Taking pictures of birds while listening to a Jonathan Franzen essay about birds. I’m the worst.

If you were a pill, I’d take a handful at my will,
And I’d knock you back with something sweet and strong

I’m pretty well over the Weezer covers album but the video they released for “Take on Me” is great if you’re nostalgic for 80s interior design.

🎤 Come on aboard/I promise you we won’t hurt the horse/we’ll treat him well/we’ll feed him well.

In this boom-era of teevee, is anyone making out better than Richard Kind?

A couple of weeks ago, two of y’all were discussing a-Ha (Morten Harket in particular), and how you were only familiar with their one hit.

I was a little bit “c’mon, there was a second US-charting singleº on that first album”‚ and a little bit “I mean, they had a Bond-movie title songˇ that was, if not great, at least as good as ‘A View To A Kill.’”

I was also a little bit “maybe I’m over-reacting because I’m an a-Ha completionist. At least I think I am. Do I have all their albums?”

I checked the discography… and they did the Crowded House thing! A big Farewell To The World tour in 2010 (which I knew about), then a new album five years later (which I did not).

I’ve listened to the latest album a few times this week. It’s pleasantly forgettable, just like the last one, although this song is sticking with me:

I posted that XL II scan then bounced over to wikipedia to make sure I was right about Blue Sky Mining being released in 1990… and it was… on today’s date, Feb 9. Happy 29th birthday, BSM.
