Held in Place

Sorry, I don't have much to report- I have lots of new music, and a few video picks to go over, but due to circumstances, both positive and negative, I haven't had much of a chance to listen or watch.
But, this is meant to be a "web log" as much as anything else, so I'll report as honestly as possible what I've seen and heard, even though I know this will be of very little interest to anyone.
Heard- Tones on Tail: Everything! - Yes, I dig Bauhaus/Tones on Tail and early Love and Rockets.  Later on, they decided they were pop stars, and the music became uninteresting, but Tones on Tail was the most interesting period for these musicians. That having said, this is old and well known enough that I believe that if you would be interested, you have already heard them.
Seen- TV- Multiple seasons of The Amazing Race. No, I have no real interest in the show. But, I have interest in my wife, and she enjoys the show for the glimpses of travel destinations. Also, both seasons of The Booth at the End - which is basically a very long episode of the Twilight Zone.
Movies- All old, I'm afraid. I watched Repo Man for the two hundredth time ( that might not be an exaggeration) and I watched Kiss Me Deadly for the tenth, and Nicholas and Alexandra for the twentieth.

But, all in all, I've been held in place by a combination of the holidays, unexpected car troubles, family business, and work frenzy. Maybe next week?
