12/22/2006:"If You Want Something Done Right..."
...do it yourself. That may be stoicism on my part, as yes, I had to go solo on Global Orgasm Day*. Perhaps that's more information than you really wanted. Ah well. Anyway, thanks to all the inevitable end-of-year lists (in this case Pitchfork Media's 50 best of 2006), I have Fujiya & Miyagi's Transparent Things to comfort me. On my first 20 listens (that was just yesterday & today) they sound kind of like Pinback meets Ian Dury meets Wire with Gang of Four's rhythm section after a few bong hits.
*Why can't every day be Global Orgasm Day?
