Autumn Sweater

Welsh singer-songwriter Matthew Jay has died. I remember him getting a goodly amount of press a few years ago when he performed at NXNE, and saw him opening for Doves in July 2001. He’d disappeared from the radar recently, but had a lot of potential. 24 years old is far too young. Sympathies to his friends and family.

Tipping Habits Of The Rich And Famous. Riotous stuff.

Someone talk to me about The Wrens. I have yet to read a non-gushing review of The Meadowlands. I suspect the album will be a little tough to track down hereabouts – will I regret not doing so?

Rehearsals for our set at the Joy Division vs New Order tribute night next Friday at Sneaky Dee’s got underway last night. It’s great fun deconstructing these songs and rebuilding them from the ground up. There’s a really interesting lineup of bands participating in this show, I’ll post more specifics when I get them.

Autumn has struck quickly and fiercely. The bike ride to work has gotten a helluva lot brisker – we’ve already broken out the heavy shirt, coat and gloves. Contemplating something to cover the ears. I am hoping to be able to keep riding to work through October, but that will probably require a more sweater-heavy wardrobe.

    Bah, just ride faster and harder! Get that circulation going!

    I rode in today wearing a thin long-sleeve jersey and a pair of bike shorts. Luckily the wind was on the strong side, so I didn’t get too warm.

    If the weather gets closer to zero, I might consider wearing my tights.

    I am ubermensche! Fear my body heat!

    I always thought the ubermensch would be taller.

    What, and waste all that energy moving around a larger body mass, pumping blood down longer veins, and firing brain pulses down longer nerves? Clearly you are not familiar with the ways of the ubermensch.

    I was part of that goodly amount of press. I really like his debut (and now only) album. So sad…
