2013

not "and the Banshees"

Got my mitts on a copy of Siouxsie's soon-to-be-released solo effort, "Mantaray". It's starts off strong with my three favorite tracks and then goes back and forth in mediocrity. That was my immediate take on first listening to it a few days ago. Since then some of my initial so-so ones have been growing on me but I still wouldn't add them to the "Good" category. In summary:

The Good: "Into a Swan", "About To Happen", "Here Comes That Day"

The So-so: "Loveless", "One Mile Below", "They Follow You", "Heaven And Alchemy"

The Meh: "If It Doesn't Kill You", "Drone Zone", "Sea Of Tranquility"

BTW, I had previously seen the video to "Into a Swan" and, quite frankly, I wasn't impressed by it.

2013

it's going to be a long season

After a promising showing last year I had high hopes for my 49ers this season. Sure, they won their opening game but just barely and it was U.G.L.Y. (you ain't got no alibi) Where was Vernon Davis? Gore wasn't spectacular either. If that's the level of their play for the entire season then they're looking at loses in the next 4 weeks (Rams, Steelers, Seahawks and Ravens), and, they'll likely end up with a 4-12 record (assuming wins against the Falcons, Cards and Browns.) Not good. Maybe they just need some more time to gel together. That's what I'm trying to convince myself.
