It Takes A Teenage Riot To Get Me Outta' Bed Right Now.

Is this the new fall header?? Perhaps. I'm not sure if I'll dig this in the long-run, as usually too much white just annoys me. I do like the way it turned out though, and I went through my typical five rough drafts to get the lovely banner that hopefully isn't still rendering above. Unless you're a twenty-first century caveman who's just discovered the 56k dial-up connection, you should see me sitting (quite comfortably) above. Does it creep you out? Let me know. Yes, I really do have too much time on my hands.

Well, I have been listening to This Heat's Deceit alot lately; it's quickly become one of my top twenty-five favorite albums of all time, booting Tortoise's eponymous debut out of the line-up. Standards, however, has been climbing the 4.5 star ladder these days, as "Seneca" and "Speakeasy" have become an absolute obsession with me. Other notables are Sonic Youth's No Wave classic, Daydream Nation, as well as Glenn Branca's The Ascension. I've been researching some of the greatest albums of all time, from The Stooges' Fun House to Iggy Pop's The Idiot, as well as The Violent Femmes' and The Modern Lovers' post and proto-punk self-titled classics; what you'll learn is that David Bowie is a god, Iggy is a godfather, and Jonathan Richman wasn't really straight (I could be wrong).

In other news, my head has stopped tormenting me for the time being; perhaps I've discovered the secret to even-tempered living in twenty-oh-eight, or perhaps I've discovered Zoloft. I guess those are either/or/one-in-the-same situations. Take it however you like.
