    Very thorough, I never knew you had this rattling around in that head of yours! Congrats-I enjoyed it most pleasingly! What’s next?

  5. What about an entry on the combined and long-term effects of listening to DJ Shadow and Dr. Octagon at high volumes in enclosed spaces for extended periods of time? Horse tonsils.

  6. oh bear.

    these days.
    why don’t you come back to new york.
    for somebody’ sake.

  7. Hi —

    You mention on one of your blog posts that you have a recording of Charles Aznavour singing “Pretty shitty days”… Would you have this as an MP3 by chance? I have it on LP, but I would love to have it for my iPod.


  8. What a happy accident to find this blog. Yours is hands down the BEST music blog I have ever read. May I be so bold as to request a post on Scott Walker?

  9. BEAR,

    If you match all of the qualifications above, you will have the chance to be a featured blogger on the clients VERY popular site…and GET PAID for it!!!

    a friend told me about this blog (which i thought you would be into): http://bigstates.blogspot.com/


  13. I think your blog is great. Thanks for the links over to Setting The Woods On Fire and Groover’s Paradise.

    I wanted to get in touch with you through e-mail but couldn’t find it here on the site. Can you send it to me?

  14. I wonder if its just a hype retro fitted / appropriated thematic blogg , c’mon you had to be there to know the 60’s 70’s, but i appreciate your efforts,

  15. Just stumbled across your blog and am so so glad I did.


  16. Thanks, your blog is cool, too.

  17. Your page on Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack was great. Their duet “The Closer I Get to You” is hauntingly beautiful and it’s so sad that he killed himself, being a man of such beautiful music and commitments. I learned some good things about both of them from your blog.

  18. I´ve just discovered a great web 🙂
    hi from Spain!

  19. Miss you, dear Gentlebear. From far away Germany. I’m looking all over again, if you might have returned. What has happened?
