You Just Haven’t Earned It Yet Baby

In true Tony Kornheiser type fashion, I declared myself the winner of the Battle Royale last night on account that Natalya played one too many songs by the Shout Out Louds and Charles didn’t even play the Wu Tang. That and I threw everyone for a loop when I busted out The HolliesLong Cool Woman in a Black Dress. You knows it. Remember, Keats and Yeats are on your side, but you still lose, because weird lover Wilde is on mine.
My set lists were:
9PM
The Charlatans, “Feeling Holy”
Oasis, “Round Are Way”
Morrissey, “It’s Hard To Walk Tall When You’re Small”
Stone Roses, “Mersey Paradise”
Badly Drawn Boy, “Silent Sigh”
10PM
Happy Mondays, “Step On”
Chemical Brothers, “Loops of Fury”
New Order, “True Faith”
Primal Scream, “Miss Lucifer”
The Hollies, “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress”
11PM
Bee Gees, “Tragedy”
The Smiths, “Cemetry Gates”
Joy Division, “Dead Souls”
James, “Heavens”
Starsailor, “Good Souls”
Midnight
Morrissey, “Boxers”
elbow, “Cast of Thousands”
Oasis, “It’s Getting Better (Man!!)”
Ian Brown (featuring Noel Gallagher), “Keep What Ya Got”
doves, “Lost Souls”
Of course I would be remiss if I didn’t wish Miss Remain Fabulous a very happy birthday (last night).
US to extend daylight savings time and fuck up Canada in the process? [via Canadian Chromewaves]
As if his head wasn’t big enough already.
Bye bye Alan Embree.
Who wants to come with me to see Teenage Fanclub tonight? Look at this set list from Chapel Thrill! I got the set list last time I saw them play in NYC as well as the first time I saw them play in 1992. Needless to say, those are prized possesions.
On occasion of this momentus show(TFC have to be one of my top five favorite bands ever and this is just the fourth time I’ve seen them), I give you the Which Creation Band Are You quiz. **Taken down by suggestion of Peabs as he says it installs spyware on your machine and my site has been acting weird since I put it up. I was Ride, because I am fucking awesome, obvs.

    While I was home in CA a few weeks ago I naturally drove quite a bit to get from place to place. (First time behind the wheel in a long, long while.)
    My parents’ back-up car has an AM/FM/cassette in the dash, so I was stuck listening to terrible radio stations as I had no cassettes handy. But I did run across one interesting interview on some San Fran AM station. It was with the author of the book Spring Forward and I found it completely fascinating. One thing he said many times was that daylight savings was never about saving energy. It got pushed at the beginning of the 20th century by department stores that wanted the revenues from an extra hour of shopping. It’s always been about money, not saving energy and not doing it for the sake of farmers (who, according to the author, were against the creation of daylight savings). I have a feeling that the move to extend daylight savings by two months is for the same reason even though it’s part of an energy bill.
    I’ve gotta get that book.

    i only played two shout out louds songs, although i suppose some may say that even one shout out louds song is one shout out louds song too many. lesson learned: a lot of swedish indie pop sounds a lot like shout out louds. anyway, i’m a good sport, and have to congratulate you on a job well done (even if i am not agreeing with you declaring yourself the winner).

    Loops of Fury… I wish I was there, if only to hear that bomb go off. Ya know, I’ve been here (and by here, I mean Alexandria) a month and a half now, I really should start getting out to all these shows and events you mention, because they sound like a fucking blast. Goddamn lazy unemployed drunkiness!
