hm. so the Butch Walker Leavin' The Game On Luckie St
live dvd went up for presale today and I bought it. Man, HOW DO PEOPLE BUY SHIT ON THE INTERNET? I am sitting here and going, "I have spent the money! GIVE ME MY DVD NOW!" and no matter how much I make grabby hands, the dvd does not magically appear so I can watch it and giggle. This is a TRAGEDY to me.
every time I hear this song, I think of cidercupcakes
. Butch Walker covering "Born to Run": http://www.filesend.net/download.php?f=1ebca2c9240c22ba05e8f64cb568ce06
I also purchased his EP Cover Me Badd
which, a) ahahahaha title, and b) has him doing songs like "Since U Been Gone" and "Live and Let Die" and "Always Something There To Remind Me." Which is awesome. So, yay for that. If uploading it didn't require burning it to cd and reripping it to get the DRM off, I totally would upload it, but I am lazy.
I am also kind of amused that Flogging Molly's new single is getting pretty heavy airplay on KROQ.
Muse's myspace (http://www.myspace.com/muse
) has tracks from HAARP up, including live KoC and their cover of "Feeling Good." My favorite recording of that is still live at Montreux or the one where you cannot hear the band but you can hear the incredibly drunk audience singing along happily. Awww.
I am still debating the Mac vs PC question. On the one hand, I can buy a 24 inch iMac or a PC with a 30 inch monitor and tv tuner. My lust for the 30 inch monitor (and my complete resistance to change) is overcoming my abhorrence and absolute disdain for Vista. Also, I'm not gonna lie, my ipod's inexplicable refusal to play video is not filling me with confidence in the Apple product line.
ooh, KoC, must headbang.
Also, I am REALLY excited about the new Hush Sound album. I've been listening to Like Vines
a lot recently and I like the two tracks from the new album on their myspace (http://www.myspace.com/thehushsound
). Greta's voice has matured like crazy. Which, I guess, happens when you go from being an infant to almost legal! So! I share!
So, anyway, I totally said I'd upload Silversun Pickups
, didn't I? I did. So here, have some. They are an LA local band (from Silverlake, for those playing at home); for the longest time I thought the lead singer was a girl (I was half right. The main singer/lead guitar = boy, bassist and co-vocalist = girl) because I honestly couldn't tell from the voice; they are a band that grows on you -- or at least, they totally grew on me; and I still fail at the Smashing Pumpkins comparisons because what? Seriously? I mean, apparently they are sort of coming out of the same shoegaze/dreampop place, but I dunno. I like them, is the point. Of the two albums, Carnavas
rocks a little harder and Pikul
is a lot more dreamy, but they are both good.
- 2005 (EP)
"Well Thought Out Twinkles"http://www.sendspace.com/file/zxebym
"Future Foe Scenarios"http://www.sendspace.com/file/emha4u
Ooh, ooh, and apropos of NOTHING IN THIS POST, the part were Matt Cortez is apparently older than me makes him INFINITELY HOTTER.
I'm still undecided on how I feel about Puscifer's V is for Vagina
. I do like Rev 22:20 (esp. the dry martini mix) and a couple of the other tracks, but for the most part I just kind of went, "Huh" and haven't listened to it again. IDEK.
OTOH, the listenthrough of the full Alkaline Trio (they're gonna be at bamboozle left! yay!) discography is going well. A+++. And I'm really enjoying Charlotte Sometimes too.
