    055: Fiona Apple, Together At Home, Corona Bug Chasers

    055: Fiona Apple, Together At Home, Corona Bug Chasers

    AQP55 covers quite a bit of ground in short order, from thoughts on the 'One World: Together at Home' broadcast, to your options in Ticketmaster’s predatory ticket refund policy change. Then there's the coronavirus bug-chasers mass-protesting against that awesome band Bill Gates & the Deep State and their plans to microchip us and kill us with 5G towers or something.

    Also covered: the new Fiona Apple record, which couldn’t be more perfectly timed - arriving when we’re all stuck in our homes, hair grown out and unkempt, restlessly walking in circles, wearing stained pajamas while our pets freak out wondering what the hell is happening. It’s a perfect mood-setter for ‘Fetch the Bolt Cutters,’ a magnificent album and the running leader for album of the year.

    054: Love Lockdown: Armageddon Fetish

    054: Love Lockdown: Armageddon Fetish

    Still alive! AQP54 digs into new music from Run The Jewels, Nine Inch Nails, Phish and Pearl Jam, with a send-off to Bill Withers and the sad discovery that Joe Exotic doesn't write or sing his own songs. Also, a review of the new Louis CK special. But first, an exploration of armageddon fetishization.

    People have been obsessed by the idea of civilization ending for a very, very long time - long before Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck landed on a stupid asteroid. From the end date of the Mayan calendar to the Epic of Gilgamesh, from the Genesis flood to the Book of Revelation, all the way up through silly nonsense like The Day After Tomorrow and The Walking Dead, the end of life as we know it has always been a fixture in cultures around the world. Except that's not what it really looks like at all.

    053: Pearl Jam Fan Life Pt. 2 (2003-2020)

    053: Pearl Jam Fan Life Pt. 2 (2003-2020)

    This is one Pearl Jam fan’s blueprint to chasing the dragon of musical passion. Falling in love. Catching tambourines. Traveling thousands of miles for shows, many times over, for 2-3 hours of heart-soaring release, catharsis and rejuvenation. Album releases. Show adventures. Riding the rail at Pj20, Temple of The Dog, countless festivals and beyond.

    The second half of a two-episode run on the journey of a lifelong Pearl Jam fan, from the ‘90s teenage obsessions through today’s seasoned adoration. This is part two of the saga, a continuation from part one on episode 47. These are the stories, songs, observations and other weird wanderings about a band whose music has soundtracked every shifting frequency of my own life.

    This picks up where part one left off, in late 2003 - the halfway point (so far) on nearly three decades of adventures with Pearl Jam.

    051: Thom Yorke in the Forest, RATM Reunion

    051: Thom Yorke in the Forest, RATM Reunion

    On a chilly Devil's Night in Los Angeles, the pine-framed magic of the Greek Theater was a perfect setting for a tour-closing show from Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke. A trip to Pulp Fiction’s Big Kahuna Burger pop-up followed, along with rants/raves on the Rage Against The Machine reunion announcement.

Continuously pushing out golden nuggets

The perfect mix of personal experience, illuminating musical knowledge, and sense of humor, with a smidge of lovable narcissism. (wink)
