Please Drive Faster

Songs in my head:
"Please Drive Faster" by Braid
"Shake Me, Wake Me (When It's Over)" by the Four Tops
"Sister Surround" by the Soundtrack of Our Lives

Did a little research and found out the two people in my dream are not married in real life. I just don't understand why these people turned up in a dream. I had not seen either one in years. So this is what having sinus congestion does to your brain . . .

I picked this up last night just for the At the Drive-In performance. There are a lot of great bands and performances on here (Ash and Foo Fighters especially pop out), but seeing "One Armed Scissor" is a great reminder as to why this band was just so incredible. I already jotted some notes in paragraph form last night . . .

We saw The John Sparrow again last night. The Shapes opened with a mostly acoustic set since Chuck couldn't play with them, but it was a nice alternate view. TJS kicked a lot of ass and even more than last weekend's performance. I was right up at front and the feeling/danger/excitement of possibly being hit by a mic stand or a guitar tuning peg was in full effect. In other words, I had a very good time.

Ian Curtis' life will be made into a movie, reports the NME. Start hedging your bets as to who could play him . . .

This guy is the new Lex Luthor for the upcoming Superman movie. Start imagining him without hair. . .

Rumor has it Jude Law is being considered to play Ian Curtis. After all, he did star in "Closer."

Why not Josh Groban? I mean, his last record was called Closer. . .
