The next 48 hours in America will be full of perfunctory expressions of gratitude ranging in sincerity from the teary-eyed and inebriated uncle, to the backhanded dissembling of the angry aunt, to Joe Buck and Fox’s Salute to Troops. Less discussed is the idea that being levitra vs viagra vs cialis cost thankful for things takes valuable time. Plus, there are so many things to be angry, anxious, or indignant about – some waranted (f*ck congress) and some not (we’re all gonna die).read more
Check, check. This thing still on? WHAT!?!?! IT IS!?!?! Well then I guess I’ll keep going.
We’ve been hibernating for a minute here at Bars & Pickups, but we’re (mostly) ready to start moving again. For starters, here’s an abbrieviated look at what I’ve been listening to this summer:read more
This site has been pretty sleepy through the first quarter of the year, but all that’s about to change. Here’s what caught my ear thus far in 2015.
Courtney Barnett – Depreston
Ms. Barnett first got my attention last year with the brilliant “Avant Gardener”. I was kinda dismissive of it when I initially wrote about it last May, which seems especially odd considering I really haven’t stopped listening to it sinxe.

I’m sure you’ve been rapid-fire refreshing your browser window for the last few weeks, waiting for us to follow up our wildly successful “Top 100 songs of 2013“, only to be disappointed as the calendar creeped toward, and then passed the 2015 mark. Surely, the chance was over. No one would be so audacious as to drop a year end list 21 days into the new year?read more
Here’s a nice, quiet little DJ mix to kick off your Saturday night and upset your local neighbors who hates the term “twerk”. I hope you enjoy Selena Gomez, Montell Jordan, and the Macarena.
In 2003 I graduated high school and to commemorate the occasion New Jersey rockers The Wrens released their transcendent album The Meadowlands. Today the band is probably best known for an inability to release a proper follow-up to their classic record. The next The Wrens album has basically become the indie rock equivalent of Chinese Democracy. Himanshu Suri, better known as Das Racist founder Heems, can’t wait to hear that shit either.read more
