I finally got Ashes Grammar today. My new canadian friend found it for me in about two seconds (after I've just spent the last month searching). I am seriously impressed. There is a nice kind of comfort in listening to something for the first time, letting the music just wash over you and sink in. That is a really nice thing. But there is something profoundly thrilling about getting to know an album. Nothing ever sounds the same as the first time you listen to it, and it's interesting to see how that changes as you connect with that album, and to note how the album becomes a part of you the more you connect to it.

I can't wait to get to know Ashes Grammar. I know we just met, but I'm already dreaming of our wedding day.

I know this music stuff is boring to most people, but that's why I'm posting it here. No one reads this anymore, and I have no where else to vent my excitement. I need nerdier friends.

I have only one thing to say right now.

I am completely in love with Why?'s Eskimo Snow. I was first introduced to this band from the song "Canada" which is themselves and why? and which is a really great song, but not as good as Eskimo Snow. I haven't listened to their older stuff yet, and I don't know if I want to. They said of this album "This record is really the least hip-hop out of anything I've ever been involved with." That scares me away a little bit. I've never been a fan of hip hop, save Dead Prez. I didn't even like Subtle which was so raved about on the internet.

But Eskimo Snow is not even tangentially hip hop. Eskimo Snow is the perfect indie record. There is a balance between pretty, slow songs with flowery words and songs that I could dance to with little difficulty. There's funny lyrics like in Against Me, "Will I gain weight in later life? And when will someone swing a scythe against me?" Who but Why? could sing about their deepest, darkest fears so lightheartedly?

Anyway, I'm not trying to write a review about this album, I just wanted to share with the whole nobody reading this.

Also, a kid I barely know asked me if I like black dice today. I told him that they were like the worst hang over experienced aurally and that my ears wanted to puke when I listened to it.

My stomach is in knots tonight. Tomorrow I'll be hitchhiking to boulder, and from there, heading west. My backpack is light, but my heart is heavy. I feel very stupid, but oh so free. And that's all that matters. If I die on the road, I want you to know I love you.

I'm nervous but not afraid.

I want to eat all the snow that is falling.

This seems like an appropriate place to vent this...

I'm pretty sure I dislike every single person ever.

These are my top six:

1. Sarah Palin
2. Sarah Palin's daughter
3. My brother
4. everyone who comments at reddit, then goes other places on internet to brag that reddit is better
5. People that talk about going "green"
6. Pat from Achewood

It just feels like every person that is alive is also annoying. I have felt like this ever since I stopped smoking weed.

8/17/08 12:48 pm - I recently watched star wars for the first time...

I think I like Dune more than Star Wars. I like Lord of the Rings more than any of them.

As a side note, do you guys think its possible that dark matter is composed of clusters of tetraneutrons? The unexplained-of-yet mass seems to make sense. I would like to know if and why this is impossible.
