"With_Teeth"

Like I stated before, I had liked the first song which leaked off the above record, "The Line Begins To Blur". On Tuesday night this week, the entire record leaked here on the net - and I was able to get ahold of it yesterday thanks to my friends Eric & Chris. Nine Inch Nails were always the kind of band (to me) who put out records which I would buy > listen to once or twice > put away > & end up only liking two or three good songs. My favorites of theirs have always been: "Burn", "Dead Souls", "The Perfect Drug" (some soundtrack songs), "We're In This Together Now", "Into The Void", "March Of The Pigs", "S.I.N.", "Get Down Make Love", etc - there are a few more. I've heard their records, but I've never really been that into them. Well, now thats changed. I really like "With_Teeth". A lot. I've listened to it 3 times now in the 11 hours I've had it on my computer. Its beautiful, industrial-sounding pop music at it's best. Every single one of these 13 tracks are great in their own aspect. There isn't a bad composition on here. I really respect Trent Reznor. I can see why so many people look up to him. He is like the Brian Wilson of his genre. Did I mention Grohl drums on here to add to it? Anyway, I'll stop ranting and raving about this record, but if you dig nine inch nails - you should really read this article my friend Ian (localpanda210) had published in The Depaulia. It's a really great read, and will give you an idea of what the new album sounds like. "With_Teeth" is out a week from Tuesday.

Thanks to Ryan, I also heard about 5 new songs off the upcoming Oasis disc, "Don't Believe The Truth", which is due out 5/30/05. So far, I like what I hear. I will reserve judgement for the full record, but "Let There Be Love" is really good, as well as "Mucky Fingers".

Also, the new Foo Fighters song hit radio today, "Best Of You" - from their upcoming disc, "With Honor" due out 6/14/05. It's really catchy, and has that simple Foo-sound to it. Its really grown on me these past few hours. I think I took in too much new music today, but I had nothing better to do anyway. Hehe.

Last night, I went over to Joel's parents house for dinner w/out Kelly (or as I'm now calling her, "The Attachment"...). She had to go to some Mud Hens game w/ some work associates, so she couldn't join us. Awww.... too bad. We had steak, but I got the smallest piece, and I was still hungry when we all got done. Oh well. Then, his mom trimmed up my hair a bit, and we headed out. Came home, and then around 1145-ish had the brilliant idea to order a pizza to go pick it up. I called, placed an order for a large ham (my fave) - and they were closing at midnight, so I just left right after I ordered it. Got there at like 1153, and they hadn't even put it in yet. The one guy there was all apologetic to me & said it would be "on-the-house". Cool, I thought. Thats $8 in the pocket. Well, I was off in my own world, and about 9mins later - he hands me this small-ass, mini single ham pizza. I'm all like (to myself). By this time, the guy was shutting everything down - and I didn't want to be the asshole to bitch about a free pizza that was made the wrong size. He seemed like a cool guy, altho he was ranting and raving about Slipknot being played on the radio or something tonight, like I'd care about that. Yeah man... "way cool!" Ha. Anyway, I just took it home, ate it - and I was still hungry when I finished, but I'm giving up for the day. I'll eat tomorrow. I think I have some pretzels around here somewhere if I really need 'em.

Tonight, I'm going w/ ginalvsbnl, pumpknguril (maybe, if I get ahold of her), zelda27gg, & washmylove to see Flickerstick in Hillsdale, Michigan. I emailed the band's tour-manager for permission to tape & this was his response:

--------------------------------------------------------------
i'll check with the guys and their manager and let you know
derrick
--------------------------------------------------------------

That was like Monday. So far, nothing. Damn it. Not that I really care anyway, I just want to tape - cuz I enjoy it. Plus, I think everyone I'm going with would be happy to have a recording since I have the gear to do it with. I'm going to email one more time & ask. I found out yesterday The Burning Brides are playing Detroit tonight in St. Andrews. Fuck. They only come around here maybe once a year, but I already made plans, and I'm not going to break them. I'll have to see them some other time. They are only opening, so it will most likely only be a 40min set compared to their 60-70 headlining slot. They are opening for The Black Keys? I've never heard of them. But, the Burning Brides rock - and tonight is going to be no exception.

Job (or lack there of) update: Remember that lawfirm I interviewed at? Most of you know this already (having asked me), but turns out - they hired some black lady in at $6.50/hr. Ha! Fuck that. I'd rather stay unemployed than make that!!! So yeah... they didnt hire me I guess cuz I was asking too much? Too bad. I'm still applying at other jobs - like the one I applied today for is for a help desk position, part-time (30hrs a week) - $16/an hour... m > f... I hope I get it. I got a decent tax return, but that will only last me so long......

later.


i have headphones on.

Thanks for the caption "I have headphones on" Hahahaha. Anyway, Pretty Hate Machine still owns all. "Industrial-sounding pop music at it's best" I don't know, I guess maybe, possibly. Eh. Yeah 6.50 an hour these days ain't much, I'd like to think my time is worth more than that. Quick question, in your boot..err Audio Engineering circles, have you come across anyone with recordings of Audioslave's latest tour, this time around they're doing covers of Rage and Soundgarden songs, I can't wait to see them.

Whenever you say Toledo, I think of Klinger from M.A.S.H.

Dewey you're the cutest guy I "know" in Ohio, of course you're the only guy I "know" in Ohio. And while I promised myself I wouldn't say anything because it's really none of my business and because Stein would freakin' KILL ME for saying anything, I feel like I must say something. You have limp hair, not limp in the sense it's unhealthy, it's just that it's always so flat against your head. What kind of products do you use? I know, I'll shut up now. But you know what, now that that's off my chest I feel so much better. (: Hope you aren't like offended or anything, because I would feel bad. Just remember I'm an ass so pay no attention to me. Feh. With that I leave you to attack the rum and raisin and dulce de leche, hagen daaz pints in the freezer.

Good job. You can use bittorrent. I have the mp3s from the new album but I'd really rather show some respect for the band and buy the cd on the official release date.

hi.

i am emailing you because i am interested in making a live tape of the flickerstick concert this thursday night in hillsdale, michigan. i am unsure of what your taping policy is, but i wanted to check with you first in regards to this.
i use external mics w/ a stand - and would gladly hook the band up with a copy, if they'd like.
and just to let you know, i have no intentions on selling this in anyway, just to share with fans for free...

please let me know! thanks so much!

"We're having problems with the sound system"? What kind of response is that? I'd say tape if you want, but it might be a waste. I like how Brandon said that the label wouldn't like it...they're on a fuckin indie label. I like Flickerstick, but sometimes they need to get over themselves.

He was that way when I saw them in '01. It's like "dude, you're band is good, but not *that* good."
