Episode Info: I quit smoking recently. I made my last cigarette last three days. It tasted like shit. I'm not really telling you this for any particular reason except to say that, like, the same fucking day I decided I'm just done with cigarettes, I hear this band on bandcamp called "Diet Cig" and now not only do I have their super fun songs stuck in my head; but, I wake up in the morning with their name sliding across my mind like the scroll at the bottom of a newscast. It's driving me nuts; but, I don't mind. I think this means that The Secret is real or some shit. I think I manifested this encounter through my focus on healthy decision-making and it's a stupid fucking final test or some other dumb dramatic thing that's probably not even real. Now, if I could only manifest a super awesome girlfriend, I'd be set. I've got sweet tunes, clear lungs, and even a nice exercise routine; but, whenever I try to use The Secret to get a girl, I just imagine Oprah... and she's taken. Diet Cig is an awesome poppy punky duo from New Paltz; their songs are catchy; their lyrics are interesting; their beats have me bobbin' my head; and, I just love them.  When Alex, the lead singer/guitarist, yells out, "... I just wanna dance!" I think, "Me too, Alex, me too," and, my butt starts to wiggle a little. Luckily, Noah, the drummer, provides me with a steady beat that keeps my hip in its socket. Otherwise, this would be a mess... a crumpled blob of human on the floor, twitching in 4/4. I read some reviews that tried to be real poetic about it but I can't do all that; I can just say that you should go to their bandcamp page and pick up their recordings, which come in all sorts of forms like digital, vinyl, cassette, etc. (that might be it and there might not be much etc.) Like all the bands I feature on this podcast, this is something that will last forever; it's not just a splash in the pan... or a flash even...  It will endure. Check out Diet Cig on Bandcamp!
