The final tally:
New Order: 7 (including mine)
Orkestra Obsolete: 13
Mind you, I really liked the cover by Orkestra Obsolete. I thought it was clever and well done. I just loved the original by New Order, so there you go. I hear New Order and I'm instantly transported back to my first post-college apartment in NYC. My roommates and I spent more than a little time after work sitting around listening to cassettes and/or CDs (this was one of them) playing three handed euchre. Yep, I was a wild child.
I know I've been scarce in the blogging world. I'm a bit burned out right now. That's what the A to Z does to me (even though I REALLY ENJOYED it this year). There is this point, though, somewhere around the letter "O" when I always realize my life has been completely taken over by blogging and the A to Z. I'm out of balance, I'm grumpy, I'm not getting things done, I'm freefalling. And then it's a push just to make it to the end. If if weren't for Battle of the Bands, I might very well fall off the grid for a month. (Every action has an opposite and equal reaction.) And then in June my equilibrium is restored, so I fall back into normal patterns. Of course, I'm going away again this summer for about six weeks (completely upsetting the blogging apple cart), but more on that later.
So, if I've been absent and not loving you on your blog, please know that I still adore you. I'm just setting my world to rights in all the other aspects (well, mostly... and somewhat). I will get back to blogging.
In the meantime, here's something hilarious for you to watch until I get myself together. If you're a Walking Dead fan, you'll REALLY appreciate this one. If you're not, I think you'll still think it's pretty darn funny. I say "Zombie Apocalypse" and you still get the gist.
