A little late for a summer song...

...but a great song none the less. Empire of the Sun "Walking on a Dream". This is all that's available from these guys right now. The one song. I hope the rest is this good. A mad 80's vibe in that chorus. This'll be my last post from Los Angeles. For now. Next, Toronto!

And please, have a look at this creepy girl.

Two weeks to go.

So, as of right now I am two weeks away from returning to T.O. Mixed emotions. I am trying to cram as much stuff in as possible. Anyone who might be interested in grabbing a drink when I get home, please message me. It may not feel like I have been away that long, but it feels like forever to me.

Someone mentioned the band Archers of Loaf today and it reminded how much I love "Web in Front" I hadn't seen the video until five minutes ago and what a weird one it is. If you can explain it to me, I'd love to...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Black Postcards

Been reading Dean Wareham's Black Postcards: A Rock & Roll Romance. A great and easy read. And by easy I don't mean simple. It's so easy because it's fascinating. I myself have never researched the history of any of Wareham's bands (Galaxie 500, Luna, Dean & Britta) and to hear the story straight from the source cuts out any risk of false information found on the web. Granted this is Dean's story not everyone elses.

Luna: This Time Around

Galaxie 500: Tugboat

Dean & Britta: You Turn My Head Around (Back Numbers is a great album for those that don't already know.)
