Ever noticed whether or not you become more popular when you leave town? It happens to me. I suppose if I really wanted to be extremely popular, I need to leave town more often. Ha ha ha. I know that I get more phone calls for things to do or hang with. It’s a good feeling to be wanted. It’s just weird when it comes at a time when you’re not there to do it.
I’m actually not out of town right now. I was only thinking back on times when I was.
No today is about me wanting a particular feeling in a body part to leave. I would love it if that feeling would leave. Top of my left foot has been on the verge of feeling numb since yesterday morning. A couple of times last night I was able to get the feeling back, but it is kinda there this morning. I probably need to visit the chiropractor as I probably tweaked something somewhere that has pinched a nerve or something.
I’m going to at least get out in the sun today. Go hang with my friend Donovan, swing some clubs at a little white ball. I gotta practice if I’m ever gonna be on some type of Rockstar & Jock type of event list. Don’t want to be totally embarrassed. Though if it came to skiing or mountain biking at such an event, I’d be able to hold my own much better.
While you ought to be getting out of town to enjoy yourself, or at least out in the sun… Enjoy this tune from a band out of Southern California, The Dares. I’ve actually held off on putting them up on Single of the Day thinking their music would be on the digital services in short time, but after a month it hasn’t shown up. Thus it’s why they’re on Sunday’s Child.
It’s not groundbreaking music, but it’s fun in the modern slightly poppy punky type of thing. It’s catchy, it’s well produced and I can bop my head to it without feeling like a dork. I imagine that The Dares would do well on the Vans Warped Tour. Maybe they’ve already been on it.
The main guitar riff is very reminiscent of The Kinks. A band that is probably the early precursor to power punk pop. The originators of the genre as it is today.
As I’m looking thru their site I’m noticing they’re on a major label. Which is even more odd that it’s not on the digital services. Hmmm… I’m betting they will gain a bunch of new fans in the coming year. They look good, they sound good. It’s a complete package in terms of the style.
And now I’ve got to leave. Love me! And go sign up for The Dares mailing list to find out when they’re being released.
