So Excited!

In lieu of a much more serious post that will be coming tomorrow, I will instead offer up this little slice of aural heaven. The band, The Broken West I discovered last year after hearing them on NPR. I bought the album, 'Now or Heaven' on a whim, and I can honestly say it's one of my favorite albums of the last 5 years. Period. No qualifiers, no I like it in an ironic, Squeeze is the soundtrack to post college ennui kind of way. If you dig great pop songrwriting with witty and charmingly sad lyrics, this band is for you. It's not heavy or country, like most of the stuff I like. But it's a welcome dose of guarded optimistic sunshine, which I think we all need.


These guys are playing Sunday night in Brooklyn, and I am more than a little stoked!
Here's the video to their single off the album, "Perfect Games".

And A Wee Happy St. Paddy's Day To Ya!

In lieu of getting good and ripped, puking on your Uncle Seamus and punching your dear ole' Ma, instead watch this gem of a movie.
One of my absolute favorites, and the one that most definitely let me know that I was choke full o' soul
Say it once, say it loud,
'I'm black and I'm proud!'

Good Night, Sweet Prince

Horton Foote, 1916-2009

The American Theater has lost a true giant. A true Texas original. Although I was a bigger fan of his screenplays, just knowing that he was out there, year after year with yet another well written, emotionally truthful play, made me happy.

Too bad it can't be my BoSox, but as the Dodgers are my adopted team, this will do just fine.
