Officially my latest post ever… clocking in at 8 o’clock after spending all day driving to and from Orlando in torrential downpour to reconnect with a friend from Korea who was in the area interviewing. Needless to say, I was not able to/didn’t want to even imagine what it would take to post from an iPhone… but I ALMOST did. So for the 5 of you who read this, if it’s the thought that counts, then count that shit damn it!
For starters… why the SHITCUSS has no one pinned me to the ground and forced me to listen to Dan Bern?! Completely and 500% totally up my alley. This guy should be all up in my iPod, making out with it, winning at it etc etc. He is fun and his voice is lovely and folk makes me feel like sitting in a small room with a record player… assuming I wasn’t a teacher and could afford such things. Anyway, if I could, this guy would dominate it for days and days…
Also, this Danny Malone guy… I likes him very muchly. OK, I initially loved him for his bio. which included this bit, “Danny owns all of his own dance moves, none borrowed and none stolen. Moves so powerful they have brought peace to warring peoples, joy to the depressed, and a cure for sickness.” In other words, don’t flake on your bio, bands. It might just get you a second listen from a blogger in the middle of craptown Florida with little to no influence on the music community… so THERE! Write funny bios damn it. I will be more likely to want you in my life.
Oh yeah, he’s like real good too. Like a more upbeat Elliott Smith… the subdued vocals that are a little Built to Spill/Oh No! Oh My!-esque? That’s where my head/ears took it anyway. He’s lovely. Listen and I’ll prove it!
