Gaga's keytars

An array of Lady Gaga's hybrid musical instruments. Curious as to what she'll whip out for Lollapalooza. Because you know she'll come packin' & ready to rock!

Bag Raiders - Shooting Stars

Weak video, but love the song - super hyperdreamy & addictive.

Dickies tough pants

Dickies are my go-to whenever I'm forced to abide by "biz-casual" dress code. Next time I get the side-eye, I will proudly reveal the following. Not that it will change the opinion of snooty mcprepsters. But at least I can feel better about my pants.
Please excuse me while I enjoy the vroom-vrroooming sound effects playing in my head.

Pretty much amazing.

LCD Soundsystem - "Someone Great"

A lovely, albeit heartbreaking song about loss.

I wish that we could talk about it,
But there, that's the problem.
With someone new I couldn't start it,
Too late, for beginnings.
The little things that made me nervous,
Are gone, in a moment.
I miss the way we used to argue,
Locked, in your basement.

I wake up and the phone is ringing,
Surprised, as it's early.
And that should be the perfect warning,
That something's, a problem.
To tell the truth I saw it coming,
The way, you were breathing.
But nothing can prepare you for it,
The voice, on the other, end.

The worst is all the lovely weather,
I'm stunned, it's not raining.
The coffee isn't even bitter,
Because, what's the difference?
There's all the work that needs to be done,
It's late, for revision.
There's all the time and all the planning,
And songs, to be finished.

And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
Till the day it stops

I wish that we could talk about it,
But there, that's the problem.
With someone new I could have started,
Too late, for beginnings.
You're smaller than my wife imagined,
Surprised, you were human.
There shouldn't be this ring of silence,
But what, are the options?

When someone great is gone.
