long time, no bones.

well, about a months' worth of sickness and two weeks without a computer have contributed to my ridiculously pitiful procrastination here. thankfully, i am almost recovered and my poor laptop has (finally) come back healthy from the Apple Fix-It Headquarters, Inc., and i am ready to rebound with more useless posting.

randomness in the form of a numerical list:
1. awesome bands i have seen live in the past month include (but are not limited to): Cheer Accident, Team Dresch (reunion show of sorts for the Estrojam Festival), Bobby Conn, Detholz!, Om, Screaming Yellow Zonkers, Mastodon.
2. awesome shows i have missed due to sickness, lack of money, or other factors: Winepress/Mushaganas reunion, Pissed Jeans, Grizzly Bear, Sweet Cobra, Zombi/Supersystem.
3. for feminist-y types who have torrid love affairs with Pop Culture, i highly recommend buying/borrowing/renting/netflixing the "Roseanne" DVD sets (seasons 1-5 are currently available). this being my favorite sitcom of all time, i have slowly been acquiring these collections, and watching the episodes as an 'adult' is a completely interesting and worthwhile experience. i'm beginning to regret not writing my undergraduate thesis on the subject of "'Roseanne' as Pivotal Mainstream Television" via feminist critique (rather than the subject of "Riot Grrrl as Pivotal Subcultural Movement"....yawnz).
4. all i want to listen to as of late is modern classical/composition: Erik Satie, Gorecki, Debussy, Bela Bartok, Penderecki, John Cage, Charles Ives, etc.
5. and also, the greatly underappreciated Ut, whose classic albums "Griller" and "In Gut's House" have finally been reissued by Mute/Blast First. this trio of ladies began on the tail-end of the New York No Wave scene, never got much recognition in the States, moved to London, and didn't get much recognition there, either. sad, because these albums are chock-full of weirdly abrasive, jagged, no-wavey artpunk. "Griller" was produced by Albini, too. check it out if you like Lilliput or Bikini Kill or anything in between.
