Beach. Corona. Lime. Bliss.

Yes, it’s middle of summer but that didn’t sway my judgement on the beautifully designed Corona Beach website. Interactive websites are a dime a dozen but Big Spaceship really hit the ball out of the park with this one. It’s simple, easy to navigate and does it ever do the trick. Talk about relaxing…

It’s a quiet, keep your mouth filled with booze so you can shut up and listen to This American Life party.  Get your Ira Glass on 6-9pm Sunday, September 7th @ The Office (3936 30th St. San Diego).

I like your nurse’s uniform, guy.

Your new favorite band: The Traditionist

Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes). Two of the greatest songwriters of my generation.  Now, I’m happy to introduce Joey Barro (The Traditionist) to that list.  The California storyteller used to front the folk-rock outfit, The Antiques but now has his full attention on your soon-to-be-new-favorite-band, The Traditionist.  The songs are raw, simple, organic, bouncy – weaving with so much heartfelt emotion, they’re best suited for late nights sprawled out on the living room floor with headphones on as loud as they go. This is the kind of stuff we’ll be talking about for years and something tells me The Traditionist is only scratching the surface of his true potential.
