NPR’s Decade in Music series gives some well-deserved props to Britney’s song “Toxic”. Yes, you heard me: WELL-DESERVED, dammit!

random notes from the weekend

• “Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl” (the first Pirates of the Carribean movie) is really not that great. i was watching it this weekend and i realized that i didn’t remember a single scene from the movie. i’m not really eager to see the second one, either. • “Talladega Nights” is […]

Death Cab for Cutie – I Will Follow You into the Dark

currently spinning: death cab for cutie – plans current track: i will follow you into the dark i have a really bad habit of not listening to albums all the way through. i think i’ve listened to the latest dcfc album completely through maybe once or twice because i always get caught up in the […]

whoa, nelly~!

I’ve been a long-time fan of Nelly Furtado since her “Like a Bird” days (did I mention I met her once? She’s even shorter than me!!), and her new album “Loose” is definitely one of my favorite albums of the year. I really like almost every song on this cd, although I’m partial to the […]

the grey album

listening to dj dangermouse’s ‘grey album‘ right now, and damn is it good. song of the moment: jay-z and dangermouse (and of course the beatles) – what more can i say

mini music update…

that kelis song ‘milkshake’ is so freaking good. got me listening to another old single of hers, “caught out there“. i’m amazed at how well she captures the song’s anger and emotion. it leaves a person shaking.

punting work

i have a tendency to be most productive when i’m hitting a deadline. this includes productivity in relation to what i’m supposed to be doing and what i’m not supposed to be doing. 0_o

anyway, i’m swimming in a sea of really good music right now. here’s a snapshot of what i’m listening to.

interview with damon albarn

the san francisco bay guardian published a pretty nifty interview with damon albarn last week. read it here.

before i forget…

In case you haven’t heard, BLUR’s new cd is AMAZING. their bassist is pretty damn hot too. here’s a pic from coachella (i still need to post those pics.. doh!). no damon albarn pics to post just yet.. maybe eventually. =)

on mixtapes

jer and i were playing tennis today, and our conversation revolved around the topic of Semisonic’s last CD, “All About Chemistry.” That CD, if you haven’t heard it, is a debacle of catastrophic proportions. Gone was the Semisonic of such terrific albums as “The Great Divide” and “Feeling Strangely Fine;” here was a new Semi […]
