Very busy today, so just a few quick updates:

1. Ordered my computer this morning; very psyched. A bit more expensive than I'd anticipated, but still, a kick-ass machine.

2. Yankees win. Fuckin' A.

3. Saw Jane's Addiction last night. Also Live and Femi Kuti. We caught the last song of Femi's set - sounded amazing. Live came out and played an unbelieveably boring acoustic set. At this point I was already jonesing pretty hard to get a Yankee score, but I was also excited about seeing JA.

Anyway. My initial impression, after the show, was of disappointment; I thought Perry was too "showy", the sound was dreadful, there were too many naked dancing chicks and not enough sheer rock power. Remember when Bono got into his whole "The Fly" / "Mephisto" personas a few years back? He was being ironic. Perry actually wore a silver lame suit, and meant it. I don't know - I supppose that I have a right to be cynical when I'm paying $70 a ticket. T-shirts were $40 and up. Total bullshit.

However, all that aside, I've had a change of heart. Visually the show was stunning. And the rest of the band played their hearts out. And, truth be told, I did have a good time, and I'm glad I got to see them, even if it was sorta like seeing the Rolling Stones, in that sorta gaudy post-peak rock-star way.

I'm terribly tired this morning and irritated at this stupid bastard that I've been arguing with in a Dreamcast forum. Stupid people suck.

    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.…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
