sounds of the universe. . .

I believe in paying artists, especially musicians, for their work. However, I also think that it is perfectly fair to take the material for a 'test ride' before actually purchasing an album. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'll most definitely buy an actual copy of the album on the 20th when it is officially released, and it'll undoubtedly be a moment of terrible excitement when I finally hold the CD in my sweaty little hands.
But until then..

Lying on a hard wood floor with my headphones on, at 2am Friday night, listening to this, is pretty much as good as it gets.

Tracks 4 and 7 are my favourites so far.
Especially 7, actually.. Wow.

a brain that hurts (i have)

And these are some of the reasons why..
  • I have to decide on what to do for the next two semesters by Friday
  • Accidentally cut my own hair. Yeah, I know.
  • That dream I had the other night
  • Invited la familia over on Sunday and it is expected that I cook
  • Lack of DM concert tickets
  • I have a mortgage(!)
  • My windows are dirty
  • (Too much) licorice flavoured ice cream
  • Discussion about religion with (former best) friend, resulted in me not being invited to her kid's christening (must learn to shut up.)
  • The fact that I'll be leaving in exactly 1 WEEK (aka excitement)

Wow. I thought there would be a lot more reasons but that's it, really. Practically nothing, eh? Oh life, you could be worse.
