Sic Transit Gloria…Glory Fades | Brand New

Sic Transit Gloria roughly translates from latin to english as passes the glory of the world.  That momentary power and fame are temporary and we should search not only in ourselves but in our world. That flights of fancy are just that Рfleeting.  Pop Punk band Brand New has created a high art video not normally seen. The video still stands out about a decade later. Our director, Marc Webb, has gone on to direct 500 Days of Summer and The Amazing Spider-man featuring my favourite Gwen Stacy played by Emma Stone (Mary Jane can suck it).

View the Cover where Band We are the Crowd turns the song into a duet. Its a nice interpretation.


Sheena’s Still Rocking | The Kids are Alright

Sheena’s Still Rocking.

It exists in the fray. Beyond the barriers of the confined reality. The chains you tie her to are dismantled as she rages against the dying of the night.

This; power you receive when you exist in the cracks. The sound goes clickity clack.

The percussion.
The vibration.
The rising crescendo.

Faster. Harder.
Hit the snare.
Shred the guitar.
Harder still.
