Thousand Natural Shocks

Thanks to this post on my other site, I am now endorsing this band. Pezda agrees. You will see. Give it a few years. No one believed me about Radiohead either. (Of course the Stone Roses never outshone Nirvana as I speculated at the time.)


Lulu where are you?

You promised!

I am referring to MY Lulu, not this Lulu.

This is the only TV show you should be watching. Deny watching any other TV shows. At the conclusion of each new episode call your brother to debrief and be reduced to tears over the comic genius.

New CD Review

1. Regina Spektor - Soviet Kitsch: Stick with Begin to Hope. I was recently told "Fidelity" is on heavy rotation on VH1. I was unaware of this. Because I am that cool.

2. The Decemberists- the one with "I Dreamt I was an Architect": It has "I Dreamt I was an Architect" on it.

3. The Decemberists- The Crane Wife: Not bad. They seem to be evolving. Ever so slightly.

4. The Dears- I am not sure what it is called: The have something here, but they aren't quite there yet.

5. The Fratellis: I am not a Goonies fan. Not that I don't like the movie, I just never saw it as a kid. But the iPod commercial made me seek this out. There is a reason Apple is using "Flathead." It is definitely a single worth paying $.99 for [sidebar- what kind of society are we living in where the "cents" symbol is no longer accessible directly through the keyboard?] but I promise you, you can live without the rest of the album. bonus points for using pinup girls for cover art.

6. The Cure- Wild Mood Swings: The only proper Cure album I didn't own. I got it for $2. It isn't as bad as you think. Well, except for "Strange Attraction"" [shudder.]

7. Modest Mouse - This keeps growing on me. "Parting of the Sensory" is a wonderful song. This is the carbon song.
