Here’s a deal I need to take advantage of. In the Amazon MP3 store, they have the Warren Zevon tribute album Enjoy Every Sandwich on sale for $1.99. I don’t know how long this will last, so if you are interested one should buy sooner rather than later. The late great Warren Zevon is one of those anomolous artists whose last albums of his life were amongst his strongest. To this day, I can’t hear “For My Next Trick I’ll Need a Volunteer” without getting tears in my eyes.
Warren, you crazy bastard, I miss you. How are we to get along without your insanely catchy tragic songs?
Update: That sale didn’t last long. It was so short that I didn’t even get in on it. I was on a beach store’s wifi at the time I posted this and it didn’t seem prudent to buy it right then but I didn’t realize that the sale would be off even a few hours later. Woops! I might still buy this at $6.99.
Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for September 9, 2006.
Today is a clip show and a live bootleg show. I play bits of other podcasts that have struck my fancy later and several songs that are freely available out there on the internet. I start with a song from the late great Warren Zevon; I play two bits from RU Sirius, one of which prompts me to discuss geographic elitism; I play a silly clip from the “official Ebert and Roeper podcast”; I play a bit from Jonathan Coulton on the PopSci podcast; I play a live bootleg from the Butthole Surfers; I play a little moment from the dada madness of Tiki Bar TV; I show what kind of crap I did for WREK in Atlanta; I play a snippet from Jeff Mallett at the Web 2.0 conference via IT Conversations; I talk about the Flaming Lips documentary and play a live song from them; it’s over and nothing can change that.
