Attn Sedaris fans:
www.weta.org Terri Gross is interviewing him on Fresh Air
Brought to your attention by me.. by way of (of all people) my father. Huh.
and if you miss it, the link in the fresh air archive
which i'll have to listen to later myself. i think i probably bookmarked it the first time around too and never managed to listen.
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.
Note to self: never write replies when you're being hustled out the door, because you will lose both parentheses and HTML tags. Sigh.
