finger sniff

(no subject)

Woke up with this song parading through my head:

I heard it for the first time in a very long time on the radio yesterday morning, as I was stocking lamps. I thought it was Snow Patrol, though it seemed a bit complex for a Snow Patrol song (though still simplistic and repetitive). I felt silly when I rememberd that it was Nada Surf, as I had actually seen them LIVE - the only show that I went to all last year (not including shows that I was playing, of course.) when they opened for Guster.

I've always cheesily enjoyed Maroon 5's music, too, though a lot of their songs tend to sound quite alike. However, they have done one of my Cardinal Sins as a Musician not once, but TWICE (maybe more! I haven't seen all their videos) - the lead singer has made out with people in two videos. TACKY. Just make some pr0n already, you may make more money out of it and at least get to win The Gameshow at the end.

And Invader Zim is still on television! Granted, it's on at 430 in the morning on a channel no one has and there will never be a new episode, but it's still on!

Everytime I see you falling, I get down on my knees and pray...

Someone in InsaneJournal gave me a letter S for the following meme:

Comment and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 of your favourite songs that begin with that letter.

1. Nickel Creek - Sabra Girl Such a simple, yet complex song, the harmonies and the intricate twinings of the guitar and mandolin? Sigh.

2. Lisa Loeb - Sandalwood One of my favoritest love songs evur.

3. Jellyfish - Sabrina, Paste, and Plato One of my all time favorite bands that I can go on about for ages. VERY poppy, and I love that they can pull it off live.

4. The Excentrics - Seen No Sun This album was in my cd player a lot back in '95 when I lived in Northern Virginia. They're now known as Getaway Car, I believe.

5. The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band I tried to put things on here that most of you have probably never heard, but decided to add this one BECAUSE.

6. Marcy Playground - The Shadow of Seattle This cd will always remind me of driving around Tempe, Arizona, singing loudly along with my friend Peyton. I miss Peyton.

7. Sloan - She Says What She Means A play list by me wouldn't be a playlist by me without some Sloan.

8. Better Than Ezra - Sincerely, Me Again, wouldn't be a list by me if it didn't contain some Ezra, yo.

9. Electric Doormat - Skeleton in Silhouette My old band! Now known as The Mercury Tree, of course. You can even hear me singing "skeleton" repeatedly in the background :D I love to point out to people that 95% of this album was recorded by Lead Singer Ben all by his lonesome - all the songwriting, all the instruments, harmonies, arrangements - all in his bedroom.

10. Flickerstick - Smile A friend (Nicole!) slipped me their demo ages ago, and alas, it was stolen when my Jeep was broken into. Quite a bit later, I caught them on the Vh1 show "Bands on the Run" or something like that. I became emotionally vested, they ended up winning, and I bought their real album after that.

Honorable mention, just because the song always makes me smile:

Oh, and the leaves are already changing, which makes me HAAAPPPPEEEE! Autumn is my absolute favorite, and I will be able to bring out all the loverly scarves that mysoulhole made for me! And my bear hat. Or moogle hat. Whichever I feel like being on whatever certain day.

I feel beyond blessed with our weather - everyone not in the PNW seem to be suffering in triple digits, but we've had an extremely mild summer (knock on wood) It's been in the 70's the last week or two, only over 80 50% of the time, and only over 90 a handful. We did break a hunnerd, but that was only for a couple of days. The hot days we DID have, I slept through, as I'm on graveyards.

Found: The Lost Boys Sequel! (printed in Entertainment Weekly)

Break out the garlic necklaces! Corey Haim and Corey Feldman are set to reprise the roles that made them famous in a sequel to 1987's vampire-slayer hit The Lost Boys. And the catering crew might want to stock up on Gatorade: This straight to DVD version is set in the world of extreme sports. Lost Boys II: The Tribe is "like X Games meets Jackass," Says exec producer Mary Viola. "Today's vampires are adrenaline junkies." In addition to Haim and Feldman, Boys features another casting coup: Angus Sutherland (half brother of original Boys star Kiefer), who appears with The O.C.'s Autumn Reeser and American Pie Presents: Band Camp's Tad Hilgenbrinck.

The news comes three weeks after an episode of the A&E reality series The Two Coreys aired, in which Haim was shown crying when Feldman informed him that they wouldn't be in the sequel. (Feldman's manager says that when the episode was filmed last winter, only his client had been approached. Viola, however, says the filmmakers just began casting a few weeeks ago and always hoped to feature the duo.) Now the 35 year old Haim says he's "super-stoked" about the sequel, which he describes as "dark and deep - think The Crow meets Point Break." And that's all he'll say. "I can't give any secrets! I've waited 20 years for this. I'm not gonna ruin anything for anybody, even myself."




All I can say is, "OH NOES!"
