Happy New Years!

New Years Champagne

Well 2008 has been anally raped by 2009 and here we are. I’m taking a stay-cation from work right now, and hopefully I don’t get sick.

Recently I’ve been doing a lot more walking. I’m amazed that I live only a mile or so away from the heart of Hollywood, so it’s been nice to walk about and not having to worry about how drunk I get. Yes this will probably promote binge drinking a la my Santa Barbara days, but whatever.

Now if only the FedEx guy will get here with my Lakers tix so I can get out into the world.

Here are some albums that I liked in 2008. There weren’t a whole lot of interesting things that came out in 08. But here it is in no particular order.

Deerhoof – Offend Maggie
Diamanda Galas – Guilty, Guilty, Guilty
Magnetic Fields – Distortion
Mae Shi – HLLLYH
No Age – Nouns
TV on the Radio – Dear Science
Xiu Xiu – Women As Lovers
Experimental Dental School – Jane Doe Loves Me
Nine Inch Nails – The Slip
