The Raveonettes New Album 'Observer'

The Raveonettes have come out with another album, and--no surprise--it sounds exactly like their last five. But how much can you complain when they sound this good?
Watch the video for 'Observer.'

Taylor Swift is so annoying

Just when you thought she couldn't get any more annoying or cliche. 

Taylor even took to MTV, saying she "wanted the video to look as quirky as the song sounds." UGH GAG ME.

M.I.A. "Bad Girls"

M.I.A.'s new video for "Bad Girls"--seriously obsessed! The video actually captures a lot of what it's like in the Middle East (apathy, car races). I hope this wins at the VMAs tonight. It's amazing.

10 of the strangest things sold on Amazon

When I had amazon prime, I bought everything on amazon.  Last year I bought all of my family's Christmas gifts from amazon. I bought a laptop case, two SD cards, shorts, clogs, lotion, all of my textbooks, a lolcats book, and an umbrella (among other things). I bought soap on amazon. Twice. Unfortunately I no longer have free two-day shipping but I still remember thinking about buying some really weird stuff just because like, it was there.

1. Wolf Urine
So apparently some people sprinkle wolf urine on their gardens to keep deer and other animals out. I didn't always know this so pretend like I didn't tell you that and it's funnier and more bizarre. Also the reviews on this are hilarious. Oh look--it's on sale!
The most troubling part of this is probably the shipping process. What if the container leaks? What if the smell actually lures wolves? The possibilities for diaster are endless.

2.Uranium Ore
Not really sure how this is legal. Guess it's $50 for a reason.

3. Fresh Whole Rabbit
So this is rabbit is for you to prepare and eat in your home. It helps that the picture is already so appetizing.
jk it looks like a dead fetus :(

Why is this anti-birth control book $132? It's not even hardback!  Also the description was in all caps so I didn't read it but it's probably pretty funny so I'll post a screenshot here. 
Not really sure what you would use this for. Ages 18+. This is mainly just disgusting.

Data disintegrators are high security machines capable of destroying:
  • All types of paper
  • Credit Cards
  • Company I.D. badges
  • Audio tapes and cassettes
  • Floppy disk
  • CD-Rom/DVD
  • Plastic Credit Cards
  • View Graphs
  • Microfilm
  • 4mm and 8mm cassettes
  • Currency
  • Books and Manuals
  • Securities, Stocks and Bonds
It is approved by the U.S. Department of State to discard even the most confidential files. So basically, if you're super paranoid and a regular shredder/scissors won't work,  it might be worth the $68,000. Also it's lookin pretty retro, so these will probably come back in style. Be the first of your friends to instagram it.

I don't know whats going on here. It honestly reminds me of this time two days ago when the lock button on my iphone wasn't working and I almost sent a bunch of people texts that said "zzzzzlkd;flkdf  ;;//;;234 ....... ..adfgekzzzzzz." Either way, the reviews say that jjjj really hit it home on this one.(read the reviews they are funny)

For people who hate Nancy Pelosi so much, they literally want to wipe their butts with her face. Made possible by the internet. In no other country would you be allowed to spear poop all over a politician's face. Thanks America!!!!

For some reason this really grosses me out. You know when you think you're about to take a sip of milk but it's water and it's really gross? Imagine that with meatballs and bubblegum. Imagine the texture of meatballs and the flavor of bubblegum. My brain is throwing up. If you somehow prank me with these I will never talk to you again. Serious.
Do you ever see a squirrel running around in the forest and think, man that thing should really be wearing some underpants! It's so unhygienic! Then these are definitely for you. 
In all seriousness though, I don't understand how this would work. First off, the only way you can ever get close enough to a squirrel is through luring it with peanuts. That would mean a squirrel mouth/teeth would be near/on you. Disease central! Squirrel underpants are probably how AIDS got started. The risk of squirrel bite is SO high, you probably have a 90% change of getting squirrel rabies. People have to go to the hospital and get shots when they get bitten by dogs, and people keep those things in their homes as pets and let them run their tongues all over their children. Think of how much more disgusting squirrels probably are. I rest my case.

Guilty Pleasures I actually feel bad about

I avoid using the term "guilty pleasures," because there are few things I love that I am actually ashamed of. I'm not saying that because I only listen to things that are generally accepted as coolI have been known to jam Destiny's Child, The Partridge Family, Justin Bieber, and Call Me Maybe more than normal. But I don't feel bad about that. Here are bands that I listen to, like, and am ashamed of. 

Third Eye Blind

do do do do do doo do do do do do do doo do do do do do doo do do do.
I'm packed and I'm holdin she's living she's growin she lives for me says she lives for me ovation the world motivation she comes round and she goes down with me and i'll make her smile make her talk to you doeverwhatyouwannadocominoveryou
I don't even think those are the right lyrics, but that was my attempt to transcribe what happens whenever any song from this album starts playing: I immediately start singing along. I don't know how anyone couldn't. This album sort of changed my life, and I wish I were kidding, but I'm being 79% serious. When I was thirteen I was curious about music and went through my dad's CD collection. This was one of the first things I found. Thank you dad for having such awesome taste in music because I am still obsessed with Third Eye Blind and it is embarassing and I know all the words to all their songs, but I actually really LOVE them and I know it's weird and lame but I don't care. TEB rules, here's a link for you to listen to the whole album you're welcome.

Kylie Minogue

I don't know what it is, but I think Kylie Minogue is really cool. Growing up, all we got was MTV arabia, which played a lot of stuff like this which was okay but didn't really appeal to me that much. Kylie's music was in English, and I seemed to identify with it a lot more than European pop music for some reason. I guess it makes sense; she's like the Australian Britney. And those red cone-head outfits? So Devo. Plus that weird white jumpsuit/hoodie thing she wears is sort of awesome. Yeah, I am just into it.

Linkin Park

I remember seeing this video and having the distinct thought "Is this cool?" I honestly didn't know. And I still don't know if people actually liked Linkin Park, or if they were just making fun of the screaming and weird emo-anime vibes. In high school, I had a friend, let's call him Devin. Devin was the tallest, skinniest person I had ever met. He was Thai and obsessed with the internet and would move his hands like a crazed scientist and say things in weird voices and creep people out. In 3rd-year Spanish we were assigned to make children's picture books, and the main character of his was pedobear. Of course our teacher had never been on 4chan and didn't know what pedobear was but thought it was really cute and gave Devin an A+ and everyone was kinda annoyed but still laughing. ANYWAYS, we somehow became really good friends (despite him always saying things like "I HATE CURTAINS!!!!") and had a math class where Devin would imitate Linkin park's screaming in this song but only like 3 times more intense and everytime he did it I would bust up laughing. We would constantly make fun of Linkin Park but still listen to them. To this day I can't really take Linkin Park seriously or listen to them without laughing so I guess I don't really like them but I do listen to them for entertainment so it is still slightly embarrassing.

Sheryl Crow/Alanis Morissette

In my head, these are the same person. I love that both of these are just like "F THAT" songs. YEAH GIRL POWER. The world needs more angry women.

Savage Garden/Train
Again, these bands are the same thing in my mind. Also they haven't come out with anything in 10 years, so don't even try to talk to me about that hey soul sister song because it doesn't exist. 

"Can you imagine no love, pride, deep fried chicken?"Train
I feel like that explains itself.
Also, does anyone remember on Brad's season of the bachelor when he was on a date with Jackie and Train came and performed? Ugh. That entire thing made me want to gag because Jackie is so annoying and everything she says is dumb and she has a weird nose. Plus Train isn't even good anymore. I was forgetting that Train was still together and that kinda ruined it for me LONG LIVE TRAIN OF THE 90s.

When I was 10, I thought this song was SO GOOD and romantic. I still hope someone proposes to me with this song playing in the background. I would have to decline, but I plan on being proposed to several times by several different men so I'll be okay. But don't tell me this song isn't mesmerizing and strangely catchy. 

What is the future of this blog?

I just don't know, -10 followers, I just don't know. If you want to stick around, I may be posting about stuff you hate, stuff you really don't care about, stuff you are neutral about, and stuff that doesn't make you throw up. No guarantees though, I AM PRETTY UNPREDICTABLE. We'll see what happens.

Live, Love, L.O.L.,

New Video: St. Vincent 'Cheerleader'

St. Vincent's latest video, released just today, features a ginormous Annie Clark on a museum display. The beautiful Annie Clark is definitely a work of art, and as she tries to escape the confines of her exhibit, her ceramic body shatters. I love the idea of breaking free from societal/social bounds, even if it destroys you. Cheerleader is definitely one of the standout tracks from the incredible album, "Strange Mercy."

My First Hardcore Song

This 8-year old Australia girl named Juliet sings about her love of her dog Robert and her fishes in her first hardcore song. Complete with sick dance moves, shredding guitars, and a stuffed-animal mosh pit, we can't wait to hear more from the adorable hard rocker.

Sacrilegious Christian "My Humps" is Hilarious

These two kids have jokingly rewritten pop songs to make them about Christianity. And it's hilarious. Enjoy.

My Holy Christian Faith (My Humps by the Black Eyed Peas)
Don't Cha Wish Your Savior Was Right Like Mine (Don't Cha by the Pussycat Dolls)

New Order News

The English 80's rock-synth band New Order has been in the news a lot lately, although their last album was released in 2005. The band announced in September of last year that they would reunite to play charity shows under the name New Order, but without bassist  Peter Hook. Hook has been known to call names, deeming Bernard Sumner and Morrissey "twats," and the 55-year old also recently called his former band-makes "dickheads." Mature. In the meantime, Hook works with lawyers to fight the use of the band's name without his inclusion or consent,  while "New Order" plans to play Benicassim in Spain later this year.

On a slightly different note, members of the band were in the news again when Disney came out with a Mickey Mouse Joy Division-inspired t-shirt, featuring a rip-off of the "Unknown Pleasures" artwork in the all too familiar mouse ears shape. A creepy-looking mustached man can be seen modeling the shirt which leads me to believe that Disney has finally decided to market to the middle-aged hipster man. Disney took the shirts down from their website after only two days, but you can still try to score one on ebay, although it may cost you up to $200.

Despite the drama, New Order plans to release outtakes from their last studio album in March. The album will be called "The Lost Sirens," and you can pre-order it here.
