listening to: brian eno – st. elmo’s fire
In the very wee hours of the morning, I decided I’d had enough of my unbelievably messy and unorganized collection of books and music laying about, so around 12:30 I started sorting and organizing. An hour or so later, my room looked like all hell, but I had a sort of satisfying idea of how many CDs I’d acquire throughout the school-year. So…here is the general list. I think this is pretty accurate, minus a few possibly less-than-interesting acquirements (note: I don’t go out and spend money on any new CD I would ever want. I will just say that Record Collector is the most amazing used record-store in existence, and than my friends are generous in their burning music for me. Also, quite a few of these were gifts in themselves, came from gift cards, as well. Some of the foreign ones, I caved and downloaded. Oh well. Obsession hurts):
Blonde Redhead – Misery is a Butterfly
the Beatles – Let It Be…Naked
Benjamin Britten – Cello Suites 1-3 (de Rohem)

I was thinking of inserting a list of all of the groups/artists I’d generally discovered just in the past two semesters, but that would be an awfully long list that only I would end up examing. Hmm. Oh well. Here’s one, anyway.
Ampop, Belle and Sebastian, Blue Oyster Cult, Dismemberment Plan, Brian Eno, Enon, Iggy Pop, Interpol, Kimono, Maus, Mates of State, Matmos, Minus the Bear, Modest Mouse, Mogwai, Noir Desir, Neutral Milk Hotel, Number Girl, Rasputina, Royksopp, Six Parts Seven, Stereolab, Television, Yann Tiersen.
Oh god. I had more to blog about. Definitely, I did. I’ve just been unpleasantly distracted, though, and am now contemplating packing up a few necessary belongings and just roaming the earth by foot, where I can’t encounter people or make them think or worry over me.
Or I might just go cry.
This sucks. I hope this is my last day of crazy.
