| Happy New Year everyone! Fun fact: 2007 is the biggest year number that anyone has ever experienced ever. Since today is back to work day I spent the day catching up on things so that I could procrastinate my thesis work. For instance, I updated the Album-a-day page with 30 new albums—it hadn't been updated since June! Phew. It's badly in need of a database backend; I feel like a Web 0.5 typewriter blogger.|
|I wish you a very Happy New Year 2007 and good luck for everything!|
|You too, Kirima!|
|Woohoo! and Yay!
Best wishes Tom!
|tom, you are bein blatantly racist and anti-semetic.
the jewish calander is 5767! and the chineese are up to 4703!
don't be mean. don't be racist!
|Sorry, I mean Gregorian year number!|
|And in Thailand it's 2550!|
|I just noticed it was updated! Thank you, Tom. This made my day. You are a good man.
I'm actually kind of surprised there wasn't a larger backlog. Did people slow down? Or maybe my expectations were just unrealistic.
My taunting was all in good fun, of course, but you can probably catch back up with me now! I'm taking a break from AADs for a little while to do something else (my new year's resolution was to make "something musical" every day, sort of a marathon to AAD's sprint). By the way, I like your "Shithope" and "Theme from Backups" -- these two stood out to me from several of your AADs I listened to recently.
|Thanks! Of course, the AAD competition is lighthearted...|
|Hey, is the AAD project a competition? I didn't realize that...
Maybe it's nice to make a top 10 page for it then.
|Oh, not really (though people do compete a little)... but a list by number of albums is a good idea. I'll probably do that for the new site.|
|Hey Tom, I had a dream a couple nights ago that I called you to tell you I had just finished an AAD, and you said several other people had as well that day, including you, and suggested we get together for an AAD party. So there were maybe seven or eight of us, sitting on benches on opposite sides of a white hallway deep inside the middle of a building, just outside a big white auditorium. We were chatting and I was anxiously awaiting when I would get to play my AAD for everyone.
Someone had done a musical AAD, like Darren Ailes's doppelganger, and we decided we were going to watch it performed. So we stepped out into seats in the auditorium where there was a crowd and all these actors performed the AAD, but it never got to an actual musical part before the dream sequence ended, only talking. The play was anti-Bush or criticizing the Iraq war or something like that, and I wondered if anyone would be irked by its blatant partisanship, but all the AAD makers' murmurs were supportive.
|Weird. My dream was about sailing the ocean blue.|
|You keep showing up in my dreams, Tom. It is bizarre. I had a dream a couple nights ago where I was you, and I was coming home to my suburban house on the hills after some time away, and it was 2001, and I (you) decided to sleep in the dusty, cruddy basement. In the morning the next day, I (you) could see butterflies and furry animals outside through the ground-level window, and it was all happy, and one of my (your) multiple brothers came downstairs to ask why on earth I (you) had decided to sleep down here, but I couldn't answer because I had to clear my throat.
There was more, but you probably don't care.
|The basement is a lovely place to sleep!|
|Yeah, it was a mostly empty unfinished basement with a bed and stuff.|
