  3. I knew that Neil Finn had some Crowded House music coming out soon. I didn’t expect a new single to drop tomorrow. Pleasantly surprised!
  4. Yesterday
  5. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/jeff-tweedy-new-album-book-election-interview-1079155/ Really good interview with Jeff. I thought it was interesting that he said he's got Together Again (vol 2 of the acoustic loft sessions) in the can, but it's not on the release schedule. Hopefully that will see the light of day sooner than later! Also some hopeful comments about a new Wilco record that has me pretty fucking excited.
  6. Just finished it last night and I have pretty much the same opinion. I also write songs at a slow trickle (been writing for about 20 years and I've got around 30 songs to show for it) but I still learned a lot from reading the book. And it's such an easy read I can see myself reading it again from time to time. I particularly benefitted from the stuff about writing lyrics because I've always found making the music easier but lyrics are more difficult. I'm quite grateful that he put in the effort to write this book. He'll inspire more people to make their own art. His idea that the best music for him is the music that inspires him to make his own music really resonated with me. There are some artists who I hear and all I want to do after listening to them is pick up a guitar and write some songs. Jeff is one of those artists to me (which he'd probably be happy to hear). After finishing the book I tried the "write a song with a time limit" exercise. I had one chord progression kicking around for the last two weeks and as I put the kettle on to boil some water, I thought, "let me work on this song until the kettle whistles". I didn't quite finish the song, but I got some nice melodies, some new related chord progressions, and a few good lyrics. It's sort of 80% there instead of what it had been 10 minutes earlier, which was just a single chord progression and nothing more. And I will work on it more today! It was also a nice surprise (though not too surprising, I guess) to hear how much Jeff loves the song "Andromeda" by Weyes Blood. Such a good one. For those who haven't heard it,...
  7. If you buy the cd now, as a preorder, you will also receive a free download of the album. So while you won't get your cd until January, you can listen to the download immediately. I like cd's so I've just downloaded & burned to cd.
  8. Last week
  9. Same - we got about 30 minutes in and lost interest. The skit I remember was when he was dictating a fax to some poor old guy working at the neighborhood Kinkos.
  10. I'm pretty sure he mentioned that he wanted to get this record out there and the production of CDs and vinyls take time, especially now with COVID.
  11. I enjoyed the performance & like the new record plenty. I tried to go buy the cd but was surprised to find out it won't be released until January. Things sure have changed regarding marketing.
  12. Don't miss this appearance! Jeff Tweedy on CBS This Morning, 10-24-20
  13. “Opaline” is already one of my favourite JT songs, full stop.
  14. Thanks it was a very nice time!
  15. Borat just doesn’t do it for me. Even knowing the Rudy scene was ahead couldn’t keep me watching. I gave up about 30 mins in. I just don’t find the character or premise all that funny or interesting. 🤷‍♂️
  16. Haven't had time yet to watch it all, but the first half is magnificent...the setting, Jeff's voice, the songs chosen...thanks for sharing this, and I can't wait to watch the rest!
  17. That'll be a blast! Have a great time!
  18. WOW! Take me to the Islands, Mon! That was pure tropical delight.
  19. I really enjoyed it, but... Special Thanks to Neuroglue for bringing back the Spoiler tag feature. It’s the EYE in the toolbar.

  21. I really enjoyed this. Especially the debutante ball.
  22. Yes! It sounds very live but still pristine quality. Some parts remind me of Neil’s Harvest and other parts feel like some 50s country band. The music feels so real and it has depth.
  23. In 1942 both Citizen Kane and The Maltese Falcon were Best Picture nominees. Neither won. Last night I watched the movie that beat out both to win the big prize.
  24. Thanks!! I have such withdrawal I am way more excited then I would normally be 😎. Bringing my kids too for their second ever concert after the Jayhawks 😏
  25. Enjoy! Lord, I miss live music!!
