I bought my first single tonite [single, not EP]. yep, YYYs "Machine."
It's ludicrously short for three songs.
But it's worth it.
"Machine" starts with Karen O's faded, disconnected rant, followed by 4 bursts of YYY noise which immediately click into the rock-ass dance guitar and drums riff that made me thing "HOLY FUCKING SHIT" at the concert. when it gets grooving, it really freaking gets grooving.
"Graveyard," the live track, is a retarded blues rock workout that only these beautiful, dirty dirty people could do
the "Pin" remix is the song I heard on the radio Wed.
the band has talked about doing a remix project before, and they only like remixes that are very different. this fufills that request. nothing like the orignal song, almost.
Fader YYY remix article, my own pic
really, this EP/single type thing should've been "Rich," "Pin," and "Tick." But I still like it.
ANOTHER [but fun] jazz band concert at the hyatt
played more GTA Vice City. getting better.
went to karaoke at Ben and Jerry's. weak.
Walker Bros. for choc.chip pancakes
Borders for NME [GREAT COVER W/ THE STRIPES] and my fantastic search for "Machine"
Zack's for Monty Python and the Holy Grail ["It is a silly place"]

Jazz band and Wind Ensemble concert went well. pics later.
QotSA "No One Knows" on MTV right now. ROCK. cool video, very cool band
I want that kind of guitar. i dont know what it is. Interpol has it, Josh Homme has it, Sahara Hotnights have it. nah, i'm probably making it up. I know Paul Banks has it, and I want it
Now Gideon Yago. I swear to god, this sub I saw at school today WAS Gideon Yago
and jeez, now the Vines' "Outtathaway." shitty video cause of the shitty crowd. but worth it to see Craig thrash around like that, fo sho
note: the bassist does not actually sing back up, but he is wearing the mandatory Vines track jacket instead of Craig
Sigur Ros this Sunday, if all works out well. rawk

orchestra concert sucked tonite, strings don't grasp the concept of intonation
nothing makes me feel cooler than listening to Daft Punk's Discovery ("Aerodynamic" and especially "Voyager"), driving in the maxima, wearing a fucking tuxedo

i have no idea what this means
Which NME 'Top 50 Cool List' Musician would you pick a fight with?
I saw Jackass tonite. Best movie ever.
tho we sat in the second row... ugh
Strangely enough, I also played Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for the first time as well . Nice... but I felt that it lacked the charm of the original.
and no bazooka
also bought Spoon's Kill the Moonlight. i downloaded a lot of it today, and it was at best buy, so i took it as a sign. great record. fit my mood wonderfully
tho the new Sigur Ros packaging is so dope that'll I'll have to buy it eventually
