I need a new scarf

Well, here I am again.

School is about two weeks in now and its been kind of strange coming back to it. Things are mostly the same here, but I actually feel kind of different, which is the first real change I've felt since I flew home. Friend wise, I feel the most close to my roommate, which we were pretty close already, but we both were abroad last semester (he student taught in new Zealand), so we are going through similar things. Really the odd part is that now that I'm back with my close friends who were gone 1st semester and the ones who were gone 2nd semester and its weird having a larger group around. So, long story short, people from last spring are kind of petty and lame and I'm not as close to them as I thought, but more silly types are back, so that's good, and in conclusion, I hang out with my roommate and a few others almost exclusively. So...yes.

Class wise, my classes are interesting, but h'm having a hard time deciding if I care or not. Working at the museum was was the most gratifying thing I've done in a long time and was one things I felt like I did legitimately really well in a while. So class seems kind of a step back at times, it'd rather be doing something rather than being talked too. So we'll see how that goes. Res Life at SNC has become very lame and irrational and I don't really do much.but my HD is nice and one of my best friends is on my staff, so I have a partner in crime in regards to not doing work, and a boss who lets us do that, to a point. Moral of the story: Don't be an RA your senior year. (Senior? christ, how did that happen)

I read Night by Elie Wiesel at the library tonight for one of my classes. For some reason I never read this book before tonight, which is probably a crime. But seriously, I think this book is maybe the best written book I've ever read and certainly one of the most important ones ever.

"From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me. The Look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me"

In the last week I've been able to get a lot of music that I've been trying to get a hold of. The new Of Montreal album is really dancy fun and I just got the leak of the new Arcade Fire album, what I've heard is really great, but I have yet to really jump into it. Busdriver is really interesting and the new Deerhoof album is the first Deerhoof album that I've really dug. Oh yeah! the new Yusef album is really interesting, if you like Cat Steven's you'll like it, its nothing particularly new, but its a really great bright album.

Dan gave me the David Bazan solo album, and its been playing almost nonstop for the last week, its a bit more jesusy than Pedro the Lion at times, but the songs are all fantastic. The other album that is fighting past that is the new Andrew Bird album. Oh man, is it good.

oh! before i leave, i'm looking for Ida albums, can someone send me those or point me where they may be hiding ?

ps. I do really need a scarf

Night is definitely one of my favorite books

i hated that book, night.

but suit yourselves. fine, great literature, whatever. depressing as fuck. even more than the usual fuck.

and okay colin, what color scarf? right now your options are red and wheat. (wheat is an off-white color, colin.)

if you want a different color, you will have to be cold for a few more weeks while i make you one.


ps: new andrew bird album?!?!?!!? whaa?
pps: i think i am the least english-majory i've ever been during the process of writing this comment. it's the post-midnight hour. makes me savage.

if the the color "wheat" doesn't look like normal wheat, I should not be expected to know what color it actually is. That being said, red.

you'd be proud of me, I went to a poetry reading today.

two things, would you like mittens that may or may not double as monster puppets to match your red and wheat scarf?

Also, we are going home to Chicago this weekend in order to get rowdy and ride the lions in front of the art museum after a certain team wins a certain super bowl. You are more than welcome.

I have several Ida albums that I could burn for you. Email me at chadfrakes@hotmail.com
I agree about the new Deerhoof album...it's pretty good.

Other stuff that I've been digging a lot recently:
Deerhunter - Cryptograms
Field Music - Tones of Town
The Coup - Pick A Bigger Weapon
Sparklehorse - Dreamt For Light Years In The Belly Of A Mountain
Led Zepplin - Physical Graffiti

Hope to hear from you soon, my friend.
