Slow down, think it over

I've spent the last few days trying to remember where I picked up my copy of Fedra by the Pittsburgh band Shade. I know I saw them at Alchemize (back when Alchemize was in Over The Rhine) before a Boys and Girls night. I have a feeling it was the weekend that Josh and all his friend were in town, but I was so exhausted by the time we got to Alchemize that everything is a little fuzzy.

I've spent all this time thinking about when I bought the CD because the album itself isn't that great. The band is awesome live and I highly recommend you go see them if they come to your town, but the CD sounds flat. I think this happens with new bands a lot. I don't know if it's actually being in a studio and all the bells and whistles they offer or what. Maybe I just need to listen to the CD with a beer so it will feel more like a live show.

So to sum it up:
Shade is a nice band.
Go see their show.
Don't buy Fedra.
Maybe buy any new recording instead.

Hey. I was just looking at one of your pictures on threadless, and I was wondering if you could help me pick a size because, well, I'm really not thin at all. I bought a shirt once and it was XL for girls, but that doesn't fit me anymore, so I was wondering if maybe you could tell me what size you get your shirts in so that I could have a clue.

Thank you.

Oh, don't even get me started on the ridiculous sizes of American Apparel girlie tees. I checked out an XL once and it looked like a kids sized shirt. I bought tees for my friend recently and I had to get even my tiniest skinny friends large girlie shirts.

Anyway, I usually get a guys large from Threadless. If they shrink too much they can sometimes be a little tight across the chest, but I'm well equipped that way. The guys XL is pretty big and I find it too large.

I hope that helps! I love Threadless.
