prplmtn(s) majesty – a  track-by-track review
by Jeff
The self-titled and only record by Purple Mountains (Purple Mountains) might be my #1 album of the damn year! Oh hell yes, I just said it. A+ for sure ...

Things get started with one of the best damn lead tracks on any album ever: "That's Just the Way That I Feel." The lyric "When I try to drown my thoughts in gin / I find my worst ideas know how to swim" ... does it get any better than that? Yes, it does actually: EVERY OTHER DAMN LINE IN THIS SONG.

Then there's track 2: "All My Happiness is Gone." I can hear those sweeping synth strings forever in my heart baby. Mega <3

Shit keeps rocking with "Darkness and Cold." Gotta love that country howl ... all my favorite BACKGROUND singers COULD sing (apparently) ... jk lol

"Snow is Falling in Manhattan" slows things up, but continues to warm my heart. Nice track placement, DCB!

Some might say that the fifth track, "Margaritas at the Mall" is the Bop ... it's at least the record's "spiritual" Bop, in more ways than one, that's for sure ;)

"She’s Making Friends, I’m Turning Stranger" confirms that, hell yes this record is going to have longer song titles than any previous Silver Jews record. (This ain't your daddy's Silver Jews, kids ... buckle up).

On "I Loved Being My Mother’s Son" we get one of the most straightforward and tender songs in the catalogue ever ... Umm, can you say Lucky Us much?

There's nothing as explicitly bleak as "Nights That Won't Happen," a song that is about death and only death. Nice.

Things getting chugging again with the penultimate "Storyline Fever," another one so jammed pack with ace couplets it would be dumb to just highlight a single one.

The closer "Maybe I’m the Only One For Me" could be seen as some kinda warped companion to "Honk If You're Lonely Tonight." The line "I'll have to learn to like myself" isn't so much as a plea, but a statement of regret. This record sucks. I love it.

I can't fucking focus or can I? #BreakingNews

File 14353 ah yes I know the one; it rings true and scrapes against my inner ear until the blood-curdling screams are fully inside (no one else can hear them).

On the Occasion It is Done

From here on forth to be known as the OCCASION POINT: A state of mind, located in a time and place: REDACTED. Let the record show that at 3:29 and 42 seconds, P.M. EST on a Tuesday – November the 12th, 2019, the subject was weighed and cataloged in as potential Demise Candidate: Level Shitstorm. This does not, of course, take into consideration any recent improvement and/or movie reviews (recorded in podcast form or otherwise). That the subject wished to be called "Occasion Point" or be allowed to start a band or arts collective using that name at some future juncture, is not something the committee wishes to take up at this time. He's hereby been sentenced to conduct the task of creating a music album of sorts, called thusly God 2, utilizing previous branding efforts ("Just Jeff"), and given a timeframe of 72 years to fulfill the requirement, we feel an adequate addition to the previous stipulations of the OCCASION POINT. If the subject wishes to weigh himself at any time in the 72-year framework wherein he finds himself alive he must first purge the system with a black cherry and sauerkraut mixture. Given the vast ocean of the 72-year framework we strongly encourage the subject to think of any moment in time within it as both yesterday and, more importantly, today; we feel this offers all involved a more substantial opportunity to gain that hot R.O.I.

All hail the dedication machine

It's been... a long time coming.


Sure. Sure thing.

I've always considered the ephemeral content (90+% of this blog's output) a big part of... of... whatever this is. MY AMERI DOT CA. But truth be told, while I love this place––I've put a lot into it!––logistically, posting here can be a nightmare. I'm using the Google platform "Blogger" to send this out to the world. I love "Blogger"––it will have a place in my heart till damn kingdom come! But, Google does not "love" Blogger. There is no Blogger app, no crucial web updates in the past ~5+ years that make it worth still using. It's a relic. The WWW is made for relics, though. And so long as they're not turning out the lights, I'll still keep buying the URL every other year.

It's the definition of futile: this venture (me: making "art") is the exact polar opposite of whatever R.O.I. is, in every possible facet. More like J.O.I.! Wait, actually.

! ! ! But I can't quit posting ! ! !

Even, as I noted, this has stopped making sense, and to call it "art" is getting more and more difficult too: I gotta do it. I do it over here (🍀), ya know. Have been for awhile now. The reality is such that platforms matter. All platforms matter. And when it comes to the posting and the shitposting and the art, this ain't cutting it.

And so this website will exist primarily as the database. I might even go through and scrub most of the archives. Not sure yet. Such is the life of a lowly #shrimpblogger.

it's not chicken it's chicken plus™

(h) i n

what am i supposed to do with that information?

the daily drags

Every moment after every moment feels like the moment to break it all done (start fresh the morrow!) but I can fight against it; I just ate a green Γ’ and I am ready to embrace my destiny as a TIN MAN

of the many threads and tangents this unwieldy, almost an hour and twenty minutes long episode takes, one unrealized thought i'd like to realize now is this: this chilly a.m., i stepped outside of my house and noticed the ~5 hours of lawn work i did yesterday and it felt really nice; i felt proud of the work. i was too busy feeling pissy and sorry for myself that i had to do it while i was doing it, instead of putting on some headphones and enjoying the weather or just... breathing and enjoying my life on this planet... anything else than what i did: i did the work in a stew and it sucks that i did that, because A) the reward was/is enjoyable, and B) the process should have been as well. i couldn't even enjoy it when i was done because i was mad that i had missed the freaking early NFL London game which wasn't even a good game! what a dumb thing to be 'mad at' !!! speaking of leaves, i have turned over way more than my allotted amount but one takeaway from all that Sunday yard work, is that there truly is an  amount of leaves. each day is a new opportunity to do something better, do something new, do something you've done before but take a minute, no take a five seconds to actually appreciate. as eminem said,

If you had 
One shot 
Or one opportunity 
To seize everything you ever wanted 
In one moment 
Would you capture it 
Or just let it slip?

Part of me wants to be one of those guys who gets rid of all his clothes and then just buys many versions of the SAME outfit, like I could go with an all black look and just buy x amount of one type of black shirt, pants, workout gear etc etc I mean I probably wouldn't go with black I would probably go with some interesting color palette like the state flag of Colorado or something but still being that guy is A LOT and I'm not prepared to deal with the fallout honestly

I think I've bypassed some kind of gatekeeper status at IMDB because my reviews pass inspection almost instantaneously now. I have MANY MANY of these in the can and will be staggering their release as I get back into **drum-roll** the movie review podcasting game! **big reggaeton horn** that's right, my movie reviews as well as my dumb podcast in genereal are returning shortly. Until then, check out my user account on IMDB: ernestsavesxmas

welp, close it down

impossibly bleak::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

my teeth are too fucked up to eat ANY halloween candy this year

i'm just like, uh, posting this here as a reminder/beacon/warning (¿) to, uh, not eat any halloween candy... cool. Everything's fine.
Tired of waiting
it's time to finally transition into the role I was born to play: Super Smart Guy. I'm going to start reading actual books know and learning historical and maybe even scientific facts. It's been too long.
weirdly... just got a notification that i got a new follower
on - wait for it ...
which is definitely a platform i didn't think still existed
any how, it's weird social media/networking tek stuff on the blog today
thanks for reading
and follow my dumbass

Facebook is completely F*CKED !
I mean: not breaking any news here Obvs
but, for ex: I tried to log-in to delete the long dormant vernonhowl page
and to do this I first needed to upload a photo I.D. ? WTF
That's not even a real person... Now the account is apparently fully Locked. So fucked. They truly are trying to create a database of every human on earth to then sell that information to XY&Z and will stop at nothing in pursuit of this goal... even pseudonyms born in the early 00s aren't safe!

Latenight(ish) yesterday, I had a non-fever waking fever dream wherein I picked up my "mostly shitty but realizing again now maybe somewhat cool" kindle ipad fire thingie (7?) and opened up a digi-painting app I think it's called Art Rage. Anyhoot. Here are my brain's (FIXED!) two concoctions which are now future fake album covers and I like them both quite a bit I think. The one on the left is supposed to be representative of the Roman Numeral C (as in "100"). And the one on the right is, you know, a kooky dog (nothing to explain there?). If you happen to be a musician looking for an album / album title / cover art / concept / etc, please by all means go ahead and steal either of these right now! Have at it! Mazel Tov!
