The End.

6/7/2016 6:37:31 AM

I think I'm going to scrap this silly webpage/blog, or do something else with it. It's been a fun 12 years, but I simply don't update it anymore, and the messageboard is all but a ghosttown.

Nothing Compares 2 U

5/5/2016 10:01:44 AM

For those that do not know, the Prince composition "Nothing Compares 2 U" was originally recorded by The Family in 1985. That album is fantastic, by the way.

They reuninted a few years ago, but Prince wouldn't let them use the name "The Family", so they changed to "fDeluxe", which is a terribly stupid name.

Their debut album is really a treat to listen to. It came out just when Prince was moving away from the electronic vibe of 1999 and Purple Rain and into the more psychedlic phase of his career. Prince plays everything on the album except the horns.

One of the benefits of Prince's death is now, suddenly, there are hundreds of videos on Youtube that he used to obsessively block. Now future generations can learn why he was so great.

This performance of "Housequake", for example, is perfection.

Prince Dead

Prince, dead at 57. Christ.

I'm pretty speechless. I've been a Prince fan since the first time I saw the When Doves Cry video, him riding on his purple motorcycle. Then became a die-hard fan around the Diamonds and Pearls days. Prince has been a major influence on my life... so this sucks.

Put on some purple music, kids. Sometimes it snows in April.

It appears I'm slowly turning into Liam Gallagher, which I guess I'm okay with. Definitely maybe.

Speaking of which, this cover of the Jam song "Carnation" is awesome:

2016!

I'm torn between trying to revive this here blog or just slowly deleting it.

The weird thing is there is more going on in my life than ever, but I have yet to document any of it. Mostly because my home laptop is awful and I hate using it.

Ah well, I hope everyone has a lovely 2016.

Here's my favorite song right now:

This is very old, but still my favorite thing on earth:

Who's Kelly Clarkson?

The new Kelly Clarkson song is really good.

This song by POP ETC is really good too - the group is made up of former members of The Morning Benders. I love how this sounds like any generic mid-80s rocker.

The new Noel Gallagher song kicks all sorts of ass. I hope he comes here on tour! Everyone skips Cleveland :(
