Yes my musical taste is strongly skewed towards hip hop and pop punk, and I feel no shame in that. I just thought of the ten albums that I can listen to from start to finish and enjoy every song, and ranked them in order of how frequently I have them playing though my car speakers. From laughing my ass off at The Lonely Island, to blasting N***s in Paris and Walk, I really enjoyed all of these albums.
My top tracks of the year, in no order:
blink 182 - After Midnight
Lupe Fiasco - The Show Goes On
The Black Keys - Lonely Boy
Yellowcard - With You Around
Wiz Khalfia - Fly Solo
Tinie Tempah - Till I'm Gone
Arctic Monkeys - She's Thunderstorms
All Time Low - Do You Want Me (dead)
Gym Class Heroes - Stereo Hearts
The Lonely Island - Jack Sparrow
Jay-Z and Kanye West - N****s in Paris
Foo Fighters - Walk
so I can't help it I really enjoy the new ATL album
i dont want to call it a guilty pleasure because I don't even feel bad about it!!!
I have been into the band ever since i picked up the put up or shut up ep in like, 2006 and saw them at warped but yeah new one should blow them up pretty huge, thats awesome they made it to #4 on billboard!
i'm stoked to see them at warped :D
ok so my favorite record to come out so far this year is New Found Glory-Not Without a Fight
it is cool to see a band that hasn't tried to change or anything. Especially NFG because they have been around since the blink days, and still seem to be the same fun loving, humble guys. And the record, it is like a step forward to me. Still the same NFG soul to it, with a bit more progressive on the lyrical aspect.
Happy for this band and I hope i get to see them again soon
lately, i have been listening to some fantastic music. and i just wanted to share these things
first of all THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM is probably my favorite band right now. both the '59 sound and Sink or Swim are amazing albums. i am really digging the style, and the two albums are very different from each other but still quite solid. checkkk them out if you get a chance!
also, i have been rocking out to some old stuff.......get up kids-four minute mile, brand new-deja entendu, juliana theory-emotion is dead, and death cab-plans. alll amazing albums and fantastic ways to reflect on a crazy year.....
ps folie a deux december 16th, maybe the album of the year...heard a soundclip and was blown away, nothing like the FOB your used to....
please please please go vote in the election
i know in most states early voting has already started in NC for sure
this is a great way to beat the lines on election day and make sure your vote counts
I am voting for Obama/Biden this year and I really believe this is the most important election we have had in quite some time....so please get out there and VOTE, even if its not for Obama, this generation of kids needs to get involved in politics so that our generation can live a better life and we can PROGRESS into the future!
Also don't just vote for president, make sure you research all candidates, like if there is a US Senate seat, governer, and state house/senate, these candidates are more relevat to you than the president, so do your research and be an educated voter and practice your right to VOTE!!!
i decided im gonna start blogging an album i have been listening to that day. just whatever album speaks to me that particular day for whatever reason. And a few standout tracks on the album that I love. Any album from any time, just whatever suits me for that day. So anyone that checks it out, cool, let me know what you think about it. starting with today......
Jimmy Eat World-Chase This Light
its a great album from one of the best alternative bands ever. just full of great songs, with fantastic lyrics, and some fast, upbeat catchy tunes along with some great ballads as well. Just does a great job of providing a soundtrack to a young adult going through changes in his/her life, without trying to be more than just an honest record for anyone to enjoy. Jimmy eat world rocks because they dont try to put on an image of "emo" or whatever all these other bands are doing, they just make music they are passionate about. Favorite songs on the album are Let It Happen, Chase This Light, and Big Casino.
been a crazy summer.
seen some awesome shows!!
fob, +44, TAI was breathtaking. one of the best i've ever seen.
plus i got to go with my girl. which made it twice as amazing.

nervous/excited about the big move.
dont you know who i think i am?
that theres someone out there who feels just like me
well today is a rainy day here. its pretty chilly for april too. but i am feeling optimstic. for many reasons. for one, tomorrow i get to go see jack's mannequin with some of my best friends, which i am super stoked about. also, i am close to getting a new job at the mall, which will be pretty kickass. the best though, is how things are going with my wonderful girlfriend. it seems like we are moving in a very positive direction again after a couple of bumps in the road. she is so incredible to me and i am very happy that things are well again. i am getting to spend more time with her latley, and will be able to hang out with her a lot once stupid school gets over. which i am so ready for. but yeah. everything is fine...ready for that show!! self reminder: write about the JM show next time...so i will
well until then,
