When will The Ranch be back for Part 7? Stay tuned for more updates and spoilers on The Ranch! Next post. The characters are well developed and the pace is just right. I eagerly look forward to more of it. Mary - April 16, Reply Love this series, keep them coming! They had a real chance to use this character and situation to show how the VA system lets vets down.
Instead they turned him into an unsympathetic jackwaggon who wasn't the least bit likeable. Little thought was given to the style aesthetics, in the same way, that Colonial, Victorian , Craftsman, and Tudor were well-defined styles with architectural and decor expectations. Fast forward 60 years, though, and the humble ranch-style home in its various forms is now often known as a mid-century modern , and owners are spending considerable effort to make them match period aesthetics.
And because they are now aging structures, these ranch-style homes are very often receiving new windows. If you are remodeling one of these homes, you are faced with the challenge of picking windows that are appropriate for the style. I suppose this one is pretty straightforward. From day one, the Feelies had pronounced aesthetic antecedents with the Velvets, making this covers set a logical and delightful pairing.
Staying faithful to the original VU arrangements to a fault at times this is quite literally the closest the youngsters in attendance at this Maxwells show would ever come to witnessing the legendary band in question. Even bassist Brenda Sauter accurately evokes Nico's tone-deaf vocal signature.

I don't think I've ever brought the topic of Green On Red up on Wilfully Obscure, save for maybe a comparison, save for maybe a passing comparison. For my money, only G on R's first two eps really moved me those and perhaps their much lauded Gas, Food, Lodging album on occasion. Still, I sprang for this promo 12" ep when I ran into it at a local shop a few days ago. But wouldn't you know it, the flipside to this glorified single is worth the trip, namely for a pair of Neil Young and Crazy Horse-indebted live cuts "16 Ways" and "Hair of the Dog" not the Nazareth song of the same name.
Topping things off is the studio outtake, "Broken Radio," a plaintive, if not slightly sarcastic Americana ballad. Reverend Luther B1.
Hair of the Dog live B2. Posted by spavid at PM 2 comments:. Boy is this one tricky to pin down. There's definitely a "wave" vibe permeating Play the Siren's overall shtick, but there's more going on here than that.
A soothing run through of John Barry's "Midnight Cowboy" closes out an intriguing, if not a little unfocused album that I have no regrets picking up. Great sleeve art on this one as well. And As the Roof Comes Down The Glow Black Man in Moscow Pink Little Elephants Don't Let it Get You Down Success Thomas Paine's Pamphlet Queen Anne's Lace Saturday, January 2, The culminaton of a story and a goodbye session: My favorite albums of the decade from hell.
It's all too convenient to say that the '00s was the weakest decade for rock music. As someone who operates a blog dedicated to the sounds of the good 'ol twentieth century it makes such a claim all the more viable and tempting.
I will say this however. Back in December of , eons before this page sprouted up, I put together a list of my favorite albums of the '90s, purely to disseminate among my friends and peers. In that decade, and ditto for the s, there were roughly quality albums that could have realistically vied for one of those coveted top spots. This time out, I absolutely struggled to come up with worthy titles. Ultimately I didn't, but I'll come back to this dilemma in a few moments.
The aughts were not about trends, at least as far as I was concerned. Though many were represented, to this set of ears this was the first decade of my existence that was devoid of any bona fide genre-breaking. Just as it's convenient to proclaim the music of the past ten years was comparatively inferior, another wholesale realization was that virtually everything dispelled in the post-Y2K era entailed: a an obvious throwback; b a rehash; c a nifty melange of multiple genres of yore, or perhaps more overarching, technological advancements applied to any of the three variations I just rattled off.
For me, the appeal of music in the past decade often pivoted on what struck my fancy during the '70s, '80s, and '90s.
This was also the scenario for a lot of people I'm acquainted with, but unfortunately, many of them took the lazy way out and subconsciously or not ceased exposing themselves to new artists, rather almost exclusively supporting established acts from the century past. The truth is, there was a lot of commendable music being churned out during this rather miserable ten-year span, but given the noticeable dearth of innovation, the bulk of it went in one ear and out the other And as much as I'm loathe to admit it, I'm as guilty as anyone else I'm referring to out there.
After you take a gander at my 90 or so picks, I know what a lot of you are bound to be scratching your head over. Saves the Day? Dashboard Confessional? Owl City? The Juliana Theory? No less than all three Motion City Soundtrack albums? Even a Fall Out Boy disk? All these out-of-place monikers on a best-of the decade list from a chap that fancies utter obscurities from the golden age of college radio? Yet some, if not all of the aforementioned and their associated ilk outlined in the list below bestowed some of the finest pop songs and albums of this decade that will resonate with me for many more to come.
These were hardly guilty pleasures though at first they certainly felt like it. In fact the aforementioned were the lifeblood of my soundtrack over recent years.
As to why I cut the cord at 95 albums instead of , I believe that over the next couple of years perhaps beyond I'll find another five albums at least from the '00s that I haven't stumbled upon yet. Instead of "dropping" albums from this list as more preferable ones make it into my stereo and MP3 player, leaving things open-ended with built-in placeholders seems pretty logical - something I failed to do with my s album list, but I digress.
Anal and self-indulgent as hell, I know In parting, I thought it would be appropriate to provide a little critique and backgrounder for my number one pick of the decade.
Additionally, even more of you are probably familiar with The Dead Weather , a side endeavor of Jack White. The link between these two groups is one Alison Mosshart who opts for the assumed name of VV when in Kills-mode. By the time they got to their third and final album, Crash Diagnostic , they weren't merely "fledgling" anymore - in fact, they had wholeheartedly arrived. Bristling with 13 raw, exposed nerves i.
While the facets I laid out in that last sentence comprised the meat and potatoes of the album's aesthetic, the glue stringing all of it together was of course Alison Mosshart's frenzied, about-to-careen-off-the-track vocal aplomb that she has yet to employ in her post-Discount ventures but I'd say masterminding the album of the decade is enough of an accomplishment. Incidentally, Crash Diagnostic was literally the first release of the year to fall into my hands, and I would be dumbstruck if you told me at the time that nothing coming down the pike in the next nine years and eleven months would top it.
You can listen to the whole thing here. Enjoy, and remember, it's only a list.

No details were spared in this uniquely designed Black Oak Builders home. The 'Pendleton' has golf course views that will take your breath away.Bay and bow windows. These were all the rage for a time, and on the right house style, they work perfectly. But ranch style is not the right style for bay or bow windows. A large picture window, on the other hand, is a true vintage feature. Ornamental glass. Ranch .
