The three of us have something in common. We suck at talking to people we like. Hitler of all people. This isn’t a good thing! I NEED TO WORK ON THIS!!! I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE HITLER!! I don’t think anyone does, except neo Nazis but I assure you I’m not one of them.


Lightspeed Champion

So I haven’t expressed my love for Lightspeed Champion,  ne Devonte Hynes, on this blog yet. Here it is: I LOVE HIM! His lyrics are so beautiful and his blog is basically my thoughts seen through the eyes of a black Texan-raised in England-with a British accent. How amazing  can this guy get? Dev I love you and we basically share the same problems relationship wise. Your album is like the soundtrack to my life. It’s not even funny… it’s pretty fucking sad if anything. Ohh and your blog is so interesting to read but I haven’t read it lately for lack of time. I need to make time for it … I really do. Wow so that was a personal blog to Lightspeed Champion… I doubt that he’ll ever read it but WHATEVZ … DEV, you and I are kindred spirits and I’m sad I missed your show at the Troubadour over the summer. If only I were in the fucking country. Come back soon!

Here’s my favorite song by him, which I’m pretty sure is the longest, but I love all 9 minutes of it!

In today’s music news: Oasis are playing the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 4th, while Arctic Monkeys are playing the Big Day Out early next year in Australia. I wish it were the other way around. All the Oasis gig means for me is traffic if I’m home that day. Arctic Monkeys seriously need to play in LA again.

Here are the Oasis American dates if you’re interested:

Oakland, CA Oracle Arena (December 3)
Los Angeles, CA Staples Center (4)
Las Vegas, NV The Pearl (6)
Denver, CO Broomfield Events Ctr. ( 8 )
Minneapolis, MN Target Center (10)
Chicago, IL Allstate Arena (12)
Detroit, MI Palace of Auburn Hills (13)
London, ON John LaBatt Centre (rescheduled 9/9 date)
New York, NY Madison Sq. Garden (17)
Camden, NJ Susquehanna Bank Ctr. (19)
Washington, DC GMU Patriot Center(20)

and here are the days Arctic Monkeys will be performing for lucky Australians or people who have enough money to go down under to see them:

Friday 16th January – AUCKLAND
Sunday 18th January – GOLD COAST
Friday 23rd January – SYDNEY
Monday 26th January – MELBORNE
Friday 30th January – ADELAIDE
Sunday 1st February – PERTH

I’m still hoping to win the lottery so I can travel around the world to see my favorite bands. This hasn’t happened yet and it doesn’t help I haven’t even tried.

Bisou Bisou!

This morning I tried making pancakes. A couple of years ago I attempted making crepes, which ended up looking like pancakes. Ironically this morning’s pancakes looked like crepes. To my children (if I ever have any): I’m sorry but you’re not getting pancakes from mommy or you have to wait until grandma makes them for you. Love, me.

I might study abroad next year … hopefully in England but I don’t know with the whole money thing and then I’ll probably get homesick but oh god I think I might just be the happiest person ever if I live there! GIGS EVERY DAY probably. Then again that might make me even more poor than I already am.

I might actually be able to see THEM and save the tears I had when Milburn broke up.

As promised

Here are Foals on Jimmy Kimmel taped more than 4 months ago

and here they are playing my favorite Bside for the first time ever. Yannis said it was shit, but I’m so happy I WAS THERE. Now I have to wait until the next time they come back and give me my FOALS fix.
