Belle & Sebastian, "This Is Just A Modern Rock Song"

Currently, I am out of my cave, blogging (with stolen internet access) from Morningside Heights, Manhattan. Our friend was kind enough the let us stay at her place while she's out of town.

At 1am there was a group of kids on the street yelling at each other for 30 minutes. No fight broke out, but there was plenty of screaming and cursing. One guy yelled, over and over again, seemingly for the full half hour, "I'm gonna FUCK that n***** up!"

I looked for a stray hammer, crowbar or whatever to keep near me in bed should the shouting erupt into a full gang war and somehow spread into my friend's apartment (which is on the second floor, so the guys really felt like they were "in" the apartment). Happily, the "discussion" stayed at street level and my daughter slept through it all.

I woke up this morning cuddling a small hammer and felt slightly absurd.

Anyway, so clearly I have chosen to take the day off. Please head over to EvolutionTrader's blog today for the VO. I'm typing on a mac and can't figure out how to create a hyperlink... forgive me, ET.

You are just getting ridiculous now. TMBG, Neutral Milk Hotel, and now B&S? Are you sure we aren't the same person?

Hey, it's possible. I'm a bit strange and I wouldn't put it past the realm of possibility that I've split into two distinct personalities that are not aware of each other.

It's been 4 months since I've purchased any new cds though. Let's hope June goes well so I can get some new music.

Thanks for reading/listening! It's always great to find another person with similar musical tastes. Wish I had been able to stick around the city this past weekend for the Animal Collective show...
