Dundee United – Pay Attention!

Enough said.  I’d love to see some Dundee United apparell in a similar veign.  Dundee United, please pay attention!

but Katy Perry’s hot.  Did I ever mention I have collection of Katy Perry guitar picks??  She’s not a good musician, but hot, so here’s something else just for the sake of it:

and just incase we forget she’s a musician:

Write It And Then Delete It

You know what.  Loads of things piss me off.  I am regularly tempted to vent all my frustrations on this blog.   The rage that I sometimes feel about an idiotic customer, something insane I read in a magazine or online, or even just humans in general is very real.  And I want to write about it sometimes.  But I don’t like writing in that manner.  I like to write about things I love.  Things that inspire me.  Things that fill my life with happiness.  Not things that make me angry, frustrated or just worn out.  So I’ve developed a method of dealing with it.  Basically, I write the post down, get it all out of my system, leave it for a bit and then delete it.  It’s a great way of exorcising the demons before they get me into trouble and I’d recommend it to anyone who is tempted to write something hasty on their blog.  It’s a dangerous thing.  Perhaps I should have taken more time to reflect on the Ultimate Thrush post that got me into so much trouble rather than just posting it?  I don’t know.  But what I do know is that when I write something now, I live with it for a while before it’s published.  Getting the words down on paper though helps immensely.  It really does.  So from now on there will no hasty posts.  However, I am not ruling the possibility out that when I do write something down in a rage and live with it for a while that I won’t post it.  If it makes sense, if it’s important, I’ll post it.  But today’s rant is firmly in the trash!

Thank You Beck….

….check this out people.  This is cool.  As most people know, I don’t really like cover albums, but this is a slightly different slant I think.  From what I’ve read it’s bands covering entire albums of somebody else’s work in a day.  It’s the brainchild of Beck and he describes it:

Record Club is an informal meeting of various musicians to record an album in a day. The album chosen to be reinterpreted is used as a framework. Nothing is rehearsed or arranged ahead of time. A track is put up here once a week. As you will hear, some of the songs are rough renditions, often first takes that document what happened over the course of a day as opposed to a polished rendering. There is no intention to ‘add to’ the original work or attempt to recreate the power of the original recording. Only to play music and document what happens. And those who aren’t familiar with the albums in question will hopefully look for the songs in their definitive versions.

I like this idea and am intrigued by the results.  Enjoy
