Weekendcore: Paramore – “Misery Business”


Well…the adorable woman is back on the market, so…there’s that?

After about a decade together and 1 1/2 years of marriage, New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert and Paramore’s Hayley Williams are breaking up.  Only they really know why, but there are the cheating stories on his part.  So…here’s a song by one of their bands – with fairly appropriate subject matter!

Weekendcore: The Story So Far – “Empty Space”


Sometimes I am reminded by my fiancée that I can even enjoy the simplicity of using my iPhone’s Bluetooth to listen to music in the car.  This week that happened, and I rocked a bunch of The Story So Far (which led to JOKES YO).  That said, let’s rock ’em here too for “Weekendcore” shall we?

Weekendcore: Yellowcard – “Life of a Salesman”


Happy Father’s Day to all of TPS’ dad readers!  It’s surprisingly hard to find positive songs about dads in our world.  I was thinking about “Father of Mine” and all those, and having trouble sifting through the negative.  Finally, though, Yellowcard came through in the clutch.

Profile: Reach for Neptune


We’ll call it promo.  (Pizza?)

I was on the ol’ Twitter the other day and randomly came across a band.  Upon seeing they’re called Reach for Neptune I went “Neptune is my favourite planet!”  Upon seeing they’re from San Jose, California I went “I love San Jose!”  Then I loved how they play pop-punk/easycore and went “I will immediately become a fan and then write about them!”

Weekendcore: Gob -“Soda”


“Weekendcore” on a Monday???  WTF???  Well, it’s the Victoria Day long weekend in Canada (where TPS is based, of course) so yeah!  Let’s celebrate the unofficial start of summer with some appropriate tunage.

Pleases of Suburbia: “All the Houses Look the Same”


“In the parking lot/of the 7-11 where I was taught…”

It kicked off with “I Love Commuting to/Visiting the Big City But Then Getting the Hell Out”.  After that it was “Mo’ fo’ Yo’ Money Out Here, Downtown Hipster!”, then “Bored in the Rec Room”, then “Malls Conveniently Put Many Shopping Options in One Spot”.  Now, Pleases of Suburbia reaches the end with a song that encapsulates the lifestyle’s perks – even with the understandable disdain.

Pleases of Suburbia: “Malls Conveniently Put Many Shopping Options in One Spot”


We’re getting into the home stretch of this here parody concept EP.  First came “I Love Commuting to/Visiting the Big City But Then Getting the Hell Out”, then “Mo’ fo’ Yo’ Money Out Here, Downtown Hipster!”, then it got all skit-y with “Bored in the Rec Room”.  The latter was actually less pro-suburbia and more reality, but we gotta honour the dicey parts of the lifestyle even in this project.  Now though, we go back to being all about that life.

Aside from those oh-so-evil chain stores *wank motion*, people don’t really have issues with malls.  And why should they, because malls are pretty solid.  So, let’s celebrate them!

Weekendcore: Fenix TX – “Phoebe Cates”


Impending boobs and stuff!

2001’s Lechuza was the last album Fenix TX put out before their 2002 breakup.  Appearing on it, as well as the American Pie 2 soundtrack, was “Phoebe Cates”.  It was the first song I’d ever heard by the band, and it’s still my favourite of theirs.

Pleases of Suburbia: “Mo’ fo’ Yo’ Money Out Here, Downtown Hipster!”


Last week we debuted the first track off parody concept EP Pleases of Suburbia, “I Love Commuting to/Visiting the Big City But Then Getting the Hell Out”.  This week we tackle really the main reason people move to the suburbs: you get more bang for your buck.
