Train of thought (crosspost)

I really want to write a coherent LJ post about some personal stuff that happened lately at the moment, but I really can't. My train of thought keeps slipping and ends up branching into multiple and different issues. It's like before I should write this, perhaps I should explain further how it came about, and before writing about how it came about, I should write about before that, and so on...

Is it maybe I keep seeing the big picture that's so hard for me to explain? But then I've been a lousy narrator in most of what I write. So far, the only related thought I could say is that my attention and memory span is so short that I usually forgot the last sentence that I wrote after I've deleted it. It really is out of sight, out of mind, no?

So far the only interesting thing I can mention now is that during a bit of people-watching on the side of the main road (while I was waiting for my mom), I saw some foreign tourists walking around, and then there was a (bit) little old lady who was wearing a pink shirt and carried a pink umbrella. She got up where she was sitting (presumely waiting for the bus), walked up to a lamp post and started to argue with it, as indicated by the gestures of her arms and mouth yapping wide open. That was somewhat weird.

Ah well, I also picked up Gorillaz's second album, Demon Days at Popular Book Store. "Feel Good Inc." and a few other tracks were quite good, but overall the whole album can't really get break through the "just okay" level. I need a few more listens before I can judge with a certain degree of confirmation on this album.

Though at the first listen, I was sort of regretting not getting Maroon 5's album, Songs about Jane instead. Perhaps I might be wrong too.

Here is my list of albums to get, in no order of urgency... :P

Kraftwerk - Minimum-Maximum (don't think it's available in Malaysia yet)
Gorillaz - Gorillaz (saw a version with a bonus AVCD disc, looks good)
Gorillaz - Demon Days (got that, I can safely strike this off now)
Maksim - The Piano Player (saw only Variations Part I&II, I'm getting this one first)
Maroon 5 - Songs about Jane (listened to it through their official site and man, the songs are indeed good)
Enigma - The Cross of Changes (for the first time, I think Enigma has to take the back seat for the moment)
Enigma - Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! (ditto here, I'm interested in unheard/unfamiliar stuff for me ears)

And guess what was lurking on the top right hand corner of a CD rack on the wall, and being sold for RM16?

It was the Axel F Crazy Frog single. There were even commercials about it on TV.

Yes, the whole world is doomed now.

(Yes, this post was originally written in LJ, but I'm too lazy to change that sentence. :P)

Sidenote: Blogger's dashboard interface seems to be screwed up for quite some time already. Does someone care???
