The TTC was conspiring to keep me from work today. The later-than-usual departure time was my fault, but I can’t be held resonsible when the driver says, “Next stop Union Station, this train is out of service at Union Station”. And then after I trudge the three blocks back up to King and barely squeeze on the streetcar, I decide I need some McCrap breakfast so I ride on down to Bathurst, and get my mcmuffin. Then I hop on a streetcar back the other way, and it would have been Bob’s my uncle if some loony hadn’t decided that driving backwards very slowly down the eastbound lane thus holding up oncoming traffic was a good idea. Turns out it was a TTC maintenance truck…

Pitchfork’s part 2 of the top 100 albums of the 80s is up. As predicted, I do a little better with the head of the class – a big 20 out of 50. Considering that there’s genres represented that I just don’t have interest in, that’s not bad. My net Pitchfork 80s hip-o-meter is a respecatble 0.280. Wouldn’t win any batting titles but I might stay in the starting lineup.
