As much as I feel compelled to write today, I can't help but also feel that I have nothing substantive to write about. That said, here goes nothing:

1. This weekend, Kath and I are going upstate to (a) hang out with my mom and (b) possibly get a puppy. While (a) is certainly nice and all, it's (b) that has really gotten us all in a tizzy. We've been debating for a while about when to get one, if we should wait until after (i) Kath's sister's wedding, (ii) Thanksgiving, (iii) the entire holiday season, etc.; we can't wait any longer. We have strict criteria, though, so it's entirely possible that we won't come home with anything. But soon - SOON - lil' Duncan (or)(/and?) Lola will be ours.

2. Tonight: long overdue songwriting session/hang with David.

3. Glad to see that, for the most part, the country is starting to come to its senses, what with all the Democratic victories yesterday. It's true that NYC still has a Republican mayor, but honestly - Bloomie hasn't been nearly as terrible as Rudy was, and I can't in all seriousness imagine Ferrer as a competent mayor. Whatevs. The governor wins in NJ and VA are huge, the Intelligent Design school board was swept out of office, the Ah-nuld propositions got destroyed, and Maine struck down an anti-gay bit of legislation. Of course, if you check Drudge, that Maine tidbit is missing and instead replaced with Texas's passing of an anti-gay-marraige bill (which, as DailyKos notes, might end up actually invalidating ALL marraige), but, then again, if you're using Drudge as your source of news, you're an idiot. Did this paragraph contain enough commas?

4a. Chuck Klosterman writes for ESPN now. I guess the Hunter S. Thompson memorial "I'm not a sports writer but I'll gladly accept the paycheck" slot has been filled.

4b. Lewis Black will do a feature on The Weather Channel. I guess I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

5. This much cuteness will cause you physical pain.

  • 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.…

    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":…
