The Faint got married! [31 Jan 2006|11:45pm]

I read that Todd got married last year to Orenda from Azure Ray. That's awesome! I think it's cute how he changed his last name instead of her changing her last name.

But I have a question. I have been seeing a lot of pictures recently of Dapose wearing a ring on that finger. Does anybody know if he is married as well? I also heard that Jacob got married. Everybody's gettin' married!

Congrats to all three if it is true!

"There's always something kind of test tube baby about laptopica, but Peterson found interesting ways to grant his record some organic textures; though a bit of the disc was composed using Reason software and sounds to some degree like what you'd expect in a Faint instrumental piece, the album benefits from guest guitarists, live bells, chimes and odd instruments, and some burbly-gurgly-crackly undertones that link several tracks, occasionally reminiscent of crinkling fabric or a palpitating heart." - William Bowers, Pitchfork Media

Mark your calendar: Orenda Fink (of Azure Ray) and Neva Dinova will play at the Echo on November 5. Buy tickets here.

If anyone's interested.... [14 Jun 2005|09:29pm]

I was just setting up my scanner and needed a test subject. Old 7th grade yearbook was handy, so I scanned Todd Baechle's (now Fink, actually - according to the website he got married in March) yearbook picture. This was 1986-1987 at Arbor Heights Junior High in Omaha, NE.

I'm Maxine.
I'm going to see The Faint tonight.
Bright Eyes will also be there...but I'll probably leave.
Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had been to a show yet.
If so, how affordable was the merch?
I need to know how much I'm gonna have to bring tonight.
That's it.
Thanks kids.

free ipod [29 Sep 2004|09:47pm]

im gonna post on my music communities about the free ipod... its a very legit deal.

just sign up here http://www.freeiPods.com/default.aspx?referer=9378858 and all you have to do is get 5 referals, it requires a credit card, but if you go to ancestory.com, it gives you a two week trial, you can cancel it right after you get credit (literally within minutes you can cancel) then you dont get charged with anything. and you get an ipod sent to you.

many people have done it, jsut check www.freeipodguide.com (shows legit stuff)

if ancestry.com isnt up try any of teh otherr offers witha trial, so you can cancel anytime!

thanks guys, good luck

Request [26 Sep 2004|11:19pm]

Hi, I have a request. I hope I don't annoy anyone...

If anyone could please give me their interpretation of the following song, "Your Retro Career Melted" by The Faint that would be greatly appreciated! I need to use the song for a project but I'm having a hard time figuring out what exactly it means. What do you think this song is about? (Helps if you heard the song!) But even if you haven't, go ahead and post.

"you retro career melted" by The Faint

recovering slowly, a torso fell
from a beat up truck by a rural motel.
the manager seen how the truck bed bounced
while dust flew up with a rolling sound.
voices appear from the staff outside
in bulbous text in a western style
his mannequin neck spun to turn his face
the bars spills drunks out frame by frame
girls pushed girls side to side
to hear a suction sound as limbs realign
the crowd just seemed to multiply
they hear his plastic jaw as the news drops hard:
"your retro career melted"
they couldn't have agreed with the mannequin less
they didn't understand what the mannequin meant
the sound of a barreled gun held to the back
some plastic clicks as the shell parts pass.
flesh tone shards fly by wild
they fill a plastic bag with the parts inside
the bag got dumped, a town nearby
they reassembled fast as his voice dropped hard:
"your retro career melted"
