Munchhausen By Proxy

Okay, so I love Zooey Deschanel.  Case in point: The short version is she has style, intelligence and is ridiculously cute.  So, she was in Yes Man with Jim Carey this winter.  I thought it was great fun.  Her “pretend” band Munchausen By Proxy has several songs in the movie I recently purchased on iTunes [...]

Please, Give me a Second Grace

I am going to cross-link to this post primarily because it’s awesome and I want to be able to find it again later should the need arise.  I’ll do this in the guise of some commentary on commentary…  How appropriate to the web. I found the following commentary on music in The Royal Tenenbaums.  In [...]

Papillon Parade

I just really liked this image after listening to Masterfade by Andrew Bird.

Gibson SG

So, I picked my guitar last night after probably over a year.  It was nice to realize that I still have very aspect of “Say it Ain’t So” and “Everlong” memorized.  I even took the time to learn a new song.  Oh, I’ve missed my guitar. Perhaps more interesting was my distant, nostalgia about “Everlong.”  [...]

Andrew Bird

I attended the Andrew Bird show on Wednesday evening.  It was a really great time.  Their opener was a band called Lonely, Dear who was also awesome.  I’m not quite sure how to describe the opener.  They are from Sweden and used strange noises in harmony to great effect.  I couldn’t tell much about the [...]

Some Musicology?

I attended Opera at the Grand. The Grand, by the way, is a super-cool theatre.  It’s obviously from the 30s and very art-deco, despite the fact that it is relatively small. It comes from a time when people cared about the appearance of such things beyond is it “clean” and is it “functional.”  I still [...]

Weezer – The how and why?

Weezer.  A band that for many people of approximately 25-31 conjures up images of middle school to high school listening to “Say it Ain’t So” while riding in a car to some destination of young fantastical (only in our minds) whimsy.  Similarly, the name Weezer conjures images of the greatness of the infamous second album, [...]

AOL Radio & Pandora on iPhone

I just love AOL iPhone Radio and Pandora iPhone, Pandora is on the left, here.  They are both apps for listening to music on your iPhone.  I love my iPhone, as anyone who knows me will attest.  Recently, as a sort of birthday present to myself, I was considering getting satellite radio, mostly for the [...]

Imogen Heap

So I’ve been listening to Imogen Heap these days.  I really forget in this world of throwaway pop, how much I simply enjoy great, poetic, picture-painting lyrics. For example: Oily marks appear on walls where pleasure moments hung before. They take over the sweeping insensitivity of this still life. –Hide and Seek, Imogen Heap Its [...]

Weezer – Make Believe – Peace

All these problems on my mind Make it hard for me to think There is no way I can stop My poor brain is gonna’ pop And I don’t have a purpose Scattered on the surface I need to find some peace And all the broken tethers We can bring together I need to find [...]
