DNC DNC Revolution

I think the most humorous moments of this year’s Democratic National Convention weren’t anywhere near the stage. It was in those precious seconds and minutes where the camera would pan the crowds in Denver and pick up some really unfortunate dance moves. [youtube=[...]

Not Another Post About Movies

I think “dumbfounded” would be the best way to described how I felt after watching this trailer: [youtube=] Yep. Somewhere along the line, I guess this had to happen. David Zucker, the man responsible for bringing absurdity-th[...]

Back to the Future

George Orwell is alive… and blogging. The Orwell Diaries were created in an attempt to garner interest in Orwell in today’s fast and furious online hub. And it’s apparently working quite well. His descriptions of the everyday mundane certainly aren’t 1984, but they sure show [...]

Don Dial

“I was twelve when that song came out!” “It’s a free country, you can be any age you want.” There’s stage banter and then there are the words that spewed out of Damon Che like a volcano. The drummer and last original member of Pittsburgh’s Don Caballero was [...]

It's My First Day

In a matter of hours, I embark on my first day at work. So, in celebration of this momentous event, I’ll keep this post short. In fact, this is just about it. Here’s a little ditty by a sometimes-described-as-emo act to take the entire experience back to the focus of the blog. Bright Eye[...]

I'm Not A Real Dr., But…

When approached with the subject of beloved cult band They Might Be Giants I’m usually a bit hesitant to say much of anything. I’m not much of a TMBG fan, or really a fan at all. But today when the subject came up, I bravely threw out that my favorite song of their’s is “Dr. [...]

Rock N' Roll Post-Graduates

[youtube=] They really don’t make ’em like this anymore. That was one of many thoughts that jumped in my brain while watching Rock N’ Roll High School the other day. Camp doesn’t even begin to describe it. Joyful absurdity. Now that m[...]

It is the Golden Age

I’m probably one of countless others to check out the newest TV on the Radio song, “Golden Age,” today. Hopefully, I’m also one of countless others to be absolutely floored by the track. The song is off the band’s new album, Dear Science, which will be arriving in just [...]

One Long Vision

For some reason the climax of Children of Men has come up in multiple conversations in the past few days. Namely, the fact that it’s such a grand scheme that shows how brave and experimental even the most mundane action shots can be and how exciting a typical art-house film (or film for an art[...]

Nick and Norah's Infinite Mix-Up

About a week ago I came across the trailer for the new Michael Cera-propelled film, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. The movie is aimed at all things indie in both film and music and although the plot seems thin, the brief clips from Nick and Norah have a down-to-earth sense of adventure to[...]
