***October Twenty Eighth Two Thousand and Six***


I've been thinking of getting a tattoo, and this picture is the leading candidate.  

Also - note the following for future reference:

(both images found randomly on the internets...)


Also also - there are a bunch of new photo journal entries, including some recent weekend halloween
festivities featuring my awesomely carved "shrimp on the barby" pumpkin.

::: Musics :::

randoms this time...a retrospective look at Small 23 comng soon...

Ghostface Killah (feat. Ne-Yo) - Back Like That
.  "Fishscale" is the best hip-hop album of the year,
            hands down.  maybe even the bast of the last few years.  Ghostface continues to bang out hits year
            after year while the rest of the Wu-Tang just sits idle.   
James Mercer - Gone For Good.  Taken from this solo in-studio he did at some Oregon radio station
            a year or two back, worth making a dub of if you can find it online.    
The Beach Boys - How She Boogalooed It.  Brian Wilson had totally lost his damn mind at this point,
            and we're all better off for it.
            (edited to add, via my much smarter friend Trott: "that song ("How She Boogalooed It") was written
            by four Beach Boys, none of which were Brian Wilson. That record (Wild Honey) featured lots of
            tracks that had little to do with Brian Wilson, who was really quite far gone by then."  So apparently
            the only thing I had right was Brian Wilson was bonkers. )
The Cuts - Demons.  I've always been "meh" on local rockers The Cuts, but their newest record "From
            Here On Out" really brings the sauce.  
The Radio Dept. - Where Damage Isn't Already Done.  Great, underrated Swedish group that have
            produced 3 great albums of pop songs; this is from their first, but I got nothing but great things
            to say about all of the releases.  





***October Thirteenth Two Thousand and Six***



Welcome to my new desktop photo.


TRIP TO BODIE (Part 2)

Here are a few outside shots in B&W for your perusal.





And one funny photo of Chelsea wearing my hat that is about 4000 sizes too big for her.



In other news, my beloved A's are breaking my heart right now - after sweeping the Twins in the ALDS, they
are down 2 games to the Tigers in the ALCS dropping both of those at home.  Cross your fingers and hope
for the best people!!!

MUSIC!

Totally fuckin' random.  I was going to post an old-school country mix but I got to lazy to sort out the tracks
I wanted for it.  Maybe some day...

Band of Horses - The Funeral
.  One of the best records of the year.  
Graham Fellows - Jilted John.  Great 70's joke punk.
Mando Diao - You Can't Steal My Love.  The only good song on this album.
Mogwai - Travel Is Dangerous.  Another of the best records on the year, a real return to form for these kids.
The Jam - In The City.  Old Jam = New Hottness.
The James Gang - Funk Number 49.  Greatest song ever?  Maybe.
