Monkey Gone To Heaven

Today is the Chinese New Year, which reminds me that I should call my mom. Though born in the year of the rabbit, myself, I’ve always had an affinity for the simian sign. Happy year of the monkey to all – may your feces fly true and your nits be plump and tasty.

Splendid has an interview with Broken Social Scene, complete with panoramic photos of the whole band. Or some of them, at least.

Centro-Matic are going to be in Buffalo on February 19 at Mohawk Place with The Pale, but aren’t taking that final step across the border. Um, let’s hold a little contest – first person to email me, gets to pick me up, drive me to the show and bring me back home! And as a bonus, you can even pay my cover! These rock’n’roll road trip candidates always seem to fall on weekdays, and at points in my life in which I don’t have a car. Centro-Matic’s Flashes And Cables EP is out February 3.

You can grab the new Mountain Goats single, “Palmcorder Yanja”, from 4AD. We Shall All Be Healed is out February 3.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back February 27th at The Phoenix. $20 will get you in the door, tickets already on sale at Rotate.

Batting practice with penguins! My top score so far is 321. From Geekent.

Starsky And Hutch… the trailer. Ben Stiller certainly has perfected that one character of his.

A lovely evening of technical difficulties. Net outcome – all my bookmarks were erased (will copy from work), chunks of code in my blog were erased (backed up, thankfully) and the cable went out for an hour and a half (no internet OR television…). Computers suck. And then I forgot to turn my alarm on this morning, and overslept by about an hour and a half. But on the plus side, I’m well-rested.

    I got the MG single a few weeks ago. It’s quite different. Drums on every track, strange rhythms, but still ALL good. I can’t wait for the album.

    YYYs – Crap! That’s a week AFTER I’ll be in Toronto! Last time, I missed British Sea Power by just a day (and will miss them again this time, too).
