been a long time since i rapped at ya'
downloaded a torrent of top 25 albums by metacritic review... some good stuff in there:
nick cave, dig, lazarus, dig - he's a cool dude with an interesting life, if wikipedia be true.
Exit by Shugo Tokumaru
randy newman - he's funny, cracks a lot of jokes. is he white or black? i suspect he's a white guy who sounds black
nice to listen to rock music (or "guitar music" as i call it) ... just as a change of pace
i made a little workshop for myself in the garage. just a desk, chair, light, big computer speakers... all the leftover detritus from various lives lived. i like it down there. i always wanted a studio or workshop or detached space of some sort. the still forming rules:
-no books except books that relate to handy-manning, car repair, learning about electricity, etc.
so far i've used it for sewing stuff on my pants, drilling fasteners into a mirror so it can be mounted on a wall, smoking, listening to the aforementioned bands. i also put air in my car tires. one of the 09 resolutions will be to become more handy. it's not a natural inclination and i can't say i enjoy working with tools; but sometimes you develop an appreciation of something through concentrated effort. it helps to buy better tools.
we still don't have a name for our daughter...aka "the bump"
i miss the days when i used to write copious wknd reports. just harder to do these days for a variety of reasons. a lot gets elided cos i don't know who's watching, but also a lot gets left out cos i'm too busy to care about writing it down; or too lazy; or else just less convinced that the record has to be written. less self-important, maybe.
what am i but a mass of hair and teeth in the air... there was some banjo guy who described himself as such, i can never figure out who
saw arial pink play at bottom of the hill... it was fun to be at a show again even though the music wasn't the best. he played his one song that i know, 'the people i know,' i bounced to that. people were moshing, which was ridiculous. conor sez they got into a fight after we left
ah what's the point of doing this if it's half-assed. sorry
