This is bear #4 in my series of Radiohead bears. It's done in the
colors from the In Rainbows cover. I may do a glow in the dark one
next. Cause everyone wants to see a mutant bear staring at them when
they turn off the lights.
last night. I enjoyed it, although there was some pretty messed up
stuff going on. But from what I know about Chuck Palahniuk that's par
for the course. I'll be starting Atonement this week.
The best part from the otherwise boring spelling bee
Yet again, new month means new albums. I enjoyed listening to
both Placebo and Spoon. I had some serious nostalgia going on while
listening to A Series of Sneaks. That album reminds me of Austin so much. Without You I'm Nothing, even
though I can remember when I bought the album, doesn't remind me of
anything else. Nut listening to it for a month reaffirmed that it's not
my favorite Placebo album. Since those albums have 2 of my favorite
album covers, I thought i'd make a proper list..
In no particular order...
Joe Jackson- Look Sharp!
Placebo- Without You I'm Nothing
Keane- Under The Iron Sea
The Police- Ghost in the Machine
Spoon- A Series of Sneaks
This month's albums are similar because I used to really like these 2
bands and then they started to completely suck and sadly, I've
abandoned them to the point that I don't even listen to their good
albums anymore. So this month I'll be constantly wondering what went
wrong and thinking how good these bands used to be. I've actually been
looking forward to these albums.
Death Cab For Cutie- Something About Airplanes I'd
guess it's been 6 or so years since I listened to this album. I gave up
on death cab around the time Transatlanticism came out and Ben Gibbard
did all that horrible electronic crap known as The Postal Service
(which in my opinion is what ruined his ability to write good songs). But way back in 98, I was just hearing about Death Cab and for 3 albums
they were really fucking good. So it's going to be hard to listen to
this album without wanting to curse the music gods for turning Ben Gibbard into a complete toolbox. No doubt I will like it as much as I
did back when it was new.
Snow Patrol- Songs For Polar Bears Um....I last listened to this album maybe 6 years ago as well. Unlike Death Cab, I think this is Snow Patrol's only good album. Their second
album had some good songs on it, but overall kinda sucked. And then
after that they decided they wanted to turn into Coldplay (who now
wants to be U2, go figure), changed their sound and got successful. For
the record, it's not the success that bothers me, it's the turning into Coldplay. Anyway, I think this first album is pretty good, and it's sad
they've changed so much from what they used to be.
