Glad Girls, by Guided By Voices. I have to learn it for a gig next Saturday.

The girl I'm playing with doesn't read or write music, she plays left-handed guitar, except she plays a right-handed guitar upside-down, and she likes to use tunings. I don't stand a chance of 'reading' her left - I mean right - hand to get the chords, I will just have to hope she sticks to the arrangement we played at the rehearsal. Which is by no means a given.

Robby Roadsteamer - This Album Syncs Up With Toejam & Earl

My brother bought me this a few weeks ago because it had a game I like on the cover. I haven't listened yet, but I listened to a few of the snippets on that Amazon.com page.

Needless to say, it doesn't really sync up with Toejam & Earl. It might sync up pretty well with a bong though. :idiot:

Just discovered Third Eye Blind. Not sure if I like it yet or not, I think I'll have to listen to it for another day or two before I decide.

I only know that one song, "Semi-Charmed Life". Nobody seems to understand what it's really about. Yes, it's obviously about heroin, everyone thinks that's the big surprise, but I think there's more to it than just being about heroin addiction.

I loved Toejam and Earl on the SNES. I can still remember the music...

It was composed by a man named John Baker. I have the music ripped from the Sega Genesis cartridges for the first game and the first sequel, but I haven't yet gotten around to translating it into MP3 format like I did for Shaun Hollingworth's soundtrack to Wiz'N'Liz, which is absolutely wonderful. I do have MP3s of the TJ&E music, but I recorded them with a microphone next to the TV so they're not high quality.
