What a drag it is, the state I'm in....

The Killers - Sams Town.

The album has an intro in the form of "Enterlude" and an outro in the form of "Exitlude", which is fine, but then they throw a spanner in the works by having the intro "Enterlude" as the second track. The title track opens the album, then we get the 'intro'. What's that all about?

I'm still giving it 'the listen' but on the 3rd or 4th spin, it sounds pretty good. Not as 'instant' as Hot Fuss, but it's certainly growing on me. This is a good sign.

Tomorrow, our Business manager gets fired.
I've known about this since the beginning of last month. Tomorrow, he gets fired. The next day, we have a new Business manager starting.
Somehow, that all seems wrong to me.

A bird shit on my head today. Who on earth ever said that was good luck?!

I was party to a conversation earlier at work. The guy was telling how, on their friends last night before his wedding, they all put together and took him to a seedy brothel. He went red faced as he chuckled through the story of how ugly all the girls were, but his friend was so drunk, he wasn't fussy. I didn't get to hear the punchline, even if there was one because I went out the back for a cigarette. Stories like that get me wound up for too many reasons.

There's lots of things goin on in my life right now. Some good, some indifferent, some great and some shit. The important thing for me is that the one great thing is something that can overpower all the others.
It will all come together, one day.

Like the late, great Bill Hicks said, "Life is just a ride."

New songs available for free download, yes free, on the right hand side.

I thought the exact same thing with the track order on Sam's Town!

me too!

I thought "Hot Fuss" is an album with some AMAZING tracks on it, amongst some very ordinary fillers. It's too early to judge this one, but it sounds like the highs aren't as high (although the last single was a real grower), but I hope the lows aren't as low. If you know what I mean.

I also bought two eels albums for £10 at the same time, and I plan to spend some time getting to know and love them as well. And Scott Matthews.

Mmmm. CDs.

Well, CDs that I instantly ripped and put onto my iPod and put away, probably never to be played as CDs again.
