Get (e)xcited.

An enthusiast blog for those enthusiastic about what gets me enthused.

Just reminiscing about the three greatest albums of all time

I notice that ‘State of the Union’ has been trending on Twitter for a couple days now…

People must really dig this classic Rise Against tune, huh?

After four long years, Against Me! returns with what is arguably the band’s most interesting - and most important - work to date. Transgender Dysphoria Blues is not only an addition to the anthology of the band’s unique and always-exhilarating style of punk rock, but is the band’s first release since front-lady Laura Jane Grace came out as being a transgendered individual.  

As the title of the album implies, TDB is a both a reflection and celebration of Laura’s recognition of who she is. The album is unique in that it provides a voice for gendered variation in a genre of music where such voices aren’t heard enough. The above track is the first of the album and shares its name. Give it a listen.

The Mars Rover Spirit spent several days exploring this area and acquiring images and data on the physical characteristics of this large basaltic sand sheet, before moving downhill toward Home Plate.”

Ok, so it’s been a couple days since I posted an awesome Christmas song, formally ending my “10 Days of Awesome Christmas Music” extravaganza. Sorry - I got busy!

But I still got music to share, and share the music is what I intend to do! Today we got what is honestly one of my favourite holiday songs; a Jimmy Eat World cover of “Last Christmas.” This one’s killer folks, check it out. 

10 Days of Awesome Christmas Music - Day FOUR

Today we have an early-aughts pop punk Christmas tune courtesy of New Found Glory (who, as with The Used, really hit their stride in the early 2000s, imo). 

The track is called ‘Ex-Miss’ and is chock-full of all the teenage angst you would expect it to have. Enjoy!
