Howard and Nestor

I hear (via superelectric) that there's a new New Order album coming. You can check out the video for the lead single and everything.

The thing is ... well, New Order will always have a special place in my heart as the First Band I Ever Truly Loved. The first time I ever heard Bizarre Love Triangle was in the back seat of a Honda Civic while driving through the Loop in St. Louis. It was a magical night and when I fell in love it wasn't just that I thought it was the best song I'd ever heard, it was as tho' I'd never even heard music before.

That being said, hearing that there's a new New Order album is sort of like hearing that there's a new issue of Nintendo Power coming out. If Nintendo Power had come out like once every 8 years or something.

Unrelated, but sort of tangential seeing as how you brought up Nintendo Power...

I noticed you linked to the xbox page regarding the new stuff the Xbox 2 will have. All I could think of was Greg Costikyan's quote (see boingboing):

"Who was at the Microsoft keynote? I don't know about you but it made my flesh crawl. [laughter] The HD era? Bigger, louder? Big bucks to be made! Well not by you and me of course. Those budgets and teams ensure the death of innovation. Was your allegiance bought at the price of a television?"
