1. Tomorrow night I'm jamming with a drummer in Williamsburg. His band's ad cited Radiohead, Weezer, Wilco, The Sea and Cake and Death Cab for Cutie, among others. It'll just be guitar and drums, which should be interesting. I've just got to remember to not get ridikillisly high before we start jamming.

2. I know that there are probably more Red Sox fans than Yankee fans who read my journal, so for you Bostonites, skip ahead to #3. For you Yankee fans, a collective sigh of wonder is in order, I think. 17-3? Starters are 15-0? Yankees lead the league in HRs, BBs AND fewest HRs and BBs allowed? All this without Jeter and yet with a suspect bullpen? The only thing that worries me, at this point, is that getting Jeter and Mo back in the saddle will cause everyone else to loosen up.

3. Kath leaves for Amsterdam on Thursday, to return the following Tuesday. Queens will be a lonely place this weekend.

4. We watched Spirited Away last night, and during the movie we both looked at each other and said that it felt like we were playing a videogame. This is the sort of movie that if I was 8 or 9 years old, I would fall in love with and never forget - sort of the way I still haven't forgotten certain images in The Neverending Story (which surprisingly enough I haven't seen in 10 years, even though it's been on cable a zillion times, so I don't know if it's acutally a good movie or I just remember it fondly). I wouldn't necessarily call Spirited Away a masterpiece or anything, but it was certainly enjoyable and very dream-like. (Dream-ish?)

5. Kath's theater group's website just got re-launched. Behold: 6 Characters.

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    The first sentence of this post was "Finally, some breathing room," and then as I was in the middle of the second sentence I got handed…

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