The other day Toby and I watched Love Actually. And quite honestly, I actually I loved it. If you’ve seen it, you already know it falls in around a song called “Love Is All Around” only it’s all about Christmas and not love.
So if you really love Christ—mas. Come on and let is snow.
And the remake (in the movie) is bad, and we’re told as much by the british fella remaking the song. But that’s neither here nor there, I could absolutely NOT stop singing the REAL version (and the movie version, the be honest). But the “real” version (for me) is the remake with REM an Billy Bragg at the Borderline in England. (I think my brother owns the actual c.d.) So right after having seen the movie, Rachel wrote something reminding me again of this song. I wrote, she responded and in the end she was kind enough to send it. I will now extend the favor. While this is not the version I had (way back when when I was actually somewhat cool and respected and ran a live radio show) this is equally as amazing and fabulous. (3.8 mgs) (Thank you, Rachel and Mike.)
I spent the evening listening to Old Music. When I say “Old Music” I mean music I used to listen to when I was younger-

I wish I slap on a pair of headphones to each and every one of you (like they do on Jet Blue, Delta, and American airlines) and take you into the memory of my youth. We could trade, you and me, because I know you get it too-this feeling. So here’s the idea, we’d each have a booth like they have at Virgin Megastore. We could wander around and if you find me interesting – or I do you – we can then stop for a minute, listen to one another’s soundtrack, and understand a little bit more.
It’s 10:30 here in San Francisco and I can’t help but think that I’m the last to fall to sleep tonight on the tail end of this August 02, 2004. And I can’t help to think that I’m the last of the people who know me to have that
