This month’s songs of the month come at the end of the month because it has taken me that long to find some really great new music (or rather, new to me music). But, at last, here it is.
This month’s post is dedicated to one band. Cartel.
Now, I had heard of Cartel several years ago but I hadn’t ever really listened to their music. Luckily, that changed over spring break. One of my friends happened to have a Cartel cd and at some point durring the 30 hours of driving played it.
I love them. Their pop/punkyness comes with a bit of a hard edge at times but is comfortably balanced out by blindingly heart felt balads.
Give them a listen. You won’t regret a moment of it.
It’s been a while since I wrote anything as you may have noticed. Sad, I know… but take heart because I’m back from beautiful Nags Head, NC. I’m rested, relaxed, and ready to blog.
But before I get back into the swing of things let me deliver on some of the promised vacation videos and pictures.
Nags Head is awesome and I had a blast with my friends. I have a ton of video to edit and put up online. At the moment I only have one video that’s finished and ready for your viewing pleasure… It’s from our Rita’s Road Trip.
You see on Thursday I left my beach house to attend the Media Research Center’s Dishonor awards in DC. My friends went with me and on the drive back we decided to hit every Rita’s water ice we possibly could for free water ice.
Yes… that’s right, not only is Obama our new savior but he is now our new Pillsbury Doughboy.
Actually, judging by this comment from the owner of the cafe that Obama has shown his grace upon maybe he is a strange doughboy messiah combination, or, in other words, he is a savory savior:
“I think everybody just … thought, ‘Oh, great cookie, great president _ the world is a happy place. Barack’s going to fix all the problems and if I have a bite of this cookie it’s going to make me feel good,'”
