For someone who loves menswear as much as I do (and er, as much as Pinkie does too, I might add) fall is a very special time of year. Oh yes, yes, yes indeed. We are not summer people. We like to be dressed, and see people who are dressed. Ya dig?
Who's next, bar mitzvah DJ's? Or, this is totes your fault, Ultragrrl. (We kid, of course...) The Wall Street Journal ran a story today about how young couples planning their weddings, with their impeccable taste and their iPods, are offering stiff competition to wedding DJs. BTW, according to Allison Emmerson, bride, graduate student, and White Stripes and Bowie fan: "Playing music is not brain surgery," she says. "If you have good music and you have a fun atmosphere, you're going to have people dancing." Someone get that girl a DJ gig on Tuesday nights at the new Alchemize in Cincy! However, I suppose you'll be glad to know that a) wedding DJ's don't generally have Weezer in their collections and b) high-priced wedding planners look down on the iPod as "unprofessional" so, you know, basically there isn't really a story here, now is there? (link good for seven days only!)
And, everyone's all over this -- but Say Hi To Your Mom needs a girl singer. Perhaps they're taking a page from the Bound Stems' playbook? Are there any other Lady InterWeb Celebs out there up for the task? All I can think of is Reese Witherspoon as June Carter in Walk The Line: "Get me out of this car with all these boys!"
And yeah, I know we already told you about The Blow's "Pile of Gold" already today, but The Anchor Center wins some prize for best track pimp of the day. SERIOUSLY. Go. Watch. Laugh.
Into the magic time machine. Or, what we added to the iTunes 2 years ago today. Or, I haven't had time to listen to anything new for days. Or, the only reason I even noticed this at all is because I've had to clean out my iTunes library on my work machine beacause it's too massive for words:
Beat Happening -- Our Secret
The Mountian Goats -- Cubs in Five
The Twilight Singers -- Hyperballad
Architecture in Helsinki -- Spring 2008
Frog Eyes -- The Oscillator's Hum (I love how Carey Mercer sounds like a bizzaro Tom Jones. NO! REALLY!)
