While Dave was being sick, I did manage to finish my first real public style! Technically the one I use on my journal now is public, but I don't think anyone would want to use it without serious modification because it's totally based on my website. But this one is for the people (well, the people with paid accounts) and I'm proud of it. All the IDs and previews were posted in lj_style last night and you can read that post here. So far everyone seems to be impressed, and I have to admit, I'm a little impressed myself. The calendar view is pretty :)
I've been listening a lot to dave's music, he's got the ben folds five album, "The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner" in MP3. It's an incredible album. Seriously. I regret not buying it, but I remember exactly what I was thinking when it came out. I was thinking that I already owned two ben folds five albums and don't buy many cds and was having one of those, "is this artist good enough that I must own every single album?" crisises. I do that a lot, because I don't buy many CDs really. I've been buying more since mp3 craze started and I discovered amazon.com used cds, but I'm still kind of reserved. It's weird.
