"The function of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought" - Sir Thomas Beecham

The last two months have been a bit hectic for me. Had a birthday / was kicked out of the house I had been living in for 3 years => found new housing / sold a bunch of shit, packed the rest / moved out / moved in => spent a week with my family ‘off the grid’ on a 42 foot sailboat in Desolation sound / re-acclimated back to civilization / and finally returned back to normal life

A lot happened during this stretch of my life that went unposted on this is not a comp which is a bit unfortunate. The reasons for this are varied and for the most part don’t matter. I was just sort of busy it happens. But one of the main reasons that it happened would be the fact that for the last month I have not had cable or access to the internet at my new house which is pretty lame.

I took having access to the world wide system of tubes that connect everything an everyone for granted and for good reason. It is awesome. But not being connected also has its advantages. I have done a bunch of reading, thinking, walking, been listening to a lot more radio broadcasts of the Seattle Mariners. To be honest, I don’t miss television, but I do miss the internet a bit. I mean I am not completely disconnected, I still had internet on my phone but that is just not the same…

I guess what I am trying to say is that I took it all for granted and not having access forced me to change my default settings during my downtime. Instead getting home and turning on the TV or computer I did other stuff like read a magazine or make sure the house was picked up or just kill time. It was a good wake up call and reminder of what is actually important.

That being said, I now have internet! So let the blogging commence!

Nao vs. A. K. Paul - So Good

   - The internet tells me that A. K. Paul is Jai Paul’s brother but who really knows since it sounds pretty much exactly like a Jai Paul track. Either way, fantastic song right here.

The 64,207 fans in attendance were not disappointed on Sunday night
The Sounders took down the Timbers 2-0 and look basically unbeatable in the process. Its going to be a fun 2nd half to the season for Seattle!

Audrey Morris - How’dja Like to Love Me?

   - This sounds perfect to my ears today. Came across it here

Interpol - All The Rage Back Home

   - To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much out of the upcoming Interpol album but I must say that after hearing this track I am actually looking forward to hearing it. Obviously this is not there best song, but its pretty good. At a minimum it gives me hope that Interpol still have a few great songs left in them.
