As I was making my way through the D3 Archives I came across two things. One was this idea to make a mix cd and then just leave it somewhere to be found, like a bus or a coffee shop, and hope someone gives it a listen. You really don't get anything out of it, but it's fun to make, my cd is as follows:

1. Beastie Boys - Twenty Questions (2:28)
2. Cat Power - Baby Doll (2:58)
3. The Clash - I'm Not Down (3:06)
4. Wilco - Jesus, Etc. (3:51)
5. Belle and Sebastian - I Don't Love Anymore (3:55)
6. The Killers - Mr. Brightside (3:42)
7. Dismemberment Plan - The City (4:26)
8. English Beat - Mirror In The Bathroom (3:08)
9. The Cure - Close To Me (3:40)
10. The Darkness - Givin' Up (3:34)
11. The Who - The Kids Are Alright [Stereo] (3:10)
12. Creation - Making Time (2:55)
13. Stephen Malkmus - The Hook (3:03)
14. Need New Body - Show Me Your Heart (4:06)
15. The Rolling Stones - Not Fade Away (1:49)
16. Buddy Holly - Oh Boy! (2:08)
17. The Stooges - I Wanna Be Your Dog (3:05)
18. The Streets - Let's Push Things Forward (3:51)
19. The Specials - Gangsters (2:48)
20. The Unicorns - Sea Ghost (3:44)
21. Tub Ring - Bernard's Three Awakenings (1:59)
22. Blur - We've Got a File On You (1:02)
23. Wall Of Voodoo - Mexican Radio (4:08)
24. Van Morrison - Domino (3:05)
25. The Faces - Ooh La La (3:28)

Now, if anyone is still reading after that (or before that even), the other thing I came across was something Maciej refered to as the Great CD Swap. I wish I had known this "Matt" kid back then, cause it sounds like fun. I think we need a Great CD Swap Part 2 or 3 or whatever you left off on. So yeah, Maciej, get on that one.

And for Pete's sake, check Rocket Grande please. Help us kill October and make December the winner.
We update every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Promise. This newest one is about a certain creep everyone loves. So yeah, check it.

Last night after a dance party (yeah, we have those down here) I was looking for something to do while Dan and Blanco played Topspin in my room until 5 in the morning. I wanted something entertaining and easy, and I found it. I went through the D3 Blog archive. And what an archive it is. It brings back those memories faster than ginko baloba and memory tea. Anyway, here are some links they had that still work/are really important in some way.

Blade Trinity. Wellitchy, wellitchy, wellitchy. Alright, this movie is a Trinity, you got the Father (Blade/Wesley Snipes), the Son (Hannibal King/Ryan Reynolds
) and the Really Crappy Movie. Ha! You thought I was going to say Holy Ghost! Anyway, this movie should be a trinity of movies, ie. they should split it into three movies, which is what I am going to do. The Father film is great, four stars, mostly because Wesley snipes is the biggest badass of our generation. Seriously, this part of the movie is amazing, anything where Wesley Snipes is on screen is great, the action is great, the acting is great, it just works. The second movie, the Son one, is also good. Ryan Reynolds is a hoot. He uses more colorful language than a well seasoned trucker with a flat tire and a truckload of wet dogs. His wit, and action is placed. That brings us to the third part of the Trinity, the Really Crappy Movie. Anything else in this film sucks. The writing, the acting (Jessica Biel should be shot with her own bow), the CGI... gah, it's a mess. There are parts where I laughed out loud at the absurdity of the film. Mostly when anyone other than Wesley and Ryan opened their mouths. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the film immensely, but mostly cause it was unintentionally funny or Ryan and Welsey were on screen. Anyway, this is an entertaining film if you can take it with a grain of salt and enjoy the really cool parts and laugh at the bad stuff. And laugh you shall.

Also, why in God's name, does anyone who isn't Legolass, need a bow when you have a four barreled gun that shoots heat seeking rockets? And someone needs to fill the writers in about viruses and stuff.

Oh, yeah, and I forgot to mention: BLADE TRINITY IS THE MOST RACIST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN. But that is a different rant.

Why Franz Ferdinand is the best band of 2004:

  • "...I'm so drunk I don't mind if you kill me..."
  • "So I'm shopping... shopping for Blood..."
  • That synth thing in Van Tango
  • "All the boys I hate, all the girls I hate..."
  • "All for you, all for you, all for you Sophia..."
  • Tempo Change in Take Me Out
  • "You can feel my lips undress your eyes..."
  • "We're gonna burn this city, burn this city!"
  • The guitar riff in Auf Achse durring the chorus then the talking part with the "Thinking of your sins I die..."
  • "Goodbye girl you know it's only love..."
  • "Sticky hips, sticky hips, stubble on my sticky lips..."
  • "So come on home... but don't forget to leave."
  • The song 40' (Oh... Lalalalalalalalalalalala... Lalalalalalalala...Ohhhh... fourty feet remain!"

There you have it. Franz Ferdinand. Best Band of '04.
