Stealing the Covers .3

Written by on August 25, 2015

Time for another show of COVERS and their originals. This episode, number 16 according to my inept math/accounting, originally aired on July 28th (I think). I was in the midst of trying to gain solid footing in a new financial endeavor, in the middle of a move, and in many ways simply continuing to lose my mind as I have been doing for 45+years now. COVERS . This show features 4 pairs of songs ranging from the oddly identical to the wickedly divergent. COVERS .This description copy is currently “difficult to read”, one day I WILL find the creator of this Flesch Reading Ease Test and GoPro their bitch slapping for all the world to forever witness in a Vine. One day … but for now, I’ll settle for finishing updating this post.  COVERS .

One thing I found most interesting in producing this episode was the existence of the album from which the 6th track in the playlist comes from.  COVERS . It’s Juliana Hatfield’s cover of Elliott Smith’s haunting ode to heroin use, “Needle in the Hay”, and it is derived from a compilation of covers recorded of songs used in Wes Anderson films. The compilation is a meta project to say the least, and can be found here. The image is a link. COVERS .


Not to sidetrack myself too much but Wes, is such an interesting study in personal taste and opinion. I meet so few people who find his work mildly entertaining and can take or leave it with no visceral response either way. COVERS . Most people are either loving or hating his work. I like his intense use of color palettes, composition, and framing. It’s as if he is trying to create very droll, adult, moving graphic novels.

So with this update I am getting SO VERY VERY close to being “truly” caught up in regards to my radio show documentation. So very exciting, for reasons that are so utterly boring. COVERS .
