la di da di da

so whats going on in our little world? la di da di da.

I've been reading The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. If you are a fan of really good books you should probably read that one. Also if you like good movies you should watch Wristcutters: A Love Story, or perhaps Into the Wild. Recently my favorite place to drink coffee and enjoy the good weather we've been having is on the patio at Quacks Fourtythird Street Bakery.

I tried to get tickets to Wilco but both days sold out too fast, am trying to decide if I want to sit on the lawn for Radiohead, and missed Feist the other day. Oh me and a friend are remixing Nude, if its decent at all I think I will post it, I don't think we will be done in time for the actual contest. Right now it sounds like something Air did off of the Virgin Suicides soundtrack. That might change though who knows.

The new songs have been coming along well. Our next album will sound a little different, probably. I think its impossible not to be. Our plan is to write songs that are more mature, the problem is we are all big babies =/. Once all of us are together again we will start recording, I think...probably beginning/mid May. I know we've taken our time with this one. Its a little disheartening when I think about bands like animal collective putting out two new albums since we've put out ours. We're figuring out this industry. Plus we want to make sure this gets done the right way, and is not rushed. We do have knew songs though, some people have heard them.

I'm about to take another trip to Ikea to buy a new dresser. I've been there around 12 times these last couple of weeks. Its great. I don't know what I would do if it wasn't around. Kind of like the internet.

I wonder what the next big thing is gonna be, you know where people will look back and say "how in the world did I get by without -------?" I hope its flying cars. That needs to happen already.

The best of luck on the new record! It's probably best that it's not a rushed process, but I really cannot wait to hear it.

I know this is incredibly off topic, but if you haven't seen the movie Memento, I suggest you watch it.

it's so weird to think that my favorite band has its own favorite bands.

you should be your own favorite band; there is none better. <-----(bad grammar or just a really cute use of a semicolon?)
