Okay – so it’s Luke’s birthday HAPPY BIRTHDAY PANTHERSAN
I picked up my record player in a suitcase and headed to the wilds of Japan’s countryside (via China so they could make my record player) and I grabbed a few slabs of vinyl for a party game.
What connects the songs?
DON”T TYPE IN THE ANSWER – just say YEAH, I GOT IT – when you work it out.
and we’ll wait until the birthday boy knows what the link is.

Ali’s photo for Earworms reminded me of two fantastic videos – The Hidden Camera’s video is so powerful it takes over the brilliant song. Based on an old comic Joel wrote – it’s been a live favourite for a while. The short film has been shown at festivals in Berlin and Canada to much acclaim. The freedom of the birds over the field at the start is rather significant.
Another film that uses the flight of birds as a metaphor for escape is Leonard Cohen’s – First We Take Manhattan, their flight is deliberately juxtaposed against the songs beat to discombobulate.

I need help – yep that’s right – anyone with psychiatric training and/or a straight jacket.. could they quietly step forward.
opps – wrong thread …
Brother of the Ms. is getting married in a couple of weekends time – and in a unique and interesting twist on wedding DJ theme – he and his partner put out a call for 3 tunes from each guest that would be played after the proper entertainment. This might have become hipster jokes, genuine diversity of taste, random sticking a pin in a iPod or whatever. But I have exhausted my tunes .. can anyone help? (anonymously if need be)
It’s not your everyday indie shambles with barely a tune in their collective fingertips – not pounding, pounding techno music – not even speed garage or ska punk.
Nope – I need help getting ummm heehee – these tunes:

Caroline Wheeler’s Birthday Present was made entirely from the skins of dead Jim Morrisons (Scattered over dawn’s bleeding highway, I suppose…): that’s why it smelled so bad.
So she goes to the elevator, she thinks “Well, that’ll be pretty straightforward” (Yes, STRAIGHT UP, Caroline…) You know what she finds?
The elevator breaks down with Caroline and the fish in it.
Do you know what happens if you leave a fish too long in an elevator?
Well, here’s a clue: fish is biodegradable. (THAT MEANS IT ROTS.)

Trash ONE – add ONE
yep, this week the rules have changed – I like changing rules!
We have a wobbly based FANGS playlist, if you would be so kind as to trash your least favourite, I’ll be mildly angry and after your blood. But you can make it up to me with an added bonus track.
I’d also like to know a movie or book that you’d recommend on the subject – AIP’s a closet Twilight fan, heehee (he’s been listening to the soundtrack – not reading the books or watching the movie – he’s not imploded with pressure that much) – keep it Vampires – I’ll do a wolf playlist next time I get a go.
