Finally gets it...
I found out a couple of days ago through Jules that Common Rotation is taking orders for their new album. On the web site, the name of the album appears to be "Isalie". Okaaaaay. No idea what this is referring to - a name? a place? some foreign word?

And then I get an email that they're doing a performance tonight in California, and, oh, by the way, here's a link to where you can buy our new CD, Common Rotation IsaLie.

*groans*

Now I get it! *G*

p.s. I so need a CoRo icon... and a 30STM icon... and so on. I have enough photos; I just need to MAKE one!

p.p.s. Guess I'm spamming tonight because I'm having a hard time making a decision about the house. It's GORGEOUS - 1905 frame house - sort of a tall thin farm house, or a very simple Victorian - completely re-done on the inside to enhance the old touches, not cover them up, just like they did in my old house. It's on a little street - but just a short ways down from where it intersects with a busy street, and between it and the street is a tire store. And on the other side from the tire store? A repair shop. Not the greatest things to look at. But I'm mostly worried about the noise from the traffic, and will it get to me, or am I worrying too much about it? Not something anybody else can help me with, but... grrrr... it's hard to decide!

The house itself sounds beautiful, but I appreciate your concerns about noise.
You know we're on a busyish street; until recently there was a towing company across the alley. Not ideal! But you might find that even a little distance is enough to make street noise bearable.
Go visit during rush hour if you can - that should give you proof. Can you get some trees and shrubs between you and the noise? They can help a lot.
Good luck.

It's a tough call, isn't it? I did go during rush hour, and you can put some between the house and the tire place, but... I think the problem is that the two businesses on Milwaukee both have open parking lots on their corners, so it creates a "V" opening that lets in more noise and traffic view than if they went right up to the sidewalks on the street I'm on. Does that make any sense? If it were only two more houses down, or so - but then I probably couldn't afford it - *G*.

I also just got the idea to look in Deerfield, and I'm finding it's less expensive than the stretch of 'burbs going from Evanston to Lake Forest, yet there's a section near the train station that has a lot of older houses. AND it has a downtown. I'm intrigued...

It does sound like a nice house. It doesn't sound perfect, but it sounds nice. {thoughtful smile}

Out of curiosity, what would you consider perfect? {curious smile}

Well, perfect would be my old house up here! *G*

Or: Built before 1950, brick, 1.5 stories, living room, dining room, kitchen plus an extra room on the main floor (guest room/TV room/library), bedroom upstairs (plus bath), unfinished but dry and clean basement below. All wood floors, plaster walls in neutral colors, a kitchen and bath that don't need an update, air conditioning and heat, exterior in very good condition, a nice little backyard... and a good location. *G*

Yes, but I never quite got a full description of your old house. Oh, I saw the pictures, but I missed some details. {Smile}

That does sound lovely. {SMILE} It would be quite homey. {SMILE}

Well, all of that description applies to my old house... but it also had (squee!) beautiful old leaded glass windows - and I loved it!

Yep, I'm afraid you're right! As much as I LOVE the house and can so see myself in it... I'm having strong doubts about the location.

p.s. did YOU get the name right off the bat? I looked a the site and it's written something more like: "iSALiE", with the small i's the same size as the "caps". Not obvious. *G* Tricksie boys!

you'll make a good decision :)

oh yes *S* - Adam is fond of saying it all the time on stage. also Jordan! - recall a conversation at the Acoustic Cafe? - he was talkig about the DVD "just remember, we were never ourselves infront of the camera, everything you get to see is a lie, Common Rotation is a lie - we are going to get tshirts made!"

The house sounds interesting, but the noise problem would probably drive me crazy. If it's anything I need, it's peace and quiet when I'm at home.

If you're considering looking at other houses in Deerfield, then maybe you should postpone your decision a little longer?

Well, I will wait until the end of the weekend, but, of course, it means that somebody else may get to it first.

And, I agree - I really do want peace and quiet!

The house sounds lovely but the noise level is definitely a concern. I was in a rent to own sort of house several years ago. It was across the street from a garage where the mechanics not only made the usual noise with tools and equipment, but had their music blasting loud enough to be heard OVER the tools and equipment. You might want to visit during peak rush hour/business hours, then again on, say, a Friday night to see what the noise is like.

Oooo... good point - thanks!

Did you hear back from the former acquaintance who won the Emmy?
