Time for my big fall playlist! Autumn is absolutely my favorite season in New York and being a couple thousand miles away, I've used these songs get me in the spirit of the big northern season change.
There's something about music that connects me to random (at the time seemingly inconsequential) moments in my life. When I hear some of these tunes, I have very vivid memories of last fall. For instance, when I hear track 2, "Second Chance," I always think of waiting for the A train on the morning of Halloween. Or Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" always makes me think of walking around the west village with my iPod and a travel mug of cider. So here's a collection of the new tunes I'm digging this fall, as well as some old one's that really get me into the mood of the changing of the seasons.
"Never Forget You" -- Noisettes
"Second Chance" -- Liam Finn
"Cool Yourself" -- Thao
"Lust for Life" -- GIRLS
"Blow Away" -- A Fine Frenzy
"Pain Song" -- It's a Musical
"A-Punk" -- Vampire Weekend
"Psalms 40:2" -- The Mountain Goats
"Skinny Love" -- Bon Iver
"Heartbeats" -- Jose Gonzalez
"I Knew" -- Lightning Dust
"Empire State of Mind" -- Jay-Z (feat. Alica Keys)
"Dominos" -- The Big Pink
"Smoke in Your Disguise" -- New Roman Times
"The Ruminant Band" -- Fruit Bats
"More Stars Than There Are In Heaven" -- Yo La Tengo

The opening number from Benj & Justin's new musical DOGFIGHT. It is so wonderful hearing how much they've matured musically in just a couple years. If the rest of the musical sounds this good, they've got a hell of a show on their hands. DOGFIGHT was also recently commissioned by Lincoln Center. Pretty freaking cool!
Hey guys, check out the pilot episode of WIENER & WIENER, a new webseries. So far I likes what I sees! Some good old non-sequitur humor, a fun hummable soundtrack and some nicely set up shots are definitely making this a webshow that I'm gonna follow.
So I can't accept any more friends on facebook per their 5,000 limit so if you've requested me and I haven't accepted, feel free to add me via my fan page. I feel kinda gross having a fan page and I promise I don't think I'm so cool that I need one. I just feel bad declining you guys when you've been so supportive of my internet projects. I've added a ton of pictures and info so it's pretty much the same as my regular page and I promise to keep updating!

Very excited about this new webseries, WIENER & WIENER, coming soon to youtube! The combination of a campy trailer, familiar faces, dancing on a subway platforms and an edible main character all seem like good omens for this new show.
