this is my new thing. i bought this at value village for my friend who collects environments records, but he already has it, so i'm starting my collection of "totally new concepts in sound."

side 1: "the psychologically ultimate thunderstorm" and side 2: "gentle rain in a pine forest (synthetic silence)"

my housemate informs me that he saw a swamps one at the thrift store, so i need to go obtain that soon, assuming that no one else will nab it.

the quotes in praise of them may be the best part.

"the speakers seem to be dripping." "psychoacoustic magic."
click on the picture and read the descriptions if you so desire. they're pretty great.

i hope to add this one to my collection soon. it may be the best cover for an album of pacific ocean and caribbean lagoon

and now, just for good measure:

so I appear to be creating a blog... mostly, i think, because I am sick of the facebook and i need a new way to waste a whole lot of time.

i figured this might be a good time to start a blog. i just moved into a new house. and i feel like things are taking new, positive directions. so maybe this is a good thing to write about.

::hang on, i'm checking how much it is to buy a pool table on craigslist::

so this house i'm living in..
i moved in a few weeks ago, and this house is awesome because:
1. we have a side porch with christmas lights
2. we have large windows that let in lovely sunlight and offer good views of blizzards
3. we have a corner brick fireplace
4. we have a black & white tile floor kitchen and a fridge that is raised up on a pedestal
5. there is always a steady supply of natty boh and schlitz in the beer fridge
6. we have french presses with excellent coffee going most of the time
7. we are equi-distant from 2 awesome value village thrift stores
8. we play danish dice games
9. we come up with moose jokes

so there approximately 9 things.
oh! we have a foosball table. 10.
"we" is the 6 of us who live here, as well as our frequent visitors/faux housemates.

so here it is. this is the beginning.

i'm watching curling.
