The new Death Cab record comes out tomorrow. It's hard to believe I have been listening to the them for seven years and now they are on a major label. What to make of it all? Will they stay the same? Will they "sell out"? Does anyone care if they sell out? I guess this is what R.E.M. fans went through about 17-18 years ago.
The new BRMC is out. A very mellow record from what I have sampled. I will purchase tomorrow.
The new New Pornographers record came out last week and has been receiving amazing reviews. I will also purchase tomorrow.
Have you heard the new Franz Ferdinand record? It's exactly what a rock single should be. It's fast, catchy, and gets you excited about the new record and concert.

Apple has sent out invitations via email to selected media outlets announcing a special event on Wednesday, September 7, 2005 to be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
The email features the line, "1,000 songs in your pocket changed everything. Here we go again."
Apple introduced the iPod on October 23, 2001, describing the device as "a breakthrough MP3 music player that packs up to 1,000 CD-quality songs into an ultra-portable, 6.5 ounce design that fits in your pocket."
I wonder what it could be? The iTunes cell phone? A video iPod?

I love how the Dominican gets so much press in this one. Oh yeah, and I can't wait to go back. Last night after the race I was telling Grant (money bags!!!) to make sure and put some cash aside for a place at The Compound a.ka.a Casa del Smitt.
Rachelle and I had to listen to the race in the car because we got stuck at the border and then on I-5 in Everett on our way back from an amzing weekend in Vancouver. It was the most exciting two minutes I have ever spent stuck in traffic and I think the neighboring motorists must have thought we were nuts when we freaked out in the car.
It's amazing that Grant has come so far in such little time. I remember him writing the now infamous letter on the hammock in the D.R. over the course of a couple of days. He was so focused and so serious about his intentions. I on the other hand was more concerned about when the next swell would hit the coast and at what time I would drink my next Presidente. Actually, Grant was also concerned about his next Cerveza as well. Usually the first was at about 11:15 am. But I digress.
Anyway, we are so proud of our buddy and getting there to see him win the last race yesterday was a privilege. Walking with Grant to the back stretch and stable area was like walking with a President or Pope. Everyone, and I mean everyone wanted to shake his hand and congratulate him. Even people he didn't know wanted a piece of him.
Over the past few years I kept telling Grant "If you could win the Mile, that would be like the coolest thing of all time". I just didn't realize it would happen so quickly. What's next, the Derby?
Side note: We are still going to buy the official Cabin Fever horse at some point. If any of you are still interested, please let me know.

So how enjoyable was last night's M's game? Only the most fun I have had all year. Felix is insane.
If I have this figured out correctly Felix will pitchFriday the 26th against the White Sox and Wednesday night the 31st against the Yankees.
I am hoping to go to both games and grab decent seats.
Another good one

I have seen Franz twice and both times they tore the place apart with their strobe rock. Their Showbox show last year was one of the best shows I have seen. Ever. It was Dance Fever all over the place.
On Sale This Weekend:1077 The End presents Franz Ferdinand for two nights at the Paramount - Saturday October 1st and Sunday October 2nd. Opening both shows will be TV On The Radio and Cut Copy. Tickets for these all-ages shows go on sale Saturday, August 20th at Ticketmaster outlets for $30 (plus service charges). See this week's Endmail for another exclusive EndMail Pre-Sale.

First of all, the end of Six Feet Under is very intense and tough to watch due to the complicated emotions every single character is going through after Nate's death. However, the show is still hypnotic and I find myself watching through covered eyes from time to time.
Secondly, The Arcade Fire song that finished the show is one of the bands best songs and deserves to be downloaded from ITunes. I love how mellow it is until it builds up to the group chorus. Uplifting and sad simultaneously.

How many of us drink these? During sports or just relaxing or when we go out.
I know its about time I posted something in here.

First of all, I meant to reply to Dagg's post. Yes, it's awesome. Every episode.
I've been wathing these screen tests on ON DEMAND, but now they are online. The Gary Coleman and Pat Morita clip is great, but I personally like the clip with all the old WWF wrestlers. I need more.
