EPR/Love and how much it sucks/Songs about love and how much it sucks

Happy &%$#*!@ Valentine’s Day everyone! I’m really not very enthusiastic about this occasion. At least I didn’t get dumped just days before this awful holiday this year, unlike several years in the past! There’s an up-side to everything, I guess? Yeah, whatever. Love sucks. Boys suck. Bah humbug,

ANYWAY, tomorrow night, I’m playing at the Bloody Valentine edition of Electro Pop Rocks featuring Doorly and my friends Eric Sharp and DRRN. It's DRRN's birthday! Woo! I will probably be wearing some amount of fake blood. I’m not sure if I’m going to cover myself with the stuff, but I feel that at least a little is necessary.

There are a couple of songs that I’ve had on repeat lately. One is about love and how great it is, and the other is about how much it sucks when it goes wrong.

First up, I have Ken-C’s remix of “Love You Like A Love Song” by Selena Gomez (yes, Selena Gomez. Don’t laugh before you give it a listen).

Ken-C (who’s actually a Bay Area local who has migrated to So Cal) turns it from a sappy little Disney piece of crap that only the likes of Justin Bieber’s girlfriend would sing, into an electro rave power anthem. I dig.

Second, I have a remix of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know” by some guy/guys called 4FRNT. Now. I have NO IDEA who these guys are. I can’t find anything about them anywhere. I can’t even find this song for sale or download anywhere. They have a Facebook fan page with nothing on it. Who are they?!?! This remix is SO. GOOD. I find it especially relevant because when I first heard it, I felt like I was singing Kimbra’s part with regards to the most recent asshole to break my heart. Boo hoo. Check it out:

If you know anything about 4FRNT, tell me! Comment! Post it on my Facebook! SOMETHING! Who knows, maybe they’ll show up at a future EPR if I can find these people...
