So this marks our last week in Washington. We've been packing up, getting ready for a move to my parents for three weeks (to finish out our commitments at work) and then we're driving to Houston. I've been applying for jobs like crazy and it seems a lot of jobs are out there, especially in Austin...

I've been working on packing and getting stuff around the place done. Been jamming out to some old tracks and forgot about this gem: MGMT - Electric Feel (Justice Remix)

OK, I thought I was up to date on this stuff, I guess not. I've see links to Soundcloud before and never paid much attention to it. I normally use Hype Machine to find and search for music. Well, aside from all the morons who like Kid Cudi and Kanye West, Hype Machine does it's job...

So I was looking at my logs of how people "discover" my blog and I had an odd relevation. It seemed a lot of people were coming to the site from yahoo image searches. Which is very odd, considering this is a MUSIC blog and there aren't that many images on the site...

It has been hot here in Washington. I'm moving to Houston in May and so I've been watching the weather down there. And three days in a row it's been hotter here, then in Houston. We hit a record on at least one of the days, for the hottest it's ever been on that day since recorded history. To make things more fun, aside from 90 degree heat in April, is our condo has not switched over to AC...

Just a quick note for all of you out there that didn't know it's April Fool's day! Google is now known as "Topeka", check out why here Tags: ,

Since I'm not completely oblivious to sports, although music is more my thing, I had a discussion with a co-worker (Matt Tevelow) who seems to be one of the many resident sport-nerds at work (Greyson is another, however everything must be tied to baseball for him to express interest), and we were discussing how the NCAA ranks teams...

3-27-10 Part Two

var dc_AdLinkColor = 'blue' ; var dc_PublisherID = 136269 ; Got a fun email from a nice girl named Lucia promoting the band "We Are Like the Spider". I listened to a few of the tracks and I have to say my favorite is "Lightning Garden"...

Quick list of tracks to get you moving Saturday! (A few of the tracks have french chicks in them, thus the photo [i.e. Soko and Yelle]) The Klaxons are incredible. This song is incredible. It has our first weird french chick, Soko...

Ok, so I'm going to post and write about Crystal Castles today. I don't think they get enough recognition. Whenever I hear their tracks I'm dancing, singing and throwing my arms in the air like a blacklady at pentecostal church...

Is anyone else really tired of Kid Cudi? I've posted this before, but it seems he's had his five minutes, and now he's just shitting all over everyone's ear with all of this new stuff. Some of the remixes out there are even worse...

A real quick post about an artist I had never heard about, Aloe Blacc. I haven't heard such an incredible and original track since Gnarls Barkley was an unknown. I remember going to buy Gnarls Barkley's "St...

I guess being an econ major I should understand the work/leisure trade off. I think I have a very high leisure requirement, or at least a very high requisite in monetary terms to trade my leisure for work. Although, during the snow storm(s) that hit in February (now known as Snow-mageddon and Snow-over Kill), I found myself wanting to get to work...

So I've kept my promise. I'm posting again! Apparently the Olympics will continue forever! However, Apolo Ohno seems to be at an end with last I saw eight medals for his Olympic career. Not to bad and I've got to say I sure like him a whole hell of a lot more than Michael Phelps...

Has anyone else been completely absorbed into the Winter Olympics? I've always loved the winter olympics, where summer sports lose my interest past the opening ceremony, the complete opposite has been true this year...

2/10/10 – “Snow-ver Kill”

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 by DowntroddenInDC

If 26 inches of snow wasn't enough for Washington on Saturday, and three consecutive days of work closings, we now have an "official" blizzard in DC. Predictors are calling for up to and perhaps exceeding 15 inches of snow, with winds sustaining 30mph and gusts up to 50mph...

I guess Tai-Shan got the hell out of D.C. just in time! With 25+ inches of snow on the ground now and forecasts of another storm dropping 8-10+ more tomorrow, China is looking pretty good! Here's a mashup by White Panda to tie that together a bit more!

Lady Sovereign - I Got You Dancing (Medasyn Dub Remix) Man, oh, man, what a busy few days. It just seems like I can never get everything done in a single day...
