Today is one of those days where I want to get in the car and just drive. No destination. The music I want to hear. A bottle of water. My pad and a pen. Sorting out the thoughts clouding my mind.
I meant to post this yesterday, but I guess I got distracted. I’m in a good mood today. I may be singing some JT as I walk around cleaning up from lunch. I had a salad with a few cups of coffee. I love Giant Eagle’s Market District coffee. It has such a great flavor. I may have my family/friends send me some when I’m out west. I’ll miss their Market District teas too....

I feel very creative right now. I love when this feeling comes over me. I think I’m going to work on a song I started a few months ago. I love the chorus for it, but I never put any verses around it. It’s about time I do that. Daft Punk leaked today, and The Weeknd debuted a song clip. WHAT?! It’s not even Tuesday, and we’re off to a good music start. I bet the full song...
I forgot to mention my ride home from work earlier. I had the windows down. There was a slight chill in the air. It smelled of earth and rain outside. The combination of it all reminded me of my youth when I’d play soccer in the fall. Alt-J served as a fitting soundtrack to it all. It was a lovely moment.
May’s playlist. I tried to include a lot more...
I’m much too tired to blog right now, but I did manage to put together a playlist for May. I’ll post it next. Right now I’m gonna post the plays from last week. Man, I’m exhausted. I’m gonna drag my body to the shower here in a few minutes. This will prove to be quite challenging. 1. Fall Out Boy- 83 plays 2. The Black Keys- 55 plays 3. The Starting Line- 38 plays ...

MS MR - Secondhand Rapture: Exclusive Album... →
MS MR - Secondhand Rapture: Exclusive Album Premiere on Hype Machine I highly suggest checking out this new album from MS MR. It comes out next week. I hope I get to see them at Gov Ball. They need to release the set times already! COME ON! They added Foals in place of Death From Above 1979 today. While I’m sad I won’t get to see DFA ‘7, I AM SO GLAD THEY ADDED FOALS!!!! I...
From right now until the middle of June, my life is going to be quite eventful. It’s going to be so much fun! Tomorrow night I see The Black Keys in Pittsburgh. I’m really looking forward to seeing them again. They’ve killed it live in the past. I’m also am intrigued by The Flaming Lips, the opener. Their new album is a good kind of strange. I feel like I’ve taken...
What would I do to see Foals on their current U.S. tour? More than whatever you’d do for a Klondike bar, that’s for sure. The reason I want to see them so badly is because they won’t be in the U.S. the rest of the year, and I love the album they’re currently touring on, Holy Fire. They play Pittsburgh and Baltimore when I’m in NYC for Gov Ball. The Ohio dates are...
One more quick little blog post then I’m going to get ready for bed and maybe catch some of the Clipper game before I pass out. I’m exhausted because I stayed up later than I should have last night. I HAD to see how season 1 of The Killing finished after last night’s Mad Men. I was not expecting that ending! I’m not going to ruin it because YOU SHOULD WATCH THAT SHOW!...
This has been an amazing weekend! Record Store Day started off horribly because I was feeling sick on the way to Pittsburgh, but i shook it Friday night somewhere between the South Side and Millvale. The rest of the night went beautifully. I ended up with every RSD vinyl I wanted and even scored Phoenix’s new album. Yesterday was fun too even with the lack of sleep from being up so late on...
monjukebox: The Great Gatsby Soundtrack sampler : The xx, Lana del Rey, Jack White, Sia, etc.
I’m up late checking out new music. I love Tuesdays! Later when Spotify updates, I’m going to give Jessie Ware, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips, Fall Out Boy, and alt-J a listen. I’m really looking forward to Jessie Ware’s album. I was digging the beats on the iTunes clips. I can’t wait to give it a proper listen. I was tempted to dish out $6.99 for it on iTunes,...
This gets me excited for Arrested Development. →
It’s one of the best shows ever. It’s so well-written. I can’t wait to watch season 4 in May. I highly suggest watching it.
Well I listened to the new Fall Out Boy record on Monday. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t what I was expecting. I didn’t want to make any rash decisions on the project with only one listen under my belt. I was waiting for a solid leak to give it another go. 128? Please. I’ll bide my time. Don’t worry; I’m buying the vinyl next week if it’s at the record store....
