Contemplating suicide or a graduate degree...

The world gives, the world takes away. I just shit the bed on an exam, but I did find a missing floppy disk (not necessarily a fair trade in my mind). Take last night as another example: I may have missed Joe Pernice on "Gilmore Girls" (although I did see Yo La Tengo and the Moore-Gordon family), but there was a second "Scrubs" episode. So I got that.

And up in heaven you're a shoe-in if you open up your heart to me...

"City-dwelling snobbery" be damned, I crossed the river for the Geoff Farina show at Iota last night. (I even switched trains at Metro Center.) Not many other people did; hell, not many people even crossed the street. And while I feel bad that Drew and Farina (it feels more appropriate to use the last name) had to play to a mostly empty room, goddamn if it didn't one of the better shows I've seen in a while. Everybody was absolutely quiet, and it was like being in someone's basement. Great times. Farina was all over the map with his set list, doing covers of some old songs, some Secret Stars, some Karate, and some new stuff. The only drawback to the night was trying not to stare at Ian MacKaye and for some reason worrying that he'd find out I did part of my Corporate Law outline while listening to End Hits. You can listen to Drew's stuff over on the left in my links.

And my one-word review of the Rolling Rocks I had: refreshing.

I'll bet you never smoked. I dream of glamourizing cigarettes...

Thank You For Smoking: great movie except for the unforgivable lack of one of my top-ten all-time mix tape jawns (do the kids still say this? Jawn?), Scarce's "Glamourizing Cigarettes". It's like the song was written for the movie, and still... no love. Disappointing.

Don't it blow your mind...?

I guess there are times when MySpace doesn't creep me out, such as when Golden Smog streams new songs off of their page.

Handjobs for the holidays...

How about this for a show? Belle and Sebastian, Broken Social Scene, and Ted Leo, all for the price of one ticket. I'd be there in a heartbeat, but I don't go to the suburbs. I just don't.
