I recently picked up Real Estate’s record on Mexican Summer Records and have started to get into them. I was initially skeptical because of the easy confusion with one of my favorite bands that has a similar name that begins with Sunny Day. Anyways, I’ve come to appreciate Real Estate and forgive them for their encroachment on SDRE’s name. Recently they settled down with Daytrotter and recorded a session that is not to be missed. Be sure to check it out.

Welcome to FOH, where it goes down a lot more than it doesn’t…
More unnecessary anger from the pulpit, but if you consider the fact that I shouldn’t even need to be up here speaking whatsoever maybe everybody else could cut me some slack.
I’ve been beyond organized my whole life. Even during the darkest periods of my life, I’ve still always managed to keep everything I have in order. But I don’t expect a medal for it because it isn’t like it’s difficult to keep your shit together.
I’ve been watching a lot of A & E lately and they have a show which most of you have probably already seen called Hoarders where these sick individuals store ungodly amounts of shit in their living space and then claim that it’s an addiction. Then to make matters worse, they actually bring in someone whose title is a – wait for it – “personal organizer” to help them get their “life” back. It’s hard to feel sorry for the participants of this show, so to me it’s a comedy and I laugh my ass off at it weekly.
