Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 5/21/09

Howdy, rockers, your ragged ol' pal from The Metal Minute checking in with stitches out of his head, neck sealed up, baby with tubes inserted in the ears and too much time chained to the office.

Gonna make this one short 'n sweet as we draw close to a three-day weekend where I hope plans I've made will remain thus. In the meantime, bringing things to a rough and stressful close at the finish line work-wise with hopefully some more productivity culminating in my personal life.

Been swooning to Air's hauntingly gorgeous Virgin Suicides score a good bit while keeping things mostly on the heavy side with random deviations. Sad I'm unable to have any reading time with everything going on, but I've been watching the Stanley Cup plus The Three Stooges Volume 1, Dallas Season 9 and of course Monsters of Metal Vol. 6, shred!

I have to make note over the weekend my father passed down to me his turntable and vinyl collection which has a great deal of sixties rock and soul plus some early seventies stuff as well, kewlness. Perfectly in the nick of time this should come into my life as I found the new Sunn O))) album on my doortstep, vinyl version of course. And to think I was only going to have a collector's item!

Keep it hard, friends, but always leave room in your ears for other vibes. It's a short life, so absorb all you can...
