Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

Hmm... Katie, normally I'm pretty stoked for concerts, but the problem here is that they're opening for that babysitter-song-lady. So it would cost a lot and they'd just be the opener. Alternatively, if you want to catch the Decemberists or New Model Army, both of them are playing on the 2nd at the 930 and the Black Cat respectively. New Model Army is pretty cool mid-eighties punk from Britain, if you care.

On the subject of music, here's a question for Mike and Jesse: you guys ever listen to Xiu Xiu? I think you'd like them. They headlined a show at the Warehouse that Celeste and I went to last Wednesday. We went to see Nedelle who was opening. (The difference between this and the Girlyman show was that I was kind of interested in Xiu Xiu and the cover was only $8.)

And more on music: isn't it really interesting what people play in their cars if you listen to it all afternoon? I mean, I expect go-go and bad rap, but then all of a sudden someone is playing Frank Sinatra or "Zombie." And the other day I heard someone playing a track from Blue Lines. Wild.

Also, got called on today in Race, Racism, and the Law. Butler likes to nail people in that class, mostly by getting them to commit the positions they feel like they should hold (eg. race tells you nothing about people's character) and then pointing out that such a position doesn't correspond with reality (eg. the next assigned reading, which details how people from different races allocate their time in different ways). I was proud of how I held up, probably because I have a clear sense of what race and racism mean, something most folks in the class seem to lack. Not to toot my own horn, or anything.

But getting called on did give me a headache. I hardly ever get headaches.
