Oasis - Glastonbury 23-06-1995 Hello

equal parts beatles and sex pistols

Oasis performed back-to-back concerts at Knebworth on August 10 and August 11, 1996. The band sold out both shows within minutes; 375,000 people over two nights (2.5 million people applied for tickets, and 375,000 were actually sold, meaning the possibility of 53 sold out nights),[22] at the time a record-breaking number for an outdoor concert held in the UK, and to this today the largest demand for a show in British history.[23]

Oasis - Live Forever (Glastonbury 1994)

hahaha, fuck oasis

(jay-z at glastonbury)

In April, Gallagher slammed the booking of Jay-Z to headline to festival as "wrong", declaring: "I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong."

Freaks and Geeks ending

Lindsay is really sexy, though. hmm. that song's not even bad. who am i?

shakedown street

this is the only grateful dead song i've ever heard that i can tolerate. not bad. they should have just started making disco instead of continuing to sound like someone pissing into a sink full of dishes. tie dye is still ugly,too, no matter what the current permutations of the dialectic of anti-taste tries to convince itself of.

Italian Spider-Man

Does Rocky still hold water?

This Saturday I'm coming to Philly for my nephew's 6 year old birthday. In addition to a giant balsa wood airplane I was thinking about giving him a DVD. He basically has all the typical stuff now. I've also given him every variation of learning/sports/action figure toy he could need. I was wondering though if a 6 year old in 2008 would appreciate ROCKY the movie?
I still do (only the first and second ones). In fact, I have to admit I still get the goosebumps when watching this training scene.

June 11, 2008

so today i'm super bored at work and decided to clean out my email inbox. i just came across this email from justin from sometime last year with subject line- URGENT messgae for Erin (that's his spelling error, not mine) here is what i found inside:

YMO: Taiso
just thought i'd share. happy wednesday.

Drink Up

Sonic Starbucks
Daydream Nation is 20 years old and to celebrate Sonic Youth is releasing a greatest hits album via your local Starbucks.
I haven't been a big fan of SY since Goo. Signing with Geffen didn't do anything for their music or creativity. I think Geffen owed them big though after Kim turned them on to a little band named Nirvana. Maybe staying with a major label through the crumbling of the "record industry" was a master plan of theirs climaxing with the ultimate cashing in and cashing out. I don't know if that's a bad thing. More money for more creative freedom in the future is a good thing, that much I know. Here's where I get all Andy Rooney... Is this what happened to indie rock? art rock? subculture?
It gets married, buys a house and has lattes- I mean babies. I don't expect bands to not want bigger audiences and nicer stuff but when it seems like Starbucks is the final destination for SY, I feel silly about starting the journey with them. I don't drink Starbucks and I don't really listen to SY anymore so I guess one of us has moved on to broader pastures.
But here's little taste of what was brewing 20 years ago:
