weekly six pack vol 6

i figured i’d sneak my weekly six pack in here before time ran out.  “popular” is a song from lil wayne’s new album i am not a human being. i love the hook and there’s also a line about chris johnson.  i put another avett brother’s tune in the six pack because we were supposed to go see them last night.  i’ve heard mixed reviews on the show, so i’m not too upset we missed it.  the third song by the dodo’s is called “fables.”  a friend of mine brought a boombox to the golf course last weekend and it came on his ipod.  i forgot how good it was.  “you’re gonna kill that girl” by the ramones would be on any halloween playlist i would make.  “magdalena” is a tune off of brandon flowers new record.  i know a million reasons why i shouldn’t like his music, but who cares.  the last track is “mine” from taylor swift.  her new record is good.  i’m not kidding.  if you don’t believe then check out the new rolling stone.  4 stars.  seriously.

 

the argument: the jean jacket

i started working on this post last week and since then i’ve seen jean jackets mentioned on gq and valet.  my inspiration for the post was a direct result of the photo above – which i believe is being used as a promo shot for brandon flowers’ new solo album.  it’s hard not to notice the jacket before you realize who’s in the photo.  it’s an alexander mcqueen jacket that flowers bought five years ago.  he said he wears it 90% of his days.  i believe it.  it looks worn in all the right places.

all canadian tux jokes aside, do jean jackets ever go out of style?  i remember seeing ryan adams wear one (pic after jump) when i was in college and then trying to find something like it online.  i never pulled the trigger because i knew i would catch hell from my friends.  i guess my point being: buy one now, wear it, hide it, and pull it back out when it’s relevant again in 10 years.

weekly six pack vol 1

each week i’m going to feature a weekly “6 pack” (not the first time this has been used) of songs that are on heavy rotation in my car or office.  above is the first entry.  you probably won’t agree with everything i post and i don’t expect you to, but i hope every now and again you find one song or artist that will make it into your rotation.  enjoy.
