Sept. 25, 2009: Show #25

Hey everyone. I know I’ve really been slacking with the blog lately — not that anyone would notice, since I haven’t had a double-digit hit count since September 24 — but I just haven’t really felt like blogging for whatever reason. I’d like to say I had a better excuse than that for slacking off with this thing, but that’s just how it is.

Anyway, here’s the playlist from the 9/25/09 show. Hopefully one of these days I’ll actually write something more substantial than one of these playlist posts. That, however, would require me to stop being a lazy slacker.

May 1, 2009: Show #20

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I last updated this blog, so here I am. It’s kind of sad that I have to start every other post with pretty much that exact sentence, especially considering how much free time I have. But whatever. Here we are, and to atone somewhat for my recent absence I give you Bret Michaels getting clotheslined by a Tony Awards set piece.

Oh, I kid you, Mr. Michaels. I know you’ve contributed a lot to American pop culture. Without Poison, nobody would know what “Unskinny Bop” means. And without Rock of Love Bus, we wouldn’t have been subjected to the first televised twat shot that wasn’t on HBO or late-night Cinemax or some random subscription-only porn channel. Truth be told, I’m not sure what to make of this dude. Sometimes he actually does seem like a nice guy, but then sometimes on his show he’ll make the girls do or wear something really sleazy, and one of them will be like, “I don’t feel comfortable doing this” and he’ll just say, “Oh, come on, you need to learn how to party.”

But enough about Bret Michaels. I’m not even sure why I’m writing so much about him since I’m not a Poison fan and I didn’t play any of his music on my show. And speaking of which, here’s the playlist from May 1, 2009.

1. The Clash, “Clampdown” (London Calling)

2. The Strokes, “Reptilia” (Room On Fire)

3. Foxboro Hot Tubs, “Highway 1” (Stop Drop And Roll!!!)

4. The Beatles, “I’m Only Sleeping” (Revolver)

5. The Decemberists, “The Crane Wife 3” (The Crane Wife)

6. Radiohead, “The Trickster” (My Iron Lung EP)

7. Interpol, “Mammoth” (Our Love To Admire)

8. Pavement, “Embassy Row” (Brighten The Corners)

9. Spoon, “Don’t Make Me A Target” (Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga)

10. The National, “Trophy Wife” (Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers)

11. The Smashing Pumpkins, “Here Is No Why” (Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness)

12. Squeeze, “Pulling Mussels (From The Shell)” (Singles — 45’s And Under)

13. R.E.M., “Strange” (Document)

14. Wintersleep, “Jaws Of Life” (Untitled)

15. Weezer, “Slave” (Maladroit)

16. The Fall Of Troy, “The Dark Trail” (Manipulator)

17. Bloc Party, “Like Eating Glass” (Silent Alarm)

18. Alkaline Trio, “Mercy Me” (Crimson)

19. Muse, “Stockholm Syndrome” (Absolution)

20. Nine Black Alps, “Get Your Guns” (Everything Is)

21. Radiohead, “Bodysnatchers” (In Rainbows)

22. Nirvana, “Endless Nameless” (Nevermind bonus track)

23. Kings Of Leon, “Talihina Sky” (Youth And Young Manhood bonus track)

24. Minus The Bear, “Electric Rainbow” (Planet Of Ice bonus disc)

25. Blur, “Me, White Noise” (Think Tank hidden track)

26. Queens Of The Stone Age, “The Fun Machine Took A Shit And Died” (Era Vulgaris bonus track, certain editions only)

So since I’m starting to run low on playlist posts, what to do aside from ENJOY THE GENIUS and Top 5 posts? Don’t you worry your pretty little heads, all five of you readers who come here searching for something other than pictures of tits. I’ve got ideas, so stay tuned. And I’ll try to update more regularly, but I won’t guarantee anything. In the immortal words of Eric Cartman, “What-eva! What-eva! I’ll do what I want!”

Here’s the playlist for my Nov. 7, 2008 show on WMUC2.
