GOOD: Progress is being made with a new song. The previous incarnation, which I had recorded about 2 weeks ago, was raw and aggressive; the new incarnation takes a more atmospheric approach, with Death Cab guitar arrangements and a subdued, pulsing groove. It has a similar feel to Morrissey's "Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself," which I'm certainly not opposed to.

BAD: My computer has a new, inexplicable problem. Last night I checked my e-mail at around 11:30, finished at 11:35, and then went back to music. When I attempted to check it at 2am, right before I went to bed, I got a wierd error message; something about "TraycInt" affecting "KERNEL[something].DLL", and if it keeps happening I should restart my computer. Which I did, 3 times, and the same thing kept happening. Checked my modem twice, no problems. This morning I ran Scandisk to see if there were any errors; it apparently kept restarting itself as Windows was also writing information to the C Drive, even though I had no applications running. It hadn't finished when I left my apartment.

GOOD: I got to sleep in this morning. Zach Galifankis has a Comedy Central show on at 8:30 tonight, which jdixon had the foresight to set up the VCR for. jongre apparently had a successful interview with my temp agency. Baseball season is coming soon. The weather today is pretty nice, considering it's February. It's Friday, baby.

BAD: Jaw still hurts. My temp assignment for 3/11-3/15 involves working 8-6 as a "help desk coordinator" - the law firm I work for is moving to new offices, and being that "I've been here for a while" and "know how the company works", I get to be the "point man" for people's questions. I don't know jack about how this company works; if 200 people work in this office, I maybe remember 5 of their names. No money. No glasses.

GOOD: I had to leave this on a good note, because I'm in a pretty good mood. I can't wait to get started on new tunes.

1. Go here.

1. Click on the keyboard that appears on your monitor until the ENTER CODE box appears.

3. Enter "reload".

4. Clear the next couple of hours from your schedule because a ton of new interviews, QuickTime VRs, stills, videos and downloads from The Matrix Reloaded just went online today. And soon there will be a lot more.
