All right: As a rule, Mondays certainly do not rock. But yesterday did.
- First, and this likely isn’t news to anyone at this point, I had one of the most beautiful emails ever yesterday morning: “This is just a quick note to let you know first that Radiohead have made an album. It is called In Rainbows, and it is now available to pre-order exclusively from Radiohead.com”. Aside from the massive, huge, world-ending ramifications of digital, non-label distribution – hey, it’s a new fucking Radiohead album. They’re most likely my favourite band in the world, so this is seriously awesome.
- Not quite as awesome, but still pretty darn cool, is the announcement of a new British Sea Power album, with the utterly brilliant title of “Do You Like Rock Music?” As luck would have it, I do like Rock Music, so this is happymaking. (As an aside: If you ever have the chance, go to see this band live. They’re pretty crazy.)
- Moving back up on the Awesome Chart: Scott Pilgrim 4 is finished! Possibly released by the end of October!
So you see, friends, Mondays shouldn’t always be feared. Sometimes they bring much glee and warm fuzzy feelings.
(And hopefully October brings more productive and insightful blogging, because, man, I’ve sucked lately.)
