Transatlanticism is 10 years old – WTF???

So in connection with my last post today marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Death Cab for Cutie’s “Transatlanticism,” which is probably one of my top favorite albums for me. At it release the album was a huge turning point in popular culture and on the music scene in general. People had started to move away from the radio friendly songs and Top Forty, we were starting to grow-up. This album has stood the test of 10 years and still sounds relevant and as beautiful as it did 10 years ago. I was a sophomore in college when this came out. This album was first for me, In that not only did all my art school friends like it, but my fraternity brothers (which never happened before). It was great to re-listen to this album as a whole (which I haven’t done in awhile) and rediscover some of these forgotten gems.

About veggiescruff

You may be wondering what the hell VeggieScruff means? Well my last name is Turnipseed that leads to the nickname Veggie, which I’ve had for years. The scruff part didn’t come till years later with I started to develop an admiration for beards and guys with them. I also grew a love for beer and as the years passed I began experimenting and trying new different beers. But the one thing that has always been present in my life was music, ever since I was a kid. Most of my friends even refer to me as a music-snob, I think it’s meant to enduring or at least that how I’m taking it. So basically a bearded guy will always gets my attention. Then if said bearded guy were drinking a microbrew or craft beer then I’d be intrigued. But if said dude with beer was listening to really awesome music… well then you’d be reading this blog, that or be on the best date ever. So feel free to follow along or leave, the title only consists of just some of my main interest but I’m also a Printmaker and Designer so some of those topics will be scattered about and probably a few random rants too. My posts may not be relevant or even safe for work. But I will always try to be honest, entertaining and even hopefully informative from time to time, if I feel like it.
