Things were kind of hectic today. I felt "off my game" because I was quite tired, as I still am right now, it's about 3:40am.

I must take a nap before the show next week.

And hooray because we got the new Jucifer album in the studio. I'll listen to it and hopefully, if it's any good, I'll a track or two from it next week. Not that I'm doubting the quality here, but I've been let down before. If no Jucifer, there's always Electric Wizard and Saviours and the Ocean and Disfear that I can play in the new-metal-releases area of things.

Man, after the first hour, plugging the fund drive just got kind of annoying. Luckily, it's only for this week and next week I can get back to blabbing my opinions and miscellaneous facts about the music I play. I do hope we raise a decent amount of cash. I know I donated some money and encouraged my family to.

Lately, I'm really loving Xinlisupreme and Burial. And Mission Of Burma. I just bought the reissues and so far, so good. I gotta listen to them all and watch the DVDs and read the booklets!

I really can't shake the Burial obsession. I even bought the first self-titled album. It's not as good, but still interesting. It seems more ambient and less, I suppose, full-sounding, but the space is nice. I should listen to it some more.

Closed out both hours with Pelican because it feels like Pelican-y weather outsde recently and I've been listening to them a lot lately.

I had some more technical difficulties this week with the playlist thingy not working properly, but toward the end of the show, it started working again, so yippie.

Things went pretty well though, I really liked the music this week, despite having to drop a few tracks that I'll just play next week. It was good to be back after my absence last week, even if I was incredibly tired while doing the show.

A side note: I could not find the new Jucifer album in the studio. I know it was added, but I just can't find it! And the metal section is always so neatly organized. Maybe someone was borrowing it? I kind of doubt it, though. I really want to hear it, and subsequently, play it. Maybe I'll just buy it myself.
