Here’s some video cheesiness for you. This is what we do when we’re in the studio all the time. Believe that.

This is your brain on Hogs.

today’s specials.

Totally random post title but does anyone remember the Today’s Special TV show from Nickelodeon in the 80s? No? I thought not. Moving on…

While searching for bacon-related sound bytes for liners I discovered a blog that has more center cut bacony goodness than this site could ever hope to have. Royal Bacon Society. I’m quite surprised neither I, nor any of my Camp Bacon cohorts discovered it sooner. Much like density popped George McFly to Lorraine Bates in Back to the Future (1.21 gigawatts!) it was this post and google that popped me to the Royal Bacon Society. I haven’t had a chance to fully explore the site but I’m sure when I’ve got time away from studying Spanish, I’ll give it the once over. Aside from my favorite bacon-related quote of all time, “butter that bacon,” I found a new one which I had not heard before, which is “Mmmm. Move over, eggs. Bacon just got a new best friend – fudge.” Classic.

If anyone listened to the show today we cut out twice. Once was because the engineers were working on fixing something and once was because I played Juliana Hatfield’s “Spin the Bottle” but forgot about the line, “she is such a sucker, he don’t wanna fuck her.” I managed to cut the CD player for a second just in time to avoid an FCC violation. Oops. Really good song, though. I heart Juliana Hatfield.

My Bhopal Stiffs CD came yesterday so I played “Bottle It Up,” the first song on their 1985-1989 compilation. It’s good, good stuff. In a related note, I also played some Pegboy. For the Camp Bacon crew, and also Evan Reser, I played a little Sonseed with “Jesus Is A Friend Of Mine” but I couldn’t play the Jesus/Flea Market mashup because we’re not able to play from the computer right now (that’s what the engineers were working on.) That ability should be back next week and I plan on hitting you all with some extra fun stuff, including She and Him.

I discovered today that my favorite soul label, Daptone Records had their studio broken and a bunch of equipment was stolen. Not only should you check their site out and buy stuff (because it’s all pretty much awesome) but, if you feel inclined, you should buy a drink for Daptone and donate to help them buy mics, preamps, etc. Or don’t, whatever. If you want my personal recommendation, you can never go wrong with the smooth automatic soul of Binky Griptite & The Mellomatics.

That’s all I’ve got for now, time for radio class. Stay tuned.

wicked awesome update action.

I’m going to start doing some theme shows, if you have a theme you’d like me to do, e-mail me, post it in the comments, whatever.

Upcoming themes are “Depression’s Got A Hold Of Me” (that’s a Black Flag lyric, in case you didn’t know) and “Uppity Women Unite” during which I’m going to play some of my favorite female artists in honor of Take Back The Night. Sadly I won’t be attending the pre- and post-TBTN festivities this year because, gasp, I have to work.

In other news, there is such a thing as canned bacon. When the baconpocalypse comes, you know what I’ll be scarfing.

Watched the film Smoke Signals in my Fiction Into Film class and it is an awesome movie. The screenplay was written by Sherman Alexie, based on his collection of short stories, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven which everyone should read inmyhumble opinion.

I’ve been listening to The Shins Chutes Too Narrow and The Strokes Room On Fire albums a lot lately. Don’t know why, exactly. Also, I’ve got some Bhopal Stiffs coming in the mail soon so expect to hear them on my show at some point in the near future.

I’ve become obsessed with the Fiery Furnaces so, more than likely, you’ll be hearing some stuff from them, also. I want to play their entire Blueberry Boatalbum but I’m pretty sure I’m not going to subject people to that. Mad props to Jeph Jacques, who writes/draws Questionable Content for referencing the Fiery Furnaces in a few of his comics and getting me into them. They’re still not as awesome as Camera Obscura, who, incidentally, have a new album coming out on April 20th.

Here’s the title track:

That’s your wicked awesome action update for now. Stay tuned for more bullshittery and bacon-flavored madness.

I leave you with 4 Gregs. Enjoy!
