From the NES of my heart

[ music | The Postal Service – Nothing Better ]

Somehow, a mind blowingly cool band has completely escaped my attention. This band is The Postal Service Click To Buy. One of my best friends has smacked me in the head with a shovel, and on the end of this shovel is this band’s album “Give Up”. It’s core indie-rock infused with synthpop instrumentation, samples ripped straight from the old 8-bit Nintendo, moody atmospheres, “Pet Shop Boys” styled lyrics, and “They Might Be Giants” vocals. Really awesome stuff. I just can’t figure out how the hell I missed this. Don’t make the same mistake.

New and Improved

[ music | No Doubt – New ]

I have always disliked exactly how the archives bit here worked. But I finally got off my ass and did something about it. Now, if you look to the left under “Fermions” you’ll see a link titled “Earlier Posts”. These work as you expect, 12 posts at a time (I display 12 here on the main page because I like to be different). And, if you’re back a page or three, another link appears under the “Earlier”, entitled “Later Posts”. Just like a real blog! Wow! Shiny! Ditto at the bottom, same links, same deal. Do I really need to explain this in the year 2005? So, now my archives don’t suck.
