FMJRA 2.0: Dr. Destructo

— compiled by Wombat-socho This week’s SOTD is from the soundtrack to the James Caan movie Thief, one of the movies directed by Michael Mann that eventually earned him a shot at making Miami Vice. It’s a dark movie about an ex-con jewel thief trying to go straight who gets dragged back into crime by […]

FMJRA 2.0: Too Much Too Young

— compiled by Wombat-socho No link to the SOTD, which is from Jason & The Scorchers album Wildfires & Misfires, an eclectic collection of outtakes, live tracks, and odd songs that never made it onto one of their regular albums. I’m kinda hoping Britney Spears covers it someday; it’s like the song was written with […]

FMJRA 2.0: Home Is Nevada

— compiled by Wombat-socho I had a good weekend at Confinement; didn’t sleep as much as I should have, but I managed to control my nibbling and my jeans feel a tad looser, so I have that going for me. Also talked to a bunch of folks about all kinds of stuff, and got some […]

FMJRA 2.0: Home At Last

— compiled by Wombat-socho I had hoped to get this done yesterday evening, but the wild Saturday night in Elko turned into an early bedtime since I was exhausted from the drive from Provo, and I felt even worse last night after stopping in the office in Reno to retrieve some gear, so I had […]

FMJRA 2.0: On Your Feet Or On Your Knees

— compiled by Wombat-socho Most live albums are a waste of time and money, but one of the awesome exceptions is the first live album by Blue Öyster Cult, which I bought before seeing them in concert with four other bands at the now-demolished Capital Center because the cover art was just that cool. I […]

FMJRA 2.0: Farewell To A Master

— compiled by Wombat-socho As most of you probably know by now, Gerard Vanderleun has left this vale of tears for a better place. For those of you who don’t, I suggest a long stroll through the pages of American Digest, his blog. It will be well worth your time. Like many others, I didn’t […]

FMJRA 2.0: Dinosaur Tales

— compiled by Wombat-socho Title track is from Klaus Schulze’s La Vie Electronique Vol.4, a nice three-disc set of old-school electronic music that could pass for classical if most classical stations weren’t stuck in the 19th century. Should not be confused with this Ray Bradbury collection, which might have inspired Schulze, who was a big […]
