WE'RE JUST LIKE OLD FRIENDS
I'm watching the Pumpinks on an old episode of SNL... this reminds me that i need to dig out all my old Pumpkins cds. When i was 18, it seemed like all the boys in my life loved the Pumpkins. I used to visit them in lines that they sat in for days straight trying to get concert tickets. These memories still amuse me.
Kill Hannah is up for Oven Fresh. Please vote for them. I used to fly to chicago to go see them play... such a fun band.
Anyway, I spent the afternoon in the hospital cause I fell down a step last night at the Cursive show. I fell flat on my ass infront of one of my best friends (and exroommate), Sarah Wilson, whom i hadn't seen in ages since she moved to Omaha with her boyfriend Tim from Cursive. Sarah was instantly worried, but thanks to a fair amount of booze in my system, a moment of "ow ow ow!!! that actually hurt!" was quickly followed by "ok, i think i'm better now," as i hopped to my feet and proceeded downstairs to join friends for drinks. Tim's really nice! I like him as her boyfriend!
I guess many of you have heard the new Killers song sample for their new song "When You Were Young." There's a lot of debate about it... I think i would've chosen a different 40 seconds for this, or at least judgement shouldn't really be made until one hears the entire song. I've been lucky enough to hear the better part of the album (one of the stories i meant to write about from last week involved me in an SUV with the execs of def jam as we listened to the new album ... la reid on one side rocking out and singing every word... kinda surreal), and it's totally, absolutely different from the first, but still the Killers. I guess the song off Hot Fuss that's closest to the feel of the album is "Jenny". The songs on this album are epic. You're not gonna find "Mr. Brightside" or "Somebody Told Me." If you want those, just buy Hot Fuss (again).
Anyway, last week Karen came by the office to check out my new office and she heard some new songs. I had to pick her jaw up from the ground. As one of the killers' first out-side-of-Vegas fans, she couldn't believe what the boys had evolved into. She was beside herself with goosebumps. Just give it a second, guys, you're gonna hear the album and get it. Sorry for this comparison, but Hot Fuss is like their Bends and this new album is like their OK Computer. You know it's the same band, but the different is compelling and wonderful.
Back to more important things, you'd be damned to not check out this performance by the Oohlas from "Live from the Casa de Ultragrrrl":
Please let me know what you think of the oohlas acoustic video. Maybe i'll post the actual song later on this week...
FRIEND THEM on myspace!
And then this one by my buddies Apartment... Josh Madden makes a nice cameo, as does my GORGEOUS friend the Real KTB! The song is about Chris from Boy Kill Boy!:
OMG, i just remembered (while watching "Dr. 90210" about hermaphadites) that i had a dream that I was making-out with Paris Hilton and she pressed herself up against me and i felt something hard against me... and realized she was a hermaphadite. I couldn't understand how she was able to hide that. Weird!!!
Karen and I were supposed to go to the movies together tonight, but found ourselves tied to our own TVs... so we aimed each other instead while watching the tube. Here's our conversation:

Ultragrrrl: i thought it was less cheesy than franz.... he kinda lowered the bar.

KarenPlusOne: but shes still a complete freak who touches little boys in the hot topic dressing room
