New CD purchases:
Relient K, Mmhmm

Not as poppy and adolescent as past releases. I've only given it a listen or too. It has some good moments though.

Lovedrug, Pretend You're Alive

Picked this up when I was getting the U2 disc. Listened to it once and liked it.

But everything's gonna take a back seat to U2 right now :)

I've been playing a new game. Dark Throne is a MMORPG. Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game that is. Basically, you get your population, train some to be soldiers, others are guards, others are miners, etc. And you fight battles, mine gold, make money, fortify your camp, build your army, create alliances, etc. Even if you're not interested, click my link, because it will help me gain more population.

so I watched Weird Al'sUHF last night with friends.

So I've seen it eleventy billion times, it's still dang funny. If you can find a copy, hold on to it!

Badgers? We don't need no stinkin' badgers!

Ok, so the plot's pretty weak. Weird Al gets to run his uncle's crappy TV station, where Al's creativity can shine. Features Michael Richards , Fran Drescher before they were famous.

i picked up u2: how to dismantle an atomic bomb about an hour ago.

i (heart) u2

I'll have more thoughts alter, but I like it. Vertigo, All Because of You, and Yahweh stand out for now though.

A Picture Share!

Guess what I found at the grocery store? Dad's Old Fashioned Root Beer! It's smoother than Barq's, tastier than Mug, and better than A&W! Posted by Hello

You know that day when it drops from 60 to 30 degrees? This was that day. Winter's on its way now!

I'm so tired.

Really, really tired.

I was a sponsor at a middle school guys overnighter. I went to sleep around 3am the first time, and again at 5. And was up by 8.

And now I feel like a zombie. I didn't leave church until around 10 am. I slept until almost 1pm. Now my body's all screwed up :)

from the Argus Leader - Local News: "Republican John Thune's South Dakota values message apparently boosted his standing in key areas such as suburban Sioux Falls and the Black Hills, giving him a 2-point win over Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle.

Building on his small-town image, a self-professed need for change and the charge that his opponent had traded South Dakota ideals for Washington clout, Thune sealed victory early Wednesday morning."

You think? The Argus Leader is South Dakota's biggest and most influential paper. It's a solid paper, but it's liberal leanings have never been more clear than this year, as the paper doggedly stood by Tom Daschle, giving John Thune no shot. Now Thune has been elected, they seem to sheepishly admit he may have connected with voters more than Daschle did. No kidding. Thanks for finally catching the obvious. Of course, I'm biased too, towards Thune, so I'm probably a bit harsh, but Thune is more in step with everyday South Dakotans than Tom Daschle, and I'm happy to support Thune, even if I no longer live in SD and can't vote for him.

today was a good day. I'm declaring Bush president, and John Thune will beat Tom Daschle for US Senate out of South Dakota!!

"Within a Room Somewhere" by Sixpence None the Richer (written by Matt Slocum)

I breathe the mist
floating about the stars
I can caress with velvet hands
I breathe the mist
floating within without
this pen between my fingers

I know you are there
within without me holding me
I know you are there
catching carrying this beautiful mess

escape the pain
within a room somewhere
escape the pain
so deep inside the soul
I have no key
no map to find"

I am a beautiful mess. And that's ok. I'm beautifully messy. And that's how God made me :)
