Happy 22nd Birthday, Definitely Maybe!
The album is terrific. Looking forward to hearing the songs live soon.
It's not enough that I'm just happy to be going to a movie, I have to like it too?
I can't imagine the formula will be markedly different here, so I'm expecting lots of yuks and smirks and an...
I enjoy explosions as much as the next guy, but I thought the first Avengers flick was a loud, annoying dud. I've even been a fan of a few of the individual films, but there was just something about...
April 23 - Manic Street Preachers @ Webster Hall
May 20 - TV on the Radio @ Kings Theatre
May 21 - Primal Scream @ Warsaw
June 1 - Ride @ Music Hall of Williamsburg (if I can get tickets on...
If Ride wasn't playing in NYC this June I'd be feeling a lot worse about skipping the festival than I am right now. For many reasons 2013 was the pinnacle for me, and I don't know that I'll make it...
Replace "Blur" with "Arcade Fire" and you've pretty much described how I feel about everything they've released post-Funeral. Personally, I think the two songs we've heard so far are great. I may not...
Blur finally posted an official link to the new track.
Leaked track ahead of tomorrow's full-album show.
Well, not just. I mean they cook and clean and whatnot. Amirite*?
*I'm not right.
It can't feel good to get reamed by Amar'e Stoudemire. Nothing he said is wrong, but it's not like he's got the track record to give credible lessons on how to win basketball games.
I'm in, and I've invited my wife because I'm a great guy (and because she asked.)
1. The Charlatans - Modern Nature
2. Bjork - Vulnicura
3. Sleater-Kinney - No Cities to Love
We got a couple of things framed over the weekend, including this poster from A Night for Jon Brookes: The Charlatans and Friends at the Royal Albert Hall. It was an incredible night, and I'm so...
Jamie's enthusiasm notwithstanding, I think Gorillaz is still under wraps until next year. 2015 should be interesting, though, regardless of what Damon gets into.
A bunch of conspiracy weirdos on a friend's profile seem to think there's more to New York Gov. Cuomo's emergency travel ban than just public safety during a blizzard.
There's a lot of this...
The Knicks and Nets are so fucking awful this year, all All-Star events scheduled for Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center should be moved to Rucker Park and the West Fourth Street courts.
I heard this the other day and rather liked it.
The Terminal 5 show is the reason I'm not bothered trying to see them play a festival set somewhere. I'm not a huge fan of the venue, but hopefully they'll go longer than they'll get to at Coachella...
The new Charlatans album, Modern Nature, is streaming on the Guardian website and YouTube. It's quite good too, maybe their best since Telling Stories.
I'll definitely try to make it out for Primavera one of these days; it's not going to happen this year, though.
Whatever Damon Albarn is up to in 2015. Blur would be nice. Gorillaz. Good/Bad/Queen. I'll be stoked for whatever. Especially Blur.
Rachel Goswell has been posting studio photos on Instagram over the past week or so. They're striking while the iron is hot.
The NYC show was absolutely brilliant. I took my 12-year old daughter...
Cheers to Tom Servo for the awesome Secret Santa loot! It arrived on Xmas Eve, but I was out of town and didn't make it over to the post office until this afternoon. Truly wonderful stash of British...
That's the spirit.
Very happy it arrived in time. Let me know when you try the recipe. But it's probably best to check with your physician first.
I haven't received anything yet. I sent my Secret Santa package out last week at the same time as I sent separate packages to two different family members in California, and they both got theirs on...
The only reason I wouldn't go with Curry is that the Warriors are doing it as a team above all else, and I'm always wary of singling players out when just about everyone is firing on all cylinders....
1) What is your favorite color?
2) What is your T-shirt size?
3) What is your favorite animal (if you want something with an animal on it)?
Still crushed they canceled their tour this year. I had tickets to see them at the Warsaw, a small venue in Brooklyn.
Shit, I saw they'd announced a show here but didn't realize it was going to be their last. Sold out.
I definitely want the vinyl, but that's ridiculous. I'm waiting to see if it turns up on Amazon or Newbury or somewhere they might be a bit more gentle.
I've got both Angles and Comedown Machine, but the band's own seeming lack of enthusiasm about either has made it hard for me to dig in too deeply. But "You Only Live Once" (YOLO?!?!?) off First...
I'm skipping Governors Ball and putting that money toward a vacation with my daughter to England over the summer, so I'm definitely hoping for something from Albarn in a smaller setting. He played as...
Have a swell birthday, birthday friend!
I dislike Times Square so much that I don't see myself turning up for any of this.
I'm actually just changing the ink cartridge in my favorite pen. We're pretty low on the publishing totem pole and a couple of neurotic New Yorkers to boot, so anything more expensive or powerful...
Trying to remember if the picture of the horses on the wall was 3D before the incredible spice combinations at Mission Chinese melted my brain.
Breaking Bed-Stuy - Someone's crush rendered in yarn spotted an hour ago just a few blocks from my apartment.
Same thing happened to me with Broadcast. Very disappointing.
Same here. We'd already tentatively planned to be over before finding out about the show, but that definitely made the decision even easier.
I think I'm seeing Toy at Glasslands on October 10. And then the following week in London I've got Suede at the Garage and the Charlatans' tribute to Jon Brookes at the Royal Albert Hall.
I'm not sure we'll ever know.
sonofhal and I caught a 30th anniversary screening of Wild Style the other night followed by a Q&A with Charlie Ahearn. Pretty great.
I'd imagine being whored out to creepy septuagenarians would speed up that process at a terrifying rate.
I've got a vinyl copy of Pet Sounds signed by Brian Wilson that I'm quite fond of, and also an original game board of the Beatles' Flip Your Wig from 1964, which is extremely goofy looking. They're...
Bryan and Greg decimated my remaining list, so hats off to you fellows. And everyone else, too. Loads to sift through.
In her defense, there's no reason not to be on the lake right now.
