EGC Clambake for December 21, 2005

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for December 21, 2005.

I talk about Christmas and play a Christmas song by Jill Sobule; I talk about the bogus “War on Christmas” and call Bill O’Reilly some well-deserved obscene names; I play an appropriate song by Fugazi; a few promos including one from the audioplay I was a voice in; monkeyshines; I play a song from the upcoming Michelle Malone CD and screw up my exit.

  1. Bit Torrent link back in good form. Wow, haven’t heard Fugazi in a while. Love everything you’ve played by Michelle Malone, sure hope she’s gigging in Atlanta when I’m there in Jan.

    So now your pimpin frapr,hmm. Can smiling nerdily and saying, “TGIF” be far off?

  2. I used to have a very dull job as a web designer for an auto loan company but at least I could listen to music and podcasts for four or six hours a day. Unfortunately, the company made more money in the last quarter than they ever had before so they closed the San Diego office.

    The only reason I mention any of this is that I no longer have the convenience of listening to music and podcasts than I used to. That means I’ve got a backlog of podcasts to catch up and here it is, February 19th and I’m just now listening to this episode of the EGC. Don’t you just love the flexibility of podcasts?

    Couple things…

    For the last decade or more I’ve been ranting how punk is dead, dead, DEAD! What used to be a vibrant subculture is now a corpse rigid in rigor mortis. You can go to one coast to the other or one continent to the next and you’ll find your stereotypical punk in their McPunk uniforms spouting their McPunk beliefs listening to their McPunk music.

    But on listening to this episode of EGC it occured to me that ther are a few souls out their that are true to the punk ideal. Fugazi is one of them. Ian, for example, could have easily did what so many other punks did and did a rehash of Minor Threat. But he didn’t. Instead, each band he was in after Minor threat was different than the last. From Minor Threat to egghunt to Embrace to Fugazi: all different.

    Okay, moving on…

    I love the Christmas Carol in just about any version. Whether it’s the George C. Scott version or the Mister Magoo version I eat it up with a spoon. It’s A Wonderful Life? Not so much. Amazingly enough, one Christmas “classic” is, what’s it called, A Christmas Story? The one with the kid with the BB Gun? Never seen it. Just seen snippets here and there.

    Anyway, I was determined to see it in it’s entirety this year but that didn’t happen. Maybe next Christmas.
