Where You At?

What's going on around here

So, where are we now?

I'm back from vacation. I have a new computer. We're really down to one problem... the new computer is set up for SATA hard drives, the old one had an IDE hard drives.

What _that_ means is that all my music is stuck on my other hard drive. Yes, I could just load everything back onto the new machine manually, but I'm holding out hope that there's an easier way (and yes, if I were smarter I would have thought of this before I bought the new machine, then again, if I were smart I wouldn't need a new machine at all.)

Moral of the story: we're close, but not quite back yet.

Hey, here's something about music! If The Swell Season come to your town and you like great music and hilarious Irish-accented story telling you must go see them. If you saw the movie Once, you already know how awesome the music will be, but the concert experience part was also outstanding. Glen Hansard is a madman (in the good way) and Marketa Irglova is just as charming on stage as she was in the movie. Also, she's 20! Are you fucking kidding me? 20?!?! Yes, she looks young, but 20?!?! Fuck me. I need another shot at my entire 20s and her 20s just started.

Ahem. Sorry. Anywho, if they come to your town: GO!

These people had much better seats than we did (at a completely different show:)

from Hurt to I'll Fly Away

Day 702, Session 129:
Thursday May 22nd - Pounding the pavement on the post office route.
First song: Hurt by Johnny Cash
Last full song: I'll Fly Away by Alison Krauss & Gillian Welch
Progress: 2018-2025 of 5870
Total Songs Heard: 1636

Hurt. I hurt my computer today. Ok, technically it was a few days ago. The important thing for everyone to know is that you shouldn't try to upgrade your computer unless you're sure you know what you're doing.

I did not.

I ended up bricking (see definition 4, try to avoid the other definitions) my machine.

I am an idiot.

My computer is in the shop. I'm hoping it can be saved. (Processors can be replaced right?)

First I can't post songs the way I like anymore, now my whole computer is dead. Bad blogging times.

Speaking of the music not posting right anymore... I need to ask: Is the music I post here important? Do you listen? Cause if you don't, I suppose I shouldn't worry about it, but if you do I need to find a new way to do it. Obviously I have all the songs already, so I don't need it, but I like the idea of sharing. So, vote in the poll and you can help determine the future direction of this here blog dealee.

Not sure when the 'puter will be back, but I do know that posting will be sparse until it comes back (I've hijacked the wife's work laptop for this entry.) Thanks for stopping by, hopefully I'll be back at full strength soon.
