Good News, Good News

We got an offer on the house.

Signed the contract this morning.

So, so, so very relieved.

What this means is that things are about to get even busier. Finalizing the house arrangements, apartment searching going into overdrive, lawyer nonsense with the signing of the settlement agreement leading to depositions and/or court appearances (all formalities, mind you), finishing off unfinished tax business, job stuff... where does it all end?!?

Anyway. We're better this morning than we were last night.

Shorthand today:

Cool links 1, 2 and 3.

New Pearl Jam single came out, and can be found for free on the official site (and just about everywhere else, for that matter). It's pretty great, as is the size of the buzz... which is saying that this album is their best since Vs.

Even if I'm the only one who's continued to wear flannel since 1992... I don't care. Pearl Jam has continued to be one of the best bands around, even if people say they fell off the map long ago.

Those people are wrong. I'd trade 50 indie bands for 1 Pearl Jam, anywhere, any time.

Continuing the recent fascination with Prince...

And Jon Stewart... ouch.

Sure-- that article was touugh to get through. But not as tough as this.

Fans of arguably the greatest band of the 70s and 80s... set your faces to "stunned."
