I came to a really sad realization the other night, I was watching a documentary that showed a clip of the Ed Sullivan Show with The Beatles performing, girls were literally passing out while screaming so loud their voice is probably still hoarse to this day. Right then I realized that no contemporary band will ever get a reception like that again, does it take a repressed age to recieve such an ovation? Dont get me wrong, I see bands get the screaming girl thing all the time, but its different now - it lacks the same intensity as wildly screaming teens in the 1950s, an almost involuntary state that only shows itself when you truly desire something. This got me thinking more and I started wondering if shit like justin bieber was our modern day beatle? If that's the current state of music I want nothing to do with it,the two states of music always boggle my mind, music: which is what you hear places like KCRW, stereo gum, and here - then there's Music which panders to the teenage heart with mommy and daddy's credit card in a paper envelope in their pocket. -- See that folks? there's more going on in my head than just dick jokes. I almost deleted this because there's really no point to state, but that would go against what left as rain is, were just dudes talking about what we think about bullshit - That's what gives this little niche on the internet a soul.

I just saw a lady walking down the sidewalk with aluminum walking sticks. What are you training for the olympics crosscountry skiing during your lunch break? That just reminded me of those ladies who walk to work in their white sneakers and hose and change in to their heels while at work. Real sexy ladies, just keep it up.

Christmas soon approaches and you know what that means - I have to wait until the last absolute minute to do my holiday shopping. Those of you who know me well know I cant fucking stand crowds(I accidently wrote crows first, and on second thought i hate them too), traffic, or any of that mundane worker ant bullshit. Well, today is the day I brave the lines and do absolutely all my Christmas shopping in fell swoop (I had to look this term up, I always thought it was one fowl swoop). Wish me luck listeners, I may end up killing a man with my bare hands today. or is it bear hands? Happy Holidays kiddos, 2011 will be the year of left as rain.
alex mejias - shaking sticks since 1983 on December 19 2010
Left as rain: more music than you can shake a stick at. No im serious, try it. LOL at you for shaking sticks. In other news: Whenever I hear this band I always picture what it would be like seeing them live. In my head I picture two samurais in full battle gear just rocking out on syths, then at the end of the show they pull out their swords and for the encore they battle to the death.
