Gome of the Week
Inappropriate album re-releases: By this, we mean the labels that put out an album at the beginning of the year and then, after the group gets real big, they put it out again with some sort of remix or b-side or DVD bonus thingy.
Way to take advantage of the fans that have already paid way too much for the CD in the first place.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Pond Fan Site - The CAC has been getting back into this band again, and do you know why? Because they are really really great. So, this is about the only appreciation site we've been able to find and it's a good one. Includes some of the lyrics to the first record, which are apparently official and are definitely hard to find. David Ballantine, turn off your Mood Paint cassette.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Project X (1987)
Yes, you have seen this movie, but it's been a while, right?
This was Matthew Broderick's follow up to Ferris Beuller, and he picked an interesting way to distance himself from the teen genre. The white mystery's girlfriend bawled so bad while watching this movie with him that he almost had to get her a paper bag because she was hyperventilating terribly.
Another bad date movie. I guess if you really want a girl to not like you, watch this and follow it with Terror Firmer.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Prime Minister Pete Nice and Daddy Rich - Dust to Dust(1993)
You might know these guys better as the less succesful members of 3rd Bass, but I've still got a soft spot for Pete Nice.
This record is a little strange, but pretty damn funky in some parts. I will still always love the Serch-Nice connection better than their solo shit, but the reunion talks are taking place so I might not have to wait too long.
Pete Nice wants to smoke you like a joint.
