EIGHT

It's distressing that my best friend actually had to point this news out to me, but hey, I've been busy today...

BeckEye is a happy, happy girl. It's just been announced that the long-awaited (by me, especially) new Pearl Jam record is set for release on May 2. And on March 8 (that's only six more days!) the first single, "World Wide Suicide" will be made available to radio stations that will play it once and then go back to playing "Alive" and "Even Flow" every once in a while in between blocks of Puddle of Hoobastaind nonsense. Luckily, the track can also be downloaded for free on Pearl Jam's official website during the first two days of its release. Oh, the people at work are gonna love me next week once I get that baby on my iTunes. I'm not worried that I won't like it. I mean, it's possible. They have a few songs I don't like. But the odds are in their favor. I'm sure I'll like it. If I don't, I'll let you all know. I'll let you all know if I love it too...just much more vociferously.

After that....another tour! Yay!! For those of you who remember my last concert fiasco, this time I will be using will call or stapling the tickets to my ass, ala Steve-O.

I am rolling on the floor with your Steve-O comment. PLEASE don't do that ! Ouch.

Congrats on one of "your" bands coming out with something new, I know that feeling!

First and foremost, thank you, thank you, thank you for being one of the few remaining folks I know who still calls it a "record." Sometimes I use "album" and people look at me like I'm 350 years old. "Record" is less freakish, but I'm still so far in the minority that some giggle at that.

Oh, and YAY PEARL JAM!

I have to note on the use of "record" too, as I am also someone who uses "album". I'm glad to see them coming out with something new. They're pretty incredible live.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
