"It's all that T.V. - oh, and I got addicted to oxycodone"

Last summer I burned through all four seasons of Lost and have been waiting patiently for #5 to begin, which happened last night. Living in the future and relying on the internet, I'm just about to sit down to the first episode now.

But first I came across this rather funny (to show geeks like myself) YouTube clip, Previously On Lost:

Over a year after I signed up at the encouragement of my roommate Allison, I'm just now starting to appreciate the pull of

I've got Amarok set up to auto-update the music I listen to on my computer, which I'm sure can be done from most popular media players - hell, if Songbird can do it, iTunes or WinAmp must be able to.

2009, and onwards

SO! ... Happy New Years, says the man on the 14th.

After a low-key Christmas with a group of Americans and Colombians, I spent New Years playing three different shows at two venues in Prenzlauer Berg. The first, at Zu Mia Oder Zu Dia, was a bust due to a lack of items for me to hit. The next two, both at Intersoup, were much more succesful. The first set consisted of originals while the second was mostly covers (which we rehearsed once, in a flat, with a blanket over the drumset) and a few of our own that were left-out in the first set.

Between the two sets, my four couchsurfers showed up with a gift of cake for me. Part of the reason I waited to write about the night was that I had to wait for Julien to email me my only memento of the evening.

Et .... voila:

My guess is this photo was taken around 4 am. We wound up playing until roughly 5:30, and a few friends came by around 6. All in all, the night went to day and I came in from the cold at 9:30. To the best of my knowledge, that's the latest I've ever partied on NY's. What's next after the party's done? Perhaps at my age, I get the best of both worlds, because I wasn't tired, yet had no problem surrendering to sobriety.
