Interview



I recently had the opportunity to sit down with The Hush Sound's Greta Salpeter, and it was an awesome experience. I could tell you how she was down to earth, and about her upcoming solo career, but I think I'll let the interview do the talking. There's no video component, its supposed to be audio only. Also, a quick notice, this is my first time ever conducting an interview, so forgive me if my skill level is a bit low.

Thoughts on Adventureland and Record Store Day





I don't have a review in me right now, so I'll just discuss my day. Today was national Record Store Day. It was fantastic, I got a chance to see Lawrence Arms and Dissappears play live shows at Reckless Records, a place in downtown Chicago. Both bands played pretty great shows, and a record store was a fantastic setting. I managed to pick up a few records, another addition to my quest for the White Stripes vinyl discography, Bon Iver's full album, and some Godspeed You! Black Emperor, so my day was quite successful.

Then I saw Adventureland. I loved it, thought it had substance, heart, and characters so interesting that I didn't want the movie to end. However, they advertised this movie all wrong. It wasn't a teen comedy from the apatow vein like all the commercials led you to believe, but more of a mix between garden state and the 80's in general.

So yeah, good weekend so far.
