Song of the Week: Nightmare Of You – “My Name is Trouble”


[Editor's Note]: Clearly songs are not going up everyday so the previous title of "Song of the Day" was an obvious ploy for you to come back everyday looking for a new song. This did not work as I had hoped so it is time to change the title to reflect the actual posting frequency of songs. I introduce, the new and more aptly named, "Song of the Week"! A song coming every Sunday. Now enjoy the first "Song of the Week" from Bryan James.

If you like Jared Leto doppelgangers or you like The Cure but don't think they're snarky enough, Nightmare Of You is for you. Brandon Reilly has a knack for composition, leading to some awesomely arranged songs. They've been around for almost a decade now and have never really found a foothold in the larger music scene.

This band is also great for those who are looking for some obscure but easily-palatable bands with which to annoy their friends. Enjoy!

New on Netflix Instant Streaming: July 2013, Part 2


Here are a few more new Netflix Instant Streaming gems that were added in July 2013.

Did you see the first New on Netflix Instant Streaming: July 2013?

can't hardly wait dvd cover new on netflix high school movie

Can't Hardly Wait (1998)

Director: Harry Elfont, Deborah Kaplan
Writer: Harry Elfont, Deborah Kaplan
Starring: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ethan Embry, Charlie Korsmo, Lauren Ambrose, Seth Green
Genre: Comedy, High School, Romance
PG-13

Why You Should Watch It: I'm not entirely sure how old I was when I first saw this movie but it was somewhere between 12 and 15. Closer to 12 would make more sense but it actually doesn't matter. Can't Hardly Wait paved way for all of the great High School Comedies we know today, like American Pie and American Pie 2. Those were the only two, though.

Seriously though, it's a decent PG-13 High School movie that will give you a few laughs. If you're a younger teen, you'll for sure enjoy it and if you're any older you'll see why you would have liked it at that age too. Watch if you're looking for a light-hearted, easy to go down, fun flick.

Why You Should Watch It: I WAS A DEPRIVED CHILD AND NEVER SAW THIS DISNEY MASTERPIECE AS A CHILD. There, I said it and in all CAPS too. I will be watching it sooner or later and will update then. Or if you'd like to add your thoughts on why people should watch Mulan, let me know! Twitter or email at 20SomethingAwesome gmail com.

Song of the Day: Portugal. The Man – “Evil Friends”


Portugal. The Man recently came out with their seventh studio album, Evil Friends. Despite my love of a couple of their albums, I haven't yet fully listened to Evil Friends. I plan to soon though, and you should also do the same because of the half listen I gave it was classic Portugal. The Man.

"Evil Friends", the album titled song has a pretty great video that is shot all in night vision. The snowy-ness, clothes, and hatchets remind me of my days living in the U.P. of Michigan (also some weekends I spent in northern Wisconsin). So if you are from there, you might enjoy it even more. Song is decent and picks up a bit into it. Give it a listen, WOULD YA ALREADY?!

Song of the Day: The Appleseed Cast – “Mile Marker”


Editors Note: Today's SotD comes to you from @NAUGHTicalLife.

It sucks that the word 'emo' gets thrown around so loosely these days. I can't describe the majestic brilliance of bands like The Appleseed Cast without using the aforementioned word as misnomer to what it means today. 'Emo' was a sort-of-backwards cultural movement that produced, among tight pants and averted gazes, some of the best underappreciated music today.

What 'emo' bands/songs did you like as a teenager that still hold up today?

Song of the Day: Pixies – “Debaser”


This song needs no introduction. If you think it does that means you probably haven't listened to it so just stop reading this nonsense and listen to the song. "Debaser" comes off Doolittle, a little late 80's alternative rock album that could. As you can see on its Wikipedia page, it is HIGHLY regarded.
