Far from Random if Close to Friday Music Blogging

Bloglodyte that I am, I play on the internets yet buy CDs and make mixed cassette tapes. I like the physical clicking of the buttons. Here's the latest, featuring a mini-Robert Quine fest (I still don't believe he's dead, probably because all his playing lives on) and four likeably unlikely covers.

Along with your post titles (which have occasionally inspired me to listen to and remember why I love The Replacements) this suggests that we have very similar CD collections.

I left tapes behind for burned CDs and am now delving into ipod playlists, but I do miss the clicking of buttons and the hiss of dead tape between songs.

Similar music and dog collections--all "greyt" minds think alike.

I still have tons of tapes, actually, and am saddened to know I can never buy a new car, since they don't have cassette players in them anymore. Of late I've been delving way back into the collection and have been listening to college radio shows I did in 1982-83, when a younger, dumber me, still with wisps of my Jersey accent, preferred New Gold Dream to Imperial Bedroom.

Don't tell anyone.
