I can remember when these guys hit the mainstream when I was in college.  I remember for the simple reason that my neighbor in the dorm was blasting their fuckin’ CD day and night at full volume.  In a way, that soured me towards the group, who I looked at as a flash in the pan punk group who wanted to be Green Day but sang about stupid high school shit like breaking up with their stoner girlfriend and the like.

So I guess I’m surprized that they’ve endured as a group.  I know they briefly broke up for a while and went on to do Boxcar Racer, which was a pretty cool little side project.  But their latest album has made me a fan.  For some reason, the songs on this new release of theirs "Feeling This" are really striking a chord with me.  The songs seem a little bit somber, more grown up, and musically more advanced than anything they’d done previously.  It’s funny because the songs are really very simple for the most part, but in a way that simplicity makes them more sophisticated (probably because any artist knows that to create something simple AND beautiful is the hardest thing to accomplish).

Admittadely, I’m no music critic.  But I do know what I like.  And these guys, I like.

    If you try to create your own torrent then a instructions on the way to use
    torrents and how to create torrents will be in the torrent program you have
    installed on your own computer. There are a lot of people that discuss using torrent to transfer data to
    a large number of people at once. And while you cannot
    alter the past, we have the power to switch our attitude over it, hence the way it ultimately
    affects us.

  15. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Thanks!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
