Welcome to the life and times of this misunderstood genius...

in on the kill taker...

9/3/07 10:38 pm - in on the kill taker...

there has been much happening lately...

to start- today was fugazi day at criminal records, they played fugazi tunes all day to celebrate the 20th anniversary of fugazi's first show...

this pleased me, as sarah and i jaunted over there after work so i could do some record shopping, and record shop i did... i spent 105 bucks between my tips in cash in my pocket, my debit card, and my credit card... i'm a sucker for sweet vinyl pickups... what did i nab up you say?.. why, let me tell you...

on cd- against me!- new wave(deluxe special edition with bonus live show dvd) and,
fugazi- in on the kill taker, which i've long been told their best album...

on vinyl-
the 101ers- elgin avenue breakdown(stummers pre-clash group)
the new pornographers- challengers
the loved ones- keep your heart(for only 9.99, even...)
MC5- back in the u.s.a.

also, for all my purchasing, the criminal records guy gave me a free tote bag and a free elvis costello and modest mouse 7 in....

and due to sarah's new found penchant for hitting up utorrent, i now have the complete lawrence arms discography, complete lifetime discography, social d's greatest hits, silversun pickups- carnavas, and the queers- beat off...

i also have put some of our computer tunes to disc with hum- youd prefer an astronaut and fugazi- 13 songs...

in non music news, car shopping with sarah has begun due to her car being totaled from her accident 2 fridays ago... we spotted a nice 99 saab with sunroof and leather interior for under 5K that she seems to want, its quite nice...

plus, lots of work lately... a couple drivers have quit at jimmy johns, leaving me with a large workload, tips have been quite nice for the most part, though... today sucked however... only 8 stops in 6 hours with a meager 19 dollars in tips coming home...

at midtown bowl lots of changes are going on... we are now, no longer a 24 hour business... 2 guys are no longer working there, one the full time over night guy, he got fired for not showing up to work many times, and an assistant manager is gone for reasons unknown, but, lots of free games had been given out possibly by him, and a shitload of money went missing that could possibly be from one of those two... so, now we are closing at 3am, and my shifts are much more easy for me to handle with my jj's workload, i seem to be doing like 5 or 6pm to 1 or 3am on or around the weekend...

lots of shows coming up this month, that we should be attending, even with my past due electric bill and my absorbantly high phone bill due to calling every customer trying to explain as the only driver, why i'm so late to them...

gotta go to the shows... music is living...

tomorrow brings a busy day of things to do...
