Okay, so I recently got back from Aruba, where I (possibly) broke a rib or two and fucked up my foot pretty bad (it's all purple and swollen and shit), but I'm not going to let potentially serious bodily injuries keep me down. You can head over to my Facebook page (yea, I know it's gay, but I got sucked in just like the rest of you) to check out photos from my trip...they're not up yet but they will be soon I promise. Anyway...if you're wondering why that dog is up there it's because I've selected three new tracks for my holiday mixtape and they are: The Flaming Lips - A Change at Christmas (Say it isn't so), Coldplay - 2000 miles and finally Local H - Disgruntled Christmas

It's (Almost) Christmas Time, Bitches

I know Christmas isn't for another month or so, but I have begun working on my (soon to be) infamous underground Christmas mixtape. Those of you who are going to get a copy already know who you are, and if you're reading this wondering what the hell I'm talking about, well then you're probably not going to get a copy (unless you ask me really nicely). Anyway, here's the (tenative) tracklist, which is most certainly subject to change. The tracks here aren't listed in any particular order as of yet.

1. Coldplay - Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas
2. Radiohead - Winter Wonderland
3. Sufjan Stevens - Come On! Let's All Boogie to the Elf Dance!
4. Feist - Lo, How a Rose E're Blooming
5. Polyphonic Spree - Little Drummer Boy
6. Death Cab for Cutie - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
7. The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
8. Polyphonic Spree - Happy Christmas (War Is Over)
9. The Walkmen - Christmas Party
10. Sufjan Stevens - That Was the Worst Christmas Ever
11. Trans Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Eve
12. Arcade Fire - Jinglebell Rock
13. Dave Matthews Band - Christmas Song

And I'm debating whether or not I should include Paul McCartney's "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time" because I think that it is easily hands down, the worst Christmas song ever recorded, possibly the worst song ever. Let me know your thoughts on including that little gem.

Yes, after a long hiatus, I am back. Rejoice.

I haven't posted anything on here in a really long time. Too long of a time if you ask me. but I am back. I can rattle off a bunch of excuses as to why I stopped posting, but I'm not going to bother with that bullshit. I'll just tell you the truth. I'm a fucking lazy bastard. Sorry. Anyway, lots of interesting bits of music news. Read about them all.

Damon Albarn confirms new Blur EP How excited am I?

Liam Gallagher is such a prick. I love it. His take on Bloc Party

I cannot wait for the new Radiohead album

Yes the increasingly shitty weather has made me even more depressed than I already am. Go here to download a 25 song "Rainy Day" mix

By the way, have any of you noticed that the new Strokes album is leakier than a baby's bladder? From what I've heard it sounds like it's going to be a solid album.
