|12:26 am - still here!|
i know i've been dreadfully absent. i've been consumed by work. work is extremely challenging - both in ways that help me to grow and are amazingly fulfilling and in ways that frustrate me more than words can express. so that's pretty much what i've been up to.
mags wanted me to post so i feel like i should have more to say. i've been going to the farmer's market a lot and cooking and all that good stuff. i've also found myself going to a lot of comedy shows at the upright citizens brigade, which reminds me of living in chicago. my cat is in good health and is a delightful companion. my car is in less good health and is an increasingly unreliable companion.
i've been listening to the new nelly furtado stuff a lot. also spank rock. i would totally listen to a spank rock remix of a nelly furtado song if there were one. and like i do every summer, i'm obsessed with 70's soul. coachella was fabulous this year and i'm going to see massive attack at the hollywood bowl later this summer.
i hope you are all well and assure you that even though i haven't been reading, i have been thinking about all of you.
Current Music: jamie lidell - what's the use
Got any recommendations from either Furtado's new album or Spank Rock's general library?

(these are mainly female vocalist poppy self-empowerment stuff, like i know you like it.)
nelly furtado - maneater, no hay igual, glow, i am
lily allen - friday night, LDN
christina milian - say i, who's gonna ride
jamie lidell - any song he's ever made
paris hilton - stars are blind
ropes - kill her off
tami chynn - hyperventilatin
mark ronson - ooh wee
christina aguilera - ain't no other man
corinne bailey rae - trouble sleeping, put your records on
the gossip - standing in the way of control
for spank rock:
put that pussy on me

Re: music stuff
i'm very excited you've posted, but now i'm not allowed to speak to you because you actually like "stars are blind". i admit it's catchy, but more in the "i would like to pull my eardrums out with my fingernails now" kind of way. did you hear the clip to her new song yet?
i am jeluss you get to see massive attack again.
Oooh! New music. :D
Songs I couldn't find:
"I Am" by Nelly Furtado
Either of the Lily Allen (though there were many versions of "smile")
"Put that Pussy On Me"
But I checked out the rest, and I enjoyed listening to them all. Thanks so much for the recommendations. You should organize a compilation. :) "Sweet Talk" is so incredibly infectious.
I'm gone from Saturday through the 18th, but if you get the time thereafter and feel like sharing, I'd particularly like to hear Ropes, since I couldn't even get an alternative track by them....
hey, nice to see you! happy summer! :)
abby abby abby! :)
i'm glad to see a post from you and to know that you are okay (if overworked.)
though i'm slightly suspicious now that you and seltzerduke
may be the same person, even though i've met you both. and in fact have seen you in the same room... because you both updated today after long absences.
be well, and be happy. :)
i think that's because i "nudged" them both. at least i think i did. livejournal has this new feature where you can send an automated email to people on your friendslist saying you miss seeing their posts and hope they post again soon. i figured it would probably just irritate people, but it seems to work.
ah... nudging. i remember when that first was announced. i hadn't seen anything about it in some time. well done!
(but now you've disillusioned me. i thought i was on to some grand metaphysical thing. *sigh*) ;)
