reaping the whirlwind (i'm nuuuuuuude)

in case you haven't noticed, i haven't been posting lately. the last 7 days have been fairly nuts for me, and on top of it all, you may have noticed that all is not well in mp3blog-ville lately, what with ezarchive switching things over, and bloggers dropping like flies. i promised i would give this thing at least a year, and i am holding to that. but when the shit hits the fan, school and work win over ydb (unless there's a sugar daddy or momma out there who would like to support me so i don't have to worry about either). anyway...i tried to put this post up yesterday, but spent far too much time getting mad at the new and improved ezarchive, and then had this crazy burst of group project energy, and the whole thing just sort of got away from me. so you get it today. also, welcome our new host, file den, who boasts a much easier user interface, plus, it's free, and you can't beat free.
but back to the post...
some people have comfort food, i have comfort music. here's some of it, as well as some stuff that has been finding it's way onto mix cds, since lately i have even been to lazy to recharge the ipod (crazy, i know). with regards to the selection, like they said on my favourite 80s show, you take the good, you take the bad...and well, you listen. so yeah.

albert hammond jr. - in transit
cassettes won't listen - gigga
the postmarks - goodbye (cwl remix)
sloan - i hate my generation
missy elliott - we run this
classified - find out
azure ray - sleep
ben folds five - one angry dwarf and 200 solemn faces
the four seasons - oh what a night
loverboy - working for the weekend
the bangles - in your room

finally, this always makes me laugh, and i don't care how many times i watch it:
