those patterns take away my time

i don't know what's happening to me.  more and more, i find myself liking unexpected things.  like, i don't know...those little cheese-flavored chocolates from the asian grocery.  and phantogram:

good, right?  yet another reason sasquatch is gonna rule.

also, truman peyote are from boston.  i think they sound like a barebones animal collective, in a really really good way:

and why did no one ever tell me about jaylib???

we were promised jetpacks...

i got one of those pocked video record thingz...ima start using it:

we were promised jetpacks - it's thunder and it's lightning

we were promised jetpacks - quiet little voices

we were promised jetpacks put on a pretty solid show.  i also have a video up from royal bangs (the opener) on my youtube account.

i'll probably try to do this for a lot of the shows i go to.  more about which...later.

playin' yourself like accordion

a new mix, yo.

i just got back from vegas, and somehow failed to get rich OR married.  i can't help but think it would've been different if sinatra was still around.

anyway, this mix is loosely vegas-inspired.  start at sinatra, end in hell, all haze and bleeding red lights in between.


1. frank sinatra - my funny valentine
2. air - playground love
3. danger mouse/sparklehorse/jason lytle - everytime i'm with you
4. cinematic orchestra - all things to all men
5. madvillain - accordian
6. richard swift - lovely night
7. nick drake - at the chime of a city clock
8. wheat - body talk (pt 2)
9. marry a thief - old enough
10. phosphorescent - my dove, my lamb
11. starflyer 59 - too much fun
12. starflyer 59 - days of lamech
13. danger mouse/sparklehorse/flaming lips - revenge
14. sleigh bells - 2hellwu

 (i hope you) enjoy it.  maybe save it for solo night-driving, if you do that sort of thing.
