Back from the dead

Ever have one of those days where you wake up so sick that you pray for death? Welcome to my yesterday. I've no idea what happened. I'd spent a beautiful, fun weekend down in Philadelphia with friends and had had a fantastic time. I went to bed at a decent hour on Sunday night but awakened Monday to... I'll spare you the gories, but suffice to say I didn't eat very much that day. Also had to cancel my plans for that evening, although I was feeling human again by about 7 last evening.

Really weird.

Anyway, as I was busy in Philly over the weekend, I didn't get a chance to catch the last couple of stages of the Tour De France, which I've been following voraciously on CNNSI.com. Luckily, they ran commentary on each stage, so I did get a chance to go back yesterday and read about the races I missed (at least when I wasn't puking my guts out; sorry, TMI again).

Lance is an amazing guy. Sounds like he might be a bit of a dick in real life, but you have to admire his athleticism and dedication to fighting cancer. Can't say I'd want to meet the guy, though.

Hopefully all the things I have planned for this week will unfold as expected. As long as my weird bug doesn't come back.

Settling my stomach today:

Various - Bond Beat & Bass: The Elektronica James Bond Themes
(a great concept, but badly executed)

Various - DJ TTFuk's Mix 1
(badass Bianca Beeman lays down the grooves)

Takeshi Muto - Expect More From A Past Life
(glitchy downtempo with ambient touches)

Rasputina - Cabin Fever!
(more magic from Melora)

Bill Laswell & Terre Thaemlitz - Web
(20,000 leagues beneath the sea)
