Welcome back, Pseu! A quick thank you: I had to travel 5 hours alone by car during your last live show and streamed you for 3 of them. Great traveling companion music. Thanks for the company. Also, if you can recommend a good anti-perspirant, I would be grateful! ;-)

I don’t recall which prayer I may have uttered, but Cher and Meatloaf just answered it.

I was wondering who the #@%*$%!!! was playing Cher and Meatloaf but it cheered me up to see that it was Pseu.

Cher and Meatloaf exists, and I missed it? Rats!
  12:47pm clarke:

those two obviously could not afford max weinberg to drum on that song, sadly.
Avatar 12:48pm Parq:

Wearpants, the tragedy of it is, we grow some of the best produce and raise some of the best meats in the world. And then we lard it up with corn syrup, added fat, modified starch and chemical additives. And we call it real America eats.

not starry eyes, i get it...

The 'dead ringer for love' video is like Cher and Jack Black - Great!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm The Oscar:

Does anyone else get hilariously incorrect album art on the new pop-up player? Mine's somehow misidentified Sir Paul as "Marianne Rosenberg."
  1:05pm Daniel:

Huh - new McCartney?
  1:06pm Daniel:

Sounds good.
Avatar 1:06pm Beast of Boonton:

In the 'dead ringer for love' video, they toss Meatloaf up on the bar like he is a cardboard cut-out

  1:50pm clarke:

i haven't gotten here to say THIS SHOW IS FRIGGIN' DELIGHTFUL!
  1:51pm Daniel:

Love BJM, but it's never sounded quite the same to me since I heard Anton screaming at his (and my) very nice (gay) neighbor who'd had the nerve to ask him to turn his guitar down VERY late one night: "I'm gonna fucking kick your ass, you fucking faggot." And yet still, those records sound great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Hughie Considine:

Van Gogh was a total pill, too.

Thanks all for your being into the music despite injury and insult and pitches for bucks!
Avatar 2:03pm Linda Lee:

we've had the 'shitty artist' chat here before. how much do we allow an artist's actual personality to determine how we take the art? seems to depend on the flavor of shitty.

checking in to salute Armenia.

Since I figured out roughly which direction to face to hit Yerevan with a salute, it seems the right thing to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Krys O.:

I've got posterior vitreous detachment. It's not retinal detachment, rather bits of material from the back wall of the eyeball start floating around. It's different from floaters. It's like looking through a blurry window. :( Started happening almost ten years ago. The only resolution will be when my vitreous humor thins and the mass of material sinks to the bottom of each eye. By then, I will probably have cataracts, macular degeneration, and corneal dystrophy, as those are in my genetic heritage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Kat in Chicago:

Sorry to hear that, Krys O.!

Can we propose songs ?

I love this song "heaven." Never heard it before, but it really reminds me of the early 1990s — like Frank Black or something.
