I JUST GOT A COPY OF ICKY THUMP! AIIEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Ok, it’s not the best quality copy, but I have it. [passes out]
I want to marry them. Both of them.
In which I do the thinking for you and tell you what you should be watching/listening to.
Newsradio; I don’t know why I have been watching sitcoms lately. I kind of rully want to work at this station. And little known fact: I find Andy Dick hilarious.
Tim Armstrong, A Poet’s Life: Rancid/Operation Ivy founding member has a solo album. He is a phenomenal songwriter and his recognizeable voice is always a comfort to hear, but I HATE solo albums from people from my favorite bands (except for A.C. Newman). Just make another Rancid album. [official release: May 22]
The Macabees, Colour It In. No, it’s not Jewish-themed as far as I know, but it is still catchy but this thing will be hyped to death pretty soon. If you can stand the hype, check it out. [official release: May 10 ]
Get “All In Your Rows”
Polyphonic Spree, The Fragile Army. I previously found this band obnoxious and gimmicky, but this one they actually spent time caring about the music. [official release: June 19]
Get “Get Up And Go”
The Chemical Brothers; We Are the Night: Sounds like every other electonica Chemical Brothers album, but that’s a good thing. [official release: June 21]
Get “All Rights Reversed”
…is on the cover of Rolling Stone. Finally, they have a cover of someone who deserves it. Despite having a massive sunstance problem, she’s pretty cool. I love her style. And, of course, the music. In case you don’t already have Back to Black, here are some of the best tracks.
I caught some TBS episodes and really wondered why I ever liked the show. The first three seaons were quirky and enjoyable, the characters were like bizarre charactures and didn’t take themsleves to seriously. But then the characters got so serious and Carrie acted like a five year old. They created all these disgusting generalizations about women and they all acted like selfish c*nts. Once babies are involved, you know it is going downhill. But the fashion! Okay, so they gave Monolo Blahnik a household name and made flower broches sell millions, but sometimes it was like watching a modern Emporer’s New Clothes. Just because it is designer doesn’t mean it looks good. Half the time they looked like hookers from 1981 or escaped mental patients, or five-year olds dressing themselves for the first time. A lot of it was fun, but there were some DOOZIES. Here are the most hilarious ones. Take that, Patricia Field!
10. Carrie, you forgot your pants!
9. Hookers looking for work.
8. I can’t believe she found a pink garbage bag.
7. Minnie Mouse couture.
6. I don’t even know what to say.
5. It’s like a Halloween hobo outfit you’d buy at CVS.
4. Liederhosen is soooooo right now.
3. Look closely. There are feathers coming out of her ass.
2. THe belt can’t really serve its lfe purspose if it is doing that.
1. She looks like a homeless hooker who raided the dumpster behind a Jessica McClintock store.
The Macabees, “Precious Time” This band will be huge.
A new track from the New Pornographers. I canNOT wait for this album.
The New Pornographers, “My Rights Versus Yours”
There is a biopic of Ian Curtis that is supposed to be amazing. If you don’t know who Ian Curtis is, don’t ever fucking talk to me.
