Here’s One You Might Not Have Heard
A man walks into a used CD store (let’s say Ella Guru for example) and walks out empty handed. Yes kiddies, you read that right! For some reason Ella Guru’s selection of “Just In” stuff was much smaller than in the past and I didn’t see anything that I was interested in purchasing. I did see REM’s Green (which was a cd lost last year), but someone I know must own this and be willing to let me archive it (hey, I did purchase it once). I also saw the new Black Rebel Motorcycle Club release called Howl, but after listening to it in the store I realized that I didn’t like it.
btw- Why didn’t someone call me out for not mentioning that The New Pornographer’s latest CD Twin Cinema dropped last Tuesday and I failed to mention it? I’ll respect you more if you bust my chops occassionally. I might not call you in the morning, but I’ll respect you nonetheless.
Let’s just say we should have taken first place, but because we didn’t have the cajones to “Go Big Or Go Home” on the final question we finished in third place.
I blame the clusterfuck that was Raging Burrito last night for our miscalculation. It’s far too long of a story to detail here, but it has to do with poor service, confusing beer pricing (or more accurately signage for beer pricing), etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
My Return To Live Music
You may remember back in May when I blogged about going The Earl to see British Sea Power? Remember how awesome I thought A Fir-Ju Well was that night?
Tonight you have the opportunity to see just how smart I am. A Fir-Ju Well is the headlining act at The EARL in East Atlanta tonight. Doors open at 9:30pm, so that means that this old man will be heading home for a PowerNap prior to going out tonight.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
