Snake Eyes



Whoa.
If you feel like shit, this post is for you.
Well, I'm only 5 hours into it, but today is already the absolute pits. I had one of those world-crashing-down-upon-you moments during which I obtained a sudden insight into the minds of those baddies in movies like Snake Eyes or Spellbound who realize their devilish lil' plans have fallen to parts and they opt to turn the gun on themselves than to face the long, hard road towards redemption. Now, I don't own a gun nor do I want to kill myself, but I do now understand better that myopia. So what's a boy in da corner to do? Well, blog, I guess, so we can wash one another in the soapy bubbles of chill tunes and flittering melodies... Go panoramic, baby!



Now, I don't know what the general mood about Electrelane is, but personally these folx play that brand of indieness I just can't enough of--chugging harmonies, slick grooves, and a drummer who boasts a PhD in philosophy from Oxford. Ahh, why do these bands only seem to come from the UK?!?! The lasses have a new album out, No Shouts, No Calls, which is less angsty than their last album, the delightful Axes, but no less challenging to anyone looking for insta-pop gratification (besides "To the East", all the songs on this album deserve more than just an easy listenin'). So here are two gemeralds that I feel capture the general sense of the album, which is that of an emotional gradient. Also, since we're already on the British indie rock tip, here's another jem from one of my favorites, Quickspace.

Electrelane-Cut and Run [alt link]

Quickspace-Swisher



Engaging in a bit of internet narcissism yesterday, I came across the Dutch blog Camping Disco who, on mandaag, was boasting an extended remix of the banging The Who song "Eminence Front." Since mijn nederlands is niet zo goed, it took about 20 minutes of reading one dinky paragraph to deduce that this blogger had no idea who did this remix or its origins (it ain't on discogs). But it only took a minute of listening to realize that IT OWNS! Slow synths, sexy vocal, solid groove. I'm in love.

The Who-Eminence Front (Extended Remix)



And now to end with a bit of regression. Here are two beautiful songs to give up to off of Raymond Scott's Soothing Sounds for Babies collection.
I wrote this in a crib.

Raymond Scott-Tempo Block
Raymond Scott-Little Miss Echo

Hoe komt het dat je wat Nederlands verstaat? :)
Dit is alleszins een van mijn favoriete blogs :p

Weekends to people ig2tmean that they can have a two-day wowgold4europe good rest. For example, people [url=http://www.gameusd.org ]gameusd[/url]can go out to enjoy themselves or get meinwowgold together with relatives and friends to talk with each storeingame other or watch interesting video tapes with the speebie whole family.
Everyone spends agamegold weekends in his ownmmofly way. Within two days, some people can relax themselves by listening to music, reading novels, or watching ogeworld films. Others perhaps are more active by playing basketball, wimming or mmorpgvip dancing. Different people have different gamesavor relaxations.

Sometimesgamersell I go to the library to study or borrow some books to mmovirtex gain much knowledge. I also go to see various exhibition to broaden rpg trader my vision.
