Dig this song. Not my favorite from the near perfect ‘Suburbs’. The sum of all the parts do make this a amazing.
Ugh. So tired. Was out super late with the comic book team. Chatting about nerdy stuff. Picked up my pull list at House of Secrets, so that will keep me entertained for a week or so. The TMNT city fall saga is the one I’m looking forward to. Did read Superior Spider-man #10. The issue marked the return of the Green Goblin in a very cartoonish / baddie henchman kind of way.
No break. Wing Night. Special event. Another late night. My life has been quite crazy. Nice change of pace. Stories to follow. And if you need a quick song, go check out our Tumblr! Been spending a bunch of time there. Not sure what the future will hold for GN. Maybe just a concert review site as I originally wished it to be? Who knows? Here is some music…
Dark bluesy rock, things on fire, and shirtless woman? That’s Jame N Commons in a nutshell. You’re riding on the dark side baby. My standout artist from SXSW revealed his new video for the title track from his current ‘Rumble & Sway – EP‘ last week. Belated shameless plug needed.
Go 2 Itunes To Listen!
So, listen. All those indie bloggers have just splooshed a bit in their pants. Why? Because Itunes is streaming Vampire Weekend’s third album…in full…right now. This record is a evolution for the band. They take a few more chances. Music fans should be excited.
Enjoy Modern Vampires of the City…out next Tuesday.

Hard to deny The Tallest Man on Earth in the morning bump. The Wild Hunt‘s tracks do well at the early morning hours. The ‘wee hours’ how I refer to them. 6am shadows where brewed java fills the room. Tingling those sensitive nostrils. Maybe producing a smile with teeth. Songs like this makes me feel good. They really do. That’s why Tallest Man continues to be featured. Instead of the studio track, which is amazing in it’s own right, below is Tallest Man’s acoustic performance from KCRW. There isn’t much lost in translation. Equals the studio version. Probably surpasses it. I’ll let you decide.
On the way in I listened to ‘To Be Loved’ all the way through and it almost made me fall asleep. Mellow, overly loving record. I’m at that point where either it will become one of my favorite records of the year or be lost and forgotten in the Car’s CD Island. I’m leaning to the latter. Part of me, when I listen to a Michael Buble album, always compares it to that lasting experience when I first heard ‘It’s Time’ back in college. ”Why can’t [To Be Loved] be that good”, I repeat to myself. 2005. Wow. Incredible how unperishing that album was to me. Subject matter on the new LP is weak. Really disappointed by it all.
Buble should just join up with Disney & make that dream record already. ”Buble sings Disney’s Classics”…not a far-fetched concept after hearing his Randy Newman cover. Will see the light of day sooner than later.
Here’s a Swedish ballad from a modern day Bob Dylan.
A little paint on paint fan service for you music lovers. As fast as it came into my life, made an impression, then fell to the wayside — Gotye & Kimbra’s Iconic Somebody That I Used to Know is just one of those records that I keep on no matter how sick I am of it. It’s a quick 3 minutes. Pleasurable. Plus, really dig that xylophone. *Dink*
Fitting too seeing how I’ve come in contact with two of my past coworkers in the past few days. Yesterday’s wing night was a trip!
I survived The Killers. Made it in without any complicated camera issues. They let me right in. Got a decent spot & shots including some gems that took my breath away. The guy in front of me…as high as I imagined he was…kept pumping his fist up & down during every standout track. Got annoying. Then, I used it to my advantage. Absolutely love shadowy framed shots. Non-complicated concert photos are great and all, but the more artistic quality makes me smile more. The collections features a bit of both.
Memorial Sports Arena in hardcore, ghetto, Los Angeles was a venue I frequented countless times in my basketball youth. Saw the old crappy pre-blake era clippers battle hardwood legends like Michael Jordan. Stood on the same floor. Walked the cold dark halls where I’m sure legendary ghosts still resides. Geeked out a bit.
The only goal is to survive the morning. If I can make it to 10am…then I’m home free. The soda by my side will assure that. Got big plans tomorrow & Sunday. But on the fifth day, Justin rested. Should be fun. Killers pictures will be up tonight with the megapost & write-ups dropping soon after. Have an amazing weekend y’all.
Check out the new buzzworthy band that I’m listening to at this moment. The band describes themselves as ‘eclectic indie folk rock with an alternative edge’. Don’t cha agree?

Another amazing video from Of Monsters and Men. This was one my favorite songs of 2012 and the video for it is just as stunning. Combining their northern mythology with CG & haunting beats makes this a must watch. Pick up this record.

Love this song. Loved Panic!’s debut album. As many times my buddy played it, this was teh track that i kept running back to. Didn’t come to this morning conclusion easy. I typed into google, “best songs for when your sick” and came a across a comment that mentioned ’9 in the afternoon’. Then followed this inquiry back to youtube and went through the video archive. Now we’re here. Quite random, I know. Helps when you’re drug induced praying the unseen warriors makes short work of this evil inside my throat. Not a 100%. More like 45%. Look fine. You couldn’t tell there was anything wrong with me. Maybe the eyes. They are groggy. Not really new. See myself as a sleepwalker. Or the paced cleaning of mucus in my throat. Coughs are never a good sign.
Usually get sick before my birthday. Normal. The lack of energy / adrenaline that builds throughout the GG period downgrades my body by the end of this 13 day cycle. Knowing that a lazy weekend lies only 3 days ahead puts a smile on my face. Well deserved. Got so much I want to do that being bed stricken isn’t on the agenda. Where’s my cold slaying axe? Probably under my bed somewhere. By the mystical portal to Valhalla Keeping my mind on present & repeating…”I’m fine”. Because really I’m fine. *coughs* (ugh)
Didn’t do much last night. Fell asleep early. Still got heaps of TV on the TiVo. Really curious what this animated GIF is about.
Haha. Oh Happy Endings. My dinner delight.
We got music. (hopefully) A new, long awaited, album of the week. Maybe some new music / videos to showcase? Who knows. This is the first thing I do before looking through my news feed. No spoilers. Happy Humpday. Pray you’ll get to hump.
I have a meeting with the Boss man in an less than an hour. What it is regarding…I don’t know what…but hopefully good news. If it’s bad this might be my last ‘Bored 4 Music’ type post for awhile. Who knows? The Killers are kicking out more music videos tag teaming with acclaimed film director Tim Burton and sober-non thieving-romantic Winona Ryder. This is ‘Here with Me’.

Like Dave Matthews, when Matchbox Twenty returned to the scene with North this year I was…to put it bluntly…overjoyed. I played ‘She’s So Mean’ throughout the entire work day via AOL’s first listen. Totally channeled how I felt at that past moment. made sense how much I missed them. Sure, North isn’t the majorities best or favorite record of 2012 yet as music fans you should know what speaks to you and this record spoke to me. Still does. This band will always be apart of my life and happy I’m starting this next phase with something so sweet.
Now I gonna find the woman who represents “Overjoyed”.
- “She’s So Mean”
- “English Town”
- “Our Song”
- “Put Your Hands Up”
