Hot chicken!

Somewhen between her turning 22, us turning cosmopolitan (dinner at Cue, The Government Inspector at the Guthrie) and the purchase of a necklace by Jaime Fisher at Gallery 360 for her wedding dress, we got into a wine-induced rhythm of future talk.

Could be Waynesboro, Virginia, perhaps Mongtomery, Alabama.

Long story short: I finally told her that I'm willing to follow, especially if it means I get to vend peanuts at a ballpark. And I warned her to stop throwing out suggestions like, "how about we pick a city [always Seattle when we talk], go there, and then find something."

She makes me silly saying things like that. Same too, but more giddy, when she asks to come along to Neverthriving meetings to work on club passing take-aways.

Until the future, we're sticking with the cosmopolitan + bike riding life (she rode for the first time in 9 years the other night).

Various culture:
+ Weisman Art Museum New Deal art by Gerome Kamrowski and Dewey Albinson (nice trees).
+ Of Montreal covers other bands: downloads
+ Hot Off the Press show, especially Roberta Allen
+ Musical saw feature and video.

For a minute I thought it would be people covering Of Montreal. Of Montreal covering others is way more interesting.

(And somehow, them doing "More Than a Feeling" just works.)

Wow, great find. "Sway" by the Stones is sweet. Remember when they did Raspberry Beret in Detroit?

Cool musical saw article.
I might have actually seen one of the guys in it, who mentions he played at the NYC saw festival ( http://www.sawlady.com/musicalsawfestival.htm
I was actually there!

Econ, I have that entire show with the Stones, I downloaded it somewhere, I'll have to send it to you (there are one or two other covers on there that aren't on the site for some reason).

Also, I like the fact that they did "Just What I Needed," considering the fact that up until recently, I always expected Barnes to sing the chorus like Ric Ocasek. It's still kind of a blatant rip-off but it's all good.
