best week ever? um, no, holden mcneil.

It’s been kind of a fucked up week…quite uneven. I’ve been sick as hell, Camera Obscura’s new record My Maudlin Career started streaming a week before it’s release date on Monday night, which was awesome. I’ve been listening to it pretty much constantly since then. I got an e-mail today from 4AD, Camera Obscrua’s record label, that there was something amiss with the vinyl mastering so the pressings were delayed and would be shipped late. Kind of a bummer except that they e-mailed me a digital copy of the album so I actually get it early. Nice!

I probably failed a Spanish exam earlier today which sucks but I had a fairly good show though the weather was too nice and I was in too good a mood, despite failing el examen de espanol. Played some stuff of the depression playlist but I just don’t see myself doing the show now. As we approachTake Back The Nightkeep an ear out for the Uppity Women show I’ve been planning for a while.

Last night: Pittsburgh 4 – Philadelphia 1. Wooooo! I love the playoffs.

Here’s a few things before I go.

She & Him 7″

Beatminerz Radio

Music Loving Babies?
Personally, I had my son listening to The Ramones in utero and to this day he loves them, along with the Sex Pistols, the Clash, The Stray Cats and all manner of other music. He has an original pressing copy of Rocket to Russia waiting for him on his 18th birthday. I remember when he was a tiny, tiny baby and I used to hold him and dance to that album and he would fall asleep on my shoulder.

And now, Velocity Girl.
