Is anyone else a Filter fan; can I get a show hands?



So just for fun,

who is a fan of the band "Filter" who put out radio hits such as

"Take my Picture."

"Where do we go from here?"

and "Hey Man, Nice Shot."


and much more of course.

So speak your minds on the band.

QATFYG:
Do you like other bands of this genre?


Where do we go from here?

  1. "Hey Man, Nice Shot," "Jurassitol," and their cover of "One" were all great.

  2. good stuff,

    on my radio stations down here in West Virginia "Hey Man, Nice Shot" got crazy radio play during the 2000's.
    I heard the song was about Bud Dwyer's televised suicide, and after watching the video of it, it makes the song feel so alive (ironically for Bud.)

  3. That's messed up. First I've heard about it, and I just read the whole Dwyer thing. I choose to believe he was innocent just for the romanticism of it.

  4. well, the truth is probably in the grave.
    :(
    hey man, nice shot was on the short bus album, which is great stuff.
    But once they put out the Amalgamut, it was one of the first times I really the more polished sound from a band,

  6. I've owned a number of copies of Short Bus over the years and I always remembered it as a good album. I played it again a few weeks ago and the lyrics were sort of embarassing on some songs. I've only heard Title of Record and The Amalgamut a few times but the sound is very different. Though I'll admit I was into "Take My Picture" when it came out

  7. "Take my picture" is a really good song, but it is much lighter than the Filter that I normally like it.

    What are some of the examples of embarrassing lyrics ....oh do continue :)

  8. This particular rhyme scheme from "Dose" stands out.

    I hate it when you preach your case / It makes me wanna stick my dick in your face

  10. I like Filter. Did you take journalism ethics with Wilson Al? he was obsessed with that Bud Dwyer thang. wish I could have known you, Bud!

    "Take a Picture" is a great song. what is/are Filter doing anymore? and did they form from NIN or Tool? I always forget.

  11. Richard Patrick was in NIN as a touring guitarist, I believe. And someone else was in Stabbing Westward. I think I read that one of the riffs from, "Hey Man, Nice Shot," maybe, was originally from a SW song.

    An interesting fact: Richard Patrick's brother, Robert Patrick, played the T-1000 in Terminator 2 and was the B-list replacement for David Duchovny after he left the X-Files.

  12. yes,
    you mean Agent Dogget ( i am spelling that wrong.)

    I do feel bad for Robert Patrick, because he is still mainly known for playing the T-1000. He just hasn't made a role that was bigger than that one so long ago.

    @Britt,
    Listening to that dingdong idiot Wilson talk about Bud Dwyer almost ruined the filter song for me. Wilson and I are not on the same page in the info pamphlet that is life.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
