being retrospective

Songs that I couldn't get over when I was a freshman in university:

1. Dismemberment Plan - The City
2. Mekons - Last Dance
3. Rainer Maria - Artificial Light
4. Bright Eyes - Nothing Get Crossed Off
5. Spoon - The Way We Get By
6. Zog Bogbean - John Fisher Ford
7. And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead - Another Morning Stoner
8. Flaming Lips - Fight Test
9. Wilco - Ashes of American Flags
10. Interpol - Roland
11. Beck - Guess I'm Doing Fine
12. Minus the Bear - Monkey!! Knife!! Fight!!
13. Modest Mouse - Dramamine
14. Russian Futurists - Let's Get Ready to Crumble
15. Simon Joyner - Only Living Boy in Omaha

It is strange to say, but music sounded, felt, rolled around different. I jumped into a warm pool -- you sink quickly and gently rise to the top. You are met by chill. You gasp for air. There you are.
I tried something different. We are seeing how it goes.

days of our years

It seems that what we have here are some Neural Milk rarities: some liveliness, some demogrification. Amoebic versions of "Aeroplane" favorites, covers of NMH by Mountain Goats, Magic Robot and more.

Band names (that are totally not taken yet):
- Pamida
- Paris Hilton
