    Turkey Day and Black Friday

    I hope all of you have a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving. I certainly know I can't wait 'til the turkey's sliced around 2pm today. And don't forget about all those great deals tomorrow. With sites dedicated to Black Friday, like dealplumber, there are just tons of good deals floating out there tomorrow. You can find loads of stuff for under ten bucks; everything from super-cheap USB drives to LCD dartboards and Barbies. Go crazy, pilgrim.

    Season of the Shock

    It's that time of year again. Time when you wrestle off your coat only to get the shock of your life when you touch the light switch. And it really does seem that each shock is worse than the last. *Pffzztt AAH!* is the mantra of winter, and I have to say I'm not really looking forward to several more months of this. But the season of the shock reminds me of a great Yo La Tengo song, so here you go.

    Bonus track: Yo La Tengo "Season of the Shark"

    Nervous Music Podcast 008

    Thank goodness I raked all the leaves off the lawn yesterday. It's absolutely pouring outside today and the forecast predicts another three days of this. New England autumns can be gorgeous or they can be downright rainy and miserable. Luckily we have the indoors, warm clothing and some music to pass the time.
