This blog is intended to showcase the widely overlooked weirdness in Baltimore. At one point in time a friend mentioned that he wanted to publish a book entitled the Psychedelic Tour of Baltimore, this site is inspired by and dedicated to Uncle Lead. I often post others photos out of admiration. If I have posted one of your photos against your liking, please let me know and I will remove it as soon as I can. If you don't mind me posting them let me know and thank you for your amazing photos.

I'm Draggin' and So Was My Muffler

This morning I was heading out to work and heard a clunk. I thought what the hell was that? Did I run over a cat? Oh well, I'm gonna be late for work. A few more feet and I heard this annoying grinding sound. My neighbor, also leaving for work, yelled over, "your muffler's hanging off." Lovely!! Six hours later I have a new muffler after strugling to remove it myself and ultimately having it towed. Hey I got a free chrome tip with an internet coupon. Woo Hoo free stuff. How free can it be when you dish out a few C notes? In honor of my auto-woe-bile here is some old Modest Mouse.

Painting the kitchen today

It is my last shot at getting this right. Right now I'm listening to BOAT to give me a little bit of moral support. I guess I'm staying indoors on a day the sun may reign.

¡Viva la Revolucion!

Today begins my one man revolution against breakfast and lunch! Oh and Sunday sobriety too. We are headed to Little Havannah this morning for their brunch. I've been talking about this for years it seems and finally I am getting off my ass and doing something about it.

Why is Jeff Tweedy so evil?

I know every great band has to take advantage of marketing. Look at the Rolling Stones and the Super Bowl. Do I need to say any more? I think the boys in Wilco have gone too far however. Ground Squirrel Bait?!? Is it bait for squirrels that is ground up or, dare I say it, bait made from ground up squirrels? I think they should stick to science fiction movie prop replicas.

I've read posts on the interweb about Sirrius radio, specifically Left of Center, playing the same songs over and over. Now that may be the case for a few songs like Pretty Girls Make Graves - The Number although I am quite fond of it, but I have found some gems hidden amongst the repeats. I quite like Snowglobe. There has not been much talk of them for a while so it needs to begin regin here and now. They have the sort of feel good pop that gets you warm and jiggly reminiscent of The Shins, not that they are a similar band.

The Dead Science

... so anyway, I found Frog Eyes on Absolutely Kosher Records, and after a small search around, a very samll search, I came across The Dead Science. I say a small search, becuase I didn't look too long. There is much I wish to see on that site. The Dead Science have a trancy scare about them or a scary trance. Kind of like Thee More Shallows without the kid piano or tool without the whatever they may be known for. The music is a heavy space and the vocals have that hazy, mumbly quality that I love so much anymore.

Where have I been?

I have been quite busy with school and family, so the two of you that have stumbled on this confer. The one of you that knows me explain things to the other. I have been expanding the memory that my iTunes takes up when it opens. I'm stopping when my song collection is as large as my share of the national debt. I hope they do something about it soon brecause I'll need a bigger hard drive. So here is a song for you, the most recent.
