I can listen to whatever I want and you can’t stop me

One of the benefits of unemployment is complete control of the stereo. I’m at home all day, alone. No one can tell me what to play or when or how loud. It’s just me and my thousands of albums. And the cats, of course, but they don’t usually weigh in.

I could listen to my iPod at my previous job. But people were always interrupting me for work stuff. (The nerve, don’t they know it’s all about the music?) I got through maybe three albums per day, on a good day. At one of my jobs, I actually had a stereo in my office. Of course I shared the office with someone, which meant sharing the stereo. So every second album played sucked. At least until I got an officemate with good taste – Bridget, the best officemate ever.

Now I’m in complete control of my destiny (musically, at least). And what better way to celebrate my freedom than show just how awesome my taste in music really is?

Here’s what I listened to today:

Sun Kil Moon
– April
Neko Case – Blacklisted
The Weepies – Say I Am You
Boards Of Canada – Peel Session
Boards Of Canada – Trans Canada Highway
The Stratford 4 – The Revolt Against Tired Noises
