1. First of all, I have to extend ecstatic congratulations to wienerschnitzel, who got engaged over the weekend. This is stupendous news. He's been one of my best friends since 7th grade and I'm thrilled that he's making the leap.

2. David and I (well, David mostly) finished the artwork for the EP; I think it turned out rather nicely. Also, I've got a crazy project; I'm going to teach myself Flash and start working on the website redesign for the EP launch. Our friend Tim took some cool photos during the recording session and made a cool composite image, which I'm going to screw around with. Obviously, you'll be hearing about it when it's done. I'm excited to learn Flash - my knowledge of HTML doesn't extend much beyond knowing how to make links open in new windows, but beyond that I'd finally like to be able to actually make the stuff that I imagine.

3. Kath bought an iPod this weekend. While it's a tedious process, my favorite part about owning an iPod was the process of putting all my CDs on it; I realized that I had forgotten about a lot of great music. This sensation is someteims regained when a long-lost favorite song suddenly appears during a shuffle (like on Friday, when Morrissey's "Late Night, Maudlin Street" came on during the ride home - I was obsessed with that song in high school but hadn't listened to it in at least 6 years, and I got all nostalgic while simultaneously contemplating ways to cover it). I remember Kath thinking I was crazy when I was holed up in my office and only emerging for 20 second intervals while a CD was being ripped, but now she's in the middle of that process herself.

4. The preparation for last Tuesday's procedure required sitting on a toilet for about 8 hours, and as a result my back is totally fucked up. What's REALLY unfortunate is that it only really hurts when I'm lying down - on my super kick-ass Swedish foam mattress. As soon as I'm up on my feet, it fades rather quickly, but for the past week I've been waking up at 3 in the morning, practically unable to move. Very frustrating. Just once, I'd like to go through one 24-hour period with no pain, anywhere. This "getting old" shit is getting out of hand.

5. Traded in a few games over the weekend and, among other things, picked up Brothers In Arms: Road to Hill 30. I'm very, very grateful that I was not in World War II, is all I can say.

  • Farewell, LJ

    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.…

  • Catching up

    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…

  • (no subject)

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