Thunderr

Soo since I don't really have anything to talk about, I'll make a list of what I've been enjoying.

Un Chien Andalou- Okay so my French and Italian Cinema class is proving pretty awesome. Tuesday we watched loads of surrealist movies and they were all pretty weird. I love these disjointed movies. Also, I read that the legendary eye-cut-with-a-razor was actually a cow eye. Hmm imagine that.

Morningwood's CD- I didn't really think I would like this as much as I do, but it's really frikken catchy. They may still be a little cheesy and over-the-top in a Darkness sort of way, but I'll take what I can get. Would like to see them live and see what I think. I've heard mixed reviews, but I think they have the potential for being awesome. Too bad bands don't like Utah.

Snow- it snowed again last night and it's amaaazzing. Everything looks so pretty (except for intersections, where the snow is all melted and mushy and disgusting). Being from Texas, it's weird having to walk through snow.

Arctic Monkeys Hype - I think it's really funny how people are making such a huuuge deal out of these guys. The album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not is pretty good and full of really great songs like "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" and "Fake Tales of San Francisco." First person to say "the demos were better" well...they've got something coming.

The Artwork of Rachel Sumpter - Motel Gallery is my most favorite art gallery ever (yeah I've never been there) but month after month they have the best shows. This month is the artwork of Rachel Sumpter. Apparently some of the pieces were done for Said the Gramophone. Interesting/AWESOME. (I wish I could do stuff like that...) I knew that Inuit girl looked like Chan Marshall!

Yo Yo Mikey.

Pedro actually grew up in Salt Lake City and they get A LOT of love there. They get a lot of spins on X96. Its one of their biggest markets they did 6 shows there in 2005 and I more than certain they will be returning soon. GLAD YOU LIKE THE RECORD!!! YAYYYYYY

Completely agree with you on the Morningwood cd -- a little over the top at times, but undeniably catchy. . .

Agreed about the arctic monkeys' demos. They had more energy to them...
