+ You know when you here something and it is PERFECT, so perfect you simultaneously are envious you did not string that bit of phrase together and want to listen to it over and over. The refrain of Lord Huron's TAKE ME BACK TO THE NIGHT WE MET is that phrase. I'd HEARD the song, but not really listened to the actual words, as I sometimes don't when the melody is so lovely. Then I read the words on tumblr and they said:

I had all and then most of you
some and now none of you

And, gente, I was SLAYED. How beautiful is that? It captures absolutely every sad song, every loss, all the angst with none of the treacly bits. Just amazing. Listening highly recommended

+ Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats- Pure energy and delight described as 'folk, Americana and vintage rhythm & blues.' Whatever it is, it will get you up and dancing! Wonderfully diverse band in the video and a vocalist that is consummately at ease with himself and his music


+ Lover and I are taking a trip to Portland in June and I've realized I did not plan enough time to do what we planned on doing. It costs $490 to change the flight. :-( I'm not sure what to do.

+ If I can just make it to July I will be past a couple of time-suck projects and can return to buying kid books for the system, which gives me life.

+ Reading Embers through has gotten me thinking of the fic again. I do still love those boys very much. I'm thinking of maybe just a few vignettes or something, of fics that have been rattling around in my head all this time? No promises.

Got another meeting, gente. I'm hoping to post more this weekend.

Yay for kid books! I always love pushing for YA, myself. :) Ordering books is the best!

hopefully you can fit in most of what you want to do/see in Portland - but the important thing is setting aside a couple hours to meet me for coffee/drinks/dinner (something) at some point while you're here!

Nathaniel and the night sweats are great, but they remind me of the time I was watching mtv unplugged with my mom. The allman brothers were on and I mentioned that they were an early interracial classic rock band.

Mom immediately shot back "Where interracial?" so I had to point out one of their two drummers. It's like that with the Sweats-blink and you'll miss.

(Mom's a Little Richard fan-she'd have been happier if they were two/thirds nonwhite or more.)

Yeah, I love "S.O.B." A fun, upbeat song about alcohol withdrawal and the DT's.

That is a lot of money to change a flight.

Hope you can cram everything in.

Feels like I've missed a whole lifetime. I hope you are doing good regardless.

Well, I haven't left LJ. I've just expanded and crosspost and crossread. If that makes sense.

I get what you mean though. Writing your thoughts down in a journal (of any kind) does help to set your mind straight. At least that's how it works for me.
