The Matches are coming next week!!

On March 2nd, 2007 The Matches are going to be at The Shelter in Detroit. I've been looking forward to this show for a long time, they are probably my favorite band right now, so go check them out. :) No seriously go to the show.

Lucky Boys Confusion, The Shelter, February 23rd, 2007

Last night may or may not be the last time we ever get to see Lucky Boys Confusion in Detroit. They are on what they call "hiatus", but the rest of us call breaking up. They have been a struggling rock band for 10 years, 7 of those years have been touring across the country playing close to 200 shows a year, and they are getting pretty burned out, and haven't quite made it to prime time yet. While bands that used to open for them, like Fall Out Boy, and the Plain White T's have had some success; Lucky Boys Confusion has not. While I like Fall Out Boy and the Plain White T's I don't think they are any better than LBC. I just hope this wasn't the last time we get to see them, well at least the show last night was great. Here is what I can remember from the set list.

Anything, Anything
Closer to Our Graves
Breaking Rules
Saturday Night
Rolling Rock
City Lights
Like Rats from a Sinking Ship
Blood Drops
Hey Driver

Not necessarily in that order, but pretty close. There were a few hundred people in The Shelter last night to see LBC, and it looked like the band was having a good time. I sure hope they don't call it quits, and keep making great music. The video isn't from last nights show, it's just the best one I could find on Youtube, everyone should check out Lucky Boys Confusion.


A new David Fincher movie is finally coming up in 2007, March 2nd to be exact. :) It's been 5 years since a Fincher directed flick has come out, and it's about time. I'm really looking forward to this one. I've loved most of Fincher's flicks like Fight Club, Seven, and The Game, while The Panic Room was pretty good I wouldn't put it up there with the other three. We don't really have to mention Alien 3, do we? This movie has a great cast with Jake Gyllenhaall, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey, Jr., and Anthony Edwards to name a few. I'll be going to see it next weekend for sure, and you probably should too.

Currently Playing: Crackdown (Xbox 360)

A new game has finally taken the place of Rainbow Six: Vegas in my 360 (at least for now). Yesterday Crackdown appeared in my mailbox. I haven't logged to much time in the game yet, but it's fun as hell. To sum up the game it's Grand Theft Auto on crack. It's has a few different islands where gangs have a presence and you have to get in there and restore order. The levels are crazy vertical, and there are a lot of things to do. I haven't unlocked too many achievements yet, but this video is of some of the trickier, fun achievements to get. I haven't even tried the Co-op option, but I'm looking forward to getting into that this weekend. I'll report more after I've put about 10 hours or so in. :)

The Simpsons Movie

Fox aired a new trailer for the upcoming Simpsons Movie last night during a commercial break. I don't know if it was the unusually good episode of The Simpsons that has me excited for the movie or if the movie actually looks good. I'll let the trailer speak for itself.

Currently Playing: Rainbow Six: Vegas

I can't get enough of this game. It's the only game that has been in my Xbox 360 as of late, and I don't see myself changing that disk out anytime soon. If you have a 360, you have to be playing this game. It's that much fun, the multi-player is amazing, and the single player is even great. It's fun as hell to play online with your friends. My gamertag is G Tuck add me, and we can play.

The Riches

I finally found a trailer for The Riches so that I can post this. I've seen little promo clips here and there, and this just explains it better than I can. It looks great, and it's finally going to start on March 12th, so don't forget to set your Tivo's. The show stars Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver (both British) covering up their accents, and playing an American couple. They stumble into the American dream without having to work for it, and they try to ride it out without screwing it up. I love the line in the trailer that Eddie delivers at a cocktail party "I'm in pediatrics, children mostly, retards." Maybe not the most politically correct line in television history, but it makes me giggle. :)
