What's Wang This Week

How can it be so hard to track down the Arcade Fire's album? I've gone to three different places and none of them have the damn thing. If I promise, cross my heart &c. to buy the album, can I listen to MP3s guilt free?

On second thought, I don't care that much.

I think I am addicted to Minesweeper Flags. Ordinarily I might crack some joke about how I could stop playing anytime I wanted but I'm starting to realize that no, I probably couldn't. What does it take to get a fuckin' intervention around here? I'm in dire need. Or at least play me.

I'm also completely in love with the new Mac mini. Isn't it cool? (I am such a dork.) Speaking of lusting after material goods, I'm considering getting one of those Arc'teryx jackets Jowen drools over so as to keep warm as well as dry. Maybe I'll get the fog coloured one, just so that Jowen will envy me.

Dennis Quaid wore a "Vote for Pedro" T-shirt on the Daily Show today. I wonder if he found the link on this blog. I sure hope so.

I once said that I am inspired to write music by bands that I hate, because I'm convinced I could do better than them. I'm now noticing that really great music has the opposite effect. Rather than spending my time trying to come up with something I'm convinced wouldn't be as good as it, I could just listen to it. Maybe I should pick up some Avril Lavigne albums, and some Three Doors Down or something. Not sure whether or not to try getting some Nickelback, as I'm having enough trouble keeping food down these days since the Great Elvis Platter Encounter of '05.

Then again, I just bought another Ron Sexsmith CD... I'll do it later.

I already envy you.

I know for a fact that Trevor Tuminski - the lead singer of Jet Set Satellite - has visited my website. He said it was good.

Still waiting for it. Let's all pick it up.
