something to do on a beautiful sunday: ride the gold line out to pasadena to get some groceries at trader joe's.

try not to get the song stuck in your head

so my earlier comment about there not being a gym near my apartment turned out to be a little too pessimistic. the stuart m. ketchum downtown ymca is a half mile from my door (or six short blocks).

so now my regular morning routine should include heading up there to exercise in some way. right now, that just means hopping on an exercise bike or something along those lines. some day i’ll figure out the whole deal with the heavy things.

i like this quote from this bbc article on academic research into how people use music players:

“Donning a pair of earbuds also grants a certain amount of licence. They let listeners become witnesses without the risk of getting too involved. The earphones absolve them of some responsibility.”

yeah, that pretty much nails it for me.

la.pm

maybe i’ll go and wear my perl shirt to blend in.
