these girls

Don't know if I like this, or the album version better. Best Ryan Adams song either way.

i was made for loving you

Despite the fade out, this KISS cover rates.
When you grow up with a band like KISS, you never really can leave them behind. You get older, more sophisticated, your musical taste evolves, you gain an acute disdain for throw away pop music, and '80's hair bands can suck-it! But you still have that place deep inside of you where, underneath the Van Halen and Duran Duran, lies the real reason you started listening to music, the very beginning, the greatest band in the land: KISS.
When we were kids they told us KISS was an acronym for Knights In Satan's Service. Of course, it's not true, but I still write their name in all caps. Why? Because they earned it. They introduced millions of kids to rock n' roll. Even though they were total shit, they were THE shit.

ski boys

SKI BOYS from Benny Zenga on Vimeo.

You've likely already seen this, but I'm sure you don't mind. This is simply one of my favorite videos on the interwebs and I feel compelled to revisit it every so often. It makes me think of early R.E.M., the Cali culture that was everywhere in the '80's and the current fashion trend that has brought Gant, Woolrich, and Sperry back into the fold.
