This is just to say that I am enjoying the new Decemberists album quite a bit, even though I’m used to more songs about stabbing and murder from them. Did they go on antidepressants? The Crane Wife is one of my “desert island” albums, but this is pretty good. “January Hymn” is sad in just the right way, and “Rox in the Box” is pleasantly earwormy. I need to listen a few more times before everything gels.
This is also an experiment with an open thread. I’ve got a bunch of questions in my mailbox about Facebook and the whole process of “friending” and “unfriending” that I’m not quite ready to answer yet. I feel a rant coming on about how despite appearances not everyone in your life is allowed to play in your sandbox all the time, but I need to sleep on it.
