TWILIGHT SOUNDTRACK - the Mahsa and Nora version

First of all, let me just say that, while Gender Analyzer seems to think that there is a 67% likelyhood that my blog is written by a GUY, I'm pretty much 100% sure that this one entry alone will change their mind about this.

YES, I am a fan of Twilight. I know it's cheesy and in NO WAY a literary masterpiece, but sometimes I just love cheesy shit. I tivo Real Housewives of Atlanta, I frequent Perez Hilton's blog, I worship at the church of Chuck Bass, and I read books for teenagers about hot vampire/human romances. Tonight my friend Mahsa, the guest blogger for this entry, and I are going to a theater at midnight to see Twilight the movie version. we are JUST A LITTLE BIT EXCITED ABOUT THIS.

Annnnyyyways, a couple weeks ago I got a watermarked copy of the actual soundtrack in the mail. It had stuff like Paramore and linkin park on it. While I realize that this is music geared towards the 13 year olds that are SUPPOSED to be reading Twilight and lining up at midnight to see the movie, Mahsa and I agreed that it totally needed our own interpretation.

And so here is what Mahsa came up with (with a little help from me), and an explanation that I asked her to write. Enjoy!


Muse- Time is Running Out
The Wannadies- All Over Me
Coldplay- Reign of Love
Kill Hannah - Love Sick
AIR - Playground Love
The Duke Spirit - You Really Wake Up the Love in Me
The Cure - Close to Me
Julee Cruise- Into the Night
The Smashing Pumpkins- Ava Adore
Blonde Redhead- Pink Love
Muse- Glorious
The Depreciation Guild - Sky Ghosts
Depeche Mode- I Feel You
Queens of the Stone Age - The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret
Radiohead- True Love Waits

First of all I just want to say I'm super exited about tonight. I am trying hard to keep my Twilight obsession under some control as I am not a 13 year old girl and it is becoming somewhat inappropriate. All the effort I've put into making sure I understand that Rob Pattinson is not Edward Cullen is probably going to go to shit after I see this movie.

Nora and I have two additions to our Twilight movie outing. Justin....this boy I met in my apartment during halloween after hours and his friend Elinor. He was dressed up as a zombie ballerina. He told me a couple days ago that he has a Jacob outfit and I pretty much begged him to come see the movie with us. I'm so exited. He texted me last night to tell me he bought werewolf teeth. I'm not sure what exactly those are but I'm sure it'll be awesome. Oh apparently i have met Elinor as well on my couch and she was dressed up as wednesday adams. i don't remember much about her except she is a cat lady and her name is Israeli so i hope i didn't misspell it.

So I put together my own soundtrack for the movie because apparently the Twilight soundtrack is the number one record in the country. If that many people are going to be listening to a soundtrack they really should have put some better songs on it. I'm not trying to right a review for the soundtrack that's out now but it's just not anything I would listen to. I mean even the Muse song seems wrong. I love Muse but I when I think of the Twilight story, "Time is Running Out" would be a way better choice. There is one more thing that I want to specifically point out and it's Bella's lullaby. Edward has been waiting for bella for over a century. I can't believe that this is the song he would write for her. It sounds like elevator music...watered down and way too casual. My soundtrack doesnt have a lullaby on it because i think it should be something specially composed for the movie. So anyways i know this isn't perfect. It's just some songs I picked out of my itunes except for depreciation guild song sky ghosts which Nora sent to me and I think is awesome. So here anyways there you go. Here's my twilight soundtrack.

totally gratuitous vampire hotness. oh hai.

tomorrow night - HOT DAMN @ Public Assembly

When it gets cold out, I get bored. And when I get bored, my favorite activities are either: snuggling, or partying. So tomorrow night, in lieu of much needed snuggles, I will be throwing a party. There will be bands, there will be booze, there will be djs (myself and the super hot Sam FTW), and it will be nice and warm. Maybe we'll make some hot toddies. Maybe we WILL snuggle. You never know....

And here are the bands:


I first heard about this band because they were touring with The Bloodsugars(yay!). This five piece band makes some very catchy, down to earth, and sweet, kinda like the tasty pulp in my orange juice. The nine tracks on their 2008 album Short Films On Self Control, capture the rhythm of life, as you walk through it with a swing in your step. Oh, and there are SYNTHASIZERS too! Nothing makes me happier than a nicely placed synth.

Good Night, States are from Pittsburgh and they play tomorrow night at 9pm, so don't miss them!

Good Night States - Not Come Around

Good Night States - Only Thing


Of course I have already written about the Bloodsugars on this blog before, but let me reiterate again: THIS BAND BRINGS THE PARTY. Seriously, if you don't smile and dance a LITTLE when you see this band live, then I think you are dead inside. Come to PA tomorrow night and just TRY to prove me wrong. I dare you.

The Bloodsugars play tomorrow night at 10pm!

The Bloodsugars - Purpose Was Again


SOoooo... do you like the Shins? Well then the first song I'm linking below will pretty much smack you over the head with it's obvious uh.. comparisons. I think The Canon Logic kind of sound like what would happen if James Mercer took a lot of happy pills. Wow, is this show going to put you in a good mood or WHAT? You are totally going to run out and buy a bright pink sweater like the guy in the middle of their press photo. Don't lie! The Canon Logic have all the right guitar hooks and layered vocals in all the right places, and still sound pretty fresh to me.

See also: Their super sweet BLOG. The Canon Logic are on at 11pm!

The Canon Logic - The Run

The Canon Logic - I've Been Sleeping With Your Best Friend


Just a preview... see you tomorrow!

light your shoegaze on fire : autodrone

Sometimes I think that shoegaze music might be the perfect accompaniment ever to autumn/winter weather in new york. And the dark and soothing tones produced by local NYC band Autodrone on their debut album, Strike A Match completely fit this bill.

At times haunting and at other times crushingly huge, Autodrone's intricate songs float gracefully along the surface and then attack when you least expect in an almost devastating way. Their album kind of makes you want to put on an oversized flannel and cry about an ex-boyfriend, and then lace up some doc martens and go kick his ass afterwards (yay 90s rock).

The band will celebrate the release of Strike A Match tomorrow night (Thursday) at the Annex, at 10pm.
