I am made of blue sky and hard rock and I will live this way forever.

Three things that I was reminded of yesterday

So after last night’s highly uninspiring American Idol, I watched the Coachella DVD.  The performances were generally pretty good, but it was limited to one song per band (I didn’t bother watching the Chili Peppers to see if they were granted more) and there was really no documentary footage beyond one or two kids talking about playing hacky sack or scalping tickets between each band.  The best performances were Belle and Sebastian, the Arcade Fire and Radiohead.  The Mars Volta was pretty eh.  Everyone else was pretty eh. 

Oh, but what I was getting to – the Pixies were just phenomenal, and it seems like I forget every so often just how good they were.  When I listen to Nirvana now, it seems a bit dated and doesn’t get me going quite like it used to.  The Pixies, however, are just eternally awesome.

Also awesome:  Goo Goo Clusters.  I hadn’t had one in forever and found one in the snack bin in the breakroom.  So good.

Not awesome:  the Polyphonic Spree.  Stupid neckbearded permasmiling hippie crap.  This wasn’t good when it was called “Up With People”.

  1. 1: YES! After hearing the Pixies, I am wondering why people are still wearing Nirvana T-shirts. The Pixies did it better, and wearing the same shitty t-shirt is not going to bring Kurt back.

    2: Sounds gross to me, but whatever.

    3: Suffering from SADs I hate happy music when winter rolls around. Makes me want to puke.
