pmaCAST #6: The "F*** My Life" Episode



Have you ever tried counting how many times you say "Fuck My Life" out loud? No? You should. The results may shock you. I stopped counting after my tally hit 13. Maybe I'm just a big whiner, but a couple of days ago I created this playlist on my iPod to de-stress myself. It features some great tunes that have always made me happy and don't remind me of anything negative — good vibes all around. It worked out pretty well.

So when Saturday night came around, I was stumped trying to come up with a theme/tracklist for today's pmaCAST. Then I had an epiphany: I am not the only guy in the world who needs some de-stressing. My stress is nothing compared to people with real problems! So why should I lock this playlist up in the sweet confines of my iPod? I love you guys too much to do that.

There's really nothing much to say about this week's pmaCAST, other than it is meant to be really feel good-y. I start it up with my FAVORITE song of the moment, Feist and Ben Gibbard's "Train Song." I follow it up with Little Jackie's "The World Should Revolve Around Me" and Lenka's "The Show," two of my favorite songs out on Top 40 radio. Then comes the Mae Shi with their Christian Bale tribute "R U Professional" — if this song doesn't make you smile, you're retarded. Up next are the Veronicas with their brutally stoic and heartless piece of pop majesty, "Untouched." The next three songs are by artists you should really keep an eye on from now on: The Whitest Boy Alive, Passion Pit, and Ted & Francis. Following them is a club remix (though it doesn't really sound like it) of Hercules & Love Affair's "Blind" — one of 2008's most beautifully sad anthems.

I threw in "Walking On A Dream" by Empire of the Sun (another band you should keep an eye on) right before Lily Allen's "Fuck You," off her new album, It's Not Me, It's You. This song is trill. Like super trill. I close up the podcast with a new Timid Tiger song. I know some of you are really feeling their stuff, and I'm glad. "Gadget Girls" is another song that will be featured on Timid Tiger's new EP that will be released here pretty soon, more info on that later, I promise.

So that's the rundown of what's playing on this week's pmaCAST. So tell me, what did/do you need de-stressing on? PS: Check this site out, good for a few lolz
