Yesterday was a Sonic Youth day for me but I think today it might be New Order? But I can't presently find the one or two New Order cds I own, which pisses me off because it may mean that's one more thing I wasn't aware went awol when I moved until I started looking for it. At least I have things on my iTunes but I still fetishize the album object and so it makes me sad--even if none of my albums are vinyl. So I am burning myself another copy of (Best of) because nothing sounds better right now than "Age of Consent."

I still really love reading you on music. I remember back when you were writing so eloquently about _Control_ I was trying to figure out why New Order has always had a more viscerally strong place in my heart than Joy Division. I always wondered if it was really just reducible to what was played on the radio more in my youth and therefore part of my bones or my bloodstream or something. I feel like months ago I figured out something more nuanced than that. But now I can't remember...

New Order has hope. I love Joy Division equally. But I don't listen to them to feel better, except in the sense that art makes the world more tolerable.

You need to get those CDs back. I take that kind of "borrowing" very, very seriously.
