Album listened to this morning:
Further Seems Forever Hide Nothing

Still chilly with a temp of about 54 degrees. Today's high is supposed to be in the 80s.

The has a couple of descriptions of the upcoming Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith trailer. Sounds crazy, but I just peeked a little at the first couple of lines and then stopped. I've decided that I want to see this movie not knowing anything more than I already know about it (the Anakin and Obi-Wan fight, Anakin becoming Darth Vader and Luke and Leia are separated at birth). Why? I read so much about Episode II before it came out that it kind of spoiled a lot of surprises for me.

Yesterday I bought four bags of candy for Halloween. Two bags of Snickers Crunch, one bag of Reese's and one bag of Smarties. Hopefully the neighborhood kids will enjoy and I don't think we'll have problems eating whatever we don't give out.

Splendid has a very nice review of Mission Label's Demons and Rare Meat compilation. First it was a profile in Inner View, then a one-sentence mention in Pitchfork and now this. The good word is getting out. has this article on Jon Brion on his work on film scores. If the name sounds familiar, look on the back of the Magnolia soundtrack and Aimee Mann's Bachelor No. 2 for starters.
