Find of the Week

Credit goes to Aquarium Drunkard, an MP3 Blog and fellow vocal proponents of The Hold Steady, for posting this wonderful cover of my favorite Magnetic Fields song “Strange Powers” by my favorite Indie-darlings The Shins!

A very close cover that carries enough personality of the Shins to really make it listenable in a way that these sometimes gimmiky in-joke covers seldom are.

If you dig either band, go give it a listen!

It’s Joule!

Micheal Tagged me to participate in the 6-6-6 flickr meme. You look at the 6th page of your photostream, post the 6th picture on your blog, and tag 6 new participants.

This photo was taken a couple months ago on Annika’s 1st Birthday party! Joule was a dear friend who I met in my first weeks at UC Santa Cruz. I kinda always felt like she was a big-sister during the sometimes difficult first year of living on campus. Since she lived in the apartment (that would then later be occupied by Andrew and Jason!) we would watch the X-Files there every week.

This was this first time I’d seen her in probably 6 years and she had moved across the country (and back) and become a Doctor in the meantime. Jules and I unfortunately had to run shortly after this picture was taken, but I hope to get a better chance to catch-up sometime soon.

As for the 6 people I tag with this meme: Jules, John Forrest, Iason, Matt H, Turtle and Jodi
