it's getting to the point where i'm no fun anymore

I'm sorry my posts have been rather scarce as of late. I've been suffering from writer's block. Normally, I would post anyway, something lazy or pseudo-existential. This time, I just couldn't. I wouldn't say I'm back to full capacity but I have summoned up a few things that I can talk about, hopefully ably.I do return to you bearing excellent news. I just bought tickets to go see the amazing Crosby, Stills & Nash on June 3rd.

They're one of my favourite groups so I'm very, very excited.

Also, I feel it is my civic duty to point out (because it's not getting enough/any airplay) that the new Gnarls Barkley song is incredible. It's called "Run" and the video is, in the words of Justin Timberlake who makes a (okay, I must confess) cameo, crazy fresh. It failed the epilepsy tests so if you're prone to seizures, I'd advise only watching the first two minutes. If you watch it and have a seizure, please don't sue me, but know I'm deeply sorry. I can tell it's not going to be as big as "Crazy" and maybe that's for the best. I wouldn't want to get sick of it.

Maybe it's time to do something crazy in life. Like join the circus or become a Rock of Love contestant....that'll give you some writing material!

I saw CS&N when they came to Texas back when I was about ten...they're phenomenal, especially when you're RIGHT in front of the on-stage speakers!

Cate said...

wow, the song run is cool! have you heard about the teenagers?, i love them!
and i didn't have a fit while watching the video...well if i'm listening to hard rock or something it sometimes might look as if i'm having a fit but it's just headlessly headbanging.

Sidsel said...

I just read your comment, and how do you survive without H&M?! Can't imagine life wthout it..

Oh, and on a total random note, have your heard Alex Turner's new project The Last Shadow Puppets? It's so awesome! I found out about it here, the track on the page is so great! http://www.soundvenue.com/hitlist.asp

Great video! I have loved Cee-Lo for ages, always thought he was very hipster quirky, so Gnarls Barkley fits him, in a good way.

Carolina Lange said...

Crosby, Stills and Nash! Don't forget to post about the concert!
The video is great!

I like the song and the video, I hadn't heard this song before. I think it will be hard for him to come up with another "crazy", it's one of those spectacular, brilliant, up there, genius, feel good songs.

Molly :] said...

I love the gnarls song too!

Paha. We are too cool molly :) x

Cassie said...

I'm not sure if I've heard of them.

NonchalantMod said...

woah!! the video was quite something. Loved it though!

Ana said...

ahaha Justin Timberlake needs to fall in a canal.

Crazy was good, but I prefered Smiley Faces which got less air time.

Sister Libby said...

You lucky spaniel, you! And I have a question for you, because you seem knoweledgable. I don't think I spelled that correctly. I have a record sleeve, and I don't know what album it's from. It doesn't say on the sleeve. So, I was wondering if you could identify it. I can't really describe it, so just look on my sidebar, because I'm going to post a picture of it.
Thanks.
