Been bumping this record album since Tuesday. Dark, chilling rock that needs to be listened to. No slump here. Danger Mouse, producer, made sure of that. Will probably rank high on our 2013 Best of List. Enjoy this record for the next seven days and get lost in yourself. You’ll be happy you did.
How do you follow up a burning car? You play with religious iconography, of course! This is the music video for Vamp Weekend’s ‘Modern Vamp…’ single — Diane Young. Cause it’s right on time…

It’s crazy how many times I heard this track since Friday evening. Counted them. 6. Four times alone on Saturday in Pasadena. I’m not complaining. Had buried itself deep in my head during that lively showcase. For CHVRCHES met the hype. I’ll write more about them and the pictures later. Overall, understandable why they are blowing up right now. Got a bit of love from the Flickr fan, but nothing like the responses from our Make Music Pasadena set. Expected YACHT to be more helpful, but obviously they didn’t like them? Who knows? Why twitter peeps follow/unfollow / favorite / retweet so inconsistently leaves a bad taste. Flawed system that shouldn’t be dwell on. MMP was fun. Lots of unexpected gems, but the lack of major talent didn’t give it the big push it needed. Tanlines, YACHT, and Youngblood Hawke were the most blogged about artists from what I read.
Can rant about a few non-musical things in this second paragraph: Matt Smith leaving Dr. Who, Game of Thrones’ Red Wedding, Megan Draper’s Murder Theories, finally completing Arrested Development Season 4, or how amazing Before Midnight was. For if you like films that have characters locked in a room talking about their characters as much as I do, then it is the film for you. There are some really amazing moments– the car ride long shot scene, the dinner scene, or the hotel room. I left the film contemplating my own life & relationships as what it meant to be love & settling. Been ages since a film challenged me so. Plus, I’m Jesse. No matter how hard I fight it. Lost my Celine many moons ago & for good reason. Will tell you it was her birthday this weekend. Remembered that…and she remembered mine back in January. Which always makes me happy. (Side note: Never ask a lot from my friends, I give so much 364 days a year…all I want is the respect of remembering my one special day. If you can do that, you’re in. If you fail or choose not to, don’t expect much from me. Mutual respect. What drives me. )
But yeah, spent most of Sunday thinking of her. Where she was at that moment. Who she was with. I missed my chance to see her two years ago. Probably she is still enraged at me for not making the time. I’m okay with it. For it over thought all the things I’ve done wrote in my past relationships I’d be half the man. Really don’t care, again, none of them were entirely my fault. Am I denial? No…sorry.
Great food for thought film experience as you can tell. Here is ‘The Mother We Share’ by the very hot & buzzworthy CHVRCHES.
‘Native‘ never really connected with me despite the fact that I really liked it & sounded great in the car. For “Counting Stars” is catchy & soulful. The music video channels it into a religious experience. Kick your feet. You’ll feel alive by the end.
(iPod Picture Coming, Cinemagram was down. Imagine something rushed / glitchy)
How adorable. No one can resist a cute kitten GIF. And yes, if this post breaks records then expect a continuation the cute pet trend. I’ve never been focused on hits or ads, but…as the saying goes, “Give The People What They Want”. And that might be cute kittens. That sentence didn’t really go anywhere. Now I’m here apologizing to myself for such bizarre words. Unfortunate.
Not my favorite Cage The Elephant…or is Foster The People…maybe Young The Giant…no, Cage The Elephant. Those three bands popped onto the scene at the same time a few years back and I always got confused which ‘one hit’ I was hearing on the radio. Pumped Up Kicks, Cough Syrup, Shake Me Down…can you connect the right song to the correct band? I can, but if you would’ve asked back then probably would’ve responded with a blank stare & a deep thought. ”Always Something” was the last single to be released from ‘Thank You, Happy Birthday”. Still not sure why the album was titled such. Funny words maybe? Much rather listen to Young The Giant.
Kings won. Now all the Blackhawks have to do is beat the Red Wings. Regardless of who wins, my coworkers & I are gonna try to go to game three or four at Staples. Bigger deal if the Blackhawks win because most are from Chicago. However, have a handful of friends from Detroit. So, I’m conflicted. Just want a good game. Typical non-fan thing to say. Kings are gonna win anyway. That’s what a loyal fan speaks.
We got one more Showcase on Friday and Saturday I’m road tripping. Looking forward to it. Until then I’ll be trying to put down what I do & five years of work down on paper. Lot harder than it sounds. For there is always something…
Your favorite Chiptune band — Anamanaguchi – released their ‘fooly cooly’ like music video for Endless Fantasy, the title track from their kickstarter supported 2013 record, over the holiday weekend & I absolutely love it. Now that is one lucky pizza slice.
We’re back at it again after a fun, eventful, holiday weekend. Wasn’t called in. Allowing me to spread my a wings a bit while giving me time to write all the highlights since March. Kind of rushed through it, but happy that it’s behind me. Should take it a bit more seriously. As with most things. Not tongue & cheek.
Today marks the start of ‘Selfish Summer’. Pretty much self explanatory. Got the word from my fam that I can start focusing on me & all the things I want in life. No more excuses. Don’t want to turn 30 in this current state. Just work…slight work. Got three months to better myself or stay stuck in this deadend. My teeth are sharp & ready to step into the spotlight as Bizzaro J. Bout damn time. #slightwork Just gotta watch out for the bird…
This song is okay. Digged ‘Hideaway’, pity this is not one of my favorite tracks from the record.
