Tis the season

At first I thought the shoe part was my favorite, but then he broke things down a lot, and now I don't know.

Hop on the Spaceship

So we played tonight at Simon's After dark. THEN we went to LUNA in Royal Oak, Michigan. There we learned that this exists:

Then I came home and Zak showed me this:

Willow Smith is Will Smith's CHILD.

Willow Smith isn't even a tween. She was born on October 31, 2000.

I touch on you more and more every time

I could seriously watch this all day. Maybe one day Maria could be Beyoncé's drummer in her all female backing band.

I really want someone to buy me this DVD for my birthday. It's coming up!

Hey, we just got asked to Headline the Hamtramck Labor Day festival on Sunday at 8:00pm. We're playing the north stage! See you there!

records, ETC


Deadbeat Beat is playing a last-minute gig at the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival this Sunday. 8 pm. Free. Gogogogogo.


I just went to the record store for the first time in a WHILE w/ Alex. Spent a lil bit too much money. No more record shopping for this girl for another month. BUT, this is what I picked up...

The Rose Garden, S/T

Only album from a sort-of unremarkable 60s folk-rock group. I bought it because it had two Gene Clark songs I'd never heard before. When I got home and looked the band up on the internet, it was kinda funny because Allmusic says super geeky Byrds fans will buy it because it has the only recordings of two Gene Clark songs on it. Bahhhhh. The girl in the band has a really deep voice and I guess the song "Next Plane to London" was a hit back in the day. Listening to it; just got to side two. So far I like everything except the lead vocals on their cover of "She Belongs to Me." Um also they have a song called "Flower Town" and somehow Kim Fowley has a writing credit on it. It's so serious. BAHHHH.

The Bee Gees, "Bee Gee's 1st"

Not gonna lie, I'm happy I got this, but I wish it was Robin Gibb's super bitter solo record "Robin's Reign" instead.

The Rolling Stones, "Flowers"

Okay I know it's almost "Between the Buttons" but I don't care because it's mono and the first pressing. And it has so many hits. And I looked it up on ebay and it's going for more than twice what I paid. Woooooooo. And I like the cover. And mono.

The Rubinoos, "Back to the Drawing Board"

I remember when that Avril Lavigne song came out (ya know the one that Lil Mama later collaborated w/ Avril on a remix version) and Zak sent me a link to a fake Rubinoos MySpace that had the song "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" and it was the same song, basically. MIND BLOWN. Then 4 years later I bought this album because it was rainy and I needed to spend money on records so I wouldn't be depressed on account of the weather. Look at that cover. How could you be depressed.

Joni Mitchell, "Blue"

An all-time fave that for some reason I didn't own in this format.

Sometimes blogging about records I bought makes me feel better that I'm probably only going to be eating peanut butter 'til I get paid again next Thursday.

Take a ride to the land inside of your mind

That is a link to this kid's youtube channel. He has 552 videos of himself looking at videos on youtube. He has 5 favorite videos of other people doing the same thing.

I found it when I was looking at some Vivian Girls youtube clips. It was the number one related item. You can watch it here:

This was the video that he was watching:

Is this a new youtube thing? This is bizarre. Please, if you know more about this, let me know.
Here's one more of the

Also, on a lighter note:

Blowing my mind.
