woke up this morning with my back tighter than (insert some line about a woman's vagina here). i could tell it had been raining. just enough to get the ground wet and leave my back in shambles. didn't really get better until i took a shower this afternoon.
a big thank you to NPR for the first listen of Cat Power's new album, Sun. this is really unlike anything i've heard from her before, but her voice is so unique, engaging and sexy to my ears... she could probably read the phone book and she would have me from the beginning. you can listen to it here: http://www.npr.org/2012/08/26/159919016/first-listen-cat-power-sun?ps=mh_frhdl1
other than that, not much going on here. i'm really looking forward to the next episode of Big Brother. i won't spoil anything, but some holy shit moments have happened in the last day or so. the Yankees start a series with Toronto this evening. hopefully they can put this team to bed early in all 3 games. teams that suck like to spoil games but not when they are losing by 5 or more runs 3 innings in. step on the throat, apply pressure.
