Two days in a row my friends. WHAT NOW!? **chest bump**
Yesterday, I talked about my love of eastern european sounds... you know horns and percussion, blah blah blah. Today, I wanted to talk about an acoustic sound that is another one that I just can't get enough of - José Gonzalez.
His second album is called In Our Nature and it was released in late September. This dude knows how to play the guitar - his pronunciation is a little fucked - he slurs everything he says and I'm already not that great at figuring out lyrics on my own. I was looking up lyrics to the song Teardrop the other day, which by the way is an old Massive Attack song, and I was WAY the fuck off on the lyrics I thought he was singing. Whatever. This album is amazing.
So, apparently José wants to put out a series of music videos about "the sins of humanity." Here's the second in the series - the video for Teardrop. Enmuthafuckinjoy.

No worries! I'm back from hiatus.
I was myspacin', friendsterin' and facebookin' it when it occurred to me - I SHOULD BE BLOGGIN' instead. So I've decided that the first thing I want to discuss is the plethora of great new music that I've been listing to. Hopefully some of you share my taste in music - perhaps some of you don't. But! It's all good. I think if you listen to some of these tunes, regardless of what music you usually listen to, you'll find that you like some, IF not all of it!
Seriously. I know my shit.
This is Beirut's second album. You can read the more detailed account of Beirut's musical history elsewhere, because what I really want to talk about is the music itself. Zack Condon, the lead singer, has this Eastern European-inspired sound - with horns and percussions that seem to be some soundtrack from some old war movie. I can't get enough. Check out this video of him and his band...

JLo is a magical superstar singer. She can trip, almost fall and she still doesn't miss a note of that song!

VH1's Rock of Love reunion was last night. It was rather disappointing. A few of the girls dished on sex and orgies in the house. Bret Michaels said he was "turned on" after just about everything. Gross. The winner basically said the show was bullshit and said he picked the wrong guy. She suggested he should've picked the girl with big hair who tattooed his name on her neck. Here is a video of Bret acting extra-douchey:

So I guess I am going to have to take some time from tipping cows and making maple syrup? My move to The Big VT has slowed my postings indeed. But now that our condo got electricity and indoor plumbing, there will be no more excuses. Promise... I leave you with this...
