    What was your craziest onstage moment?

    Last month I summarized Yo La Tengo's answer to my freewheeling question. Now thanks to the great Boston music blog, Bradley's Almanac, you can hear it for yourself at about 2 minutes in to "freewheeling banter 11" not to mention the entire early show from November 15th. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

    Daft podcasting

    I have to get the podcast engine going again soon. It's been a nine-month gap which is inexcusable and the last one included my favorites from the beginning of the year. Here we are in the final stride of 2007 and I suppose my next podcast should round out the year with my other favorites.

    All I know is that Daft Punk's Alive 2007 will top the list. Have you heard this thing? I stopped paying attention to Daft Punk five years ago, but wow, this live album from a June show in Paris is stellar. Check the video clip. What are your favorites from the year?

    A mix of Snow (and rain)

    For those in New England, we have snow in our near future. The coastline will probably be a messy mix of snow and rain. But here in central Mass we could be getting anywhere between 3-6 inches, maybe more if the storm dips south a bit.

    This won't be the first snowfall of the season, but it's close enough that it's time to pull out Coil's "The Snow." I've talked about this in the past and posted the track here before. So this time, let's go with a couple remixes both courtesy of Meat Beat Manifesto.
