Do you know what I love most about WFMU? That they dilligently collect bizzaro covers, so I don't have to. You know, like this collection of "Stairway to Heaven" covers. I like the one by the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra best, it is TOTALLY CHEEZY IN THE BEST WAY. The glass harmonica one is pretty rad too -- because glass harmonicas, outside of theremins and pump organs and alto recorders and farfisas and melodicas, are the best instruments ever.
I found this archive of old school hip hop yesterday, and really, could you ask for anything better? (YO CHILL!)
Some random selections from the archive as I rushed out the door this morning -- I've been running late every day this week; I hate it when that happens.
The Mountain Goats -- Cut Yr. Hair (Pavement cover, live, unknown date but pretty old -- sorry for the bad quality)
Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood -- Some Velvet Morning
Goldfrapp -- Number One (Mum remix)
I have a very show-ful weekend: Tonight is Just Guns/Benko/The Normans/Darling New Neighbors at Trophy's, which is the best kind of show because it requires so little effort to walk there from Pinkie's apartment; tomorrow is John Vanderslice (with Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday)/Laura Veirs/Minus Story at Emo's. It will be ultra nice to see JV and the boys (insert orgasmic "BROECKER!" shriek here) and we're making them some cupcakes. I've nowt seen Ms. Veirs and am not the biggest fan but I've been coming around to her lately, and I'm ultra-excited to see Minus Story again, they really blew me away the first time I saw them last year.
Anyway, other than that I don't have any big plans -- I kind of need a haircut and I really need to clean my apartment. Thrills!
