The Mr. T Experience, "I'm Like Yeah, but She's All No"

Seems like we've had a lot of East Bay stuff recently. Or am I just imaginging things? Anyway, it's welcome. I might have that impression because I was listening to Operation Ivy in the car earlier today, I guess. I'm highly suggestible.

R.E.M., "Half a World Away"

Folks, do you really want to hear my thoughts on the archetypical "college rock" band? You do not. They are vapid. My thoughts, not R.E.M.

Andrew Bird, "Skating"

Delightful! I mean, wildly out of season, but delightful nonetheless.

Public Enemy, "By The Time I Get To Arizona"

I feel like I've told this story before, but this song is the reason I bought a headphone amp back in...2004, I think. I wanted to be able to crank this song in particular even louder than my iPod could go, and the headphone amp was a way to do that. It came with little stick-on velcro dots so you could stick your iPod to it, and it could run on batteries if you wanted to bump it on the go. But it just lived in my office, and sometimes I would crank it and rattle my molars with something like this. In other news, my hearing really sucks these days.

Yo La Tengo, "Our Way to Fall"

You know, pretty good day today.
