@1 > Incredible, your ability to (re-)state the obvious, while simultaneously demonstrating abject failure to understand the fucking point.

Good job, Steve Moriarty.

RIP, Mia.

"Rookie" one of the underrated gems in the Sub Pop catalog, deserves the deluxe reissue treatment. How about it, Sub Pop?

Top of my wish list is BEAT HAPPENING...

but since Gary Thorstenson's going to be there with guitar, a Treeclimbers reunion would also scratch the itch. #OldPeopleTalk

Big up! I have great memories of Systemwide, and many of the BSI releases.
Feb 18, 2013 mister_fusspot commented on Did Macklemore Sellout With New NBA Ad?.
Seems to me that Macklemore is telling a story of personal experience with these lyrics, and as such, it's reasonable that the story has many facets. His previous criticism of Nike and sneakerhead consumerism in one version need not be mutually exclusive from the youthful joys he celebrates in the NBA cut. So, no sellout; art is adaptive.

Some folks would take issue with Ms. Roach's assessment of KEXP: "They have global reach, because of the strength of their programming."

The station's reach was most heavily impacted by a massive infusion of cash and facility upgrades from Paul Allen, coupled with an aggressively expansionist management team; the music itself was not nearly as large a contributing factor.

The point is not to bash KEXP (or Ms. Roach), but to suggest that the real opportunity with these LPFM licenses lies not in making "eight little KEXP's" (author Anna Minard's words), but rather, to create broadcasting entities that are first and foremost concerned with best serving their own immediate community, while developing a local, audience-driven funding base.

Hell, I remember when Arm was running a copy machine at a UW library in 1985; don't think he had a chair there, either. He did have a sweet Helen Reddy "I Am Woman" t-shirt, though.

Fact is that between then and now Mark has proven to be one of the greatest artists to ever emerge from the NW. Mudhoney are still incredibly vital; the new song "Chardonnay" is an instant classic. And he's a helluva nice guy. Maximum respect.

And now that Mudede couplet is one of MY favorite quotes about music ever. HaHaHa. Seriously.

Shouldn't the drink for Fugazi be a Shirley Temple?
