Hell… I would think that 30 songs would have been enough. That’s okay. I have really just been lazy. Reflecting on my new found adulthood. Back to giving you some music and political videos.

I Blame Coco- How Did All These People Get In My Room?
The Rest- Walk On Water
Los Electricos- Fang

I’m sure everyone has seen the video below already, but if you haven’t take a look.

Another one…

_Clacker Daddy Whacker_

Ok. I’m going to throw out a few words and you just think of the first thing that comes to mind:

cherry bombs




Seriously, olives and GIN?? and what the hell is a “Clacker Daddy Whacker”?

BUT GODDAMNIT doesn’t it make it a shit-ton of fun to sing and be healthy! It’s a good thing to keep up on fellas, be sure to check yourselves on a regular [daily] basis (or have a partner/friend/neighbor/favorite barista/librarian, etc).

NOTE: For best results it would behoove you not use the term “eyelid skin” at any point when asking for assistance with your checkup.

(video was made by the folks at Universal Post. check out their stuff. cool UT kids.)

So, I am 30 now. I made it. I didn’t die. So, in honor of this momentous occasion… here are 30 songs. A real hodge-podge of stuff.

1.Craig Mack- Flava In Ya Ear (I remember having the cassingle of this… damn I’m old)
2.The Happy Hollows- Monster Room (Cool indie pop from Los Angeles)
3.Billy Idol- Sweet Sixteen (Man, being 16… such a long time ago. Although, I remember 15 better than 16 for some reason)
4.Of Montreal- Du Og Meg (Saw these guys in Los Angeles. Good show, but Kevin Barnes has some interesting costumes…)
5.Malcolm Mclaren and the World Famous Supreme Team- Hey DJ (I am getting my turntable fixed right now)
6.The Tages- It’s In A Dream (Good ol’ 60’s swedish psychedelica)
7.The Good Life- O’Rourke’s, 1:20 AM (I got this album from my friend, Art, when I lived in NYC. He didn’t like it. I loved it. I listened to it a lot when I was in Detroit for some reason)
8.Hollywood Holt- Hollywood(Mark my words… this guy is gonna be huge… huge. Annoyingly huge.) Check out the video for this track, too…

9.Weezer- Only In Dreams (I used to play this on the jukebox in Splendid (my old bar in Greenpoint that I frequented more than one night a week) all the time)
10.Stevie Wonder- Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing (You can’t have a list of 30 songs without at least one Stevie Wonder track)
11.The Strokes- Take It Or Leave It (I didn’t like this band when they first arrived on the scene. Probably because I was heavily into jungle/drum n’bass at the time that I wasn’t listening to anything else. But, now I like them… so there…)
12.Northern Portrait- Crazy (Very 80’s sounding from a band that is brand spankin’ new)
13.Band Of Horses- No One’s Gonna Love You (I spoke to the manager of this band back when they just had a demo and not even a record contract… he wasn’t a nice person… but the band was nice, glad to see they made it)
14.Pulp- Something Changed (I saw this band open up for Blur and 2 years later… saw them headline a festival in England… both times they were amazing)
15.James Pants- We’re Through (I love this guy. So good. And I have to include the video.)
I love the way this video looks. Like it was shot on a soap opera set with soap opera lighting.

16.The Dead Milkmen- Bitchin’ Camaro (Man… I loved these guys when I was younger. I remember hearing about them from my friend’s older sister. I was young.)
17.The Smiths- Miserable Lie (My favorite song from my favorite band of all-time.)
18.The Shins- So Says I (I don’t care what anyone says… “Chutes Too Narrow” is a better album than “Oh, Inverted World”)
19.Hall & Oates- I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (‘Nuff Said.)
20.Destroyer- A Dangerous Woman Up To A Point (Dan Bejar is the man.)
21.Helen Stellar- You Glow From Within (My friends’, Clif & Jim, band. Are they ever gonna get back together? Maybe… I heard some rumors… heh heh)
22.Megafaun- Lazy Suicide (North Carolina boys done good)
23.Daft Punk- Fresh (Remember when Daft Punk were just that… Fresh? Now everyone wants to sound like them.)
24.Neil Young- Journey Thru The Past (Am I traveling back through Canada? No, but I’d like to start being a hobo. Sort of.)
25.Dizzee Rascal- Dream (Grimiest grimey grime.)
26.Modest Mouse- You’re The Good Things (Remember when no one knew about them? No? Well, I do.)
27.The Pixies- Break My Body (live) (My 2nd favorite band of all-time.)
28.Kings Of Leon- Knocked Up (One of the best openers to an album ever.)
29.Giant Drag- Swan Song (Live on Connect) (I think this is the best song that Annie ever did… but, it’s not on any albums… although supposedly it’ll be on the new one.)
30.The Dresden Dolls- Dirty Business (First concert I saw in LA. It was a good choice. It also reminds me of driving in Upstate New York.)

So… wheesh. There it is. 30 songs. I am 30 years old. About damn time.

Audrey told me about Baby Dayliner a while back and I didn’t pay her much mind. UNTIL NOW! Another friend recently sent me a couple of his songs and this time I paid attention (I only listen to people when they give me gifts or shower me with praise). So far I like what I hear. He sounds like a cross between Stephen Merritt and Ian Curtis.

Baby Dayliner – Raid
Baby Dayliner – Funeral Dirge

The Magnetic Fields – I Think I Need A New Heart

Joy Division – Transmission

I still don’t know why more people don’t listen to electronica.

Weird Tapes- Home (it sounds like they sampled “The Legend of Zelda” and tweaked it a little… or am I just hearing things?)
Empire Of The Sun- Walking On A Dream (love this track… good steady pulse…)
High Resolution- Sweepin’ Off (Technically, this isn’t a new song. It came out in 1983, but it’s new to me… so… pfft!)

This is really bizzare…
