get up on some sunny day and run

patty griffin. i had forgotten how much i love her. we saw her at acl live the other night, and i remembered. she is spectacular. her last album was written in honor of her late father.

and so, i think this song is a fitting tribute to my grandfather, "bumpy," who lost a long, mean battle today. bumpy was a dignified man with staggering one-liners and the best habit of adding a -y or
-ie to his loved-ones' names. he inherited his tender heart from my great grandmother, margery, and he nurtured that same heart in my dad. i will miss him dearly.

going home

i had such a lovely time in ohio. i was able to have qt with some of my dearest people. i visited one of my favorite places on earth, the cleveland museum of art. i was thrown a gorgeous, low-key, low-pressure shower. i got to do yoga with my mom! and yoga with scott! and yoga instructed by my best friend--she is amazing! i am so stinking proud of her. i could cry. again.

i am always blown away by how beautiful my home is in the summertime. oh, ohio.

i even had a little time to explore music...

i was looking forward to the perfume genius show. and now, i am even more psyched. he is killing it with this new release. "queen".

try flowing to this. seriously. chris is the man. (scott: thank you!!!) "wicked game," chris isaak/soul clap edit.

my friend, npr, told me about this track. it's the bassist from future islands. lovely ditty. the peals, "lonestar" (like texas. how apropos.)

i was "going home" by ásgeir. i came back with a full soul.

what do i look like to you?

darkside is nicolas jaar and dave harrington. if you like jaar's haunting voice and harrington's accompaniment, i recommend you check out their fall album, psychic.
