Bizarrely, my dad actually has much of the same taste in music as me. He had Bjork's Medulla, Joanna Newsom's Milk-Eyed Mender, and etc. before I did. (I beat him to some, though, like the Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens, and the New Pornographers.) Anyway, I was just talking to him about how I want to get the new Spoon album Gimme Fiction and he said nonchalantly, "Oh yeah I've had that for a while now." So he's burning me a copy, yay!

It's really nice to be able to play my music loudly on the main speakers and not have it bother anyone...most of the time.

Speaking of the New Pornographers, I've been listening to The Electric Version a lot more lately (I used to mostly listen to Mass Romantic) and I'm obsessed with it! "The Laws Have Changed" is inexpressible--the first song I ever heard by them, so it has a special place in my heart--and I also love "Loose Translation" and "Divine Right." And all them... "Miss Teen Wordpower" should be my theme song...Gimme Fiction should be my theme album.

Sorry for geeking out. More final exams tomorrow--so obviously I'm gonna go waste some time on the internet.

P.S. Right now I'm listening to the Amelie soundtrack--Jesus, the music is actually as amazing as the film.

miss teen wordpower is lovely song
AND
your dad sounds awesome
I mean once my dad expressed his appreciation for iron and wine (well he didn't know what it was)
and he brags about the fact that I like "unusual" music (don't ask)
BUT
for the most part my parents' postion on "the noise" is one ranging from slight to intolerable annoyance (really you'd think they're being tortured!)

oh well.
