Happy holidays listeners. Here's to hoping you got that Red Ryder BB gun you wished for.
This band has better songs but like most bands who don't have a clue how to market themselves I cant download the tracks until their album is out. And when their album does come out I wont pay for it intentionally. Bands - don't release your music until you're ready to sell it. You're in no way creating a "buzz" around your band by teasing people with your tunes, you're simply making bad choices which lead to inevitable monetary losses. It's like showing someone a delicious dinner then saying you cant eat it until next month when it's gone stale.

Those familiar with the site are aware of my undying love for Caroline Polachek. Somehow I missed this album release and am just now comprehending at how absolutely flawless this album is. For the most part every song can stand alone as a decent track and that's hard to come by these days. Too often artists just cram together whatever bullshit they've assembled in the studio and you get an album with one single and a bunch of b sides and the record labels wonder why we pirate music. Bravo Chairlift. (Caroline, call me)
In other news: We may not be here soon. Samuel L. Jackson told me on a History channel special that the Earth is probably ending on the 21st. I feel a rant coming on... How the fuck can people be so stupid to think with all of our modern technology people who did shit like cut off heads to appease the gods knew more about our universe than modern society? These mother fuckers didn't even have cars with spinners, their math was on point but homeboys didn't even know how to make a cheese steak. And really isn't that the real testament to technology? Cheese steak technology.

I had a lapse in judgment last night. It was around 11 at the union square L train stop, for those who don't know NYC this is one of the most crowded stops in the city. I was coming home from a long night of sparring, I was sweaty, bruised, and one of my eyes was almost swollen shut. All I wanted in life was to go home - take a shower and goto bed.
The L train slowly approaches the station, about 7 packed cars pass by me until the train stops. Miraculously the doors open in front of me to a completely empty train - here comes my lapse of judgment. I enter said vacant train thinking some heavenly being was smiling down upon me. The doors closed.. Am I really the only person on this train? I look through the train window at the car next to me, a group of people are just staring at me seeing what my next move would be. I look directly to my right and see the largest stinkiest pile of throw up I've ever seen in my life. Now comes the longest 60 seconds of my life between stops. At the next stop I exit as quickly as possible and run to the next train - everyone on the train is staring at me perplexed by my lapse of judgment. I had to comment... I gazed upon the onlookers and proclaimed "I made a huge mistake..." Now I fucking KNOW not to get on an empty train - I've been conditioned for it, it's either a homeless dude who shit and pissed himself or vomit.
In other news: HOLY SHIT THIS BAND.
