The party sound of London on this mix from The Count & Sinden.

OK!


Thought this was funny because it looks like the logo of the company I work for. Then I read the article and it was even funnier.

Noise


Saw Juno last night finally. Real good. Especially dug the soundtrack. This little gem in particular. Sonic Youth doing the Carpenters Superstar. Quick Google search reveals I'm a little behind the times here but whatever. Dig it.

Circus of Groove



Another single from Quiet Village. Still got that echoey sound but this one's got a funky spy movie groove to it. Psyched to hear the whole thing.

Bob Log III

The sweet sounds of a forty-year-old astronaut making rough country love to his guitar. This guy has to be seen live to be believed but his album is worth a listen as well. Actually, I haven't heard this whole album yet; but this song, for example, will kick your ass and offer no apologies. And it's just the opening track. Here it is:

Update: That definitely wasn't Bob Log III. My bad. MP3 updated.

Now & Later


So this site Color War 2008 (whatever that is) is doing a contest for people to recreate old pictures of themselves as they are now. The results range from funny to cheesy to actually kind of touching. I think its constantly being updated so it might be worth a second look too. Check it out here.

It puts the lotion on its...?!


The bill by Sen. Nick Gautreaux, D-Meaux, would give judges the option of imposing chemical castration on those convicted of sex crimes including aggravated rape, simple rape and indecent behavior with a juvenile. Chemical castration would be mandatory on second offenses, and the offender would have the option of choosing physical castration instead.
Amen.

Truck Spills



"Every day trucks pass us on the highway and we are completely unaware of what they may be carrying. But when one overturns, we get a peek into what is being carted around right under our noses. Sometimes, it's just a common item that we're not accustomed to seeing spilled on the road. Sometimes, it's a truck full of things we never thought about being hauled around by the truckfull."

Quiet Village



This is the soundtrack to a movie you'll never see- cracked lenses and thumbprints on the filmstrip, slightly out of focus, yellowing with age and worn from repeated viewing. I am (obviously) obsessed with this album right now. Here's one of the more abstract moments.

Quiet Village - Singing Sand (from the album Silent Movie)





Pretty Good?

No. It's gonna kick ass.
