Their newest album's their best. Dancing to it at my desk right now. And the cover art is perfect. I must own this image in a large format.

Here's my fave track, but every one is great so far in my listening:

'Performance' tonight: Fuck Rock Band, dude actually knows guitar

I'm going to sing 4 songs tonight at a small open mic in New Jersey.

I know it's a tiny event. And they're all covers, basically, the cute boy who I know is playing guitar and wanted to give me a chance to sing on stage. Because he's nice like that.

I am so excited and nervous right now that I could run my office's computers if given a dynamo to spin neurotically with my feet. Because I am not confident in the songs specifically and in me in general since I haven't sung on stage since I was 15. That was 8 years ago. Hah! This LJ's been around that long as well.

<3 Life is wonderful.

The playlist:
  1. Radiohead - Creep
  2. White Stripes - Apple Blossom
  3. Tears for Fears - Mad World
  4. Blondie - Heart of Glass
So apparently these all sound good on acoustic. He's already memorized them. I kinda half know the words to all but 1 - I got Apple Blossom down pat. Most scared of Heart of Glass, shit, it's hard to do that one without going flat.

    Tears for Fears

Fuck me for ever having watched this cheezy-ass movie.

But I keep on thinking of these lines.

Daniel: Oh, well, okay... right. Well, I mean, I'm a little relieved.
Sam: Why?
Daniel: Well, because I thought it would be something worse.
Sam: [incredulous] Worse than the total agony of being in love?
Daniel: Oh. No, you're right. Yeah, total agony.

Stop SOPA, save online free speech, save web businesses

Sorry to scream at you, guys, but this is a legitimately awful bill that might pass, and you taking 3 minutes to call right now might make a difference.

As a web developer/designer, it would interrupt my career (it makes sites liable for the content their USERS post - a nerdy distinction that could ruin my industry.)

As a believer in free speech, its giving the federal government rights to police the Internet on any supposed piracy charges, disgusts me on a personal level.

Have you ever

met someone who is so incredibly compassionate and nice, that it breaks your heart just knowing that they somehow continue to exist in this harsh world?

*I realise I already posted something almost identical to this. So here, a Youtube video of my Listening To music to make this repeat post worthwhile.

    David Bowie - Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud

Is a love of Stuff disgusting or endearing?

Material lust looks unpleasant to a poor person, an environmentalist or an anti-capitalist; but adopting and caring for forgotten ephemera in the gigantic mound of throwaway shit that we made as our human world, seems natural, almost, like the only thing a pattern-seeking hairless ape can do in the face of this plastic surge.

Getting to know nice people,

after spending too much time around assholes, is so refreshing.

It's like eating real,fresh food for the first time after being trapped in space with astronaut food for years.

Or sure, I'll use the typical phrase, a breath of fresh air.
