Personal: Falling Asleep to The Cure's "Disintegration"

Golden Birthday
I fell asleep last night listening to the Cure's Disintegration, probably the first time I've done that since the huge sleepover at weaklingrecords', Mark's, and J.P.'s apartment. And that's been a while.

Hands-down their best album. (Although I have to confess that I stopped buying their stuff shortly thereafter because the albums no longer seemed to grab me....)

i love staring at the sea- the darkest and greatest album.

Well, kinda: since it's a singles collection, though, I don't really think of it as an "album," really, and I'm utterly disappointed that the CD version seems to just have the A-side. On my cassette tape version of Staring At The Sea, I think I listened to the B-sides almost just as often, even though there are huge quality differences. But I could never get enough of that track with the strings and the timpani....

Hey, you. You're my first reader from your part of the world and I'm totally unused to trying to do the mental gymnastics to remember what time it is where you are. I think it's something like 15 hours ahead, but I just find myself thinking "it's 'tomorrow'" at any given moment where you are. I loved your line the other week about people coming into your shop and asking for Australian stuff: I could just hear every sarcastic comment in my head that I'd have to choke down....
