Ancient Melodies Of The Future
Now that 2003 has been analyzed, poked and prodded a-plenty, it’s time to look ahead to 2004 and the riches it will bring. Consider this a sneak-peek look at the good bets to make next year’s list. Expect new releases from:
The Mountain Goats / We Shall All Be Healed (Feb 3)
Sarah Harmer / All Of Our Names (Mar 9)
Six By Seven / Down Here On The Ground (Mar)
The Magnetic Fields (Apr)
American Music Club / You Better Watch What You Say (May)
The New Year (Spring)
Spoon / The Beast And Dragon Are Adored (Spring)
Built To Spill
Tiny Mix Tapes has their year-end list up, and they TOTALLY stole my graphic treatment. I got my list up first, therefore they are the copiers. For shame! And they’ve also redesigned, but their stylesheet doesn’t work in Netscape anymore. Someone’ll be getting a sternly worded letter about that, believe you me. Hey Wyatt – what’s your email? I want to send you a sternly worded letter.
Thanks to Kazaa, I’m now watching season two of Six Feet Under. Nuts to waiting for the DVDs. Nuts, I say!
My Las Vegas trip has been shifted ahead a half week, so I think I will be able to go to the Mark Kozelek show on the 30th. Huzzah.
It was a good weekend for holiday-type get-togethers. After the company Christmas party Friday, I spent Saturday catching up with a gaggle of university friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen since, well, last Christmas. And to top things off, I finally got an email back from Ross who had been incommunicado in Toledo since his wedding in May. It seems that “Get in touch, you chimp,” is an effective guilting device. So we’re exhausted but feeling pretty good.
