the photography:
can i talk about how crappy the weather has been in chicago this spring? what have the weather gods given us this year? bupkus. nadda. zilch. nothing. where’s my 68 degree sunny day with a slight breeze? oh, sorry, the memo says that it has been replaced by rain, 43 degree mornings, and some serious wind. dag yo. i did get a chance to sneak out and walk around the block and document the crappy day. not always a fun subject, crappy days tend to end just as horribly as they begin. i think today will be different. the mrs. and i are headed to the gym, then back to the house for some lounging with the puppy. i think things will follow the natural course and we will see the sun soon, and with said sun comes our 86 degree days. i hope.

the music:
a crappy day outside deserves some serious ass kicking sludge. slint, from outta no where, in 1991, gave us one of the great indie records of all time. spiderland laid the ground work for anything and everything that was post-rock. oh boy is it good. the cover photo was shot by will oldham too which is totally sweet. anyways, you can google them and figure out what all the hub-bub is about. or you can just dive in.
