Merry Christmas To Me, From Paul Banks

Over the last 10 days I have LITERALLY watched over 20 hours of Interpol performances on YouTube. Yeah, that's a little obsessive. But I'm like that about music and you already knew that. I have a lot to say about Interpol, too much to blog about (yes, I still stick to my rule of never spending more than 10 minutes on a post).

So when I woke up this morning and Bdog read me a press release about all the west coast dates they added to their tour, it felt like 5 big Christmas presents. I've been lamenting about their fall tour...all East coast and Europe. I felt seriously shafted. So now I am rejoicing and trying to decide who we will call to cash in some favors.

Enjoy a couple of my top 20 Interpol performances...you're gonna have to cover your ears once on Specialist though.

God bless all of Paul's moles and his little white Adidas. Amen.

And here's a link to a GREAT performance of Rest My Chemistry. At the beginning, it looks like it's going to be crappy video, but it's not.


Keep Your Feet On The Ground And Keep Reaching For The Stars

Animal will be on America's Weekly Top 40 starting this Saturday or possible next. You know, the show that Casey Kasem used to host, but now it's Ryan Seacrest. Yeah, that show we all listened to growing up. The one I listened to on Saturday mornings waiting to hear a Michael Jackson song so I could record it onto tape. That one.


Damian's iPod Exchange

I love this idea. So I'm calling on all my rock 'n roll friends to participate:



This Guy

We love Danny. Danny is my favorite and everyone knows it. I've loved Danny since the first time he made me laugh uncontrollably and inappropriately in our Institute class at UVSC in 1993. He is funnier than anyone you know. His sense of humor is sharp & dry, witty, smart, and totally irreverent. People are very much attracted to him. Whatever you're doing, it is WAY better and WAY more fun if Danny's there. He has been a very loyal friend to us. He is strong, brave, thoughtful, sensitive to peoples' needs, he loves rock 'n roll, and he gives great gifts. We love Danny.
