Sounds like you might need a little dose of KARP to bring you back to your "1" mark.

Karp does have a way of recentering one's mind, through force of volume alone.

Did you hear Bill Callahan's "Apocalypse"? Not all the songwriting is up to snuff, but the warm, earthy sound of the thing was refreshing, even on mp3.

I think I've brought this up on the blog before but I have a real difficulty listening to Callahan, despite the fact that by all accounts he should be right up my alley. I had a personal interaction with him years ago that put a bitter taste in my mouth.

Well, allow me to remove my foot from my mouth and pledge to be a closer reader of pgwp in the future...

Is there a way to search on your blog? I feel like there used to be.

I don't remember what post it was... it was in the comments to a post that wasn't about Smog - I think someone was recommending Smog to me (it's an annual occurance!).

Anyway, the short version of the story is we had booked Smog to play the record store I worked at back in 1998 or 1999 and he was a smug dick to everyone who worked there and everyone who came to see him play (you know, the fans). In the grand scheme of things he didn't do anything unforgivable, but, you know, there are a zillion albums I could spend my money and time on, and I just don't feel I'm missing THAT MUCH by skipping over someone who was an asshole to me.

Ha, that was me recommending Smog.

For what it's worth, the new Callahan album is pretty weak, so even if you suddenly changed your mind about him, that's not where I'd send you.
