About Me:

Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.

Recent music:

Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street
King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
Beatles - Revolver
Yes - Close to the Edge

So basically, old stuff that's supposed to be good. Exile is pretty sloppy, I don't really know what I think of it yet. Crimson is good, except for Moonchild, which probably sounded a lot cooler in 1969 than it does now. I like Revolver at first, but it sort of falls apart after the first handful of songs. Close to the Edge is flawed but good.

New review on the way. Maybe.

I found a link to these guys while looking at My Bloody Valentine videos on youtube. I'm not sure what they're considered (shoegaze?) but they're great.

I'm trying to write a new review, but I keep losing interest in what I've written well before it's close to being done. Oh well.

I definitely come off as an asshole in my Metal Gear Solid review. I should probably do something about it. I don't want to take it down, as it's one of the few review I actually think I did a good job with, but I don't really feel like thinking of a better conclusion and so on. Maybe someday I'll fix it.

Someone made there own music video to the song Over and Over Again. That was a strange thing to do, although the video is actually kind of cool:

For those of you who read this, which is nobody, here's my current stance on their debut album:

Song "The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth": 9/10.
Album: 6/10.

Reading
March 23, 2006

I'm 200 pages into Cryptonomicon, which is awesome. But I'm only a fraction through what is a massive book (it breaks the 1000 page barrier even without its appendix). I don't know where I picked up this new interest in reading, but I plan on doing more of it.

Next on my list of giant, strange books to read: The Illuminatus! Trilogy


Illinois
February 04, 2006

I had heard enough about the Sufjan Stevens' Illinois from internet articles and around HG that when I saw it at my local mall's Fye I picked it up (I didn't think you'd find something like that in a mall chain store, but I was wrong). I don't thing it's as great as some people probably do, but it's pretty good.

My favorite tracks are Chicago, John Wayne Gacy jr., and The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out To Get Us. I also really like Jacksonville, Casimar Pulaski Day, and the zombie song. As for the rest, some of it's decent but not really memorable, and some of it falls flat. The short intermission songs are pretty pointless too. The worst track is the last, which is four minutes of noise appearing to build up to something and then dying out.
