Time machine: Dave Slusher's most popular post 1 year ago today was:
Of all the things I've screwed up lately, forgetting my MP3 player might be one of the more irksome. Luckily my queue was so long before I stopped using my phone as a player that I still have unlistened MP3s on it.
However, my phone is barely starting up and I just did get the files off of it onto the work computer and got my Logitech headset - which I've had for months but never used - connected and working.
Many many things have gone wrong lately, some my fault and some the fault of others and some no one's fault. At least I'm limping along now. I hated the thought of not listening today when I had finally gotten my queue under 6 weeks for the first time since the baby was born. Plus, my day is kind of a bummer when I'm sitting here in silence. 2 years ago

If there is any rhyme or reason why things build or not, or why unchanging tests sometimes pass and sometimes fail, it is all beyond me. 2 years ago
Today Punkin had her 4 year old vaccinations and I ended up watching her. I gave her the choice of lunch anywhere she wanted and she chose Wendy's. Most likely, it's because our local one has a Coke Freestyle machine and she likes playing with that more than eating.
We had this conversation during lunch:
Punkin: The airplanes leave trails of ketchup in the sky! And french fries fall down like rain?
Punkin: Yes, and the ground is made out of hamburgers and cheeseburgers. You can pick one up and eat it whenever you want.
Me: And how about drinks?
Punkin: The rivers are Sprite and the creeks are cherry. You cvan scoop it out and drink whenever you want. Isn't that cool?
Me: Yes, it sounds wonderful. What do you call such a place?
Punkin: Ketchup World!

Is there a defined sub-genre that encompasses Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, Fruit Bats, The Shins, etc? These bands all have similar feels to me but I'm not sure what you'd call them to distinguish them from, say, Kings of Leon or any other rock band. Americana, high pitched vocals, tending towards melancholy.
I think this kind of music needs its own term in the way "shoe gazing" or "math rock" gives a quick handle into what is different about that sub-genre. 2 years ago
