I thought myself lucky

I don't try to pick favorites a lot when it comes to music, mostly because I just can't choose. For me then to say a song is one of my favorites certainly means something. Right now I'm talking about "Saro" by Samamidon. It's one of those that I think I could put on repeat for an hour and not be sick of it.

And in finding the video for that, I ran across the band Pomplamoose. Give them a listen too.

Things I didn't need to buy with my Why? ticket:

A short list of things that I didn't need to purchase when I bought my Why? ticket:
1. "Alphabutt" by Kimya Dawson and friends
2. "Kala" by M.I.A.

Sure I won't regret either of these purchases, but I don't need them right now. Plus, I have a ticket to see Why? in Portland on Saturday, which is like 8 times better than anything. Ever.

So womanly, I have to go kiss her

National Novel Writing Month is soon upon us again. They've already started sending out emails. I might give it a more concerted try this year, having previously signed up and then sluffed off on my writing duties completely each time. That's not going to stop me from signing up again though. And hey, maybe third time's the charm.

On the outskirts

My research advisor has a show on 91.9 WMEB FM Orono, which I decided to listen to for the first time today. He has quite the eclectic taste in music, but it was thanks to this show that I found out about the Gobbledigook contest by Sigur Ros. The most important part of this is that this means there was an instrumental version of the song posted, which, if you haven't heard it yet, you should check it out here: Sigur Ros - Gobbledigook (instrumental)

Forget that it came out of my mouth

Your paradigm kisses

This isn't the same song as the single I talked about yesterday, but it's still great.

In my eagle-shaped mirror

So the new Of Montreal single wasn't released conventionally. I couldn't just by the one vinyl copy. I had to buy three copies, each on a different colored vinyl. And I don't know what to do with the other two copies. The other thing I forgot about Polyvinyl Records is that they put an Airheads candy in each order they ship! Saweet!

There's more than one

Classes have started again. I'm not busy yet, but I will be soon. Even so, I haven't done any knitting in over a week now. I haven't even unpacked the projects I brought with me when I went to visit my parents. Even without seeing them, just knowing that I have unfinished objects makes me feel guilty. In other news though, eMusic treated me well this month. I downloaded "All Is Well" by Samamidon, and it is quite fantastic. eMusic says that if you like Chris Bathgate you'd like this guy.
