This is an mp3 blog attempting to document the gross amount of music I listen to. About once a day, I'll post something I like. If you're a copyright holder on anything I host, get in touch, and we'll settle things in a steel cage instead of a courtroom.

Happy VD, assholes

This is my first Valentine's in a long time where I haven't had a little sweetheart to do something with. Instead, I've spent today making out with a bottle of cheap wine and listening to Hungarian fiddle music. (Thank god the office was closed today; I could get used to this four-day workweek thing.)

So since I have no pretty little gal to hunker down and watch Harold and Maude and drink by the fireplace with, I decided to do something special for you, my loyal reader(s). I made a full-on Valentine's Day mix, already sequenced and sized to fit on a single compact disc. So, burn it and play it when you burn your ex's clothes. Some of them might not make sense, but it covers most of the girls I've loved or at least really liked, not to mention all the crap re: my love life past and present that's been bouncing off the walls of my skull as of late.

You know, it's kinda funny. Everyone who knows me knows me as full of bluster, a liquored-up loudmouth who isn't afraid to insult people I don't like. (Ian recalls the time I shut down some vainglorious PETA yuppie who was fishing for compliments on her rich-white-city-girl outfit.) The truth is half the time I'm so cripplingly shy that strangers assume I have a speech impediment, on the rare instance when I get the courage to chat someone up.

Honestly, though? I think it's helped me. There was a time in my life where I felt like I had to be with someone to be happy. While not all the way there, more and more I'm accepting of my singledom and not actively looking. Which, of course, means I'll meet someone relatively soon. Seems it's like the way this shit always works.

Anyway, if you're in love, good for you. If not, well, let's get drunk together.

No work? I hate you.

I was about one of 8 people that showed up on my floor, out of like 100.

Oh, I am now also the owner of a nice half gallon Capitol City growler.

Fuckin' since when do you have a job, you slack motherfucker?

Please tell me the two following things: 1) that growler is full of Imperial Stout, and 2) you were gonna share some with your hombre Matt.

Also, I have to take that shit-ass defensive driving course on Saturday morning, and I'm going to see Die Hunns on Saturday night, but did you want to hang out Friday night? I figured we could watch Idiocracy or that fuckin' Umbrella move or Super Troopers or somethin'. Hit me back, holmes.

I was contacted last Thursday and started Monday.

Sorry to disapoint, the Growler has been empty for a week. I do not know if Cap City still has it on cask, but they had at least 3 different beers from last time when I went in last weekend.
