A Playlist for Stevie’s Postcard Project

So my little buddy Stevie is embarking a pretty big journey tomorrow and I’m trying to help him calm his nerves. He started this Kickstarter project to build some friends to send postcards to. If thats confusing you can check out his project because he explains it better than me. However, I did make him a playlist for his travels and figured I would share it with you guys!

When I played him the playlist he had a few comments I’ll include here. Enjoy and please do check out his project!

1. Coldplay – Postcards From Far Away

Yeah, thats me sending postcards from far away!

2. Paula & Karol – Goodnight Warsaw

Well not “Goodnight” because I haven’t met Warsaw yet so I’m gonna sing “Hello Warsaw!”

3. Rogue Wave – Postage Stamp World

Yea I think thats my new world…

4. Joywave – London

Its dark and weird but I like it. Did I just describe my future feelings on London?

5. Fake Blood – London

Even darker! Woah!

6. RDGLDGRN – Lootin In London

I’ll certainly try not to… and I’ll give stern looks to any looters I see!

7. Jukebox The Ghost – Postcard

A love song about Postcards! My favorite kind of love song!

8. Friendly Fires – Paris
9. Magic Man – Paris
10. Explosions In The Sky – Postcard From 1952
11. Little Dragon – Paris
12. Kate Nash – Paris

Wow its Paris overload time! I was just dancing!

13. Jens Lekman – A Postcard to Nina

Yeah you gotta explain to Nina’s dad whats going on. Sounds confusing!

14. Is Tropical – Berlin
15. The Young Professionals – Fuck Off Berlin

Strong feelings about Berlin! I wonder if my feelings will be that strong…

16. Peter Bjorn And John – School Of Kraut

Its like German surf music! But I don’t think I will be surfing in Berlin…

17. Beirut – Postcards From Italy

I’m not going to Italy but I appreciate the mention of postcards.

18. Bayside – Phone Call From Poland

They should have called this song “A Postcard from Poland” but maybe that never happened to them. I could fix that!

19. Maximo Park – Postcard Of A Painting

I prefer postcards with pictures of rivers or trees or buildings. Just my personal preference.

20. Europe – The Final Countdown

GAH! The countdown is real and I only have hours to pack! Gotta go! 

[VIDEO] Beastie Boys – “Sabotage” MCA Tribute / Kids Edition + “Intergalactic Heads (Its Overture Bootleg)” & Coldplay cover of “Fight For Your Right”

This is a beautiful and awesome and hilarious and moving thing. Thank you, James Winters.

In other MCA tribute related news here are two Beastie jams reworked by people of varying fame.

♫ Beastie Boys – Intergalactic Heads (Its Overture Bootleg)

Who knew that “Intergalactic” would blend so brilliantly with A-Track’s remix of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Heads Will Roll”?

♫ Coldplay – (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!) (Beastie Boys Cover)

Finally, Dubstep Roundup Vol. 28

Its been some time since I’ve dropped some silly bass on your faces.  The Reason: I’ve been working on projects inside and outside of TBE, so its been difficult to mangage time (video clip at the bottom).  Whats awesome: Brandon and I will have some exciting announcements coming up in the next week or so.  For now: Bury your heads in the bass below.

I’ll see you Nurds on the dark side.

Whats up big pimpity pops?  Welcome back.

Its Thanksgiving and time to break away from your ever so important Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Stumble-upon, Myspace (insert joke), Spotify and all things in the cyber-world.  Finally, take a minute and give thanks to the important things in your life like the Family, Happiness, Food and of course The Burning Ear.  You might be thinking “gee Joel, you kinda just contradicted yourself there with the whole cyber thing”.  Well,… I think you’re a contradiction.

Enjoy!
