ANTI-CLIMATIC!

OK! So all that t-minus bull shit... that was like, retarded. Basically, I'm back. I'm gonna start blogging again... but I guess I never left. I'm debating taking that comments feature down because it gives me a headache tho, so please don't be surprised when that happens.

Fuck, I forgot how to blog. Sort of.

I went to see the Streets last night at Irving Plaza and spent the majority of the show in the back of the venue dancing it up with Karen and Niki in celebration of Karen's 23rd birthday. Holla! We tried out a bunch of new dance moves like the pancake toss (which apparently is ALL the rage in St. Louis), accosted boys who walked by challenging them to a dance off, and yelled at "Oi" whenever we remembered to. Just for the record, the only reason we yelled out "oi" is because Mikey yells it out about every 30 seconds on his album, as does show opener Dizzee Rascal... however, Karen thought i was hollering "Oy!" which is possible.

Karen was kind enough to grace me with a copy of some Bloc Party cd that she's been going on and on about -- and the shit is really good. I'm fearful that I've just found a new obsession.

Other things catching my ear:

The Bravery -- every time i hear a DJ spin one of their songs I'm always like "I know this! I like this! Who is this? ... oh snap! it's the Bravery!" They're playing tonight at Bar13.

My Chemical Romance -- yes they're "emo" or "screamo" or whatever... but fucking shit, these guys made a great second album, and that's sometimes pretty hard. Either you live up to expectation, you surpass expectation, or the first album was so good that you just have no choice but to release music for the sake of releasing music... and MCR totally surpassed my expectations. I cried when I first heard their album. It's gorgeous.

Giant Drag -- i'm sort of obsessed with them actually. If you live in LA, they're doing a residencey at Spaceland I think. Go see them and tell me how they are live. I have a crush on Annie.

Also, please send me photos of your pets if you get a chance. Or any cute animal photos. I like those. my email: slewitinn@spin.com

And yep, Bloc Party rules... have been obsessed with them since I heard their EP this January.

Between BP and Muse, it's time to go back to London and stalk...um, STAKE... out a Brit rock cutie boyfriend.

you would know this i bet, but the new interpol has leaked. i am going insane.

holmes said...

oh baby. new interpol is pretty good. not as dark, a little dancier, but still nice.

Welcome back.

Giant Drag is good. I actually just posted Annie Hardy's cover of "God Only Knows" over at my site (http://music.for-robots.com)

So is the blog going in a new direction? Or can we expect the usual mad-cap antics?

And poor Matador... if only Interpol had gotten off its ass and put out an album a little sooner we wouldn't be raping the p2p networks for the new tracks.
