I've had this song in my head for about a week, but I didn't know anything about it except that I thought I had heard it on Nick's old radio show (now I'm not so sure, though.) I didn't remember any words, and the only vocal parts I could remember were just sort of "AHh. AH! AHh." Can't really search for something like that on the webernet, and it can be somewhat embarrassing to sing it to the record store clerk (not that that has stopped me before).

So I figured it might be this band the Shins cause the vocals sounded like that and Nick likes them, so I bought that cd and was sitting here listening to it in my office, and none of the songs were the one. I started thinking about how that song was just going to be lost to me forever because I had no way to describe it to anyone, just a sound in my head like AH AH AH. I listen to all the Shins songs again and then gave up thinking about it.

Then I changed the cd to this new Pinback one I bought.

And the first song was it.


Maybe I'm having a good day? Little things like this haven't seemed to have been happening for a while, so it mattered. I had this journal thing open right before this happened and had every intention of writing "pathetic couple weeks" and leaving it at that, but whatever, being down is for lamers and this song is great.

I love it when you say lamers, even if it very much applies to me. hah

Now that I have some good, reliable rescue equipment it's no big deal! The problem was that I had been going out "naked" without any equipment.
