Positive Bleeding

Urge Overkill are coming back. If nothing else, they’ve got one of the best band names ever. I had a copy of Saturation back in high school… I think I liked it? “Sister Havana” had a great riff, if I recall. Man, this takes me back… now I want to hear the record again.

Secretary was one of the strangest… I don’t even know what you’d call it – a romantic comedy? That I have ever seen. Unconventional, to say the least. And speaking of unconventional, Maggie Gyllenhaal is cute in a very odd sort of way that I can’t quite put my finger on.

The season premiere of 24 airs tonight! The phone will be getting unplugged from 9pm to 10pm this week and every following week until the end of May (at least every week there’s a new episode). Want a sneak preview? Read this, or if you don’t, just read this excerpt:

“…more importantly Jack has a new tattoo and several dark secrets.”

NEW TATTOO?!? My God, they actually read viewer mail and take suggestions from the fans! My existance feels validated somehow.

My Belle & Sebastian tickets are now in the city under the tender ministrations of UPS. Mayhap they’ll be in my mailbox tonight? While I hate UPS with a passion, it sure is fun to track packages on their website.

    Which reminds me… I asked about the B&S tickets a while ago, and thanks again for the link to the page that sold the early release tickets, but I ended up waiting for ticketmaster: the shipping costs were about half of the ticket price, and I was only buying one ticket, so I went with ticketmaster, ended up sitting only a few rows behind where I would have sat with the other ticket, paid less, and picked my ticket up in person at the ticketmaster thing in sunrise records!

    i know nothing of the new 24 season and am glad i don’t. happy to see someone else will be unplugging the phone between 9 and 10 :)

    and that fuckin line about a new tatoo and dark secrets got m rile up and excited about tonight’s premiere. lol

    Maybe the dark secret is WHERE the tattoo is?

    "Oh man, I was out with some army buddies… and we got drunk…"

    we’re just about 13 minutes away from the premiere and i don’t wanna know anything else about this season, but — the only kind of tatoo that would freak me out, as a fan, would a snake tatoo on the inside of the forearm.

    but even with that, i’m sure there’d have to be something more to it than just a tatoo.

    damn! lol

    have a great season premiere, and please make your thoughts known :)

    that is incredibly badass that urge is reuniting. they’re totally voltron.

    "exit the dragon", the follow-up to "saturation" is quality too. totally underrated.

    frank – i love your blog. i may not read it regularly, but i do read it.

    curious though, what makes it v5.0?

    the search feature is nice.

    did you write it?

    nope, all blogging functions are handled through the Nucleus CMS. I thought about rolling my own but this one works quite well and I’m lazy.
