I had heard the new Feist album was supposed to be pretty good, but I had NO CLUE that My Moon My Man was such a great track! I heard it on a commercial a few times, then once or twice in a restaurant and was like whoh. It's leapfrogged into my top 5 jams of the year, alongside T&S's 'Nineteen', Pinback's 'Good to Sea', R. Kelly's 'Same Girl.' and that T-Pain/Cloud Cult Mashup. How has this song not been remixed like a million times yet? Put a thumping beat behind it and do that squelchy MSTRKRFT thing? BAM, major hit. Somebody's gotta do it right...that one remix I saw on hype machine is not enough.
Feist - My Moon My Man (mp3)
Every time I see The Thermals I tell myself I need to start listening to 'More Parts per Million' again. Those songs are so good. Couldn't find it, bought a new copy at the pool last Sunday and have been listening to it all week like it's new. So good! I was stoked to see they went back to a three-piece again, and hope their next album brings it back to their roots rather than continuing down this more refined-sounding path.
I get up early every morning to watch Saved by the Bell on TBS. I used to have better reasons, but now it's pretty much to watch TV and try and come up with something to write about here. While just about every episode feels like a classic, there are a handful of those moments that transcend the show and are their own legend. This morning was 'The Fight,' in which Zach and Slater go head to head over the same girl. Unlike R. and Usher, however, things get kinda violent...
Has there ever been a better on-camera television fight? This has to be one of the greatest, no? Especially considering the level of violence for such a campy show. Their little tiff at the end where they take turns letting the other pour punch down their pants felt much more approperate.
I went on a mini '86 Mets kick yesterday. I've been playing a bunch of RBI baseball lately, bought a Strawberry throwback tee at the Manhattan Mall and finally re-read this FHM article from 2000. If you've never read, even if you're not a baseball fan, it's a must read. To say that you'll never think of 1989 NL MVP Kevin Mitchell the same way is a GROSS understatement.
A reminder that, despite the ads that make the movie look awful, Superbad comes out tomorrow and it's one of the best movies of the year. No joke. I loved 'Knocked Up', but I thought this was a lot better overall. Especially over time. I will be going to see it again this weekend, and I hope a lot of other people do too. It's a teen comedy classic. I cannot recommend it more.
