How was that Easter ham?
I guess I like Seth Rogen, but is there a movie he's not in as of late?! Talk about overexposure man! Yeah, I finally watched Auntie Mame, and I enjoyed the raunchy/racy humor. I had no idea they could be this daring in 1958! Rosalind Russell was really good in the movie, and at times I thought I was actually watching Joan Crawford. Auntie Mame was a very feisty, vivacious, and fun gal; this woman was probably a really cool fag hag. And she had lots of money! YEEHA! Why couldn't I be blessed with an aunt or relative like this? There are people in my family with cash, but none of them are close or that nice to me. :(
So I like to update my iPod every few months, because I get tired of the same 5,500 songs ya know? LOL! So I just cleaned out some old stuff I don't really listen to anymore to make room for new sounds. I didn't like U2's last album at all: How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, even though it won tons of Grammys. I found it quite boring, except for its awesome lead track Vertigo. This new one however is quite good and catchy so far, so I am fairly pleased. I have to listen a bit more to Death Cab For Cutie's latest album, but I'm still only attached to this big hit song that was played lots on the radio. I'm giving a whirl to Silversun Pickups' latest effort and so far so good; I do remember liking this song of theirs a lot just a few years ago. And then there's this amazing awesome pop/rock/Latin duo from Bogotá, Colombia: Aterciopelados, and anything they put out is sure to be fantastic. The lead singer has a beautiful voice and they are playing live here in L.A. this coming Wednesday! Will I be going? I dunno, since it is a school night and all, but the urge is there!
Speaking of live shows, I went to see Travis just this past Friday at the historic Wiltern Theatre; recorded highlights of the show are here and here! I'm liking their new album too and they were so fun live! I was loving lead singer Fran Healy's Scottish brogue. Sexy, sexy! Their opening act were The Republic Tigers and they were pretty good too; their cover of Blondie's Heart of Glass was phenomenal! Anyway, it was standing room only for those of us on the floor, and there were lots of tall white dudes blocking my view here and there, but I managed to watch most of the show decently. I took some pictures, and many of them came out blurry or too dark, due to having to stretch my arms up above all dem people's heads and the lighting. There are a few surprises here and there, so this slideshow is still worth seeing!
