four a.m. #1 & #2

Yes, I am aware it's bad manners to post two entries in one day. For the first one of today, also the first on this blog, scroll down.

For the past little while I've been carrying around a folder which contains crash fatalities by state for people aged sixteen to twenty-five. It also contains a printout of a drawing of a girl sleeping and an attempt I made to copy that drawing. Importantly, the printout of the drawing contains a list of songs for a mix CD. The list is the second in a series. It is entitled four a.m. with chunky headphones (#2). The series is really about the chunky headphones. The time would change with each disc and the final number is sequential per disc. It just so happens that the first disc was also made at four in the morning (though it lacked the song Jackson Cannery by Ben Folds, as did #2).

I have been meaning to give four a.m. with chunky headphones (#1) to Sally. But I haven't yet. I might still not. I haven't made #2 into a disc yet but #1 is sitting beside me. It's very detailed. I might want to give her #2 too. I don't know. Feel free to comment, tell me about my taste in music, and what these CDs mean.

These have come about from a few songs which needed to go on a disc and then putting them together. And filling in the middle. I quite like #1 at least.

Anyway, here's the point.

mjec. Am very excited about the blog. Also concerned you might end up like Harriet. Also, I approve in your taste of music (particularly of the stuff I gave you, go Ted Leo and the Pharmacistis and Beulah!!!) although I do have reservations about the James Blunt (you already know I'm a snob, right?) anyway, keep happy.
