Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary

David Sedaris, also known as Amy Sedaris's brother, compiled some short stories so he could say he has written yet another one. This one says a lot about the demographic of this author - most likely, this book is read just to fulfill a certain annual quota - much like the reason it was written. Further, if you have something personal against written words, this book might be just what you need; I promise that when you finish you won't even feel like you've read a book at all. If you already have read it, I assume that you suffer from some sort of attention deficit or lack general direction in life, much like myself. But golly, is it fun to read...

Squirrel seeks chipmunk is basically what The Simpsons used to be before they started sucking. This book even comes with fine illustrations by Ian Falconer, to distract you from the letters and sentences. Give it a go, Joe!

Martin Solveig acing a smash

If there is one thing the Frenchies know, it is how to make good house music. Martin Solveig manages to do so as well, despite his questionable Scandinavian heritage. Not only is a portion of beats served, but also an infusion of dubstep. Be sure to listen to the über hit Hello and the stupid video, also Ready 2 Go with a similarly genious vid. Check it, peepz.

Spelunking with the Cave Singers, but without wiccas

Kicks ass album by the Cave Singers "No witch", may be a joker to follow in the future. No song like the other on this 12 track album with Seattle boy Pete Quirk on vocals. Be sure to check out "Outer Realms" and "Haller Lake" - not to mention the song from their first album "Invitation Song", called "Dancing on our graves" - swinging like nothing else!

Dead Weather swimming in a sea of cowards

The Dead Weather - Sea of CowardsÜber-group Dead Weather consists of Jack White from White Stripes, Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age and Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs and The Greenhorns. The album "Sea of Cowards" provides deep base and strange guitars, and it works. Especially with Jacks voice being more high pitch than that of Alison. Such a good combo. Try out "The Difference Between Us"

Foster the people with torches?

"Torches" is the album from another LA band - Foster the People, in competition with Broken Bells I guess? Some good tunes, such as "Pumped up kicks" that also exists in raaaad Dubstep version right here. Have a go, apparently the alternative scene has still some imagination to offer. Not bad.
