Things That Rule

Charlotte Gainsborug's 5:55- A delightful album of arrangements by Air, lyrics by Jarvis Cocker and the vocal efforts of Charlotte Gainsbourg (The Science of Sleep.) The song "Tel que tu es" sounds like a song from Final Fantasy games as does the one piano bridge of "Little Monsters", "Everything I Cannot See" has one of the most gorgeous piano lines and "AF607105" is a delightful tune with goofy lyrics and the most Air sounding track on the disc. A full review to come on although this album was released in April.

Weeds: Season 2- Holy shit was this the goods. Martin Donovan is delightfully creepy, Mary Louise Parker may be a horrible mother, but you can't but feel for her, the list could go on and on. The show ends in a ridic cliffhanger, but thank GOD season 3 starts in two weeks! So Good!

Guitar Hero: Rock's the 80's- Mainly for Limozeen, Extreme, Dio and Ratt. But overall, a good halfway point to what will rule in Guitar Hero 3.

The band Romeo Void- So much 80's New Wave with jaunty guitars and sexy Sax. "Never Say Never" is an addictingly catchy song, but the rest of their stuff is just as awesome.

And that's all the stuff I am obsessing over right now.

A Period of Transition

Mixing it up again. I feel retarded that I even have this blog still. I never sometimes right stuff that has some purpose. The end might be near for this little outlet. Mainly because without a computer, it's hard for me to update. And because I don't have anything of interest to write. The only thing I can think of that I want to share is my Onion Headline I just thought of:
Bush's Colonoscopy Determines President is 'Still an Asshole'

I will probably keep this bad boy, but it won't be very often that I will post anything. Maybe just the usual bitch and moan no one will read.

I Feel Like Going Home

Today is going to be long, slow, boring and sucky.

Last night, however, was fucking awesome. After a shitty, hectic day at the Towers filled with stupid mistakes that were my fault and a few tours that seemed mostly lukewarm in leasing possibilities, I rocked some sweet bar action with some of my favorite people. Sarah Deal and Joe Papa Giorgio were celebrating another year of being alive at the Bayou and Sapphire in the good old Yunk. I'm feeling the effects of rahter inexpensive Tanqueray and Tonics this morning. Regardless, hanging out with the Deal, Tara, Val and a sweet surprise visit from Ray, Kel and Flanny was te perfect cap to make what seemed to look like a crappy Saturday actually a lot of fun.

Things that make me happy as of late:
The Deftones cover of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy"
Radiohead on shuffle
Friends who live nearby
Dinosaur Jr.'s new album Beyond
I'll Sleep When I'm Dead: The Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon
Drum Machines
David Bowie's cover of the Pixies "Cactus"

Things that make me not so happy:
Sleepless nights

The Hour Grows Late

It is coming. More like she is coming. Yes indeed, this weekend marks the date that the lovely, glorious and most wonderful woman I have ever met, Tara Fleck, moves in four blocks away. I'm not sure the city of Philadelphia is prepared for the amounts of Carnage that will ensue due to her coming. This will mark the first time in my life that I have readily available amounts of Fleck right down the street. This could be the most revolutionary thing to happen to my life since, well, since the Sexional.

It's tough living alone yet thanks to the good will of the luck of the draw, moving to West Philly has given me readily available awesomeness possible. Elise Lavender, George Giles and now Tara Fleck, The Real Deal and Judi Bad News right here. Walking distance. Once I get a bike, then the Drew's will be reinjected into my face and once Season 2 of Weeds is out on DVD, I will make it my bizznizz to make it to Lazor's for Season 3 action at his pad with the lovely Michelle.

It's a great city, Philadelphia. My first few months as a resident have been pretty good. But now that more people are around, and people that I love and trust, it's mutha fuckin' on.

In other news, I haunched on Resident Evil 4 for Wii and MY GOD if it isn't ever so fun to slay Zombie European Freaks on the Wii. It really is a revolutionary gaming console and should have been named "The Revolution" like it originally was going to be. Regardless, I can't wait for Kart, Smash and the other Mario game. Also, my reservations are in for both GH Rocks the 80's and GH3 all for PS2 though. The Kramer guitar will be mine!

Tonight I will see Live Free or Die Hard.
This is the goods.
