Holy Changes, AP.net
02/25/10 at 03:22 PM by mallyland
I haven't been on AP in so long, I don't know where anything is. Oh, well.

Not sure why I'm writing this, except to say, perhaps, that I've removed myself from the world of music news for so long, I feel trepidation upon entering it again. Vulnerable. I know it doesn't make much sense....

The Dangerous Summer
04/24/09 at 10:12 PM by mallyland
Just randomly got a press stream for Reach For The Sun, so maybe I'll change my opinion about them -- so far, I don't understand why everyone's raving about it.

Does anyone have a copy of the lyrics? (Ahem, Blake?)

Key Shaped USB Drives

Key USB by AMT


Besides being asethically pleasing, I love the concept of combing the traditional key with the modern USB. Not only does it bring past+present/future together, it reinforces (for better or worse) the impact technology has on modern society. We don't keep our secrets in locked chests or leather-bound diaries anymore. The key does not open the secret -- the key holds the secret.

Perhaps I'm analyzing this too much. Perhaps it's too late.

How Not To Spend Money
04/11/09 at 09:14 PM by mallyland
I need to be responsible/a budget. Last month I spent $75 on iTunes alone. Wtf?! I've been trying to save money, which for a while I was being really good about, but because I was spending so much of what I wasn't saving, I had to dip into my savings. Also, I've realized that for the most part wanting something is much more fun than having something.

I just bought Taylor Swift's self-titled album (some habits never change). I really like it. After this purchase is when I checked out my "recent purchase historty" on iTunes -- not good.

In other news, I've applied for jobs at both Target and Wells Fargo. Here goes to hoping I get one of them. I'm also looking around for other jobs -- something in child care would be ideal because I enjoy it, and I have a lot of expereince.

I'm happy for Easter tomorrow. I've already seen my Easter basket! Am I the only adult to still receive an Easter basket from their mommy? If so, you other people have crappy mommies!

I am really excited for this -- the songs are turning out to be a lot better than the covers from the Punk Goes series. My favorite so far is The Arrival's cover of "Kiss From A Rose."

Sunny Day Real Estate
03/09/09 at 11:26 AM by mallyland
Mike Kraft's blog about This Day And Age made me want to relive some oldies. Honestly, though, Sunny Day Real Estate isn't really an oldie for me -- I "discovered" the band in '05, learned they were 'way old,' and immediately stopped listening. With Mike's blog, however, I thought to myself. "fuck it," and immediately downloaded their album Diary off iTunes. Good stuff. Jeremy's not a great singer, but the music is great. Also, who knew they were signed to the infamous SubPop? Okay, maybe you did, but I didn't. My 16-year-old sister, who is a Nirvana freak (also on SubPop), even heard of SDRE.

Without further ado, I am going to copy everyone else and embed some SDRE YouTube videos. Enjoy!

If you've forgotten what the early/mid '90s look like (or were unborn/too young), just watch this video:
