...what am I gonna do? Been needin you, wantin you...
That's a beautiful song.
It has been quite a long time since I've blogged. We moved back to Rose Park, back in the house on 6th north and I'm LOVING it. But unfortunately, I didn't have the internet for awhile in the move. Hence the lack of blogging. But I've got the internet again and I promise to keep up. :) On a related note, I have started working for Comcast and I absolutely LOVE it. I enjoy the people that I work with, but that's been true at almost all of my jobs. For once, I actually enjoy the work that I do. If you know me, you know that I'm a movie/tv junkie! So working in a place where we hear about all the newest shows and movies and things that are coming out is awesome! Plus I'm not talking to customers which is a bonus! : ) Also, the free cable and internet isn't too shabby! : ) I get so many channels that I don't even know what to do with them! So I can finally get back to watching Chelsea Lately, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and How To Make It In America. Oh and The United States of Tara. I love that show. I'm getting off track...
I didn't know if I should make this into a music blog or a what's new with me blog. But clearly, I've already been talking about what is new with me, so I suppose I'll continue with that as well as talk about all the new music I've been listening to.
Manda and I got a new puppy. She is so cute and sweet. She is a malmute/husky/border collie mix. She's got one brown eye and one blue. Her name is Zoe, although I call her Zoe 2 Toes. And we call her anything from Zoe to Joey, Sophie and Chloe! I feel like a mom mixing my kids' names up! :)
On the music front, there sure has been a lot going on! The new Coheed and Cambria album, Year of the Black Rainbow, came out. Manda bought me the deluxe edition which included a novel that goes with the album, a DVD documentary, and a card that gets you into shows early and gives you discounts on merch! She's awesome :) I finished the book 2 nights ago. It's weird, because it's totally science fiction/fantasy which I'm not generally into but I enjoyed it. I think because I already know the story through previous CD's, it's pretty easy to get into it. The CD is really good. It's a bit different from their other albums, but not in a bad or better way. Just different. A song that I am very much enjoying is called Far. Also loving Here We Are Juggernaut and Pearl of the Stars. I am going to see them in concert on May 10th at Saltaire with Circa Survive. Their new CD, Blue Sky Noise, also came out recently. I've never been HUGE into Circa Survive, but I like what I have heard. Since giving their new album a chance, I'm pretty impressed.
Deftones also came out with a new album and I really love it. I have been stoked on anyting they've come out with since White Pony to be honest. I mean, I've liked it, but it just hasn't grabbed me. But their new album is exactly the Chino and boys that I fell in love with 12 years ago. Wow. 12 years :) So check out Diamond Eyes!
Another new album I was pretty excited about was the new MGMT called Congratulations. I'm sad to report that I was pretty disappointed in this new album. I was expecting the infectious groove of Time to Pretend and Kids somewhere on the album, but it was nowhere to be found. I was reading an interview that one of the boys gave and he pretty much said that they were making music that they wanted to make and if people were looking for Time to Pretend on this album, they wouldn't find it and they could fuck off. Ha. So I pretty much just took that for what it was and maybe I'll give them another chance the next time around! Or maybe I'll even give this album another chance!
There is also a lot of new music that Manda has that I haven't listened to yet, but am excited to do so! The new Spoon, Vampire Weekend, and Modest Mouse are next on my list!
One more mention of music. I don't remember if I've talked about Idiot Pilot yet, but if not, it's high time I do. I ordered their album Strange We Should Meet Here off Amazon for like 2 dollars. Best 2 dollars ever! My personal favorite is A Day In The Life of A Poolshark. Because I'm such a poolshark :)
Speaking of poolsharks, Manda and I are wanting to get a pool table for our basement. So if you know anyone that is selling one for a reasonable price, send them my way! : )
I'm going to end this blog because it's been just a bunch of ramblings. Once I have my head on straight, I will put together a more thought out post. I just had so much in me bursting to get out!
So until then, stay classy and thanks for stopping by. But mostly, stay classy!
