A further example of why I could never be a music critic: the new Blur album is rather pleasant. Nothing that you'd call outstanding or surprising, but listenable enough. On the other hand, my heart has already been won by the new Black Box Recorder album, and I've only heard the first track so far. I promise I will buy both eventually, but for the moment they'll be accompanying me on my trip to Washington via illicit CD-Rs.
According to a sign I saw in the town today, there's another Washington D.C. protest planned for March 15th. Which is my last full day there. That's going to be interesting, to say the least. RIOT IN DC!
