After work last night I headed out to Harvard Square to see a free, in-store performance by Nobukazu Takemura at Other Music. I hadn’t heard of this artist before, but what I heard was pretty good. I met up with some friends there and we went to eat some Indian food after the in-store. I bought a few used CDs and singles in addition to the Tool and Weezer cd’s:
- Squarepusher – My Red Hot Car (CD Single)
- Autechre – Confield
- Coil presents Black Light District
- Matmos – A Chance to Cut is a Chance to Cure
I got a great deal on all of them, but all in all I spent way too much on CDs yesterday… Give me a break though, I have been utterly poor since October. :) For a change I am not leeching money off of my parents, so I needed to celebrate payday somehow.
So far I have given a first listen to the Tool, Weezer, Squarepusher, Matmos discs (I already had a dub of the Coil disc), and I am not disappointed with any of my purchases. I am listening to the Autechre disc now, and so far it seems pretty good.
I went to bed rather early last night, but I didn’t sleep well the night before, so I guess that can be explained. It is raining today, which isn’t that bad, because the air-conditioning is still not working right here at work (although there are some HVAC guys here as I write this), so cool days are appreciated… I am actually working on important stuff at work finally, which is a good thing, although I am still in a little bit over my head as far as catching up to this code base goes. It will take a few days to figure out how this all fits together yet.

So how is the new Weezer album?
Definately worth a purchase… I was a smidge disappointed with it’s length (just under 30 minutes), but in the Weezer spectrum it lies between the blue album and pinkerton…
Of course, it is good because they brought back Ric Ocasek back as producer.. :)
