1. I search TCM on tumblr and 90% of the results are some crap band. Good thing no one will EVER find them through google because the search “TCM band” will only give you results for movies with “band’ in the title on the TCM website.

    With that out of the way, this video is one of my favourite things. I should know more of the films feature, but I don’t. 

     
     

  2. Another in a series of things that make me happy, but also misty eyed. 

     
  3. Can we all just take some time to remember just how good Iggy Pop is? Who else could do Nightclubbing and this? Préliminaires is fantastic. 

     
     
  4. Why did this not happen?

  5. "And so before twenty thousand shocked customers—including innocent children—and his own wide-eyed teammates, the once great pitcher, who was washed up anyway, did the unthinkable, the unpardonable, the inexpiable: he dropped the flannel trousers of his uniform to his knees, and proceeded to urinate on the ball, turning it slowly in his hand as to dampen the entire surface. Then he hitched his trousers back up, and in the way of pitchers, kicked at the ground around the mound with his spikes, churning up, then smoothing down the dirt where he had inadvertently dribbled upon it. To the batter, as frozen in his position as anyone in that ballpark, he called, “Here comes the pissball, shithead—get ready!”"
    — Philip Roth, The Great American Novel
     
  6. Because I am wasting time rather than read Northrop Frye and complete this analysis for The Winter’s Tale. Because I’ve been thinking about Frances Ha all day. Because I think the Jam coulda done something wonderful with this too. And because Live Aid makes me happy, Bowie makes me happy.

  8. And thus it was said that each day shall have Bat For Lashes…often with a chaser of Depeche Mode.

  10. Sometimes Goodbye Columbus Sticks With You

    You bought a diaphragm on my advice.

    Goodbye youth. Goodbye summer and the fall. 

    Your mother always said I was no metsh.

    My mother always thought I was the greatest.

    Don’t worry, I never did agree with her.

  11. While this does not beat The Moments’s rendition of Rocky Raccoon for the top of my favourite Beatles covers list, I did listen to this 20 times today. Is this indeed in that magical holy fuck zone that Deadly Death: Little Deaths speaks of? I dunno, but it’s pretty good.

     

  12. Our Most Recent Intentional Fallacy

    J.K. Rowling is becoming, and I suspect will become, the new George Lucas. She still has a long way to go, but she may still get there. Harry Potter is done. It no longer belongs to you. You cannot modify it now. I do not care what you intended or what you thought or what you continue to think now. I don’t want to hear about it. If you don’t want Ron and Hermione together or if you say Han didn’t shoot first then go write another book and make it so. Don’t try to mess with things that you can’t and shouldn’t mess with. I’m sure that W.K. Wimsatt and T.S. Eliot would back me up in this.
