I just took a couple of ibuprofen for a headache that I think resulted from trying to give Blueberry Boat another chance this morning on the way to work. I am blaming my headache on the Fiery Furnaces.

The first time I popped it in, I deemed this album basically unlistenable and stopped before it was done. This time, I got as far as the middle part of "Chief Inspector Blancheflower"* before I turned it off, but it was too late -- it had laid an egg of irritation in my head that just started to open about half an hour ago. Hence the stomping on it with pills.

I am sorry, music people. This album was just not a thing that I was meant to like. I tried.

* It might've only been 1/3 of the way through, or even 1/4. How long is that song anyway? Like ten thousand hours?
