1. Downloaded the new Lilys album last night. It's hard to know what to expect out of a Lilys record; the early stuff is straight out of My Bloody Valentine, and the middle stuff is straight out of the Kinks. This new album is both in-between that stuff and yet all-encompassing. It's not as brilliant as I want it to be, yet, but it's certainly not as half-baked as "PreCollections" felt. Anyway. I think I'm the only one around here who even knows who the Lilys are; that I adore them is why I make special mention of it here.

2. Interesting weekend shaping up, even though I'm probably not going to leaving Queens; at some point (probably Saturday) David and I are going to have an acoustic rehearsal for some forthcoming Good Evening Jr. shows, and then on Sunday my high school bandmates are coming over for an acoustic songwriting session. We'd jammed together a few times over the last 2 years or so but we never actually had anything to work on, and so while we still have an uncanny chemistry, it's just not cost effective to book studio time when there's nothing to be done. So: Sunday's session is simply a way of seeing if we can conjure anything worth pursuing. I'd like to think so, even though I'm still somewhat creatively barren at the moment.

Man. There used to be a time when I wouldn't ever settle without getting up to #5. I just don't have it this morning, unfortch.
