Crisis averted

I just finished downloading this month’s installment of songs from eMusic.  I wound up getting the following albums:

  • Andrew Bird “Armchair Apocrypha”
  • The National “Boxer”
  • Portastatic “Summer of the Shark”
  • Unwed Sailor “The White Ox”

Andrew Bird came on recommendation from a number of people, most recently Liz.  I got The National on recommendation from Adrian.  I’m not a big fan of the guy’s voice, but otherwise, it seems good.  I’m a Portastatic fan from way back and I think “Summer of the Shark” is the only full-length that I didn’t already have, so I remedied that.  Finally, Unwed Sailor is another instrumental rock/post-rock outfit that produces music good for listening to at work.  This is their latest, so I thought I would pick it up.  Maybe, once I get a chance to listen to these carefully, I’ll share my thoughts on them.  Or not.

eMusic suggestions?

My eMusic downloads “refresh” (read: expire) on July 20th.  This means I have about 26 hours to find 40 songs to download or my $10 is wasted.  So, current or former eMusic subscribers, I need your help.  Tell me what I should look into.

New photos

About 2 weeks ago, I got 5 rolls of film developed.  If you’re interested in checking it out, I have the rolls posted on my online gallery.  The new rolls are the last 5 rolls on this page.  (Update: this gallery is now located here.)

Enjoy and feel free to leave me comments, either here or in the gallery itself.

I’ve still got it

Today I downloaded Super Mario Bros. for the Wii Virtual Console.  I played through the entire game (except 4-3 and 4-4: I warped from 4-2 to 5-1) and it took me just over an hour to beat it.  I was surprised by how much I remembered and how quickly it all came back to me.  Maybe I’ll download Super Mario 2 tomorrow and beat it as well.
