Greetings Dear Listener,
Holy crap do I have a mountain of new records to sift through. Record Store Day was a blur of under-fed, under-caffeinated activity. The only releases on my list that were missed were the Ghostbusters glow-in-the-dark 10-inch and the Pennyroyal Tea single from Nirvana.
The reissue of True Widow's first LP was worth driving across town at 6:30am on a Saturday. It was pressed on cream colored vinyl and sounds much better than the original pressing.
Due to his limited use of distributors and his unlimited frustrations with Record Store Day, Mike over at Mind Cure Records released two records of his own to get in on the festivities. Mike put out an LP by Eels and another single from the Gotobeds.
My usual preemptive strike the week before Record Store Day was extremely fruitful as well. Forthcoming episodes will be jam packed with jams.
I had another "I am old, lame and hate drunk people" moment and skipped the Julie Ruin show a few weeks ago. I am regretting that decision but I did go to see Captain America that night instead so all was not lost.
Needless to say, that movie was bad ass. And suddenly, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has suddenly gotten a lot better. Adding Patton Oswalt to the cast for a few episodes was the icing on the cake.
I started to reread X-Men: Days Of Future Past. I forgot how dry the writing for the X-Men could be. Hopefully they get that ironed out for the movie.
Speaking of the X-Men, here's the artwork for the episode:
I'm not sure what argument was rendered invalid by Muppet X-Men but I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this.
Thanks for listening.
Rock over London. Rock on Chicago.
