the first time, the last time, all the times i would have liked there to have been

friends: i keep trying to write about this album but i can't without sounding dumb. i've listened to it a lot. i really, really like it, and i can see it becoming one of my favorites, and i would recommend it to others-- so here you go.

in my hardening to every heart but one

the unending amends you've made
are enough for one life,
be done,

i believe in innocence,
little darlin',
start again
i believe in everyone.

dear blog

sometimes i almost forget about you! life gets busy, you know. here are some things i have been enjoying:

bill callahan-- jim cain

charles barkley's absolutely inexplicable transubstantiation of lack of acting, cue card-reading, or general charisma into GENIUS COMEDY

andy samberg's surprisingly spot on impression of the greatest actor of our generation

uh, conan, duh.

probably others; my dad just called and is bothering me. peace later.

oh hey i finished a new song

it was originally called "there's no telling 01 02 09" because i recorded it MORE THAN A YEAR AGO. as i was leafing through old derelict recordings, i found it (and some other fun things) and while i was at the coffee shop today i thought i'd try to make it into a full song, you know, with parts and whatnot. i'm always trying to live up to my reputation: minimal folk-electronica blend, and while it's mostly accidental that it comes out that way, i suppose i have to agree with them. they know me better than i know myself.

without further ado: 373 days after first being recorded, here is "there's no telling 01 10 10"

with turnaround time like this, i should have a record done by the end of the century! or by the next wrens album!
