Gentle, Gentle Music

Volcano Suns 3
Bob Weston plays bass or so I hear.

So, due to some unavoidable circumstances a friend can no longer go to Shellac show on Thursday. If one of you wants to go call me or e-mail if you want the extra ticket.

It's Expected, I'm Gone


Today was the last day on the current project. There's no feeling quite as good as leaving for something new, even if I don't know exactly where I'm going yet.

Dirt Cheap

Cheap Sunglasses

I've never had a pair of sunglasses due to the fact that I've worn prescription glasses most of my life. On Sunday, I finally bought a pair of sunglasses for the first time since getting contact lenses a few years ago. My first pair of dirt cheap, $12 sunglasses.

Got A Face That Could Stop A Clock

Going Away 19

Today: Exploring the comic possibilties of Big Black's cover of Cheap Trick's He's A Whore in the workplace. Our conclusion? Hilarious. My case of short-timer's disease is reaching critical levels.

This Weekend: Snakes, Orioles, a belated birthday and a birthday.

No Comment: "The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) is a militant Islamic group located in the Southern Philippines."

Your Street Vs. Wall Street

Rack and Sky

Old Navy Performance Rock: So, earlier today brought the news that Old Navy was ripping off Oxes, my favorite band to come out of the mean streets of Baltimore. Supposedly there's an Old Navy t-shirt that reproduces an Oxes concert poster. As always, when something like this comes up with Oxes, I kind of take it with a grain of salt due to some of their past pranks. Is it real? We'll see.

Here I Am At The Abyss: The Monorchid has been announced as the final band in the lineup for the Touch and Go 25th Anniversary Concert! Wow, I haven't seen those guys since sometime in 1996 or 1997.

"Congratulations! Your Master of Science program is coming to a close, and we can begin preparing for your graduation. Please submit the attached Application for graduation for the Fall 2006 semester to me by COB Friday, 15 September 2006."
Now those are some magic words. I'm so ready to be done after 3 and a half years of going to school at night.

Gaunt Is The New Black

Going Away 20

Don't bury me, I'm not dead yet! Despite being over yesterday's fever and sore throat, my coworkers thought I was basically undead when I arrived at work today. With a little help from illness, my normal pallor (Irish+English+Ashkenazi=pale) was transformed into that of reanimated zombie. "You look pale, even for you!" Thank you, now hand over your tasty brainssssss.

Said The Doctor To The Whore


Mary Timony is playing on August 17th at Fort Reno, so I may have to head out for that show as well as the Shellac show at the end of the month. From what I've heard of it, her last solo album (Ex Hex) seems to hit a lot of the notes that made Helium's Dirt of Luck one of my favorite albums of the mid90s.
