We were in ann arbor this past weekend. Mandy was interviewing at the U of M Emergency Medicine residency program. We also hung out with friends, and went to the over the rhine show at the ark. It was good. It was especially good to be able to see becky, to hug her and hold her hand, even though it makes her cry. But we had a good talk, and some silly ann arbor boutique shop experiences. I just wish there was more time to spend with friends. good friends, ones who care. So I raise my glass to those who love much.

It seems like lately the artists that I like are blowing up in popularity. Feist is getting lots of radio play, and also is in three commercials that I can think of, LG chocolate, ipod nano, and HSBC direct. Regina Spektor is on a JC Penney commercial. A JC Penney commercial!!! I can’t believe it! Sufjan is so big that he’s hated. Page France had a song on Weeds. And I can’t stop hearing the freaking beatles wherever I go. I heard them first, dammit!
Lordy lord, on vinyl it’s amazing…
I went to Indiana this past weekend, and saw 4 innovative, talented artists/bands. In order of appearance, David Bazan, Danielson, My Brightest Diamond and Sufjan Stevens (and the
Butterfly Brigade). I slept only a few moments each night, but that didn’t stop me from having a damned good time. My sincere thanks to Matt, Dan, Paul, Bobby and Ryann for letting me have this music extravaganza of a weekend. Pictures will be posted soon… Keep watching this space.

So I inquired about some information for a show that I saw on asthmatic kitty.
I was wondering where the show was. I can't find any information on
the Magick House on the internet. Also, how much are tickets, and
where can I get them? Thanks.
thanks matt, it was a really good concert. Too bad we had to stand the whole time. Our feet started to hurt around hour 2.
For those not in the know, mandy and I went to a Regina Spektor concert in Boulder tonight. She's good. Strong voice, knows what she's doing, comes up with interesting ways to play/sing things. But now, I have to write a paper. The draft is due tomorrow morning. It's 4 AM right now, and I have class at 9. Wee!!! No sleep tonight.
