"Not tonight, not tonight."

The Gaslight Anthem. One of the two reasons why I almost regret not going to the Southside festival.



It is great, all of this
Or just what might have been
Where we could take a seat at the bar with the other broken heroes

We can dance if we want to.

Wanted to post this wicked deep analysis today, to revive the reading journal category.
But that gotta wait until tomorrow, cause the inscrutable ways of the mighty internet have led me to Men Without Hat's "Saftey Dance" video. The opposite of deep. Or good taste. But screw that - it's fun!

Downturn.

Cars in their coral,
awaiting their last drive.
A storefront sale
of hopes and hoaxes.
Slashed prices
too big to fail.

Heavy Cross.

While I had an actual, non-music related reason to post The Gossip's Listen Up video last week, today I'm just going to post their new video because it's new. And cool.



A note on horrid commenting on the net: A Stereogum (where I got the video from inicially) commenter posted this gem:

All joking aside, would this girl be remotely popular if it weren't for her obesity and lesbian-ness?

To quote my girlfriend this weekend: Ah, the voice! Sadly enough, he was one of the nicer commenters, even when considering a certain tendency towards (odd) irony.


(Maybe I should introduce a "Gossip Monday" category..)

Don't Be A Fool Like the Rest of Us.

In class today this really cool video by the Gossip was referenced and it was completely appropriate and in context. Sometimes I really like my degree program.



It's shot in Portland, OR, by the way.

Hungry?

Then just take a look at how tabloids and other outlets of the old media (in this case the German media, but sadly I'm sure this is no different in other "developed" countries..) treat the victims of the recent airplane crash.
Die Opfer des Todesfluges at BILDblog
And this seems to be standard operating procedure, not an exception to otherwise spotless journalism. The coverage of the shooting in Winneden was even worse.
I kinda lost my appetite.

First Weekend in My Life.

This weekend, with all its highs and lows and mids, was pretty much perfect. And sometimes any given day can feel like the first day in your life.
