-10 great female fronted punk bands you should know according to flavorwire. screaming females were up first and i totally agree with that selection. i saw them last week at their record release show and it was killer. man can that girl shred! my old band played with them years back and they've only gotten better in time. anyhoo i liked how the article gave a video of each band so you can get a feel for their sound. smart thinking yo! (hey wait! no violet hour on the list??!??! hahahaha)
-speaking of VH, if you follow that link our official website is now functional. it still doesnt have all that much on it, but julie is working on it and getting it up to par. we also did an interview with geoffrey ross that should hopefully be up soon. when it is i'll blast it out on here.
-job hunting sucks
-listening to a little minotaur shock as i prepare this entry. yep.
-imitation crab meat is like crack. its not really any good but you just keep wanting more. true story.
-i stayed up all night a few days ago for the first time since i stopped working and man it totally threw me off. my overnight days are done with!

shearwater whipping boy

dreamend magnesium light

[these songs are two of my all time fav songs and also two of my favs with banjo. banjo can be hit or miss for me but these songs really nail it for me, "whipping boy" especially. take a listen and see what i mean]

-download the 20 best madonna covers over at stereogum.
-its girl scout cookie time again. and it never fails that they always stick the littlest and cutest one out front to ask you if you want to buy any cookies. i'm powerless against them! poweeeeerrrrrrlessssss!!!!
-listening to a little warpaint and best coast loving it a lot. i think its time to make some mix cds for people.
-a new special limited edition hoos sticker is about to go to the printer. hell yes!

tones on tail-[post bauhaus pre love and rockets. this is prob their most well known song, but i was only recently introduced to TOT by my friend eric. i've always liked bauhaus but i never really explored their other projects post bauhaus, even peter murphy. i'm sorry i didn't look into this shit sooner cuz they were really good.]
