Ah, After Harvest Festival weekend.  It happens but once a year.  I have no expectations, so this could be okay.
So, I'm not getting to go to Ben Folds.  It sucks that I'm out the thirty bucks, but hey, at least I'll get to see him in November.
Not much else going on.  Just a lot of getting ready to move.  August 2nd isn't that far off...

I drove for the first time in two years today. Anger is a very powerful motivation...

I love Jay-Jay Johanson. This is a fact. Anyone who knows me very well can attest to this. However, being American and a fan of Mr. Johanson is very difficult. We get NOTHING. We were lucky to get a release of "Antenna." Go figure that I was abroad at the time and got it nine months before it came out here. But that's not the point.

What is the point you ask? Finding news on Jay-Jay Johanson in English is flippin' difficult. If it weren't for the SweetRevenge on the Pet Shop Boys Forums, I wouldn't have known that Jay-Jay recently released a greatest hits CD with five (count 'em - five) new songs, including an updated version of "So Tell The Girls..." Seriously, this is a crime. Thank goodness it's only been out for a month, or I would have really been upset.

The lesson: America is not the place for me. In a month where another of my faves, Bebel Gilberto, has released a new CD and I only learned of it after fact, I'm ready to leave. Every place else in the world seems to enjoy the music I like (Even Canada, where I had to order the Jay-Jay CD from). Fair enough... here's to new releases!

Flashing signals. It's what independance is all about. The best part of the 4th.

Anyway, I had one. All I needed. Wicked.
