I've been thinking about picking up that Magnolia Electric Co. cd. Have you listened to their others? Would you recommend them too? I would recommend you pick up Songs: Ohia - Magnolia Electric Co. first, as to me, that is the definitive Molina album. From there you can file through the other Songs...

I loved Transfiguration of Vincent very much and have been a big fan of M. Ward ever since. Good call posting about him.

I think that Wolf Parade sounding a lot like Modest Mouse would have less to do with how many records MM has sold, and more to do with the fact that Isaac Brock produced their album.

I think you are the first person I've ever heard who liked Ayn Rand. Not that there's anything wrong in that, it just seems to be a rarity. (Me, I've only read Anthem and thought it was piss poor writing.) I'll be honest when I say that The Fountainhead is the only book I liked by her. I've tried r...

I am currently reading Augusten Burroughs new one Possible Side Effects . It's good, but Running with Scissors is still his best. He's always good if you like the "comedic memoirs" thing. Recently read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I had heard a lot about it and was pleasantly surprised b...

As of now I'm going to both Pitchfork and Lollapalooza. Pitchfork because they already have some pretty good bands and Lolla mostly because I know some people and I'll be able to go for free. I love living in this city. If only they didn't deny Radiohead playing in Millennium Park. That would have b...
