an adam levine appreciation post

the voice is totally making me worship this man. and moves like jagger is catchy as fuck (while also being an annoying earworm of a song). but adam levine man! the man is so earnest. he hides it under the adam levine-ness of his whole charmer act. the wink. the smile. *swoon* but these battle rounds, he's all business while really really appreciating the people on his team. you know he means what he says. this man would not lie to you. he's got the face going for him. it's a face you can believe. look at this face.

what i like about music #4: pinkerton

this album is like that scene in almost famous: "I'm flying high over Tupelo, Mississippi...with America's hottest band...and we're all about to die." them yelling truths at each other. dirty little deep down dark secrets that must be revealed in the last moments of your life. he's yelling his secrets at the universe for all to hear, real loud and unafraid because soon he will be dead and not around to see the fallout or feel the embarrassment. things that must be said before the end. these are the things you do not say:

…And I don't wanna be an old man anymore
It's been a year or two since I was out on the floor
Shakin' booty, makin' sweet love all the night
It's time I got back to the Good Life
It's time i got back, it's time i got back
and I don't even know how I got off the track
I wanna go back…Yeah!
Weezer, The Good Life

pinkerton twitter lols

They don't make stationery like this where I'm from
So fragile, so refined
So I sniff and I lick your envelope
And fall to little pieces every time
I wonder what clothes you wear to school
I wonder how you decorate your room
I wonder how you touch yourself
And curse myself for being across the sea 

I'm a lot like you so please
Hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you
And you'd be good for me
Weezer, El Scorcho

saying grace

when life is shit/in my emo moments i usually reach for hanson/vampire weekend/phish or elliott smith/the smiths for a good ol' wallow in the muck and hopelessness that is life. but today i find myself watching geeks doing their geek thing. this is the best type of conversation. there are lols. there are serious, well reasoned discussions which are nowhere near the bickering mess of hate that is youtube comments/imdb forums. there is joy. this is everything. and i thank you topher grace. i/we may never see Star Wars: Episode III.5: The Editor Strikes Back but today, this is enough. that'll do topher, that'll do. consider spiderman 3 forgotten. done.
