Currently Listening
It's Never Been Like That
By Phoenix

Shots from my Yosemite trip can be found below -- It was beyond words, I wish I could've stayed longer and definitely will the next time - Really awe-inspiring, but I'll let the pictures visually paint the picture for you.

Check out the new album by Phoenix, it's great.

And PLEASE check out this clip (along with the others on the site!!) of Thom Yorke doing a track off his fabulous new solo album live and solo acoustic! I can't wait to see the rest of the show when it is available.

a lazy post

I caught a few shows at the Mountain Winery this past week and through the powers that are youtube, many of the funny and memorable moments that I would normally have to express with written words can now be viewed instead. They're, unfortunately, amateur videos captured on what I'd imagine as small cameras or phones with movie capturing features, so sound and picture are not of the best. I'm sure that'll remedy itself soon, but check out some fun moments witnessed through the eyes of yours truly in the past few...

Nickel Creek's version of "toxic" with more than your typical... performance by mr. christopher thile.


The band breaking into my favorite cover of the night, Randy Newman's "short people" with acting included - It's so cute and hilarious!


I have a feeling that it's you, Steph, who made those videos - If it is... Then thank you for putting them up!

Also caught Damien Rice at the same venue - He was hilarious, funny, emotional - Just as expected. Fortunately, his songs lend perfectly towards the venue and he and his band took full advantage of the winery and had three wine shots which led to some mischeaviously fun behavior :) Unfortunately, the venue is one that has a strict curfew of 10:30pm (you're kidding me...) and at about 10:32, they cut off the power while his band was still jamming!
