I SHOULD HAVE RUN
"In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad, known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories."
law and order special victims unit used to be on t.v. every night at 7 and we would watch it regardless of how many times we'd seen a particular episode.
come on, ice-t playing a cop? that's good shit!
anyway, i've watched a lot of law and order, but just s.v.u.
i only like the real heinous stuff, i guess.
so, about this album...
if you can make it past the first song, which is truly obnoxious, you get to the real shit...
(i know i've posted this video before, but it's just so GOOD.)
the album kind of takes off from some of the weird home recorded shit he was doing on fleetwood mac's tusk and goes in more of a pure pop direction. all the songs have a strange detached vibe and they sound tiny and almost condensed. i know lindsey buckingham was a fan of guitarist les paul and his technique of changing the recording speed to make the guitars sound super fast and high pitched, which you can hear on this album as well as on most later fleetwood mac albums.
i always have to turn the cover around when i listen to the record, because the picture is so fucking creepy.
anyway, this record is always in bargain bins, so you really have no excuse for not jamming it.
while we're at it, remember this song?
weird video. what a creep!
this shit has obviously been grinding me pretty hard these days.
here are some clips from the impossible to find tusk movie
below room-temperature beans.
