I watched Django Unchained a couple of days ago... Pretty good movie, I even laughed once, but I nearly lost it when i heard this song that I listened to a lot as a kid but had completely forgotten for twenty years.

Jim Croce - I Got a Name

Also contains the rest of the album, and a lot of the songs seem really familiar. I'm sure i've heard them before, but i'm also sure my parents don't have the record and they certainly weren't played on the radio over here.. Wikipedia says he died in a plane-crash the same day the "I Got a Name" single was released.

I've said it before but this dudes videos and guitar lessons are awesome. Basically the whole songs he posts are guitar covers with the original guitar track muted and him playing it, and I've yet to find a single video where I didn't prefer his playing to the original. Maybe it's because the guitar is mixed a little louder than the originals..Some original songs too.


Some of his covers are a bit... unconventional. But still awesome.

This makes me smile.

And now for something weird.



Which I found because I rather like this song by the same artist.



Which is a centerpiece of a Japanese film. This song is also the centerpiece of a Japanese film.



Though I don't know if the impact is quite as big if you don't know the film itself.

After similarly disappointing albums from the Silversun Pickups and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, I've been rocking out to a lot of JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound after discovering them on Undercover. Good car spotting, too.

I'd date a girl who owns a 928. The music ain't bad either, will listen to more. Goddammit I'm out of wine..

Also this; she's mezmerizing. And I was within 15m from her and the band sitting outside their tour bus a couple of weeks ago but just sat there for a moment and then left; this will bug me for a long time. I've never asked for an autograph, but it would have been cool to chat for a moment about something other than their music. At least if i was a musician i would rather talk about cars or whatnot rather than my music.

The tour bus is visible in this video


Here's something not-Finnish that I listened to alot as a kid. And a good quality vinly rip of the whole album.
