take this list with a grain of salt. it’s fun to talk about these things that make up aspects of our pop culture. i think this list is probably based on what you should have read through college and possibly grad school. and you should get bonus points for:


–having read other works by the author though you may have not read this particular title.

–points for having read a title in its original language

–understand where the fine line between understanding basic concepts of western culture and elitism blur.

9818 – Writer’s Block: Quantity vs. Quality

That really depends. If it’s food, and I’m really hungry, mediocre filler does the job nicely. If I’m doing something for pure enjoyment, I generally prefer a small dash of excellent over a bucketful of just okay. I’d much rather read an excellent short story than read the same thing padded out to a 12-volume set of books.

Rain knocked out comcast connection again – put in another call for service tomorrow. That’s a case of me preferring to have a lot of pipeline at average speed rather than poor connectivity at really high speed.

9644 – Tuesday –

Newton slept on my hands – must’ve been seeking bonus warmth, or he was jealous of my rubbing BHK’s arm.

meme-time – snagged from Sean

Think of 15 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that no matter what they were thought of musically shaped your world. When you finish, tag 15 others, including me. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you’re it!

Here is my list, narrowed to 15. (Scotto isn’t tagging anyone, but is happy to see any other entries)

Let’s see… this could be fairly tricky – I’m not sure of music that changed me forever… I’ve never really been one of those folks to play the same album over and over again… a few that come to mind –

Stuff that was significant to me, and I still dig –

1. Beach boys – I went through a major Beach Boys phase as a kid – Pet Sounds was something that got a lot of play both in my home and on my walkman. The album still cheers me up quite a lot.

2. Beatles – Yellow Submarine / Octopus’s Garden (not really an album, but the first music I had as a kid.. that I remember. It wasn’t even the Beatles, it was the Sesame Street Version) If I had to pick an actual Beatles  album, I really liked Rubber Soul.

3. Talking Heads – Little Creatures Great album – started me on that Band, and despite the "art student snob" aspect, I really like ’em.
4. Tubes – Outside Inside Got this form a yard sale – I was very pleasantly surprised. (Wild Women of Wongo is what got me to drop 25¢ for it. ) I figure I’ve gotten well worth my penny a play just for that track.
5. ELO – Time – first Album bought with my own money, played a *lot*

6. Steve Martin – A Wild And Crazy Guy Not really a music album, though it had banjo and The KingTut single.

7. B-52s – Whammy Discovered them late – mostly via gaming with Ray & Kat. (Specifically for Trism)

8. Zombies – Odessey and Oracle This one keeps coming back, and I love it every time. (Most recently for "This will be our year")

9. XTC – Oranges and Lemons  So Sue me… I like Mayor of Simpleton.

10. They Might Be Giants – Lincoln I first heard them on Dr. Demento when I was in High School – I’ve been hooked since. Hard to believe it’s been 20 years+

11. Genesis – Selling England by the Pound Very different stuff than the Phil Collins-centric bits in later years. It may be my all-time fave Genesis Album.

12. Chuck Mangione – Chase the Clouds Away – One of the five 8-track tapes I had for my first car, the blue bomber. played repeatedly, because we only had 5 albums, and eventually the AC/DC and Beach Boys tapes wore out.

13. Rusted root – When I Woke – first really fun time with the hippies – post concert. I like them quite a lot.

14. Poi Dog Pondering – Poi Dog Pondering – "and I said YEAH!" – discovered by accident. Thanks, tape-traders in college!

15. Queen – Flash Gordon Soundtrack – FLASH ! AHAHHHHH! HE’LL SAVE EVERY ONE OF US!

Trimmed back down to goatee.

Wasn’t feeling too well today. Got up at 8, went back to bed at noon, slept until 2.

BHK and I stayed in most of the day, save for a trip to the library and then to Roland’s to get spaghetti for tonight’s dinner. (Which was super tasty)

Chris was a bachelorette tonight, so she came over had dinner and watched NCIS with us.

After she left, we watched some Mr. Meaty left over from the marathon on Nick a week ago – The show consistently gets a good laugh or two our of me every time.

Speaking of TV – I forgot to mention that we watched the Superbowl – actually quite a good game – I really loved that 100yd snatch and grab. BHK and I still prefer the Puppy Bowl (and the kitten halftime show).

– another meme – pass it around if you want! I’m interested in what other people put. I think I found it first via Kat, or maybe Misti

My father.

Long weekend starts tonight. I’m off from work until next Wednesday, though I’m not going to Punxatawney for my 40th, as previously hoped.

BHK found a great Chinese food place – "Graces" –

Allison had the Kung Pao Chicken and Shrimp, and they carved her a nifty little goldfish!

Something we didn’t eat – keen anemone in the fish tank!

Food was fantastic, service excellent, and the price was right. I’ll be back for more soon – maybe to take the mom-in-law out for her birthday in 2 weeks?

From here and there – "I guess this would be considered to be a survey?"
