the devil makes three

note: this is one of a number of entries that were lost in a server crash, followed by a desktop crash, back in late 2004. on march 1, 2009, i happened on a cache file on the crashed desktop hard drive, so i am reloading all of the entries with their original date and time values intact for posterity.

as apropos as the title may be to my current marital situation, it actually refers to a cd that i mail-ordered that arrived today. the devil makes three is a group of three twenty-something white kids (two xy, one xx) who play alt.countryish/bluesy stuff. it’s a great cd, imo. 10 songs, 30 minutes…a bit shy on length, but boy is it a grand 30 minutes. i’d heard three or so of the songs on boot liquor the last month or two and was interested enough to look into ’em and order the cd. definitely a good choice. the lyrics are dark and depressing and wonderful, and the recording is fairly stripped down and not over-produced. i very highly recommend it.
not much new today in relationshipland. i went to a few stores looking for the carder book _torn asunder:…_. looks like i’ll have to darken the doors of a xian bookstore if i want to have any chance of getting it without having to order it. tamara will be coming by tomorrow morning to pick up some stuff she needs/wants: transcript, knitting yarn…don’t know what else if anything.
