EVE

oh god why am I up so early

1. fleet op called for 2300 Sunday night
2. I figure "why not" and fit out a blackbird for cheap
3. fly blackbird to 77s and get into reinforcement convoy
4. convoy gets to the objective AND I DON'T DIE
5. we all warp to the tower at 7-1 AND I DON'T DIE THEN EITHER
6. we then warp to the gate and kill the enemy right left and center despite horrible lag
SOMEHOW I SURVIVE THIS TOO
7. back to the tower, where I repair armor on a bunch of people, a nice safe rear-area job
8. then I get bored with this and go back to the gate. This time my EW cruiser gets popped,
BUT SOMEHOW MY POD WARPED OUT AND I DIDN'T DIE.
9. so then I get into a rifter, which is a really speedy little frigate, and zoom around blowing up abandoned enemy drones, popping empty wrecks, and looting full ones. Rifters don't have a lot of cargo space, so I fill up pretty quick and have to drop it off.
10. The enemy keeps dribbling into the system, getting tackled by other people, and blown up by friendly sniping battleships. I always get there too late, and after about 3 iterations of this realize "ZOMG it's 4 in the morning!" So I log off at the tower. This is the first fleet op in months that I've gone on and not died. Booya.

black tie white noise

This album is five kinds of awesome. It's largely in the style of Let's Dance, which is one of my favorite Bowie albums, but is considerably more surreal and upbeat. The Wikipedia article says that the main external influence on the album was his marriage to Iman ("The Wedding Song") although the suicide of his brother ("Jump They Say") and the death of guitarist Mick Ronson probably had some impact on the music as well. Aside from the vocals and lyrics, one of the things I like best about Black Tie White Noise is Bowie's sax playing, which has a very Arabic feel to it. I think I'm going to be listening to this a lot.
