Friday Jabber

Happy Friday the 13th! Waking Life was very in­ter­est­ing an­i­ma­tion in­deed. at times the di­a­logue (in­deed for most of the mid­dle part of the film) was heavy-hand­ed time­less phi­los­o­phiz­ing, stuff that is per­ma­nent­ly asked and nev­er an­swered. it was damn trip­py to watch though. to­day i have meet­ing ga­lore. and now:

The Friday mp3.

to­day the Friday mp3 is brought to you by The Shins. These guys are from Tucson, AZ and at first I didn’t dig them too much be­cause I thought all of their songs sound­ed like they were stoned. They grew on me how­ev­er, their har­monies re­mind me of clas­sic coun­try and blue­grass mu­sic, but what strikes me most is their abil­i­ty to sound like a dif­fer­ent band with each song, Sort of like the Union Underground, but not goth. Caring is Creepy in par­tic­u­lar I think could have been eas­i­ly pro­duced by Robert Smith over in Bonny Britain. So with­out fur­ther adieu I give you New Slang.
