The worst thing in today’s world has to be slow internet. Time Warner is the devil and say they fixed it…only to have it be going at a snail’s speed the next day. So when I’m sitting around at night wanting to get shit done, I can’t. Okay, this has only been the case once this week – but it was still annoying to deal with. I couldn’t even get into an email to check out videos for GML last night so had to do it this morning.

Other than suffering from a major first world problem, this week was pretty great. My mom came up and I got to show her and my step dad Hollywood. He was more into in than she was. All she cared about was that we ate at the BBQ place at the Farmer’s Market. She had it once a few years ago when she came up for The Price is Right and has been talking about it ever since. My family is a gang of fat kids.

This has to be short and sweet since I don’t know when the internet will decide to stop trying. But as far as music goes, that Ryan Schmidt interview was something people loved this week. Next week will be New Found Glory centric as I’m seeing them on Friday at The Glasshouse. Also, there’s going to be some American Spirit and Taylor Buono…Stay tuned and check out this week’s video picks!

For me I only have one thing I’m heading to in March and it’s not even in LA, but Pomona. If I could though I’d wanna pretend it’s 1999 and see Korn and Limp Bizkit at that Epicenter Festival going on in Inglewood. Alas, those tickets aren’t cheap enough on Goldstar yet…So from a gang of brothers from South Africa to a group of guys that made the ‘90s romantic, here are 10 shows to check out in LA this month.

In the last year this song has become one of my favorites. For the first time in well, since it came out like 34546 years ago…I actually listened to the words and fell in love. Now I have to keep this short and sweet because my mom’s coming up to visit today and I have to still get dressed, wait for the roofer to fix that dreaded hole in the kitchen and write some other shit before she gets here.
