Yes, it's a blatant rip-off of the abfab Pop77 (who delivered a lovely belated valentine to the internets with the 44th edition of his P77 mix series last week). Nevertheless, here goes the first edition of my own (potential) mix series, BigTix. It's actually post-dated for last Friday, to coincide with my pal Rachel's 25th birthday, but I kept tweaking it over the weekend.

Happy belated, Rach.

I have to jaunt off to the ol' jobby-job, but I'll try to update this later.

BTW: Welcome back Marc Maron. Say it with me now...FIRE TRUCK!!

MP3 Jens Lekman - "I Saw Her At The Anti War Demonstration"
I've got very little time this morning, but here's a quick track to tide y'all over until I can produce a more sufficient Valentine's post. From Jens Lekman's 2005 odds & ends release Oh You're So Silent Jens.

Much love, y'all.

bluthie, you've done a heckuva job

I'm back from a nearly month-long hiatus (January was cuh-raaaazy!). I've been delayed in getting a post up all week, preoccupied with the lead-up to tonite's two hour Arrested Development finale, which begins shortly on Fox (7pm CT). I've been re-watching the first two seasons all week, and I've been replaying the first nine episodes of season three throughout today.

As the final countdown to what will most likely be the final episodes of TV's best comedy, my emotions are mixed. I'm still holding out hope that the show might be saved, but I know that the odds are not in our favor. To commemorate the occasion, I'm going to attempt to "live blog" the final four episodes on this post, though I'm not sure how it will go & what there will be for me to comment on, but I'm giving it a go nonetheless.

BTW: If you watch the undoubtably yawn-inducing opening ceremonies of the Olympics on NBC tonite, the terrorists win. SO BE A PATRIOT.
