Stars Release Maligned Remix Album, but The Original Still Rocks!
As is the case with any good party hot music is a must, so on Sunday I loaded up "Set Yourself On Fire" by Stars. Honestly the stellar track "Your Ex-Lover is Dead" may be my favorite song about dead ex-girlfriends. Pitchfork does not seem to think to highly of this reincarnation, and I might need to agree, but you can check out "Do You Trust Your Friends?"
AOL is streaming the latest albums from the Used and Bravery this week as well as indie rock hero Jeff Buckley (r.i.p.) While The Used and Bravery are offering more of the same (if your into that) Jeff Buckley - "So Real" is a great collection of album tracks, live cuts and B sides that delves further into this amazing artists mind than just "Grace" and Rufus Wainwright's cover of Buckley's Cover of Lenard Cohen's "Hallelujah." Seriously if you want to be the kind of person who listens to the music that influences the bands that you love then check out "So Real" by Jeff Buckley.
MeadWestvaco Putting Up Shop On the River.
The City of Richmond has announced that Meadwestvaco is moving to a location on the river next to the federal building in 2009. The facility will employ 1,000 people. This is not a new operation, but is actually a facility that is moving from Henrico... I love to see the counties suffer!
Spin.com has a great video from the forth coming Dinosaur Jr. album; "Beyond." Those of you who are 21 or younger please disregard my previous statement.
Adam Reported to Be Communist
While discussing property rights in my business law class last week I had a fellow student suddenly exclaim "Your a communist!" (Note to self: google "communist nations" for possible places to relocate when mob shows up with torches and pitchforks.) Just one of those odd moments I thought I should share.
Read this wonderful article this morning about Bull Sharks; turns out they eat people and can live in fresh water... this is not helping my irrational fear of sharks! They have been found as far up the Mississippi as Illinois! Not only can I not swim in the ocean, but now I can't even go swimming in the James!
Maroon 5 Love Juice Boxes
Maroon 5 releases "It Won't Be Soon Before Long" this week, and somewhere a soccer mom just wet herself.
Stereogum has rad new videos from Garbage and Blonde Red Head plus an odd interview with Lily Allen where she crudely and bluntly describes what part of the male anatomy attracts her to a man... seriously get this kid some Ritalin or Zoloft or something, and why am I so transfixed on this woman? Maybe I need to medicate as well.
Ozzy Osborne Still Makes Music?
File that under "Strange but true things done by people so burned out they can't even spell their own names anymore."
ISOTICA Still Amazing!
File that under "Things Adam just won't let go because they continue to produce amazing art like this..."Go to the site and see more because it is better than anything you could ever imagine you cube dwelling maggots (sorry about that I didn't take my pill today.)
I have no idea what a Fraud Squad is but I hope it involves Claire Danes. On a side note: Thank you Richmond for giving me more reasons to look up photos of Claire Danes!
