Bishop Allen: A Hip Band to Love

I first came across Bishop Allen’s music in 2004, which makes me feel very cool. Unfortunately, I liked them but forgot about them for a few years, probably because I went sailing and wasn’t checking out any new music from the boat.

Fortunately, I re-discovered them through various music blogs, and it’s improved my quality of life. I won’t try and describe the music, except to say that:

My favorite is Busted Heart.

My Mom’s favorite would be Butterfly Nets.

Fall in love with Bishop Allen today.

My New Headphones: Sennheiser PX100

If you use headphones a lot, while you’re at work or the gym, I can’t recommend my Sennheiser PX100 headphones enough. They were given to my by my friend John, who made several outrageous claims about their quality.

He was right. These things are phenomenal. I wear headphones about 5 hours per day, and the quality of the sound, paricularly the bass, is nothing short of outstanding. They’re lightweight and comfortable, and they allow a bit of ambient noise in so that no one can talk about me while my back is turned.
