he's a martyr with a wide rope

i've been awfully bored lately. my music has gotten boring, my workout routine has gotten boring, the tv shows i like have gotten boring: things just aren't that interesting around here. i started last week digging up my old music and reliving the first few years of architecture school. pavement's 'i need to sleep' was practically my theme song during de noble's studio in second year. i would listen to it over and over again while building models well into the night.

speaking of, err, i mean not to change the subject completely, but i've got a little beef with this whole 'being married' thing. it's great, don't get me wrong, but our methods of listening to music totally clash, and his is wrong. there's a right way and a wrong way to listen to music, and mine is right (of course). michael INSISTS on always listening to music IN ORDER. he wants to listen to a CD from the very first song to the very last song, and doesn't like listening to it if even one song has a skip or something. before itunes, he didn't even like to listen to burnt cd's. GET OVER IT, HONEY. i, for one, like to listen to the same song over and over and over again. i could listen to the same song 15 times if it's what i was in the mood for. also, my itunes and ipod are ALWAYS on shuffle (that is, if it isn't on repeat to hear the same song over and over and over again); i rarely ever listen to a cd all the way through (who has the patience for that?).

i listened to this song about 20 times while cleaning the kitchen a few days ago (yes, it took me about an hour to clean the kitchen, and no, michael wasn't home. do you really think he would have let me listen to a song that many times? or clean the kitchen for an hour without trying to distract me?).

itunes will be the death of the concept album. you see, good cds are created with the intent to take the listener on a journey. with some cds, it doesn't matter if you pick and choose songs. if that's the case, then the cd is likely not very good. i mean, come on...how can you listen to songs from a cd like 'in the aeroplane over the sea' by neutral milk hotel without listening to them together and in order?
