[ UPDATE: June 08, 2010; 9:09am:
~ (Highlights & Excerpts) section is up!
Along with a few other tidbits here & there...
Enjoy! ]


I was able to tag or note *MOST* of the tracks while listening to the show on Sunday, June 06th.

I did listen 2x, but the chat was busy, busy in AST/EST timezones and we had a bunch of new & new-ish ppl stopping by, plus I had one eye on the TV watching the hockey game on mute.
Also known as #howManyElectronicDevicesCanYouRunAtOneTime.. LOL. Actually... I've had more going in the past, but who's counting.
Whoa.. wish I could have sat & watched that whole game.. it looked like #playoffHockey finally showed up in this series!

[ Like the good #Habs fan I am.. I must say.. Go Hawks!
Kick some Flyer ass for me ;)

And UPDATE:
The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup.. in case you weren't watching for some reason..
At least Philly didn't win. So aside from it being a non-Canadian team.. and not the Habs.. I guess it's not so bad.
Time for summer.. and thinking about next year..
Go Habs Go! ]


I managed to record most of the songs in the PST timezone listen.. as the chat was really quiet then. So there will be as full & a complete list as I can muster.. as soon as I can get it up!
G12 Count Down is updated & complete. AND the full playlist is up at the end!

It *almost* makes up for my Shazam fiasco this past week.. still makes me wanna cry over all the data/tracks/info I lost.
Still hoping I might be able to get it back.. but not holding my breath. Sigh.

UPDATE: Shazam has contacted me on Twitter.. so I am getting some customer support. Only problem now is they are in the UK, so we have mega timezone differences on our DM's. But hoping it can be solved!

All tracks played on the show are in: Blue and Bold!
So they are easy to view/find/read on the page with all the other notes. Hope that helps! Feedback welcome!

Any Errors and/or Omissions are totally my fault!
IF.. you have any corrections or info that I'm missing, please comment or ping me & I'll update the blog list!
Thanks.
Enjoy.

AND.. as always.. Feedback, comments, notes, etc are ALWAYS welcome!


*** And please note.. the G12 Count Down (and full playlist this time) is now posted up The Strombo Show Website as of sometime on June 09, 2010 (afternoon-ish I think)! ***

However, George is leaving this week for a road-trip (along with a few of his producer types). I think they are doing some video stuff for The Hour.

George is doing it on motorbike, and I think one of his producer buds is driving. Then I believe Mr. Stroumboulopoulos heads to LA for a bit.. for the summer.

MINI-UPDATE:
G also mentioned on Twitter today (yesterday), well June 07/10 that he was packing his motorbike.. which is indeed a feat when doing a long road trip.

I've done that many, MANY times. But on a GoldWing (and sometimes w/a Quickcamp Trailer).. so there is a hellva a lot more space on it than most bikes.

Anyways.. since I can't offer George my seriously sexy and awesome Tetris packing prowess & powers from here..

I can at least post the song he mentioned he had on repeat whilst figuring out the loading & balancing of the gear on the bike
(and if you have a trailer.. tongue weight.. oy!) And hell.. just making sure everything that you want, or need to bring will fit in those wee saddlebags! Ugh.. but worth it.. for the ride!

Song is (direct link): Kurtis Mantronik - Mad

Or embedded:

Kurtis Mantronik (deets) - From Wikipedia.

So.. I ended up with it on repeat as well today (& yesterday).. b/c.. well.. if you've listened.. you'll know why... but I had to stop after about 10x.. as I wasn't getting a single thing done b/c I was dancing around.. dancing in my chair.. grooving w/my water bottle, or mug of tea in my hand.. and generally accomplishing nada!

However.. if you managed to get any packing done while listening G.. VERY IMPRESSIVE.

Oh.. and don't forgot your first aid kit (& bike tool kit)!
Always important to have.. and hope you never have to use 'em!
Two o'the most important bits on the bike.. even before your toothbrush & towel IMHO :)

And I'm wishing for a safe and beautiful sunny ride all the way from TO to LA for ya!

I'd tell you what this video clip is.. but it's my going away present for you. Surprise!
;)

We'll miss ya G (and The Hour), but have fun playing.. and don't do anything I wouldn't do (which keeps it pretty open.. lol ;) And if you happen to feel like driving back on your way home via Vancouver & taking me for a bike ride.. that'd be ok too.. haha...

So I'm hoping they can still get some of the missing shows up.. (over at Strombo.com) and this show's streaming "web-cast" would be awesome too (hint, hint).. as I know A LOT of people missed the show this Sunday, with having to pick btwn music & playoff hockey again.

Plus.. on 2nd listen.. I realized this show might be in my top 5 shows.. (from the move to CBC Radio 2 ones..) I'm still pining away for that missing show & playlist from December 20th, 2010.
I'd be so happy.. (AND I'll make you more cookies.. just let me know where to mail 'em) if you managed to get that up for me..
Think of it as a belated X-mas prezzie for me! ;)

[ I keep evolving this layout each week (but working on a template/regular format to stick with & make my life easier & to get the playlist up sooner!).. and now coding it in either Notepad, or since I'm VERY visual & really like color-coding ;) & didn't put Visual Studo back on my computer.. I'm using FrontPage.. but a newer non-evil-ish version..
So if you have any suggestions/ideas, please let me know by commenting somewhere on the blog. ]

And.. I decided last week that the list being 1-12 here instead of
12-1 like it is on the show and in the full playlist hurt my head, so I changed it to the proper order of things. No one has complained, so I'm going with it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
G12 Count Down ~ June 06, 2010
[ My NOTEs in italics ]

[ UPDATE (June 10, 2010): As mentioned above G12 confirmed!

Might be Thurs/Friday before I'll have any time to search to finalize or confirm it, unless The Strombo Show Website gets it up sooner. ]


[ Thanks to @kelgura, @wildworks, @ragzey_z (Alex), @KerriGwen, (and anyone else I may have missed.. sorry..) in the Skype chat on Sunday night at various times for your help in catching the songs & band names! ]

G12 - #12: Zeus - At The Risk Of Repeating
Last week #12: Kings Go Forth - I Don't Love You No More


[ I hunted about last week a wee bit and couldn't find much for Zeus at the time. Since they are here in the G12 again, different song,
I'll see what I can root up this week on them, free tracks maybe...
if you have any cool links.. post 'em in the comments. Thanks!

Last weeks song #7 song was by Zeus, so you can at least have a listen if you liked them. Last.FM: Zeus – The Renegade ]


G12 - #11: Club 8 - Western Hospitality
Last week #11: Voyager One – 1,000 Miles, 1,000 Deaths

[ Yah.. Again.. from The Strombo Show Chat Fan Crew for the #10 countdown track intro w/The Count! ♥'ing it, as always! ]

G12 - #10: Gabriel Mintz - Desert Sky
Last week #10: Ten Bears - Braces

[ I didn't personally catch the name/track here at all.. so Thanks to @kelgura for this one & confirmation from The Strombo Show Website. ]

G12 - #9: Arcade Fire - The Suburbs 

Last week #9: Band of Horses - Dilly

[ This is a new "Arcade Fire" song... more deets to come.. I just can't recall anything else right now. ]

G12 - #8: Drake (Feat. Lil' Wayne) - Miss Me
Last week #8: Broken Social Scene - Texaco Bitches

[ Wow. REALLY? Drake & Lil' Wayne on The Strombo Show..
on CBC Radio 2.. AND in the G12 CountDown?!?
Someone call the mainstream music police on G.
Please. Right the EFF now. And..

< ::examine head for possible damage.. maybe from his last motorcycle crash:: />
I'll have some "comments from the chat" up later.

[ Comments from the chat.. LOL:
Apparently someone did a survey of key words on the pages of his fans (I assume Drake's) on FB, and apparently his fans are superdumb. (They judged that based on grammatical correctness of their posts etc. Not sure how well it'd hold up scientifically...)
But.. I could totally see that correlation...

I just think (personally) that ANY rap singer.. or any in general that feels the need to mention their name in their song.. in ANY capcity.. over and over and over and over and over (ok.. you get the picture) again.. is just lame! #justSayin'. ]


Pavement - Unseen Power Of The Picket Fence
[ We had "Pavement" and then went straight into the Bob segment.. with Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist.

I have that up now.. in the Highlights & Excerpts section below. Good stuff in here tho.. and some great stories.

I think that is one of the things that makes a show really awesome.. not just fantastic songs, but the take-away stories the guys & G tell.

Hope to see this show up on The Strombo Show Website soon. (Have I mentioned this enough times yet?)
I can't wait to re-listen, as I often miss these "boy gossip bits"
(even listening 2x in 2 different timezones) with hosting the chat.. ]


G12 - #7: Megafaun - Volunteers
Last week #7: Zeus – (The) Renegade

[ Confirmed per Strombo.com
Haven't tried to search them out again now that I have the correct spelling. May still find some links later. ]


[ Confirmed.. "Ten Bears - Braces" is the G6, and it was in the G12 CountDown last wk @ G10. ]
G12 - #6: Ten Bears - Braces
Last week #6: Gord Downie - The Hard Canadian


G12 - #5: Shad - Lucky 1's
[ UPDATED: At least I had kinda guessed it close.. ]
Last week #5: LCD Soundsystem - Somebody's Calling Me

[ Bunch of other songs here.. including: ]

K-OS - Uptown Girl
James Brown - Please, Please, Please
The Normal - Warm Leatherette

[ And.. Ten o'Clock w/Tom.
More on that later.. in the Highlights & Excerpts section, as I have LOTS to say on this.. lots o'good stuff ;) ]


[ Bunch more other songs here.. including what sounded like some requests.. or maybe they were later.. I forget atm. ]

G12 - #4: Woods - Blood Dries Darker
Last week #4: The Chemical Brothers - Swoon
[ I did have this song listed below in the Highlights & Excerpts section.. but yah. It's G4. Confirmed. And you can have a listen here at the Your Third Dear Blog and the Woods mySpace.
NOTE: "Blood Dries Darker" is not on the mySpace playlist, hence the other link. ]


G12 - #3: LCD Soundsystem: Dance Yrself Clean
Last week #3: Mark Ronson - Bang Bang Bang (Feat. Q-Tip & MDNR)
[ Woo Hoo. REALLY liked this song.. Glad it's been confirmed as being in the G12.

I think there was a mention of an album.. "This Is Happening" (not Is This Happening as I heard it).. was released May 17, 2010. I seem to remember that now from a few shows ago.. maybe the May 16th show.. as that would make some sense right?

And the start of this song reminds me of a Blue October song.. very interesting. Can you guess which one?!

The LCD Soundsystem mySpace. I believe I may have posted this one before, but the G3 song is not one of the ones in the playlist there. Too bad! Looking for other links & DLs still... ]


G12 - #2: Earl Greyhound - Ghost And The Witness
Last week #2: Shad - Rose Garden
[ And confirmed. And some treats for you that I've had since Sunday, but had to go back thru the chat logs to find them..

The Earl Greyhound Website and Earl Greyhound mySpace
The G2 track: Ghost And The Witness is up on their mySpace if you want to have a listen again. Love that guitar.

If you sign up for their mailing list, you get a FREE song. I just did it.

And apparently you can also get another song if you follow them on Twitter: @earlgreyhound. Which I will as soon as I feel like I can move off following 909 ppl (b/c it looks so cool).. or I've 909 ppl following me.. (which ever comes first)!

And another FREE track download is available I've heard.. if you follow them on Facebook (I'll find that one later if you don't first..).

Thanks to @kelgura on Twitter for a the main website link, Twitter tip-off, etc.. on free tracks & DLs (short for DownLoads in case you don't know)! ]


G12 - #1: Neon Indian - Sleep Paralysist
[ NOTE: on their mySpace & Wikipedia the spelling is different for the track than on Strombo.com (they had "Sleep Paralysis") maybe a typo.. so I'd say that "Sleep Paralysist" is actually the correct spelling, as I have put above. ]
Last week #1: The Black Keys - Everlasting Light
[ Wow. I so didn't even get this one at all on Sunday, but also now confirmed. ]

[ The Neon Indian Wikipedia and Neon Indian mySpace
I just re-listened, and I was right.. I did keep hearing "Don't Sleep", so it makes sense that I thought that it was the song title.

And over at Stereogum.com there is this "article": Neon Indian – "Sleep Paralysist". Wow. Is he cute or what!?! ]



[ NOTE: That's the best I've got ATM on the missing tracks. Please comment if you have anything I missed! TIA.

I'll have a chance hopefully sometime in the next few days to have a listen to the missing tracks to get the rest of the correct info up.

UPDATE: The mother ship.. I mean.. The Strombo Show Website has posted the full playlist, so I "stole"... I mean... confirmed what I was missing from them (only ~3-4 songs actually... so not too bad, if I might say so)!

Thanks and spanks, and kisses and cookies boys! ;) ]

The Strombo Show Playlist: June 06, 2010 (Highlights & Excerpts) section

Ok.. the (Highlights & Excerpts) sections is up & mostly done.. but loads more I can put in here if I find the time!

And the fully "embedded" playlist.. is done.. at the very end!


~ I'm still working on the rest of the FULL playlist/"Embedded" layout like I've done in the past...

~ But this section offers some more of the comments, details, etc from the show...


If you're new to reading the blog... posts typically go up in 3 different updates/phases..
1. Get the G12 up likely Sunday night/Monday morning.
2. Update (usually) with: The Strombo Show Playlist: (Highlights & Excerpts) section.
3. Update (hopefully) with: The (full) Strombo Show Playlist Complete w/G12 "Embedded"
Hope you like the format.. comments are welcome!



We had the following "excerpts" from Sunday..

~ Yah! Bob Mackowycz was back this past Sunday!
[ We've missed you Bob. Welcome back. ]

[ We had "Pavement" and then went straight into the Bob segment.. with Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist. ]

Pavement - Unseen Power Of The Picket Fence

[ So not only will you see that they played a number of fantastic songs, but there was some really great stories from Bob & G.
I'll get into them even more in a later update, as I only have so much time right now... and can't remember them all.

But seriously.. you just need to hear the show to truly appreciate it!

SO.. REALLY hoping to see this show up on The Strombo Show Website ASAP! I can't wait to re-listen, as I really want to hear the chats again! ]


Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist - #1 (Bob's pick):
Outcast - Bombs over Baghdad (B.O.B.)

[ Haha.. anyone else notice that Bob's 1st choice was B.O.B.! LMAO.
Also... "the funky Baba".. I nearly died laughing at this comment.
And I love the shot G totally takes.. at Bob.. and Bob just ignored it.. "you don't drive" (You had to be listening really paying attention to hear/catch it.. G mumbled..) LMAO. So funny. ]


Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist - #2 (Bob's pick, I think):
Josh Rouse - Lemon Tree

[ I completely missed the commentary prior to this song being played.. but I was still thinking they were talking about songs you'd play while driving in your car..

And the first time I listened (missing the commentary of course)..
I wrote this in the chat session:
"this is a lazy day summer song.. you'd play this on the stereo at the beach.. having a nap, or sitting on the grass at English Bay late aft.. not blasting outta a car.."

And lo & behold.. 2nd listen.. that's pretty much what they were actually talking about.. holy diffusion batman... ]


Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist - #3 (more of an "Audible" really):
The Lemonheads - Mrs. Robinson

[ Oh... serious, serious flashback here! ]

Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist - #4 (G's pick):
Steve Miller Band - The Joker

[ Ohh.. the story that goes along w/this song.. sooooo good. So cute. So sweet. Hahaha... And I know what Bob means when he talks about sports bars... playing it on repeat..
I worked in one in Uni.. actually doing my massage therapy training.. whoa.. back in ~95-96.. lol.
Thankfully I like the song.. but then they put in a juke-box in.. to be "old-school" and the pool league would come in on Sunday nights & I'd be stuck listening to "The Joker" like 10x a night. ]


Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist - #5 (Bob's pick):
Miles Davis - Bye Bye Blackbird (to counter Steve Miller ;)

[ Nice hearing some Sunday night jazz on Radio 2 again.. takes me back to listening pre-Strombo show.
And I *love* Miles Davis.. he can be in my musical world everyday.. ]


Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist - #6 (I think this was G's pick):
Bran Van 3000 - Drinking in L.A.

[ I missed the pre-amble for this song... so NO clue what the reason/reference was for playing it. ]

Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist - #7 (Bob's pick, but G was in on it.. ): AC/DC - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
[ All I'm gonna say here is: "junior head-banger". LOL. Loving it.
I remember the first time I heard this song. Let's just say.. I was maybe 7-9-ish yrs old. Ugh. I just holy totally dated myself.
I now need to hear some "KISS - I Was Made for Lovin' You"! ]


A Primitive Evolution - Beyond True
[ Updated: But still not sure if it was part of the Bob & G's Summer Song Playlist?

I don't think it was for some reason. All I remember was hearing.. maybe the lyrics "won't let you down"? Maybe? I could just be making sh!t up at this pt. < ::shrug:: />. Now I know what it is, I'm off to listen! ]


Metric - Stadium Love
[ Loving some Metric. It's been a while.

Then we did return to the G12 Countdown here.
Infinitely more fun when I have all the tracks confirmed... ]


G12 - #7: Megafaun - Volunteers
Last week #7: Zeus – (The) Renegade

[ Confirmed per The Strombo Show Website. Haven't tried to search them out again now that I have the correct spelling.
May still find some links. ]


G12 - #6: Ten Bears - Braces
Last week #6: Gord Downie - The Hard Canadian

[ Confirmed.. "Ten Bears - Braces" is the G6, and it was in the G12 CountDown last wk @ G10. ]

G12 - #5: Shad - Lucky 1's
Last week #5: LCD Soundsystem - Somebody's Calling Me

[ UPDATED: At least I had kinda guessed it close.. since I knew it had be this one... or K-OS - Uptown Girl. ]
K-OS - Uptown Girl
[ Either way... to my knowledge this song was played here. ]

[ Bunch of other songs here.. including: ]

James Brown - Please, Please, Please
The Normal - Warm Leatherette


~ Ten O'Clock with Tom: Tom Waits - Downtown Train

[ Sigh. If only this had been a request.. for me.. it'd have been spot on. This is by far my FAVE Tom Waits song!

I hunted and hunted, but couldn't find the version I wanted.. w/the story intro... maybe it's been taken down. I'll keep looking, but I think this is the "original".. "offical" video?
Tom Waits - Downtown Train

And embedded.. b/c I like it so much (but wanna give ppl a choice): ]



[ I missed the G4 to G1 somehow when listening.. but the full playlist is now up on The Strombo Show Website. Which is awesome, except the embedded video in the update isn't working.. or at least when I last tried to play it. So I've confirmed the rest of the missing G12 CountDown list here and some of the songs that were played in this section are as follows: ]

Michael Andrews Feat. Gary Jule - Mad World (Alternative Mix)
Patti Smith - P**s (Piss) Factory
[ And interesting to hear.. since Patti Smith is the Album Side featured as well. ]

Buzzcocks - What Do I Get?
[ Yes. Another one of the reasons I so ♥ The Strombo Show.
The Buzzcocks need to be on every show.. except, I don't think they have that many songs.

(So good thing it's not "Radio Nine o'Clock w/the Buzzcocks", as at least Tom Waits has such a massive discography.. that it would be years before G would run out of Tom songs. ]


Stereo MC's - Connected
[ Hells Yeah. Dancing around my living room.. and I know I wasn't the only one having a wee dance party when this song came on.
Let me tell ya! (And I think this was a request for "Jeffie"?) ]


G12 - #4: Woods - Blood Dries Darker
[ It's G4. Confirmed. I did have this song listed here in the Highlights & Excerpts section.. originally.. so yeah me! Lol. ]

G12 - #3: LCD Soundsystem: Dance Yrself Clean
[ Lots of deets, info & links up in the G12 list.
And the start of this song reminds me of a Blue October song..
Can you guess which one?! ]


Stone Temple Pilots - Big Empty

[ And I noticed right about here that it seemed like we were missing something. That we hadn't and weren't likely going to hear from Rich Terfry tonight.

There were a lot of songs being played for quite a stretch here and NO talking.

~ So... NO Rich this week. Damn.

Hope it's not a one or the other thing now.. Bob or Rich, not both?! Not sure I could pick.. :( ]


Faith No More - I'm Easy
[ I have had this song in my head since Sunday. Actually since Sunday morning.. (before it was played on the show..) when I got home from #dancingTilDawn and posted this on Twitter:
"So I'm making #perogies.. @ ~4am. This's what happens when you don't drink or do substances, you get home from the party VERY hungry! ;) LOL"
4:11 AM Jun 6th via HootSuite

I'm still singing it right now. Good thing I like it.. a lot. But this version is the best. ]


Sublime - Waiting For My Ruca
[ Also REALLY liked the "Sublime" song.. Sadly, it was not in the G12 as I had hoped... maybe another time.

And.. When I wrote before:
(Missed a track here.. Vampire something.. Vampire Hands? Vampire... sigh.)

Who know I was actually rather close..
Umm.. Vampire anything snaps my head around.. so I will trapise off to Goggle to find out more about Vampire Hands.. for me.. and for you! Actually found LOTS o'cool stuff to share.. and will post later.. as I'm too tired right now ;) ]


Vampire Hands - Paradise Knight Fights

Broken Bells - Mongrel Heart
The Shins - Turn On Me
New York Dolls - Personality Crisis

[ Had this track correct in the G12, but not it's placement.
Now all is right in the world ;) ]

G12 - #2: Earl Greyhound - Ghost And The Witness
Last week #2: Shad - Rose Garden
[ Links, downloads and info galore above in the G12 CountDown Listing Section! ]

G12 - #1: Neon Indian - Sleep Paralysist
Last week #1: The Black Keys - Everlasting Light
[ And the G1. So here ends the G12 CountDown for another week. ]

Le Tigre - The The Empty
[ Ummm.. not much good I can say about "Le Tigre".. NOT like-y! Really didn't enjoy. As in.. bad, bad song.. makes me want to do bad things.. like shoot stuff.. or ppl.. like her. Nuff said. It really irriated me. Like it could be used for torture.. I'm pretty sure. ]

M.I.A. - Born Free (Radio Version)

[ Since I missed a whole wack o'the latter G12 songs..

I've tried to put up everything else in the playlist and all the others I did catch.. so *almost* kinda a full playlist sneak peek.. right here... since I'm nice to y'all that way.

And the FULL playlist is up BELOW!
Hey. I think someone needs to make *ME* cookies here.


And b/c George played some awesome sexy stuff here (and next as well)..

I couldn't wait to list 'em. And have now moved this stuff down into the Highlights & Excerpts section *RIGHT HERE*.. and full playlist section at the end.. If I can bloody well figure out the songs I missed! ;) ]


Queens Of The Stone Age - God Is In The Radio
[ Freaking loved hearing this song on the radio. Brilliant! ]

Slayer - South Of Heaven
[ Ohhh.. OHHHH. My *FAVE* Slayer song. I'm kinda in heaven myself still right now.. Thanks G. ]

Into the Album Side: Patti Smith - Horses


~ "Album Side": Patti Smith - Horses
[ Details from the Wikipedia: Patti Smith - Horses and
Wikipedia: Patti Smith ]


[ Side 1. ]
[ 1. "Gloria" (Patti Smith, Van Morrison) – 5:57
Part I: "In Excelsis Deo"
Part II: "Gloria"
2."Redondo Beach" (Smith, Richard Sohl, Lenny Kaye) – 3:26
3. "Birdland" (Smith, Sohl, Kaye, Ivan Kral) – 9:15
4. "Free Money" (Smith, Kaye) – 3:52 ]


Album Side #1: Patti Smith - Gloria
Part I: "In Excelsis Deo"
Part II: "Gloria"

[ I'm assuming that both these parts listed were played since it was a straight-thru on the album side. ]
Album Side #2: Patti Smith - Redondo Beach
Album Side #3: Patti Smith - Birdland
Album Side #4: Patti Smith - Free Money

[ The end.. of the "Album Side". ]

~ The "Big Lie-Down"
[ And once again it appears we went straight from the "Album Side" into the "Big-Lie Down". With George going right to the midnight hour AGAIN.. just fitting in the last 3-4 tracks of the show!

Pretty amazing timing.. I know. I've done radio.
Can't imagine what 4 HOURS of programming is like though.. ]

From the "Big Lie-Down" segment of the show:
[ I think the "Intro/Background Music" (taking us to the collective horizontal) was here.. ]

Collective Horizontal - The Big "Lie-Down" - #1:
James Blackshaw - Skylarks Harolds Dawn

[ Ok. I was close.. w/my guess of.. (Something..) Herald's Dawn.
I kinda missed this track.. I'll confirm it later. Just roll with it for now.. unless you know... then comment & correct me! I don't mind.
Gorgeous, gorgeous song tho.. so I WILL find out more.. and share it with you! Found lots of links, but not of the song yet.. will post later.. when eyes can remain open! ]


Collective Horizontal - The Big "Lie-Down" - #2:
Black Mountain - Night Walks

[ Ummmmm.. Black Mountain. ]

Collective Horizontal - The Big "Lie-Down" - #3:
Pink Mountaintops - How Can We Get Free

[ Pink Mountaintops. Awesome. Not my fave song by them.. but they are seriously pretty, pretty and perfect Big "Lie-Down" tunes! ]


[ Last song of the night.. that I Shazam'd... maybe it wasn't part of the show, but a part of Nightstream?!! Which means George finished a bit early. And it isn't on the playlist up on The Strombo Show Website, so I guess that means no. Hence the strike-thru. But I left it as a few people asked me about what the song name was. ]
Collective Horizontal - The Big "Lie-Down" - #4:
Daniel Johns / Paul Mac - 3

  1. You may be George's perfect woman JazDolphin.

  2. LMAO..

    Haha.. well.. not sure what to say to that really.. except.. that'd be up to George I'd think.

    Question actually is.. would he be the perfect man for me?! The boy'd have to be able to keep up.. and treat me right! #justSayin' ;)

    LOL.
    Cheers,

  3. Do you want to go on a date with George ?

    P.G.

  4. P.G.

    So many questions.
    Haha.. what are you.. his marriage broker?!

    Sure.. I'd go on a date w/George.. if he asked me directly (and nicely ;).

    I haven't been dating much lately, as I don't come across many guys who really "snap my head around". At least certainly he does that.. and I'd probably laugh a lot!

    So.. what the hell.. there'd be nothing to lose & I doubt it'd be boring.. and you never know ;)

    Oh.. wait.. there is the minor detail of me living in Vancouver & he's in Toronto.. so not too likely it's gonna happen.

    Cheers,
    Michelle/Dolphin.

  5. Cool. Then I wonder why you go through all the trouble of doing these Strombo Show Chats ?

  6. P.G.,

    Haha.. well.. I'm certainly not doing any of this to get a date w/George.. there'd be much easier ways to do that I'm sure.

    I think I sorta have an answer to your question posted back here:
    Unofficial Strombo Show Chat
    .. and I've been asked the question a few times.. so I'm (slowly) working on a post, or and "About Page" for that info..

    But simply.. I *love* music & radio, I love the approach to the show that G takes (& the music he plays on it.. ~90-95% of the time) & I'll do this blog/chat/etc stuff as long as it entertains me, I have time for it & I feel like it.

    I approach it from a place that it needs to be low stress & fun for me.. (as I mostly do it for me.. and the chat regulars & now others benefit from the chat, the playlist, the links, etc).

    If I do it, I can, if I can't, I don't. If I was being paid.. that'd be different.. but I do it b/c I enjoy it. If that changes, then I don't do it.. or maybe there are people out there that will help with it.. who knows..


    Best regards,
    Yours in musical awesome-ness!

As it turns out, I can't turn off the "Anonymous Users" part of the commenting form w/out also losing other formating I like, so I'll have to live with it. However, I do hope that those that comment here will make an effort to at least use a name of some sort. Or if you have a blog or website you can include it under the "Name/URL" option.

I do welcome all comments regardless and while you are not obliged to leave anything more than the comment, this blog is about engaging and sharing so I hope you will do the same.

Best regards,
Yours in musical awesome-ness!
