  1. Two of my best friends from college (who have been dating for a couple years now) are visiting the Bay Area this weekend and I'm going to play God Only Knows on my violin while he proposes to her. I never fully appreciated how complex Brian Wilson's melodies are until trying to teach myself one.
  2. How many Ty Segall projects am I expected to know about?!?
  3. ^ Yup. Also I didn't think the Sleigh Bells album was bad, it's just not as good as their past stuff.
  4. I'm a Hawks fan too! It's an exciting time!
  5. Correction: Make that 4 perfect Arcade Fire albums in a row.
  6. I would call it album of the year. No question.
  7. Devastating. I was at the Bridge School Benefit on Sunday (Amazing. More on that later.) and My Morning Jacket played Oh Sweet Nuthin' in tribute with Neil Young, Elvis Costello, and Jenny Lewis. I broke down.
  8. Haim is the real deal. This record is as catchy as it gets.
  9. Your Cheatin' Heart - Hank Williams (1953) Devil's Dance Floor - Flogging Molly (2000) Better Not Look Down - B.B. King (1979)
  10. 1. Sherry Darling – Bruce Springsteen (1980) 2. When You Dance I Can Really Love – Neil Young (1970) 3. Animal – Pearl Jam (1993) 4. Givin' Em What They Love – Janelle Monae feat. Prince (2013) 5. Heart of the City – Jay–Z (2001) 6. By–Tor and the Snow Dog – Rush (1975) 7. Strutter – Kiss (1974) 8. Fallin' – Alicia Keys (2001) 9. Nadine – Chuck Berry (1964) 10. Elevation – U2 (2000)
  11. I voted for Paul Butterfield, Deep Purple, Nirvana, NWA, and Yes.
  12. My first thought. Also The Doors' debut. As for modern bands, I think the case can be made that Arcade Fire has done this three times in a row.
  13. Givin' Em What They Love - Janelle Monae feat. Prince (2013) Heart of the City - Jay-Z (2001) By-Tor and the Snow Dog - Rush (1975)
  14. You definitely had a greatly improved team compared to just a couple years ago. Should be exciting to watch their progress.
  15. Great game, Phil! Just a little bit better for me than for you, though.
  16. What a perfect song to end the series with. Brilliant.
  17. Good call, I don't expect to see much defense out there from either side.
  18. Don't count yourself out yet, we haven't lived up to the hype this year. Again. Still, should be a good game!
  19. 1. The Unknown Soldier – The Doors (1968) 2. The Ties That Bind – Bruce Springsteen (1980) 3. All Tomorrow's Parties – The Velvet Underground (1967) 4. There Are Listed Buildings – Los Campesinos! (2010) 5. Our Whole Lives – The Hold Steady (2010) 6. A Kind Of Magic – Queen (1986) 7. Close To Me – The Cure (1985) 8. Don't Forget Me – Harry Nillson (1974) 9. Come Running – Van Morrison (1970) 10. Will You Return? – The Avett Brothers (2007)
  20. That's what I noticed too. Kind of a mix of Santana and Prince. Which makes sense, since Prince made an awesome cameo.
  21. I've been in Santa Rosa for about a week now, had to get here early to get some paperwork done. The job doesn't start until the 7th, so I've had too much time and pot on my hands lately.
  22. Janelle Monae is one of the most interesting artists out there right now. Electric Lady is amazing.
  23. I'm not sure why MGMT's new album has been slammed as hard as it has by the critics. I liked it. It's not great, it's essentially second-rate Flaming Lips material, and I do wish they didn't hate their early stuff so much, but it's not bad.
