autumn really exists. i had forgotten how beautiful it is! getting a friend, family, and fall fix was good for my soul. as i drove the junkia around town, i played some old cds, circa 2002ish. memories...
dear friend, i will miss you. but picturing you flying to a happier place brings me great joy. i hold you close to my heart. whatever you decide to do, i hope you are able to leap with confidence. see you soon!
i've never seen the pixies live before. but i will on wednesday. and i am really excited to see the fuck buttons tear it up again... all two of 'em! but i will admit i am pissed that it's at my least favorite venue in austin. austin music hall, redeem yourself this week, please.
train hobos dying in an earthquake? never would have guessed.
"here comes your man"
with your feet on the air and your head on the ground
y'all. yeah, that's it. i moved to texas so that i could use "y'all" without weird looks. (oh, and so i could have a koozie on hand at all times without getting heckled.) let's be honest, there's another word in this song i like. a lot.

blonde redhead's new album is coming out the 14th. cannot. wait! hit their website, or sign up below to download this track for free. http://www.blonde-redhead.com/. oh, and see them in austin in december. it's a dream concert for me!
it was a perfectly temperatured night in austin last night. and it rejuvenated my austin-spirits, being one of the best nights i have had since i have been home.
if i ever move from austin, one of the things i will undoubtedly miss is the alamo drafthouse movie theaters. who doesn't love the option to eat and drink while you watch a movie? and who isn't excited that they are going to be showing waiting for guffman on the big screen in one of their series'?! more than once, i have immediately gone home to download one of the remixes they have played during their alamo events previews. the latest is a track from girly band, au revoir simone.
crummy week, i showed you. turned it around with a show at one of my forgotten favorite venues, the cactus cafe. that venue kicks ass--the acoustics and intimacy are hard to beat. scott and i saw a local band, the eastern sea, play a free show there last night. good luck to those boys and girl on their tour. here's to hoping their zeal is embraced on the road like it is by their fans in austin.
so excited to see sweet sufjan stevens at the long center next month. his sound is hard to describe. electronic? folk? a bit little of everything. mix it up, sufjan, i like it. download his new album, the age of adz: sufjanstevens.bandcamp.com/album/the-age-of-adz
equally as excited to check out a musician at the long center. so fancy.
