Trees Outside The Academy (Day 200)

The Replacements - "Darlin' One"
Thurston Moore - "Trees Outside The Academy"
The National - "Watching You Well"
How's this for anticlimactic? The 200th post on WILTOMWTWT features three measly songs. Hey, think of it this way, considering my output a few weeks ago any post before leaving for the weekend is a small victory. Meanwhile I'm on a little National run these days. The Dark Was The Night compilation got me listening to them again (not that you need an excuse). But today I noticed I Am Fuel You Are Friends posted their set from the Radio City concert. It's awfully good, naturally. And good timing since a coworker was raving about the show and making me feel old/lame for having barely been aware of it and obviously not considering going. But I did get tickets to see Grizzly Bear later this month. Who says I'm a total loser? Seriously...who says that?

And then I got to work.

Today's Stats
Total songs listened to: 3
Total minutes of music (approx.): 12
Song with the most previous plays:
"Trees Outside The Academy" - 4
How I Rate Today's Playlist (1-10): 6
Miscellaneous factoid about my trip to work today: I saw some dude try and pick up a girl at 8:22am outside the subway. That seems bold to me. I couldn't make out exactly what he said, but her response was "No. I'm sorry." As she walked away he muttered, "Yeah, I'm sorry too." My advice would be to wait until at least 9am.

That Replacements song was pretty terrible - one of the worst of their career. Last nigt I was listening to Tommy Stinson while walking to my train and realized, with great surprise, that given the choice between Village Gorilla Head and any Mats album, these days I'd rather listen to Tommy's. My tastes have really mellowed.
