Closed

5 things

  1. Closed today. Got my keys. Mom is in town for my walk-through/closing. Inspection and walk-through happened Wednesday; found a lot of little stuff, inspector found a ton of things that needed correcting. Blue tape all over the house right now. Still needs a major clean-up.
  2. New albums consumed: White Stripes, Dizzee Rascal, Polyphonic Spree, Siberian, The Click Five, The National, Beastie Boys, Queens of the Stone Age, Maps, Mandy Moore, Paramore. Enjoyed in bold.
  3. Picked up a book - it's been ages. Douglas Coupland's jPod. Enjoying it very much (huge DC fan), should be done with it in another day.
  4. Driven insane with the small stuff: water & sewer company, electric, internet, cable, trash, appliance delivery, garage door opener guy (Genie Stealth Pro, belt-driven). My builder didn't tell me the house doesn't come with a garage door opener(!)
  5. Resident Evil 4 for Wii is awesome zombie killing fun.

Songs I've been meaning to share

[audio:siberian_airship.mp3]
Siberian - Airship
I was bummed I didn't get to see Siberian play this song at Neumo's last week.

[audio:dowebelong.mp3]
Test Your Reflex - Do We Belong
Found this band off Rhapsody's 'bands to watch' - this song reminds me of J-rock...maybe it's the piano or something, but the way the whole song sounds reminds me of Glay or Larc or one of the many jrock bands and songs I was addicted to in the late 90s.
