Is Ray Davies a Genius? Yes.

Music on CD

See my Friends by Ray Davies. Ray Davies re-records several of his songs with other acts. Including: Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Black Francis, Alex Chilton.

Paper Airplane by Alison Krauss and Union Station. I think I mentioned before that Krauss and I were in the same high school graduation class. I still have no recollection of Krauss aside from that time in the lunchroom when she gave the bird to a friend of mine. I think she spent a lot of time away from school fiddling.

Philharmonics by Agnes Obel. I embedded a song by this gal before. Here it is again. This CD has to go back to processing because the spine label reads "Anges".

Complete Hit Singles by Three Dog Night. Our last copy broke.

Halcyon Digest by Deerhunter. No idea who these guys are. I have not even heard the following song, I'm just sticking it into the post. This also has to be reprocessed; the spine reads "Have You Digest".

Collapse Into Now by R.E.M.

Lullaby by Celtic Women. More singing by Irish chicks.


Bel-Air Dead by Ghost Writer [Stuart Woods].


How They Croaked: the awful ends of the awfully famous by Georgia Bragg. Edgar Allen Poe did not die in the gutter? He died in a hospital? Possibly of rabies? I am shattered. Shadoobie.

More Minor Repairs

Book Drop

The book drop had some water on the inside. I used silicone sealant on a few very small openings. I think someone did not put a book all the way in, the drawer stuck open, and rain blew in. But, I used the sealant anyway.

Witches, Vampires, Stuttering, Ghosts, Hungry Dogu


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One starring [You know already]. Harry Potter battles evil witches.

Eclipse starring [Heartthrobs]. Don't watch it. Don't. Save yourself.

King's Speech starring [English and Australians]. Morrissey has much to say on this. "Actually I despise royalty. I always have done. It's fairy story nonsense. The very idea of their existence in these days when people are dying daily because they don't have enough money to operate one's radiator in the house, to me is immoral. As far as I can see, money spent on royalty is money burnt." Don't forget Morrissey's lyrics to this one.

Juvenile DVD

Scooby-Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster starring [unknown actors]. Another live action Scooby-Doo movie. The animated flicks are crazy popular here.

Tron Legacy starring Bruce Boxleitner and Jeff Bridges. I still cannot understand why someone paid to remake/revisit such an awful movie.

Yogi Bear starring Tom Cavanagh and [voices]. Cartoon bear causes trouble while stealing pic-a-nic baskets.

Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader starring [kids]. Some animated lion tells kids to be heroic.

Aloha Scooby-Doo! starring [voice actors]. Scooby-Doo travels to Hawaii. Does Scooby-Doo travel inside the cabin or in a dog cage?

Young Adult

Spendor by Anna Godbersen. Romance? Girl on cover is wearing purple dress with a really long train.

Swoon by Nina Malkin. Looks like another vampire thing. Let me check. Nope a mean girls, boarding school, ghost inhabiting lead character novel.
