Some New Tracks To Get Through the Week

This last song is by a young group out of Florida, one half of which goes to W&L. If you like it, they have some more great tracks on their myspace page. Coyote Kisses

D'arcy's Mugshot

Disappointed in the Lollapalooza Headliner Rumors

The big rumor is that the main three headliners for Lolla this summer will be The Foo Fighters, Muse, and Eminem. Hopefully the other three headliners will pick up the slack because of those three I am only interested in Muse. It looks like I will be spending all three days at Perry's again.

New Single from The Strokes

The Strokes have released the first single from their new album, Angles, set to be released in March. I am not a huge fluffer of the The Strokes, but I do like them and am glad they are making new music. After the first listen I am not blown away.

Super Bowl Commercials

I wasn't totally blown away by this years crop of Super Bowl commercials but here were some of my favorites.

I really liked the idea for this commercial, but two things brought down this commercial. First of all, I am not ever going to get excited about Chrysler, sorry, just not going to happen. If this was a Mustang or Corvette, then maybe. Secondly, you have Eminem being overly dramatic as he always is trying to be when he is put into some sort of serious situation on film. You just tried to sell me Brisk in a claymation commercial about 30 minutes before this, do you really think I am going to take you seriously?

This commercial has been getting a lot of buzz and deservedly so. It is simple, hilarious, and provides common ground for pretty much anyone (Star Wars). There is absolutely no monologue or dialogue in the entire commercial and it still works. This was probably my favorite commercial from the Super Bowl.

I like this NFL commercial mainly because of the fact that I am a pop culture savant. It was fun to see the NFL choose so many iconic shows that also had a strong identity tied to the place in which they were set.

Come to think of it, there is nothing really great about this commercial. I just really like most of Budweiser's ads. Plus it combines two of my favorite movies; the main character is the blonde hitman that works with Stever Buschemi in Fargo and the commercial ends with the whole bar singing Tiny Dancer a la Stillwater on their tour bus in Almost Famous.

Self explanatory.

Also self explanatory.

Ghostland Observatory Was Fantastic

Last night Ghostland Observatory came to W&L and needless to say it was a great show. Its just too bad they had to play in an airplane hanger, worse sound than The Aragon.


I don't know if The Last Waltz is better than Stop Making Sense, but it's pretty close. This is my favorite performance from the documentary. Van kills it, gotta love the leg kicks.
