Ott 23 2006, 2:48I am always so disturbed by this song. I had not listened to it in years and today, my iTunes shuffled to that song. I know that Sublime did "Date Rape" where there's a "happy" ending because the rapist goes to jail and ends up being someone's...umm...b*&%^ but "The Boiler" has no happy ending. And the vocalist (I think it's the woman from Selector) ends up screaming and crying and it's goes on forever. I can never just skip the song, I just listen to it and wonder what people are thinking when they pass under my window. It's awful but truthful.
Set 18 2006, 3:21I know Last.fm lists recommendations but being that I'm not super duper tech savvy well...I need help.
Thanks in advance!
Mag 20 2006, 7:14I am in love with Sondre Lerche's Duper Sessions album. I love that it's jazzy and his voice (as always) is so amazing. I keep missing him when he comes to town. My friend saw him in New York and said he's got another album coming out that's a bit more rocking. I can't wait.
I've been listening to a lot of stuff from the library...
I also have enjoyed the new album by The Sounds. I really like how 80s they sound. That's not an insult!!! I saw them open for Supergrass a couple of years ago and though I love Supergrass...the Sounds blew them out of the water. They have so much energy.

Apr 4 2006, 17:28I just want to say that I love Billy Bragg. It's cold and rainy and "William Bloke" is perfect for today. (opps had to edit that...misspellings suck!)
Apr 2 2006, 16:42I'm listening to Common's Electric Circus album and I seem to remember that it was really under appreciated. It has such great songs, like "Come Close" featuring Mary J. Blige and "the hustle." I really like this album when it came out in 2002. I don't really remember why people didn't like this album - I think I heard "too experimental." Anyway, I thought I'd just comment one how this album is pretty amazing.
I've been listening to a lot of hip hop and r&b and soul lately.
I have a radio show on Tuesday nights from 12am to 2 am Pacific Standard Time on UCLAradio.com. Give it a listen if you are near a computer and up. I'm calling it "music is my radar." It's going to be pretty eclectic but I'd like your feedback if you are listening.
Apr 1 2006, 6:42Saw Stereolab on Tuesday at the Henry Fonda in L.A. they were great! i do miss Mary Hansen...we actually all missed her. She's sort of the one that gave them a bit of spark. One of my friend's friends left early because the last time he saw them they really blew his mind. Plus, he might be a little hypercritical because he's a music engineer. But I love the visuals they incorporated and I thought they were wonderful. Everyone was on the floor dancing and just seemed entranced. At one point someone had their umbrella open and up in the air...i thought that was a little funny.
Mar 29 2006, 22:26I just got DJ Mel's mix cd, "Short But Funky" in the mail today. I am so happy. It's got be dancing all over my studio. Too bad, DJ Mel doesn't have a lastFM page. He's from Austin, TX and at SXSW, he was amazing. I hope hope hope he comes to LA.
