This is an mp3 blog attempting to document the gross amount of music I listen to. About once a day, I'll post something I like. If you're a copyright holder on anything I host, get in touch, and we'll settle things in a steel cage instead of a courtroom.

So much shit, so little time (ok, the latter's a lie)

Life is awesome. How often can you honestly can you say that? Work is tough, but it's worth it. I'm putting in long hours, but next time you deal with a well-trained sexual assault counselor, you can thank me and the US government.

Tonight I saw what might have very possibly have been the last ever Mountain Goats show. We all wish a speedy recovery to John. The band was great, but the crowd was super super super lame.

Last night was World/Inferno Friendship Society. In a basement. It was INSANE. After getting drunk in a Jamaican restuarant with Andrea, Ryan, Jordan, and Tyson, we all skanked and pogoed and slammed and fell down. I don't think anyone left not feeling at least a little beat up. Anarchist cabaret orchestra ftw. Seriously one of the best live bands in America right now. My girlfriend wants to fuck the brains out of Jack Terricloth. I don't really blame her.

Record collector news: Finally found a vinyl copy of Good Mourning. I had to deal with retarded teenyboppers who read articles about the resurgance of vinyl and decided to buy Linkin Park on wax, but it was totally worth it. Got my copy of the reissued Goddamnit!, but it was bent. I was devasted. I sent it back to Asian Man, so hopefully they still have copies to send back. Three other pre-orders I'd been waiting on? Gaslight Anthem ruled, Till the Wheels Fall Off is unimpeachable, and the new Cute Lepers is probably going to make my end of the year list. Fuck yeah I'm stoked.

I guess it's hard to explain without sounding like a tool. I love life, I love myself, I love my girlfriend/fiancee-to-be, I love my friends, I love my city, I love my hobbies, I love my job, and soon the weather will be warm enough to sit out on the porch and drink beer and listen to Avail. Who the fuck could complain?

Since I didn't feel like doing some kind of band write-up, here're thirteen songs I've been rocking lately. I guess this makes up for my neglect of this place. Hope you enjoy!

I totally agree with you about W/IFS. After opening for Against Me! in South Florida last November, I had a few drinks and laughs with Jack, Semra, and Sandra and they are just awesome people. The fact that band isn't Enormous is a Crime. Then again, there's a part of me that loves the fact that they belong to Us.

Send some of those positive vibes my way. Seriously.
