Freestuff 05

I'm currently enjoying my first pieces of the Missus' enormous pile of free junk she got at the Bob's Hogs and Weiner Pigs Vendor Expo. I was a little shaken when she came back with only 1 tote bag full of stuff, but she assuaged my fears by telling me the other eight boxes will be shipped this week. Yep, free shipping for free stuff. Most of which she isn't sure what is. It will be like Christmas in April for the Frinklin house.

Anyway, of the pile that did make it home I'm reading Players:The Mysterious Identity of William Shakespeare by Bertram Fields. It's a nice read, but reviews that I've read noted some serious scholarly goofs, so I don't take it too seriously. Also, she picked up Tori Amos' new CD The Beekeeper. I was a bigger Tori fan back in college -I know, it made people think I was gay then too- and this album sounds much like the early albums like Little Earthquakes. Beekeeper needs an editor though, at 19 songs plus a hidden track it's just too damned long. The material is there for a great album.

I appluad you for having the strength and self confidence to make the tori amos confession here on your blog.

Ehhh... I'm married, I no longer care if people think I have questionable musical taste.

Though I will mention I won major points with women for liking Tori back in college.
