Tommy Johnson is often confused with Robert Johnson, another somewhat more famous bluesman of the same era you may or may not recognize. It didn't help that they both ended up using the "sold his soul to the devil" gimmick, though Robert Johnson played it up a lot more. Which isn't to say Tommy was more obscure, since this song is in fact the origin of pretty much all references to "Canned heat" in music. The name Tommy, not Robert was certainly used by Coen Brothers for the character in "O Brother", but it's not clear to me if the Coens actually knew Tommy and Robert were different people or if they conflated them by mistake or on purpose, since the specific detail of selling his soul to the devil at a crossroads was Tommy's, but it was Robert who recorded the famous "Crossroads".

I think this might be one of the most poignant and honest songs about addiction ever recorded. Johnson is singing about his very real addiction to drinking the methanol strained out of cans of Sterno (usually through bread).

The lyrics can be hard to understand at times, so it helps to have a copy (and I found out the first hits on Google are inaccurate):

Crying, canned heat, canned heat, mama, crying, sure, lord, killing me
Crying, canned heat, mama , sure, lord killing me
Takes alcorub to take these canned heat blues

Crying, mama, mama, mama, you know, canned heat killing me
Crying, mama, mama, mama, crying, canned heat is killing me
Canned heat don't kill me, crying, babe I'll never die

I woke up a-this mo'nin with
Canned heat on my mind
Just woke up this mo'nin
Canned heat was on my mind
Woke up this mo'nin
With the canned head, lord
On my mind

Cried, lord
Lord, I wonder
Canned heat, lord, killing me
Think alcorub is
Tearing apart my soul
Because brown-skin woman
Don't do the easy roll

I woke up a this mo'nin
Crying, canned heat round my bed
Run in here, somebody
Take these canned heat blues
Run here, somebody
An take these canned heat blue-oos.

Crying, mama, mama, mama
Crying, canned heat killing me
Plead to my soul, lord
They gon' kill me dead.

How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

So in my music collection there's sort of unofficial tiers. There's the artists for which I have their one hit, or just a handful of top songs. Then there's ones where I have a fair chunk of the collection but far from their entire catalogue. And then there's ones where I like enough of their work that I've picked up the entire catalogue lock stock and barrel. Sometimes an artist grows on me and they get upgraded.

Once I'm at the point where I have the whole catalogue, there's often plenty songs in there I've never heard, or even a few I don't like very much or which don't interest me. Because my playlist is simply my entire collection, it's always interesting to me when one of those overlooked or "negligible" songs somehow catches my interest and I end up liking it quite a bit. Sometimes it's as simple as listening more closely to a song you're used to ignoring because it didn't catch you the first time you heard it.

Anyway, tl;dr I quite like The Kinks, but this was one of the few of their songs I found gimmicky and annoying for a while, only I've warmed up to it quite a bit recently.

After watching the sequel to Breaking Bad, El Camino:



If you're a BB fan and haven't seen El Camino yet (unlikely, but) you owe it to yourself. A perfect cap on the series.

Aimee Mann? What, are they ripping off Steven Universe?

What a missed opportunity.

I recently learned who Sturgill Simpson is, and that his music comes in NSFW anime form.

I made my mom watch that last week since she has Netflix and I figured she'd be asleep by the time we got to the 3/4 naked muscle gimp dance. She didn't, but she enjoyed it.

That particular story (and the backstory leading to it) is most of the run time, but "A Good Look" as as weird as it gets. The rest is reminiscent of the animatrix, with different visual styles and at least one other animation studio. It's also kind of overall depressing, like the animatrix, taking place mostly during the apocalypse that leads the the neo-tokyo vehicular warzone shown above.

I love that Sturgill Simpson's career goes from classic Hillbilly Music ballads to smooth Alt-Country to psychedelic disco samurai V8 rock or whatever.

As I recall, the story of that album is that he took so many edibles he had to be hospitalized, and then wrote the whole thing while he was there. And decided it needed to also be a movie.
