The Police>Puff Daddy>Deerhunter

The other day I was listening to "Never Stops," Deerhunter, and all of a sudden all I could think about was P. Diddy. Now how Deerhunter worked P.Diddy into my brain, at the time, was a mystery. But then I put it on repeat and repeat and repeat and finally relized how this song actually sounds a lot like "I'll be Missing You." So naturally I pulled up youtube and did a quick search, and the first one to pop up is P. Diddy singing this song with Sting at the VMA awards in 1997, an event I most definatly did not miss as a pop obsessed 9 year old. And then Sting started singing, which made me remember that P.Diddy had sampled that gutair line from The Police, "Every Breath You Take".
So basically, if you listen very closely on repeat and repeat and repeat you can tell that "Never Stops" is actually inspired from P.Diddy, which was inspired from Biggie Smalls, which was sampled from The Police, who wanted to stalk some chick.
Was Bradford Cox listening to The Police, or P.Diddy? My vote goes to P.Diddy.

Listen to the evolution, tell me if I'm crazy:

The Rescue

This past weekend was The Rescue, a peaceful protest against the war going on in Uganda. In over 100 hundred cities across the world, people marched and gathered to write to their Senators and Congressmen alerting them that we must take action now, and bring home the hundreds of children that have been abducted by the LRA, and are forced to fight. It was organized by Invisible Children Inc, an organization that is incredibly easy to get involved with. I helped out the documentation team here in Boston, capturing the spirit of everyone involved.
Check out the rest of my photos here.
You can find links to the rest of the documentation team's work here.

But with this new music from Little Boots, it's about to blow up.

Chuck Klosterman

"Led Zeppelin sounds like the way a cool guy acts. Or--more specifically --Led Zeppelin sounds like a certain kind of cool guy; they sound like the kind of cool guy every man vaguely thinks he has the potential to be, if just a few things about the world were somehow different. And the experience this creates is unique to Led Zeppelin because its manifestation is entirely sonic: There is a point in your life when you hear songs like "The Ocean" and "Out on the Tiles" and "Kashmir," and you suddenly find yourself feeling like these songs are actively making you into the person you want to be."

Klosterman tends to write many things I find myself agreeing with, but this side rant about Led Zeppelin in Killing Yourself To Live probably explains my entire music listening experience. For me, it was more of "Dancing Days" and "D'yer Mak'er," and just about every other song that makes you feel cool while hearing it. Klosterman has been the only author on my reading list this year. Reading him somehow makes me feel like I might understand, for some reason, just a little bit more of what it's like to be a rock star. Even though he's not even a musician, he just writes about them for Spin Magazine. But still, were obviously soul mates.

Easter Sunday

The first holiday I initiated on Brook St, probably because dyed Easter eggs are the most beautiful holiday decoration ever.

And also, since Jesus has risen, you know what to do:

This video is beautiful. Found it off of as they say, "It's a fashion photographers wet dream."

saturdays equal music.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Zero.

When I first watched this video, I didn't like it. But for some reason I watched it again. I basically want to be Karen O whenever I'm listening to this song walking around Boston. This video is dripping with 80's, I keep thinking of Blade Runner whenever I watch it. You might not like it, but then you should watch it again.

Also, Paper was the same as every club in every city. We were dancing on stage way to soon, and you know when your dancing on stage, it's time to go home.

CLUB PAPER. Hipsters of Boston unite to sweat and drink and look good. If it's anything like the Emerson Boylston catwalk, I might have to leave, but only after I dance to this song.
I'll let you know.
