For some reason, watching the Lifetime holiday movie, “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” became a holiday tradition in our house, despite it being one of the most despised TV movies of all-time (check its IMDB rating). It is what it is, but it’s not as bad as people say. Aubrey Plaza nails it as Grumpy’s voice and any film that wastes airtime with its bumbling idiot villains hilariously arguing who was the best Van Halen frontman—Sammy Hagar or Gary Cherone—clearly doesn’t care what you think. Neither singer appears on the picture disc soundtrack that our house’s biggest Grumpy Cat aficionado is holding here, but it’s a moderately decent LP/merch tie-in anyway.

R. I. P. Marie Fredriksson. Say what you want about simple pop songs and power ballads, but few could knock them out with such weight and assurance as Roxette in their prime. This one in particular, “It Must Have Been Love,” from the Pretty Woman soundtrack, is a keeper. It is a rock solid piece of craftsmanship, from the production to the lyrics to the song construction, but the glue holding it all together is Fredriksson’s voice—she sails right past ‘over the top,’ which is how a song like this works best. So long to an unheralded great. 


I went to Washington D.C. on business and had a free afternoon—so did I go to the Smithsonian? The Library of Congress? The presidential monuments? I did not—but I found some cool records! Also some neat, neat stuff that I’ll share in the coming days, but first, a sweet find—a minty fresh U.K. 12” remix of Jane’s Addiction’s classic “Been Caught Stealing” that came in a custom box with three prints based on the controversial covers of their first and second albums.

After a long weekend of Thanksgiving leftovers, everybody feels like these guys. This is a U.K. shaped picture disc of The Fat Boys’ duet with The Beach Boys, all bustin’ it over”Wipeout,” the old 1960s instrumental by The Surfaris.

Yesterday, I picked up Paul McCartney’s Black Friday single—a limited edition picture disk with two new songs, “Home Tonight" and “In A Hurry.” Pretty cool. Of course, when you’re Paul McCartney, “limited edition” means 12,000 were pressed. 


Thom Yorke – Suspiria

Great Moments in Stupid: Found this Squeeze album the other day, signed by Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford for an insulting five bucks. They wrote it was autographed on the price sticker…and then placed the sticker ON AN AUTOGRAPH. Not one to pass up a bargain, I nabbed it and the sticker came off just fine with some gentle pulling. 


My traditional Thanksgiving vinyl post: Too Much Joy’s “Thanksgiving In Reno”—a Hunter S. Thompson-lite tale of emptiness and salvation—or drunkenness. Have a great holiday😀

This past weekend’s sweet find: The rare first record released by Television, pre-major label. The song was so long, they had to cut it in half and put it on both sides! It’s cool to hear, though, because the weird, off-kilter magic of their guitar interplay and acrid vocals was already there even at this early stage.
