Or think about San Jose, although I know it's not that pleasant

I haven't posted any videos in awhile so hear are some. I suppose the theme is songs that I have not yet over-played.

Cracker - Big Dipper. This one loads slowly. The Richmonders look back to Santa Cruz. An under- appreciated gem.

The Wedding Present -Brassneck. Another slow loader, but what a song this is. Such a crime it did not get more play. Perhaps the finest of break-up songs - "I was wondering if it could be like before, and I think you just made me sure."

Peter, Bjorn & John - Young Folks. The definition of infectious. Don't judge it by the Conan appearance. The studio version has the rhythm section way up front.

Ladytron - Destroy Everything You Touch. Wierd video, great song.

Decemberists - Cuyahoga. They cover one of the greatest of all REM songs. Remember that awesome poster Walked, Swam, Hunted, Danced and Sang poster? That's from this song. Just for fun here is Death Cab covering the same song.

...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead - Stand in Silence. Just a good song.

Shiny Toy Guns - Don't Cry Out. This one is borderline for me, but is working for now. It verges too close to dance music and I fear dancing.

David Cross - One Card. Cross covers the song that proves that Satan is winning.

Is it just me or does Colin Melloy look like Dwight from The Office? Love the Cracker vid.
