  1. Wow. Fell asleep before this part, because I'm old, and that's also the reason I remember Free To Be. Which I haven't thought about in 40+yrs. That was my 'go-to' phrase when I was a kid and my mom would call me out on a faux pas or infraction of some sort...."free to be, you and me, mom". References like this is one the reasons it's so fun watching the Tweedy Show.
  2. Last night's show was so much fun. Angst can make for a good time, on occasion.
  3. Haven't seen any other posts regarding this yet, so.....just listened to a good conversation between JT and Malcolm Gladwell on Gladwell's (and Rick Rubin's) podcast Broken Record. They talk about the HOW TO..... book, of course, and there's a great breakdown of OPALINE. It's really interesting to hear Gladwell become so engaged and excited. He keeps probing and it gives some insight into his own process, given how in depth his work gets. https://brokenrecordpodcast.com/#/episode-77-jeff-tweedys-songwriting-masterclass/
  4. Thanks to the Tweedy's for this bright highlight in 2020. The Tweedy Show's been a warm reminder that things can be normal, sweet and fun amidst the chaos. Here's to 2021, live music and a few more TS's before we settle into the future, without the looming menace of COVID around every corner. Btw, my wife and I were just chatting about how we watch the re-runs on YT, but can mirror the Insta re-runs to get them sooner if we want. I prefer YT because the comments come with it, which is a huge part of the show. Susie Tweedy is the hostess with the mostess; an MC who brings out a lot
  5. Thanks for these recaps. They are a great guide, as we usually watch the YouTube's well after original air. Last night the alert popped up that the show was starting but we were not quite finished zooming a John Hiatt performance, which was good for the soul. It was the first of two (pkg ticketed), the next being 8/31. Last night he played BRING THE FAMILY and SLOW TURNING, each in full, and the next will have a set list and banter. It was basically like being on a zoom call with him.....and 30 others. I'm going on about this because I think what the Tweedys are doing is more genuine and m

    This is great....simply because Billy Gibbons and Jeff pair up for a Casino Queen bonus track... https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/12289
  7. Saw OHMME last night at the Bug Jar in Rochester, NY. They were great! Beautiful voices and great guitar interplay. Drummer is good, too. Go see them....Detroit tonight @ Deluxx Fluxx, and touring the midwest and west until end of May. Then, SSF on 6/29. We'll be in front.
  8. Friday prediction.....they debut a new album by playing it in its entirety.
  9. Hell Is Chrome.....for the imagery, minimal production and the guitar solo, which sounds like ice forming on a window pane in time lapse. The bouncy open of the song, which fades, is the yellow gold morning sun getting slowly fazed out by a bitter snow squall, that begins with tiny ice crystals and becomes an enveloping gray-blue haze.
  10. Yo! http://www.norahjones.com/news-1/2018/9/21/a-song-with-no-name-out-now
  11. Nice! One more reason to watch! And listen!
  12. This film sounds great, looking forward to watching. On another note....if anyone hasn't seen them yet, go see The Sadies, if you ever get the chance. They are one of the most talented, hard working bands in action. They'll be touring with Kurt Vile early next year, btw. Check em out!
