Turn your radio off.

Hi. How have you been? It's been a long time since we last chatted about music and other assorted topics. I've been "away" at my summer job teaching those, who some like to refer to as suckers, but I like to call beginning teachers.

So, what have you been up to? I'm sure Siren Music Festival was fantastic. And how about those Birdmonster shows and Dirty on Purpose's record release gig at Mercury Lounge? Mind blowing, that's what I heard. What's that? Oh, you're going to see Robbers on High Street on Wednesday. No, you're right. They are my favorite summertime band. No, no. I won't be there. Will I be at the Cat Power show instead? No, I'll still be here in Queens listening to Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous Girl" for the upteenth time. Or "Hips Don't Lie." Can't forget that one.

I've realized that I am the snobbiest of the music snobs. I've decided to embrace my snobbery after spending the last month feeling completely cut off from music that provides any aural pleasure. Don't get me wrong; Nelly and Justin are fine in small doses, but I've definitely exceeded my intake of Incubus. I'm feeling the need to reconnect to music that I actually enjoy. I've had Pearl Jam's "Alive" running through my head lately. Maybe the song has become a subconscious anthem as I relive dorm life and look ahead until August when I'll be able to rejoin the music scene. That was a funny comment, huh?



So, yes. I'm looking forward to August. Or at least near August because I might have to leave Queens to follow Sound Team and Cold War Kids around New York. Three shows in three days. I should at least make it to one, don't you think?

Sound Team: Your Eyes Are Liars
Cold War Kids: Pregnant

Thanks to Dan for keeping Indie Don't Dance up and running while I bounce between Queens and the Bronx this summer.

I'll check in again later.

SO SO glad that you posted this. I just saw the Pearl Jam on 7 shows this tour, capped with their stellar Seattle (actually George) show at The Gorge. Unreal. Love em.

How to choose a suitable target in cable and the cabal online alz? You should compensate him by giving him some cabal alz, and then Pvp or PK. Normal monsters; you have to lure a handful of monsters with cabal gold so that switching between them can be easier. There are many benefits to guild in cabal money. When you buy cabal alz, it is not still deal high amounts of damage.
