I had been feeling on top of the world for the last few days; today I have crashed, big time. There are 2 reasons for this, I'm guessing:

1. I walked into work this morning and a TON of work was sitting on my desk, waiting for me, without any instructions as to how to proceed. I hate that.

2. I had great hopes for songwriting last night and came up with nothing. Stereogum had linked to the first "leaked" track off the new soon-to-be-released Secret Machines album, which maybe isn't the best thing they've ever done but it certainly got me jazzed up to start writing. I didn't even have any concrete ideas, I just wanted to start writing a Secret Machines song and just let it morph into something else. All I ended up with was an long crescendo of an oscillating E chord with thunderous distortion.

In happier news, it's my mom's birthday today. Happy birthday, Mom! I'll call you when I get above water here.
