Currently playing song: “Relative Ways” by And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead on Source Tags and Codes. Sadly, while this song sounds a whole lot like really good Sonic Youth a la A Million Leaves or Washing Machine, the rest of the album sounds a whole lot like… a lot of other bands. I might think better of it after another listen.
A few days and three papers left, and I can’t finish one of them yet because the landscape is moving too quickly. Our technology strategy paper on the video game console industry has been hit hard in the last two days—between Nintendo finally deciding to go on line (News.com) and Sony and Microsoft preparing to go into a price war (New York Times), we can’t update the paper fast enough to keep up. Thank goodness it’s due tomorrow. I can only imagine how the analysts feel.
