04:55 pm - Woah -- I'm done with work.
Holy sack, I've had a productive day. No, really. I'm so caught up at work that... well, I'm actually genuinely really truly caught up. That doesn't happen. Last week when my boss moved two people to another department, some of the menial duties got redistributed. These duties are now assigned more logically and this will free me of (about) three hours of work totally unrelated to my job.

I'm reasonably thrilled.

I should be organizing my desk or something like that, but posting to my livejournal is more fun. I don't have anything special to talk about though, and I have to be here until 5:00 for phone coverage, so I'm going to ramble about Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, the new Tears For Fears album. Has anybody heard this yet? No, of course you haven't -- it's not out until September 14th. I've heard it though, and it's remarkably good. I don't even like Tears For Fears.

Everybody Loves a Happy Ending is the first colaboration between Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal since Smith left the group in 1989, and it has this very neo-psychadellic sound. Sort of the same over-produced, grandiose style The Beatles were using during the second half of their career. Actually, a lot of Beatles influence can be heard on this album, but that's not a bad thing (unless you think music can't be brilliant without being groundbreaking). You can hear the first single off the album, Call Me Mellow, on their exceptionally Flash-intensive site. Definitely will have to pick this one up when it comes out.

Also went to PrePlayed today, and discovered that seventeen bucks will get you copies of Mike Oldfield's Five Miles Out and the soundtracks to Singin' In the Rain and The Good the Bad and the Ugly. Quit snickering -- they're good.

I won't snicker; I have the soundtrack to Disturbing Behavior. The soundtrack is MUCH better than the movie even though it doesn't have Harvey Danger's one hit.

Soundtrack to Disturbing Behavior better than the movie? I don't remember the soundtrack, but that wouldn't be hard.

It's a collection of no-name bands playing a somewhat random selection of good songs. If you're curious, I could play it for you.

It has been so long since I have talked to you! How've you been? I randomly ran into you on live journal and had to check out your new website. It was nice to have a laugh-out-loud moment when I saw the Quazarin website. It was just fun to look at your old cute pictures and remember choir and the pops concerts and stuff. awww. Anyway - you won't believe this, but Matthew Rose (kestin) and I got married this last year! Maybe you know that already. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi. I hope you are doing well - I added you to my friends list - please feel free to add me!

Hey, Jen! Good to hear from you! I'd heard that the two of you married -- in fact, you e-mailed me about it, I'm just really bad at keeping in touch with people. Anyway, congratulations to the two of you, hope all is well (it sounds as though it is), etc.! Been missing things like Quazarin lately, and have considered forming another group, but it's difficult lack of practice has made everyone I know into a bass. Oh, well, I still have memories, right? Anyway, I've added you to my list.
