By popular demand (by which I mean one person requested it amd I am noting if not impressionable) here is a random tenish just like we did last summer, because why not and besides it comes with Shakira’s ass which is reason enough for me.

I Need You – The Muffs (who have a new CD coming out I hear. Yay.)
Hard Times – Emmylou Harris
Sleeping Giant – Mastodon
Let’s Go Crazy – Prince
Impossible – Band Of Skulls
Burning Too – Fugazi
Last Ride Together – I Love You But I Have Chosen Darkness
Mystery Achievement – The Pretenders
Kinder Blumen – Real Estate
Wonderland – Mocean Worker
and
One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21 – The Flaming Lips

As for that last song, it comes from a favorite of mine, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, which is being turned into a musical at the La Jolla Playhouse, opening next month. Needless to say, the refined and bootytastic Mrs Tbogg and I will be attending, going as we have with artistic director Des McAnuff, back to the old days when we were regular season ticket holders and seeing Romeo and Juliet (with Amanda Plummer as Juliet), Big River (with young John Goodman) and a text-bending, visually-seared-into-my-brain-forever Ajax, directed by Peter Sellars.

Which reminds me …. if you haven’t seen Ralph Fiennes Coriolanus yet, you’ve missed out on one of the finest films of the past several years:

Shakespeare and ‘splosions!

Also, too, looking forward to this (warning…sound).

Culture, y’all. Get some.
