A Real LOL Treat
11/06/09 at 01:16 PM by Garett Press
First youtube video to literally make me LOL in a while. Isn't it so fun to watch others get injured? The more you rewind the funnier it gets...

Bands, TV, Comedy, and Stuffs
09/25/09 at 10:18 AM by Garett Press
If anyone was curious, these were the bands I blurbed about in the Absolute 100:

Brobecks
Harvard
Alvin Band
The Static Jacks
Brighter Shades
The New Regime
The Sound Archives
Hotel of the Laughing Tree

I think they were pretty popular choices, so that makes me endlessly happy.

Speaking of which, anybody think this is Unsigned Showcase worthy? http://www.myspace.com/arden
Can't decide.

Anybody watch Flash Forward last night? It was intriguing enough for a LOST fan, and if you're willing to invest the energy in following it, I think it could be a fun ride.

Still have to watch Heroes and Glee from this week. I'm so glad Glee is rapidly gaining fans - with so many nods to broadway and its stars, I can't help but root for it 100%. Heroes on the other hand - I'm not expecting much but I feel.... obligated?

Oh, I also though Parks and Recreation was hilarious last night. Should I be watching this show? Aziz Ansari is a riot as always.

And now some comedy:

Twitter/Greasemonkey Fans
09/23/09 at 09:48 PM by Garett Press
If you use Twitter and Firefox, GET the Greasemonkey add-on, and then install this script.

It makes Twitter a thousand times better. You can actually understand what people are talking about in conversations, you can "retweet" with one click - and you can see all the media that gets posted without shuffling around the net. HUGE help.

Also, this one revolutionizes Facebook.

And if you use Google Calendar there's a few cool scripts. Colorize your weekends and more. No links though, sorry.

Greasemonkey rocks... hard

fun. AND meaningful.

My summer fun album also speaks to me lyrically? Who woulda thunk?

"So I left, That is it. Thatís my life, Nothing is sacred.
I donít keep friends, I keep acquainted,
Iím not a prophet, But Iím here to profit.

Thatís all, Iím gone! Thatís my life, Nothing is sacred.
I donít fall in love, I just fake it.
I donít fall in love. I donít fall in love."

REC! The Brobecks
07/24/09 at 11:47 AM by Garett Press
The Brobecks - Violent Things

They've got inklings of Muse and The Dear Hunter (thanks to Casey Crescenzo production), mixed in with the sensitivity of a drama-queen high-school kid. But the melodies are stellar, and extremely easy to love with the drab, moody, amazing vocals delivering them. Why are they unsigned, this is a $$ maker
