In 98, my boombox was blasting Van Halen and Led Zeppelin. Â I hadn’t heard that much of it before, so classic rock was basically new music to me. Â I didn’t get much into new bands till college. Â StereogumÂ has a post about the ten year anniversary of Neutral Milk Hotel’s Airplane Over the Sea. Â I was probably too busy deciding if I was more partial to David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar in Van Halen, so I never listened to Neutral Milk Hotel and I missed out on the nostalgia part. Â Apparently, it is a definitive album of the nineties; a lot of people talk about it like they would talk about Weezer’s Blue Album or Radiohead’s OK Computer. Â Anyways, check it out on Hype Machine.
If you thought the Rihanna Umbrella was ridiculous, then get ready for the Tiddy Bear. Pop Candy hasÂ a post about this weird item and Ellen DeGeneres’ fascination with it.Â This has to have been designed for owners of VW bugs that customized everything but their seat belt.
Â I didn’t know that she already aÂ line of umbrellasÂ out, butÂ DlistedÂ has a post about Rihanna releasing her second series of umbrellas through Macys. Â Jazzy umbrellas, but they had better be for twenty and thirty bucks a pop. Â I wonder if they break as fast as all the other ones that have been in the Travers house. Â Its a lot of money for an umbrella, but a good bet that Ellen-ellen-ellen would love a umbrella- ella-ella to go with her Rihanna ringtone. Â
Its too bad Edwards dropped out of the race, cause Kevin changed my mind.
So it is official Lizzy and I have decided on our IU theme song, Justice’s “We Are Your Friends”. It is definitely our favorite dancing songs and I sing to myself all the time at practice. Though we have taken this idea to an extreme and began developing an entire IU soundtrack. Other record hits include the classic Biz Markie “Just a Friend”, Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”, and Timbaland’s “Release” featuring Justin Timberlake. Clearly we like to dance but obviously Timbaland makes the hits. This originally started out as a post about how awesome Justice is so check them out. Also they will be playing in Chicago at the Rivera in March. I will not be going due to polo but envious because Lizzy probably will and so should you! They are said to be the next Daft Punk, silly I know but they still rock.
