i don't know where i took this though according to the metadata i apparently took it in january 24th 2010 at 3:19am. hmmmmm. yeah not jogging my memory on exactly what i was doing. despite it being out of focus, i still enjoy it, probably cuz i'm a fat kid and a huge slut for cupcakes. that's gotta be it. hahaha
sometimes, a good day is just laying low and hanging with your kitties and having a netflix marathon. hahaha. oh and ordering a yummy chef salad from my fav awesome pizza parlor, aj's pizza in butler nj. yes, i am going to take a few seconds to blog about food which i never do and usually scoff at, tho i will not post picture of said salad once it has arrived at my house. hahaha. but yeah, this place has really good food and deliver like super fast, even on really busy nights. so yeah. there is my food section of this blog and a plug for a local business. yep. so i got a lot of randomness below, check it!
-----so kim deal left the pixies. i really wasn't surprised to hear that at all, rather more surprised that she did it now and seemingly so randomly. and also now cuz her and frank black/black francis have hated each other for years, why didn't she leave back in the early 90s? not that i wanted her to leave but...i feel like her full talents were never given a chance to shine in the pixies and i was always really glad she chose to do the breeders and her lesser known 1995 project the amps who released one record, pacer. i mean, who really knows what went on recently and what prompted her to go now. maybe it was the re-union of the "classic" lineup of the breeders and their tour to support the anniversary of last splash? or maybe her and BF had some tensions recently and just finally couldn't take each other anymore. don't get me wrong, i do like the pixies, but will always be a fan of the breeders first and foremost. i won't go into detail, but i'm not much a fan of mr. black overall. he kind of rubs me the wrong way. but yeah, i mean i don't know the guy personally or anything so whatevs. i do wish i could have seen the pixies play with her but i guess that won't be happening now. i def want to see the breeders again the first chance i can cuz they were friggen amazing when i saw them last month. i'm hoping that this whole split means there is going to be more new breeders material coming down the pike, cuz that is one thing i've never liked about them, the slow pace at which albums come out. you'd figure in twenty plus years they would have produced more than what they have...but yeah we shall see what happens.
-----man, some people on fb, i wish i could like slap them in the face in real life. like there is this one chick i'm friends with who posts several times a day and 99% of the time her shit is just her complaining how bad her life is or how some guy broke up with her or how she has no friends to hang out with and blah, blah, blah. there never seems to be anything positive...guess maybe that is why guys keep dumping her? haha. but i mean, i get it, we all get bitchy from time to time and post about stuff that is bothering us [tho i tend to reserve that for physical ailments like last week with my wisdom tooth and try to avoid emotional status updates] but does it have to be several times a day, every day? i wanna like inbox this chick and tell her to STFU but...i guess i'll just be nice and block her instead. hahahaha.
-----when i was in philly this past weekend i hit up repo records and walked away with a nice bounty. i don't do a lot of record shopping anymore cuz, as you fools know, i am the reigning digital music queen at this point, but i did pick up a few goodies. my loot included a warpaint poster [which i wasn't technically supposed to remove from the wall and hide in my friends bag, but shhh don't tell anyone] a pair of tristeza 7inches, a milemarker 7inch, another random 7inch that was only $2 and had interesting cover art, and two dorky presidential speech records all for under $20. i will say they have good prices in that joint and a really good amount of treats in there considering it's a pretty small space. i took a trip into the basement and they have tons of random vinyl down there for super cheap. next time i go back, i'm gonna take a trip down there and see what i can unearth...as well as see if i can make off with the sebadoh bakesale poster. oh wait did i just say that? hahahaha. i do have one gripe and that is, i hate how they put the price stickers directly on the cover of the records and not on the poly sleeves cuz it leaves residue and that sucks [and in the case of the milemarker slab, it didn't fully come off. ugh!] i know they do it to prevent shrinkage and people walking off with stuff or ticket switching but a thief is a thief and they are gonna swipe shit no matter where the price sticker is stuck so be nice to the collectors and don't eff up their record covers!!!
-----hey! just getting the link to the sebadoh site i found out they have a new album of all new material coming out in september! yay! first time in fourteen years they have new stuff coming out. it's called defend yourself and i can't wait to get my ears on that shit yo. and i missed a new EP by them too? damn i need to keep more up to date on shit! i blame not having my laptop for five weeks.
-----scope LeftyFretz a site i recently discovered that is devoted to lefty guitarists. it features up to date info on new gear and who has what in lefty. pretty cool shit. i'm going to look deeper into some of the companies they feature to see if i wanna give em a shout too! afterall, you haven't made it until you're mentioned on hoosatron.com! hahahahahahahahaha. now if only there was a site or even a forum for lefty drummers! i'll put that on my list of things to do. haha.
-----i just ordered a new copy of the secret diary of laura palmer which is a companion to the show twin peaks of course. i can't find my old copy tho actually i think i loaned it to someone at my old job and never got it back. it is a pretty rad book and gives a lot more depth and insight into the character and her motivations, that you never would have gotten from the show alone considering she's already dead when the show starts. and heck i got a good deal on it! less than $6! can't beat that shit.
-----i just found out that this chick i was with like forever ago still has the cat she had when i was with her [which was like thirteen years ago] the cat is now seventeen and is said to be still feisty and in good health. awww! i hope my babies all live to be to very, very old little bundles of purry joy and are way older than seventeen when they finally have to leave me.
-----it has just occurred to me that i have yet to hear or DL the new daft punk record cuz it came out when i didn't have my laptop back yet and i'm still getting caught up on shit to DL. i'm gonna get on that schniz right away yo.
