Ugggh, do not want long work days. It's supposed to be all super-nice this weekend, and I've got to work right through it.

Banda De Boca -- Samba da Bahia
This is an incredibly cute song from Brazil. :3 It's really light and happy, without being exactly "upbeat." IDK, Brazil has a lot of incredible music. Elise received a CD of Brazilian pop in a swap once, and I've been fairly hooked since. Michiko to Hatchin didn't help. Then I went a big world music downloading spree and only, like, Brazil and Romania have remained in my iTunes. Romania's mostly because they're funny.

Machinarium OST -- Mr. Handagote
I don't think I can pimp this game enough. It's beautiful on every level, and the soundtrack is a major element of that. Even tracks that are intended as ambient noise have a fabulous depth and maintain this very mechanical sound with leaving behind an organic sense. IF THAT MADE ANY SENSE. THIS MY FAVORITE FROM TRACK OF SOUND, DERP.

Assassin's Creed II OST -- Ezio's Family
I wonder sometimes if "GOOD SOUNDTRACK" is all that I need to convince me that something is the best thing ever. I mean, like, .hack//Roots? I still suspect that I love it/Ovan based on "Dwindled Bible" being the best song ever composed ever. Similarly, I suspect that the soundtrack to AC2 paired with Ezio's Italian sexiness is a major part of my current obsession with it. This theme is a major part of my obsession with the soundtrack, at least.

So, like, everything from this collection sounds like it'd play in a gay club. It's also all in English, which is pretty baffling. IDK who made the collection, but we usually pretend that ALL Romania music is like this.

T.M. Revolution -- LIAR'S SMILE (Breaking The Code I-Mix)

MY CHILDHOOD. WELCOME TO IT. Well, not "child" so much, more late middle school/early highschool age? ANYWAY. I used to sit at the computer playing a Taco Bell game listening to it. Like, a lot.

(On a somewhat different note, I don't know why everything credits the game with being released in 2000? I know I was playing it before I was in HS. There was a break-out style game at the same time that I can't find any mention of. I love when you can tell that all information about something on the internet is just copied from some original source somewhere. Also, the Enchirito has a wikipedia entry. BRB, going to Taco Bell for lunch now.)

Happy Birthday

I've been recording a secret side project album with my long term co
writer and collaborator Robert Conley over the past 2 years. It was
finished and mixed in December last year and just last week the album
was mastered.

It's a band we call 'We Are Smug'. Robert and I share lead vocal and
songwriting duties on everything, and up until this second, we haven't
spoken a word of it to anyone outside of our circle of friends.

But today, on my birthday, we've decided it's release day and if you
visit http://www.wearesmug.com/ you can download it for free.

This is not the direction of my next album, nor is 'free' the new
price for my music. This is just something I am doing because I can.

While you're digesting this, I'm hard at work on songs for a brand new
studio album for next year. It's a big 'fuck off' pop record. POP
with a capital P if you will. You better have high expectations.

In the meantime, enjoy being Smug.
And Happy Birthday.
