The whole “blog” thing is really taking off, eh? Understatement!
Well, I was just thinking about the future of books. And I had a vision of you, curled up in a future chair, under a future lamp, reading a future book on a little laptop. Just a little one, not your “main boo” computer, but a little guy that’s good for reading. A “nestler”, if you will.
But, I guess there’s already a little reading device on the market ($359) – called a Kindle. It could be awesome, if it weren’t so expensive. And it could be awesome, if you don’t already have a laptop. But if you’ve GOT a little-ish computer already, you might as well just use it, right? That’s what I’m thinking.
That’s all I have to say about the future, for now.
But! Speaking of internetability skills and new sources of happiness, I streamed a live Fleet Foxes show at DC’s Black Cat last night, via NPR. I chatted on AIM with Colin Meloy, the intern at NPR’s All Songs Considered. Then I slept and dreamed of four-part harmonies. If you don’t know Fleet Foxes, you might as well download “White Winter Hymnal,” one of their most enchanting numbers.
