I miss my homeland. This has been a very good (albeit teary) week.

  • As a Cubs fan I can’t even tell you how jealous I am that your team won. Baseball is my sport, so it’s sad I’ve been saddled with loving a franchise that is doomed. However, I really did enjoy the WS this year (judging by the numbers I was one of the few) and the Giants really showed up and deserved it.

    Also, Brian Wilson is a national treasure.

    Hope the shows are ridiculous this week. Still very bummed I don’t live near Denver, though I did pass along the show information to the one friend I have that lives in the area and told her she needed to go see The Head and the Heart.

  • Oh but if you really want to get nostalgic about SF you can’t forget Piazza New York Catcher (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ugnh4nZtwI) or the Decemberists’ Grace Cathedral Hill (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEjgf6tMlZc).

    So many good songs about San Francisco, it just seems to generate amazingness.

  • ohhh, i was just thinking of Piazza New York Catcher. That one has a special connection for me and still kinda kills me everytime I hear it. “Meet you at the statue in an hour.”

    Let’s make a Bay Area playlist. I would also add something by Rancid to represent the South Bay (“took the 60 bus out of downtown campbell…”)

    What else?

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
