|So tired. So satisfied.

Nine miles today. That means that, assuming I do my usual three miles tomorrow, I'm completely caught up. (I started a day late and I've been one or two days behind ever since, so it'll be really nice to be caught up on running.) The weather was downright awful, and I kinda hurt now...but I did it! Yay!
I listened to The Best of Big Country. I wonder how many other Glenn McDonald fans are sentimental enough to buy Big Country records because of what he writes about them. For that matter, I wonder how many other people are sentimental enough to buy records.
you are the awesome for still going to my art thingie despite the hurty legs.
I wouldn't have missed it. Besides, it wasn't really so hurty until I got home afterward, so no big deal.
But dude. I started thinking, "Hey, I could make a mix CD that evokes New York, and Jim could take it with him on his trip," and in the process of trying to figure out how, despite Lou Reed and the first Fountains of Wayne album, such a CD could ever not end up consisting simply of Bridge Over Troubled Water in its entirety, I started thinking about how there's this sorta I-II-V progression in the song "Keep the Customer Satisfied" that also turns up in this one really old Pumpkins song that never made it onto any of their records but that I like a lot, so then I had to go listen to that, and that led to something else which led to something else and it's all your fault, dammit! *happy* =)
that is the sweetest thing ever, you thinking of making me a cd.
do you get my emails, btw? i just dont know that you've replied to them.
(and for the record: IF THE SONG IN QUESTION IS "DROWN" IT WILL CAUSE MUCH MUCH more SWOONING)
It is not. The song I'm thinking of makes "Drown" look like "Bullet with Butterfly Wings", obscurity-wise.
(I emailed you. twice.)
I wonder that too! So how is it [the Big Country] then?
Well. Big. Early U2-ish, I guess, but with less angst. At first it was just too over-the-top-guitar-y for me to really appreciate the lyrics, although that's sort of changing with repeated listens. He would probably cringe to hear me say this, though. Just goes to show how subjective all this stuff is.
