Chloe Rules!!!


kristen bell geek cover sm24’s Mary Lynn Rajskub graces the cover of Geek Monthly Issue 3. Pick up the issue to read Mary’s thoughts on her character as well as future plans outside of 24. As part of our extensive interview with the actress we talked tech and it turns out that Mary is not exactly as technically savvy as Chloe.

Mark Ronson is the shiznit!

The Coldplay cover is insane.

In March 2006, Ronson released a cover of Radiohead's "Just" as a single. In certain areas it gained major radio play. It was released as part of "Exit Music: Songs with Radio Heads", a full Radiohead covers CD, in April. Ronson's second album, Version, due for release in the UK on April 16, 2007, includes other covers of a diverse selection of rock & pop songs including: Kaiser Chiefs' "Oh My God" (featuring guest vocals from Lily Allen), Coldplay's "God Put A Smile Upon Your Face", Britney Spears' "Toxic", and Ryan Adams' "Amy".

Ronson is due to release a cover of classic The Smiths' track Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before.

Horsey at his best.

The Mariners Are Playing Hardball!

For those of you that don't know, I usually order group Mariner tickets for three or four games in February, before they go on sale to the general public. (Any season ticket holder can do this). However, this year with normal work, school, and the baby, I completely spaced on it.
I would like to order group tickets for 15-20 people for one game. It will be huge fun as always.

Here are the dates I am considering: 4/29, 5/20, and 6/3. I am leaning towards 5/20 at this point. The tickets I buy will be between $7 and $25. Last year we sat closer to the field, which was more fun.
If you are interested, please let me know what dates work for you and how many tickets you might need. Please let me know ASAP because I will try to order tickets Tuesday when I am at the game.

If anyone wants to meet up I will be at these games in my season ticket seats:
4/3, 4/15, 5/12, 6/2, 6/22 (Griffey), 6/26, and 7/30 plus a few more...

Modest Mouse Album Hits #1

A Goonies musical? Tell me it's true!

Bob Barr Flip-Flops on Pot

Thank god a Republican is finally getting the message that this current administration is operating a "big government" policy that takes away too many decisions from the states and inavdes on our civil liberties. Why is the light just now going on? Why has it taken six years?

The You Tube Award Winners!

The lefty from Atlanta better be damn good!

* Rafael Soriano struck out all three Nationals he faced Sunday, lowering his spring ERA to 1.12. He's been lights out this spring, striking out 12 and walking none in eight innings. There are few more dominant relievers in baseball.

Kings of Leon only a week away. They play Seattle in May.

New White Stripes Album in June. This article makes it sound like a very diverse record

The New Son Volt Album is Really Good. They play Seattle tomorrow.

Modest Mouse Returns

The new album has a few pop singles, a few mellow vibe type songs, and of course there a few songs where Isaac yells at you. The cool thing about this album is the musical exploration that is more reminiscent of The Moon and Antarctica, my favorite Modest Mouse record. Parting Of The Sensory is the best track, but there are plenty others. Oh, by the way James Mercer of The Shins sings on a few songs too.

Larry "Bud" Melman has passed away.

A very funny man.

The Flaming Lips Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots album will be a broadway musical!

For the casual Lips fan, this is the album that has Do You Realize, which is one of the best 'make the very best of each day and treasure it' songs of all time. In fact, the song pretty much got me through the first few months after my father passed away.

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize - we're floating in space -
Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize - Oh - Oh - Oh
Do You Realize - that everyone you know
Someday will die -

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize

Eddie and the Cruisers and The Arcade Fire Continued...

A gentleman over at Tornado Slide also felt like the Arcade Fire song sounded very similar to the Eddie and the Cruisers song. He even posts up a couple of youtube videos so you can see for yourself.

The Big Music Post

I've been listening to quite a few bands lately and I figured I should spread the work on what is worth purchasing or downloading.
Where do we start?

The Kaiser Chiefs have a new album out in England that is pretty darn good. There isn't an "I Predict a Riot" in the new batch, but worth getting regardless.

Have you heard of the Fratellis? Maybe not, but they do have a song playing on an ITunes commercial right now. They rock.

The View is worth checking out if you dig The Libertines or the Arctic Monkeys.

CSS(Cansei de ser sexy) is pretty much the coolest dance rock band out there right now. They are from Brasil and sound like a combination of Brazilian Girls, Blondie, LCD Soundsystem, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Of Montreal's new album reminds me of Beck's Midnight Vultures record minus the soul, but plus some new wave and post punk.

Do any of you remember the soundtrack to the Friday Night Lights movie? Explosions in the Sky create all of the instrumental tracks. Their new album is very similar. Kind of like an indie Sigor Ros (or is Sigor Ros indie already?) Dont' know.

You all know I dig Arcade Fire. 'Nuff said.

The Good, The Bad, and the Queen is brit pop super group with Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz), Paul Simonon (The Clash), Tony Allen (Africa 70/Fela Kuti) and Simon Tong (The Verve). The album is very diverse and defies easy description. It's got a bit of The Smiths and The Cure along with Oasis and Blur pop mixed with the Super Furry Animals. Just listen to it.

I am sure many of you have the Cold War Kids record. Simple arrangements similar to Spoon with a bit more blues and jazz mixed in. The lyrics are darker too.

That's all for now. Lots of new tunes to dig on.

CSS-One of my favorite bands right now.

The Harrison Forss Band

Remember a few months ago I posted a video of some 7th and 8th graders playing a PJ song? Here is their first single. Type the password on the right and click 'get file'.

Not bad for some kids. Not bad for adults actually. They sound pretty damn good!

Arcade Fire and Eddie and the Crusiers

How many of you remember the 1983 Eddie and the Cruisers? It was one of my favorite movies as a kid and the John Cafferty Band played the music. They had a big hit from the movie with "On the Dark Side", which I loved. I now realize it sounds like a Bruce Springsteen and John Cougar Mellencamp rip off, but I still dig the song anyway.

About three weeks ago I was listening to the Arcade Fire concert from New York and I thought The Arcade Fire was covering John Cafferty. Instead, the song is listed as a new Arcade Fire song called "Keep the Car Running."

If you are a fan of Eddie and the Cruisers you should check out The Arcade Fire version because I think you will like it too.
