He's so funny. I listened to his thing about describing Easter to his French class until I could recite the damn thing.

I kept looking at my brother over our holiday weekend and going "A flying bell? That's fucked up."

Ah! There you are :) Matt's folks got me a gift card to the local music` store.. I picked up Norah Jones's latest as well as The Push Stars "Paint the Town" because I love The Push Stars.. and who doesn't?

But.. I have room for about 2 cds left.. and since you and I are usually *like this* about books.. I thought I might poke you for music too.. Normally I'm a folk/celtic/drooling-Great-Big-Sea-fangirl kinda gal but I am open for suggestion. :D

Mmm, gift card. So much fun!

Ok, for celtic-y type stuff, try The Paperboys, The Waterboys (Fisherman's Blues is my favourite), Spirit of the West (early - Go Figure or Save This House, or a fantastic compilation of Scottish punk/rock/whatever called Folk 'n' Hell.

For folk/alt.country, I highly recommend the Be Good Tanyas, Neko Case and Carolyn Mark. Fabulous fun stuff.

And for something a little more to the rock/pop side, try The New Pornographers, The Gay (both those groups are from Vancouver) and Belle & Sebastian.

Meanwhile, I'm going to go off and try to find some Push Stars to listen to, because I've never even heard of them! How is that possible?

See, I knew this would work. :) I love Belle & Sebastian and my copy of Folk n' Hell is worn to bits :)

For The Push Stars start with either After the Party (with the fantastic "Minnesota") or their latest Paint The Town with the adorable "Keg on my Coffin."

They sound a bit like someone poured attitude on a lounge band. The lead singer wrote most of GBS's Sea of No Cares album with them up in NF and you can hear it. Anyway.. I hope you like them.

And thanks!

Note to self: never write replies when you're being hustled out the door, because you will lose both parentheses and HTML tags. Sigh.
