Sorry if you thought the latest show sucked. I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't get to play Kanda or Bearsuit again. But I did get "Bloody Stumps" in. I had to play that again. I know at least one listener actually liked that song.
I'm going to play at least a couple more Nirvana songs next week. There's this cover song that I really should play because it's not on With the Lights Out. (With the Lights Out is the box set of Nirvana rarities and demos that was released last year). So, I'm going to play that cover next week.
Oh, and another disappointing thing about the show is that I forgot about this one version of "I'm Sad the Goat Just Died Today" by the Frogs in which they replace the word "goat" with "pope". FUCK!
And no, I don't have With the Lights Out. I just started using iTunes (the RIAA and antivirus people have me too worried about using the illegal stuff), and there are a bunch of songs from With the Lights Out on it. So, I got some to play on this last show. It didn't have all the songs from With the Lights Out on it, though, so I'm going to have to buy those songs all over again if I do get the actual box set.
Besides that, I also got those Ladytron live tracks from iTunes. Those were actually from the reissue of 604. That's really neat if you think about. Instead of buying a reissue to get the extra tracks, you can buy the extra tracks online.
Just for the hell of it, I checked to see if they had anything by Kiddo, and they actually do have "This Could Take Forever" on there. So, if you don't want to buy Boompa Vol. 1 (the compilation that it's on), you can just get that one song for 99 cents.
Edit: Actually, you can download that song for free from Kiddo's MySpace page.
Finally, I don't know if any of you would give a shit, but Rockstar Games is offering the first and second Grand Theft Auto games for free download. Of course, they're not as cool as GTA3 and everything after that, but they were great for their time and a very good deal to get for free. GTA2 is a 350+ MB download, though, so don't get it if you don't have access to a fast connection. Go here if you're interested. And yes, they are the full games, not just shareware demos.
GTA is so not twee. Maybe I should stop liking it. Hello Kitty wouldn't play GTA.
I bet that Hello Kitty would go to the church of Tetris. Blockiness is next to godliness! Tetris was the true messiah! Tetris brought about the end of communism. Realize the truth before it's too late!
I bet Tetris stopped Atilla the Hun from completely conquering the Roman empire, too. People just didn't know because they didn't have TV screens back then.
Tetris was way cool.
But anyway, Tetris is probably cute enough for Hello Kitty.

Oh, and before I end this post, I just want to say that the Dream Bitches rule. I only got to play one song by them and didn't get to talk about it much during the last show, but trust me when I say that they role. They're from the same NYC antifolk scene that the Moldy Peaches came from, but they're also quite twee, too. Visit their site by clicking here.
On next week's show, we have selections from the new Of Montreal album, stuff from the new Palomar EP (Palomar 3.5), and other stuff that you'll love because I'm so good at picking music to play!
