hmm well I wasn't able to make the draft since I was in the air flying back to Minneapolis at the time but it could have been worse. I'm fine with the first half, it's really only the part where the computer drafted 4 backup rbs that I'm baffled by...
God that Swans albums is something else. I'm still trying to process it and I've listened to it at least 5 times now. I'm going to see Refused in 2 days, something I've hoped to do for like 5 years now, and yet I'm at least twice as excited to see Swans next month.
If you guys are enjoying this record, the two things they released before it are also well worth checking out. my father will guide me up a rope to the sky is significantly more accessible than the Seer but just as dark. The songs are more like something that could actually be called songs.. The other thing they released was a live album to help cover the costs of recording The Seer. It's like 2 hours long and contains a mix of stuff from both of these recent albums.
Austin is just an awesome city to be in regardless. That lineup is stellar too. The idea that you get to go to the show and get free beer for basically the same price as Sasquatch is kind of absurd when you think about it.
I haven't given in my final 'Girls' report. I loved the first 3 and sort of the 4th episode, but lost supreme interest as a result of how the characters and story lines were treated in the back half of the season. I finished it out but was definitely let down by the end of it. However I still think that Lena Dunham is impressive in regards to all the 'hats' she wears as writer, director and star and will definitely be interested in her future projects.
This is interesting because I felt the complete opposite. I really need to rewatch the first few episodes because I had all of the same complaints Drew had until I got used to the show. It took me awhile to understand what she was trying to do and get in sync with the characters.
Stormy, Tiny Furniture is a stand alone thing but it has the exact same tone and a lot of the same actors involved. I thought it was better than the show but I think I'm in the minority with that opinion. It's definitely worth a watch if you like Girls but don't expect anything radically different.
