  1. Brilliant episode this week IMO!

    As soon as Desmond started "leaping" I was dissapointed. Mainly due to the fact that its become totally clear that they had no idea where they were going with the story and this "new development" is totally tacked on.

    It's all bollocks.

  2. Interesting, so no fresh herbs then, other than what's specified in the special ingredients. That's an awful lot of basics to choose from there though, I wonder if some people just get bewildered by the choice.

    You could make a couple of courses from the basics list.

  3. I'd wager I'm a fair bit older than yerself, but I rather like most of the Deerhoof album (not so keen on the Panda Bear and Animal Collective efforts, admittedly). Anyway, regardless of that, it's quite obviously music, and quite obviously sounds like music - just maybe not something you like. Taking Friend Opportunity as an example, about 4/5 of that album (coincidentally, the 4/5 I like) is pop-hooky and catchy as hell, with enough quirky arrangement and playing around the molten sugar core to stop it cloying - for the first few listens, in any case.

    Talking of age, did you ever like Frank Zappa? I don't think that you can listen to the last Deerhoof album without hearing a connection.

    I'm thinking of playing a couple more of the album tracks on tomorrow night's show anyway. Shallow stuff, but nice and fizzy.

    (I never read pitchfork. Or NME. Or, well, any music rag really.)

    Frank Zappa, I like frank Zappa!, in the same way I quite liked DeerHoof. What I take issue with, and its not so much issue, more massive suprise combined with deep suspicion. Frank Zappa was cool, "best album" of his era,I doubt it. he's an aquired taste. I wouldn't think any less of anyone for enjoying Mr Zappa but if I'm watching c-list celebs talking about "top whataver" lists and Zappa is at number 1, along with Jethro Tull and The teardrop exploded, being the majority choices... I become suspicious, like i do now. Of what exactly I don't know, so I'll shut up for now.

  4. I'm ready to accept that music takes various forms and that we all have different tastes, but I feel I'm in the minority because I prefer music that actually sounds like music, rather than a one man band falling down the stairs, on a heart monitor, going into cardiac arrest, in a police car, under water.

  5. Anyone catch this?

    Documentary about some mad bloked in Bodmin. One eats roadkill and another is hunting the beast of bodmin moor, both are missing a screw.

    Check it out on Iplayer

    "I'm starting to think my wife is not going to come back"

    "how long has she been gone?"

    "6 years!"

  6. I must say, I don't think I could have come up with anything as subtle or inventive as the winner did last night (the champagne sorrel sauce for instance). I would have been the one making the good, solid, tasty food and losing out for lack of ambition.

    They just flick through recipe books like everyone else.

  7. So all I'm seeing in your posts is "why doesn't everyone else like the music that I do?"

    What he's saying is "how odd that the top ten albums of 2007 contain stuff that would barely be described as music to a large section of the population, and how similar that list is to what some wanky "trendy" website says is good."

  8. I've no idea what pitchfork is but i gave all the albums in the 10 ten a good listen ( the ones i don't already own)

    I loved LCD sounds system but I can't get the list below, how they made it into a top 10 I can't understand. Says a lot really

    7 - Animal Collective - Strawberry Jam - 47

    8 - Deerhoof - Friend Opportunity - 45

    10 - Panda Bear - Person Pitch - 42

    I'm really starting to feel old.
