finally heard a does it offend you, yeah? song on the radio last night (i think it was loveline... as soon as the song was over i had to stop listening) called "dawn of the dead." their album is only $7.99 on itunes, so i think i'm going to have to get it. i've heard a lot of hype but never actually bothered to listen to le music...

also, the song "battle royale" samples a clip of the epic japanese movie by the same name. kind of awesome.

everyday i wake up, i choose love, i choose life

trying to extricate myself out of overall sullen, mopey mood this weekend. downloaded the submarines honeysuckle weeks album from itunes. "you, me and the bourgeoisie" never fail to make me feel better... (and now i don't have to lurk my own myspace just to listen to the song on repeat).

they're playing @ la weekly detour music fest this year (oct 4th, downtown la). tempting...

it's too easy just to fall apart.
