The Best Cake Ever

This was Jill's birthday cake. Heidi and I had to order it all special from a kosher bakery. Then she wouldn't eat the tip. Geez.


Today's Favorite Lyric

...as brought to you by Belle & Sebastian:
"I put my arm around her waist;
She put me on the ground with judo."
That's from "This Is Just a Modern Rock Song". Today I am strictly iPoding the B&S while I paint things a colour named "Champagne Lilac". Ooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhfffffuuuuucccccckkkkkk do I miss school.


if i was reading this i would feel ripped off

Apparently I'm too good for blogging lately.
No insound order yet;
DDDD:L recorded all day yesterday - the key to an instant classic is to overdub handclaps a million fucking times;
Got a new volunteer gig reviewing albums for Stylus mag;
I like tofu with grilled vegetables;
Listening to MF Doom: "Operation: Doomsday" right now;
Bought a camera - Mamiya/Sekor 1000TL;
Conrad gave me a tie yesterday;
You can order cakes shaped like dinks from Gunn's;
Both "Broken Flowers" and "Me and You and Everyone We Know" make me want to make that french gesture, what with the multi-fingertip kissing and the "magnifique!" and everything;
and I feel really bad for my friends who are dealing with cancer in their families and I wish them both the best, families and friends as well.


Lazers Redux

DADADADA:Lazers will be meeting again in order to cut an EP before Conrad leaves for Montreal and the life of a librarian. Practice tonight, some time next week, and recording next weekend. Maybe a farewell basement show, who knows? The sky is the limit.

I'm reading The Postman Always Rings Twice today...halfway through already. Riveting. Writing is so succinct. I wanted to write like that. I wrote like that.


I'm trying to be less lazy

I've been pretty lazy lately. So I've been trying to do more. Yesterday I ironed on some patches to two pairs of pants. I am not ready to move up to sewing as that requires too much effort. Right now I am watching a movie, making a tape, and blogging at the same time.
That's pretty good, innit?
Obsessions lately:
"Stars of Track and Field" by Belle and Sebastian;
getting Arcade Fire tickets;
circles moving in circles.
Found this a couple of months ago:
