Listening to: Death Cab for Cutie- 'Plans'

August 10, 2005

I haven't posted on here in a month, and probably will continue to ignore this blog until I can find a definite purpose for it. Biggest music news for me lately is that Chris Simpson is back (Mineral, the Gloria Record) with a solo project called Zookeeper. You can find three great songs on Myspace.com. I can't wait for football to begin, I am excited about watching the Redskins and Auburn again. The Redskins will probably be awful as usual, but at least Patrick Ramsey is starting and they have low expectations. Auburn's entire backfield has changed, but I expect them to be good and win the SEC West again. A couple months ago when the Orioles were 14 games above .500 and in 1st in the AL East I thought they would finally have a good season. But then they lost, lost, and lost some more; fired their manager; and Rafael Palmeiro was suspended for steriods. Now they find themselves 5 games under .500 and in 4th in the AL East- ridiculous. But, now that football is almost here I can ignore baseball as usual.
