    The year 1997 was a big one for me both personally and socially. I was deeply involved in music, writing, and the arts, and my personal life was winding up in a crescendo of self-discovery and debauchery. That was twenty years ago and I am writing a little bit about each album on their release dates.

Today, we look at the live album by the inimitable Ani DiFranco, Living In Clip

    The year 1997 was a big one for me both personally and socially. My band Morpheus was wrought from nightmares, a number of very influential albums were released, and my personal life was winding up in a crescendo of self-discovery and debauchery. That was twenty years ago, now. The scale of this chunk of time which has passed in relation to my own life is something significant to me, so I would like to write a little bit about each album on their release dates.

Our first highlight is the late and revered David Bowie’s Earthling

Eargasms For Your Genitals EP Review

Eargasms   Marianne Toilet And The Runs are an extravagant sex-positive comedic rock act from Massachusetts. This is a must see live band, which is something that doesn’t always translate well to record. In fact, more often than not, the difference is disappointingly staggering. Thankfully, this is nto the case here. Eargasms For Your Genitals is a really enoyable release that effetively captures the character, hilarity, and fun of their live performance.

Eargasms opens with a rousing southwestern-style religious sermon and the origin story of Marianne Toilet and the bowel-moving manifestation which brought this wonder upon our world. Having seen them live a few times, I expected the theme to follow (sadly absent from this ep), but FiFi was a great transition. What is a fifi? A fifi is a homemade pocket pussy made with a cup, a couple sponges, and a latex glove. It’s also a great upbeat love song you just can’t stay still during. Next is Frat Guy In The Closet. We all know a few and can rejoice in his hidden happiness. Gentleman And A Scholar is the most honest ballad I have ever heard. The tragedy of Lawnmowing will bring a tear to your eye. The Blumpy? The Blumpy is a wealth of ideas buried in an endearing story of a darling lady. In this mix, we have an ep that takes us on an emotional and very horny journey from the inception of Marianne Toilet and beyond.

Marianne Toilet And The Runs write very effective rock songs about hilarious takes on the debaucherous corners of our society. Pimp d’Crip’s guitar work and both Marianne and Cami’s vocals really stand out for me with The Red Nightmare’s solid drumming keeping it moving. The humor is infectious, the songwriting is very solid, and the production is clean and strong. The idea is wonderful and the execution is brilliant.

5/5 – an absolute must have album

’94 X-Men Trading Cards Wanted

1994 Fleer Ultra X-Men trading cards…
I collected these as a teenager, put what I had away a couple years later, and recently dug it up. I never completed the set, but I have too many to justify now shelling out for a full set. So, I’m looking for singles to fill the holes. Hit the jump for the list!
