Stop the Umpcoos and Fishing Cougar timber sales!

life update #5469078

Well... farming is still going great. I'm 7/10 of the way done with the internship portion of the summer, and then I'll be a regular farm worker until the end of August, when I go to Japan! Not much has happened since the last time I updated. I guess my tan has gotten even darker. This coming weekend I'm going to the Oregon Country Fair.



The other day I finally brought myself to clean out my music library. I haven't done that the entire 3 years I've had this computer, so there was a lot of crap on it. I realized that I didn't need 12 Queen albums. Actually, no one needs 12 Queen albums. Other music that did not need to exist on my computer: Run DMC, the Grease soundtrack, terrible hipster music that I downloaded from music blogs and never listened to, low-quality live recordings of punk bands (especially when they contain the same songs as the studio albums, and the studio albums are only slightly better quality live recordings), Jim Morrisons's spoken word album, and an entire Cascada album (I kept the song Everytime We Touch for, um, sentimental reasons. [Side note: Yes, on the album it is spelled "everytime" rather than "every time".]).

Anyway, it's nice to be able to put my entire library on shuffle and not have to skip every other song. When I don't put the whole thing on shuffle I end up listening to one album over and over again until I'm sick of it. (I've been listening to Reinventing Axl Rose by Against Me! since, oh, spring break. Seriously, that's an awesome album.)
