Music Monday: Death Cab For Cutie

Way WAY in the back!

Howdy, all!  Now, normally I would use Music Mondays to bring you an artist that is new(er), or at least new to me, but today I’m taking a different track.  I saw Death Cab live on Saturday, and it was the balls.  So, I’m just gonna go ahead and talk about them.  ‘Cause I can.  Yay! Go me.

So, my friend Trevor and I braved the deluge we got here in Orlando on Saturday to catch their show at House of Blues.  This tour is to promote their newest album, Codes and Keys.  That album, which came out in May, is way different from anything I’ve heard from them before.  It’s very. . . happy.  I’m thinking that marriage agrees with lead singer Ben Gibbard (he’s hitched to super cutie Zooey Deschanel).  I’m still trying to gather my thoughts about it.  I like Codes for the most part, though.  Especially the lead single, “You Are A Tourist.” The video is funky and cute:

Luckily for me, I didn’t have to think to hard at the show.  They started off with a rocking 9-minute jam version of one of my favorites, “I Will Possess Your Heart” off their album Narrow Stairs.   They even played “Photobooth” off The Forbidden Love EP.  I think this might have been the first song of theirs I ever heard.  Hearing it live took me waaaay back.

That was probably the best thing about this show- remembering where I was when I heard those songs, or who I dedicated them to in my mind back then.  That and they sounded so great live.  Gifted musicians and well crafted songs are always a good time!

Death Cab for Cutie is on tour now- catch them if they’re in your town.  Click here for tour schedule.  And check out Codes and Keys.  Let me know what you think! Have a fantastic day.  Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

A Look At April Cover Stars

So, I had such a good time putting together the last magazine cover post, I thought I’d give it another go for spring!  This is my favorite time for covers because there’s so much color and skin after the dark winter months.  Here’s a gander at some of my favorites -and some that made me say, “What?!  WHY?!”

Zooey Deschanel on Lucky:

I love this!  Zooey Deschanel is, like, the perfect indie ingenue here (and everywhere), and I’m living for her dress.  I wish I could pull off cutie-pie looks like this.

Kate Winslet on UK Vogue:

She is channeling Brigitte Nielsen with that platinum cropped ‘do.  The newly single mom looks better than ever.

Gucci Mane on The Source:

I saw this at the store and was like, “Is that an ice cream cone on his face?”  I’m still not sure (I found out the other day that I need glasses).  Amazing!

Britney Spears and Madonna on Out:

Rumor has it that the folks over at Out Magazine didn’t trust Brit Brit to sell enough magazines, so they brought out The Queen to ensure a hot issue.  I’m not sure that’s true, but I’m happy that we get these two ferosh covers.  I forgot how beautiful young Madonna was.  Le Sigh.

Rihanna on Vogue:

Art History 101:  I’m not a fan of RiRi’s “Bobo the Clown” orange locks, but this photo is gorge McGeorge.  Anyone else seeing Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” up in here?  Get that woman a big ass seashell, STAT.

Edward Cull- er, I mean Robert Pattinson on Vanity Fair:


Why, Rob, why?  Ugh.  Is that a belt in your jeans?  What are you, 50?!  Why are your fingernails so long?  Don’t tell me it’s for the guitar.  They make picks for that.  And isn’t your movie, Water for Elephants, about an . . . elephant?  Wtf’s up with the ‘gator?  An elephant is probably too literal.  Whatever.  I’ll just look into your eyes and block it all out. . .

Join me, won’t you, in snagging some of these bad boys before they leave newsstands?  We can discuss what in the world is on Gucci Mane’s face.  Hope you’re all having a great “Hump Day!”  xx
