Hey! I'm officially an Angelean! A 5.4 on the richter scale!! It felt like being in a boat on a REALLY choppy ocean, for about ten or fifteen seconds. At first, I thought a really big truck was driving by. I hear it was much worse in other parts of town -- things falling off shelves, etc. -- but out here in Venice, it was pretty mild. Everybody's okay, BTW, for those of you who are wondering. 'Twasn't a big one. Scared the crap out of Bayswater, our fat black and white cat, but that's about it.
Eventually we'll plunge into the ocean. But not today.
Unrelated note: currently taking in the new Primal Scream record. It's...strange. I'm so used to them being so dark and dank and scary as shit that what the hell do I make of a cheerful happy 80s pop record?? There's a freakin' disco song on it that sounds like Blur from ten years ago. It's kind of baffling. I'll let you know what I eventually think of it. Right now I'm on the fence.
