qlazzarusHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

“Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus

The story goes that sometime during the mid-‘80s, late, great director Jonathan Demme was riding in a taxi in New York City.  During the ride, the cabbie played her demo tape for the him, and the director was apparently so taken with the music that he ended up using her work in several of his films, most notably (and perhaps a little notoriously) in 1991’s Silence of the Lambs.  Yeah.  You know the scene I’m talking about.  That one with Buffalo Bill.

The Joup Friday Album – The Body: No One Deserves Happiness

5-the-bodyIn getting the last minute hand-off to fill-in for Sonny, I decided to do something a bit different. Normally, I use most of my social media/internet time for spreading my Master’s word. Today though, I thought to myself, “Philp, why not go ahead and punch out for the night, take human form and find a nice woman, some mead, and roll into the weekend with an album that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

No pun intended.

Drinking, Fighting, F*&king, and Crying

The Cure DisintegrationAnd, as with all good things, we come to an end. My end with this particular column, at least. I’m hoping the future for Drinking, Fighting, F*&king, and Crying will unfold in an irregular but enthusiastic embracing by my fellow Jouptonians, and every now and again (or as often as anyone wants) a column pops up under this banner, no order to the choice of the four subjects necessary. As with everything on this site, write what moves you at the moment; if we see twelve drinking columns in a row, so be it! Nine crying posts? Good! For now though, let’s go into the final Cry.

Loveage: Songs to Make Love To Your Old Lady By purports, in a somewhat tongue-in-cheek way, to be a sonic aphrodisiac. The entire tableaux around which this Dan the Automator-conceived and produced, trip-hop masterpiece is built is so thorough, so painstakingly thought out, that when I saw them live in early 2002, Nakamura (The Automator’s real name) and Mike Patton wore smoking jackets and Jennifer Charles wore a slip.

“Kimmi in a Rice Field” by Mr Twin Sister

I wish I was one of those people that remembered their dreams.  My wife is one.  My oldest son appears to be too.  But I’m just not.  I’ll have a vague recollection of thoughts upon waking in the morning, flashes of things that feel more like impressions rather than memories, but then they fade away, vanished from my head often before my feet even hit the floor.  And to be honest, it makes me feel a little left out.
