Well hello, it's me again

So let me get this straight. I've been ambivalent and uninspired to write lately, and in the past few months: Boards of Canada finally announced a new album...Neutral Milk Hotel announced they're going out on a reunion tour....Avey Tare from Animal Collective announced some weird sideproject...My Bloody Valentine released a new album finally....there's a new borderline excellent record by Thee Oh Sees out. This is all some kind of weird joke or dream, right?

Next thing you'll tell me there's a new album by Blackout Beach, from my beloved Carey Mercer, which somehow came out without my knowledge, right? Ha ha, real funny.

Oh, wait....that did happen, too.


It's like music wants me to care again or something.

Anyway, enough clowning. I'm stuck in Toledo for another year so I'm going to get back in the saddle soon, because I have nothing better to do. Got some catching up to do and some changes to make around here, that's for durn sure.

Despite suspending my blog due to lack of enthusiasm, so far this has been a very good year in music. The new MBV is my favorite as I listened to it non-stop days after it came out. I also love the new Bowie, the Knife, How to Destroy Angels, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Deerhunter, Kavinsky, and Depeche Mode. I'm eagerly awaiting the new Daft Punk at the moment.

Always good to hear from you. It's stuff like this that keeps me going on the bad days when I feel like I'm wasting my time, yelling in the wilderness.
