A Great Dinner Conversation (In Review)

*photo credit: unknown/date: unknown, but definitely taken sometime prior to 93 days ago.

Here are a few of the topics that Dustin, Erin, Katie and I touched upon at dinner last night while we were held captive in their home by a ghost who broke the archaic, skeleton-key activated door and used his invisible hands to force feed us copious amounts of bread pudding.

COACHELLA whereyoucanfindme FRIDAY

Dancing my face off…
The Presets – “My People”

Buraka Som Sistema – “Sound of Kuduro”

So I can say I’ve seen him…
Paul McCartney “A Day in the Life” (Live at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool 2008)

To cry just a little bit…
Leonard Cohen – “Chelsea Hotel”

To feel both worldly and dumb…
Beirut – “Elephant Gun”

To hear this song…
Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band - “Cape Canaveral”

To see if they’re any better live than the rest of the bands they sound like…
White Lies – “Death”
(OK. Would’ve liked to have shown the video here, but the embedding function’s been disabled on youtube so thieving heathens like me will be discouraged from helping promote the band apparently. And so I say “good luck to you, sirs.”)

To really listen…
M. Ward “Hold Time”

With hopes they’re fun…
Los Campasinos – “You! Me! Dancing!”

Because Ian Curtis is dead, Primal Scream isn’t on the bill and The Jesus and Mary Chain are still in some form of limbo.
A Place to Bury Strangers – “To Fix The Gash In Your Head”
