It's amazing how a single event can totally change one's mood. Today's been a Good Day. I'm listening to Weezer (cuing most of their early songs into Winamp and hitting shuffle), taking me back to my early high school days, while I'm cleaning up my room, and thinking about watching Shaun of the Dead, in preparation of Hot Fuzz's (limited) US release on April 20, I believe (please come to Iowa City, pretty please?!?!?). How can the day get better? By buying some books (Catcher in the Rye [to replace two copies that I can't seem to place right now, but you can't have too many copies of this book, can you?], a collection of stories edited by Nick Hornby called Speaking With the Angel [featuring stories by Hornby, Dave Eggers, Zadie Smith, Irvine Welsh, and many others], and Beneath the Wheel by Herman Hesse), and spending some time at the Java House, reading and talking with friends. To say the least. But anyways, "Buddy Holly" is playing right now, and I gotta get ready for an air-guitar solo. until later. . .
