No, not a commentary on this foggy, tired, late fall Monday. It's the new Tegan and Sara video 'Hell'. I like the tune, haven't made sense of the video yet. Especially of the flower-print-little-house-in-the-prairie-dress-Burqa-esque-thing. But well, here it is:

Hell - Tegan and Sara

Pretty neat nevertheless.

From the Mighty Streets of Freiburg.

Chin Up!
Nice to see that at a tram station on the first day day of class.

The Anti-Beatles.

Last night I saw Monks: The Transatlantic Feedback, a documentary about The Monks, a fairly experimental art garage beat band of 5 GIs. They were designed to be the Anti-Beatles - and their sound blew me away! Active between 1964 and 1967! Beat-Proto-Punk-Heavy-Metal-Noise-Art! Wow.

Lonely for So Long.

This nice new video from Olli Schulz reminds me of my long trip through the night in a Greyhound from San Francisco back to Oregon in 2006. So lonely and yet so wonderful. And I could barely keep myself to singing along to the music I was listening to as well.
The song, 'So lange einsam' is pretty nice as well.

Live Disintegration.

I've spend my last night
strung up and pulled tight, holding out
sleeping proud.

Sadly, Disintegration (along with Stay on My Side Tonight companion Closer) is the last really great song Jimmy Eat World wrote since 2005. The album version features Tony Hajjar (Sparta) and producer Mark Trombino on additional percussion. I'm glad to hear that their teaming up with Mark Trombino again.

My Will Is Good.

The video might be a bit too cute, but the tune is really nice: Port O'Brien's "My Will Is Good". It's going straight on my imaginary autumn mixtape.

A Bear with Chainsaws for Paws Still Loses.

Once again, Jon Stewart is hilarious when angry - and is right. His commentary on the Democratic Super Majority and the mess in congress:
