Taking Back Sunday – Self-titled – 1st Impressions

Tell All Your Friends! If you are a Taking Back Sunday fan you are where you want to be. You’re gonna wanna turn the new CD up louder now, because the line-up is new again.
New, except that it’s not. Taking Back Sunday, traditionally my favorite band, (though I’ve really gone a different direction lately in musical tastes) has brought back the original line-up from the Tell All Your Friends CD, which is just awesome. Ok, all the excitement from the fact that it’s the original line-up aside, let’s actually listen to self-titled album. (more…)

January 2010 Link Round-up; Highlights and Lowlights

Well due to the success of my 2009 link round-up I decided to make it a monthly think. So again, this link dump will feature content created in January 2010 and some older content which I just happened to come across this month.

The case against 5 former Blackwater guards was dropped after it was horribly mishandled by the prosecuting team. And I do mean horribly. <The Wall Street Journal>

The Mets were weird when they were good. <The Big Lead>

Avatar almost had to raise their MPAA rating. What I am a talking about? Why a deleted Na’avi sex scene involving those tentacles of theirs. <Filmdrunk> (more…)

2009 Link Round-Up, Highlights and Lowlights

Well 2009 is coming to a close so I thought I’d compile some of my note-worthy internet finds of 2009. Not all originated in 2009, but most of the content and news did. Anything that didn’t, I discovered for myself in 2009.

2009 saw a pair of near tragic events in the air this year, neither of which ended with the loss of human life. First in January when a plane piloted by Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger went into the Hudson with 155 people on board. Then on Christmas day when a wanna-be terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, failed to successfully detonate a bomb on an airliner headed to Detroit.

Taking Back Sunday released a new album called New Again. A decent CD, but a typical Taking Back Sunday CD. Nothing groundbreaking or especially catching so overall a disappointment. But a new TBS CD is always a good thing.

Brand New – Daisy – 1st Impressions

Brand New is probably my all-time favorite band. Their only competition if from Taking Back Sunday and their last CD was pretty watered down. When I first heard The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me I wasn’t too blown away. I didn’t even go out and buy the CD. Then I went to their show. It was amazing and I regretted not being more familiar with their new stuff. After that show I listened to Brand New for probably 6 weeks straight. Fast forward a few years and out comes Daisy.
