New music from Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin

Today is awesome, I found out this morning that both the new Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin albums had come out. They're pretty good, I love working out with this stuff in my headphones. Check them out if you like heavy rock/metal.

Three Days Grace - Life Starts Now
One of the singles off the album, "break"
Their lead singer's voice is unreal, such a sick voice for just screaming over heavy music. Love it. I would love to see these guys live.

Breaking Benjamin - Dear Agony

and one of their new singles from Dear Agony, "I will not bow"

Wall Street looking better

Wall Street on Friday recorded its first full week of consecutive gains since November 2006 after strength in technology stocks added to this week’s rally.

"Positive economic data, the weak dollar and rising commodity prices pushed stocks higher this week. After Wednesday’s close, Alcoa set a positive tone for the third-quarter earnings season by posting a profit and, on Thursday, leading US retailers reported their first monthly sales gain since September 2008.

Bruce Shalett, founder of the Wynston Hill Capital boutique investment bank, said: “There’s reason to feel cautiously optimistic . The retail data that came out resonated very positively with investors who are hoping upon hope for reasons to believe that the recovery is sustainable.”

So this is good news to hear obviously, hopefully the recovery is indeed sustainable as they said. If this continues maybe the public will be more willing to invest and less inclined to withdraw all of their money from the market. In any event, good stuff. Oh and Apple's stock is still rising, which I suppose isn't that great of a surprise. I remember back a few months ago when it was at $88.00/share, and today it's listed at $190.47. Incredible. If only I had a few thousand dollars back then when it was low.

Anyway, have a nice weekend!

Transformers 3! confirmed

There WILL be a Transformers 3, which is amazing in my opinion. I'm pumped to hear that. It's slated to be released in 2011 so it will be awhile but still.

DMB - Crash Into Me live at Folsom Field, Boulder, CO

Well unless you've been living under a rock for quite some time, you've heard this song. This is a video of the live performance at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado at CU. It's a really good live version, and the song is just amazing, no matter how many times I've heard it. Absolutely an all time favorite song of mine. Enjoy~
