Constantines “Shine a Light” LP. Overrated semi-boring indie rock that is just gritty enough to keep my attention when I get an itch to put it on. Got this as a promo when I was a part of Sub Pop’s street team back in the day. #LP #Vinyl #Records #Constantines #ShineALight #IndieRock #SubPop
You can tell this picture is old because I am wearing a wrist watch. Who wears wrist watches anymore? I think I was 20 when this was taken, as we were in Toronto so I was legal to drink there and this is documentation of my first legally consumed drink in North America, some time in the summer of 2002.
So Nicole is studying for her social workers licensing exam on Wednesday and has ordered me to stay out of the house for as long as I can while she studies (she was studying for over 14 hours today!!!) and lucky for me, it looks like a time consuming project has presented itself to me. I am thankful for this.
With that said, I need to go to bed. I gotta be up for work in 6 hours. I need my sleep, folks!
Alice Donut “Ten Glorious Animals” LP. Surprisingly, this is my favorite album of their’s. It is easy to listen to and not too abrasive or cartoony, yet still full of all the best elements that generally endear Alice Donut to people. Catchy as hell too. “Don’t I Know” is my personal favorite and their trombone-based cover of The Pixies “Where is My Mind” is fantastic. #LP #Vinyl #Records #AliceDonut #TenGloriousAnimals #AlternativeTentacles #ThePixies
His belly button used to make me so mad, but now I’m sad.
The wall is empty now.
Guess it is true. Wonder if The Cancer would have got Dee Dee too, had he not been a junkie.
Dude. What the fuck?!
I can be perplexed that LeBron is coming back to Cleveland, but I refuse to complain.
As a kid I always enjoyed watching college basketball, but when LeBron got drafted was when I started watching NBA ball. I have to admit, I love watching the man play basketball. Before he left Cleveland, I’d go over to my parent’s house a couple of times a week in the winter just to watch the games with my old man on their giant 60 some inch TV and it was fun. While my dad never stopped watching The Cavs, I did because I didn’t have the gas money to waste watching post-Lebron Cavaliers get humiliated on such a regular basis. I’d still watch a game with my pops if it was on and I was over at their house for another reason though.
I like how he’s wearing one of his giant, ostentatious rings in that picture.
For a little while, there will be that contingent of “proud” Cleveland sports fans that will spout a bunch of shit about not wanting him back in “our town” but come the fall, The Q will be selling out again regularly and I strongly doubt that many people will really hold it against James that he decided to bring his talents back to Northeast Ohio.
It is like a cross between funk and the heaviest of metal. John Fogerty would say it choog-a-loogs along.
