happy mannequin, happy

In the last few months, I've rediscovered music.

I realize that might not be particularly meaningful, but I'm not sure I quite understand what changed. I'm buying a lot more CDs now than I ever did, I'm up on current and past bands, I'm reading Spin, and I'm enjoying a lot more current music than I used to. Collapse )

Revelation

In my previous entry -- the one about discovering good music again -- I alluded to an entry I never got around to making because I didn't think I could explain it. I still don't think I can, but it was and still is a really big thing, so I'll do what I can to convey it.

I'm not sure if you should read this entry first and then the previous one, or vice versa, or if they really have anything to do with each other at all other than both being about me un-reinventing myself, but I'm sure you'll figure it out. Or not, as the case may be. Perhaps that's a feature.

Anyhow, right after my little revelation I was trying to explain it to substitute on IRC. I don't think I succeeded, but that's as close as I could come, so here's what happened then.

Yay, I finished my christmas shopping! This is way early for me. I'm usually starting about now, and finishing about noon on the 24th, and by "usually" I mean "every year before this one", so I'm feeling particularly proud of myself. And while not everything I found made me go "Yay, this is PERFECT!", I don't feel like I took the easy way out for anyone. Whee!
