Not sure why I can't get this artwork scaled down... Tanner? And if you can scale it, save a smaller version somewhere for me so I can use it in the future. Gosh this internet sure is difficult when you don't use it as much as you used to!Anyway, enjoy the show!EDITED: In the interest of transparency, I will not delete the text asking Tanner to fix the artwork! But instead I edit this to add a 'thanks'!Updated: 01/14/2012 at 3:05 pm by normal mc

Give A Little Bit (Of Your Love To Me?)

Mon, 03 Oct 2011 13:10:08 EDT

Is anyone besides KD reading this? If so, will you follow the directions in the title of this blog entry and let me know?Well the podcasts didn't happen. The music is ready, sequenced, and the artwork has been added, it's just a matter of me getting over my mental block and actually recording my voice. It was tough this weekend as Caroline and I basically played all weekend, so I don't feel bad about not coming through as promised. I'd say I'd do it tonight, but YANKEE BASEBALL will be ruining any evening plans for me.Soon though!

This Weekend

Thu, 29 Sep 2011 12:34:00 EDT

I am thinking about a podcast for tonight or tomorrow night, 2.5 hours of Wilco: if I had the chance to book them for a concert, the songs on the podcast would be what I ask them to play. The 'dream set list' if you will, or even if you won't. Besides my wife, would anyone listen?

Who Would Be Interested...

Wed, 28 Sep 2011 12:42:48 EDT a full-on, old-skool ARFIE style critique and review of 'The Whole Love'? Because this MC has a lot to say about it other than 'I like it' and 'it's good'.

The Whole Love

Tue, 27 Sep 2011 10:22:33 EDT

Wilco's latest 'The Whole Love' dropped today.So far, after one spin: equal parts 'Sky Blue Sky' and 'A Ghost is Born' if you ask me. Then again, you didn't ask me, so take that for what it is: an unsolicited impression.Do I like it?Yes.

I Swear I Am Going To Podcast This Week...

Mon, 26 Sep 2011 20:36:59 EDT

Oh, it will happen. Why?Well, to celebrate the new Wilco tomorrow!

Testes, Testes... 1...2...3?

Fri, 23 Sep 2011 10:01:58 EDT

Just seeing if I can still do this. The mind is willing but the blog-frame is weak.My fingers find the keys just fine, the words are showing up. Is anybody reading? Does anybody want anything to read? Or perhaps listen to?If this works, I am dropping Fb like third period French.

Fantastic Return To Form?

Sun, 22 May 2011 12:10:44 EDT

In a word: Yes. Hey, if you like good music, this is the podcast for you. And double-hey, even if you don't like good music, this is the podcast for you... to start with, on your journey towards better musical taste! You can thank me later!

This week... two of 'em! One later tonight perhaps, depending on how may beer I drink this afternoon. And I do mean 'beer' not 'beers'... 'beer' sounds plural enough, no? Like how on 'Deadliest Catch' they always say 'crab' instead of 'crabs'. I'm starting a thing here, help me out with it...But seriously, let's discuss this, America... the ARF main page... who wants it back?

We have a nice shiny 42" HD tv now. Our DVR cable box is not HD ready. However it is 58% full. To get a new HD ready DVR, we'd lose everything taped on our current one. I just notified Jeannette that she has until Tuesday to empty it and watch all her shows. She looks determined

Paul Newman: the last great American actor, and the only true star Hollywood ever had... dead at 83. Go watch 'Nobody's Fool', everyone... and enjoy a Miller High Life and 50 eggs in his honor.And yes, Paul Newman's passing on this dreary day DOES tie-in with my heartbreaking, beloved Mets. In 'Cool Hand Luke', he shared this: "Oh come on. Stop beatin' it. Get out there yourself. Stop feedin' off me. Get out of here. I can't breathe. Give me some air..."Johan must be thinking the same thing. Oh Captain, My Johan... the last bullet in the Met revolver... way to go, little man. If this is how the season ends, I'm proud of 'em all. No lie.
