Re: Automatic songs, automatic reviews (Yes, You're A Robot reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - the vocal melody kinda sinks this one for me, it just feels like it follows a very obvious pattern along with the chords. Maybe that's a deliberate attempt to sound robot-esque, but it's just feels uninspired to me. The bridge is cool though, the solo is good as ever, and I ...

Superorganism NPR Tiny Desk Concert

I've watched this a couple of times now and am just very impressed with how weird/cute/catchy/warm/odd/interesting this performance is. Check it out if you haven't already:

Just listened to Van William - Countries and really liked it. Van was the leader of Port O'Brien and this is a solo album by him. Very enjoyable listen.

Re: SiriusXM buys Pandora for $3.5B

I imagine they try different stations and see if they pick up enough steam to keep. Maybe there aren't enough folks interested in listening to Yacht Rock specifically via satellite? I just switched to a yacht rock station on Amazon music instead.

Sirius just cancelled their Yacht Rock station, which was a bummer.

Re: New Music Friday - 9/21/18

Maybe the new Sha La Das record was too mellow for me this morning, but I'm not feeling it. I am howerver enjoying the new Slash album with Myles Kennedy on vocals. Some of the lyrics are dumb, but overall, the album is a fun listen.

Re: Look At The Awesome (Thin Air Reviews)

BSS - This is one of those songs that reminds me of a lot of stuff "Heroes" by David Bowie ... "Green Tambourine" by the Lemon Pipers ... I think I like the song more than the recording. It's one of these things where I'm not liking it as much as I feel like I ought to because it's kind of up my al...

The Low album wasn't what I was expecting at all. I'm not really familiar with all of their catalog, but it seemed out of character for them.

Artemis by Andy Weir

I borrowed this book from Glennny a while back and finally got around to reading it. While I had the book for months, I read it in a couple of days. It was an easy and engaging read. Where the Martian was science fiction, is book is science fantasy and it is a fun story about life on the Moon. The d...

Disenchantment

Is anyone else watching Disenchantment on Netflix? This is a new cartoon from Matt Groening, so if you like the Simpsons or really Futurama, this is right up your alley. I'm a few episodes in and while it isn't the greatest TV show I've ever seen, it is a fun watch. It has a lot of the same voices, ...
