This Week’s Word of the Week

Oeuvre

Larry’s Media Picks

  • Lyle Lovett – Natural Forces – It’s nice to hear Lyle Lovett put out a complete new album, and one that makes such good use of his witty and well crafted song writing. I have to admit I’ve an irrational love of his music, but it’s been quite a while since I was so impressed with a new album of his. I was basically hooked when I hear the chorus of “Farmer Brown / Chicken Reel” it involves Lylye choking his chicken.
  • RX Bandits – Mandala – This one is really hard to describe so I’m not going to. Play it loud and hold on for the ride.

Eric’s Media Picks

  • The Above – If you like garage rock and the sounds of the British Invasion then The Above are for you!
  • Angus Khan – Sounding like Angus Young and Genghis Khan in a back alley bar fight, Angus Khan is a five-piece piece biker metal supergroup out of Hollywood, CA that features members of punk rock ‘n’ roll favorites B-Movie Rats, the Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs, ADZ and Jesters of Destiny. Combining the raw power of AC/DC and the Stooges, this band is just pure unadulterated rock n’ roll.

    Oeuvre (n.) -1) the small portion of the ovary that is removed during a biopsy. 2) the lab slide made from said material.

    Best I could do off the top of my head (I know, too easy, right.)
    I’ll be back to post more pertinent comments later. I only just listened to the podcast.

  2. theHoseman Says:

    Oh Yeah,
    Thanks for the kind words!

  3. javdoc Says:

    Good podcast, thanks guys.

    Couple comments:

    * Oeuvre is part of hors d’oeuvres, in addition to its’ independent usage, so we’ve all heard it there if nowhere else. 😉

    * On the multi-shout thing, I know it’s happened to me a couple times recently where I went to make a shout and it didn’t work [leading to several re-tries which suddenly all posted], or made one and it posted twice. Not sure if that’s an issue with the site, or an ISP/browser thing, but it’s not all stalkerish behavior [though there is definitely some of that going on out there as well….]

    * Props again to Hoseman on the User Heavyweight nod. It’s definitely well-deserved. I think he’s trying to single-handedly review every album on Figment – and doing a first-rate job at it.

    * Been listening to this great light metal instrumental album lately; ‘Geneva’ by Russian Circles. Highly recommended, and streams in full from their website.

    I just checked out Angus Khan after listening to the podcast and i gotta say they’re pretty awesome

  5. frizbee Says:

    Great podcast as usual! Thanks again for the kind words and the honor of being an Industry Heavyweight. I’m glad I did the part justice.

    On the subject of creating a top 10 Figment bands list…man, that might be a tough one. But I know Fait Accompli and Big Poppa would be on my list for sure. I’ll get back to you on the remaining 8.

  6. theHoseman Says:

    Angus Khan was kind of cool, but I really liked the Above and RX Bandits.
    Been listening to both of their stuff for the last hour while I was writing up the Shot Full of Love! page. Thanks for the recommendation! Never heard of any of them before.

    -I have had the same issue as Javdoc a few times when I’ve tried to post something, get an error page, try to post it again etc, then look and there is multiple copies of my post.
    (though I think this is not what we’re talking about here?)
    I agree, some days I log on and my whole ‘Fan Interaction’ section is filled up with one user’s shouts and I can’t see what activity has happened on any of my bands/albums. I’d hate to un-fan every band from the handful of users that are doing this, but I might have to, as I believe this may be the only way to not have their posts listed in my Fan Interaction (am I correct on that?)

    -Still working on an end of year list of Figment albums…tough one!

  7. frizbee Says:

    Unfortunately, I don’t think that un-fanning a band eliminates the the overabundance of Fan Interaction. I’ve un-fanned bands before and I still get updates about them. It even says I still own the album.
