A Blog Post

My mother was kind enough to inform me that my parents do, in fact, read my blog. Not quite sure what to make of that. Especially when she informs me I should cease the use of words including but not limited to:
and just plain old "douche."

It's a real shame because it happens to be one of my most favorite words.

I mean how else could I describe film-majors, people who live in Bethesda, and Jane Austin? Am I now forced to relegate myself to abbreviating it to just "D-bag" from now on? Does that not mean the same thing?


On a related note, I need someone elses opinion. If you don't know already, Death Cab For Cutie has released some new singles, the most popular of which is "I Will Possess Your Heart." I actually heard an edited version get some radio play, and I don't know what to think. It's good, but I'm not quite sure what to make of the (what i consider to be) long, drawn-out, instrumental introduction.
Here it is.

I Will Possess Your Heart (Full Album Version) - Death Cab For Cutie

Don't get me wrong. I do like it. But part of me is worried this may be the beginning of what most bands indulge in when they realize that people will listen to their albums no matter what some tracks sound like. It happens to all the greats. The Beatles. Radiohead. Let's face it, they're brilliant, but some "songs" are basically the musical equivelant of fingernails scraped across a chalkboard and then smashed with a hammer.
But hey, what am I saying here? We'll probably all get the album anyway.

This live track I definitely approve of.
