Kind of an ecclectic week… a lot of solo artists for some reason. Anyways, I’ve also got the Ted Leo demos (aka The Homsars, I love it) and the Spoon demo in there.
The Decemberists totally kicked ass and I think my rents were really into it, what a blast. Plus my old buddy from school Marc Pestien was in town for the weekend and I got to hang with him, so that was very cool.
Also, I caught Fahrenheit 9/11 yesterday. I actually dislike Michael Moore most of the time (even though I agree with most of his viewpoints) because I think he does more harm than good by painting liberals as wingnuts, and more importantly because he often plays with numbers, which really bothers me. That said, this movie was fantastic, and it’s about damn time. As one-sided and blatantly opinionated as it is, it raises some great points that people need to hear. I hate to stoop to their level, but maybe it’s time that there is some inverse propaganda on the air to counter Fox News.
…with the blogging recently. I’ve been busy and sick. Anyways, here’s an update for posterity.
Our magical new project is coming along quite nicely. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you anything about it. It’s pretty sweet though, and should be out in beta soon. We also have a totally unbelievable completely kickassly sweet new project starting now. I’m super pumped.
In rotation right now:
Got to see the Thermals at BoTH a few weeks ago. Great to see a stripped down punk rock power trio. I was thinking that the last power trio I’ve seen before them was probably The Lawrence Arms. Speaking of which, Brendan from LA was on the Daily Show last night. They made him look like a jackass, as they do to almost everyone. Sucks when it’s someone you like though. Lastly, I’m excited to see The Decemberists again this weekend.
I’m bummed; didn’t get any last night and I feel like shit. Eh.
Oh, iRO stuff is coming along nicely. Krejler finally made Blacksmith and Adrenaline Rush is the shiznit. Also, we are going to start recruiting into the Spiders soon. Check out our new setup at geneiryodan.com for more info.
Guess that’s about it. Back to work…
