-timeline of computer history this appealed to the true dork in me. it dates back to 1939. and the advent of modern computing dates back to the 1890 census. aint that some shit?
-i've recently developed a new found appreciation of fleetwood mac. good shit yo.
-i'm starting to get the itch for some new tattoos soon. the last ink i got was over the summer (including one i did myself on myself!) and i was thinking i want to get some shading on my left sleeve to tighten it up and "manitas" (spanish for little hands) on my right wrist. after that i want to get started on my left leg sleeve that i've been thinking about for a while. i still haven't completely decided what i want but i'm leaning towards traditional pieces that can be done one at a time and all be shaded together so i can do it a little at time and not have it looked unfinished. i might still go with a big epic piece but i'm not sure what to do. i had the thought to do a revolutionary war themed piece since that imagery was all around my house when i grew up (my parents were married in 1975 and decorated their first house with bicentennial decor) but i also thought of rockets and robots. idk. in any case i want it to be a definate cohesive statement as my arms and right leg are both kind of random. any suggestions?
-i'm a few weeks late but i'm currently DLing david lynch's first album "crazy clown time" that was released on 11/7. i've read good reviews on it so far. i'm sure it will be interesting to say the least. and speaking of mr.lynch i also just DLd the soundtrack to twin peaks (which was done by angelo badalamenti). i think its time to rewatch it in its entirety again.
-so i totally forgot to mention in my previous two posts that i went to see sebadoh again and they were fucking awesome! it was even better than when i went to see them in april; they played tons of my favorite songs including "soul and fire" the first song i ever heard by them on a mixtape in high school. they played for well over an hour and it was def the most bang for my buck i've ever gotten at a show. i didn't take any pics this time but above is a shot from the april show (for the rest look in the archives of this shit under posts in april)
i mentioned unwound last post and i've still been listening to them a lot so i thought i'd post a few of my fav songs by them...enjoy!
look a ghost [my favorite track from "leaves turn inside you"]
lifetime achievement award [this was the first unwound song i ever heard. still love it today]
[i have this record on vinyl and i remember rocking it out in my room as a teenager. i love the bass work on this song, its really solid]
