I Can Live With This

Singles get tougher and tougher for me every year as I retreat further and further into a netherworld of moldy oldies. My new year's resolution is to see what the kids are up to. More Fuse, MTV, VH1, BET, and CMT. I will report back later. When I lived in Philly I just sort of inhaled pop and rap and the like cuz it was everywhere and I bought a fair share of it as well. Living in the sticks makes it easier to succumb to the cave-like jugband haze that so many of my hipster elders have found themselves enjoying. I bought that Fiery Furnaces album for Maria thinking it would be her kind of thing, and it turns out that it is really really my kind of thing. I'm in with the in crowd when it comes to that album. I'm a little addicted to it. Anyway:

Hey Scott,

I'm so glad you have a blog now! I hear tons of pop and rap working at the record store but there's tons of indie crap I don't care about, so for me, it's about finding the middle ground and finding stuff that is fun.

Hi Sara! Happy New Year! Yeah, I just find that it gets easier and easier for me to forget the "real" world and what is going on here and now. I don't really want that to happen. I want to remain engaged with the wide and wild pop universe.

Correction: I bought that Fiery Furnaces for myself. Sometimes I make music purchases too!
