13 Feb 2009, 18:36 by hdsanderTo celebrate the return of well formatted lists to the Last.fm journals, I made a list of One Hit Wonders with a little help of my friend knirrie and Last.fm's tags. Don't bother if you find your favorite artist here, some of mine are as also on this list. "A one-hit wonder is a music industry term to describe an artist generally known for only one hit single." says Wikipedia.

16 Dec 2007, 11:24 by leandromargotoHá exatamente doze anos atrás, quando eu assinava revistinhas da Turma da Mônica, a editora mandou de presente quatro CDs: um de Jazz, um de Country, um de MPB e, finalmente, um de Rock. É desse último que gostaria de falar. Simplesmente foi o início de tudo pra mim. Eu tinha oito anos de idade, e um dia resolvi pegar esse CD pra ouvir, porque tinha ouvido dizer que Rock era um som maneirão. Coloquei pra tocar e mal acreditei no que ouvia. Olha só o repertório:
1: Bill Haley & His Comets - Rock Around the Clock (clássico)
2: Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire (talvez ele tenha sido melhor que o Elvis)
3: Trini Lopez - If I Had A Hammer (uma vez Homer Simpson cantou um trecho dessa)
4: Chubby Checker - Let's Twist Again (eu sempre imaginei que o cantor dessa música fosse um cara igual ao Tim Maia, não sei por que)
5: The Beach Boys - Surfin' Safari (lindo)
6: Herman's Hermit - No Milk Today (estou tocando muito essa música nos últimos dias)
6 Nov 2007, 22:27 by MrModernRockYou're born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake son.
In lieu of a top ten journal last week, I posted the Mixes for the Masses' Official 2007 Halloween Mix, but my top ten wasn't that interesting anyway, so it would have been a drag.
Weather has finally decided it wants to be cold and its never too late to start, hell its the beginning of November and I don't think we've had a week yet that there hasn't been a day in the 70s. As I was saying, though, Weather has decided it wants to be cold and you can tell not because the shorts are put away and the MF DOOM hoodie is making multiple appearances, but because you can smell the cold. I caught a whiff of it last week, but this week has been that cool, tingly smell that can only mean its going to be cold for 3-4 months until shit comes back to life. …

Mixes for the Masses proudly presents the Official 2007 Halloween Mix.
In modern cinema, especially in horror films, the production has shifted its focus away from the character and their portrayal to more action-oriented, gore-filled fests. While all the torture/gore-porns can be unnerving, I personally don't find the visual glorification thrilling, or suspenseful, much less scary. Bone-chilling, yes, but not for the reasons that I enjoy horror films. I admit I do like seeing a zombie ripping somebody's intestine's out and then snacking on them seconds later, but the movie shouldn't be centered around it. I guess I could say zombies are my favorite subgenre of horror, since most of the horror films I own are zombie films and its mainly because I like the obvious social commentary as it provides a cool conflict which poses the question of which is really the monster, the zombie or the society? Dawn of the Dead is probably the best example of this as the zombies clamor to the mall and the shops…
