-FRIENDSHIP BRACELET- a music/mp3 blog
-i just friended my baby cousin on facebook. so adorable!
-i've been addicted to arrested development lately. shit is so fucking funny.
-i haven't mentioned balam acab on this shit yet and shame on me. he creates some haunting and profoundly good, super down tempo electro (don't call it witch house) that just floored me the first time i listened to it and pretty much every time since. he only had one ep out at first, but he just made some older stuff available on via links on his facebook that he did pre-BA which was also rather good. he is wrapping up his first full length which i am very excited for. if you know whats good for you, get this shit immediately.
-KOZYNDAN- la based illustration duo
-EFFING DYKES is at it again. love this shit!
-i saw SUPER this past weekend and it was so fucking awesome. i laughed my ass off and especially loved the scene where they go to the gun store and when boltie drives the bolt mobile into some dude commiting "gay ass crime" hahahahaha. and the mere fact that boltie is hyper/nuts and curses like a fucking sailor (and makes fun of midgets) is hysterical shit in its own right. i practically peed my hoosy britches. i can't wait til i can own this gem on dvd. srsly.
-in case any one was wondering, during season 2 of the a-team, mr t. averaged 2 "suckas" and 2 "fools" per episode. no really. i kept track.
-go here for an interview with author/actress, amber benson
-my brother became an ordained minister the other day. steve is also a minister. they preach the church of fucking jackass!!! hahahaha.
the above are pretty self explanatory. haha. both shows were fantastic (except the one opening act for sebadoh, some whiny dude with a piano, i don't even know what his name was, but he was awful) and i'd def go see any of the above artists again. the kaki king show was freaking awesome cuz i was right up front by the stage so i got to see all of the intricate stuff she does while she plays (not that i could ever hope to imitate it!) and also got to chat with her for a minute after the show which was cool (and during the show when she and i were jokingly going back and forth about me having my cell phone on and it sending feedback to her monitor on stage). abandoned lighthouse opened for her and was really friggen good. he had download cards for sale and i snatched one up since i can't be bothered with cd's anymore (so snooty of me!). it was onlt $5 and def worth it. the sebadoh pics are all of lou and jason playing bass cuz i didn't really get any good ones of either of them playing guitar. i was on the bass side of the stage so thats what i got. i was def a great show, but i wish that they had played songs from "bubble and scrape" (they did actually play one, "forced love" which i really like). oh well. perhaps they will tour again and do that album...or maybe even work on new material! that would def be awesome. anyhoo, it was good to see some bands play cuz these days i def don't do it enough. ill have to work on rectifying that for sure.
i did a special bday shuffalump, 31 songs. 30 songs for the year and 1 to grow on! haha. i'll be posting that soon and then the "lost" shuffalump as well. after that, then i'll get back to the themed ones i have planned (the instrumental-lump which was supposed to be next hasn't worked out yet) stay tuned suckaz!
