so, i went to bed super late, but ultimately happy with how the day was. i skipped out on church sunday morning, but made it to my mom’s church later that night for their annual thanksgiving dinner. it was fun, but a bit crowded and hot. that old gym doesn’t get good air inside. after that i went home and washed clothes and played more COD. The fourth episode of The Walking Dead came on and it was a good one. the night ended with me actually reading a chapter of a book i own and then falling asleep. monday is now here, but it doesn’t seem bad so far. in my mind, it’s more like a thursday because i’m off from wednesday until next monday.
wow, i just wrote a bunch of stuff that nobody probably cares about… hmm, i’m sometimes torn from writing about what i did on that day, to free thinking and writing about whatever. the stuff in which i write about whatever seems to be more interesting to me. it’s also easier to write. all the stuff up above is just filler. but of course, i really did enjoy myself, and i didn’t mind sharing some of it with you all. bleh, this blog is more complex that i ever expected it to be. or maybe it’s just me who’s the complex person and the blog is simply a tool of sorts. i’ll go with the later, so yeah, it’s definitely me… maybe this is why i’m having a hard time with a social life. well, as you can probably tell, i did end up having a blast with everyone this weekend, so my social life took a leap upwards. i just wish it would do that more often…
you know what??? i’m still in a decent mood, even for a monday, so let’s post some music to reflect that. a happy schuyler means happy music, so here’s a newer band that i recently starting jammin’. they are called, Best Coast and are fun fun fun!!!
this is just pure indie pop right here. best coast are a recent band that formed in 2009 and are based outta the west coast, via los angeles, california. over the past year they have blown up in the underground with their jangly, lo-fi, chillwave style music. well, not so much chillwave, but instead more akin to 60’s surf/garage pop like The Beach Boys. there is a great deal of loud guitars and fuzzed out bass, which makes it an almost dream pop/shoegaze style band. lead singer, bethany cosentio, sings with a soft, airy voice that recalls artists like, Hope Sandoval, Julie Cruise and even Courtney Love. if you happen to dig bands like, Mazzy Star, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Raveonettes, Wavves, The Vivian Girls, or Ride, then there shouldn’t be any reason not to like best coast!!!
okay, so to start we have two ep's which are titled, Make You Mine and Where The Boys Are. after that we have their debut full length, which is called, Crazy For You. it's a sweet, emotional album with great pop hooks and nice, thoughtful lyrics. if you are a romantic at heart, (i am...) then you will surely dig this. enjoy!!!
i have fun...
