Chanukah Presents for Myself
Just a thought from 6 December 2003 about .

Today I bought myself three early Chanukah presents.

  • A pile of used CDs from Amoeba. Among them: David Holmes ("Let's get killed" which features NYC found sound to groovy beats), more old R.E.M. (still replenishing that old tape collection), The New Pornographers ("Mass Romantic", their first album, rereleased - shouldn't that be called "Old Pornographers"?), the Salton Sea soundtrack (great movie, great atmospheric jazz soundtrack), Nerf Herder, and an old Spoon CD. Strange mix, I know.
  • Blik Invaders, which are vinyl stickers intended as wall art, or as they call it, "surface graphics." Basically they're stickers for designers. I think our bathroom is about to get much more geeky.
  • A very cool t-shirt from San Francisco's new Giant Robot store by artist Ryan McGinness (more) called "Sad Drips" but I think of it more as happy melty people.

If you're reading this and you're thinking, say, I'd like to buy that guy a Chanukah present (which probably means you're my mom - hi mom), my wish list is here.

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “Chanukah Presents for Myself” that I wrote on 6 December 2003.

Before this, I wrote a little something called “Fray Cafe Cardiff” on 5 December 2003. After this, I wrote “Out for a Walk” on 6 December 2003.
