he just needs to up his game.
get someone else to sing his songs.
since he publicly critized the other paper and alive for not covering him more before, he should now publicly thank them.
other than that, it seems he has the work ethic it takes to succeed, which sometimes is all it really takes.May 8, 2007 1:17 pm at 1:17 pm in reply to: THEE MORE SHALLOWS | OUTER SPACIST | GREENLAWN ABBEY 5/19 #125163
it’s been 2 yrs since i’ve added a new album to my best of collection
it may sound cheesy coming from me, but the book of bad breaks is in there. i listen to this cd at least once a day. i’ve been following this band since they started working with odd nosdam. not that i like his work by himself, but he really really adds a good element to a band like this.
for those that don’t know anything about odd nosdam, and are bored/interested…
Odd Nosdam’s Bio
Born deep in the ReaderÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Digest belt of the middle U.S.Ã¢â‚¬â€Cincinnati, OhioÃ¢â‚¬â€in the bicentennial year of 1976 to a Catalonian belly dancer and a farm-raised Iowan engineer, D. Philip Madson a.k.a. odd nosdam is someone for whom nothing ever rolls along predictably. He played trumpet in elementary school band, hoops on Porkopolis side streets, drew, and skated, but when he stole the 3 Feet High and Rising tape from a party in 8th grade, he hardly could have imagined the decade and a half romance that would follow.
A young odd nosdam began meddling with machines in the mid-90’s, looping his favorite Nirvana riffs and Black Moon beats on a Sega Genesis and filling tape after tape with noise collages. In his early 20’s, while attending the Art Academy of Cincinnati, this passion bloomed into utter fixation when he purchased a Dr. Sample and Tascam cassette 8-track, and soon after met and collaborated with doseone and why? on their fabled greenthink tapes. In March of 2001, after compiling five collections of short-attention-span instrumental pieces, producing the highly- acclaimed cLOUDDEAD self-titled debut as well as co-producing reaching quiet ‘s in the shadow of the living room LP, he left mom’s house for the sunnier environsÃ¢â‚¬â€both artistically and stratosphericallyÃ¢â‚¬â€of Berkeley, California, around which the rest of anticon. had already begun to settle.
nosdam begins his art-making by imagining and holding in mind a very specific sound, and then scouring dumpsters, thrift stores, swap meets, the free bins outside record stores, and yard sales across the U.S. (and occasionally Europe) in order to make concrete the elusive dimensions of that dreamed-up sound. With the raw material of long-forgotten duds in handÃ¢â‚¬â€Ã¢â‚¬Å“the most worthlessly obscure records I can find in the basements of Walnut, IowaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s many antique shops,Ã¢â‚¬Â as he notesÃ¢â‚¬â€he then brings an arsenal of samplers (the E-mu Systems SP1200, the Akai MPC 2000, and the good Boss Dr. Sample SP-202 ) to bear on his far-flung sound sources. As of late, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s taken to blurring sampling and instrumentationÃ¢â‚¬â€especially favoring the Micro Moog and the drum setÃ¢â‚¬â€as well as to weaving into his music a wealth of self-made field recordings. His recording process similarly twines the inimitable tape warmth of his cassette 8 track and the minute precision of Pro Tools, and within his menagerie of machines he tries to maintain a certain rapidity of pace and spontaneity. His influencesÃ¢â‚¬â€ Prince Paul, Lee Ã¢â‚¬Å“ScratchÃ¢â‚¬Â Perry, Hood, and Flying Saucer Attack foremost among themÃ¢â‚¬â€suffuse his musical sensibility without overpowering it. nosdamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s genuine, minted uniqueness is the sum of his broad aesthetic appetite, his source material, his chamber of machines, and the quirks, eccentricities, and wild turns of emotion probably evident just below the surface of the finished work.
Finally, nosdam attempts to let each projectÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s particular demands dictate his approach, be it the droney wash of the first cLOUDDEAD LP; the unpredictable pop of the follow-up, Ten; the neck-snap simplicity of the Ã¢â‚¬Å“jeep beatsÃ¢â‚¬Â (as Yellow Rat Bastard has described them) heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s provided for Sage Francis and sole Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s soapbox raps; the big-top circus sounds of reaching quiet; the pulsing 80’s riffs of his solo work (in the so-called short-attention span instrumental style); his collaboration on Mike PattonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Peeping Tom album; or his latest musicÃ¢â‚¬â€ Burner in particularÃ¢â‚¬â€which montages each of these approaches.

lifeliberty wrote might have to research for proof, but http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/420_(cannabis_culture)
Origins and Observances
It is widely accepted that in the early 1970s, a group of teenagers at San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California used to meet every day after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke marijuana at the Louis Pasteur statue.  Many cannabis users continue to observe 4:20 as a time to smoke communally. By extension April 20 (“4/20” in U.S. dating shorthand) has evolved into a counterculture holiday, where people gather to celebrate and consume cannabis.  
yeah i didn’t read the link… but someone told me this same story once. it was about a group of hs students in cali that called themselves the waldos or something similiar to that. smoked every day at 4:20 out by the h.s. school statue. a few of the guys now own smoke shops in cali still. friend said that one of the “waldos” was at a norml party up near lake erie as a guest speaker. that i guess would put even more truth behind this.
this is believable, only because there seems to be no other reasoning behind it. thought that perhaps there was a significant time actually behind it buried deep in fact. oh well, if this story is true, that makes it better in my book 8)
so does anyone know how the whole “420” thing came about?
