In honor of Rose, who finally blogged.

April 4, 2008

The songs I listened to on my morning commute: a mix between the new Submarines album, Honeysuckle Weeks, Challengers, by The New Pornographers, and Hold On Now, Youngster…, by Los Campesinos!.  (I needed a dance party in my ears, the weather is awful.)  Honeysuckle Weeks leaked about a week ago, right around the time I received the new Blondfire album from CDBaby.  Sad to say, I’ve been neglecting Blondfire ever since.   But Honeysuckle Weeks is just so good – and I’ve been waiting for new Submarines almost as long as I’ve been waiting for new Antlerand (and we all know that’s never going to happen.)

I’ve noticed that ever since I got my iPod touch, I’ve been listening to more complete albums, rather than creating playlists, which is something I used to put enormous amounts of time into.  It’s just easier to turn the iPod on its side, flick through the album art, and pick a CD.  Playlists?  Far too much work.  I’ll have to start doing it again, though.  There’s nothing like listening to a stream of songs, and never having to hit ‘next’.

There isn’t much of a point to this post, other than ‘This is the music I listened to today’, and ‘Oh, I don’t make playlists anymore’, so I’ll continue with not having a point, and end this post with ‘Things people have said about this blog’.

Leah: oh, i’m addicted to your bloghilarious 

Jeff: YOU? have a blog?  its not creepy and introspective is it?

Francesca: This is why I love your blog.  It’s the one shiny constant in a world full of chaos

It’s inspiring, isn’t it?  I thought so.  In addition, I’ve also inspired two people to try Old Bay.  I’m telling you, you should trust my taste in things.  You can’t lose.  And with that, I leave you all for a week.  See you next Sunday, post-Office return, but pre-Lost.  I just can’t win.

    If you rode your bike to work, you wouldn’t need a playlist for your commute.

    You would really get to know bad weather instead of being like “oh, the weather is bad”, and you could truly appreciate what a magnificent thing it is when the weather is nice.

    Uh — we’re not living together if you turn into one of those bike-riding freaks.

    1. The operative words here being, “your bike”. Implying that I own one. Which I don’t.
    2. I doubt that will ever happen. We’re all good.

    Wait… if I buy Step a bike you won’t want her…

    hmmm…

  5. step Says:

    If you buy me a bike, I’ll take it. I will never turn down anythg free. Sorry, Francesca.

    Hmm, I do have to go get mine tuned up.
