These Wooden Ideas
In reviewing my referrer logs, it seems that the bulk of my hits these days come from people looking for mp3s of the new Radiohead album. Sorry folks, don’t have none. But here’s a link to a fellow who does have them. I haven’t heard any of it – I’ve got this weird thing about waiting till the day of release to buy and hear an eagerly anticipated album. But you go on ahead and enjoy, I don’t mind. I’ll catch up in June. And don’t say I never do anything for you.
My Morning Jacket are coming to the Horseshoe on May 6. This is a show that would normally appeal to me, but the timing stinks. I’ve got a show on Friday night, then Monday night. Tuesday would be a little too much to handle. To say nothing of the fact that it’s expensive ($15). I had been really keen to see them when they opened for Doves last year, but couldn’t get around to going. And now I will probably miss them again. Which is a shame because I hear terrific things about their live show. Alas.
And speaking of shows, tonight I have the option of seeing either Kathleen Edwards at the Horseshoe or Ted Leo and the Pharmacists at the Rivoli. Sadly, I will probably go to neither cause… well, no one else has expressed an interest and I don’t think I’ll be in ‘standing around in a bar on a Wednesday night alone’ sorta mood today. But I’m not ruling out any 11th hour change of mind. Anyone want to provide me some compelling arguments? Note that you’re up against a new episode of The West Wing tonight – some stiff competition, to be sure.
Brad is getting me a copy of the I Am Trying to Break Your Heart DVD from his work with his employee discount. It’s handy to know people who know people. I’m very excited about it – but I will have to figure out how to capture the audio off the DVD in a way to burn a CD from it.
Go read today’s Get Fuzzy. It’s great.
