I should be working instead of aurally trippin' balls

I think I'm just going to start posting music videos of things that find themselves getting stuck in my stereo. That way, this blog has more than just boring ol' playlists.

First up: Black Moth Super Rainbow - "Born on a Day the Sun Didn't Rise" off of their most recent album Eating Us

Playlist for 9-24-09

Hey folks,

It's been a pretty shitty week, but it's Friday now, and things are looking up. I have a stomach full of breakfast burrito, I'm seeing Norm Macdonald tonight at the Improv, instead of working I'm making mix CDs for girls, I'm listening to sweet jamz, etc. Everything's coming up Kyle.

And here's what I played last night:

Ukulele Love

I've been practicing my ukulele a good deal more, lately. I intend to become quite good at it. This is only in part to win the heart of Kate Micucci.

Find this woman and bring her to me.

The voice in headphones...

I hope you kids are coming to the Mount Eerie (performing with full band and two drummers!)/Tara Jane O'Neil/No Kids/Karl Blau show tonight at UC Irvine's Pacific Ampitheater, put on by Acrobatics Everday. It's $8, at 730pm and will probably be a total snugglefest.

Playlist for 9-17-09

Hey folks,

Sorry for the delay in playlist-posting. You can stop holding your breath now. I was up in Yosemite at the wedding of my former co-host Sierra. If you remember when Sierra was cohosting, you're a TtAS O.G. (and probably a good friend of mine since no one has really been listening steadily since 2003 other than that). Anyway. Here's what I played:

You are the liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

I was talking to my friend Ali about this song last night during the show, and remembered how rad the video is. Now I'm passing the savings on to you!

Playlist for 9-10-09

Dudettes y dudes!!!

I'm back from my week in the desert at Burning Man, aka "the psychotic messy circus that is always on fire." It was definitely an experience. A dusty, drunken, glow-in-the-dark experience. Perhaps I'll see you next year. :)

Anyway. I was in a pretty good mood, and as such, did a pretty cheery show. Hope you enjoyed it if you were listening. Hope you will tune in for a future show if you missed it.
