Catchy Tuesday features Bastard-sanctioned outfit The Chats, with a classic band television interview.
I’ve recently begun making a cautious return to seeing live music again, and I’ve come to realize something I guess I never cared enough to think about before: the encore is ridiculous. At this point, maybe we should just collectively admit that and do away with it. I’m not saying doing an encore was never a cool idea. I like to imagine a simpler time when it was an actual, authentic gesture only granted to crowds who cheered hard enough. Just end the show and then fuck off. The people who leave prior to the encore will find a new excuse to leave early. There’s always an excuse.
You bastards who perform live every week: are you still doing encores? Is it kabuki theater?
One of the measures of a great song is relatability. This one’s got it in spades.
An uplifting tune to get you over the midweek hump.
Thanks to Reinfield for exposing me to this Paddy Roberts holiday chestnut a few years ago.
Nearly 60 years on, still as true today as the day it was written.
You’re not going to make Crocs cool. I somehow got subscribed to a ridiculously overpriced MAN’S MAN clothing and apparel site (Huckberry – the name says it all) not too long ago. Their copywriters breathlessly oversell everything, but this one really made me chuckle.
Crocs are the shoes that can bring everyone together—from the creative directors we follow for style tips, to our parents, to our buddy who’s really into bowhunting. Over the past couple years, their unreasonably comfy slip-ons have floated into our everyday footwear rotations and aren’t leaving anytime soon. Which is why we’ve been looking forward to their new batch of near-weightless clogs outfitted for the colder months with all-terrain soles, cozy sherpa linings, and Realtree and Mossy Oak camo.
It’s a classic!
As someone who lived in NYC for over a decade, I can relate.
That’s sarcasm, boys. Still, damn good print on the YouTubes.
Apologies if this is (appropriately) filtered out by your IT overlords. This is going on my Smoko mix.
