Hey kids, I'm splitting up the "Syntax Eros" and the "House of Chicken & Waffles" imminently. But don't let this frighten you. Let it liberate you. You will now get TWO times the J-Ro!! This site will remain the quasi-journal/rambling-when-I'm-not-sleeping kinda thing it already is, while the new and removed HoC&W will be a positing grounds for the fertilizer that is my bread & butter, which sounds disgusting, I know, but more unfortunate than it sounds like it tastes is the fact that I don't make any bread from this stuff yet. Maybe someday soon. Who knows? Do you? How come you know if I don't? No fair! Where was I? Oh yes, the newly-former Siamese Twin of this site, the "House of Chicken & Waffles" will be THE place to find my book excerpts, pointless short stories and random refuse (miscellaneous debris being an overused term these days, as it were), so feel free to pay it a visit from time to time. I will plan on updating it on an almost daily basis, filling it with lots of stuff from journals and notebooks past. Some of these will be things you have read already, but maybe not. Depends on who you are. Seems to be a problem with the new site at the moment, but I will try dealing with it tomorrow.

n.p. Sondre Lerche - "Faces Down" CD (I like it, kinda like a Norwegian version of "Destroyer" (the project of Dan Bejar, not the KISS album), I guess Bergen is the new Seattle, or the now Omaha, hee hee).

It's 8:56am now, and I wish I understood HTML just a teensy bit. I feel stupid. Laugh at me now, if you must.
8:59. damn damn damn.

n.p. Bionic Finger "Starfish"
Sunday Morning 8:18. Not a bad idea for a concept record of all songs recorded on Sunday mornings only. If I did that, though, it would sound like crap when it came to the singing. I never have a voice at 8am. My voice is great when it works, but it only seems to work between the hours of 11am - 5am, or thereabouts. Sometimes it takes holiday hours. Maybe if this "cold" ever goes away, I'll get more usage out of it. But at least I've been cutting down the number of longer car journeys screaming along to a way-too loud stereo.

I got home at 7:25, and within five minutes, Matt was on his way to work. The only thing that sucks about this new job of mine is that I've seen my brother very little since Monday. He opens Sunday and Monday, and closes Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I saw him for a bit Sunday, not at all on Monday or Tuesday, saw him a bit Wednesday, before I went to WUSB to hang with Paul, Will & Adam and talk about stuff you shouldn't talk about on the radio while on the radio. I dunno. You get the idea. It's nice to actually see him once in a while. Thinking of going by myself to see a matinee of The Two Towers on Monday. I mean, I've read the books, so it doesn't matter that I haven't seen all of The Fellowship of the Ring yet. Gotta borrow that from someone, though. At least two of my friends have that on DVD. At LEAST two. I'm not saying all my friends are geeks, but they do hang out with me. 'nuff said. Guess I should go to bed now, true believers.

n.p. Billy Bragg "Everywhere"
