Playlist for Things that Are Square 10-24-13

Hey you guys!

Oh man. One week 'til Halloween. Do you guys have your costumes ready? I'd really like to see a picture of them if they are. I'm going to two parties this weekend, and for one of them I'm just going to re-use my Silent Bob ComicCon costume. But the one for Friday I'm going to be a major historical figure with a mustache. Which means I have to shave. And then I'll have a mustache. And I'm nervous about it. Promise me you'll still love me with a mustache.

Nothing Violates This Nature

All Pigs Must Die - "Faith Eater" (Nothing Violates This Nature)

My high school self is so confused by the things I listen to nowadays.

Get the fuck up

Pharoahe Monch - "Simon Says" (Internal Affairs)

It's darker and closer to the end

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - "Wide Lovely Eyes" (Push the Sky Away)

I didn't pick up this album when it came out because it didn't have the fire-and-brimstone appeal of older Nick Cave albums. But I know when I've fucked up. I can admit it. I was wrong. I am sorry.

But I mean...can we agree that this doesn't hit the peaks of Murder Ballads, right?

Pissed Jeans - "Male Gaze" (Honeys)

It's when a smile becomes a stare and it starts to burn...
I'm not innocent, but I'm trying

Playlist for 10-3-13

Happy Friday, everyone!

I hope your October is off to a great start. Personally, I'm trying to do something Halloween/horror-related every day of the month. Thus far, it's mostly been watching various movies (including "Hocus Pocus," which I'd never seen before and is actually really, really entertaining). Tonight, though, I get to go see "Welcome to Night Vale" live at the Largo. I look forward to having my molecules forcibly rended from each other so that I can become a being of pure energy and take my place as part of the glow cloud.

All hail the glow cloud.

Until then....the weather:
