Yeah, I know we’re almost six weeks into 2004. It just took a while to put these thoughts together.
This year I was almost content to let KEXP speak for me on the best releases of the year. But I can’t find a concise link on their site for this year’s “best of” list (though it is on the online playlist), and besides Greg inspired me (and gave me a neato format to steal!). So I’ve written an unordered, quick top albums of 2003 list, plus some reflections on the year in music as a whole.
I moved the New Oxford Annotated Bible off my Current Reading spot today. This doesn’t mean I’ve read the whole thing; in fact, I’m still working my way through the Apocrypha, which is where I started a month ago. But I was only able to get in a few pages of reading a night, and I was starting to despair of getting any farther.
Serendipitously, Dave pointed today to a site that lets you subscribe to the Bible via RSS. In particular, the site has three different “read the Bible in a year” feeds that give one entry a day with various combinations of Old and New Testament and Psalms.
Hey, if it works with Samuel Pepys, it’s gotta work for the Good Book, right?
Looks like George and Becky had a great ski weekend. I’m envious of all the powder and the empty mountains, but not the drive. So far we haven’t had to do chains on our cars to get up to the slopes, even at Whistler.
