my itunes is going to explode!
so many good albums release september and october!!!

i didn’t talk about winter passing yet (and it is such a super fun album!  i love to play it during morning rounds).  did i post daisy yet?  my favorite from them.

but i also like fruits of gloom.  reminds me of the pixies.

6131: http://shop.6131records.com/collections/the-winter-passing

and metric pagans in vegas is obviously a hit form top to bottom.  i love dancing around to all the electro beats!  the official music videos are so much fun (as usual)

here’s something else: first acoustic performance of CASCADES. i could listen to acoustic metric alllll day.

and silversun pickups new album, i really can’t stop gushing about last dance (circadian rhythm)!  i was going through another i can’t listen to music phase and must sit in complete silence while i contemplate the meaning of glycolipids for a few weeks (probably brought on by being sick.  i think it’s a vertigo related thing, where music and lights make me feel worse), but after hearing the new sspu song i broke out of that and just wanted to listen to this song on repeat for days.

i patiently await deafheaven’s new album (only a week or two away now, squeeeeeeeal! so excited!)  

there is an amazing essay about them on stereogum right now: http://www.stereogum.com/1831360/premature-evaluation-deafheaven-new-bermuda/franchises/premature-evaluation/

and i promised i was going to hold off buying any more albums after that…

but then loma prieta’s new stuff is dropping on oct2!  i loved fly by night and diamond toot from I.V.

and the new stuff they are streaming is in that vein- crazy awesome guitar riffs with emotional electric lyrics on top.  i think never remember or nostalgia are my favorite tracks so far.

deathwish: http://store.deathwishinc.com/category/LOMAPRIETA.html

and if you like that, the saddest landscape has a new album too!  even the cover art is a thing of beauty.

Loma prieta's I.V. plus tsl's 6th golden ticket is what made me start digging deeper into the hardcore genre.  probably would never have found birds in a row if not for them! as i type this i'm remembering birds in a row also have a new album on deathwish soon, but there's so much to talk about already... and i haven't really previewed any of the songs yet. so, i guess i'll save that for next time.

oh, and do you like drug church?  because they have a “wicked” music video for their album that comes out on oct 30.

these two months have been so RAD for music!
tell me in the comments: favorite new releases. or your favorite tune from the above bands/albums. or something coming out you're excited about.


i've been sick (YES.  AGAIN.)  all weekend and most of monday.

i didn't go to biochem or physics.  i really wanted to (because, exams are coming!) but didn't want to stray too far from the W.C...
i ended up going to campus in the late afternoon to turn in homeworks and go to physics lab.  i could have made up the physics lab but it's just so much easier to suck it up and go at the regular time.  rescheduling anything in my timeline is so much hassle!  it was *almost* a disaster.  it's a dim, musty room with no windows.  there are three air conditioners but they don't circulate very well.  it was embarrassing, i was sweating so much, and having a hard time focusing my eyes on the chalkboard scribbles.  but somehow... our experiment worked!  we were using a special black paper with silver lines that conducts electricity.  and i actually put together a circuit properly! so, monday was not a complete loss.

conductive paper!

today i have no classes (but i will work later tonite) so a little more time to recover.  i will prob finish writing up that physics lab so i don't have to worry about it this weekend.  then do a write up on Brokeback Mountain for my literature class- i watched the movie and read the book for the first time last week.  i would recommend!  a very tragic love story!  

and then finally i will try to understand this explanation from dr biochem:


Hello Professor,
Could you please clarify for me the difference between beta turns and beta sheets?  I was under the impression that beta sheets are comprised of beta turns (and the flat stretches that are h-bonded...) but sometimes it seems like the material refers to to beta turns as a separate type of structure?  

Dr Bingham: 

Beta sheets are sheets of protein sequence (parallel or
anti-parallel), but required beta turns to fold upon themselves, but
the beta turns are not part of these structural beta sheet - but are a
part of the primary sequence of the whole protein.

Beta turns we find in loop regions too - flexible

I wanted to review this super rad album:

A Different Space of Mind

but i can't listen to music right now.  it hurts my head.  :( 
i even had to unplug all my hard drives because they have blinking LED lights on the front that made me nauseous.  being sick super sucks balls.
