edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros

Please check out the band Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, my latest music obsession. I don’t even know how to describe them aside from amazing. Their full album, called “Up From Below” is on iTunes for only $7.99 right now (click HERE to download), and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

My brother seems to think their music videos are a little… odd and hippie-ish, but I think it goes along with their music, so watch it if you like hippies, but you might avoid it if you don’t. I think his description was, “This kind of reminds me of that scene from Into the Wild.”, which is an awesome movie too, you know if you’re interested in some off-beat hippie culture and the life story of a guy who lives in the wild. So yeah, he bought the album. My brother has great taste in life.

Anyway, back to my point- check out this band. My two favorites are “Home” and “40 Day Dream“, and from what I heard they were great live at Coachella. They will be playing at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and are touring all around America- all their dates are on their Myspace. Of course, they’re not coming to Florida… but maybe they’ll read this and change their mind? Please?

Wine Purses & Lollapalooza Lineups

RIP Thomas Angove, the inventor of boxed wine.

If you enjoy a good boxed wine, you can carry the bags around in an even handier way– with a wine purse. I thought this was an April Fool’s Joke, but it turns out it’s real.

Buy this fantastic invention HERE! My birthday isn’t too far away if you want to buy me something hilarious?

Additionally, the Lollapalooza lineup was just announced at the Chicago Tribune here, and I almost cried because it looks so amazing- the first day alone has Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, Phoenix, Hot Chip, The National, Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors, Matt & Kim, Wolfmother, The New Pornagraphers, The Black Keys, Yeasayers, and Spoon among others.. So yes, in my book this line up does trump Coachella. The festival is in August in Chicago, so go check it out- tickets are $215 for the three days of shows for the next three days on the Lollapalooza website (and they are selling out fast).
