New Avatar for Biff

In honor of Biffs most recent Jazzy post to the Feldheim I offer a new avatar for him:
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you:

Jason Bratman.

Wu Orleans

Another mash up for you crazy kids, Wu Orleans is Wu-tang tracks mixed with Dixie Jazz. I must agree with Boing Boing, When the Meth Comes Marching in is quite a treat.

Surely one of has to be pissed that I keep giving mash ups valuable Feldheim space. This is better than the crap hip hop on BET. Handguns make me horny. Oprah's a bitch. John F. Kennedy deserved to get shot. Someone? Anyone? Is anybody even reading this?

New Post Coming Soon

So i spent the begining of the month celebrating my new job offer then it was off to iceland where I met a photographer who is friends with sigur ros (You can view some of his photos here) Then it was off to the UK where inaddition to buying my first record and nearly floating away on fish and chips i saw this swedish group live reaffirming my belief that all things Norse are superior. So I appologise for not posting sooner, but now that I'm back I promise another post real soon. In the meantime I highly recommend Reyjavik as your next vacation destination.

"groundbreaking" may not be the words I would have chosen to describe the software, but cool sure as hell is. It's simple fun, and does exactly what it's supposed to do. iTunes integration makes the software easy and intuitive. The work of students in munich, this is surely a boon to any music minded mac user.

Toonces, looks like it's time to switch....

What are your thoughts Feldheim macheads?

And all of you: where are your posts?

I'm in a developing naiton on another continent and I'm still posting!

Baby, Hold on to 'heim

Oh No You Di-ihnt!

Yes; That, my friends, is street talk for 'didn't,' a negative contraction. It is your predicted and inevitable reaction to the utter brilliance of my Feldheim post. My preemptive answer to your purported retort is:

Yes, in fact, I did.

An old favorite since high school, Hed PE just released a new album: Back to Base X. Basics. I wanted to heed the call of hed and follow their lead of retuning to what made us. Now I'm infamously a Metal Head. Yes I can appreciate classic rock and the occasionally debateably indie disc. But few metal heads are born metal heads. Yes, in 4th and 5th grade I listened to MC Hammer and Arrested Development like the rest of us.

But even before that, I am not ashamed to admit, it was pop. B104, the local FM pop station, that played Cutting Crew and En Vogue was what raised me. So I am posting Sound of Money, the greatest hits of Eddie Money.

Fuck you all, I love it.

Eddie Money is about as uncool as they get. Even more uncool than using the word uncool. I mean at least Rod Stewart had the Faces. Phil Collins had Genesis and somehowk new his entire career path was destined to mirror Peter Gabriel, only with greater mediocrity. Hell, Kenny G performed with Barry white early in His career.

But I don’t think there’s a person alive who has ever said, "Eddie Money? Nah just his old stuff…" Maybe Eddie never got a hit to break into the top ten. Tom Cochrane got into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, but that's like saying you scaled the highest mountain in Wisconsin. I like Life is a Highway, but what else has he accomplished besides having ridiculous hair?

To his credit, Eddie Money is only one step up from Richard Marx, whose douchebagginess far exceeds the levels of most American Idol contestants. However, Richard Marx is actually a hermaphrodite.

It’s a fact.

I mean you did just read it on the internet…..

So whereas as most late 80's/90's frontmen of pop were crap, Eddie Money is grouped along with the bunch. But he had four hits: Baby Hold on to Me, Take me Home Tonight, Two Tickets to Paradise, and Take me home tonight. Phil Collins? Name on phil Collins song besides Sudio. You can’t. Baby Hold On to me is a lover’s song. But a great one. Dave Grohl covered it on Conan. So? Defy this logic:

Dave Grohl was in Nirvana.
Dave Grohl can play guitar AND drums.
Elton John Sang Tiny Dancer.
Tiny Dancer is regarded as a great song.
Dave Grohl Covered 'Tiny Dancer' on Conan.
Coincidence?
No.


Despite how sexy Baby Hold on to Me happens to be, the undeniably brilliant hook of Take Me Home Tonight and Two Tickets to Paradise are the sounds to which many virginities were lost in station wagons. At least I think they're about sex. Cause, you know, I haven’t exactly, uh, been….with, you know……a lady.

Still, If you find a song that has the sexiness of these two combined with chantability, inform me, for I think it not possibility. Here I Go Again is about masturbation. Living on a Prayer is a song about a guy named Tommy who used to work on the docks.

Not sexy.

So if you believe there are sexier chant songs out there, throw em in the comments. Then Check out Eddie’s greatest hits. And rock out with a hairsprayed babe while you’re at it.

Fill the Chuck Out

Ok. I was in scotland the past week, on a penninsula reachable only by boat and having flaming glass of drambuie stuck to my bum. The week before that I drove 3000 miles in just under 72 hours. Please note, 18 of those hours were spent in south dakota. The week beofre that, i went skydiving.

All this, as well as preparation for and interfuckingcontinental move has prevented me from posting to feldheim.

I will ahve a post ready by the end of this week

What's your excuse?

To keep this Indie thing going……between the four of us at least…….I am posting an Indie record from an Indie band. Angela earlier alluded to the varieties of the interpretations of Indie. Well, here’s one of them.

An amazing band. An Indie band.
