The whole purpose of a cool 120 came around a couple of years ago due to the volumes of mix CD’s I would create for my frequent trips between Philadelphia and DC. And more so because I don’t have an aux input on my car stereo and I refuse to get that Belkin radio shit.
Below are three of my favorite songs from the most recent mix, listen/download to the rest of it here.
The Oldest Mind – Jape
Burial Grounds – Airlines
Moku – Edamame

Well everyone, I think it’s a perfect time to re-introduce my unofficial campaign of being decent human beings. New years start with resolutions, reflections, hopeful ambitions and I’m sure many other things varying on the person. But, I think we can all come together and simultaneously strive for something that’s, in my opinion, easily attainable.
Late last night as I was walking my dog after work, I decided to further the walk after he did his business thinking he needed some extra time. Patiently waiting for the light to change, a slow car approaches me. Blocking my path across the street I look to see what he’s doing and he’s staring right back at me masturbating. Instantly appalled and without thinking I threw the bag of shit I had in my hands at him through his conveniently open window and added some other verbal slurs.
As he sped off, probably surprised at what had just happened, I immediately felt victimized. In a city I’ve grown to adore, I have now been randomly attacked three separate times within the past two months. Random is the key word here and that’s what I have to remember, these creeps were looking for anyone. These sick crimes can easily make you feel bad about yourself, but why should it? Next time this dude is cruising around looking for his next audience member I’m sure he won’t pull up on girls walking their dogs anymore.
Now this is an extreme side of the spectrum, obviously not all people are this demented in the head. I’m sure there are smaller things in all of us that we could improve on, even if it’s just resisting to gossip, showing up ten minutes early for an appointment instead of ten minutes late, unloading the dishwasher, etc. No matter how trivial these things can seem, they can mean the world to others and doesn’t it feel good to just make someone else feel good?
Anyways, let’s be decent because you may find yourself with a bag of shit in your face, literally. Here’s some fabulous Elizabeth & The Catapult.

We first caught Chris Cubeta and The Liars Club a couple of months back during CMJ in Brooklyn and boy were we impressed. Coming off of his third studio album, Chris will be playing a set right in our turf tonight.
Supporting fellow New Yorkers, Elizabeth and The Catapult!, Chris will step on stage at the Tin Angel here in Philadelphia and show off his folk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to see Chris and his crew bring their rugged indie-rock sound to Old City. Listen below to the companion tracks, “I’m Sorry” and “You Should Be Too” off the latest release.
We were lucky enough to speak with Chris briefly…
