There doesn't appear to be a thread on Beck, so i shall start one! I like Beck a lot and enjoy how he is constantly "reinventing" himself, even if i like some "incarnations" better than others. My favorite is a toss up between Mutuations, with melodic folk/rock music that i love or Midnite Vultures which makes me want to move! (Where's the dancing smiley when you need it! ) Also, i wanted to share my earliest standout memory of Beck, because i found it amusing. It was on MTV back when they played music. This was on 120 Minutes, which was a great show featuring alternative music of the day. This was just after "Loser" had come out. Beck was being interviewed by Matt Pinfield, the host - Matt asked him why he just went by "Beck". Beck's response was to take off a shoe and throw it at the set. It was so random and bizarre that it stuck with me. I honestly didn't think of him much then - i still think Mellow Gold is spotty, so it was a shock (to me) when he followed that with Odelay, which i think is brilliant.
