The Besnard Lakes. “For Agent 13” Are The Dark Horse. Jagjaguar, 2007.
Christmas tree accomplished. When you only have one string of lights, it involves some serious place strategizing (for both lights and tree itself). Looks super dope, if somewhat generic. I don’t know why anyone would pay more than 15$ (on sale) for a fake tree. It’s 4.5’’ tall, and I posed the shit out of those branches. Seriously, they curve up at the end and everything. Buy me a camera for Christmas and you can see the tree.

This is my favorite version of “O Holy Night” ever, and my favorite Xmas song right now. The album is fine.

P.S. Some of you are wondering, what happened to the post about Hank III’s fifth album in the last two years, Attention Deficit Domination? If you’ve heard black metal before, you will have heard everything on that album before, and better. If you haven’t listened to black metal before, don’t start there, or end up there, or go there along the way.
Mutemath. “Odd Soul.” Odd Soul. Warner Bros, 2011.
This day in coffee (actually yesterday now): I bought a very delicious Americano (short) at the Market - more or less following @hemminmich’s directions. I promptly left it on a counter while ordering danishes and remembered it halfway home. Sadness. Made President’s Choice brewed coffee at home. Way too strong, but actually semi tasty, which is not faint praise for President’s Choice, but semi-amazement that I made drinkable coffee. It shouldn’t be difficult. It’s just usually impossible.

Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin. “I Wear Black.” Reverse Shark Attack. Kill Shaman, 2009.
I did something to my back whilst sitting. Something bad and painful. Anyway, I am calling this guitar sound the “squall of sound.” A lot of people thought of this clever reference before me, but I don’t know any of them.
