September 14, 2006

I was running and listening to the IPOD and all of a sudden it froze in the middle of the song So Long by Pilotdrift which is a 'new' (?) band from Texarkana who my beautiful wife and I are going to see in Austin on September 14, 2006 when they open for the Polyphonic Spree. It's going to be an outside show in the fall in the hill country of Texas (mf)and hopefully the sky will be clear, the music loud, and good feelings, and of course Polyphonic Spree. The music is so powerful; we saw the Spree last year in Ft. Worth over July 4th weekend and it brings goosebumps. The show was in the middle of these woods in a botanical garden and wow! The sky was clear and although it was hot I didn't notice it. So anyways...

I ran 5 miles tonight-I walked the last half-mile fiddling with my frozen IPOD. I have to run with music, there's no other way. Here's what I listened to until the big freeze:

Where's Your Head At-Basement Jaxx
Astronomy Domine-Voivod
Artificial Intelligence-Autechre
Broken Drum-Beck
Golden Path-Flaming Lips w/ the Chemical Bros.
Plainsong-The Cure
Puritania-Dimmu Borgir
So Long-Pilotdrift

Then the cursed freeze. This is what I would have finished with if IPOD played nice:

Cursed Male-Porno For Pyros
Voodoo People-Prodigy and Chemical Bros. (I really like Chem. Bros.)
Starla-Smashing Pumpkins
Push It-Static X

So, 5 miles. Darn it. I have to get new shoes, my shins are starting to ache. I will post pictures of the Spree when the time comes.

Also, My wife and I saw Beck with the Flaming Lips opening and playing as Beck's band. The show was awesome. Beck is such a great musician.
