I had an awkward moment of staring at someone who I thought I recognized today. Whenever that happens, I always feel like an idiot.
I was in the line at the post office earlier and there was a guy in there who looked exactly like Alex from All Time Low. Given that their tour schedule runs them through this area around today (I checked), it very well could have been him. He gave me a look, but I think it was because I was looking at him like, "Is that the dude from All Time Low in the post office? In Ellensburg?! What the hell..." This isn't exactly a city people just stop by for kicks. If somebody knows him, they should confirm whether or not this happened or my mind is playing tricks on me.
Random, but I kind of wonder if he recognized me because I tend to talk a lot of shit about his band and their friends. I guess I'm a little critical of the band, but hey -- they have a few pretty good guilty pleasure hooks I think are worth jammin'. Nothing personal? Right?
Perhaps I'll get shit for this, but who cares? I actually like "Sink With Me," the new Taking Back Sunday single everyone truly hates. Something about that drum beat and the way the verses swerve into the chorus really grab me, and I enjoy the song quite a bit. My hopes for New Again are pretty low and I'm sure it will hardly be anything worth celebrating... but at least I like the first single.
I heard an unmastered track from All Time Low's upcoming album. People are pretty excited for this (well, some people are), and the song I heard (produced by Butch Walker) was undeniably catchy... but my teeth ache after hearing it. Maybe once it's mastered it will sound better, but it's pretty ordinary and rather unimpressive. Sucks, too... Butch is usually a mastermind when it comes to producing pop music.
