I've been listening to frat boy rock a lot. Ever since that youtube video of the parasailer caught in that slow motion fall down a cliff face, all beautifully set to Awolnation's "Sail".... (Don't worry, he survived.) I've been infected with a heretofore uncovered appreciation of loud, driving, repetitive, somewhat ridiculous, gloriously self destructive frat boy/soldier rock. It's the kind of music the army would probably love to play in its commercials if any band would be stupid enough to sign over the rights. I'm listening to one song now, on the treadmill, " they will not control us, we will be victorious ..", (while, oddly, in the background, the music of Blondie's 'call Me' is sampled... Isn't that the love song of a prostitute? I guess. i'll have to check later)

Anyway, it's the season of rebirth and all these anthems are inspiring me to want to jump off some clifts, pull a butch and sundance and go out in a blaze of glory.
