News! From the blog that promises you the rare glimpse into the life of some guy.

My stack of to-be-read books currently includes:

  • The Believer Back Issue Bundle Jumble: 10 back issues for $20 (I've read some issues in bits and pieces when I've had time);
  • Thomas Pynchon's Against The Day;
  • John Banville's The Sea; and
  • Elizabeth Green-Musselman's Nervous Conditions.
I'm trying to finish my manuscript for Shoot Out The Lights by the end of the month. We've also entered into my busiest season at work. Consequently, I am tired.

My son's 2nd birthday was this past weekend and it was delightful. We gave him a play kitchen that he adores, some age-appropriate legos, and a Huffy tricycle that refused to stay upright (so back to the store it went). He also got some cowboy boots from his Aunt Jen, a Leapfrog doll from his grandparents, and some wonderful books from some of his friends. Yay!

Oh, yeah. eMusic downloads this month included:
  • Jens Lekman - Oh You're So Silent Jens
  • Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus
  • El-P - High Water
  • Deerhoof - Friend Opportunity
  • a bunch of Deerhoof contributions to compilation albums
  • cLOUDDEAD - Ten
  • cLOUDDEAD - Dead Dogs Two EP
  • The Woggles - Wailin' With The Woggles
  • The Mountain Goats - We Shall All Be Healed
  • Red House Painters - Red House Painters (II)
  • Tortoise - s/t
  • The Spinanes - Imp Years
  • Love Tractor - This Ain't No Outer Space Ship
  • Acid Mothers Temple - Starless and Bible Black Sabbath
  • Rhys Chatham - A Crimson Grail (for 400 guitars)

If you know me and decide to sign up for eMusic, please tell 'em I recommended it to you. I like free downloads!
