Episode 34 Preview - Big Sur

And, thus, Robruary comes to a close.  We're all a bit older, a bit wiser.  And by "all", I mean just me.  "But what happened to you after college, Rob?" you might be asking yourself, kind listener.  Thanks for asking, I very much appreciate that you care so very much.  To tell you, you'd need to listen to a little song by The Thrills called "Big Sur"

Episode 33 - A Lack Of Color

Here's the sad, penultimate chapter of Robruary in which I talk, alone, about Death Cab for Cutie's "A Lack of Color" and how it made me the man I am today.  There will be tragedy.  There will be heartache.  There will be copious moments of sad-sackery.  I solemnly swear that this episode is well within the FDA limits of wracking man-sobs.  Barely within the limits.

Please very much enjoy!

Episode 33 Preview - A Lack of Color

If "What's My Age Again?" represents the beginning of my college years then "A Lack of Color" by Death Cab For Cutie represents the end of college.  So, it's sad and filled with the fun, transitional pain of becoming an adult.  It's a real humdinger!

Episode 32 - What's My Age Again?

It's the final of the "I'm Recording In a Car" trilogy with special guest, Brendon and special song, Blink-182's "What's My Age Again?"  Much like the Star Wars prequels, this episode comes first chronologically and has a lot of terrible CG effects.  It also features the next chapter of Robruary in which a college-aged Rob finds Blink-182 depressing--not depressing depressing--Brendon opines his lack of blankets in the cold New England nights, and everybody has more fun.  MORE FUN!!!

Episode 31 - Where Is My Mind?

Robruary goes big with writer, Tom Chick, joining me to share his thoughts on "Where Is My Mind?".   You won't believe your ears as we discuss our mutual love of "Fight Club", how much Tom and Black Francis have in common, subliminal genitals, and the eternal question: what happens to our pee during outdoor music festivals? You're listening to this episode at a very strange time in my life.

Remember to check out Tom's site, Quarter To Three and be sure to donate to their movie podcast fund drive and vote for the crew to watch "The Goonies".  It's a great way to support their awesome work and a simple way to get a birthday gift for me!

Episode 30 - You Oughta Know

Barring show tunes "Jagged Little Pill" by Alanis Morisette was the first CD I ever owned.  I received it as a birthday present when I was 16.  Finally, I could listen to Ironic, Head Over Feet, and You Oughta Know from the comfort of my own home.

This week Carolyn Brillon stops by over Skype to share her thoughts about You Oughta Know because it's the only tune that rocks as hard as Robruary.  We review the pros and cons of scratching other people's backs, if it's worth going down on a sticky movie theater floor to retrieve candy, and a whole bunch of other shenanigans that kept us up past bedtime.

Please very much enjoy!

Episode 30 Preview - You Oughta Know

It's February which means my birthday is coming up soon.  So, to celebrate, we're going to take a month-long autobiographical journey into music: I'm calling it Robruary...because I suck.  We're starting with Alanis Morisette's "You Oughta Know".  If you were alive in the 90's you've heard this song a billion times.
