The best one is the one where Neil Young walks in the front door, pokes around until he finds a CSNY bootleg, and starts giving the clerk shit for selling his music without paying him for it. Then he steals it, tells the clerk he's stealing it,... [more]

Our daughter was the first grandkid and right before she was born my mom informed everyone that she hated "Grandma" and wanted to be called "Grandy" (and so she is.) My good friend immediately insisted that, in that case, he did... [more]

That is awesome. I just saw this comment and read it to my daughter who is right beside me and said, "awww." Strangely enough, we are having her friends over for her TWELFTH birthday party tomorrow. How time flies.... [more]

if Bran's wolfie could take down a deer nearby, why would they not go get some of that to eat? Or even start using warging as a hunting technique if they're so low on provisions? There still wouldn't be enough for him to consume, to keep... [more]

Awesome song. I always end up stumbling through the first minute or so of it when I pick up my guitar. Cause that's all I know. A few Mason Williams-related moments from my life: 1. My parents had The Mason Williams Phonograph Record, (along... [more]

Weird that they didn't really go into the Doctor and the Medics '80's cover, which was (sadly) my intro into the song, in my teenage highschool neo-psychedelia phase. Terrible cover, but it was everywhere at the time. #1 in the UK, I think. I still... [more]

Ah, they grow up so fast. The other day I was making some stupid rhyming song up while cleaning the living room, as one does, and I absent-mindedly go something like "da doo be jizz--" and quickly correct it to "jazz," and my... [more]

Do you really believe Lord of the Flies would have a girlie cover treatment if it were written by a woman? Well, no, but that was sort of the point. These kind of dopey-ass covers are everywhere, and as with most satire, you pick an... [more]

Headphones lie. I hate mixing but the theory goes that you should never mix on headphones; you should mix on monitors that have a really flat response (so not computer speakers either). Monitors that sound neutral or true (or shitty, to your... [more]

Outside of an established context of "we are talking about adoption" I don't see how either version of the questions in the video are cool to ask. If someone presents their kids to you as their kids, why the need to get to the... [more]

Geraldo looks so hopelessly, obliviously square and out-of-sync with them; all Tony Manero disco swagger. Funny to see Nick Lowe lurking in the background at the cashier, a year before his own huge hit song.... [more]

It was a good episode but I'll miss Joffrey because he was such a little bastard and so fun to hate. I have to say I was a little disappointed with the method of his murder; it was a little anti-climactic for me after he was so douchey for so long.... [more]

I always do music first and I find lyrics really hard to write. My flow is almost always stumbling on a chord progression first, and then thinking of a melody idea, usually with a harmony that goes with it. Then, so I don't forget the idea, I'll... [more]
