Israel... The Things I Find

Tonight, I had a couple friends over to watch a movie. In the spirit of the season we chose to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. The fascinating part about this episode was the incorporation of Franklin, the only black character in the world of Charlie Brown. If you look him up on wikipedia, there are references to Franklin being Schulz's manifestation of political opinion against segregation. However, certain things do seem to catch one's eye in the 1973 special A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Notably, Franklin dresses in a rather loud pair of striped trousers, plays on a baseball team (the jackie robinson effect), and greets charlie brown with low-five handshakes.  what's wrong with this picture?
and this one?
and thus, franchise defeats meaning.

Fuck Guitar Hero

Please... let's stop blurring the line between music and video games.  

Anyway, now that I've said that, I must admit that I've finally decided it's pointless to put up my playlist from the radio shows anyway, because I don't even like most of what we play.

What has music become to me?  It's hard to find something I get really excited about these days...  I feel de-sensitized.

So, tonight was the night of the USC acoustic cafe where my good friend and fellow musician Cayla Fralick played a wonderful set.  We've been discussing her doing guest vocals on the the current demo album I'm recording - Success to the British Navy, under the Moniker Thoreau.
Another great thing that happened tonight is that my good friend David, who runs the SCene SC music aggregator blog, has enlisted me into the organization's staff.  This means I get business cards... for truth.  If you're in a band and looking to sell ad space on the site itself, hit David up.

Unfortunately, I doubt I will be attending the Copeland show tomorrow at New Brooklyn Tavern, good journalism grades are a primary achievement.  It's still sure to be awesome though.
