The Cure “A Forest” from 1979

Holy mackerel this is great.

Pre-hair-and-makeup Robert Smith is a damn handsome man and the band just *kills* this. I have to agree with the comments there at the bass line is the standout winner.

And, in a broader sense, I think people underrate The Cure as a band name. It’s gotta be top 50 All Time. And then that they had so many great songs? Damn.

Sans Forgetica

I do enjoy a fun font.

Q2 and Q3 catchup playlist

Here’s another occasional “bucket of songs that caught Mike’s fancy” playlist. This was a fun 6 months of listening. Putting it together I got to relive my little trip from ambient music and fuzzed out drone to hip hop and 20th century country music.

There can be some jarring transitions from song to song but I am way into all of the songs on this list. Give it a listen, I hope you enjoy it.

Tenacious D on Hot Ones

I’ve been keeping up with them, more or less, and this is the best of the recent bunch. They’re very funny. I especially liked the way The Bomb killed them. Been there, it’s not great.

Matt Damon on the Ringer Podcast

I’m in the bag for Matt Damon and this is a fun interview. It was set up to talk about Rounders (a movie I enjoy very much) but he also spends time talking about his contemporaries and how they came up in the 90’s

Safe As Milk Podcast 93 – Adam Broke His Edge

Good times and a couple of chuckles while we talk about some shows and podcasts we’ve been enjoying and then Mike closes us out with a Public Service Announcement.

Safe As Milk Podcast 92 – Mike Played a Game

No, seriously, Adam put a game into the outline and Mike played it all the way through. This has only happened twice in the storied history of our humble podcast.

Safe As Milk Podcast 91 – What Is Slowcore

A music packed episode to wrap up the summer.

Followup and Footnotes

Daniel Sturridge with a point-saving goal.

I also enjoy the music from Titanic as an overlay.
