Fake Empire

The National "Fake Empire" off of Boxer.
Rockin' at the Knox 2010

The first song that I ever saw live by The National, as well as the first full song that I ever watched from my seat at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.

The National Rockin' at the Knox

I was pleasantly surprised by the event last night. The crowd was well behaved with the exception of the typical cloud of smoke that seems to hover around every WNY outdoor concert. It seemed that they were there just to be seen and to support the Knox, which is fine and good in my book.

Just to be perfectly honest the only reason why I went was to see The National and Matt did not leave me disappointed at all. Here is the final song "Terrible Love." Plus I have to say the way it ended left me left me ecstatically shocked! It was good to see that he kept the momentum up from the Radio City show 2 nights earlier. Totally reminds me of the Pearl Jam Even Flow video back in the day.

Ace of Gaga?

I actually thought of this song when I first heard Alejandro. Why "borrow" music nowadays when it is so easily referenced?

In your room

I have just been into Depeche Mode lately. I went out on Friday night and heard 3 of their songs! So here is one of their songs

It's funny but with Depeche Mode I didn't really like Songs of Faith and Devotion back in the day. To be honest I just thought it was them being "Grunge" as it was out at the same time as Nirvana and Pearl Jam's 10. But it really has become one of my favorite albums. I think what screwed it up for me as my first girlfriend was really into it at the time and there was thing insane tension and drama after we broke up. It's crazy how someone can just ruin a song or band for you, at least in this case I came back to it but only after I saw this performance live.

Smashing Pumpkins

After thinking about it I actually could hit all three of these shows since I'm off of work the first week of July...

TUE 7/6 Cleveland, OH House of Blues
THU 7/8 Grand Rapids, MI Orbit Room
FRI 7/9 Columbus, OH Newport Music Hall

Hmmm this may be a possibility...

I'm just a bit surprised to see the Smashing Pumpkins are playing somewhere close by July 9th. I'm debating if I should grab a ticket or not, the trouble is that Metric is playing the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on the same day. Tough choice I know.

Also a Kiss pre-sale is staring me right in the face as well @ the MCA

Sometimes you wish that you could go to everything...

I didn't realize Steve Jobs did his demo out in Youngstown?

Too Funny. I'm just happy that someone like jobs had a total F Up while doing a presentation. Right now I am just sick of doing one every class and it got really old last class. I'm just sick of them at this point. Yea I know that this is just the standard way of the business world, but no matter how much you prep, you may always run into a down network such as this.

Beach Ratings

To be honest I'm not buying this guys rational, then again I guess I like to actually SWIM from the Beach that I would be on and not freeze. Oh, and being allowed to kick back with a Corona (in a can) would be nice as well. Plus not having a $40 cover charge is also a bonus...

Siesta Beach is #1 in my book if you just enjoy any of the above.

Then again I don't know how much longer it will be in the current state that it is in given the mess BP is brewing :-/

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
  • joe 09/12 01:54 well maybe the fall and setting up my computer again will get me to post regularly
