after the flood

Apropos of nothing; my iPod is on shuffle and has been playing mostly Traffic, Jethro Tull and Steely Dan, which is hilarious, but just now it put on Talk Talk's "After The Flood", which is absolutely amazing. David lent me two Talk Talk CDs a couple months ago; I ripped them but never really gave them more than just a once-over - they are a pretty wierd band, when all is said and done, and my morning commute doesn't really allow that sort of music to penetrate very far into my brain. This data entry stuff really zones me out, though, and BOY has it made an impression. That groove is just killer....

In other news, I've been hemming and hawing about buying World of Warcraft ever since it came out last November, but certainly now that I've got a PC that can handle it I've been thinking about it more and more - I even think I dreamed about it last night. So it's obvious that I want it. BUT - it's a $15/month fee, which adds up after a while (especially since we're planning on getting a puppy soon); and I do eventually want to start writing music again.
