My fave Shondells! Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Carmichael:

Heya Pseu and hookees.
Avatar 12:20pm Jeff:

Fascinating. That horribly-overcompressed Beck tune's mastering doesn't sound as obviously bad by comparison with, well, everything else when it and the songs around it have all made the trip through the colon of WFMU's broadcast chain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm BronwynB:

holy crap its buffy!!!
  12:22pm BriJet:

Helllllooooooooo all!

Gorgeous - but play fair, and play bratty Spike's song next
Avatar 12:23pm glenn:

hey, the musical episode of buffy. i still like bunnies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Kat in Chicago:

That Beck is new, right? It sounded so calculated and so irresistible at the same damn time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Kat in Chicago:

I haven't paid attention to him in years.
Avatar 12:25pm Jeff:

All of a sudden, Buffy is surfing the zeitgeist. This is the third Buffy cultural reappearance I've seen pop up in the last week or so.

I keep telling people, "Buffy's okay I guess, but have you watched Veronica Mars recently?"
Avatar 12:26pm Jeff:

Yeah, that Beck is from his recent album "Colors".
  12:26pm table_for_one:

that seekers track was great
Avatar 12:27pm glenn:

beck's website is pretty good, there's a section where he gets together with friends and they basically play all the songs on some of his favourite records. one of them is oar. it's really good.
Avatar 12:27pm Jeezy:

I don't know who's worse: Pandering, past-his-prime Beck or pandering, past-his prime, Liam!
Avatar 12:31pm glenn:

i'd have to vote liam.
Avatar 12:32pm Pseu Braun:

This show's all about pop - pandering or not. Anyway, we are in real need during our October fundraiser. I'll pander, whatever - We rilly rilly need you to chip in, folks. Click on the playlist dog and cow banner. Help get us into the BLACK!
Avatar 12:34pm Jeezy:

And I Looooooove the Pop! I'm gonna (modestly) increase my Swag For Life amount, Pseu! Life would not be worth living without WFMU!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Kat in Chicago:

I'm upping mine a lil bit too. Best I can do.

Hello Land of Freeform!!!! Or is it Land-O-Freeform???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Switchblade Batman:

Who ever complains about Beck ain't no friend of mine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Kat in Chicago:

I wasn't complaining about the Beck tune at all :)
  12:43pm Websie:

I don't give a toss if Liam G is unfashionable now... he was also one sexy chimp 20 years ago...
  12:45pm queems:

if i can't talk shit, why do i even exist

Words to live by, @queems.

@jeff just trying to keep it real
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Lizardner Dave:

I haven't checked out the new Beck record, however I am not really getting into the Courtney Barnett/Kurt Vile record that everyone seems to love. And it's not because of Courtney.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Krys O.:

Aw, Bryan MacLean was such a talented writer and singer.
  12:50pm Lawrence Stevenson:

"I love Beck" and "Beck just made a crappy record" are not mutually exclusive statements.
Avatar 12:50pm SmokinJ:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Kat in Chicago:

I do find it hilarious that alternative-indie-whatever has given us another Kurt and Courtney. I like the songs from the record that I've heard.
Avatar 12:50pm Jeff:

...and I wouldn't care enough to whine so annoyingly about the new Beck release if I didn't actually usually like most stuff the adorable little munchkin puts out.
Avatar 12:52pm Cheri Pi:

Bryan MacLean was a neat person!
Avatar 12:52pm Jeff:

Yeah, I really have been liking the way Courtney Barnett's voice and that of whoever that boy is sound together.
  12:53pm Will:

How can one malign Beck when one adores a song like "Come On Down to My Boat Baby"? Just askin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Stevel:

Liking The Factotums take on Dylan. My favorite cover of ASM is still by Jason and the Scorchers.

Oh derp that's my wife's name lol. Yeah sounds a lot like our marriage :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Switchblade Batman:

Holy hell, I don't think I heard this song since I was a teenager
Avatar 1:12pm Jude in JC:

Wow...haven't heard "Stay" for eons...it was buried deep in my subconscious. Thanks Pseu. <3

Avatar 1:27pm Pseu Braun:

Suggo , Orion Experience is the glam/pop shit, local.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Michael 98145:

"The Orion Experience is a New York City-based pop rock band led by singer Orion Simprini. The band's music appeared on MTV's soundtrack to Laguna Beach."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Michael 98145:

i'm surprised these tracks are from this century.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Kat in Chicago:

This is like musical Halloween candy
  1:35pm melinda:

@pseu they really are
  1:37pm queems:

there are few things i love more in this world than disco and disco-ish music

Hello, Pseu and fans of the popular music.

As a kid I would get Jim and George Jones confused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Krys O.:

Yes! The Grass Roots had so many hits.
Avatar 1:54pm glenn:

george was the possum. jim was the weasel.
  2:00pm queems:

That is my favorite bible verse. All mysteries are just more needles in the camel's eye''
  2:15pm Bill in WO:

George couldn't be bothered with purple Kool-Aid. Maybe if you put some gin in it.
Avatar 2:16pm glenn:

my favourite is 1 Timothy 5:18.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Krys O.:

Ooh, this is the first time that I'm hearing the similarity between I Wish You Were Fun and Lyndsey De Paul's Sugar Me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Kat in Chicago:

Sparks: still delightful.
Avatar 2:24pm Jeff:

@Kat: Right?

Is everyone excited about the awesome live Sparks set coming up on Brian's show? I am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello Pseu and Hookthingers. Sparks are a national treasure that most people have never heard of!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Krys O.:

Can't wait to hear Sparks live on Brian's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Bootsie:

Can't wait to hear the Sparks show! I just saw them a couple weeks ago and they were FANTASTIC.
  2:28pm Andy (DC):

What a happy song! Thank you Pseu!
