RIP Mark Linkous I first heard Sparklehorse while trying to find Bob Dylan’s Desire in the record store a few years back. It was Shade and Honey playing…”I can look at your face, for a thousand years…” It was one of those moments where I actually stood there, just listening to the song from start to end. It was the last vinyl and I told the clerk I’d like to buy it if he took […]

So I’m making a mix cd. Gawd it seems like forever ago when Mixtapes and cds were the rage. I kind of miss buying those Cds that look like little vinyls.

Channel surfing at its best. Can you believe I turned the channel and one of my favorite Roy Orbison songs was playing? This set is so awesome. Can I just say Roy kicks every scenesters’ ass with those RayBans. And you know you’re badass if you got the Boss, Tom Waits, and Elvis Costello backing you up.
