sweet monkey, tell me this isn't awesome

so i was ocd-ly going through all my mp3s and copying and pasting album art out of amazon for all the albums that didn't already have album art, so it'll all be there nicely on my new ipod, right? and i saw i didn't have cover art for Loverlee's Musical Chairs. and then the questions came:

they have their music on

are the modlins on

and then

i found this

now tell me that isn't awesome

did the blog title fool you? no? anyways, new Franz Ferdinand album out today. and on that note, i'll also take the opportunity to recommend you can stream full albums straight from there, including Tonight. yes, you read it here: stream Tonight, for free, today!

and as a quick update, while you're listening to Tonight, tonight...

... sorry, couldn't help it. anyways, while you're listening, tonight, to Tonight, i'll be heading to the killian-sheridan abode to (try and) record better backup vocals for a few more songs for album #3! moving right along...

happy bday, annie

what better birthday present for your little sister turning... how old are you? ... 23? yea, that sounds about right... anyways...

what better bday present for your sister's 23rd bday than a free show with The Modlins, Darker My Love (from LA), a whole mess of most excellent DJs, and a hosted bar sponsored by Three Olives vodka?

ok, maybe you might think it might be better if the show wasn't on a school night, but hey, it wasn't like i invented the Julian calendar. i'm just working with what i got. happy monday.

the ruby room vs the radio room

happy new year! ... only 5 days late ... anyways, yes, 2009 is here, and for no particular reason except for my own personal benefit, i will set out once and for all to remember the difference between 2 "new" San Diego venues, The Ruby Room and The Radio Room. i put "new" in quotes because both existed before their current names: The Ruby Room was formerly the San Diego Sports Club, while The Radio Room was formerly the Zombie Lounge. "Radios" and "Rubies" are apparently too close to one another in my memory, but Sports Clubs and Zombies seem pretty different, unless you are in some sort of undead vavi league or something... anyways, that should do it.

oh, and The Ruby Room is where we Modlins will be, next Friday, January 16th 2009, alongside our friends Swim Party, Team Abraham, and Gamma Gamma, in a concert celebration our friend Jason G getting 1 year more experience on this here planet earth. or something. poster coming soon. happy monday! happy new year!
