Been listening to this album a lot this week

This is “From the Ritz to the Rubble” by the Arctic Monkeys. I was going to post “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor”, but apparently I already posted that, and I never post the same song twice on this blog.

"Last night these two bouncers
And one of em’s alright
The other one’s the scary one
His way or no way, totalitarian
He’s got no time for you
Looking or breathing
How he don’t want you to

So step out of the queue
He makes examples of you
And there’s naught you can say
Behind they go through to the bit where you pay
And you realise then that it’s finally the time
To walk back past ten thousand eyes in the line
And you can swap jumpers and make another move
Instilled in your brain you’ve got something to prove
To all the smirking faces and the boys in black
Why can’t they be pleasant?
Why can’t they have a laugh?
He’s got his hand in your chest
He wants to give you a duff
Well secretly I think they want it all to kick off
They want, arms flying everywhere and
Bottles as well it’s just
Something to talk about
A story to tell, yeah”

Audiosurf is a pretty fricken awesome game. I thought it was awesome last year when a friend of mine showed me it, but I didn’t think it was awesome enough to buy. However, I bought it yesterday because it was on sale on Steam for only $1.49 - a deal I couldn’t pass up. So I’ve been entertained with that for quite a few hours now. Hopefully I can still concentrate on school when I go back to college in the fall.

If you aren’t familiar with this game, basically you follow this track collecting colored blocks to build combos and avoid gray blocks. The cool thing though is the track and blocks move along with the music… with blocks appearing on the beat, more frequently with the “intensity” of the song, and your speed increases or decreases with the tempo.

The even-cooler-thing is you can select ANY song you want from your personal music library, and it will build a track for that song. Just… so cool.

"I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor" by the Arctic Monkeys

I can’t listen to Arctic Monkeys and be in a bad mood at the same time, they are just so upbeat and fun sounding. And so British.
