Your Life As A Sequel
Check it out – I picked up a solder buddy tonight, perfect for holding delicate little bits and pieces whilst doing electronics work. AND, as you can see, it also makes a fine arch-villain for my unwitting action figures. Tremble before the might of, uh, Claw… Dor… Ator! You can’t fight back, Spider-Man! You don’t have moveable joints!
If you thought my Tuesday nights weren’t TV-saturated enough, Canadian television has decided that it’s the perfect night to run season three of The Sopranos. So I get to sit on my ass from 8 pm till 11:15 pm Tuesdays, soaking in Buffy, 24 and now The Sopranos. Actually, I’m taping the Sopranos. I’m not a freak, you know.
The CD collection got reinforcements tonight. Tift Merritt’s Bramble Rose, Lambchop’s How I Quit Smoking and my copy of Pavement’s Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain won on eBay. Also picked up Bright Eyes tickets for myself and Kyle – happy belated birthday to Kyle, by the way. I’m sorry I forgot yesterday, I suck. But no, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay me for the ticket.
Also got the three back issues of TapeOp I orderd a month ago. Finally, I have the issue where Kevin Shields discusses the making of MBV’s Loveless. I can’t wait – “Yeah, we got really stoned and turned everything up real loud. And recorded sixty tracks of that. Turned the tapes upside down. Recorded another sixty tracks. And then I decided I didn’t like it so we tossed it and smoked up some more”. Genius!
