I think I’m going to start a Meetup group for people who aren’t on facebook.

We’ll get together and watch slideshows of member’s family and vacation photos and what they ate for lunch, take turns sharing how much we hate Mondays, our boss, our commute, and how badly we need coffee, and for fun toss in our feelings about the current weather, and then watch as two members descend into a spat on global warming, gun control or obamacare. All this while our parents and extended family are watching us via skype. It will be the same experience while being able to retain our “not on facebook” bragging rights.

the raveonettes - killer in the streets (acoustic)

(source: the quietus)

This would be my favorite thus far off today’s surprise album release. And as is often the case with the Raveonettes, the acoustic version rivals if not outright beats the noisy original.

I’m running out of Cool Aunt things to do when my (now 15 y.o.) niece does the annual summer visit, but I think I did ok this round.

Sat night: Snowpiercer

Sunday: Revere Beach Sand Sculptures. Also a bit of Newbury St. shopping

Sunday night: all ages Anti-Flag/ Screaming Females show. Never would have gone to Anti-Flag on my own but they ended up being perfect for her— loud, fun, nice social justice messaging, and while on the periphery of the moshing she got knocked on her butt and covered with my beer, so of course she was in heaven.

Psychedelic Furs, “House.”

This was another of those “I’m late to the party; no one’s listening to them anymore,” albums. Still good stuff. (Other albums in that category: Seven & the Ragged Tiger, Frank, All Shook Down, On Every Street.)

Also late to the party and yes this is good, but their sound is so squarely 80s for me that it’s difficult to listen without a surge of melancholy nostalgia, not so much for an 80s I experienced as for an 80s that back then always felt out of reach.
