The Taste Just Slips Away
Interesting side-effect of this cold I’m getting over – I can no longer taste anything. Dinner last night was nothing more than a collection of textures. I’m not really happy about this.
The East Bay Express finds out what everyone else has always wondered – Why are the writers at Pitchfork such assholes sometimes? From The GPC.
Maybe I should be offended, but Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle looks like one of the funniest things I’ll see all year – or at least I hope it is. Anything that’s advertised as starring “The Asian guy from American Pie and the Indian guy from Van Wilder” – their words, not mine – has got the right idea. I mean, really – when was the last time you saw an Asian guy, named or not, in the lead of a Hollywood film? Hell, I’m just amazed that it’s not James Hong.
As promised, Ted Leo has posted mp3s of works in progress for his new album. Go to the media/audio section of his site to grab em. Only two are new songs, though – “Congressional Debcision” is from his Rx/Pharmacists debut. Do the information tags for “Me and Mia” and “The Angels Share” come up with the artist listed as “The Homsars” for anyone else? Cute.
Metric will be doing a sort-of-homecoming show (if you consider Toronto their sort-of-hometown) July 14 at the Mod Club. I’m going to be out west that week so I won’t be in attendance, but be advised they put on a pretty kick-ass show.
