…I finally got the chance to see them live last Wednesday.

It looked a lot like this (only less shitty):

And here’s their set list:

Glad I finally got to see them,


…a new song!

“Chase the Tear” (as in what you do to a piece of paper, not the liquid that comes out of your eyes) is a new single from the trio. The track was created for Amnesty International, and is available for download at a cost of .99 cents. All proceeds go toward Amnesty International’s human rights work.

Check out the video below, and click here to buy a copy of the MP3.

Sweet charity,


Like a lot of people, I have a habit of associating music with the seasons. The Beastie Boys, for example, are good summer-listening music, while Dave Brubeck sounds best during the three frigid months of winter.

My favorite batch of music is what I like to refer to as “fall music.” I don’t know what it is about this music that makes it sound better during autumn, but (at least in my brain) that fact exists nonetheless.

Listed here (in no particular order) are my top ten favorite albums of fall. Some of them you’ve more than likely heard, while others might be a little more obscure. I encourage you to give all of them a listen, especially before December 21st.

If you have any of your own personal fall favorites, be sure to list them below in the comments section.


1. DJ Shadow “Endtroducing…”

2. Air “The Virgin Suicides: Original Motion Picture Score”

3. Moby “Play”

4. Rjd2 “Deadringer”

5. Nine Inch Nails “The Downward Spiral”

6. Radiohead “Kid A”

7. Portishead “Dummy”/”Portishead” (tie)

8. Plastikman “Consumed”

9. The Roots “Things Fall Apart”

10. Marvin Pontiac “The Legendary Marvin Pontiac”

Tricky and Tool are eleven and twelve,


Old Poop!
