La Vida Es Un Mus 2013

First time I listened to Hoax, I wasn’t crazy about them, I just didn’t care. I went and saw them anyways and my heart stopped. “Jesse from Hoax” (ask for it from your preferred stylist) did his usual schtick, tearing up his face, via box fan. The whole band spent themselves completely, I was surprised anything was left after.
Maybe it I’d never seen them I wouldn’t like this 7”, but I did, so I love it, and Heather Benjamin’s (Sad Sex) illustrations are perfect for it.
I went hunting for those photos of Ms. Anne Thropy playing Ethical Addictions, but I settled for this.
“We are stoked to be alive! We got tons of stuff in the works, including shows, fixing our van, and general brotherly love amongst friends! Our van is almost ready for action, and when it is, you will know, because we’ll take it everywhere! Our summer tour is almost completely booked, and we will be going to Montreal and then coming home through the States! Exciting stuff! Before then, we are playing a couple shows in our local ‘hood, and are talking with our buds Blue Mouse Theatre about doing a couple shows in Seattle and Portland, so we’ll see what comes of that. Also, make sure you search for us on MySpace, and add us to your account! Maybe we can beat out Underoath for top band on MySpace! But hey, I just downloaded the new Beastie Boys album, and things are mad illin’ in hurr.”
In 2004 MTV Europe started a series called This is Our Music. After the first season it relocated to Swedish television and Andres Lokko and Dan Lepp followed Dan Treacy around for an episode.
As you get deeper into the 20 minutes you realize they’re not going to talk much more about the Television Personalities. It’s almost unbelievable this was allowed to air.
A brilliant American financier and his exotic wife build a lavish mansion in the jungles of Costa Rica, set up a wildlife preserve, and appear to slowly, steadily lose their minds. A spiral of handguns, angry locals, armed guards, uncut diamonds, abduction plots, and a bedroom blazing with 550 Tiffany lamps ends with a body and a compelling mystery: Did John Felix Bender die by his own hand? Or did Ann Bender kill him to escape their crumbling dream?
Ned Zeman (never heard of him) does a good job of covering a pretty insane story. Definitely worth reading all the way through.
