I really didn’t think I could love the White Stripes more. New video for one of my favorite tracks. If you don’t realize the awesomeness of the Stripes or find Jack White’s pale androgyny incredibly hot, then I don’t think I can speak with you anymore.

Down by the Water

Facebook has gone to far when groups like this are formed. The hell? I can’t tell if it is real or satire. I don’t know which would be worse.

Screw Women’s Studies, I should have majored in homemaking. Normally I would applaud efforts to show that raising a family is hard work, but somehow I can’t get on board with this one.

Jack White in a kilt. Need I say more?

And in my-weekend-plans-are-cooler-than-yours, I will be attending the Treasure Island Music Festival, seeing Built to Spill, Spoon, M.I.A., Ghostland Observatory, Earlimart, Film School….. it’s too good to be believed.

Here’s some random songs that you should know:

P.J. Harvey, “Down By the Water

Ghostland Observatory, “Stranger Lover

The Distillers, “Beat Your Heart Out

Also, the “Boys” video because it’s damn good.

album that is blowing my mind right now

I really glossed over this when it came out last year, but now it is changing my life. I haven’t heard anything that sounds quite like it. It’s like a dash of the Strokes, Spoon, and maybe even a little sprinkle of Maroon 5. Standout tracks: “We Used to Vaction”; “Hang Me Out to Dry”.

[COLD WAR KIDS; Robbers and Cowards]

And even more awesome news…I’M SEEING THEM WITH THE WHITE STRIPES IN TWO WEEKS! GAAAHAHHUQHE(QHE@#

I don’t like Mondays

Just some thoughts on my weekend…

There is an open-air amphitheater only a few blocks from where I live, and there are concerts there once every few weeks, and I didn’t realize that the sound carries so much…but Friday night I heard Daft Punk loud and clear while I was sitting in my living room. NOYCE! The White Stripes are coming in a few weeks, so I will be able to hear Jack White screeching from the comfort of my own home. If you know what I mean.

I’ve been absent from live music for so long, and I broke my streak on Saturday when I saw M.I.A. I was totally blown away, and I have a total girlcrush. I think she may be even short than me. By the by, I got a copy of her new album and it blows my mind. I sent it to a couple of you already.

Have you seen The Two Coreys on A&E? I’m surprised some high-brow channel like A&E would totally jump on the has-been stars bandwagon, but come on, it’s the Coreys! (Haim and Feldman, for those of you raised under a rock). Okay, so it is totally staged, but it is ironically touching. Corey H. gets all pumped about the idea of making Lost Boys 2, and then Corey F. has to sit him down and let him know someone is already making it, and they didn’t want him. It was a lil heartbreaking to see a bloated Corey Haim crying and wondering where his life and career went. Also, Corey F.’s annoying and co-dependent wife is always getting in the way when Corey H. just wants to hang with his best bud. Riveting television. t also made me realize that I must have seen License to Drive about a gazillion times. I don’t remember even liking it. [Check out the Times take on it.]

Oh jeez, I am embarassed to admit this, but I sat through an episode of Rock of Love (essentially Flavor of Love but with Bret Michaels). I have never heard “bitch” and “slut” used so freely, and that’s just among the women. VH1 thinks they own the rights to popular culture. Seriously, they should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting these horrendous stereotypes for the sake of ratings. I bet they believe they are so far ahead with their programming, where they are seriously setting everyone back. Regardless I did watch it. Part of me was insanely jealous because I want to nail Bret Michaels. YES I KNOW he is gross and incredibly pathetic, but in my tween years he was my ultimate fantasy. I watched the Every Rose has its thorn video about a thousand times because at the beginning he gets out of bed in his bikini briefs. I hate myself.

Other than that, I officially finished The Deathly Hollows, and I will write my official stance on it soon. So prepare yourselves, it won’t be 100% positive. I also started reading Punk Rock Dad, more about that soon.
