Metric is playing here at the end of the month, which is pretty cool, but Robbers on High Street is opening for them. I mean, hell yes! And since I've started working at the radio station, I have a chance at tabling for the event. All I have to do is review the most cds over the next few weeks (I'll explain the whole process later). Here's a snap shot of the last three I did: Republic of Letters has the potential to break out in a Snow Patrol fashion, just needs a good show to play it. The Real Tuesday Weld are an interesting take on jazz. Alec K. Refearn is a poor man's Beirut. Now it's off to Calc

In addition to working as a camp counselor, I'm working at my mom's office. Last week this entailed taking apart old computers and removing their hard-drives, because there's sensitive data to be had and can't just be thrown out. Why am I telling you this? Because amongst the old computer parts were two speakers and a subwoofer. I am now rocking out to some good muzix.

Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga - Highly enjoyable. I espeically like Blow Out Yr Cherry Bomb, but it is a tight album

Our Love to Admire - Alright, but it seems to have not lived up to the hype of the band so far. Perhaps further listenings will change this. Still love Turn On The Bright Lights the best.

Boxer - by The National, my new favorite band, thanks to Rhapsodical (the number of bands I've found out about because of them is astounding. Seriously, all of you go to my profile page, find the group, and JOIN IT!)

Knives Don't Have Your Back - by Emily Haines & the Soft Skeletons, a good light rock album.

In other news, the passenger door to my neon was fixed, so people no longer have to climb into the back seat!!! And my MP3 player was fixed, so it should be back between now and the 21st. Life is on the upswing

turn the light out say goodnight

So I'll have a single next year. At first I was kind of resistant towards this idea, but the more that I think about it the more I realize that there are many benefits to this. I'm on the fifth floor of the Lothrop Building. My floor is all freshman, and there are some other freshman floors, but the building is all grades.

Now, I mostly can't wait to leave here. There's only a few things holding me back

So we are nearing the end of week two of Fred without an MP3 player. I think i'm supposed to get the shakes soon.

BARF:

In converting to under 100 megs, the video quality lost a little. And someone seems to be singing along right next to the camera. Still, a fantastic performance, one for the ages

I am definitely going to UPitt

In other news, I found out today from Christina at about 4:50 that there is, in fact, a video recording of BARF performing. It made my day, possibly my week. Thank you Christina. For those of you unable to witness the phenomenon that is BARF (Brigesh, Ariyan, Rob, & Fred) it will be up on Youtube soon enough!

Finally, I've been buying a lot of music lately. Highlights- Tapes 'n Tapes, TV on the Radio, Ambulance LTD, Built to Spill, Panda Band, Christians & Lions, Cold War Kids, Iron & Wine, and The High Water Marks, all of which I recommend highly.
