Seafood, squid: Okay, who likes this stuff? Me, no. Have I mentioned that Wei Hong is now online?
TV II, Euro 2008: I’m glad, as a soccer fan, that every match of Euro 2008 was available via the ESPN family of networks. And, yet, I have to feel as if I lost some time during June. Time that could’ve been spent burning candles and sage for a Germany victory. Sigh. All that time invested. For second place. Mmm. Rrr.
Task, moving: Remind me not to go this route again soon. Those legitimately needing my new digits, just lemme know.
Record, B.J. Ward, “Vocal Ease“: Found this assumed gem at Waxidermy, in an item that includes a clip of the title track. Would spend a couple bucks on this, were an actual vinyl copy to come into my orbit. Have I mentioned that my birthday is coming up?
Out, Belz: Win some, lose some.
Online, books: Great piece on the changing nature of book publishing, book buying, book consumption. From “On the Media.” Every class I have at Webster will hear this one.
Candy bar, Payday Chocolatey Avalanche: Damn, what a delicious sweet treat.
Outsider artist, Skeleton Krewe: A few months back, I jotted down some fan notes of the photos of Skeleton Krewe, a New Orleans flickr photographer, who seems to capture that town as well as anyone could. Noticed, today, that he’s also a painter, in a distinctly outsider art style. Digging these works. Need to save some pennies.
Album, Japancakes, “Loveless”: The note-by-note recreation of the MBV classic. You need this album, really.
Bicycle, Raleigh One Way: It appears that someone’s borrowed my bike and hasn’t returned it. Yeah, I know, “share and share alike.” And, yet, for my next bike, I’d like to keep it all for myself. No unannounced borrowing. A smart person in such matters suggested the one-speed Raleigh One Way as that next bike. Plenty of other bloggers give it up for this ride. So, maybe. Have I mentioned someone stole my bike?
