My boss is such an ass, he's making me call people on his shitlist to bitch them out about mistakes that he made.
Wish I had brought some Beatles CDs to work. Really in the mood to hear "Abbey Road". TSAC will do for now.
I remember very distinctly the first time I ever heard TSAC. My friend Rey put on the song "Jacking the Ball" without telling me what it was. I was floored. It was so simple and unpretentious, even though Rey had kinda prepared me for an indie-rock-Chicago-hipper-than-thou sort of vibe. Soon after, I was at my friend John's apartment, incredibly high, and he played me "Nassau" and "The Biz". I freaked out. I ran down to Other Music and bought everything I could get my hands on; I don't think "The Fawn" had come out yet. I spent the better part of the rest of the year listening almost exclusively to TSAC records, so much so that whenever I sat down to write music, I'd get frustrated because it wasn't sounding as pleasing. Drove me crazy. I ended up forcing myself to not listen to them for 6 months or so. I've since gotten out of that particular block - now I'm just in a general, unmotivated block.
Which has been getting on my nerves a bit, too, and I know I've mentioned the block and my annoyance with it in pretty much every entry... I mean, aside from the fact that I spent nearly $2K on recording equipment a few months back, and about $100 to get the stuff I needed to fix it specially shipped from the manufacturer, and now it's all collecting dust in my room - recently I find that I'll pick up a guitar and just not want to play anything.
Shit. Gotta go deal w/ some emergency here.
