I believe I mentioned that my cd's were all ganked from my car a while ago. I still haven't caught the bastards, although I have some ideas, and I'll make those fuckers eat my "Cabaret" cd in very small pieces if I ever get the chance.

In the interim, I've tried several internet music services. The free ptp ones gave me digital herpes; more bugs than I care to try to erase every day. The pay ones not only cost money, they generally suck. I now have a bunch of mp3s on my pc I can't play because I got tired of paying for the rights to them on a daily basis.

I'm trying streaming. Right now, I have Punk Radio playing. They play an awful lot of stuff I don't like, but it's better than silence, and I maintain hope that I'll find the Next Great Thing there. Too much whining.

When I get bored with that, I put on radiopower's punk 45. Classic punk, much more my style. Good stuff.

That's what a very little research has yielded; when I do find that Next Great Thing I'll be sure to share it. Until then, other suggestions are welcome.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
