beer, music movies, and more beer music movies.

Friday I went to see my buddy Sean perform a little set at Borders in Valencia on friday night. Jenn, Diane Dav and even Dav's parental units showed up for the occasion. Sean did good, he got brownie points with the crowd for free cd's. After the set we went over to BJ's and had appitizers and brew.

Sat I washed my car, and got fathers day gifts. Later in the evening I saw Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Dav and Jenn, it was a pretty good flick. Angelina is so hot and every movie since tomb raider makes her a better action star.

Sun was boring, I put on alot of Deathcab for Cutie and keep going back to sleep. I woke up around 4pm and was not tired evar. So much that I called Kara, we hung out at BJ's and watch the NBA Finals. I'm not a basketball person but that game kicked ass. Then we went back to my house and watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I dropped her off and got back to my house @ 2am. I tried to go back to sleep but I was not tired. I'll prolly pass out tonight but rightnow I think i'm running on 4 hours of sleep but it feels like 10. :-D

It's time for Chris' Music news once more! I discovered a few new albums. Everything old is new agian!

How did I totally miss E.L.O.
Electric Light Orchestra has to be one of the best rock/new sound groups to come out of their time. I have been listening to the Eternal Sunshine soundtrack today and I had an epiphany with ELO and the Polyphonic Spree.

Here is a small review of E.L.O. by someone who is a better writer then I.

ELO by Allmusic.com

The Electric Light Orchestra's ambitious yet irresistible fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements, and futuristic iconography rocketed the group to massive commercial success throughout the 1970s. ELO was formed in Birmingham, England in the autumn of 1970 from the ashes of the eccentric art-pop combo the Move, reuniting frontman Roy Wood with guitarist/composer Jeff Lynne, bassist Rick Price, and drummer Bev Bevan. Announcing their intentions to "pick up where 'I Am the Walrus' left off," the quartet sought to embellish their engagingly melodic rock with classical flourishes, tapping French horn player Bill Hunt and violinist Steve Woolam to record their self-titled debut LP (issued as No Answer in the U.S.). In the months between the sessions for the album and its eventual release, the Move embarked on their farewell tour, with Woolam exiting the ELO lineup prior to the enlistment of violinist Wilf Gibson, bassist Richard Tandy, and cellists Andy Craig and Hugh McDowell; despite the lengthy delay, Electric Light Orchestra sold strongly, buoyed by the success of the U.K. Top Ten hit "10538 Overture."

I have also been listening to Death Cab for Cutie's: "Transatlanticism" and "The Photo Album" which are fine pieces of work. Every song is great! I could keep them on loop all day.

i roll the window downAnd then begin to breathe inThe darkest country roadAnd the strong scent of evergreenFrom the passenger seat as you are driving me home.

Then looking upwards
I strain my eyes and try
To tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home.
