I am too tired to sleep, which is a problem that has been troubling me lately. I'm just kind of restless as a general rule and I'm having a difficult time listening to songs that are over three minutes long.
Even my new stuff does not excite me so much. For example, I got new CDs by Nicky Click
and Die Cheerleader
in the mail today--both of which I was looking forward to hearing, but I just cannot focus for long enough to listen to them.
Weird. I listen to the most music now when I am at work. I am one of those lucky people that can bring my iPod to work and listen to whatever. I did have a resident complain after being subjected to Wesley Willis
in my car though. And a particularly agitating resident asked me if Sonic Youth
have designed their music to be as agitating as possible. I guess it is probably plausible, but I don't think it is the actual case.
If any Elvis Costello
fans can tell me why no one seems to like Mighty Like a Rose
, I would appreciate it. …
