So, this is the end.

I leave you with a high top fade, an old Coogi sweater, and some impeccable harmonies. And, if you’ll follow me after the jump one more time, I’ll leave with you my goodbyes. (more…)

There have been a few kinda definitive YMR bands, and this is one of them. We’ll get into a couple more of them tomorrow as we say goodbye. Break out the hankies then, but for now…

So, this has been coming for a long time, let’s just get to it.

This is gonna be the last week for good ol’ DeadOn. Now now, hold back your tears, please. The time has come, and frankly, we know it might even be a little overdue. We’re gonna take a little time to reflect over the next few days – one last Hills recap, one final trip around the Roundtable – and we’ll have the expected overly sentimental post come Friday.

I love you all a little too much, but we’re all going down this week.

Hey, it’s Friday and it’s payday. You have to like those odds.

You’ve noticed a lack of YMR and NMT around here lately, haven’t you? I’m not gonna lie to you. Work is really busy and blog time gets shorter by the week. We’ll talk about it more in the coming weeks though. For now, here’s a bit of the new Better Than Ezra album Paper Empire.  Enjoy “Absolutely Still”.

Happy Monday – here’s hoping we’ll have a lovely week. I’m sick of the rain that’s plagued May in the DC area.

Happy May Day! Hopefully, I will find myself fully recovered from WHEN ALLERGIES ATTACK 2009 and will be able to fully enjoy these fellas (for like the 30th time) on Saturday. Have a great weekend, y’all.

Not only are The Duhks a great band, they’ve also got a great green project going on right now.

It was a very busy weekend, I’m feeling a little folky and soul-ish today.

Tonight is gonna be a good night, folks. Lily Allen at the 9:30 followed up some a little DC carousing on what is supposed to be a lovely night. Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head is the opener tonight – anyone familiar with them? They look to be a hipster nightmare explosion from the one video I saw on the YouTubes. Anyway, here’s our 47897th time running a Lily Allen video here. Have a great weekend! And thanks again for taking us over a million at last!

Some time in the middle of the night, we hit a milestone here at DeadOn – we cracked the one million mark on page views. It’s an arbitrary celebration, but it feels big to me. Mostly I’m proud of the way we’ve reached 1,000,000 – we’ve never been link whores, we don’t beg other bloggers to link to us, we’ve just kinda fallen into it. If you build it, they will come. Our MTV recaps (especially The Hills…) have been the big traffic driver over the past year, but on occasion our other features have brought in some eyes. So, thanks to the nearly thirty people who have contributed a post or two over the past two plus years and a big thanks to the 1,000,000 plus computer screens that have been tortured with the task of loading our little internets home.

So, uh, here’s one of the most underrated songs of the 90s in celebration.

Monday was a very long day – car inspection in the morning, trip into DC for food and drink with some of the DS commentariot, and then the Nats home opener (coupled with the loss of Harry Kalas and Mark Fidrych that afternoon). Then I had to do two sets of taxes last night. In other words, I lack the time to properly give you a NMT post. Know this – Silversun Pickups is the big release,  Death Cab has an EP getting a physical release, and the extremely excellent Ida Maria album comes out in non-digital form as well. I recommend all three. Especially Ida Maria.

It should be a good day today – I’m taking off from work and heading into town for the Nats home opener vs. the Phils. I wonder if the Nats can challenge 42-120 this year because they look AWFUL thus far. Let’s dance, shall we?

Howdy gang! Are you enjoy the influx of Hills-related madness as much as I am? I’ve missed you crazy commenters!

Well, things didn’t work out for Sparty last night. As a graduate of a large public mid-Michigan university, this brings me much sadness. Such is life. The good news is that today is just loaded with good music awaiting you on the store shelves.

New Tragically Hip today! Hells yes! Can you tell I spent a lot of my formative years near the Canadian border? Is it obvious yet? But wait, there’s A LOT MORE!!! (more…)

I’m kinda low on time and its not the most exciting week either…

New PB&J and the in-store release of It’s Blitz! are what you need to know about. But you already knew that. Sorry for no real rundown this week, but we’ve gotta get the Idol Roundtable page view machine rolling…

Just because we’ve said goodbye to Fat Dale, Jr. doesn’t mean we’ve stopped carrying on over here. Have a good weekend folks, we’ll see you back again on Monday.

So, uh, hopefully we’ll have that Idol Roundtable up for you today. In the meantime, enjoy this:
