The Temper Trap & MJ

A while back, I was watching the trailer for the upcoming film '500 Days of Summer', and really loved the track that was playing over it. So, after a quick search, I found out that the track was called 'Sweet Disposition', by a band called The Temper Trap.

Turns out that these guys are from Melbourne, where I lived for a few years before I came to Dubai. Fascinating, right?

Anyway, they've just launched their debut album 'Conditions' in Australia, and are touring the UK as I type these very words. And, luckily for us, they've filmed a video for the aforementioned track, Sweet Disposition. And it is good. So I will post it...

Check out their Myspace page if you'd like to hear some more tracks, they're all pretty great.

And yes, I've noticed that the Beatles video below has been removed, but I'm too lazy to fix the post or find a replacement video.

And just because every single site on the internet has paid tribute to Michael Jackson in some way this week, I thought I'd just post this old Pepsi commercial that is kinda nice. It's a bit cheesy, but it's still a nice way to remember the guy.

I shook Michael Jackson's hand once when I met him when I was like 12 years old at an art gallery. It was during his black silk mask stage, and he seemed like a very gentle person. I don't want to pass judgment on some of the things he did in his personal life, but the guy made some great music.


  1. I don't think any of us really knew what was going on in his private life.
    Awesome tune too, trying to find more of their other music now.

  2. I don't think that's cheesy at all, didn't even realise it was a Pepsi commercial...Poignant especially because even when he was alive there seemed such a disconnect between the adult MJ and him as a kid (though he remained childlike, seemed a different person!)...very nicely done! Love the song too, so that helps, RIP

  3. I think the admin of this web site is actually working hard in favor of his web site, since here every data is quality based information.
