for all you kerith ravine fans out there (all 17 of you), michael shepard, lead singer and songwriter has a "new" band called lovedrug. the sound is fairly similar to kerith ravine, not as hard, this time with piano. their debut album comes out in july on the militia group. brandtson also has a new album coming out on the same label in june.

a week has passed, and i am still sick. i could be flying down to south africa as early as today to see a doctor there. zambia just doesn't have the proper equipment and technology here to properly diagnose me.

the second week of the bowling league was last night, i did much better. i rolled a 159, 175, and 115. i am still too inconsistent. my average in the league though after two weeks though is 140, i am happy with that. our team did a lot better as well, possibly winning our match (results aren't in because handicaps haven't been calculated).

the pistons won game 2 of their series against the pacers, so it is tied 1-1 going to detroit. tayshawn prince had the most amazing block i have ever seen to end the game. he swatted away reggie miller's breakaway layup attempt that would have tied the game with 15 seconds. i was able to watch the replay of the game last night. go pistons!

once again it has been weeks since i have posted. that is mainly because i have been sick for close to three weeks, meaning i have done absolutely nothing to write about. i had malaria the first week, now what i have is unknown. i have been to 2 doctors over 6 times total.

while most of the time i sit at home, i did get out last night as the new bowling league started. i bowled right at my league average of 131, which is still more than 15 pins below my regular average. i am actually on a team this time, which is fun. it is refreshing to be at the alley and not be in charge.

the new pedro the lion album is out, i would recommend buying it.

the detroit pistons and new jersey nets are playing game 7 tomorrow night of their playoff series. i am still trying to recover from detroit's 3 OT loss in game 5. only a win tomorrow will allow me to forget it.

soon i hope to come up with a new idea and design for this site. although that may have to wait until i can get back to the states and have high speed internet again. i still haven't figured out why this site doesn't archive itself.

i watched donnie darko last night for the second time, but for the first time in about two years. i have decided it one of my favorite movies, and one of the best ever made. go rent it. and if you happen to live in seattle, the director's cut is premiering at the seattle film festival on may 29.

the pistons finished off the bucks and now face the nets in the second round. new jersey swept detroit in the eastern conference finals last year, hopefully that will be reversed.

i ordered the new pedro the lion album achilles heel, a few nights ago, i can't wait to hear it.
