War Stories by UNKLE is the album of the year. My favorite song is number 7, Burn My Shadow. It fucking rocks. This album is wayyy better then anything I have recently heard including Smashing Pumpkin’s Zeitgeist. [Amazon]
Late May I purchased two tickets to the Nine Inch Nails and Foo Fighters concert in Dublin and surprisingly today I received the tickets in regular mail! I had emailed Ticketmaster telling them specifically NOT to mail me the tickets because I was sure they would get lost in the mail. Magically they arrived to my mailbox and not only that, the tickets arrived before the concert date. The Kuwait postal service must have gotten a makeover.
update: My tickets were mailed out on June 12, they arrived to my PO Box on June 20th. One week from Ireland to Kuwait, thats really good.
I have no clue why they did it, but its cool to watch.
Yesterday Tiesto was supposed to be playing in Bahrain but it seems the organizers were liars and Tiesto never ended up showing up. When people started booing the organizers (B&D Entertainment), security started throwing people out and that resulted in a riot. Abadi, a blogger in Bahrain has a full
right up writeup of what happened and like the thousands of people who paid to watch Tiesto, he is really pissed. [Link]

The baby on the Nirvana’s Nevermind album is now 17!
One of my favorite shows has ended and although the last episode wasn’t as dramatic as the Six Feet Under finale, it was still great. The last episode had a lot of memorable songs including the final one at the diner which I can’t seem to get out of my head. For a full list of songs that played during the last episode check out this post on Stereogum. [Link]

I just bought two tickets for the Nine Inch Nails and Foo Fighters concert that will be held on August 22nd in Dublin. August 22nd is my birthday which is perfect timing plus I have never been to Ireland before so it should be fun.
Only thing I am worried about is getting the tickets. My shipping and billing address had to be the same while paying for the tickets so I used my regular unreliable Kuwait PO Box. I hope it doesn’t get lost in the mail…
update: I spoke to Ticket Master about my problem and they will now no longer mail me the tickets but instead I will be able to pick it up from the box office.
