Cthulhu Joyce

Back to work you layabout.

Been at work for 13 minutes, giant pile of stuff in my lap already.
Keen.

Whose bright idea was it not to take today off too? OY. Though I refuse to work more than 8 hours. So, it's kinda like a vacation day. Right?


General good things to keep me sane:
New camera should arrive today.
Portrait shoot tonight.
Two SOs that actually want to see me regularly.
Making 2009 my year of music.
250 GB hard drives the size of my iPhone.

Music is my hot hot resolution

Poll #1324229 Music!

Are you a track order stickler?

You should listen to a CD in the order rendered. Artistic integrity!

I'll listen to CDs in the order I choose. The artist can suck it.

This year I'm going to (try to) listen to more music. Every Thursday a trip to Preplayed to get a cheap album and listen to at work. Sort of a resolution, I guess, but seems to fun to be a resolution. Puritanical society dictates that resolutions should be self improvement via vice remove or self-betterment. Clearly I'm doing it wrong.

And I always listen to the CD in order first and decide if it really matters. The second time through I put it on shuffle to test my conclusion. Generally I'm right as it's rather apparently when order really matters in an album.

My first for this year - The Decemberists: Castaways and Cutouts
I don't think the order matters for this CD.
Edit: on second though, there's definite progression in tone and mood.

Now I need a music icon.
