It’s been a way awesome week, guys.
Ok, ok. Not really. I’ve had, like, a three day headache. It’s not awesome. And, let me tell you…pain makes a person not want to be creative.

In other music news:
My most recent review at PopWreckoning: It’s all about the Cave Singer’s new album, Welcome Joy. I hope you, ahem, enjoy.
And, take a look at the Warhols’ most recent video for “Then I Dreamt of yes.” Pretty, and creepy – a great combo indeed.
