Veterans should be a thing of the past.

Random post about music, for once

I just read that Beth Orton’s new record, the Comfort of Strangers, is being produced by Jim O’Rourke. O’Rourke is the genius who produced Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which you guys know is the closest thing to a religious experience that I’ve ever had. That alone makes this record worth buying sound unheard. As soon as I get some money. When that Nigerian banker pulls through for me.

Anyhow, I saw this on Music for Robots, where you can also find a link to the first video from the record, which features faux-Muppets playing musical instruments and being generally creepy. Highly recommended.

Your prayers are answered

If you’re like me and lay awake at night wondering if the hyphens in the paper you turned in that day are being used correctly, then you’re going to sleep like a goddamned baby that got into Mom’s Valium supply tonight:


That would probably be a funnier lead-in if it wasn’t true.
