Pearl Jam is a godly band:
Originally, before I listened to this beauty of an album, I absolutely hated Pearl Jam. I criticized them everytime I heard their songs on the radio, and I spat at them everytime I heard that they were more talented than Nirvana. Then one day, for some dumbass reason, I decided to stream their brand new album on Napster to see how much I would hate it. But something unimaginable happened. Something so horrifying, that I knew it would open the doors to a frightening world that I wouldn't be ready for. What happened you asked?
I loved it. I loved the album that came from the one band that I hated so much, and I cursed myself for it. Then by some strange oddity, when I streamed the rest of their songs, I immediatly loved them all. What is this devilry? Is some unknown force telling me something that I should hear? Is this a sign of things to come?
But any way I look at it, I know that Pearl Jam's newest release is a perfect rival against Tool for the Best Overall Albom of the Year. All I have to do is wait for DJ Shadow's "The Outsider" album. Until then, Pearl Jam seems to be the winner:
And then I also bought:
I don't really have much to say here, since i've loved Soundgarden for the longest time, so I might as well say that Superunknown is a nearly flawless album that any grunge fan, or any music fanatic for that matter, should definetly pick up.
And now for a blast to the past:
What happens when you leave Led Zepplin and The White Stripes alone in a bedroom together for a very long time, then taking them to the hospital to give birth to their newly conceived child? Wolfmother is what comes out, and they sound goddamn awesome. It definetly sounds like they've grown up on only 70's rock, while listening to some Queens of the Stone Age as well, and that's exactly what the whole album is compiled of. But the bad news is that they're way out of their time to be a truly memorable group at all. Wolfmother's debut album is a great album, but if you've been listening to the hype that surrounds this aussie band, prepare to be disappointed.
And now, for the chicken man:
Now, this is coming from Jared Hess, director of Napoleon Dynamite from 2004, so that and Jack Black are pretty much the only reasons that I saw this film. And to tell the truth, I can safely say that this is one of the funniest movies of the year. If you're not into random, off-the-wall, zany humor, then you'll probably not enjoy it as much. But even so, Jack Black is easily reason enough to see this movie. That, and it's named 'Nacho' Libre. Who wouldn't see a movie named after a tasty snack?................Well, maybe lactose intolerant people......>_>..
So, moving on to more important stuff....
The damn dog got out again this morning. Ran all over the block, me chasing after her with a net(not really, but I wanted to). Fortunately for me, a fellow kitten helped me out. The dog saw her and ran towards her, only to stop abruptly to the sound of hissing, an arched back, and a mean face. When she got close, teh kitten jumped at her, claws all sharp for her to see. But then it got chased up a tree, and I grabbed the dog in time. THANK YOU KITTENZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!
This month, I shall go see the following:
And maybe Metallica's St. Anger and be your own PET albums....
I must go. But before I do:
If you find this fat bastard, hunt him down. Ass stole my stuffed walrus. :cry:
GB and GN.
