silverstein, men’s college basketball and other things….
T minus 5 days and counting til This is How the Wind Shifts by Silverstein comes out. Yeah I’m dorky enough over this band to preorder the vinyl and the version with extra songs on itunes —BOTH. Super-stoked to see the interview with Shane Told in this month’s AP.
Speaking of AP, PTV is on the cover,. I luckily got the cover with Jaime and Tony on the cover in the mail. I really need to hit up my local bookstore and get the cover with the band and with the bros Fuentes too. I guess right now PTV, MCR, and OLP would be my seconds in command along with Slingshot Dakota, who remind me of a cross between Candy Hearts and Jenny Lewis and Rilo KIley.
In non related to the scene news, Clemson Men’s Basketball went to 4 and 4 in ACC play. Super happy to see them on an upward swing. Hoping that they can continue to win and do more than break even for the year. I wanna an invitation the the Big Dance, baby! Yeah my inner Dick Vitale is coming out! Lookout! On a side note, I’m really gonna miss Milton Jennings when he graduates after this season. I’m immensely enjoying Rod Hall as a ball handler, and KJ Mc Daniels’ all around game is intense!
Duke took it to Wake Forest in Winston Salem last night. I was proud of them for getting a hard-fought ACC road win! I’m really gonna miss Mason Plumlee after this season.
The ACC is so balanced this year in terms of inexperienced teams, except maybe Miami and FSU, who have a lot of seniors. And also, happen to be at the top of the league, which is weird as hell. Of course, UNC lost a lot of players, so that explains why they’re middle of the pack,. But believe me UNC is WAY more fun to beat when they’re good than when they’re mediocre.
Oh and how about NC State being back in the top 25?! I love it. Jimmy V’s probably having a party about it up in Heaven. I hate to say it but Wood’s a PTPer, and fun to watch so long as Duke or Clemson isn’t playing them!
