Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:25am Cheri Pi:

I'm still thinking about it...
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:26am Claw!:

-Favorite new band has not been invented yet. I forsee lots of washboards and theremins, however.
-best cloud shape will resemble the "boot" mcnugget
-color will be baby poop
-historical romance subject will be old venerial diseases
-scarf pattern will be reverse houndstooth

Hi, everyone, btw. hahah
Happy New year!
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:28am Chris M.:

@Marcel M: Flexington belongs in the favorite songs category but sadly, i left it in my other pants.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:28am ottovonbqe:

I think you should play Flexington again this week!
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:29am Claw!:

YEAH, Electric Citizen!
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:30am Rev. Turnip Druid:

-penrose tile
-cold grey
-emperor norton + multiple lady puppets
-tv static
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:31am Rev. Turnip Druid:

"multiple lady puppets" = alternate for the cloud pattern as well.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:32am Rev. Turnip Druid:

...actually, hell, "multiple lady puppets" could work for any of 'em but the color.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/5/15 10:32am Marcel M:

@Chris M: Ah, makes sense. I can't imagine the other songs flex so hard.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:35am V Priceless:

Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:35am pierre:

Chris - Just got done listening to your Christmas spectacular - That is officially my last festive activity until next December. Thanks!
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:43am Chris M.:

@AndrewC.: you say that now but in July you'll be listening to it again!
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:44am Claw!:

@ AndrewC - And what a Christmas Spectacular it was! So good.

I watched Bad Santa last night and laughed my ass off. That was my last festive activity of the season.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/5/15 10:45am Marcel M:

I think I saw these dudes at the Leonard St. Knitting Factory around when they first formed, opening for Sunn
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:46am V Priceless:

@ Claw! Thanx - yeah, your absence was conspicuous, but understandable given the seasonal obligations. Many of the 'regulars' were MIA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/5/15 10:48am AndrewC.:

I admit I could easily be tempted to listen to that Mark Lanegan carol again. Whatever the season.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 10:49am Claw!:

Yeah, V, it was a crazy hectic time. Glad I wasn't the only one to go missing. I was still listening, but I was being too social to be present on the comment boards. :-P It's good to be past all the holiday madness and back to normal again!

Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:19am pierre:

what 'old' band is going to become trendy and consider cool again in 2015, so much, that 'true' and 'original' lover of the said band will be angry seeing all the kids digging their favourite band that "nobody use to like but them" ?
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:19am pierre:

and what was that band in 2014 ?
  Mon. 1/5/15 11:24am Dean:

Bay City Rollers (2015), and The Beatles (2014)

no law says you have to, otto.
But Dean overstates his case.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:29am V Priceless:

this L Gaze was one of the best for '14. So was the record by The Skull, in my humble.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:29am Chris M.:

it is actually a law now.
  Mon. 1/5/15 11:29am Dean:

My bad. I meant A/CD/C.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:29am Rev. Turnip Druid:

I remember clearly the winter of 1980, after a certain AC/DC record came out. All classmates were on that thing like starving mad beasts. It was pretty amusing.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:30am Cecile:

hahahahha Dean.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:31am Rev. Turnip Druid:

I learned to respect AC/DC much more when i started visualizing the muppet Elmo as the vocalist. The sonic resemblance isn't just uncanny, it's damned hilarious.

I started to really respect ACDC when I heard them extend the pun of Balls / Balls into an entire pun filled song. So droll.
Avatar Mon. 1/5/15 11:34am Cecile:

And Boney M.
  Mon. 1/5/15 11:34am Dean:

You're thinking of Accept, ottovonbqe.

Georg Philipp Telemann in 2015!

No, "Big Balls" is a pretty silly song. But anything about rocking sung by Bon Scott pretty much is great in my universe.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/5/15 11:49am Mike East:

A few weeks back I was jamming on some Harrison tunes with a friend. He didn't know any of the songs I was playing, so I quickly learned "Handle With Care", which was more his speed. You may be right, Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/5/15 11:50am common:

great set, chris!
  Mon. 1/5/15 11:54am Dean:

Geez, I was joking about TW.

Floor sounds like Helmet. Maybe 2015 will be the year of bands with one-word names of ordinary objects. Doorknob. Jar. Filter. Trunk. Toothpick. Pants.
