bringing the noise

sense :: smell // car exhaust

It was a nice weekend. The sunsets in PA where Raevyn‘s mom and friends live are absolutely gorgeous, and it’s always a trip to get together with the people up there and hang out. We used to see them far more often than we do now, but man, definitely miss you guys-it’s always a blast. My only regret was that I had to drive Saturday night, otherwise I would have had a few more drinks. As it was, the fries and the couple of guinesses I had early in the night were more than appropriate homage to the spirit of the evening. Happy birthday, Lauren!

So I just picked up a few new CDs; this tidbit I had the privilege of hearing at Tim and Brooke‘s Crush Party back in February by the Avalanches called Since I Left You, Untitled by the Benjamin Gate, that I’d been digging over at Pandora, Essence, by A Guy Called Gerald, for my atmospheric jungle kick, and Madonna’s new digs, just for old time’s sake.

I also figured that Geek Mafia would make for a brilliant addition to my reading list. I’ve been looking for something to read that wasn’t a series of some kind, and I think this’ll fit nicely.

In other news, this morning I happened on this dial scan of the radio on the night that John Lennon was murdered; it’s definitely an interesting way to look at history, even though it was what, all of 26 years ago? Definitely interesting to hear.

In other news, Spirit has lost the use of one of it’s wheels! Keep on, mighty rover! Keep on! For science!

    re: Spirit

    Hmmm. I may be able to help NASA with this. kurii had a remote controlled space vehicle that frequently had problems with one of the wheels. I must email and ask if they have looked for carpet fibers in the axels. Easily removed with craft scissors and tweezers.

    ::giggle:: Sounds like someone missed their calling as an aerospace engineer! 🙂

    […] So, a while back I mentioned that Spirit had lost a wheel. Luckily, NASA engineers managed to find shelter for the winter in something of a last-minute diversion. I swear, everything involving those two rovers is dramatic and exciting. […]
