Being home is so not that great. Been sitting around all day in a sweatshirt and under 2 quilts eating and drinking (m&ms and cranberry juice, respectively), letting my dog in and outside, refreshing twitter, etc. Life without friends 24/7 is pretty dull.
On the brightside, yall can read this now!
I know it’s über typical, but This Is Happening by LCD Soundsystem is fucking incredible. I am seriously infatuated with this album. I was never even that huge of a LCD fan – I mean I liked “Someone Great” and “All My Friends” as much as the next person but God, I hate “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” SO MUCH. But then theneedledrop threw this in my face earlier today and it makes me want to cry a little – like my world is crashing in on me. Is it possible James Murphy is not the creative, killer dude that I thought he was? Did he maybe rip off some other greats a little? I’m reserving judgement, but if you want the gossip, head over to The Needle Drop for this comparison thing they’ve got going on
Is the new LCD Soundsystem a rip off?
Since All Points West was cancelled, True Blood is pretty much all I’ve got left to look forward to this summer. AND OMG I’M SO EXCITED. Check out the season teaser over at HBO, and if you don’t already watch True Blood, start. Sookeh.

This shit looks sweet. Kind of an evasive website as far as giving solid information, but there is an asterisk at the bottom that says alludes to tickets, so I recommend visiting the page daily for updates. According to the site,
The event is going to be a groundbreaking combination of interactive art and installations, panels, workshops, screenings, and live performances. As much as The Creators Project is a digital archive of our digital world, it is also a testament to the enduring appeal of the Real. Many of the artists within the program explore the way that digitally manipulated images, sounds, and motions converge in real time, in real spaces.
Check it ouuuuut, I’ll be at the NYC opening hopefully!
