So this album happened and blew my fucking mind... but more importantly I experienced what could possibly the most first world problem. Last night I had an internal debate over whether to order the shittier Chinese food which comes with a fortune cookie or the better tasting Chinese food which comes sans cardboard destiny treat. After much internal deliberation the better tasting Chinese food prevailed. Now I'm left here with great chicken and fried rice but no future.

Midlake returns- this time with a new singer. I was skeptical about this album but it grew on me pretty quickly. For those not familiar with Midlake their singer/songwriter left the band to fend for themselves. Eric Pulido, their guitarist, stepped up to bat at vocals. Personally I don't think Midlake has ever sounded better, so rock on Eric Pulido and Midlake for your perseverance. I'll leave you with a quote from Pulido responding to why the band stuck together - "I remember Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips once told us â€” a long time ago, when they graciously had us on tour â€” he said, 'You know, if I could give you one piece of advice ... .' And we're all waiting with bated breath to hear what Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips would send down from heaven and give us this piece of advice. And he says, 'Just stay together.' You know, it was so simple, but it's right," Pulido says. "If it's there, keep going."

There is so much music that comes into the world everyday that I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed. I mean, I reached my maximum of peoples names that I can remember about 8 years ago. So... I'm pretty much fucked. I need an intern just for reminding me of songs I like. A braintern. Sorry brainterns, I can't offer college credit. Or money.

I'm finally coming up for air. I've been working freelance in house the past week and a half + coming home then doing work for my other clients - hence the lack of posts. The finish line is finally in sight and soon I can return to my usual routine of thinking of funny stuff to write on this semi-alright blog, working 1-2 hours a day, and doing 2-4 hours of jiu jitsu a day. I have my priorities totally in check.
