So I stumbled across this band by accident. One of my old co-workers was obsessed with these kids, but I always thought she was a little insane so I never bothered. But they’re insanely good. I just picked up their record last night on our road trip and its awesome. I interviewed them recently for BAS.com, so go check it out! And if you’ll be at Treasure Island this weekend, see them on the Bridge Stage at noon. You’ll seriously be in for a show.

its beautiful and warm out today in sf, so if you’re reading this post, i suggest you get off your computer and go to dolores! i just finished a warm load of laundry and i’m in need of some catch up work, which makes me sad. but go out, grab an ice cream cone and go slip-n-sliding with your friends for me!

♥ so i’ve been obsessed with this sign last week ever since i saw it in one of the photo essays on the selby. i’m super stoked that i finally found a place i can buy it from online. they’re a little steep, but i think if i frame them all, they’ll last forever!

♥ gala over at iCiNG published a list awhile back of not-so-typical date activities. i’m totally in love with it and i think its a great place to grab inspiration from, whether you’re in need of some romance or trying to rekindle the flame.

the indie mart is coming up in a week and i couldn’t be more excited. i’ll be tabling with stu in the warm sun and there will be lots of shit talking, lots of laughs and lots of bloody marys. i’m hoping to spend a little cash and a little time with the cuties that frequent, including the lovely kelly, who is basically who i wanna be when i grow up. if you’re in sf, this is a FREE event where you can drink, shop, see some local bands and get a number, all in one place. trust me, its where you should be next weekend. ;]

also, on an ending note, i went and caught kelli rudick at amnesia with stu this week and the girl has got skills. i still wonder how she’s not traveling the world, but her loop station use is pretty awesome.

now go out and chase the sun!



as if music can’t get anymore amazing.

i love when you suddenly realize that a song you love is actually part of your life, especially when its one you didn’t write. the heart-filling feeling it gives you is unlike any other. its this manic charge that makes you realize music can truly be universal, despite the fact that it is so deeply personal.

...but i'm trying.

...but i'm trying.

“french navy”
camera obscura

spent a week in a dusty library
waiting for some words to jump at me
we met by a trick of fate
french navy, my sailor mate
we met by the moon on a silvery lake
you came my way
said, I want you to stay

you, with your dietary restriction
said you loved me with a lot of conviction
i was waiting to be struck by lightning
waiting for somebody exciting
like you
oh, the thing that you do
you make me go, ooooo
with the things that you do (you do, you do)

i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it
i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it

i’ll be criticized for lending out my art
i was criticized for letting you break my heart
why would i stand for disappointed looks
fully grown but i’m all on tender hooks

oooo, with the looks
on tender hooks,
oooo, with the looks, the looks, the looks

i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it
i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it

relationships were something i used to do
convince me they are better for me and you
we met by a trick of fate
french navy, my sailor

i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it
i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it

i’ll be excited when i start helping ian with his magazine…i’ll get to be able to write about music again.
in the meantime, i can’t stop thinking about how nice monday night was and how much i’m going to miss you. i hope i get to do it again.

i hate to admit it, but its true.
