One of the most awkwardly timed moments of my TV show cycle: seeing the House season 4 finale Wilson's Heart today on Christmas. That has to be one of the 10 most depressing episodes of any show ever, right? I really should have watched something comic immediately afterwards.

So that Deerhunter show turned into quite the interesting train wreck (in a good, fun way) near the end. When I was first getting into them shortly after Halcyon Digest came out, I assumed Bradford Cox would be one of those super quiet introvert frontmen that didn't say much onstage, but OH WOW would that insanely rambling 20-30 minute segment of stage banter in between the final encore songs (the last of which, "Monomania", was a request where he spent several minutes trying to figure out the right chords) prove my 2011 self wrong, haha. I'm still trying to process all that and I'm glad I recorded it. Fun show overall. Also, between the main Deerhunter set and Bradford's solo Atlas Sound set, every effects pedal ever invented must have been used.

Feeling in major need of a social life rebuild / overhaul right now and that if I could just get that going, life would be so much more awesome. I've been alone with my thoughts far too long, which is just not a good place to be when I'm currently so frustrated with my job on top of that. I need to maybe organize a small scale gathering, get together more with certain Facebook friends (it would be particularly cool to reconnect with intriguing people I haven't seen in years or only met once or twice), go on a very long overdue dating spree... just anything to get me going. It's just such a struggle for me initiating things at all socially and I'm always battling insecurity over how much of an awkward mess I am.
