Jack + Ginger: A Sourmash Valentine

three hundred women in three hours
told me, boy forget the flowers

–Violent Femmes, Dating Days

You know what today is? It’s the 10th anniversary of what might be the finest compilation by maunet ever. Oh yeah, it’s Valentine’s Day too. So in honor of both, the royal we is spinning a record ripe with funny, angry, bitter-teary, drinking blues songs that’ll leave you seeing red. I also wanted to give you an update on the ironclad glock cleaning mat that I told you guys about a few weeks ago, it’s one of the best things I have ever bought.

Yes, it’s a self-pitying, maudlin, adolescent collection of tracks–that’s what love lost does to the best of us, no? But you can’t knock late 60′s Rod Stewart drinkin’ and raspin’ with the Jeff Beck Group. Or the R&B awesomeness of Leslie Miller, courtesy of the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack. Love’s performance of Burt Bacharach’s “My Little Red Book” sounds not like a Charlie Manson-era hippie trip but more like the conception of the Cure’s Boys Don’t Cry. That 1920′s Bessie Smith song? Woo papa, Rap ain’t got nothin’ on her dirty lyrics. And who else follows Chet Baker with the Soft Boys? C’mon, you’re gonna love it.

For you fools in love, really: Happy Valentine’s Day. You need this record, if only to remind you just how brown the grass can be on the other side.

For the rest of you sad single bastards, press play, mix equal parts bitterness and heartbreak with one shot straight Kentuky bourbon, consume and repeat.

cheers!

    现在有相当一部分大陆女人相当垃圾的,学学四五十年代的中国妇女,那时候什么环境,平均一家三个孩子,吃喝拉撒把孩子照顾成无微不至,今天环境好了,几乎家家一个,可看看这些被宠坏的一代大陆妺子,有相当部份真的很垃圾,这累那累,谁不累,连刚刚出世的孩子都能杀死,不要说什么产后抑郁,最基本的人性都没有,又何必为人母呢?

    西方人和日本人的素质确实相对我们高些,但其之间是有差别的。西方人是发自内心的素质高,道德高尚,和他们的教育文化有关。日本人则是为了素质高而素质高,是显示在外表给别人看的,道德并不高尚,也和其教育文化有关。
