In the absence of anything even remotely resembling an intelligent thought, here's some music instead. Fatima Spar und Die Freedom Fries, who from what I'm reading have been quite popular in the Viennese Club scene for years, but since I and the Viennese Club scene don't really mix I only kind of stumbled across them today completely by chance, but, very nice. Turkish and Balkan and kind of swing-y and really feel-good.

I feel I haven't had much to say lately either. -- I wouldn't feel too bad about not mixing with the club scene. I've never been to a club in my life -- though most of my friends in college escaped off to Washington every other weekend to go.

Could I ask you a quick grammatical question?

If I want to say "Today is the first day of Autumn" in German, would I say:

"Heute ist der erste Tag des Herbstes."

or

"Heute ist den ersten Tag des Herbstes."

or something completely different?

Neither one sounds quite right...

'Heute ist der erste Tag des Herbstes' is grammatically correct. ('Der' because it's nominative; 'den' is an accusative article for masculine nouns, or a dative plural article.)

You could also say 'Heute ist Herbstbeginn', 'Heute fängt der Herbst an' or 'Heute beginnt der Herbst', but it's perfectly all right like that.
