Linkery:

Raw footage of Cory Kennedy destryong everything.  If I could skate like anyone he might be my number one pick.  

Fernando Bramsmark aka Darkness for Skate Mental - shreds everything and seems like a fun dude to boot.  

A couple of photo journal entries from some work trips to Miami.  It was way less exciting than it sounds.  Unless it
doesn't sound exciting at all, in which case it was exactly as exciting as it sounds.   The Everglades were great though.

I haven't gone to see anyone live all month, which is a rarity.  But I did forget to post this earlier in the year, so...

Top Nine Favorite Shows of 2015!
Unordered, mostly out of laziness.  

Belle & Sebastian at Echostage - 6/11/2015
I said unordered but this is probably number one - drove to DC for the gig, totally worth it.  

Morrissey at Carolina Theatre - 6/15/2015
Not the best I've ever seen him, but still great.  

The Rolling Stones at Carter Finley Stadium - 7/1/2015
I'm not sure it was worth the price of admission, but they were damn good.  

Destroyer at the Cat's Cradle - 10/8/2015
Possibly the best I've ever seen them.

Bandway / Pipe at the Cat's Cradle - 10/24/2015
Two great local tastes that taste great together.  

Archers of Loaf at the Cats Cradle - 10/17/2015
If the Archers played, the Archers make the list.  It's science.  

Sylvan Esso / Flock of Dimes / Ivan Howard at Carrboro Commons - 4/3/2015
Got free tickets to this on a whim, ended up having a damn good time.  

Ex Hex / Birds of Avalon at Kings - 1/3/2015
Ex Hex are pop perfection both recorded and live.  

Hopscotch Music Festival in downtown Raleigh - 9/10/2015, 9/11/2015 & 9/12/2015 (Day and Night)
It's a festival so I saw a shitload of bands...highlights included Mac McCaughan, Lydia Loveless, Roky Erickson,
Flock of Dimes, Pipe, and Birds of Avalon.

"Any fool who would paint his truck like this would show up at a minister's funeral dressed in feathers."

All-Time Quarterback - Why I Cry (Magnetic Fields cover).  Otherwise known as Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for
Cutie solo.  

Dungen - Panda.  Fellas, I can't understand a goddamn thing you're saying.  
Ta Det Lungt

Fujiya & Miyagi - Artificial Sweeteners.  It's totally shocking this is on local label Yep Roc.  Kraftwerk meets pop.  
Rayleigh Scattering

Pernice Brothers - One Foot In The Grave.  I've probably posted this before...all the Pernice records and songs
kinda sound the same, but it's an awesome kinda same.  
The Weakest Shade of Blue

The Fucking Champs - Dale Bozzio.  There was a time in the mid-to-late nineties when these guys and Trans Am
seemingly played here in the Triangle once a month.  I wasn't mad about it.
Heart to Heart

Total Control - Bloody Glass.  If I could go back and revise my "best of 2014" list, "Typical System" would definitely
make the top five.  Such a great year.  
Flesh War
Safety Net

Yo La Tengo - All Your Secrets.  Some of these are covers, all are great.  From thir most recent outing "Stuff Like
That There."
Butchie's Tune
Somebody's In Love
