Regina Spektor Far

Regina Spektor's new album Far is out and it is a great piece of work. The new album has everything we love Spektor for, from her kooky fun romps to her serious pieces it's all here. I've been listening to the album for the last few days and today my daughter announced that she "loved this girl", that's a ringing endorsement in my book.
What do you know, two of my favorite songs from the album have videos.

Random stuff and junk

Christies auction house has a pop culture auction coming up soon and the catalog is pretty cool, check it out here. They have a little bit of everything; punk posters, guitars from Cobain and Stevie Ray Vaughn as well as Star Trek stuff and William Gibson's Johnny Mnemonic script.

This great article is about our neighborhood. I never knew these problems existed, I just think the signs are funny and try not to get run over by the Chinese dudes pushing their dollies.

The Pixies Minotaur

The unbelievable band The Pixies have a mind blowing new "box set" coming out soon. It comes in a deluxe edition that retails for $175 and a limited edition that runs $495!! Check out the run down here, it sounds worth it to me. There is a really cool write up and interview with Black Francis at wired.

Built to Spill

Yesterday my Ipod reminded me that Built to Spill is an amazing band by playing "Big Dipper" and "Goin' against your mind" back to back.

Here is the most excellent video for "Conventional Wisdom".
