On May 11, 1981, the world lost Nesta Robert Marley, better know as Bob Marley to cancer at the age of 36. Credited with helping spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafair movement to a worldwide audience, he remains the most widely known and best selling performer of reggae music, having sold over 75 million albums worldwide. Even in the dead of winter, you can’t help but feel a little warmer when listening to one of Marley’s songs. Rest in Peace Bob Marley, and thank you for your voice and influence, both musically and beyond.
Happy Wedding Day to my dear friends Scott and Allison. Can’t wait to celebrate with you.
Love this song right now (called “Anna Sun” by Walk The Moon, indie rock band from Cincinnati from their self titled debut album).
New favorite song. It’s called “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood, a California based band, on their first album, ‘I Love You’. Listen. It will grow on you.
Concert Alert! Got two big ones coming up this summer: The Rolling Stones on June 18th, and the Eagles on July 16th. Going with my brother to both. We both have never seen either of these bands, so we’re pretty excited. Can’t wait!
How fitting, following the picture I put up earlier? Just found out that Arizona based band Jimmy Eat World will release their seventh studio album, titled ‘Damage” on 6/11/13 via their new label, RCA (congrats on the new label guys, I know you didn’t have one for a bit recently). The band will be touring to support the album (come to Philly soon please).
Here is the tracklisting for ‘Damage’:
4. Book of Love
5. I Will Steal You Back
6. Please Say No
7. How’d You Have Me
8. No, Never
10. You Were Good
Welcome back, Jimmy Eat World! Can’t wait to see and hear you.
Got a new camera (a Canon Powershot SX 260), so I’ve been playing around with it and getting used to its features. One of them is the color accent feature (it lets me single out a particular color, which making the rest of the picture black and white). Pretty cool feature. My Jimmy Eat World t-shirt (from their “Chase This Light” Tour in 2007) looks pretty good.
