What music is everyone listening to these days? I've had an itunes gift card and I don't know what to spend it on. I haven't bought much music lately except for the new radio head album.

This was seriously my fortune at dinner.

"Here we go. Low fat, whole wheat green tea."

I'm still not sure what to make of this.

Yesterday I got tickets to see Feist in Tulsa in April. I'm more excited about this concert than I've been about a show in quite some time. I usually if I get to see bands I really like at all it is after they have already moved on from the material I really liked (e.g. seeing the Red Hot Chilli Peppers now is just now that they are old and mellow is just not like seeing them on tour for Mothers Milk, or Blood Sugar Sex Magic would have been) so its rare to hear a lot of the songs I want to hear. The Reminder is one of my favorite albums of the past couple or years so, Woot!

It still amazes me what people will do.

The ice is gone, but the casualties are still pilling up. Every day I see another tree, now scattered in a rough pile of wood by the curb, waiting for someone to haul it off to be fire wood, or to fill some hole in the land. Cedars fresh cedar heart a darked to crimson its freshly cut edge still oozing sweet smelling sap. Oaks, pines all sort of beautiful woods. Four foot diameter sections of some old tree I couldn't identify. Some of it is just too beautiful to waste. Someone should do something with it, and since no one else really seems to be I've been gathering it up and stowing it away in the garage. In months or maybe years when it is cured and ready maybe it will become sculpture. I haven't sculpted anything in years, and never really carved much wood, but with luck and the right tools maybe something will turn out. In any case it seems like an ideal project for the new year. So one of my resolutions for this year is going to be to have a finished piece done by Jan 1 next year.

At this point I have a bit more 24 hours to make up my mind what my resolutions should be. The list is getting a bit long, but one resolution doesn't seem to be enough this year, and I won't be satisfied unless I keep all of them.

I need a new book to read. I just finished the Martian Chronicles, and World War Z, so I've had a good dose of sci-fi, and I'm ready for a change of pace. Any suggestions?

After last night I can highly recommend The Machinist. Christian Bale as a 120lb insomniac who hasn't slept in a year is spooky to begin with, but if you can't sleep at 4:00 am from fever, and all the coffee you drank to make it through work, and it starts to seem like you are watching an honest to god animated corpse walking around and saying Mr. Bale's lines.

One of the few perks of my new job is that I can listen to music while I work. I need some good heavy metal to listen to at work. I have plenty of other good stuff I listen to on the job, but sometimes you just need to put up a curtain of noise between you and the world, and I find metal is the way to go. I've been enjoying Opeth lately. They have a nice balance going between complex melodic and rythmic elements on one hand, and raw power and incomprehensible lyrics on the other. So, any suggestions?

I hate fall. The first cold day always seems to come suddenly. It's never too cold, but the drop in temperature always chills my blood uncomfortably after so many hot summer days, and reminds me that winter will be here before too long. I hate winter. No, I don't really hate winter. I just hate being cold. It happens to me far to easily. Sometimes I wish I lived in a sun scorched desert where the only cool time was after the sun when down each night.
