I kinda get the feeling that, at some point this year, McP turned to the bottle to escape the horrible memories of teaching. he stared into the void too long.

Drinking to escape is childish. I drink alone, at work, and in the car. Like an adult.

Honestly, though, it's not about being productive. That's not the only alternative available. It's just that this band's catalog leans incredibly heavy on the side of running away all the goddamn time. Not that Ed doesn't try to inject something else, from time to time, but even then he can't seem to help undercutting it. She will RISE ABOVE (in nonspecific ways the shades immediately go down why did she even bother)

as a recurring theme in their work, it seems to work out much better for them than trying to put some fixin' on it!

I'm leaning how to do mash-ups and am looking for either an acapella or an instrumental version of "Life Wasted" for a mash-up with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" (I'm calling it "Call Me Wasted". Or "Life Maybe". I dunno, gotta think about it). Does anybody have one I can use?

I used to do this quite a bit, using acapellas which were floating around Napster. It might be possible you can get to what you're looking for by searching for it "+ acapella". Jepsen is far more likely than PJ, I reckon, but you already knew that.

I posted an old article on the pit for a thread regarding outtakes.....

I saved this article back in 09-2005...interesting read... ;)


Quote:
Pearl Jam to "Blow the Amps"


Seattle rockers Pearl Jam have finished recording their currently untitled new album. They completed the extensive recording process just last week in Seattle.

Guitarist Stone Gossard believes that the unusually long recording effort will be understood when the public hears the album. "This is the best music, as a collective, that we have written... probably ever", says Gossard. He says that "while we have experimented and extended ourselves once again, the simplicity and edge of our writing this time can be heard - these songs are all ones we are very proud of".

While a lot of the album is "as heavy and bone-crunching as our earlier material", Gossard is most proud of the melodic songs such as "Dawn" - written over 4 months by co-guitarist Mike McCready - and the Who-like "Alarms Of Nautical", by Gossard himself.

"We are always expected to have a heavy tilt in our songs, and we have done that here and love doing that. But this album feels more than a bunch of rock songs like our last couple... and not to demean those... but this was a massive ride for us, a big jump, and we hope it can be heard".

The first song, "To Our Home", is a quiet song by lead singer Eddie Vedder, unmistakeably about his new baby girl. "Yeah we let Ed indulge on that one a bit there, but it is a fantastic, pretty track to start off. After that we blow the amps (laughs)".

The track listing is as follows:

01. To Our Home (Vedder)
02. Marker (Gossard/Vedder)
03. Dawn (McCready)
04. Crapshoot Rapture (Gossard/McCready/Ament)
05. Worldwide Suicide (Gossard/McCready)
06. Severed Hand (Vedder)
07. Echoes (Vedder/Gossard/McCready/Ament/Cameron)
08. Cold Concession (Cameron)
09. Alarms Of Nautical (Gossard)
10. The Streets (Vedder)
11. Of The Earth (Vedder/Gossard/McCready/Ament/Cameron)

The first single (to be released in November) will be "Echoes" with the non-album B-Sides "Thank You" and "I Believe In Miracles Live 9/1/05". The band, currently on tour in Canada, will visit Latin America in November before releasing the album in early December. Although no certain dates have been made, manager Kelly Curtis has confirmed a possible 2006 tour of Australia and New Zealand, followed by a full-scale visit to Europe.

Wasn't that article complete fiction?

I might be wrong, but I think that was the case.

From what I remember, the band had dropped a few song titles and descriptions in interviews already (eg. that interview from 2004 with Jeff where he talked about a new Peter Gabriel/Sleater-Kinney/The Who influenced song titled Of the Earth) and they'd already played Crapshoot Rapture live in early 2005 (which was later retitled Comatose). I think the "To our Home" stuff was influenced by Ed's outro of Not For You from the 2005 Gorge show which had those lyrics and that kind of vibe.

The rest of it is pretty easy to make guesses about - I'll go out on a limb and say I predict tours of Australia and Europe once the next album comes out too! You could make a similar article now from the little bits and pieces of info they've already spoken about (ie. it's "experimental", Mike's holding up of a Kraftwerk album to the camera during a photo from the sessions, etc.)
