Cook. Stay groomed at all times. Be interesting. Clean. Have babies. Don’t complain. Put everyone before you. Don’t complain. Smile. Listen to your husband. Do everything for him. Don’t complain. Make him comfortable. Smile some more. Have more babies.

Note: Katie will answer the call of Chester’s tag next week after she successfully prepares for the coming educational apocalypse set to descend upon the townships of her residence in nary a day or two. In the meantime, Black Philip is always happy to fill in and attempt to corrupt the minds of our readers.

Black Philip, take it away…

Thank you Shawn. You know, I never expected this to happen to me, but rather inadvertently I have become known for something of a ‘catch phrase’.

The Joup Friday Album: Rollins Band – The End of Silence

Rollins_Band_-_The_End_of_SilenceI’m not sure how or why I ended up with Rollins Band, The End of Silence as my pick for this week’s edition of the Joup Friday Album. I was set to do the album Death Reflects Us by Helsinki band BeastMilk, a kind of modern embodiment of what a Misfits-meets-the-Smiths scenario might sound like. It’s a fantastic record my friend Joe Kohler only recently turned me onto and I’ve listened to it enough to drive a normal man (or woman) insane. But youtube didn’t have that. Then I was thinking about Anthrax, because I broke out my vinyl (!!!) copy of State of Euphoria last Saturday night and subsequently purchased Among the Living on iTunes (@$5.99 for the non-remastered deluxe folks it’s quite a steal!) – a replacement for the cassette that time destroyed – the following day. Then, on the way to writing about Anthrax I sat down and killed a few beers while watching Better Than Something, the Jay Reatard documentary. It affected me a considerable amount, but then The End of Silence popped into my head and I knew I was going with it. Because The End of Silence is that kind of album for me – when it comes up, it takes over.

The Joup Friday Album: New Order – Brotherhood

new-orderAfter my last review of Primal Scream’s Chaosmosis with its handful of songs that reminded me of New Order, it’s only fitting that I take this opportunity to discuss New Order’s place in the Holy Trinity. You may recall I referred to the Holy Trinity in my review of the Cure’s The Head on the Door. These three albums, given as a gift when I was thirteen years old, went on to define my musical taste for the rest of my life.
