Seiken Densetsu - The Color Of The Summer Sky [May. 8th, 2009|10:34 pm]
It is no surprise to me that the best video game of all time would also have the best video game music of all time.

I think maybe one person will appreciate this...


Talk about nostalgia. 

Weird thought, but I feel like this would be an interesting game soundtrack to hear Appleseed Cast cover.  I think they could do really cool things with it.

Justin Townes Earle + Can't Hardly Wait [Apr. 21st, 2009|01:50 pm]
Justin Townes Earle (son of Steve Earle) covering "Can't Hardly Wait" live.  This cover is also on his new album, Midnight At The Movies which I highly recommend.

modern warfare 2 [Mar. 30th, 2009|07:44 pm]
I think I just got a boner.  Sorry, sorry, I know...too much information.

But, seriously, this is easily the game I've most anticipated since...well since the first one came out.

It took the second to most recent Family Guy episode for me to finally fully appreciate Conway Twitty.  Hilarious...or not so much.

I've owned a few of his albums (including the massive, four disc Conway Twitty Collection) for quite some time.  I even put all of the music I own by him on my IPod back around Christmas time.  It just never got much play.  However, now, I'm kind of obsessed...

leaves in the gutter [Mar. 9th, 2009|08:56 pm]
[Current Music |Superchunk - Learned to Surf]

There is a new Superchunk EP coming out in April.  I'm so excited.  There is also talk of a new full length.

Who wants to go to XX Merge in late July?  July 22 - July 26 I believe.  Fuck the Baltimore Fest, Gainesville Fest, and Chicago Fest...it's all about going to North Carolina in July.

Anyway, "Learned to Surf" is the best song of 2009, and that's a fact.  

Learned To Surf (you can actually stream the entire EP here, but "Learned to Surf" is the first song):

I've been trying to watch this movie for the last couple of hours (off and on while doing other things) out of morbid curiosity, and it's...just...so bad.
