Posted by gregor on Monday, December 22nd, 2014

pug

man, i cannot wait for this, this being joe pug’s new record windfall which is due out on march 10. im as excited about this as i am about the new american aquarium… the great despiser, his last record, was one of my favorite records from 2012? actually i think burn.flicker.die just beat out the great despiser that year. i cannot recommend his entire catalogue enough…

still one of my favorite videos on the youtubes!

captains dead’s favorite videos of 2014

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

admittedly, i watch a lot of videos. i spend most of my work days watching whatever on youtube. i fluctuate between tech reviews and music related vids. when i say i spend a lot of time on youtube, i am not fucking around. i would gather at least 3-5 hours of my day are spent on said site. its pretty sad actually… i should be spending that time doing other shit, but alas, that is not the case.

i should mention that caleb’s “trade all the lights” is by far my favorite of the year. its an absolute gorgeous ode to new orleans, a city i both love and i hate. a sentiment i am sure most inhabitants share, but i may be wrong. either way, it kills me every time i watch it. although, hiss golden messenger’s “mahogany dread” is just as lovely and as a dude with a family, it tears at my old man heart strings. then there are the rest, all of which i dig or really dig for various reasons.
