It is 11:32 on Sunday night, and I am working. What is the world coming to? This isn't my life. What have I done to deserve this?

In happier news: I just created a Playlist I called "Uncle Tupelo and Its Progeny". It contains 236 tracks of Uncle Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy, Jay Farrar, Wilco , Son Volt and Loose Fur.

Remember the book that begins: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters." I think that Chapter ends: "Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day." My Playlist is about like that. Upon its completion I looked at my iPod and said, "This is good! Look at what I have created!" I know I didn't actually write the lyrics, or compose any music, or do anything creative, but I did organize some songs that I like into a neat list so I can play them in an order that pleases me.

Three things:

1) If you don't know who those bands/artists are, go look them up and then you can be cool too.

2) I know that screwing around with my iPod and blogging is not really working. So, I am procrastinating. Screw you for judging me.

3) Did that sentence in the Bible begin with the word 'and'? Am I missing something? I thought that was a no-no. You would think a book like the Bible could get the grammar correct. I blame those Gutenberg people.

Okay people. Remember - it is not about who you are on the outside. It is about who you are on the inside.

And I just love it when sentences start with 'and', even if theyre from the bible.

I start sentences with "And" and "But" all the time...I think the rules have been loosened, and I think that's a retroactive decision.

If the Bible does it you know it's cool.

Joie: You are not cool unless you start sentences with 'and'. It is the new Swatch Watch.

Ace: and If there is one thing the Bible is okay with, it is being loose.

Jess: You have to change that picture. I am starting to feel a little gay staring at that man-ass. What if someone walks into my office? What am I going to say? "No, no - It is a picture from a fishing web-site! I am not gay, not that there is anything wrong with that"

I enjoy your replies to the comments as much your blog entries. I am so glad you are back ;)

Thanks Lily - I wasn't sure anyone really enjoyed the blog entries to be honest. It takes me days to write back to the comments because that is how long it takes me to try and think of something funny. As you can see, I only succeed about 10% of the time.

Your love of all things Tupelo makes me want to have your e-babies.
