1. Late Sunday night I realized that there were a few CDs in my collection that I'd never bothered to convert to iTunes; a few CDs turned into at least 20. How'd that happen? How did I miss all of my Guided By Voices? or Hum's "You'd Prefer an Astronaut"? The Police's double live album AND Led Zeppelin's 3x "How The West Was Won"? Goddamn. Current listening fave is Sebadoh's "The Sebadoh", which is very hit-or-miss but the hits (mostly Barlow's) are pretty goddamned awesome ("Flame", "Colorblind", "Weird").

2. I'll be perfectly honest: I fully expected the Yankees to go up to Fenway this past weekend and win 2 games at the most; NOBODY in their right mind would've figured that they pull out a 5-game sweep. Lemme ask you, Boston peeps - are you guys done? Was this a collossal kick in the balls, or just an aberration? Because even though the Yankees somehow have the 2nd best record in the majors (without Matsui, Sheffield and a reliable bullpen or back end of the rotation), I still don't believe that they'll move past the first round of the playoffs.

3. I've had an idea in the back of my mind for a few years now about a concept album ("concept album" in this case is a shitty term, since this isn't some sort of "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" epic story but rather a collection of songs that hang on a unified lyrical framework); I don't want to say too much about it, but yesterday I had a breakthrough and now I think I know how to start writing it. It's way too soon to call it a Good Evening thing or a solo thing; I just want to write the damned thing and then figure out what I want to do with it. In any event, it's just exciting to finally have a lyrical plan of attack, which is something I've not had in some time, possibly ever.
