Love that the Pixies are getting in on the act. They loaded this up about an hour ago. Must be their tune for day! I'll go with that.

It's Pixies all week on Reselect! Here's a tune for the day from one of their most underated Albums - Trompe Le Monde

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jo3F29JSfs

Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain was hugely influenced by the Pixies’ frequent “quiet-loud” song dynamic, which went on to shape Nirvana’s sound on Nevermind and beyond (Cobain once told Rolling Stone magazine that “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was his attempt at “ripping off the Pixies”).

and a bit of Nirvana too - play loud!

Loving the sweet taste of Jam. Classic tune! Continuing the Pixies theme - nothing better than to kick start the day with a great live performance of Gigantic from Surfer Rosa.

Cool and breezy out there -11.6 degrees and climbing.

Pixies Part 2 for everyone on the morning commute - Full speed ahead...............Alec Eiffel from Trompe de Monde

Pioneer of aerodynamics
They thought he was a real smart Alec
He thought big and they called it a phallic
They didn’t know it was panoramic
[...]
They didn’t want it but he built it anyway

It's Friday 7 October - cool and breezy out there and 10.6 degrees - hopefully climbing....

The Pixies are still sleeping so here's some Bowie to get you out of bed. Great live performance from the Old Grey Whistle Test. For all you youngsters out there - a music national institution...... enjoy



ps Pupkin - you must visit the "What's in a user name" thread. ;)

Love this video and Angus and Julia Stone's Big Jet Plane is definitely my tune for the day.



9 December 2010 - Untapped Paris

Snow may have "paralyzed" Paris in a "catastrophe" (CNN's words, not mine) yesterday, but some lightheartedly took to the streets in the first ever snowboard ride down Montmartre! What I like about this video is how it captures the trek up and the conviviality amongst children and adults alike in the snow. It's almost a Paris from the past or maybe a vision of what post-modern cities should be like, always. Look out for when they snowboard past the Beateau-Lavoir in Place Émile Goudeau, studio and home to Pablo Picasso and frequented by Henri Matisse, George Braque, Gertrude Stein and more.
