Writing About Big Country While In A Small Country

This Japanese medical drama I’m watching is hella intense. I think the star dude has to make a decision about which patient to save with the limited time and resources he has available. Of course, with the amount of time the dude is being all emo about it he could probably save them both ten times over, but hey where’s the drama in that?

Oh yeah, by the way I’m totally in Japan now! Woot! It’s crazy! I got my apartment and my immigration papers in order. Tomorrow I start processing at my new job! So much change in so little time! It’s like woah.

As I said before, I’m going to be way too busy to rip and write about newly discovered music, so here’s the first in what will probably be a long series of “best of” posts. In many cases the songs will be re-recorded and will sound better than the original versions I put up months or even years ago. So if even if you have downloaded the songs in these posts, I suggest downloading them again because they might sound better!

That being said, I’m pretty sure almost all of these tracks are just re-uploads of original rips that sounded fine in the first place.

Seriously, this Japanese medical show is intense. Dude did a tracheotomy on someone with a pair of diaper pins. That shit was hardcore.

These aren’t all the Big Country tracks I’ve posted over the years but they are A: my favorites and B: the ones that didn’t’ sound like total garbage. My plan was to re-record all of my Big Country tracks, but I just go so swamped with bullshit in the last few weeks before I headed out that I got swamped and couldn’t get it done. Sad, but not as sad as the fact that I couldn’t re-record ANY of my Erasure tracks – a real tragedy since most of those sound like steaming shit.

Okay, now  I just saw a commercial where a woman made a bento box of a walrus.

Japanese TV is really distracting.

Anyways, thanks to everyone who has wished me luck in this crazy journey! It really meant a lot to me. Enjoy the tunes, and expect more greatest hits from my archives sometime soon.

I also haven’t forgotten about Mostly-Retro, expect a new post there sometime next week as well.
