Satellite Stories! FINLAND!

 I sent Satellite Stories an interview request last March. that's a lifetime ago! but according to some logic, March and October are KIND OF the same.

so then I was drinking and thinking to myself, when I saw them on my Facebook newsfeed, that I should be like HEY YOU NEVER RESPONDED and see what happened! other bands that have ignored such requests:

- Lykke Li (not a band)
- Mila Kunis (not a band)
- Passion Pit (a band) 

well, they were nice enough to send me back answers, so thanks, you sweet Finnish boys! 





and here is what these Finns on the rise- think fast, Two Door Cinema Club like indie rock- had to say to me. please note some of these questions are outdated! OOPS! 

you have on your myspace that you were the most blogged about Finnish band in 2010. so I'm taking it 2010 was a very big year for you?
Satellite Stories:  2010 seemed like a big year, but 2011 was way huger than 2010. We played at major Finnish summer festivals and toured Germany and Switzerland. Next year will be of course even huger than 2011, when we release our new EP in spring. I just wish I could leak all the songs to Internet :D Everyone's going to like them for sure. (!!!)

you're getting really popular on hype machine I've noticed (which is how I was introduced to you!)- were you aware of that? (I'm sure you were, but sometimes!)

Satellite Stories:  Yeah, we're aware of the Hype Machine popularity. But popularity at the Internet comes and goes. Playing gigs makes a band more popular than just releasing songs at the Internet, that's why we try to play lots of gigs.
what are some exciting things you have coming up? (recording more tracks, playing more shows in Finland, etc?)
Satellite Stories:  I actually answered this to in question 1. But I forgot to tell that we are releasing a new single at the start of December. It's our darkest song yet. And it is very danceable and energetic.


how did you all start making music?
Satellite Stories:  Esa and Jyri used to hang around and Esa met Olli-Pekka at university of Oulu. Marko joined year later when old guitarist Taneli moved away to study rocket science. It was all really natural. 

yeah I mentioned myspace DO SOMETHING

thanks boys! best of luck to you!

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
