an MP3 intro to Hot Hot Heat, the Killers vs. HHH

to: all the pretty college girls
from: an Orioles and Ravens kid

MP3: Hot Hot Heat - "Talk to Me, Dance With Me"

BONUS: this song features a fucking cowbell! if Blue Oyster Cult, Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell have taught us anything, it's that EVERY song could use some more cowbell.

MP3: Hot Hot Heat - "Middle of Nowhere"

MP3: Hot Hot Heat - "Bandages" my personal fave, listen for the SICK drumming throughout the tune, as well as for the cool harmonic guitar work

MP3: Hot Hot Heat - "You Owe Me an IOU"

More blogs about MP3s.

I saw these guys live not too long ago at Sonar in Baltimore, MD. They put on an amazingly disgusting show, rocking hard and making all the college girls there quite hot and bothered.

my Letter Never Sent review of the HHH show.

let me know what you guys think... I think Hot Hot Heat are in the same group of bands as the Killers. In fact, I contend Hot Hot Heat is the college answer to the current (more popular) Kings of Rock. I would go so far as to say that HHH are R.E.M. to the Killers' U2.

so sorry, Maryland fans, but Duke doesn't care, never has, never will.

Socrates would ask:

How many national championships does Maryland have? How many ACC titles? How many NPOTY? How many NBA players starting for NBA teams? Who winds up having more games broadcast on national TV, Duke, or Maryland? Which team makes corporate, capitalist America more cash money, Duke, or Maryland?

Take off your rose-colored glasses and answer the damn questions. Let's be objective here.

Win or lose tonight on national TV, Maryland is the red-headed stepchild of the ACC... just because a blind squirrel... you know how the saying goes.

Win or lose tonight, Duke will be pumped up and angry. This makes them dangerous.

Don't expect J.J. Redick and Shelden Williams to both have bad games. One of the two seniors, or both, will go off. Sean Dockery will be a key, and DeMarcus Nelson could come flying off the bench in the second half to put this sucker out of reach for good.

Expect a close game (10 points or less), or a 30-point embarrasment.

Either way... when's that UNC game again??
