New CDs

[music | Dr. Octagon - Waiting List (DJ Shadow/Automator Mix)]

I don't usually post about new CDs, I just get way too many of them. But I've been waiting patiently for two independent CDs and they both came in recently, and I really liked both of them.

New Blog

I'm going to try out a blog on my own for a while, see if I can get it customized at all, and whether I like it better than lj. My guess is I'll be mirroring most of the content between the two for a while anyway.

Update:
I'm still in the process of moving blog posts over, and recreating all the old content on the new site, but I've decided to put it live anyway.

Rev. Horton Heat @ The Roxy

[music | Sandra Lee's insane boozahol'ing]

Here are some of the good photos from the Reverend's 11/17/2007 Boston show.

Nashville Pussy and Hank Williams III/Assjack opened, and the crowd was really wound up and active an hour before the Reverend came out, which is the highest praise I can give an opener, so let's stop there. If you're unfamiliar with Hank III / Assjack, he does basically two sets, a psychobilly set and a thrash/hardcore set. So we basically got 4 bands for the price of 3, and it was awesome. I'm still trying to figure out the roots of the gg allin & Murder Junkies connection, since he remains a local legend and heroic hardcore pioneer. It was good to see props in a big way. I know they've got allin & MJ family on board, playing with Merle Allin et al, which is great. Here is a good interview on NHPR with G.G. Allin & the Jabbers members, since I'm on the subject.

Happy Birthday to Me

[music | Me, humming Big Red Rocket of Love quietly]

Get a present, lose a toenail, here's what tonight's Rev. Horton Heat show did to my foot :-) :

Due to my age and state of my knees, I've re-assigned myself from dancing in the pit to doing "Pit Maintenance" around the outside, this is what you get when you don't wear steel toe caps.

Natalie actually thinks that, as disgusting as this is (and more importantly, will become), my abilities to spread and bend my toes like fingers is worse:

last.fm is retarded

[music | Gabby La La - Be Careful What You Wish For...]

I guess it's determined by its users, but any page that lists Gaby Lala as being similar in the slightest to Veruca Salt, Sheryl Crow, or Joan Osbourne has serious flaws.

Secondly, why do I live on the wrong side of the continent to see any of the artists I've listened to tonight?

Milford Halloween

[music | Big Black - Dead Billy]

After we gave out candy to some of the most polite kids ever, we jumped over to the Lull Farms farmstand.  I had had to make an emergency pumpkin stop on my way home and saw them setting up "some kind of display".  Turned out it was hundreds of jack-o-lanterns, with a few really large pumpkin sculptures as well.  Here are some of the less blurry photos:
