Ah! The perfect slobfest weekend, when you do nothing much but sleep in late, watch crappy (and occasionally nice) movies at home. When lunch consists of French toast and sausages at Mickey's and dinner is takeout from Taco Johns. When you discover good music which you had missed so far (more on that later.) When the guy at the comic shop hasn't one but two JLA issues waiting for you.

When the weather is so nice that you should be out running and jumping and having a barbecue, but you prefer to lounge in your balcony. When an old friend calls you long distance, and then your call is interrupted by another old friend who hasn't been in touch. When you group chat with your buddies at 2:00AM on MSN and all complain about how life has lost its edge. When you have a million chores to do but you don't do any (except laundry 'cause you need fresh underwear!) When you suddenly discover that the touch pad on you laptop has a convenient switch off button, so you don't mistype. When you finally get time to update your damn blog!

Anyway about that music thing. So the band I just discovered is the Velvet Underground (specifically I listened to and immediately ordered The Velvet Underground and Nico.) Anyway, here's a thought, rather that flooding my sidebar with recommendations, I'll just make two separate posts and link to them from the sidebar! My genius has no limits!

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

- Venus in Furs, Lou Reed, The Velvet Underground and Nico.
