Shun the Non-Believer!

Opinions on New Music

After a few days listen (which, being so busy, hasn't been too much):

Arcade Fire, Neon Bible - another amazing AF CD.
Peter Bjorn & John, Writer's Block - I am really liking it. More so than I thought I would. It is catchy and good.
Chk Chk Chk - Catchy pop...still needing a good listen.
Bloc Party, Weekend in the City - not into it yet, doesnt sound as good as the first CD at first listen. still needing a good listen.
Bright Eyes, Four Winds EP - Sounds good, so far, again, still needing a good listen, but I really like Stray Dog Freedom, so far.

Since I received quite a bit of gift certificatry at the itunes store, please pass on suggestions!! I am awaiting my new laptop arrival and am going to go on a downloading frenzy when she comes. She needs a name. I am leaning towards "Mother Jones." What do you think?

Opinions on the new AIR cd?

Things I am passing on:
The Shins, Whincing the Night Away - I only liked one song from their last album.
The Good, The Bad, and the Queen - all the hype killed it for me.

Donde Estas L'Chaim?

It's the day before my birthday! I've been absent from the blog scene for several reasons.

  1. Boyfriend and Sex takes priority over blogging.
  2. My Grandmother died.

I volunteered at GLAAD today and then I went on a music shopping spree. Here are my purchases now uploading to the jdPod:

Neon Bible by Arcade Fire
Writer's Block by Peter Bjorn and John
Myth Takes by Chk Chk Chk
A Weekend in the City by Bloc Party

Friend Marli sent me some iTunes gift monies, too, so I will have fun spending that.

Bad New Bears, though, My beloved laptop is on death's door and a new one is on the way to replace her. It is a miracle I am using the old girl, now. I do need to keep it short and sassy though, so I have enough life left to get all my files off when the new one comes.
