January 28, 2006
Ok so recently (last Friday/Saturday) I decided not to go to bed, to reset my sleeping hours. Had a great night's sleep Saturday/Sunday, then reset to current pattern.
Current pattern: um, sleeping roughly 6AM to 3PM most days, obviously waking up earlier on lecture days (which isn't often, thank God for a humanities schedule and a flexible definition of what is and isn't necessary).
But yeah. Half of my flat are keeping a similarish schedule. Tonight was annoying though, no one was about when I went looking for people to drink beer and listen to hip hop with. I wish my flatmates would stop spending their time having sex behind locked door with partners, or whatever they're doing (if it's anything less interesting than that then I will be even more annoyed).
But whatever. I have alcohol and a massive pile of mp3s, which is all a person needs to enjoy themselves.
Have presentation type-deal on Monday. If I don't get it prepared by Monday then I'll just get a train home, or whatever.
Here is a link to something that should really blow you into pieces with its casual energy, but won't because everyone's too busy listening to weak u2 albums:
Although it's billed as "Aesop Rock & friends", he's hardly featured. No big deal, he rules, and so do the other four guys. The first song on there is Illy by S.A. Smash (Camu Tao and Metro). It is awesome. A version of it with better sound detail can be found here
Man I would love to see any members of Def Jux live. Compare the freestyle rap on those videos to the inventiveness of, say, Oasis or Franz Ferdinand, and if you dare give the wrong answer I will one inch punch you into next year. Or something.
