So much to catch up on!

Did you know Portishead is putting out its first album in 10 years? We thought that was a long break. But the B-52s are putting out their first new album in…16 years! It’s called FUNPLEX. Perhaps we are showing our own age, but we always liked anything that ended in -plex. We also always liked BOUNCING OFF THE SATELLITES, but no one else did. What’s that on your head? A wig!

Anyway…The Beat is going to be very distracted over the next couple of weeks by travel, tax returns, the ongoing clean-up at Stately Beat Manor and other personal matters. We’re doing a big vast catch-up day at the Beat, trying to close some of those tabs, as they say. It will be random and ugly and no one will be able to make sense of it. But we’ll all be stronger and wiser when we come out of it.

Speaking of the clean-up, this weekend we did something we never did before…we just threw out a big bag of comics. Threw them out. Put them in a Duane Reade bag and left them in the hall. DCs, Marvels, Image, you name it.

No one took them.

  1. Bouncing off the Satellites was a great album. As a note, I’ve been pulling out all my old Cramps RECORDS and having a read good time with those. So anyway, here’s a tax time riddle for you to take your mind off of things. Why do tungs have so much trouble getting their taxes done?

  2. It’s my convicted belief that Bouncing‘s last cut, “She Brakes for Rainbows”, is one of the most beautiful songs ever written- especially when my then-6-year-old daughter sang along with it in the car.

    YOU SINNER!

    I’ve never thrown away or destroyed a comic (except for a copy of Marville; tore up that crap). I have, however, given them away or sold them.

  4. God, the throw out–i need to do another one of those. My first grab some tape, make a brick of spandex books, toss in street was about 4 years ago. What a pleasure. Thanks for the reminder.
