Hello All,

So why am I doing this..hmm..basically what this blog is for is to post album reviews, movies and things that are going on with me. I think its the easiest way to keep everyone posted on what I'm into and whats going on. So, why should you care?....A lot of people have been asking me for music and movie updates, whats good, what sucks and what you need to hear, see and discover and thats cool. Well, the best way to display that is through this and reach as many people as I can, and if you decide to click on the little link in my profile and check out what I gotta say....Thanks...if not, piss off :). I will try and update this as often as I can. I think I can include photo's to this as well, so as soon as I learn how to navigate and use this better, the content will beef up.

Also, for those of you that know me best, my spelling and grammer will be terrable as always. Thank God for the person that created spellcheck.

As for now check out:

Brand New's new album "The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me." Fellow Long Island natives of mine have grown up and gotten out of the "emo" genre that they helped launch to the mainstream. Singer Jesse Lacey has written some of the darkest and deepest lyrics this past year. From the track "Millstone," Lacey expresses:

"I used to pray a God was listening.I used to make my parents proud.I was the glue that kept my friends together,Now they don't talk and we don't go out.I used to know the name of every person I kissed.Now I made this bed and I can't fall asleep in it."

Just a taste of what the rest of the record is like, it sounds like the slower songs from Deja Entandu mixed with a spiritual edge and division not herd since U2's "War." Lacey is a divided soul that cant make up his mind about anything, hence probably why the record took almost three years to make.

Unfortunaly the creative work of this band is on tour with the uncreative Dashboard Confessional this holiday season. They make a tript MSG on Dec. 8, its worth it to see Brand New (who put on one hell of a live show), and their new material. Then get up and leave after their set is done so you dont have to suffer through the 13 and 16 year old girls screaming at Chris Carrabba (Emo"s Nick Lachey).

So thats what this blog will be about. Until next time.
