[Note: Today’s post was written by a friend and camper of mine, Aaron Gold. Enjoy his happy-child indie-rock. Also, he’s running a half marathon to raise money for seriously ill children, so support him here.]
Today will forever be known as the day after 10/10/10. [Edit: Obviously he sent me the post on the 11th. My lack of ambition had me post it two days late.] My highlighter has a better chance in going down in history as something greater then this day. What’s the point? The point is, life is too fucking short to keep playing the same song over and over. How many times do we have to listen to Lady Gaga before wanting to put our heads in a wood-chipper? (according to my iTunes, 121 times)
So as some of us find ourselves stuck in the midst of a grueling semester, grinding out long hours in the library, it’s time for a change. I’m not talking Barak Obama change, I’m talking Che Guevara change, full-on communist takeover change. [Edit: I do not promote these political views. Che was a brutal revolutionary who horribly murdered many innocent citizens.] Here’s a little indie swag to brighten your day.
