Dennis Kucinich– I am proud to call Denis Kucinich my myspace friend. I love Kucinich, I think he’s by far the best candidate, […]

The Slackers

I moved to Brooklyn a couple weeks ago so it’s about time I showed some blog love for a Brooklyn band. And since I have yet to find a job what better band than the Slackers? I think one of the most interesting Slackers albums is 2003’s Close My Eyes. More than typical party-ska Close […]

Spoon

I like Spoon’s new album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga like I like the rest of Spoon’s albums, in small doses. It’s really great catchy music and Brit Daniel’s crisp voice is the perfect complement to the tightly orchestrated parts. The problem is by the end of the album it all starts to sound the […]
