That makes a really good title. I was thinking of a homage to J.G. Ballard, but somehow I think that would attract undue sorts of attention from the wrong sorts of people. Let's leave it at that.

I'm reading The Drowned World and I really like it.

Alternate title: Why I Want To Punch Matthew Bellamy.

This is why: Vox Day likes Muse. I once said I knew a few nice Muse fans. Here's the thing, Vox Day is such a racist, misogynist pompous stuck-up giant twerp blogger scumbag fuckface dickhead asshole that it negates the few cool Muse fans out there.
I don't know if he's a worse writer than a propagandist for pretty much every southwest Asian autarch and king ever. He might be. They're both incredibly boring. One has all the characterization and style of a middle schooler's essay, the other is didactic.

Perhaps I'll make a poll. But not today.

I'll do the same thing I've been doing on July 6 for the past few years.

from 2011 to 2012, a lot of these were on the best of 2011 mix CD I made.
6LA8 - if words were swords, we would be fucking ninjas - further proof that Pakistan's music scene is among the best in the world.
Mole - One Up
Cave In - Lost in the Air
Fennesz - Liminal
Happy Avenue - South (it came in between When A Fish Loves Xiao Long and , yet I had no idea about it.)
Parachute Pulse - Hidden Poweres
Armand Tamzarian - I Missed The Happy Times We Had As I Walked Alone On The Shoreline - Malaysian post-rock with clips from 28 Days Later.
Swirling Light - Hate Me - the riff sounds kind of familiar. Everything else is like Elf Fatima: serene female vocals and heavy distortion.
Talkless - My Scarlet Arms (gramaphone children remix)
Ballads of the Cliche - Jennifer Loves Hewitt - like an Indonesian Belle and Sebastian.
Curve - sigh - a b-side
Phil Ochs - Here's to the State of Mississippi - someone posted this when some hobbit fuck killed a black guy. Also, Mississippi is where Theodore Bilbo comes from. Nasty wicked tricksy hobbitses. Bagginses! We hates it FOREVER!
Vidulgi Ooyoo - Aero - good Korean post-rock shoegaze exists. I wish I could have a conversation with 2006 me. There's other things I want to do too. Thats why I must triumph over the Hunewearl– so that some day I can tell her I am sorry.
Spamtron - Skull Castle Part 2 (Mega Man 3) - the world would be a better place if there were more Mega Man tributes.
Perfect Angel - Cataclysmic
Witherspoon - Tingles and Everything
SIANspheric - Turbulent, Hydrodynamic - I first learned of Sianspheric years ago on everything2 but never bothered to listen to it until one day, I listened on Youtube. This is what CanCon should lead to.
Thermal and a Quarter - Sunset Man
Doves - Break Me Gently - someone on everything2 mentioned them along with Sianspheric.
Tori Amos - Datura
Miaou - Small Dream
Irepress - Samus
6LA8 - but really, it's all a conspiracy - what a great speech by Carl Sagan
Goose - For Andy
Under My Pillow - Langit Mendung Dan Senja - from a site promoting Southeast Asian tweepop, indie rock, shoegaze, and other thing.
Amanda and Vasilis - Bonus Track - from a Greek indiepop compilation
Luminous Orange - Gertrude
Southpacific - Datura
Odessa Chen - Deer Perspectives
Jellybelly - Cahaya Hilang
Fat Tulips - So Unbelievable - I first heard them on a Pete and Pete episode.
Lilys - the Way Snowflakes Fall
Clover - Sundae Rhapsody
Eyeless in Gaza - Dreaming Body
A Sunny Day in Glasgow - White Witch
My Violaine Morning - Hydrophobia
Language of Light - This Instant Eternal
Major Stars - Phantom #1
School of Seven Bells - When You Sing
The Curtain Society - Chelsea
Syrup USA - Rosey Why
Etza Meisyara - In Your Room - an Airiel cover
Karbala Bukan Fatam - Bahtera Jelang Karam
Twelve Insomnia - Rave #01
Amazing in Bed - Romansick
TerbujurKaku - Sekar Jupun Remix + Gadis Pujaan
The Durutti Column - II Chant
The Cure - A Strange Day
Spiritualized - I Think I'm In Love
Airiel - Flashlight Tag - well worth the wait
Twink - Enter Sandman

I think I heard someone speaking in Amharic or Somali on the T.

Since the Gardner Museum is free today for me, I checked it out. Pretty damned awesome, if I say so myself. There was an embroidery with a sentence from Invasion of the Body Snatchers (please refer to my entry title), obviously made after someone, or perhaps someone invented a Very Slow Time Machine that can move backwards too, and Isabella found it and thought it was really awesome.

This intrigues me: Voice of the Turtle, a Sephardic music ensemble. And Youtube has some recordings. Hurrah. This has everything to do with me listening to Aion and Portals of Grace excessively to the point of dreaming about roses and Afghanistan without the centuries of intervention by the powers that be and nothing to do with the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum.

someone's bag had "got Arabic?" written on it.

and there was a conversation in graffiti. It went like this:
"Got pee?"
"Not anymore."
"Now if only I could poop."

"Kilgore Trout 2137."

Out of order bathrooms are worse than war, murder, and drow elves.

Burning Question: What's the best graffiti you've ever seen? My answer: this.
