So, it looks like the rule around here is that if you mistakenly check this blog, or some jerk sets it as your homepage and you simply open your browser, you have to post something.
I haven't seen most you in years (literally!) and I'm still holding it down here in Bloomington. I work in the School of Fine Arts, and have since June '06, but I'm applying to grad schools right now with the crazy idea that someone would accept me into their MFA program. Applications are due in the next two to three weeks and most schools will make me stand in the corner and wait for a good three months before they even bother to tell me anything. I'll keep you all posted (literally, again) with my news.
As it was usually my thing to tell you all what music I'm digging, here is what made me hot in 2007 (in no particular order):
-Radiohead In Rainbows
-The Tough Alliance New Chance
-Of Montreal Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
-Jens Lekman Night Falls on Kortedala
-The Field From Here We Go Sublime
-The Besnard Lakes ...Are the Dark Horse
-Feist The Reminder
-Animal Collective Strawberry Jam
-Panda Bear Person Pitch
-Kanye West Graduation
-Pantha du Prince This Bliss
-Low Drums and Guns
If you want the hook-up for any of these albums, I'd be glad to share. Just like the good old days.
Peace and Happy New Year,
