Woo Hoo

This came for me today. I cannot explain how positively giddy I am. Really, it's quite embarrassing and sad. But that's OK by me. I'm going to spend my weekend listening to old Peter Gabriel-era Genesis albums, and there's nothing you can do to change my mind. I can't wait.

You can expect a full column about my listening weekend in next week's Weekend, but let me just say this: "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" is my favorite record of all time, and to finally have it in a perfectly remastered version and also in 5.1 channel sound is a dream come true. I've been waiting for a box like this since I was 16. Merry early Christmas to me.

i've always had a special place in my heart for genesis, as the sj stands for "sara jane" (they totally spell it wrong in their track from... abacab? i think?, but i forgive them).

it's a great song. very sad, however. and not early enough to be in this collection, of course (early 80s- like 81 maybe?) - but good stuff.

OK, I wouldn't say that I was a junkie or anything, but it's been two weeks without a video, and frankly my hands are starting to shake when I go to type.

What gives?
If I watch one more "Athlete of the Week" clip on the AP Video site, my head'll explode...
