music: The Thrills [let's bottle bohemia] this cd fucking rocks my world! i want to make out with the singer and i don't even know what he looks like.....ok, i lied... there is a photo of them on the cover and i've seen them live. :)
I made it to work on time, actually 5 minutes early. As I drove in.... this guy that I've had my eye on for the past few days drove in at exactly the same time- down the same row. I parked next to him yesterday [on purpose] when I came back from lunch.
At 5pm as I'm getting into my jeep, the radio is blasting some news [not to cool - had to fumble around to stick my discs back in].... here he comes, we smiled and I took off. It's like what should I do? ....say "hey, how are ya - been working here long - oh yeah? what department? want to grab a drink after work" then I'd have to look at my [rock schedule] calendar.... I'm free only on Saturday!
I can't bring myself to say anything.
Anyway, I got a package from Amazon yesterday. YES! My CD's have finally arrived. The Thrills [let's bottle bohemia] K.D. Lang [hymns of the 49th parallel] Elvis Costello [the delivery man] Blues Explosion [damage] Tom Waits [real gone] Mark Lanegan [bubblegum]. So far I've listened to The Thrills, which is amazing. I love this band so much, his voice just gets me! I listened to a little bit of Elvis Costello and to my surprise, Lucinda Williams sings on a few songs. excellent stuff! I heard a few songs from Blues Explosion, which is the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. They just dropped [The Jon Spencer] for some reason. Though I haven't heard it all the way through, this CD reminds me of the older, more raw stuff. I'm excited about that and to see them in a few months at the Fonda.
Tonight The Dirtbombs are going to blow the roof off the Knitting Factory..oh and the Ponys are playing with them. This is ass-shaking 60's garage rock type of stuff. Mick [the singer] used to be in The Gories and The Blacktops!
.....shit I just remembered that I had a dream last night that it was sold out and I wasn't able to take photos. I hope my dream isn't true.
ps - check this out. A Tribute album for The Cars! Jason Falkner doing 'touch and go', Jon Auer doing 'misfit kid' and Butch Walker doing 'my best friends magic girlfriend'.
