delay, delay

I got my wisdom teeth removed this morning, and my little sister thinks I look like Santa Claus walking around with two ice packs strapped to my face.
Death Cab for Cutie - Crooked Teeth

John Edwards: "Uh, I still do believe, without regard to Paris Hilton, that, uh, we have two Americas and I think what’s important is, it’s obvious that the problem exists." (from the New York Times)

I can't decide if this YouTube video is cute or not, the same way I was surprised and confused when Joe Trippi joined John Edwards' campaign after the talk he gave at Oberlin (this was a week prior to when he joined the Edwards' campaign, and he said he didn't think any of the Democratic candidates had embraced the "populist message"). Lately, though, you can see the impact of his presence in things like...Edwards attacking Obama and Clinton on Iraq in the last Democratic debate.

Josh Ritter, one of my favorite (non-jazz or classical) musically-inclined Oberlin grads, has announced info about his next album. It's The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter (what?) and will be released on August 21st.

1 To the Dogs or Whoever
2 Mind's Eye
3 Right Moves
4 The Temptation of Adam
5 Open Doors
6 Rumors
7 Edge of the World
8 Wait for Love
9 Real Long Distance
10 Next to the Last Romantic
11 Moons
12 Still Beating
13 Empty Heats
14 Wait for Love (You Know You Will)
I heard "Next to the Last Romantic" when he came to Oberlin last fall, and it was excellent, so you can expect the same from the rest of the album, duh.

Yeah, he's playing in Charlottesville on August 18, and he ALWAYS comes to Oberlin, so no beef here. I love you Josh Ritter.
