The Good Old Days

So, it looks like the rule around here is that if you mistakenly check this blog, or some jerk sets it as your homepage and you simply open your browser, you have to post something.

Something.











Just kidding.

I haven't seen most you in years (literally!) and I'm still holding it down here in Bloomington. I work in the School of Fine Arts, and have since June '06, but I'm applying to grad schools right now with the crazy idea that someone would accept me into their MFA program. Applications are due in the next two to three weeks and most schools will make me stand in the corner and wait for a good three months before they even bother to tell me anything. I'll keep you all posted (literally, again) with my news.

As it was usually my thing to tell you all what music I'm digging, here is what made me hot in 2007 (in no particular order):

-Radiohead In Rainbows
-
The Tough Alliance New Chance
-
Of Montreal Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
-
Jens Lekman Night Falls on Kortedala
-
The Field From Here We Go Sublime
-
Battles Mirrored
-
The Besnard Lakes ...Are the Dark Horse
-
Feist The Reminder
-
Animal Collective Strawberry Jam
-
Panda Bear Person Pitch

Honorable Mentions:
-
Kanye West Graduation
-
M.I.A. Kala
-
Pantha du Prince This Bliss
-
Low Drums and Guns

If you want the hook-up for any of these albums, I'd be glad to share. Just like the good old days.

Peace and Happy New Year,

Brad

Whenever Of Montreal makes someone hot, you know there's something wrong with this world... (mmmmm, the eye?)

As per usual, I have not heard of the majority of music you're listening to, unfortunately. I did just get 20 new cds for xmas though from my bro, and am currently enjoying the rapture, lyrics born, cold war kids, and the john butler trio. I'm also listening to the hairspray soundtrack nonstop because it is the best movie ever. I do have a list of music I want to steal from you, including kanye, mia, and others I can't think of right now.

I need music from you, Brad. I'll give you details later, but I usually like a lot of the stuff you do. Except Dan. JUST KIDDING. She sung beautifully. I'm unsure as to whether that was inappropriate or not. Really, I was indifferent to Dan.
