Rediscovering old favorites…

… is fun. Yesterday I listened to Man, or Astroman? – one of my favorite bands from my high school years. Right now I’m listening to Superchunk, which was also a high school favorite.

Speaking of songs from high school, I was shocked the other day to hear a song from the 6ths as the background for a TV commercial. The song (“Here in my heart” from Wasps’ Nests) is from an obscure album (it’s not available from the iTunes store) by an obscure “artist” – actually a side project (among many) of Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields fame. Anyway, it came out in 1995, right in the heart of my high school years. Ah, the memories.

And, yes, I am deliberately using ellipses in the title/beginning of all of today’s posts.

Remembering to send in rebates…

… is a pain. Fortunately, I just remembered about the rebate on the power supply I bought about 2 weeks ago. I filled out the form and got all the stuff together. Now, I just need to make a couple of photocopies and I can send it off. Hello $30. Or, perhaps, I should say, “$30, nice to see you again in my wallet.”

Right now…

… I wish I owned Guitar Hero. After a long day at work and my viewing of Air Guitar Nation last weekend, I am primed for some 5-button guitar action.
