The Really Big Post

There's a lot of things I'm going to cover here. Fair warning.

First, some links:

New Permanent Damage is up. God bless Steven Grant.

The New Comic Book Galaxy is still rolling out the goodies, today it's a Scott Pilgrimm review from ADD, Ojo reviewed by Ian Brill, a Sleeper review from Bryan and Jog looks at Jenny Finn. Yesterday we had the triumphant return of Breakdowns (man it felt good seeing that again, you can still catch the old series at MPS, link to the right), as well as two more reviews, F-Stop and Foul Play (by Ian Brill and buddy JB, respectively). Don't forget the contest!

Gord-o is a GEEEK. But I love him anyway.

It would be a Marvel comic that eats itself and creates a black hole, wouldn't it?

Werewolf vs. Shark. That rocks on so many levels.

Dave can't stop swearing. That fucker.

Lastly, big props to Cinescape's Brian Thomas for sending me Dragnet '67 for FREE. That's right, I WON something. It's no AiT collection, but it made me feel good. He's giving away some stuff this week too, but I'm a dick and i'm not going to link you to it, because if you enter, I might not win! So, if you want it, you have to find it. I suck, I know. While you're there check out Comicscape this week, it's got an interview with Robert Vendetti.

Oh, and in case you missed it, I HAVE A FREAKING COLUMN AT COMIC BOOK GALAXY!!

And I'd like to take a moment to talk a bit about it.

It rules.

There you go.

Now, here's my track listing, including commentary, for Lefty's Mixed Bag 2.

Songs I Know by Heart-The Ded Mix Vol. 2

Dynamite Hack-Anyway

I love the raw emotion of this, too bad these guys fell off the earth.

Dashboard Confessional-Screaming Infidelities

Another break up song, more raw emotion. It's a different kind of angry, it's desperate and very heart-on-your-sleeve. I loved this album too, but their follow up not so much.

Everclear-Now That It’s Over

A band I love and another break up song (there's a few on this disc, in fact, all these songs remind me of some relationship or another in my past). The disc, Songs From an American Movie Vol. 1, is high on my top albums of all time. Art tapped into an emotional well spring with this disc and while this is not my favorite track, it's up there.

Finger Eleven-One Thing

In hindsight I regret adding this. I like it, but the band does nothing for me and it tires out on repeated listenings. Add to that the fact that it reminds me of a really depressing moment in my life, and well, I just can't listen to it over and over. Maybe everyone else won't think so.

Eve 6- Superhero Girl

Another fav band. This song is killer. It actually doesn't remind me of any relationship, but a time in my life when things generally worked out for me all the time.

New Radicals-Someday We’ll Know

Hey, it's not a break up song! This is a love's lost tune by another band I liked that disappeared.

Gary Allan-Songs about Rain

Cheesy country, normally I'd hate this stuff, but for some reason I just like it. Another love lost song.

Sheryl Crow-C’mon C’mon

Man, I love Sheryl Crow. Alt-country at its finest here.

Phantom Planet-Always on My Mind

A repeat performer! Hope everyone liked them enough to give this a chance, it reminds me of some of those old tunes about girl watching, among other things.

Blue Flannel-I Can’t Stand Losing You

This is actually a local band that got a bit of wider notoriety. It's kind of cheesy, but I still enjoy it occasionally.

Everclear-Everything to Everyone

This song reminds me of soooo many people I know. Did i mention I like Everclear? A lot?

John Oszajca-Long Drive Home

Another repeater offender. This is so different from the last song it's hard to believe it's the same guy. Eventually everyone will have this whole disc, I just can't resist putting this guy on everything I make. This song is very me.

Edwin McCain & Darius Rucker-Solitude

There was a period of about a year, maybe a year and a half, where I didn't see my brother. While nothing in this song happened to us (well, not exactly) it still reminds me of that time apart. Very regretful little ballad. I don't like this live version as much, but it's the only one I have.

The Black Crowes-She Talks to Angels

It's about every girl you ever thought you loved.

The Monkees-Stepping Stone

Not my fav monkees tune, but it fits with the disc, and I do love it. So upbeat to be so down beat.

Kid Rock-Lonely Road of Faith

Everyone will hate this song, it's over produced and loses what it has going for it in the middle. But, screw it, I like it and it reminds me of someone I knew very briefly.

Willie Nelson-Recollection Phoenix

This is off the same disc that my last Nelson tune was, it's my favorite song on the disc, I love the clip-clop of the horses in the background.

Tom Petty & the Heart Breakers-Walls

This song makes me smile.


My special bonus song. It's beautiful, and a surprise, enjoy.

So, yeah, that's it for today.
