I could listen to

Old Hüsker Dü 45s

On an old Fisher-Price portable turntable

And it would still have greater fidelity

Than you


Husker Du - Candy Apple Grey

SONG OF THE DAY: Hüsker Dü - "Celebrated Summer"

I had originally written a post a couple of weeks ago about “Celebrated Summer” as a post-Labor Day song for Feelin’ Good Friday. Maybe a loud/soft/loud punk song that makes me tear up generally is not typical of good feelings, but it’s one of my all time favorite songs and is fitting given the time of year. 336 more words

Music Ramblings

Grant Hart, and where’s the new stuff?

A slight apology for the slight drop off in posts so far this month. While I could say I’ve been struggling a bit with some frailties,  there’s also been an element of needing to prod myself to get going again after reaching and exceeding the original goals of the Parlando Project. 318 more words
