Weather report: drizzling slightly here, and the sky is clear and vivid, like the difference between watching a 20-year-old piece of high-quality video and a generation-old degraded reel of flimsy film stock. Emotional weather report: contemplative, mellow, on the happy side of sad, on the "could be better" side of "generally okay." Brain in good shape, body still on rebound from month-long illness. Soundtrack: Yes, Petra Haden, Paul Stanley solo, Pere Ubu, Tori Amos, Todd Rundgren, Penderecki.
