Bringin’ the Boogie #4

Hello again, one and all, and hasn’t it been a while since we last had one of these? My defence, if I might be allowed to offer one, is that until recently I hadn’t been listening to huge amounts of new music. However, I have rediscovered my affection for WKIT-FM, a rock station operating out of Bangor, Maine, and owned by America’s boogeyman-in-chief, Stephen King.

With that in mind, let’s kick off with a band that is making big waves on the other side of the Atlantic, even if they’re not really rippling over here (yet): Dave Matthews Band, with “Why I Am” –

…And now for something completely different: “Fireflies”, by Owl City –

(Better quality link)

Rather better than Counting Crows, these are The Black Crowes, with an excellent piece of acoustic guitar work – the sublime “She Talks To Angels”

This is cool: the Foo Fighters’ “Wheels”, a new single cheekily first released on their greatest hits album –

Finally, for a change of pace, these are the Blind Boys of Alabama, covering the Tom Waits song “Way Down in the Hole”. (Yes, TV fans, this is the version used as title music for the first season of The Wire, which is amazing – West Wing good, albeit Tarantino sweary) –

And so I leave you with news that shortages of body armour are more widespread than previously acknowledged…

Is that a blaster burn round her belly button?

Even Imperial forces are having to make do as best they can. And they can't do much better.

…and the most recent thing to fall victim to the rise of legions of the triumphant undead is, sadly, chocolate cake…

Don't suck the icing. IT WILL SUCK BACK.

…mistranslations lead to accusations of animal cruelty as those for whom English is a second language open a hot dog stand…

Add mustard, and it goes like stink!

…and finally, irrefutable evidence has been presented to support the claim that greater internet interactions are adversely affecting real-world social activity:

Personally, I find a shoe catalogue and a large net work well.
