Thursday Twee

The Ramones arrive to save the day

The Ramones

Underneath those leather jackets, behind the raw tireless sound and in-your-face attitude, beyond "Punk", lies some of the best pop music that has ever graced this sad and beautiful world.

Well kids, there's an indiepop tribute!


No More of Your Fairy Stories - An indiepop loveletter to the Ramones (various artists) from Precordial Catch Records

Friday on Twee Time, I will be playing selected tracks from this sold-out compilation. For now, how about a little taste of what's to come?

Today's track Don't Go by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (composed by Joey Ramone)

Thanks to Taylor for the heads up!

Wednesday Twee

This is the first installment of the Daily Twee, wherein I post little twee things for your viewing, reading, and listening pleasure... every day of the week! Expect music, video, links, quotes, show and CD reviews, listings, news, "tweevia" (trivia), and images of cute kittens and Blythe dolls.

Today's quote is from my friend Sam:

You know you're an old washed up indie pop scenester when you listen to some new band and it sounds like Aislers Set or Talulah Gosh to you but all the reviews compare it to Best Coast and Vivian Girls.

Today's video You're Kidding Aren't You by the Field Mice. From the 10" mini album Snowball (Sarah 402), released in 1989.

Today's track Dream Baby Dream by Black Tambourine. From the compilation Black Tambourine (Slumberland), released in 2010, which has their complete recordings and six new songs.

Today's Tweevia Dream Baby Dream is a cover, originally recorded by the protopunk band Suicide.

Wherein I post about the one


My kitty MooMoo was sick at the veterinarian on and off for the last two weeks. He is 16 years old, so his kidneys have an insufficiency. Now he is eating a special low-protein diet.

I can't stress how important is it to take your cat to the vet if they show signs of lethargy, or become constipated, or have diarrhea (that symptom can be a sign that they are constipated).

It was so scary. Signs of his illness became apparent, and I whisked him away to the veterinarian, a year to the exact day Grendel died.

The Moo is still here, and I am so glad we're together again!

His follow-up appointment is at the end of this month.

Wherein I post about what I'm up to tonight

Listening: The Yardbirds and Elvis Presley. I feel like listening to Rock and Roll these days.

Watching: Daria. Just the other day I was wondering why the series never dealt with the topic of Daria having sex, only to discover that I had two episodes missing from my collection. In "My Night at Daria's", Daria and Tom innocently fall asleep, and Tom gets caught by Jake as he tries to sneak out at 4:00AM. A misunderstanding on Quinn's part begins a rumour that Daria and Tom are having sex. Some stuff happens, and Daria remains a virgin.

Reading: The spines of all the books on my book shelf that I bought and have yet to read because I'm lazy.

Wearing: Frizzy hair, white tank, cut-off jean shorts, and (as always) red lipstick traces.

Wanting: A damn Snapple. I bought one with the last 2$ I had to my name, then I dropped it as I tried to unlock my door, which was stuck due to the humidity. This depressed me. The Snapple was peach iced tea, and I was really looking forward to it.

Wherein I post North East West South

The Twee Time podcast on podomatic is on hiatus until I can justify the paid account. Money is tight right now, and with those September birthdays looming, I need to save my pennies for family celebration.

The good news is, you can listen to Twee Time live on CJLO 1690AM every Friday starting at 8 P.M.

It has been forever since my beloved 5D Mark the Second has been used. I really need to fix that.

For now:

Wherein I post about the rich getting richer

Karl Lagerfeld for Coca-Cola

What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca Cola, too. A coke is a coke and no amount of money can get you a better coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the cokes are the same and all the cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it. --Andy Warhol
