I love this:



Of course, there's a million reasons. But I will only bore you with a few because I am aware that I am not fascinating: a lot of the time, I don't give a flippin damn what someone has to say with the lyrics they agonized writing - like Shelley in a smelly, dive bar. Sometimes? I don't care!!!!!! Raaaaaaarrrrgh!!! Also, it's like the man said, "... essentially I'm an animal, so just what do I do with all the aggression?"



Mellow me will put on a Mono album such as ...


or Explosions in the Sky.


Also, I think in a couple of years my hair will resemble the dude on vocals. At which point I will find someone very gullible and say that that was me in the video, and we had everyone else stand in holes like they did when filming the Hobbits in Lord of the Rings. I will not live this lie, but I will ride it for an hour or so. Then, laughter. (mine)

Of course, I also love this:

 


Ha! Ha! Baby goat!! Ha Ha!! Is anyone else very sad that they do not have a pet like this goat? Please raise your hands. Also, is anyone else very sad that they cannot order merchandise, (cough ShopperTshirt Addict cough) from Mono? Or that I seem to have lost my copy of  The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place ... ?

Explosions in the Sky
have seriously got to be one of the best bands ever. If you like that instrumental indie rock kind of thing. I can't get enough of these guys. They have just put out their most recent album a couple months ago, and like the rest of their albums it has the possibility of changing your life. Or maybe it will just make the act of getting through your life a little better. Explosions in the Sky are great at creating a soundtrack for what goes on in your head. They seem to be able to somehow capture that feeling. Explosions also have that amazing ability to make you feel intensely sad and happy at the same time.

The Explosions in the Sky have four real albums. The first being "How Strange, Innocence" originally released in 2000. This album was reissued by Temporary Residence recently. This was followed by "Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forverver" in 2001. Next was "The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place" in 2003. This year they gave us "All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone." They also did a mail order album ep thing "The Rescue" which you can buy from them at their shows. Also, in 2004, they did the soundtrack to the movie "Friday Night Lights." Friday Night Lights is now a TV show that I don't watch. I've heard good things about it, but it just doesn't fit into my schedule. I have heard that soundtrack, and it is of course, amazing. All of these albums are put out by the amazing label "Temporary Residence Limited." In addition to the Explosions albums, they also put out albums by Eluvium, Tarentel, By the End of Tonight, The Grails, and Rob Crow.
