I have a few ideas I really like right now but unfortunately NONE of them have anything to do with my assignments and tight deadlines. BOO HISS

I should never ever run for office because I can't even keep BLOG PROMISES.

That epic Panda post from December I promised?

Reviews of Everything I own?

The Ginger Ale Criteria Rubric?

All mere floating cherubs in my head, dancing around without any portal for literal externalization.

I'll try to get on that soon.

In other news, I have been listening to a lot of Portishead. I never listened to them before and remember a few songs from various radios but like them a lot, and totally can't stop thinking about a review/article that talked about how they sound like Spy movie soundtracks.
They are also recluses, like Mr. McCarthy above; their lead singer has never done an interview, and they haven't done anything since like, 1997. Reclusion always earns big points in my book.

Also, I've been listening to that Hercules and Love Affair cd, and while it's not as consistent or mindblowing as I expected/ Pitchfork scored it, I think this is the song of the year for me right now.

"Iris" - Hercules and Love Affair

Ginger Ale criteria is a subject in genuine need of elucidation—once one has had real "ginger" ale, I feel like the airplane/complimentary beverage variety fails to live up to the taste
