I just got back from a Dirty Projectors show at The Glass House in Pomona, Ca AND IT RULED. WOW I’m so glad I went. So. Good. THEY’RE SO GOOD. Last year I saw them in San Diego at some random seated local the night before halloween. I remember wanting to wear a costume, but I didn’t. I’m glad I didn’t, in retrospect.
SPEAKING OF, I’m thinking about being a zebra for halloween. You heard it first here. I hope this is okay with everyone. I’m going all out, full body, lots of paint, this mask, etc.
And because I’m a college student and Halloween is pretty much a week-long affair here, I’ll probably default to the hamburgler. I did it last year, and it was probably my favorite ever. Look guys, it’s almost October, it’s fine that I’m talking about this. I hope.
ANYWAY, I HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR YOU TODAY!
about a year ago, (or so? i think?) i made a playlist full of songs that reminded me of the good old days (I’m only 19, so the good old days are pretty much…. 2-4 years ago.) Well, I was listening to it a week or so ago and I tweeted about it and Tsuru was all, “yo, post that!” It’s almost 200 songs long. so. I revised it! and I made this .zip for you! I know it wont be applicable to everyone’s lives, but I consider most of these songs to be timeless. I always love them. I never got tired of them, overplayed it, associated it with shitty new fads, etc. It’s just all what I consider to be awesome stuff. It pretty much spans my indie-rock lifetime, which I’d say began about halfway through middle school (…right after that Good Charlotte phase…) and I hope some of these tunes have good times and lovely memories tied to them for you all too.
