I few days ago I bit my tongue and the side of my mouth. Since then, the wounds have become more inflamed despite my washing my mouth with listerine 3 times a day. I can't speak. Eating, oddly enough, is the only thing that brings any releife. I finished a track today (pretty much).

Power Ballads

Format Reviewed: iTunes/CD
Genre: Drum & Bass

London Elektricity's new album "Power Ballads" is another step above his previous full length release "Billion Dollar Gravy", which was a step above "Pull the Plug" before that. The opening track "Out of This World" is perhaps the most impressive in the collection. It's a big-room jazz mash-up track with vocals just as fitting. "The Strangest Sectret in the World" is perhaps the strangest song and sounds like it would have fit perfect on Roni Size's "New Forms". "Pussy Galore" is the shortest, but also perhaps the most fun track. And of course this album contains the liquid anthems "Remember the Future" and "Will to Love". The album is available now on iTunes, and will be released domestically on CD from Breakbeat Science Recordings on Oct 11. I'm sure it's also available on vinyl released by LE's own label Hospital Records. Check it on Since I was too lazy to type out the track list, I did a screen shot...

Odd bits

This is an odd track I did a few years back that I ran accross whilst cleaning up my hard drive. It's not very long and should be taken for novelty value only.

The Sentry Revieled

In New Avengers #10, the mystery behind the Sentury is at last revieled. This series, and in perticular this issue, is perhaps the most well written super-hero comic in print right now. Bob Reynolds has been made to forget he ever existed, and so has the rest of the world. Emma Frost restors his memory, but refuses to inflict psychic modification to the rest of the world to make them remember. As a result, he is forced to start from scratch, gaining the trust of the world and the heros around him.

Fever Pitch

I just bought and watched "Fever Pitch" with Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon. I got it partially because I was curious, and partially because my girlfriend also wanted to see it. I was slightly turned off by it before seeing it because it was directed by the Farrelly Brothers (Dumb and Dumber, Stuck on You). Well, I ended up really liking the movie. Then, when I learned it was based on a book by the same guy who's book "High Fidelity" was based on, I was a bit less surprised that I liked it, as "High Fidelity" is one of my favorite movies (Certainly my favorite comedy). I initially had chick-flick-phobia about it before seeing it. As it turns out, it's just as much of a guy-flick. It's one of the only romantic comedies (High Fidelity being another prime example) that tells the story from both sides. Even when Ben (Jimmy Fallon) is acting like a shmuck and blowing off Linsey (Barrymore), you're still made to understand and sympathize with his reasons. And what are his reasons? He is overly-obsessed with the Red Sox. I could go into details, but I'll just let the movie explain it to you. But don't worry, this is not a sports movie; it's a comedy with romance that takes place around sports. It's like I said, you're made to sympathize with his vice, even if you don't give a good god damn about baseball. Of course, what kind of romantic comedy would it be if in the end, he didn't make some sort of compromise.

Emotional Rather blasts 'new journalism order'

For some reason or another my comments function hasn't been working, that has been corrected now.
And yet another 2 to add to the tally. This time, one woman repeatedly confirmed a certian (incorrect) address, bitched at me over the phone when I called her because she wasn't at that address; I gave her the pizza free (after driving to the other side of town where she actually was), a few minutes later she called the resturant to complain that the pizza was "nasty", at which point she was given store credit for more free pizza.

The other one was this 20 year old meathead who gave us a wrong address when he called last time as well.

Just for the record, another 2 fools yesterday that didn't know where they lived.

Sunday, September 18, 2005

I have come to stop expecting very much from people. At work, I have ceased to expect anyone to actually do the work correctly to which they are assigned. In traffic, I have ceased to expect anyone drive with any common sense, courtesy, or caution. Now, I have ceased to expect that the customers I deliver to know their own home address. On numorous occasions, I have called a customer on the phone to tell me their address, and have them give me something that ends up being completely wrong. I'm not sure what kind of basic intelligence is lacking that they don't know where they live.

I'm not sure if I feel good or bad about being lazy today staying in bed and watching TV all day.

The Losers

I want to take a moment to defend my current favorite comic series from the nay-sayers. "The Losers" is a action-espionage-thriller with some elements you may have seen in movies or television before. So what. This series puts a fresh spin on the genre and takes it places never explored in other media. One review I read said that the characters were narrow, underdeveloped, and shallow. It went on to say the the reviewer had only read 2 issues. Well there you have it; One of the great things about this series is the careful time it takes in telling it's stories. It's certainly not a one issue:one story comic book. The smaller story arcs are usually about 6 issues long, and the larger arc seems like it's only just getting started (up to number 27 now). So, if you are interested in this book, I recommend the 3 collected trade paperbacks (graphic novels) entitled (respectively), "Ante Up", "Double Down", and "Trifecta"....pretty sure those collect up till about issue 20 or so. Pictured here is the cover to issue #26.
