Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Krys O.:

My ears have been primed for this all morning. The guys in production were listening to a stream of early 80s deep cuts instead of the usually iHeart radio Z-100 crap.

Your show is manna, Pseu.

What I love/hate about this show is discovering a band I've never heard before and then discovering they have 30 albums that I need to listen to.

Anyway, I really liked that Black Watch song.

Pseu:
Thank-you for your show. Would you weigh-in on my obsession with whether Sparkle*Jets' "Sheʼs So Mean", to which you introduced me, were a rip-off of the Cavedogs' amazing "Tayter Country" or not, because (not to be coy) it surely sounds like one to me. Thank-you.
Avatar 12:49pm Pseu Braun:

i'd have to do some deep rip-off research to get to the bottom of that one

Just Shoot Me?
  1:13pm Henning:

Hi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Ike:

IDK if I ever actually saw more than 2 minutes of that show... it just coasted along and filled in bad spots on CBS's schedule like spackle, right? Rules of Engagement, I think? By all accounts it was not half as good as Just Shoot Me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm WoodsOfNH:

Besides, you can go back and see what you've clicked on in your profile. I use it to buy way too much stuff from Bandcamp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Krys O.:

Hey, Henning!
Avatar 1:14pm Pseu Braun:

rules of engagement yes. I like the guy who played "The Tick" Patrick Warburton.
  1:15pm Henning:

Hi Krys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm Ike:

Oh yeah he was great in The Tick. They resurrected The Tick as an Amazon Prime show with a lot more special effects and another guy who looked like Warburton and it was pretty funny, but it only lasted 2 seasons.
  1:18pm MrTum:

Hi Pseu, checking in from the UK. Tip-tip show as always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Krys O.:

@Ike: The second actor to play The Tick was Peter Serafinowicz who was behind Look Around You and was in Shaun of the Dead, etc.
  1:21pm Eed-Yaht:

Whats the tick?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Ike:

Ah yes, thanks @Krys O. Serafinowicz was great. Actually that whole cast was great. Seems like a lot of these shows on streaming services lose momentum and get cancelled after 2-3 seasons.

Best part of Just Shoot Me was Brian Posehn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm xtrakrispy:

@lizzie - other than clicking the stars what else do you do with the faves feature? I emailed with the developer a few weeks about directly exporting it to a Spotify playlist. That may be in the works. Any other things you've tried?
Avatar 1:32pm Pseu Braun:

Shaun of the Dead trivia...the Director of the film said he made it as an apology to his ex-girlfriend, musician Charlotte Hatherley (from Ash) who I play consistently on this program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm WoodsOfNH:

I've only used the "email the list to me" feature. Then a marvel at just how many things I've clicked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm eastvanhalen:

I did not know that this feature existed, omg
  1:35pm Andres:

Where are we on a The Bangles documentary?

Can't decide if I should watch the Creem doc first or the Ken-recommended (sorta) High School Confidential.

Oh, I missed New Zealand's bird nest roys. By total coincidence, I have new Big Takeover mag. And jack rabid has live reviews of new z's Robert Forster and joe pernice. I was at both those shows. (Oh to go to rock shows...

I can fully recommend JAZZ ON A SUMMER'S DAY, and i am certainly not a jazzbo.

Listen to Pete Seeger "my name is Liza kalvedge". It'll spur one to action. Lyrics are mainly (entirely?) from a letter a mom writes to her child, on why she had to protest a missile factory in calif.
