That's how up-to-date I am.
I bought the new Smashing Pumpkins album Zeitgeist. I was very excited. I realized how not-very-prevalent that attitude was not-long-after. As I said to Pammy, it felt sort of like I was the one guy really excited to buy the new Chicago album or something.
Anyway...it's pretty darn fun and makes me feel like I'm driving around in Pennsylvania with the windows down on summer break from college.
Is it brain surgery and/or very hip? No. But hey, I sort of love it.
This, of course, means I'm banned from reading Pitchfork. Thank God. They make me feel so very, very small.
