Well, SXSW came and went, and all of were still of (relatively) sound mind and body, so we decided to congregate in Mark’s garage and do the show. This week we were joined by our good friend Marcus Rice and we graciously allowed him to choose this week’s album, Heaven or Las Vegas, The Cocteau Twins 1990 effort. A fine time was had by all and much spirited discussion ensued.

We briefly turned our attention to Higher by Creed in which Scott Stapp takes a messianic flight above the crowd. I felt like pickin a butt rock video as a way to ease everyone into my album pick next week.

For A Current Affair, Ryan fucked everything up. I personally think the rules are pretty easy for this segment, just pick a song released within the last 12 months. But he chose the song D.A.N.C.E. by the French duo Justice (the t is spelled using a crucifix, but I don’t have those fancy font capabilities), a song that was released in 200fucking7! All he had to do was double-check using the internet, a thing I would hope he is familiar with by now. sigh.

OK! So, next week I chose 2005’s NIckleback offering All the Right Reasons. Curious what everyone might have to say. I guess we’ll see next week.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
