New Feature: What's Playing Now?
by Michele Christopher
So Michele and I were sitting around this morning wondering what the hell to do pre USA World Cup. She has something to do today and I need to nap. Yeah. I don't move that much on the weekends. Starting to get the turtle name? And she flies. She has a cat that screams all day, for christ sake. So she has to. I just have a sleeping dog. My dog barely moves. So it kinda works out. But anyways, we wondered about something to do today. It can't be that long. We don't have that much time. In a few hours you lose us to World Cup,stuck on the TV, and depending on who wins, you might lose turtle all night. But thats just what happens. So what to do?
Pantera - "Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills"
Man, this idea is gonna kick me in the head one of these days. I’ve got over 10,000 songs on shuffle in my Winamp because, for the sake of pure honesty, I loaded up every folder, not just the one titled “daily listens.” So I’ve got everything from Air Supply and Anti-Flag to Zao and Zeke in here. So it's not always gonna be punk rock. Yea, that’s right. I said Air Supply. Wanna make something of it, then step up, because “All Out of Love” is a badass song and I will defend it to my death.
So what did I end up with today? Pan-fucking-tera. After three straight days of practically listening to nothing but Fang’s “The Money Will Roll Right In” on repeat, this is like a kick in the nuts. Well, if I had nuts.
I fucked your girlfriend last night. A song about banging a chick while her boyfriend snores and drools in a drug/drink induced sleep. A mean, mean, mean fucking song on so many levels. Phil talking his way through this as if he just woke up from a heroin coma, and then the screaming and the slow, drawn out cadence of the music, makes you feel like you’re trudging through muddy nightmare of drugs and death and drunken sex and a depravity so low that you end up thinking, god damn, I hate this fucking song. I hate Phil Anselmo and I hate this song. Why couldn’t my Winamp have landed on “I’m Broken” instead? Or hell, I would have taken “All Out of Love” at this point. This song fucks me up. Listen at your own discretion.

Pixies - "Caribou"
The start to an album that really is kinda cool. I can't tell what album it is on because it was stolen many years ago and I'll I have is a burn. But, as we said whatever was playing we would review. It's too bad that after reading the lyrics, I still have no clue what she's talking about. Meh. It happens.
Kim Deal's voice was what brought me into the Pixies and later to the Breeders. She always sounded to desparete. So kind of, well, like sad. It was like she realized this was the end and this was it. Seems like in all the songs, unless she was singing with Frank Whateverthefuckhewantstocallhimselfthisweek, she always seemed sad on this album. The only song she really sounded happy on was a love song on another album. About sex in the shade? Ok. I'll admit. I had a crush on her. But, we said we had to do this honestly. So there is. I had a crush on her voice. Frank was always too pissed. His voice was like he was just angry about ...nothing? But it was different with her. She seemed to slow it down and add a human tone to the band. It was really kinda sad. Like she new everything wasn't right in her life. Everything was starting to suck.
But she was going.
If she was still going.
Why couldn't you?
So what's playing for you right now?
