It’s back. I’m back. Baby got back. It seems as if I’d taken a year of hiatus from consistently posting on here, and it’s time I got myself back on the scene. My music library has grown, and my ear health has dwindled. Greatly. To rest my ears, I’ve taken to listening to softer music for the summer. One of my favorite songs as of late is a very calming one by Sir Sly, an indie pop band out of Los Angeles, California. Indie pop from out west has been taking over my playlist ever so slowly since Foster the People and The Neighbourhood made it to my ear drums.
And even better is the live version…
Hey, look who’s FINALLY posting!
It’s been a while, but The Big Cheese and I both figured it was a fitting time to post. We all know we’re thankful that I’m back, am I right?

On behalf of everyone here at JustWroteABlog and NekkedSnake.wordpress.com, we’d like to ask you to watch this video.
(As well as have a wonderful, Happy Thanksgiving weekend. Safe shopping, fun partying, best wishes.)
Classical music puts me to sleep. It’s relaxing, it’s solid, it’s just what it is. Classic.
Twerking however…………. Twerking. It’s fantastic. Sometimes it can be what we kids today call “ratchet” but other times it can be classy.
I have no words.
Ladies and gentlemen, watch this when you can do it shamelessly. ClASSical performance right here.
In honor of the release of their new EP, I’m going to give you all a heads up on the first song to be released off their upcoming album. This song has been out for a few months now, but damn, it’s still good, and the two (or three, depending on your region) songs that released on the EP titled after the first single aren’t slacking either.
The titular track is the bee’s knees. Yeah. It’s that good to me that I had to use some retro lingo to describe how much I fucking liked it.
Have a listen to this track.
Oh, and enjoy the video, I did. It makes zero sense. I love it when things make no sense.
Seldom heard songs always make me happy. Being as I’ve only been comprehensively browsing the internet for, oh, say, four years of my life, I’m bound to have missed some gems from my favorite bands since they were probably making music way before I could understand what the internet even entailed.
Two Door Cinema Club made its fame through myspace, yeah, remember myspace? Timberlake’s social networking platform. Yeah.
Two Door Cinema Club dropped EPs on that site back when it was relevant, and have yet to rerelease some of the songs. I do believe three of the five songs from their first EP made their debut album, Tourist History, but the one song that I listen to over and over again happens to be Kids, a song that is credited to be on the Tourist History tracklist for the Japanese release.
