2. I sorta went bananas yesterday; I bought the Lost DVD, the new Paul McCarntey album, and then when we got home from the wedding party I downloaded the new Sigur Ros and the Iron & Wine / Calexico EP. I'm just finishing up the McCartney album right now (there's a hidden instrumental track at the end, which is totally awesome and very surprising) and I gotta say, it's pretty freakin' good. It's not a jaw-dropper, but it's definitely a grower, and I really really appreciate how Nigel Godrich managed to rein in Paul's cheeseball tendencies without sacrificing his sense of whimsy. Imagine Beck's "Sea Change" without all the reverb and you'll get an idea of what this record sounds like - even in terms of mood, as there really aren't any balls-out rockers here.
2a. By the way, I'm experimenting with this Amazon.com Associates program; if you click on the links in the preceding paragraph, and you happen to decide to buy any of those things, I get $0.00001, or something like that.
3. I gotta say - I don't know if it's because I'm doing the meditation, or the fact that I've been eating really healthy, but today's the 2nd day in a row that my stomach isn't totally killing me.
4. Just put on the new Sigur Ros... holy fucking shit.
5. Should there be an iPod war today?
