Investigation- Resident requested assistance with cabinets. PSD had Super...– Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department report. Phenomenal. Police action for cabinet assistance? Also, “investigation”? For the 10 millionth time, I LOVE IT HERE.
LISTEN: I Want to Go Home
My poetic life: The soundtrack to my entering the office building this morning at 7:40AM (after leaving the same building at 10:15PM) is “I Want to Go Home” by James. The sentiment is sound, but the song is just brilliant. LISTEN!

I'm a winner, man
Ryan-as-Stan: Winners never quit, and quitters never win.
Me-as-Me: I thought it was smilers never lose, and frowners never win.
Ryan-as-Stan: That's true also.

Still crazy about this song. Laura Marling’s voice is fascinating to me, plus the song itself is so insightful, but in a gentle, wistful sort of way that doesn’t hurt my feelings at all.

But there’s also the wondrous “Every Morning I Reread the Postcards,” “25 All Right,” “Claim to Lame,” and the title track (and its brilliant reprise). The song...
I can't simply ignore it, darling
I love the Divine Comedy, so how is it that it didn’t even occur to me that Neil Hannon was behind the music in the IT Crowd? COME ON, JANE. He did Father Ted and everything. Perhaps I could have overlooked the theme- sure, it’s all computery and weird. Potentially tough to define a source. But the brilliant Emergency Services 0118 ad?!

There a few songs that I remember hearing for the first time - “Supersonic” by Oasis. “Do You Remember the First Time” by Pulp. “The Other Man” by Sloan.
