Dancing in the streets

The new Presets video makes me want to dance in the streets. Billy Elliot anyone?

February Mix.

"Think About You" by Guns N' Roses is my favorite love song, ever. Has been since what? '87/'88? (I think I've written this before./Sorry long time readers.) Many argue that the pretty ballad "Sweet Child O' Mine" is their best love song... But hear me out: In "S.C.O.M." - Axl is singing ABOUT his lady and her hair big enough to hide in, whereas in "T.A.Y." he is singing directly to his woman. Telling HER how she makes his heart say YES while semi-screaming/professing his love because he's so stoked on it. Thoughts?

Anyway, fckn February is the time when the stores are littered with little pink and red hearts to annoy even the most romantic of us. It sucks. I feel the way about Valentine's Day the way I feel about Xmas (that you should be kind and loving every day not when the calendar tells you to.)

So, this month's mixtape is inspired by my love for love, and my disdain for Hallmark Holidays. Here's two mixes. They each contain the same artists - sing songing about vastly different sentiments:




Oh, and happy Friday the 13th.

More signs of the impending apocalypse.

We don't just get this once in our lifetimes, but twice. Aww thanks guys.

Said Fred Durst and Wes Borland in a joint statement: "We decided we ere more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other. Regardless of where our separate paths have taken us, we recognize there is a powerful and unique energy with this particular group of people we have not found anywhere else. This is why Limp Bizkit is back."

Finally watched the latest episode of ROL:B

Ahh, Brett Michaels: helping women across America with low self-esteem reach new lows.
