Motherfish #??- Summer and Things Like That

Catching Up is Fun!

So I've been a little MIA, I realize that. Allow me to explain myself. This summer I opted to not go home and have a vacation, but to rather stay on campus working a full time position. It's a lot of fun, but the 40+ hour week took a little getting used to. That, and since I'm on campus I decided to take a class, get my math requirement out of the way. Sounds like a good plan, no? Well, when I have class twice a week from 7-10pm, I'm not quite as enthusiastic. I fucking hate it, to be perfectly honest. My professor is a cool guy, and the work is pretty easy, but DAMN it's boring as SHIT. I honestly feel no emotions outside of unbridled fury while sitting in that room. It's hot, stuffy, the desks are tiny, and there are a few people in that class who can honestly make me question the validity of my own life. Fun times. I guess where this is going is that the summer has been hectic and full of bizarre experiences (more on those at a later date).

But I still listen to music!

That's right! Despite my busy schedule, I still manage to throw on the hottest tunes around while I work. That's great for me. But since I haven't been writing any reviews, what does that mean for you? NOTHING! YOUR LIVES ALL SUCK! While mine is awesome and filled with fresh jams. I kid, I kid. I've been compiling a list of the summer's best new releases, as well as a few rising stars and old favorites. In the beginning of September, you can expect the Motherfish Best of Summer 2009 Plus Montreal Extravaganza! It will be a massive update containing reviews, anecdotes, pictures, and juicy steaks. I know you like steak!

Also, be sure to check out, a great up-and-coming magazine full of witty commentary, creative fiction, wonderful art, and of course music music music! Jagazine will also be running a review by Yours Truly in their August edition. Pick one up in you live in New Jersey at Vintage Vinyl in Fords or The Raconteur Bookstore in Metuchen; though I recommend you subscribe and get them delivered to you! But even if you hate me, still check them out, they're good people.


Hope you enjoyed my little update. Keep coming around, there may be some more goodies before the end of the summer. Until then, keep breathing.
