity is the key to life.

Watching Home Improvement season 2

Reading cookbooks and space opera book that I keep falling asleep during. Although I think that's my fault and not the book.

I have yet to get Frolic Through The Park on CD. I downloaded it from iTunes.

The only copy I've seen has been a part of the 4 disc boxset and I can't bring myself to pay 60 bucks when all I want is the one disc.
