But even though I am still having fleeting feelings of being socially isolated, for the most part these were banished by the miraculous news I read in the paper this morning - that Chad VanGaalen has had a daughter.
It's no secret that we love Chad VanGaalen here at Zombie Central. Popular opinion is that he is one of the best things about this sometimes infuriating city. And we have had numerous discussions about what an insane world it would be if this musical and artistic genius ever procreated. We never thought it would ever happen, truth be told, as he seems too much of a man-child to be spawning, but now that the unimaginable has actually happened, we are all atwitter at the prospect of perhaps spotting him wandering around downtown with a baby strapped to his chest.
And of course, Chad Van Gaalen also has a new album, Soft Airplane, coming out this week. One of the songs that he has been trying out at concerts for some time now - Willow Tree - has made it onto the album and it sounds pretty wonderful. I cannot wait to hear the others. I strongly encourage you to buy this album as soon as it drops.
In the Lazy Unemployed Bastard files, I have finished compiling my master list of things to accomplish whilst having no purpose in life, and it is alarmingly long. I have, however, managed to scratch a few things off already, and that helps me feel a little less like a boil on the ass of society. I have now also developed a mini list - a mantra of sorts, a
Top Five List of Things I Must Do Daily:
- clean something
- organize something
- learn something
- advance my career
Do you have a Favourite FIve list of daily activites? How about weekly? Or are you more the go with the flow type?
What about your 10 most played songs this week?
You should join me in heading over to John's new blog where we will all fess up to our sometimes questionable listening habits. I'm heading over there right after I take the Resident Offspring shopping for supplies for Art class. You know, those ones that aren't covered by the $65.00 art supply fee.
