So Laura subscribes to Bust magazine. (On more than one occasion, I’ve picked it up, and there’s some interesting stuff in there! Not just lesbian stuff either!) Today she got a new issue, and there’s a review in there of a new book published by Stuart David, (frontman/basist for the band Looper). Looper is one of my favorite bands, so she told me about it.
I did a little searching and found an excerpt. I will be picking up the book shortly, (it’s on hold at ruminator) but then I also decided to see if looper has a website. That was how I found out that they also have a new album!!! Well, it’s not even that new, it came out in May of last year, called the snare. I feel horrible that I didn’t know about this before now!
I’m also tempted by looper’s backpack-type-things available from their site, but since I made quite a few purchases this weekend (after paying bills, of course), I should probably hold off on that one. I called in sick on friday and monday (hence my lack of updates, for some reason this thing is a lot more fun when it’s on company time — ooh that’s incriminating!) and played one of those purchases (Dark Cloud 2) all day yesterday. So far, it’s pretty much a lot like the first one, addicting and fun… I don’t yet know how I’ll find time to read.
