The new man in my life.
04/23/10 at 03:57 PM by Julia Conny

I've had my heart set on a getting a record player for months, and my friend Mike showed up to my place with one in tow on Record Store Day, of all days! Needless to say, I shopped in celebration. I got ....

Okkervil River - The Stand Ins
...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead - Madonna
Rites of Spring - End on End
Liars Academy - No News Is Good News
Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha

This little addition to my life has made me a very happy girl. New speakers are a must.

Streaming Albums and Simple Plan Tours
02/08/08 at 02:12 PM by Julia Conny
The new City and Colour album is streaming on myspace, but I'm waiting until Feb. 12th so I can get my own copy. Ha, so there. I haven't downloaded anything (unless for reviewing/promotional purposes) since before the New Year, and I am sticking to this moral code. I want to support my music and stop being hypocritical, and I'm pretty damn proud of myself for actually following through on a goal of mine. It's brought new life and excitement to purchasing CDs, and I recommend everyone give it a try.

I'm getting pumped to see The Graduate again. I was beginning to get nervous that it would be half a year before we see them again. But alas! God loves us, or something. I mean, the tour IS with Simple Plan, but that can be nothing sort of amusing, so I think it'll be a great, great night nonetheless. Jac and I will be venturing up to Philly on a school night, but I am very OK with this.

And putting this in here so I don't forget: April 19th is Record Store Day. Pay tribute to your favorite little record shop. Mine is Soundgarden in Fells Point. Normally, it would be the Record & Tape Traders a couple minutes from my apartment, but it was bought out and I haven't been there since.

Tonight I'm spending time/drinking with my co-workers at this Irish Pub thing ... I don't even really know what it is, but I'm sure it'll be fun. I love my day job, and especially the people I work with. Good to have the week over, good to have things under control, and good to be feeling good. Now if only I can get up off my couch and clean my apartment ....
