1. I just wasn't made for these times. I was made for Sweden in the 70's. That's style, baby.

2. I am tired and hungover, but it was well worth it. Last night I drank heavily with jongre, dlbags and various others at Sophie's. Got home around 1-ish. Good times.

3. I'm starting to get a little annoyed with the bands I talk to at CraigsList; we exchange e-mails, everything seems to be cool, and then they leave me hanging. For no apparent reason. No explanation, no nothing, just - nothing. Oh well. I must remain ever vigilant.

4. Bought some stuff yesterday: the new Malkmus/Jicks, the old Coldplay, and the Road to Perdition DVD. I'm kinda surprised at how taken I am with Coldplay; their new album has grown on me. And I'll admit that I was a fiend for "Yellow" - I still am, really. As for the Malkmus/Jicks - I sorta want to give it a full review, but I need a couple more spins with it. There's a lot of really beautiful instrumental passages on it - I think it probably has the highest non-vocal/vocal ratio of any SM-related album. Which is sorta wierd, I guess, because as much as I like SM's songwriting, I'm also a fiend for his lyrics and vocal delivery. Ultimately, it's engaging and way more interesting than his previous album.

5. Also traded in 4 old Xbox games; tonight I'll pick up Rayman 3 without having to spend any money at all.

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
