So yeah, I’m thinking about expanding this blog to include other things BESIDES music. Like, movies, art, humour, video games, etc. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while because I don’t think I post on a frequent enough basis with this blog, so having more things to blog about would increase my output.
My average hits per day has been steadily declining as well. I get around 100 views per day now, and only have 26 people who’ve subscribed to the blog updates. I want to thank those amazing guys and gals for taking the time to visit this blog.
I’m not sure if I’ll just ditch this blog and start the new one, or try to transfer all these posts over (which would take forever). If you’ve got any advice, hit me up using the contact buttons over in the sidebar :)
Here’s some cool music videos, so this post won’t be completely useless.
BASEMENT JAXX – “FEELINGS GONE (FEAT. SAM SPARRO)
THE TEMPER TRAP – “SCIENCE OF FEAR”
PATO POOH – “FOLLOW ME”
ANIMAL COLLECTIVE – “MY GIRLS”

In any case, here are some random favorites for this week.
ROBERT FRANCIS – “JUNEBUG” Genre: Alternative
“I remember everything. That was love I could not keep. You were beautiful then. I’m still in too deep.”
WAITING FOR EVANGELINE – “SYSTEM MALFUNCTION” Genre:Rock

OMFG!!! LOST IS LIKE, THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER IN THE HISTORY OF AMAZING THINGSS!!!
(waits for you to leave this page…)
Sorry about that.
Anyway, on to serious business. I won’t bore you to tears going into details about my inner anguish at the fact that the series finale of Lost is tonight. Instead I’ll share with you just one of the many reasons why this show is so dear to me: The soundtrack.
Mmmm…absurdity, it’s delicious to my ears ;)
The mastermind behind the haunting and beautiful music of Lost is composer Michael Giacchino.
I’m not very good at providing flowery descriptions of songs or anything. I like to let music speak for itself. In this case, there’s a whole lot of it. Over the years, the music of Lost has been released as a series of soundtrack albums, with each album corresponding to a season of the show. Now, instead of posting a bunch of videos or music players for each song I like, I went ahead and put my favorite of these soundtrack albums (Season 3) into one playlist, along with my personal Lost favorite, “Life and Death”, at the end.
So go ahead! Listen to as little, or as much, as you want to.
WATCH the series finale of LOST tonight at 9pm EST on ABC!!!
Thank you :]
The madness continues. Here are some random favorites for this week.
“All my friends said you’d break my heart.”
AIRSHIP – ALGEBRA Genre: Alternative
“No, we can’t shake this. There’s something else.”
SUPERBIEN – STEP INTO THE SENSORY BOX Genre: Ambient
U-N-I – LAND OF THE KINGS Genre: Hip Hop
“No time for sleep, you know it’s a relative of death.”
SHINICHI OSAWA – ELECTRO 411 Genre: Electronic
P.S. – Watch FULL screen for extra seizures…
Okay, so maybe I’m a little early, but I’m in full summer mode now that finals are over and school is out. So I’ve been searching far and wide (kinda) to find some cool songs to blast obnoxiously (not really) out of my car stereo on my way to the beach this summer. Here are some early favorites.
PASSION PIT – SLEEPYHEAD
FRENCH HORN REBELLION – BEACHES AND FRIENDS (HEY CHAMP REMIX)
CHILDISH GAMBINO – BITCH, LOOK AT ME NOW
PHOENIX – LASSO (TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB REMIX)
FOALS – THIS ORIENT
Hopefully this will be a good summer for music. Leave me suggestions!

“The Boxer” comes out on June 21st, 2010.
★ YOUNG LEGIONNAIRE
Young Legionnaire recently released their first song to the masses, via their facebook page. The track is titled “Colossus”, which I think is a pretty accurate description of the track itself. Gentle and melodic at the start, the sense of urgency builds up as the song moves forward until it is finally released in the form of precise chaos during the song’s final minute. Can’t wait to hear more from these guys.
