I Knew I Had A Lot Of Garbage...

...but I didn't realize that I had this much. I hope I find a good home for all of it.

I'll pay five bucks to come over and roll around naked on the pile for a minute or two.

Well, when the third and fourth releases progressively live down to the band's name, it kind of takes the life out of even the most ardent fanbois.

Ah, to be back in 1996...

Wow, that is quite a collection. I still have my pink Garbage t-shirt that you gave me about 10 years ago, remember that? You could always try opening the bid to Australia(unless shipping there would be too inconvenient) because they were still really popular when I was there this summer.

Yes, it sold. I'm trying to think about how much it would have sold for 7 years ago.

(Nope, not working.)

DM, it's not worth it, if I did that then I would have to wonder about so many things, like what if i hadn't sold those original IBM and Microsoft stocks for a cow. This guy said he got some kid to give him the cow for some "magic beans" ahahahaha "magic beans"? that's rich

“I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse,” “The Godfather,” 1972.

Some things are better left uncovered

Sometimes you hear a cover and go to yourself, "hey, that's doper than Sam Perkins at Woodstock." Other times, you wonder (possibly aloud) "that no talent hack! They couldn't even carry [inset original artist here]'s guitar case!" [Ed. note: You should have seen what the author originally wanted to use as the carried item. Believe us, it wasn't a guitar case.]

Today was an example of the second. Some fool whose name I cannot even spare the mental RAM for, has covered "High and Dry" by the esteemed Radiohead. This is up there. With the worst covers of all time. Some songs just don't ever need to be covered. Like this one. And like "It's My Life" by Talk Talk. But No Doubt did a decent job with that one, although they crapped all over it with that video.

This one today was bad. When you do a cover, you're supposed to bring something to it. Maybe your sound is similar to the original artist's, and you b…

Review: Eddie Izzard at The Coronet Theatre

Saturday turned into a date night without even trying. I made dinner for my lovely wife and then we went out to see maybe the finest working stand up commedian today, Eddie Izzard. No, he's not touring right now. He was in LA doing four nights in this tiny 99-seat theatre, working out new material.

He came on about 9 pm, as scheduled (I don't think he realized he was in LA) and proceeded to do mostly new stuff for 90 minutes. He was in bloke mode, no dress or makeup.

Given the size of the crowd, he would occasionally get into conversations with us about the accuracy of some of his historical jokes. He did reference some of his earlier bits, but that's his style if you've listened to or seen more than one of his shows. Some of the new stuff was quite the hysterical. Great bit about houseflies. He wrapped up with "The Deathstar Canteen" from Circle, but a bit altered, which was kind of like the Rolling Stones playing Satisfaction live and extending the so…
