I just got back from seeing the Fiery Furnaces. Now, I've never claimed to love them, and I'm not saying that now. But I do like them, especially after tonight. Part of the reason I was a late-adopter is that I was put off by their general art-fagginess. Eventually, that didn't bother me as much and I just focused on the parts I liked. Tonight, though, was something completely different. They were bad-ass. Even the fast songs from the first album they played faster and louder than I thought they could. Certainly faster and louder than any of the indy fuckers there were comfortable with. Seriously, though, it fucking rocked. I thought my ears were gonna bleed. For anyone who cares, this is my text message version of the set list: Run, Clear, Street, Tropical, Quay, Hardiele, Granddaughter, Candy, Street, Bend, Curses, Book, Choir, Richmond, Dog, North, Swim, Evergreen, Chris, Chief, Boat, Feet. And if that makes any sense to you, you're a much truer fan than I. I wish I had taken my camera, but I figured I'd have to use a flash, which I didn't want to do. But I was so close that I wouldn't have had to, and I could have at least taken video with it. My bad. The opening band, The Child Ballads, was top notch, and featured a member of one of my favorite bands circa 9th grade - Judah Bower.
There's a song on the new album called "The Garfield El." That was my stop. I miss Chicago a lot these days.
Is she objectively pretty?

Does anyone else find those Tic-Tac commercials super-sexy?

yeah, it's really not so much the girls themselves as what they're doing. in the first one, the girl is actually sort of weird looking. i mean, i know they're probably trying to be subtly sexual, so i feel sort of bad for buying into it. but still, i wonder if that's actually possible.

a whole bunch of things are teaming up to make me really miss it. isn't it just living situation goings-on that make you not want to be there? as opposed to the city itself, i mean.
