begining to 'learn' my digital camera
also check out some nice NYC winter pics [i hear the snow is hitting every other place in the world real hard] at CatchDubs
and, most importantly, the review of the new PAUL LANSKY album [8.0!] Alphabet Book at PItchfork
we ALL know Paul Lansky as an established pioneer in the field of computer music and other avant-garde stuff. or you at least know him because Radiohead sampled Lansky's "Mild Und Leise," a seventeen minute long computer composed piece from the 70s, in "Idioteque," after Jonny Greenwood found the compilation record it was released on in some random record store in Europe. cool guy.. he actually checked out the Soviet Panda in its previous incarnation at geocities..

I'm having a ton of trouble putting together this top 10 of 2002 list... I've got 8 lined up here in front of me. i cant find anymore from 2002, to be honest. i dont have time or money just to listen to stuff from 2002! sure, the single list will be a snap.. but can anyone burn me blackalicious, beck, hot hot heat, the streets, missy elliott, books, sleater-kinney, and ugly casanova, and give me time to listen to them all? thanks, that would be great.

funniest thing ever is sitting in the library, at a table with a bunch of AP Physics students [geeks], discussing the terrible, terrible innuendo-filled remarks from the latest Bond movie. so hilarious. i haven't seen the movie, but i kind of want to now
we <3 Sonic Youth
of course, like everyone else, they say "the Liars opened" instead of "Liars opened"

soviet panda is back from extended hiatus in MINNEAPOLIS/ST.PAUL AND FARGO. don't ask, mkay?
U of Minnesota seems ok
saw J5 on Letterman; you can tell it's whack when ONLY NU-MARK NEEDS TO COME OUT FOR THE SONG. where is Cut Chemist and that 2 turntablist jive we dig? hm?
the Strokes on Letterman as well. just decent. Julian was unbelievably easy-going. not wild about "Someday" anyway. buy me the Strokes DVD for the holidays, if you live near one of those few stores. I realize that that band is very important to me
like the loser I am, I bought another copy of White Blood Cells just to get the DVD. what can i say, i like the videos, and it was 10 bucks. maybe i'll be 'generous' and give it to someone for the 'holidays'
also went hip-hop and bought El-P's Fantastic Damage ($7.99 booya) and some dope sneakers [they're all black in the back, contrary to what this pic contrives]
Nick at Catchdubs would be proud
just waitin' on that trucker hat...
also had a breakthrough with Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation. good album
and I am still so in love with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Liars. I danced in the car by myself with my headphones
i missed my camera
tomorrow's a work day... piece out
