Posting for the sake of posting

Holy shit this blog guilt is a potent thing. There it is, all staring me in the face. Fine, blog, I give in, here you go.
What's new? Oh, let's see...
More reviews for Stylus sent in plus the interview of Bunf from Super Furry Animals. Listening to the tape of the interview was shocking at first, until I realized that what I was hearing was not really the true timbre of my voice, and that, in fact, the tape had recorded at a slower speed than it was playing on the stereo in my room - feeble hold on masculinity retained for another day.
It has also snowed a lot in the last day. A lot.
Oh yes, I almost forgot, while I was at the dentist the other day I became obsessed with phenomenology. What is phenomenology?

phe·nom·e·nol·o·gy (fĭ-nŏm'ə-nŏl'ə-jē) pronunciation
  1. A philosophy or method of inquiry based on the premise that reality consists of objects and events as they are perceived or understood in human consciousness and not of anything independent of human consciousness.
  2. A movement based on this, originated about 1905 by Edmund Husserl.
phe·nom'e·no·log'i·cal (-nə-lŏj'ĭ-kəl) adj.
phe·nom'e·no·log'i·cal·ly adv.
phe·nom'e·nol'o·gist n.

You know what? I really need to read up on it more (also on the Common Sense current of philosophy, which Jason had recommended).
Phenomenology as it interests me specifically - Shepard Fairey's Obey Giant project, and Denny's pile of stones in Chuck Palahniuk's Choke.
