dreamy dreamerton

apparently i'm the only one of our six writers that is still alive so i'm racking my brain trying to come up with articles...

so here's a band that i just discovered, even though they've been around all year. the band is coconut records and yes, jason schwartzman from films like rushmore, i ♥ huckabees, darjeeling limited and shopgirl is the lead singer. and yes, he's as talented at music as he is at acting (and still SO dreamy).

i have to stop right here and say that i usually hate when hollywood interferes with music and it usually ends up as bad as you'd expect (see 30 seconds to mars, see dogstar). but with an avant-garde artist like schwartzman, we've learned to expect quality and nighttiming certainly delivers. each song off nighttiming is it's own piece of work and each one could and likely will be featured in an indie movie sometime in the next few years. the album still works as a whole, even though each song is starkly different from the others.

so there you go: coconut records.

there will be a funeral for the other four writers of this blog as i'm sure they're dead. and when they give me grief for writing this, just go back and look at our posts and you'll soon realize that they have no ground to stand on. whenever we get the funeral scheduled, i'll surely let you know. we'll do a benefit concert as well to help pay for the funeral expenses too.

Keep the dream alive, man. The ship might be sinking, but at least you're standing strong.

I can't even tell you how dreamy Schwarzman is, especially in his new movie The Darjeeling Limited. Oh, I'm sorry, was this blog about music? I think we should make it a Schwarzman shrine instead. I'd write an entry every day. How can you say no to that, Chad?

haha yes coconut records is amazing! when i ordered the cd it came with a Polaroid that he took himself.

On a side note...
I personally think that Robert Carmine (Jason's brother) is more dreamy than him to.

That "West Coast" song is one of the catchiest jams of 07.

And...Chad, one of these days I'll have to tell you my Jason Schwartzman story. Its a GOOD one.
