Life’s been a bit of a blur lately, or maybe a bit more than lately. I’ve been working a lot – lately I’ve been editing at the corporate job most days and either editing/writing or trying to edit/write at night. It’s good, I tell myself, and sometimes I believe it. Other times I feel like I should be more social, or something, and that the fact that I almost never feel not busy isn’t necessarily a good thing.

On Friday night Franny and I went to the Radiohead concert in beautiful Newark, and after all was said and done, it was a bit of an exhausting let-down that ended with us getting caught in a downpour just as we were trying to find a taxi home from Penn Station. I really like Radiohead, and I think that it was a good Radiohead concert, but sometime during the second half of the show their once very cultural zeitgeist-y feeling music started to feel a bit stale to me. Perhaps I’m getting older, perhaps the cultural zeitgeist has moved on, or perhaps the band that so known for breaking new musical ground has finally started to run out of ground… probably a bit of all three.

It also probably had a lot to do with the fact that it was held in an arena, which is my least favorite place to see a concert, and to see Radiohead in an arena full of twenty-thousand relatively wealthy white people felt ironic in a way that I can’t quite put put my finger on. Not good ironic.

They did have a kick-ass stage setup, though, and I hope to get one of the video panels for Christmas.

In other news, I need to go to bed.
