Currently listening to Zoey Van Goey’s “The Best Treasure Stays Buried”. Nothing life changing here, but it’s very pleasant.
Just biding time until May’s amazing string of awesome bands releasing albums. Primarily I’m talking about Minus the Bear, Band of Horses, The Hold Steady, and LCD Soundsystem. That’s a year’s worth of releases coming out in one month.
Also, in the food for thought department, Michael Medved questions this concept that the world is “safer” without nuclear weapons here. Certainly the world would be “safer” if the weapons had never been created in the first place, but it doesn’t make sense to give them up now and count on some sort of change of heart in our enemies. The money quote: “On the one hand, the administration suggests that the push toward disarmament will inspire better behavior from Iran and North Korea—ignoring the fact that whenever a nation reduces or limits its own power, it only encourages more aggressiveness from its adversaries.” I, for one, don’t want to count on “inspiring good behavior”.
Quick Movie Review:
Date Movie (2.5 stars) – Mildy likeable and full of half-laughs, Date Movie is almost good, but really falls short of being memorable. Too bad, because the last thing Tina Fey touched—Mean Girls—was amazing.
