I initially wasn't going to update today because I'm feeling particularly lazy. Also, I have a cold. There's been a bug running around the music dept and I guess I finally caught it. I think depriving myself of sleep (and therefore weaking my body's defense systems) probably helped. I still need to e-mail my professors and tell them why I wasn't in class.

I updated the links page.

My friend John is reading Come As You Are, and we got to talking about the bands Nirvana was into, and how no one really listens to them any more. I decided to make him a mix cd. It's been a weird experience for me, making John's mix cd, because I stopped listening to Nirvana several years ago, but I still listen to bands they liked. I'm not quite finished with John's mix.

I was talking to Beddoe the other day. He was uncharacteristically talkative. I told him I'd make a mix cd, since he's firewalled at school and can't connect to P2P software. His mix was pretty easy to make, since there really was no theme and I therefore wasn't limited to any particular material.

One of Jesse's friends was telling me how there's a local music store that sells mixtapes and cd's that people make. I should look into that. Maybe I could make a few extra bucks on the side.

A while ago I thought it would be cool to stop referring to people by their real names and use their AIM screen names instead. Is that a dumb idea?

Quote of the Day: The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don't wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules.

-Rob Gordon (John Cusack, in High Fidelity)
