How are ya?

I’m good, thanks. Weather sucks though.

I actually bought some CDs the other day – first time in forever. Now I seriously can’t get this song out of my head: John Mayer – “Come Back to Bed”. It’s so bad, I actually brought the CD into work and it’s playing on my computer here. I wish I had some type of talent to sing or play guitar or something. “Come Back to Bed” is on his latest CD Heavier Things I picked that up as well as his earlier CD Room for Square I’ve never been a huge fan or anything. I liked the I heard on the radio, just not enough to go buy a CD or listen to more/other stuff. Then I saw him on CMT’s Crossroads and was impressed with what I heard.

I picked up Counting Crows Films About Ghosts too. Partly because I wanted it, partly because I got free shipping for buying another. It’s nice because there’s some previously unreleased stuff on there, as well as a ton of other good songs. And it’s not a “Greatest Hits” at all, it’s subtitled “The best of” which is pretty accurate. Their best stuff didn’t necessarily make the radio. It won’t replace my copies of August and Everything After (which I’ve bought twice – I hardly buy CDs, to buy the same one twice means I really like it. I think I’ve done that maybe 2 or 3 times in my life) or This Desert Life any time soon, but I don’t regret buying it. I hate buying a CD because there’s a good song or two from the person, then you find out the rest of the CD sucks. That’s where MP3s come in handy. If half the CD is ok, I’m happy. I’m thrilled when I find one that is just completely good. That’s rare. The ones I can think of that I can put the CD in, listen start to finish and be happy: August and Everything After, This Desert Life, American Standard, Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy, Sixteen Stone, Flood… there’s probably one or two more, but that’s off the top of my head.

Ok, that’s enough for today – go buy stuff if you want.
