I love Cake

My favorite slice of Cake:

Cake also has a new album out and is on tour. Just about every band I really like has/is/will be releasing an album this year. If Camper Van Beethoven and The Pixies release an album, this year will officially be the best year ever for music. Oh shit, David Lowery DID release an album. Get to work, Pixies!

Apparently some naughty person leaked the clean version of the Beastie Boys' new album.

To combat this heinous act, the Beasties are streaming the filthy dirty nasty version of the album.

Fight for yer rights, peeps.

Weird Al has a new album coming out

Ignore the Gaga brouhaha, that's just viral marketing. I'm posting this video aren't I? See, Weird Al just got free advertising right here to maybe two or three people! PURE GENIUS

In other news how the smeg did I miss this??? That may be the second greatest song about Charles Nelson Reilley ever.

Mighty nice of Ed, Colin, Jonny, Philip & Thom.

Suck it, Adolf.

I don't like Vampire Weekend anymore

Well, it's not like I really liked them before, I was pretty neutral about them actually. I was surprised when I heard one of their songs used in a Target commercial and thought that was kind of cool, but didn't have an opinion either way.

Then I heard this:

Sorry guys, you may be the finest indie-rock band named after a calendar monster but you don't fuck with Ruby.

This on the other hand is perfectly acceptable.

And Fergus. Or vice versa. Whatever. When I heard this song on the radio I was all "Zappa on the radio, WTF?"

But it's NOT Zappa. It's Fergus. And Geronimo. On the radio. Well, college radio. Which is the best radio.

Kiwi skaters are insane

Skateboarding in Christchurch after the earthquake with Radiohead accompaniment.

Falling into a gaping crack in the earth after a quake is one of my personal irrational phobias, so this might be the first time I've ever cheered on the police for hassling kids on skateboards.

Happy Birthday

REM. First gig played on April 5, 1980 in Athens. Here's a little ditty from their first EP, Chronic Town.

That blue gargoyle brings back some great memories of Athens.

When I think of Punk

I think of Stiff Little Fingers.

This is so punk, I'm probably on a list somewhere now.

a list of loser posers

I apologize

Yesterday's video was a little disturbing. A Rebecca Black remix? Yeah, I went too far there. Here's something nice to make up for it.
