"Believe me, you need me..."

So, you're gonna go to Pontiac tonight to see Austra, right? Because you have a brain?

ALSO, for those of you who have foolishly waited to purchase their amazingly good record Feel It Break, your foolishness is hereby rewarded: Domino just today is releasing a digital deluxe version of the record with nine bonus tracks. One of which is this chillingly beautiful cover of Roy Orbison's "Crying." Wow.

There, there, ghost... don't be cry.

Sometimes I forget how much I like Ann Arbor's Chris Bathgate. This came out on Halloween or thereabouts, but who says you can only enjoy monster and ghost themed videos at the end of October? That shit's good for any day of the year.

"We need you here..."

I reviewed the new Crooked Fingers record for Collapse Board. The short version is that I love it. The longer version can be read here. Not doing anything tonight? Go to the Magic Stick and see Crooked Fingers live. I have no doubt it'll be a great show.

My five favorite lines from Amazon one-star reviews of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

"I went into this hoping to prove the critics wrong, but 30 minutes into it, I could see why FWWM received most of it's positive press in Japan."

"Most of the actors did a fine job diespite the fact that the script seems like it was written by a 16 year old heroin addict that had only seen a handful of episodes."

"The lead actress' performance could be described as 'not believable as a human being.'"

"If you like this movie, you have no taste, and little self-respect. If you complain, 'Hey, it's just one of those movies to trip out on.' Then you haven't seen Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."

"If you liked this movie you are a pretentious tool and probably think you're the 'movie guy' at your school or job."

In case you missed the Little Scream show (and I know you did)...

... here's a little write up I did about it for Collapse Board. And if she's coming to your city, seriously go. Totally worth your time.

Caroline as my witness...

... this show totally snuck up on me. Little Scream put out one of my favorite records of the year and she's playing at Small's tonight! Should be a sweet, sweet show. Come hang out with me.
