Friday I'm in Love

The first 30 seconds of the Cure's "Friday I'm in Love" may be the best opening bars of any song, ever. The second I hear the the synth (the "da-na-na-na-na-na-NA") and the beat comes crashing in I just get in the best mood. It's not even my favorite Cure song (that honor would go to "Picture of You") but the open is just wonderful.

I'm not allowed to embed the video, but here's a link: clicky

BYT Inaugural

For all of those in DC for Inauguration, I highly recommend picking up tickets for Brightest Young Things's Inauguration Classic 2k9 Spectacular at Bohemian Caverns. The line-up is fantastic (comedian Tig Notaro, DC next-big-thing rapper Wale, Team Robespierre, Art of Junk, to name a few) and the party is literally ALL DAY. From 9:30am til the wee hours of the next morning, you can come and go as you please- you can even drop coats or bags off and then come back after street festivities to pick it all back up. It will be the perfect homebase for the day. Tickets are only $20 so act fast! Should be a great time.
