Snakes on a CD [Open Thread]

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at April 4, 2006 3:39 PM

I'm starting to develop a backlog of new music to review... maybe I'll do a double-feature next week.

Mogwai: Mr Beast: A decent Mogwai album that is overshadowed by one awesome track: "Glasgow Mega-Snake". If you like that track, you will also like... well, Pelican's album from last year (The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw). But the rest of Mr Beast doesn't quite measure up to this standard of huge crushing post-rock. There are a few other above-average songs: notably "Folk Death 95", and the last track, "We're No Here". The rest of the record is standard Mogwai fare, but nothing spectacular. I'll still try to see them at Coachella, though.

What happens when the band members get the munchies after midnight?

They turn into New Kids on the Block. Don't let it happen.

Good evening Mr. Tyler. Going... down?

(Maybe that's the point of the video... can't watch until I get home from work)

That was... totally awful. I'm impressed!

Seriously, I bet the movie will be better than that.

Could the movie possibly be worse than that? I want those 6.5 minutes of my life back!

It did occur to me, though, that the guy who convinced that person to testify should have been played by Keanu Reeves.

Are you kidding? That was the best 6.5 minutes of my life! Those kids should go pro.
