Just to give you an idea

Of what I think a fun birthday haul is:

  • Pictures that Tick by Dave McKean, purchased direct from Allen Spiegel Fine Arts awhile back.
  • Meeting People is Easy – A film by Grant Lee about Radiohead
  • Replay – Bark Psychosis
  • Heroes – David Bowie
  • Comets on Fire – Comets on Fire
  • Acid Mothers Temple and the Cosmic Inferno – Just Another Band from the Cosmic Inferno
  • Bardo Pond + Tom Carter – 4/23/03
  • Special Low Frequency Version – Earth (2)

Of course, the best part of it was a night with my wife minus the kids. The wonders of going to a restaurant and not having to keep a hyperkinetic toddler entertained and in her chair for just TWO MINUTES TO MAKE A MENU SELECTION GOD PLEASE really trumped anything else I received.
Oh yeah, the battling T-Rex toy (think Rock’em Sock’em Robots with dinosaurs and electronic sound) will be used to settle household conflicts via proxy violence for years to come!

  • Is that Comets On Fire good? I’ve been wanting to check it out, but I’m a bit weary.

  • I’m listening to it right now, and it’s like the unholy love child of Blue Cheer and Led Zeppelin and the MC5 and the Jesus and Mary Chain. Or something.
    Pretty good, but it’s not going to win you many new friends. Unless they’re freaks, that is.
