yes, it's been awhile since my last post. i've missed several lucky 13 playlists, as well as recaps of mark's local edge show. the past week has had plenty of ups and downs on a personal level, and more of the latter unfortunately. the good news? things are finally on an upswing, which should alleviate a certain amount of stress and allow me a better frame of mind for writing.
but enough about that. let me answer the other question on your mind right now. why is this post done in all lower case? this is a tribute to the band called hormones. not hormones with a capital h, but a lower case h. in fact, i believe all their song titles are strictly lower case. normally, i'm not a fan of punctuation that goes against grammatical rules, but for hormones, i'll make an exception. their tune "to the 9's" is a song that with its somewhat erratic rhythm and high energy makes for an extremely interesting listen.
the video to the song, although fairly simplistic in execution, has a very cool look to it, particularly the paint scenes. the video is directed by the luu brothers, who were also responsible for cocky american's video for "romance tried to kill me". i've posted the video below, but since it's shot in hd, the full screen version cannot be fully appreciated on this site at the time. if you click here, it will take you to the band's youtube page.
