I'm feeling all political after watching Manufacturing Consent. I think I should abstain from television and just read books, though I'm not sure how long that'll last. Movies aren't television, so it may just work out. Yesterday I saw The Compleat Beatles. It made me feel grossly incompetent as a songwriter, in however a good way possible.

I apologize to everyone who I promised to send a copy of our new songs. I'm definitely going to send them off today.
