why won't you just tell me what's goin' on?

I really love this record.
Almost every song is perfect.
I'm tired, hopefully I can find a MASH rerun on before I get to bed.

rock n roll,

with nobody in your bed, the night's hard to get through

Gettin' my emo on and it feels so good. I've really been enjoying this record in all seriousness. I grabbed it when i came out last year based on some reviews and I listened maybe once and didn't come back. I put it on the other day when it was kind of crappy out and it sounded great. Pretty dark lyrically and they do the soft-scream-soft emo thing wonderfully. I hesitate to even throw them in with the rest of the Myspace/scene music because there just seems to be more substance here.

I'll throw up a post on my concert experiences from this past weekend soon.

Tony Starks just won a Oscar y'all

That bird on his wrist is worth more than four of my paychecks.


First track to hit off Ghost's December 4th release, Big Dough Rehab. It features Kid Capri and samples the Rare Earth track. It's as dope as you'd assume. Ghost rips through the jam spitting bars about, you guessed it, celebrating. Celebrating at parties, with women, things of that nature. I'm stoked for this one man, UGK was the only other hip hop release this year I was as excited for and December 4th is bringing Ghost's and the new WU, which is, by all accounts, as grimy as ever.

After the new Ghostface popped up on the internets this morning I put The Pretty Toney album in the car for my ride to and from class. I don't think this release gets as much shine as it deserves. There's basically no filler (minus some of the skits, Ghost loves his skits). Get familiar if you don't have this one.

I'm seeing Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello tomorrow night and Sunday night I'll be basking in the awesomeness that is Bruce Springsteen. Posts to come in a couple of days.

Also, I wonder how Curtis feels about Radiohead outselling him in their first week. I don't even think the announcement of a new G-Unit album can help save his sorry azz.

I ain't disrespeccin' you son

A certain special someone leaked the new Little Brother album. If you got it from Smoking Section you know what I'm talking about (read the tags). I haven't even listened to three songs but I know it will be solid. I just hopped on to post because I think at the end of the first track, Sirens, they sample a convo from Season 4 of The Wire. I could be totally wrong but it sounds like Marlo. I would think I'd have seen some posts about something like that by now so I might be way off.
I'd like to get more in depth on this release and the new Radiohead. Hopefully I'll get around to that before the weekend is gone. Stay classy.

rock n roll,

unhappy anniversary, it's ten years since we met

I've been gone for way too long. I've had school stuff and applying to real college and serious life things like those. I've gotten some new tunes and seen some good movies, along with some good new TV starting up. I'm at no shortage of things to post about and hopefully I'll be getting around to that soon.

Right now I just want to share about a criminally overlooked singer/songwriter. Loudon Wainwright's been doing it for years and he's truly great. His songs range from hillarity to tear jerking all in the scope of an album. He has a large enough catalog that I've had no shortage of hearing things from him that are new to me over the past few weeks. A few months ago I got a greatest hits and liked it well enough, but decided to dig a bit deeper after I bought the Knocked Up special edition and there were some live videos of Wainwright doing his thing. So, besides being one helluva artist he's also an Apatow standby which gets huge points in my book. He was the gynecologist they end up picking who's at the barmitzvah when Heigl goes into labor. He was also in Apatow's series, Undeclared, as a father and was real funny. Check him out.

rock n roll,
