Yeah, here comes the water...

Fun time at local stores: I picked a hardcover original print of Stephen King's It at Half-Price Books on Saturday...for A DOLLAR. That's right: 100 cents. I swear. Perfect condition and everything, except missing the dust jacket.

I also bought the Velvet Revolver CD, Contraband. I'll give it ****. Not all of the songs are fantastic (and none can match "Slither," the single that's all over the radio right now), but Scott Weiland can still bring it vocally, and the GN'R boys can still play, especially Slash. (This album blows away Axl's stuff easily, because it, you know, EXISTS. Axl's still "working a new album" in the same sense one would say "Ernest Hemingway's working on a new novel.")

Astros update: we beat the Angels, now it's four with the only team below us in the Central, the Pirates. May the Baseball Gods be with Tim Redding tonight. Please.

And we have acquired the new baseball game for this year: ESPN Major League Baseball, for PS2. Great game. Currently, the Astros are 26-5. Much better than reality.

Yeah, here comes the water
It comes to wash away the sins of you and I
This time you'll see
Like holy water
It only burns you faster than you'll ever dry
This time with me
