Waaaazzup with Wil (Vol. 3)

Lately I’ve had the recurring sense that anything’s possible — that good things can and will happen. A really nice feeling.

I’m loving Neutral Milk Hotel. I respect a band that can jam on the bagpipes and belt out: “I love you Jesus Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiiist, Jesus Christ I love you, yes I do.”

That’s all.

Welcome to the 2nd installment of Waaaazzup with Wil (the Holiday 2010 edition).

A few things I’ve been into lately:

  • Orion — I’m always pleased to see this constellation (including the stars Rigel, Betelgeuse, and Bellatrix) return to the crisp, winter sky
  • Fallout: New Vegas — a sweet follow-up to Fallout 3, my favorite post-apocalyptic computer game
  • MI-5 (a.k.a., Spooks) — streamin’ BBC via Netflix, woohoo!
  • Sahale Valdosta, candied pecans + cranberries = yummy, but I have to laugh at the description: “evokes the classic taste of the American South”. Pecans, yes, but cranberries? Not exactly a classic Southern food.
  • The Terror, (recommended by Stefanie) — an engrossing, atmospheric winter read — the 1845 Franklin Expedition searches for the Northwest Passage, freezes in, encounters a mysterious Esquimaux couple, and fights against a preternatural “Terror”
  • Eef Barzeley & Clem Snide’s Suburban Field Recordings III — recently re-released ’90s alt-country (current favorites: “For Lydia” and the Lou Reed/Velvet Underground cover: “Pale Blue Eyes”). Check it out…
