Muse pulls a fast one on Italy



"So Muse was asked to lip synch for an Italian TV show. They did, but put their lead singer Matt behind the drum set and the drummer stood in as the lead singer. Pretty funny. In the interview at the end you can hear the drummer Dominic referring to "our drummer Matt". I wonder how many people in the audience picked up on what just happened."

Beach House


This song is incredible. Def my favorite of the moment (means a lot considering Thom Yorke, Chromeo, Midnight Juggernauts and others JUST released new material.... Julian Casablancas of The Strokes also released the first single off his new solo album but unfortunately it sucks so I'm not even going to mention that one) .

Beach House - Gila mp3

Beach House is currently supporting Grizzly Bear on their North American Tour. They very recently signed to Sub Pop and are expected to have a new album out early 2010.

Spoon - Got Nuffin EP


I just got my hands on this EP and it I am now even more stoked for the new Spoon record (due Spring 2010 I believe) then I was before. Check out "Got Nuffin" below... There is a song called "Stroke Their Brains" on the EP that is even better.. You'll have to find that one on your own (or hit me up and I might help).

Travis Louie


Uncle Six Eyes - Gordon six eyes lived in his parents basement until his six eyes became highly fashionable and his anger at the outside world had subsided to a level of extreme indifference. By the time it was safe for him to emerge from the cellar and experience the outside world, his brothers and sisters had all grown up and married. He now had many nieces and nephews, who loved their Uncle Six Eyes. They all marveled at his ability to move all six of his eyes in different directions at once. They wished they had six eyes, . . . instead of the boring, single eye they each had on their shiny, bald heads, . . .just like their parents.



Guess Who -
At only 3 feet in height, Sam is forced to carry around a folding stepladder so he can reach things. Sam likes to sneak up on his victims and cover their eyes. He then whispers in a very convincing woman's voice, enticing them to turn around. Usually they are frightened by what they encounter and faint into unconsciousness. At which time, he cross-dresses his victims, . . .often in evening wear, affixing crooked wigs to their heads and miss-matched high heels to their feet (usually 2 left feet), and places them in uncomfortable locations; usually public places like train stations or bus terminals, where they may be seen by as many people as possible.


Morley F Hedge - He came from under the Earth, . . . a family in a London suburb discovered his feet sticking out from under a hedge. when they woke him up he decided to stay with that family for a little while and really fixed up their garden (he was quite handy in the garden) One day when they went off to a picnic, they came back and he was gone, . . . all they found was a large hole that led to a tunnel, . . . despite the temptation to follow the path of the tunnel system it connected to, . . . they simply let it be.



Reginald Whiskers McPherson - Reginald could hold his breath for over an hour and crack open oyster shells on his chest. He loved eating catfish and preferred single-malt Scotch. He had an unusual gait (his arms flailed a bit and he shuffled his feet like an unbalanced penguin) Despite his repulsive body odor, he was the most popular professor during his tenure at Cambridge. His inventions and discoveries garnered him great fame, great wealth, and a knighthood. Always a laugh, he was constantly surrounded by women and rarely slept alone. This bristle-faced lothario was the envy of the entire continent. The English catch-phrase for having a good time became " Who's having the life of Reggie now!? " His entire adult life seemed to be one great moment after another, . . .and he laughed and laughed, . . .invented and achieved, . . .and laughed, . . .and continued to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks, while having possibly the best time that anyone had ever had in the entire history of the world! One good time led to another , . . . and another , . . .and another still. Until one day Sir Reginald dropped his timepiece, . . .and when he bent down to pick it up, he spontaneously combusted!! All that remained recognizable on his pile of ashes, were his whiskers and his shoes


Frank - Frank likes people, . . . when he finds someone that he really likes, . . . he follows them around. He once followed a man for 7 years.


Bill - Bill spends most of his time hiding under other people's beds. When he does not shower, he smells like marshmellows.
