I'm not a big baseball fan, actually I'm kind of waiting for the post season to be over so I can get my TV back. When I say get my TV back I really only mean one show which is Arrested Development, the best show on television. They started the season with 3 episodes and then MLB playoffs started. How do you tease me like that FOX, how? I have no idea when the season is going to continue (update: 10.31.05) but I do have all this seasons episodes to watch till then.
You can listen to FOXcasts of the episodes, they're only audio recaps and can never replace the actual show but its there while baseball
While I'm on this TV rant, The Colbert Report on Comedy Central debuts today after months and months of advertising and teasing. We shall see if it lives up to the hype.
I've been hitting up the Nada Surf hardcore all weekend. I remember when I first heard The Proximity Effect, I was living in my first apartment in woodsy East Texas where there's nothing to do other than drink yourself into a stupor every weekend. The album caught me off guard because it was just another album when I first heard it and I didn't really enjoy High/Low, their debut. Then they released Let Go and I didn't want to listen to it because I didn't think they could top the previous album. After a while I finally got a hold of it and was blown away. I still prefer The Proximity Effect over any of their albums. They just released a new one called The Weight Is A Gift which continues where Let Go left off with Chris Walla from Death Cab doing production work again.
Here's one of my favorites by Nada Surf, a B-side from Let Go:
