2. Goddamn you, Sigur Ros. A million years ago (really, January-February 2000) I had a really bad breakup with a girl (the one before Kath, actually) and I listened to Sigur Ros' "Svefn-G-Englar" which pretty much sounded exactly like what I felt like and I listened to it about five hundred more times before I Just. Could. Not. Take. It. Anymore. I put that album away and tried to forget about them. Didn't buy (). With the advent of iPods it was a matter of time before Sigur Ros would appear on shuffle, and eventually I was able to get into them again. Bought Takk last year, loved most of it. So last night I had my iTunes on shuffle and I was working on lyric ideas and then "Glosoli" came on, and goddammit, it's doing it to me again. The difference this time, though, I'm not breaking up with anybody and nothing terrible is happening - I'm just hearing that song in my head and I feel like my heart is breaking.
3. As mentioned previously I'm rereading Microserfs again. Holy shit, what a brilliant book. Again. Here's the reason why I bring it up - I can't help but think that "Oop!" is actually a distant cousin of the forthcoming Spore.
4. One week until Oblivion.
5. No, I have not forgotten about the LJ-only fantasy baseball league; I've just been swamped at work and haven't had time to set it up. (If one of you guys wants to do it, though, please feel free.)
