2009 is going to be an awesome year.
02/09/09 at 12:32 PM by DaveZeroZero
There are so many things going right for me this year and I feel compelled to list them all. Is it a siq brag? No, because almost all of them are happening to you, too, but I can't help but feel that this is going to be one of the best years of my life so far.

1. blink-182 came back last night. I've been waiting for this since, when was it that they went on "indefinite hiatus"? 2004? Anyway, it's been a while and I'm happy to see them back. I can't wait to see the tour.
2. I'm turning 18 in just over a week. Doing cool stuff is going to be so much easier in so little time.
3. I head to college at the beginning of October. It gets off to a great start because the first week is a week of non-stop partying and no lectures. Not only that, but also it's a fresh start, which will be really good considering how my reputation precedes me around here.
4. The Assembly Line is putting out an album tomorrow and it is going to be good. Will it be huge? I hope so. It has that potential.
5. Brand new is putting out a new album.
6. Say Anything is putting out a new album.
7. Manchester Orchestra is putting out a new album.
8. Taking Back Sunday is putting out a new album.
9. blink-182 are putting out a new album.
10. I'm going to a bunch of rad shows this year.
11. I'm finally getting my filthy little hands on a DSLR.
12. New All Time Low album.

I'd just like to let you all know...

That The Assembly Line's album comes out next week (hopefully). It's already been pushed back a week, but I have a copy so that I can get a review of it done. Those of you who read my review of the EP back in the Summer (here) know how much I loved that, but this full-length (entitled Graves Like Oceans) is 14 (yes, I just said FOURTEEN) tracks of sheer brilliance.

I highly recommend that you give them a listen here. When the album drops I'll tell you guys where you can get yourselves a copy.

Tell me what you think.

Song of the Day #7
11/12/08 at 12:12 AM by DaveZeroZero
As much as people on here hate on Mayday Parade, I just can't help but really enjoy this song.

Artist: Mayday Parade
Album: A Lesson in Romantics
Song: Black Cat

Close up camera one
the hero sings in this scene
the boy that gets the girl gets to go home where they get married
but stop the tape,
the sunset still looks fake to me
the hero looks like he can't breathe
the damsel just left everything

you're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
and you're gonna burn the city down right now
whoa whoa
you're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
and you're gonna burn the city down right now
whoa whoa

oh close up camera two
cause the hero dies in this scene
your inspiration is the loss of absolutely everything
and flashback on the girl
as we montage every memory
and we bleed out in the bathroom sink
and we fade out as the soundtrack sings:

you're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
and you’re gonna burn the city down right now
whoa whoa
you're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
and you’re gonna burn the city down right now
whoa whoa

she said get your hands off of my star
it's not your part but all your fault
and this jealous actress has a habit of making things sound way too tragic
get your hands off of my star
it's not your part but all your fault
and this jealous actress has a habit of making things sound way too tragic

and this jealous actress has a habit
of making things sound way too tragic
oh this jealous actress has a habit
of making things sound way too tragic.

you’re like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
you’re gonna burn the city down right now
whoa whoa

you're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
and you’re gonna burn the city down right now
whoa whoa
you're like a black cat with a black back pack full of fireworks
and you’re gonna burn the city down right now
whoa whoa-ahh

and this jealous actress has a habit
whoa

Song of the Day #6
11/10/08 at 10:12 AM by DaveZeroZero
More chasing of girls, more of the infinite songs to sing about it.

Artist - This Time Next Year
Album - A Place For You
Song - Rules of a Ghost Hunt

Wed rip the seams of hearts wed lead, a classic lie or promise ring.
Together we could count the ways how broken hearts collect each May.
Its not unlike you to lie to get through every girl you seem to get to.
I sing this anthem for us today, you'll take her hand; Ill take her breath away.

Hey boy, whats her name?
This is one exception to our past deception.

Chasing skirts on broadway's worst; we used to know the words that worked.
In case we thought we forgot those days, Ill spell those words out anyway.

Hey girl, whats your name?
Ive got a thousand questions full of bad intentions.

You know how, you know how I know you saw that stare?
It was a dead give away, your look was too prepared.
Your eyes, they stare daggers,
but you better keep them shut when bloods in the water
because you know how I play this game;
so prepare your sharpest look with the deadliest aim

Song of the Day #5
11/09/08 at 10:52 AM by DaveZeroZero
I went to a party last night and I was dancing like a god. I also failed to find any play and thus felt that this song was appropriate. Oh, and it's a goddamn awesome song.

Artist: Fall Out Boy
Album: From Under the Cork Tree
Song: Dance, Dance

She says she's no good with words but I'm worse
Barely stuttered out
A joke of a romantic stuck to my tongue
Weighed down with words too overdramatic
Tonight it's "it can't get much worse"
Vs. "no one should ever feel like..."

I'm two quarters and a heart down
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have so I'll write them
So you need them just to get by

Dance, Dance
We're falling apart to half time
Dance, Dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love
If they knew how misery loved me

You always fold just before you're found out
Drink up it's last call
Last resort
But only the first mistake and I...

I'm two quarters and a heart down
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have so I'll write them
So you need them just to get by

Why don't you show me a little bit of spine
You've been saving for his mattress, love

Dance, Dance
We're falling apart to half time
Dance, Dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love
If they knew how misery loved me

Why don't you show me a little bit of spine
You've been saving for his mattress (mattress, mattress)
I only want sympathy in the form of you crawling into bed with me

Dance, Dance
We're falling apart to half time
Dance, Dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love
Dance, this is the way they'd love
Dance, this is the way they'd love
If they knew how misery loved me

Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance

Song of the Day #3
11/07/08 at 08:29 AM by DaveZeroZero
I haven't stopped listening to this song this week and it really strikes a chord with me.

Oh, that and the fact that it's an absolutely awesome song.

Artist: The Graduate
Album: Evergreen EP
Song: Anhedonia (Alternate Version)

In a dark room at the heart of the city
The basement brings a heavy crowd
And I know there's a right way
But I can't stop from getting down
These people are mad
Will they grow up
Why can't I do the same
Why can't I be okay
The style and the grace of a small town

Is there any truth to the recipe
I've been mixing thrills in the right key
But I don't feel right in my skin
So I don't feel anything at all
I leave emotion at the door
Like a desperate boy on last call
No, I don't feel right in my skin
So I don't feel anything at all

There's a bad place in the back of the room
No one moves without a cue
Cause they know there's a right way
Yeah, all the know is getting down
These people are mad
And so am I
Yeah, I caught on
In the nick of time
Before the lights turn on
I can blend into the crowd
Don't come with me tonight
If I said I cared for you I lied

Is there any truth to the recipe
I've been mixing thrills in the right key
But I don't feel right in my skin
So I don't feel anything at all
I leave emotion at the door
Like a desperate boy on last call
No, I don't feel right in my skin
So I don't feel anything at all

Don't come with me tonight
If I said I cared for you I lied
You waste no time tonight
Take me home if it costs your life

Is there any truth to the recipe
I've been mixing thrills in the right key
But I don't feel right in my skin
So I don't feel anything at all
I leave emotion at the door
Like a desperate boy on last call
No, I don't feel right in my skin
So I don't feel anything at all
