Quarter-Century Blues:
I turned 25 yesterday and the bones already hurt.

Built to Spill tonight downtown, gonna meet the band through friends at my apartment complex, snap some shots, dig some tunes: Rock.

School is ultra-consuming and each week hauls by too fast.

My parents are coming for Thanksgiving. Yay.

Picks for yer player:

  1. Son Volt-wide swing tremolo
  2. PW Long’s Reelfoot-Hit me again
  3. Varnaline-sweet life
  4. Buffalo Tom-smitten
  5. Nick Drake-any and all
  6. Grasshopper and the Golden Crickets
  7. Mercury Rev-deserter’s songs
  8. Golden Smog-weird tales
  9. Built To Spill-there’s nothing wrong with love
  10. Bob Mould-the last dog and pony show

“Tarzana” by Emigre is a nice font.

“The Adventures of Jimmy Corrigan” on Fantagraphics Comics are worth the couple bucks.

“Ronin” the other night didn’t blow my skirt up.

Take care y’all…dig those fall colors.
