Now I'm not one to sit and spin because living well's the best revenge

I apologize for the long absence. There was work to be done and cats that just had to sit on my lap. I know, I know, I'm just spread too thin. Also, my laptop crapped out and for some reason I now find it impossible to actually sit at a desktop computer and work (unless I'm actually at work).

I actually think the biggest reason for not writing is that I'm starting to believe it's actually 1994 and no one had heard of blogs in 1994. Why 1994? Well, in the last couple of weeks I've purchased new albums by R.E.M. and Counting Crows. Meanwhile, Jeff has ordered the new James album and can't wait for the new release from Portishead. It's like high school (or for Jeff, college) all over again!

Want some short reviews on my new purchases? I knew you did!

R.E.M. - Really good but I'm sure it's great. I think people are just happy that they no longer suck. I'll give it a few more listens before a final verdict, though.

Counting Crows - I miss old drugged up and crazy Adam Duritz. He's doing all these interviews about how calm he is these days and that never makes good music. I want more emotion and less adult alternative easy listening.

Billy Bragg - Oh yes, he has a new album, too. The first word that comes to mind is overproduced. But I am also missing young and crazy Billy. He's sounding awful middle aged these days.

O.K., so I'm back on the bus. Photos, music and all those things that you can get on the interweb in 2008 are soon to follow.

I totally agree with you about Adam Duritz. In addition to not being drugged up (boring!) I think he is also starting to sleep at night, too (no hallucinations = boring!).

Speaking of music that reminds you of 1994, our favorite guitarist Jon Hill (from Red Dye #5 fame) looked me up on MySpace today! Since your MySpace page is lame I sent him to this page. Oh, and he is cavorting with Madaski, too...lol
