Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 1/12/11

Greetings, fellow tuneheads...

Welcome to another Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday from a snowy east coast and a few bumps, aches and blahs from a week of feeling pretty rough. Christmas is over and it's never any fun putting all the holiday gear away, but at least my boy was strong through the dirty deed, even if my cat went into a two-day funk. We're a humble family growing humbler by the day.

Best of luck to all the teams left in the NFL playoffs and I think we're all still in awe of Seattle's big win over the Saints, particularly that touchdown run that ought to make highlight reels for the years to come. It was the first time my three-year-old hung with his old man for an entire football game, even if we also had to play the drums, Mickey, Goofy and Donald do the hot dog dance in Mickey's Clubhouse and Buzz Lightyear Saves Woody from the Evil (and rather lazy) Tuxedo Kitty. As I said, we're a humble family, yadda yadda...

Otherwise, I hope to have a new announcement regarding the future of Retaliate forthcoming (I'm personally very excited) and with that, I wish everybody a loud 'n proud week ahead, bada bing...

Mark, can't wait to hear the new Jag Panzer.

Tao, good pull with Johnny Cash, I'll have to listen to some of his work this week.

CJK 44-The new Jag Panzer is very cool. Just reviewed it at my site.

CJK, Johnny Cash came up on shuffle on one of those days when I didn't know what I was in the mood for. I'm not a big fan of iTunes, but when I put it on shuffle I almost always end up with something good.

Mark, I just downloaded Weedeater and should be getting Jag Panzer down soon...also pulled down the new Wino, Lazarus AD, Xasthur and Long Distance Calling albums along with the Neuroris "Souls at Zero" reissue, the latter being one of their finest moments....can't wait to hear Wino and LDC especially, but Xasthur has remained one of the few truly compelling black metal artists out there and this is reportedly his final album

Chuck, lol, I like seeing the Maiden in that mix, but what a cool list and I LOVE Peter Murphy and just finally got to spin his latest "Unshattered" which I got in my gift certificate raid on the buy one used get one for a buck's very good

I'm with you both on Cash's autobio with another gift cert and it ought to be pretty fascinating stuff, I'm sure
