Review of this Christmas Season... 

It was too short, everyone's in a crappy mood and overall it bites.

More Silver Sea mixes 

Including lots of Bowie, INXS, REM, Nick Cave, Pernice Brothers, and Pagan Holiday.
When I can sit at the computer for more than 10 minutes without being assaulted by an infant, I shall post them.

Random opinionated detritus 

DVD review of the week:
Rented "Songcatcher" and it was craptacular.

Quotes from "Last report on the miracles at Little No Horse" by Lousie Erdrich:
"Since the damage was done, she prayed to see her damage again."
"But it was that spirit who taught me that to laugh or to cry was all the same, and who gave me the strength to spit pain in the face and love the world in joy."
"I am sure that a number of mystics would have benefited from a regimen of antidepressants, however, we would all be the poorer."

You shall Know Our Velocity 

Full review forthcoming. Initial impressions? Compelling, Couplandesque. Found the middle part to be distracting and overly contrived but it certainly made for an interesting perspective on the rest the narrative. Sometimes feels like a crackerjack response to a really strange creative writing assignment. Still, overall I liked it. Another watershed moment in the history of Gen X literature. Reflects that sarcastic-but-sensitive, overly analytic inner voice so typical of young geniuses of my demographic. That aimless yet hopeful search for meaning in the universe. Kind of the viewpoint of "the glass is half-empty, but eventually we might find a pitcher from which to refill it."
