thank goodness for days off. i have accomplished nothing today, except getting an oil change and taking a much needed mid day nap. why is it that going into a mid day nap you feel ok, but when you wake up hours later you kinda feel like shit or more tired than pre-nap?
in other ponderings, i know this has been the butt of many jokes but what is up with the excessive amounts of advertising logos on both the cars and the drivers who participate in nascar? seriously its pretty obnoxious. i can kinda understand the logos on the cars, but all that shit on their queer little uniforms is a bit much. i actually kind like watching nascar. i find it kinda relaxing and good background noise to accompany whatever else i am up to – which is usually napping and/or on the computer.
i got an email earlier today from big scary monsters records, and enclosed was a brief bio/mp3 for yndi halda. the bio described them as “more joyous than explosions in the sky, less vocal than arcade fire…” which from the song they sent is a perfect description. kudos to their marketing/bio writing department. check em out. they have a new record out entitled enjoy eternal bliss.
so, the new sea and cake, everybody, is out there floating around the internets and let me say that its quite grand. everybody was recorded with brian paulson, one of my favorite producers. its a return to their earlier work, like their debut and the biz – which are a couple of my favorite records. the fawn is also great too, btw.
well, as much as i would love to go on and on about the sea and cake, my programs are coming on shortly and i gots a kid i have to get to bed.
