Lyrics of the Day

From "Wednesday" by the Drive-By Truckers, from their new album, A Blessing and a Curse:
He was sad in ways he couldn't tell her
Though she could make his sadness all her own
He couldn't see the use in spreading sadness
So he took his dark depression and went home
I guess that kind of sums up why I don't socialize more. Actually, I have been in an uncharacteristically good mood lately. I'm not sure why; maybe something awful is about to happen.

As for the album, A Blessing and a Curse, I'm not sure what I think of it yet. While it certainly is good, better than 99% of the crap on the radio, I can't say how good. Considering that its predecessor, The Dirty South, is my nominee for album of the decade (so far), I had some pretty high expectations for the new CD. I'll have to listen to it a few more times before I decide. In the meantime, you can't go wrong with The Dirty South.
