Made these old school video game jams at the same time as Threshold 8-bit. No one will ever hear them if I don't give 'em away. Miss you guys, I only go on the internet for maybe an hour every couple days or so but I am as you are very glad that Beck is doing lots of stuff again.

I waited 12 hours in the cold streets of NYC for standby tickets, and managed to get into the rehearsal show! Below are my thoughts about Beck's performance!
They opened with Blue Moon, which sounded really cool live (and I finally figured out how they do the chorus. First I thought it was just 'ooooo', then after we learned it was 'blue moon' I thought he sang 'blue moooOOooOOn', but now I realized it's 'blue, blue moon').
Roger was rocking the keys for the 'beepy' part at the end. I was sitting pretty much as far from the stage as possible but I could see Beck, JMJ, and Smokey from where I was, and had to look to the TV to see the rest of the band. Also, minor note, Beck was NOT wearing his hat during the rehearsal Blue Moon.
During the next few sketches, they rolled away the drum kit and I got confused, "I thought Beck would do another song?" but then I saw them wheeling in the music stands I started getting excited... and sure enough, when Jim Parsons announced Beck again... Wave began. It was amazing on so many levels... the lighting/filming of Beck and positioning of the orchestra.. it was terrifying. Dark. He looked like Dracula or something.
Wave is a very weird choice to play live on national television. So much music these days lacks pain or anger. Even Nine Inch Nails doesn't have much pain in his music anymore. Cynical, dark, yes.. but the days of "Hurt" are over (which is great for Trent). So for Beck to come onto the national stage and play a song so dark, and so full of pain, and so different from what's 'mainstream' these days... it was just really powerful.
What really drove this point home was after he played, and the applause lights went off, the audience (besides me) went dead silent. someone behind me whispered to her friend, 'how is that even music?' or something to that effect... it was really a subversive and kind of rebellious song to play, even though I'm sure that wasn't the intention, he was just being himself!

Need some help though! Does anyone in LA have a cassette deck we can use to digitalize? I know someone who can digitalize, we just need a cassette deck that won't eat the tape.
UPDATE: a tape deck has been found. hopefully will do this next week.

Obviously it'll be Golden Feelings and Stereopathetic Soulmanure so that you can hear an extra thirty-seven layers of cassette tape static that don't exist in the originals because of the evil compression.
Did you know there was actually four hobos singing "No Money No Honey?" The other three were two blocks away and weren't singing properly, but NOW YOU CAN HEAR THEM PERFECTLY!

Just registered and wanted to say hello. I wasn't sure where this should be posted...
Anyway... Hello from the UK. In love with Beck since Odelay . Odelay, Mutations, Sea Change and Guero are my favourite albums of his (though it is difficult to choose!). And now I can add Mornig Phase to my favourites. Beautiful beautiful album!
Any news on a UK tour? I see he's over here in September for a couple of festivals, but I really would like to see him at his own gig.

a bonus flexi disc by the band Slug, from their Out Sound album.
but maybe it is not a sample of that... but rather that dog. doing an impression? Using audio editing, I can't get the sound clips to match perfectly, in either pitch or speed.
