1. I downloaded Band of Horses' "Everything All The Time" last night and it's really quite awesome. The singer might as well be the guy from the Shins, but the band has a much wider texture palette and the songs are, for the most part, quite fantastic. It's a great album to usher in Spring.

2. I was nervous about last night's live draft in the LJ-only fantasy baseball league; as it turns out, it was totally awesome and I'm forever sold on the format. In the past, I did some very minor pre-ranking adjustments and just hoped for the best; last night, I had a much better idea of where I wanted to go - and it was really quite fun having to make adjustments based on what other people were doing. Next year I'll make sure I'm a bit more prepared, but all in all I'm actually OK with my team. I've got no speed, and I've got 2 super-young starting pitchers, but I like my offense.

3. The Good Evening show went pretty well on Monday, aside from some major technical difficulties. I'm pretty much done with Sin-E, at this point - the sound on the stage is absolutely dreadful. We had zero turnout but there were a lot of people in the audience while we were performing, which was nice - we were also asked to do an interview after the show by a film crew who were there for a different act, which was wierd but also fun. We also might be playing Bridgeport, CT in May, and if we're going that far out of our way we'll try to get something in Boston, too, since most of you live there, anyway.

4. Coming down with Kath's cold, which is not awesome.

Thought I had enough for 5. Maybe later.

    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.…
