!Id Engager!

Boy, what a week it has been. Tuesday was pretty hectic as Skecher shoes began to rain down from the sky as an earthquake almost killed me and put an end to this boring blog. This is the first time I have set my fingers on the keyboard since the Skecher sweatshop has me doing over time. You're probably wondering were I'm going with this right? Well, I came home today to find out that is posting the first single of the new OfMontreal album. I heard it with my own ears and Kevin Barnes has does it again. Head over to Pitchfork to download the single!

Never Give Up

I'm still a new grasshopper to this new blog world. Be patient my listeners, because "the clams" are bringing mp3s to your hard drive very soon. Just know that I will never give up.......

Grizzley's new Jam

Oh man! oh man! Grizzly Bear's new song is sooooooo good. I have to admit that their other song "While You Wait For the Others" didnt really make me want to bite the bait."Two Weeks" is another story because it gives me the goosebumps every time I give it a listen. I don't even want to write how perfect it is anymore because it's only taking up time from you. Now sit back, close your eyes and drift away.

My Apology to the Readers

Man, it's been a while since I've posted anything here. I want to apologize to any of the readers taking their time to visit the blog. Again, I deeply apologize but this new job that I've acquired, wears me out and leaves no time at all to write anything. Beginning on Monday the 29th of July, I will try my best to share my findings and expose all the scandals going on in the world even if it means beating my sister unconscious(Internet cord is in her room). My mom called me this morning from Zacatecas, Mexico to tell me that she got me the luchador mask I asked for;yesssss. Well I hope you guys have a a better weekend than this poor guy.

Late Fees Suck Balls

About 12:00 o'clock I received a phone call from my local video store reminding me of my late charges. Apparently, my mom lost the Reaping two weeks ago and time has brought my total fees to 64.95$.....Sometimes I get sooo angry that I just want to

Cut of Your Hands BME Pain Olympic style

Have you ever been on a band's myspace and your scrolling down trying to find the comment you left minutes ago when your eye catches another band with a catchy band name? Well that's exactly how I ran into Cut Off Your Hands. I listened to "You an I" and from that moment on, I became a fan. I was scheduled to go see them live with "We Are Scientists", but when I showed up, COYH was replaced with Oakland's finest "the Morning Benders". Anyways, If your not familiar with the hit song "oh girl", I highly recommend to do whatever is possible to get hold of the track. It just one of those songs that can't escape the repeat button.You'll have to wait until fall when their debut album hit the racks. Here's the video for "Expectations" that was roaming around the space.

So I decided to leave the fast food industry and climb the ladder for a better job. Beginning tommorrow morning, you'll be talking to an official Skechers employee. Just give me three weeks to learn the system and soon enough, I will be slanging brand new skechers kicks right out of the box! Tell me you wouldn't pay twenty bucks for a fresh pair like this....

I feel like putting on my sister's skecher heelies and skate my kitchen to "Love is All".

Unicorn Ivory

This past Sunday was a day with tragedy and euphoria all in 24 hours. After two years of being my slave and always giving me music on demand, my Ipod sadly went to Ipod heaven.I was down in the dumps the rest of the day as depression was getting the best of me. At about 6:00, I found myself holding back tears on my fat friend's couch. I have to admit that I have some pretty good friends as they agreed to make a song dedicated for my Ipod. We wrote some lyrics on a napkin and made a song within minutes. At about 6:10pm, Unicorn Ivory was officially a band thanks to Youtube.

The lineup

Guitar/Vocals-Bryant Merino
Synthesizer-Bryan Lozano
Bass-David Ortiz

Here's our first single "My Ipod"
