Every time I hear mumford and sons, I wonder how that ever became mainstream.
If my Facebook feed is any indication, goddamn everybody got engaged yesterday.
It's like Dave Matthews Band with more banjo.
And a LOT less weed.
According to my FB feed, recently everyone's either getting engaged/married or they're already popping out babies... Actually, I start to think I'm rather immature for my age when I compare myself to my peers (unmarried and baby-less as I am). Should I be wanting stuff like that, too? *shrug*
Eh, don't worry about "should I want". Just go with what you do want instead. You're at the age where marriages and babies start to happen, but there's no "right" age to do either (as long as the necessary parts still work, in the case of babies). And there's no requirement for them, either. If you're happy as you are now, you're better off than most people anyway. :)
I can't get "Call me maybe" out of my head. It's hard to look right at you baby, but here's my number, call me maybe! It barely makes sense, but it won't leave my brain, argh.
Why did ET have to phone home, they didn't know he was missing? How does ET not have some RFID type thing implanted in case of separation from the rest of the crew?
I saw this news regarding the Grammy Awards:
Mumford & Sons won the night's top award as the Grammys were handed out last night in Los Angeles, while The Black Keys took four awards and Skrillex and Gotye got three each. Toronto rapper Drake took the award for best rap album.I have not heard of any of these artists. This is the first time this has happened and I swear I am not 90 years old.
Actually, I'm pretty sure I've heard of Skrillex. Okay, not completely out of touch with pop culture yet, just really close.
Seriously, listen to damn near any radio station, you'll get at least one of these artists several times a day. Which depends on the radio station.
I love Mumford & Sons and the Black Keys!
Yeah, I don't listen to radio. The closest I get is whatever music gets piped into a store. And a lot of that is 30 years old, which is the stuff I do recognize.
Nice song, though.
A previous Tighten Up.
The Black Keys are pretty damned great, and their sound is something that would fit within any of the past several decades.
You probably heard of Gotye once, but now he's just somebody that you used to know.
Mumford & Sons is well worth your time.
The banjo is a secret weakness of mine.
More banjo incoming!
Matt Bowyer used The Cave as part of the score of a recent gaming session. I have to say my current favorite of theirs is I Will Wait.
I found an old recording of a friend telling a bedtime story at a summer camp. It has zombies, princes, and pilots in it. Best bedtime story I ever heard, and I can't stop laughing while listening to it. Good memories.
I Will Wait is lovely! I am also partial to Holland Road~
/Hahahaha, to quote Elyscape, "I forgot already." Ah well.
My friend has introduced me to Axe Cop. This is the greatest birthday ever.
I've gone from observing that I'd never heard of any of the current Grammy winners to picking up the album Sigh No More.
I like the way things randomly work like that.
Thanks for the links,
balut (I'll probably get some Black Keys before I'm done).
The Black Keys fucking rule
I happen to be listening to them RIGHT NOW (Little Black Submarines).
Apparently, Halestorm has been voted as this year's apex of hard rock & metal:
kerzain is sad. Not Jethro-Tull-kicked-Metallica's-ass-at-the-Grammys sad, but still sad.
TAKE BACK WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT THE TULL!
AND HAVE SOME TULL INSPIRED RAWK!
(With terrible sound encoding, admittedly.)
Finally, some new music that doesn't make me weep for humanity.
Well, they do sometimes play their mandolins very loudly. And I guess some would call the flute a heavy metal instrument.
I think if you look at where Tull started out they do have a valid claim to being an inspiration to a lot of the folkier and progish styles of metal (not-Viking Folk though.) That band I linked, Blood Ceremony have often been compared to Jethro Tull due to their heavy metal flute.
On the radio they said there was a song by Aesop Rock featuring Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and 2 Chainz. Okay, that's surprising, but let's listen. That's obviously Drake on the 2nd verse and the hook, and the guy who says his name is Kendrick Lamar is probably Kendrick Lamar. But that first verse isn't Aesop Rock, is it? No. Eventually I figure out it's a dude named ASAP Rocky. WTF, dude? Adding a "y" to the end of another rapper's name is not - Hanacker suddenly gets distracted while thinking about launching a rap career as Tupacky.
I hate being sick so very much. The symptoms don't even make sense! And why hasn't someone invented a never-ending mug of tea, which magically refills itself?
OtomeGamer the new
OtomeGamer, James Birdsong, many other LPers...
You had to pick Pennywise, didn't you...
Just for that I am putting extra feels in your likes, mister!
I wish they made a show like Dance Moms without the abusive dance teacher.
I love watching children get better at things and achieve goals and all of that because I love seeing kids be happy. I also love dance.
I don't love watching this lady that reminds me eerily of the person I've been raised by for years.
