How do you spell love? I spell it H.E.L.L. but that’s a good thing. And hot too! On my show tonight it was all about love. Just take a look below. Have you ever been in love? Romantic love where it’s all hot and heavy and you can’t keep your hands and genitals off one another? Where they’re on your mind 24/7 and your just know this feeling is going to last forever? You know what I’m talking about, right? That feeling where there’s just no one else on this big blue-green planet that can even understand how amazing your love is? Your love is larger than all the loves put together. And you both love the loving love that you love to loving give?

And then there’s the practical love. The love that is supposed to continue to grow once the romantic love that was never ever going to fade because they love me more than anything ever, and they are constantly turned on by me, excited to hear about every little mundane moment of my mundane day as if I just survived 30 days in the Outback (not restaurant, but then again that too sounds like torture) and come back to tell the tale. The love that says “put the toilet seat down”, but what they really mean is “I love you from the bottom of my heart, but if you leave that toilet seat up one more time, then you are not ever getting any more of this (at which point they’re just pointing to their genitals)”.

How many break-ups have your survived just to tell yourself that the next relationship is going to be the ONE?!?!? Have you begun to realize that it really is about the merging of two people who are totally turned on by the other for a finite amount of time, but given the chance may be able to evolve this deep friendship (please be best friends with this person, really) into a partnership that can survive the day-to-day “please put the dishes in the dishwasher” existence that requires you to set aside your ego.

And that’s it really, we need to leave our ego at the door. And we need to be a HUGE cheerleader for our partner. That’s what we want from them even if we don’t say it out loud.

So love is HELL. It’s hot, and it’s cumbersome at times, and it’s loud, and it’s unruly, but out the other side can be something truly wonderful. Climb out of your fairytale and into the reality what love can really be. Oh, and listen to my show while having hot sex. Why not? Couldn’t hurt.

Enjoy.

Have you heard the news, it’s all over town. If you ain’t heard it boy, you better sit down. Er, um…sorry about that. I shouldn’t use 70s-era Bob Segar lyrics to draw your attention, even though it sure got the boys to take note of Betty Lou; amIright?!?!?!?! Of course I am.

This year I have recommitted to featuring my ever deepening obsession with live music. The second hour features live tracks from Dylan. Garcia, Bob Marley and more. Also, some brand spankin’ new Ty Segall. I counted and I see that I now own 20 Ty Segall LPs and 8 45s. Do I get a medal for something like that?

If you’ve never heard of Wylde Ratttz before, then join the club. I just “discovered” this super group recently and I really have to wonder what rock my head was under when these guys appeared 20 years ago. In short, the band was a side project featuring Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) Mike Watt (Minutemen), Ron Asheton (Stooges), Don Flemming (Velvet Monkeys), and Sabir Mateen. They mostly covered Stooges songs, Pretty Things, and couple of originals. The music was also used for the movie Velvet Goldmine, with Ewan McGregor taking on the lead vocals. There was some hype about the fact that on the original soundtrack Mark Arm’s vocals were replaced with McGregor’s to the dismay of the band. You can read about that here. Again, where the hell was I in 1998 when all of this was happening? Oh right, I remember. Ugh, that’s for another post, on another blog, in another universe, in another dimension.

Enjoy.
